Mary-Kate’s involvement in Ledger’s death

Mary-Kate OlsenWhen it was reported just hours after his death that Heath Ledger had died in Mary-Kate Olsen‘s apartment, her rep immediately denied the allegation. However, it turns out that Mary-Kate is involved — she was the first person Diana Wolozin, the masseuse, called after finding Ledger unconscious. Wolozin was let into the actor’s bedroom by his housekeeper after he didn’t respond to phone calls and knocks on his door. She found him lying at the foot of his bed and used the speed dial on Ledger’s cell phone to call Olsen, who was in California, for help, sources told People.com. Olsen told Wolozin she would call her security people in New York to help. The masseuse waited, then called Olsen back to say she was calling 911. Paramedics and Olsen’s security people arrived at almost exactly the same time. Both the New York Post and New York’s Daily News have reported that Ledger and Olsen were dating.

    You mean the masseuse called Mary-Kate before calling 911?! She must be stupid to have done that. What were the security guards going to do? Watch over him as he died? I mean really, then she waited, and then she figured “hmm… maybe I should call 911, but wait! Let me call back Mary-Kate to let her know first…” OMG.

    She called Mary Kate Olsen…..in CALIFORNIA…..before calling 911??? wtf did she expect Olsen to do, especially on the other side of the country??? Even if she was RIGHT THERE, what the h*ll would she be able to do??? 911 should have been the very first call, how stupid ARE these people?

  5. some guy • January 24, 2008 @ 5:22 PM

    it was important to let her know first because she could tell Uncle Jessie right away

    She might have forgotten the number.

    She’d probably have to practice a different facial expression for going out in public, a sad one. She only seems to have one expression, with that creepy “smile”.

    9-1-1 = emergency (should have been called)
    4-1-1 = information (was not called)
    0-0-0 = Mary Kate (can’t figure out why called)

    she called mary kate to get the number for 911 🙂

  10. Anonymous • January 24, 2008 @ 11:30 PM

    Mary Kate doesn’t know the number for 911, she only knows the numbers that have been programmed into her phone, namely the one for her bodyguards. Someone should tell her the bodyguards are not paramedics and CPR is not an acronym for “Can’t Produce Results”.

    I’m thinking that somewhere between the binges and the purges, Mary Kate lost more than a few brain cells.

    The longer I live, the more I realize that stupidity is gaining ground in the film world.

  12. Tammy • January 25, 2008 @ 7:48 AM

    OMG….. And have the police bothered to question the masseuse… as to why the h*ll she called Mary Kate instead of 911??? Come on…. if you found someone dead (god forbid) and you decided to call someone else… wouldn’t the police question you for not calling 911 ?? I think so. Wtf is wrong with this world? Stupidity…….

  13. Tina • January 25, 2008 @ 8:31 AM

    Common people, sure there is such a thing as “Stupidity”, however; if some of you were placed in the same situation, you may have “paniced” as well, perhaps been somewhat “confused” & “disoriented”…no one really knows what they would do in any given situation unless they are actually living it!!!! Give them some slack!!!

    Stumbling across a DEAD body can MESS UP some people…you all on the other hand may be of a STRONGER MIND!

    Tina, give them some slack? A four year old knows 911 in an emergency!! Why do people make excuses for these idiots?

  16. Sandy • January 25, 2008 @ 9:02 AM

    I don’t think that you’re all really reading this piece before posting your comments … the article said that he was unconcious. The Massesuse probably didn’t know the extent of the problem when she found him but she knew that he is an important person and that there would be lots of publicity ad papparazzi when the word got out (which it would immediately when she called 911). This masseuse obviously lives in the world where these stars try to have a normal life – I think that she was calling Olsen first (not knowing where she was – come on, how could she know?!!) from Ledger’s cellphone to try to “contain” the situation. Olsen – who is very used to trying to contain things called her security people right away so that they could help – these would not be “security guards” the way that we think of them — they would be people that are used to dealing with situations, have access to medical resources and could get things done. They would be “Doers” – thats why she pays them. The masseuse obviously realized how serious the situation was the longer she waited with Ledger and then called 911. I think that she made all the right choices and was trying to think of the privacy of the big names that she was dealing with. You can’t judge these people by the realities of our own lives – they live in a different world where people like all of you criticize their every move. Give them some slack and open your minds to other ways of doing things. Really!

    Before we jump the fence, maybe we should go to the source of all this mess. Wasn’t he married to someone? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe he was severly depressed over the breakup of his relationship and decided that without her life wasn’t worth living. So he turns around, buys some anti-depressants from some junkie and decides to empty the whole bottle chased down with vodka. Maybe, just maybe if he and his partner could have talked things over and go to counselling and try to patch things up, he may not have resorted to drugs in the first place. Criticize me if you must, but at least think it over. Think EVERYTHING over.

  18. Tina • January 25, 2008 @ 9:10 AM

    Thank you Sandy!!! That was exactly what I was trying to say, without going into much length…but THANK YOU again for your EDUCATED insight! There truly is too few of people like you OUT THERE!!!

  19. crappy • January 25, 2008 @ 9:17 AM

    I’m just sad of the whole situation.I agree with Sandy that in that certain situation with whatever information they had at the time it wasn’t bad what they did. In a stressful situation you want to reach out to people you know who may have a clear head. This story is going to unfold until mid-February so hold harsh judgements until all the facts are known.

    It’s too bad about his daughter not getting to know her father. I hope the next Batman movie is able to put a small tribute to Heath even he though he didn’t die during filming. He’ll be remembered just like Brandon Lee and all the rest who die too soon.

  20. Arnold • January 25, 2008 @ 9:23 AM

    The issue isn’t calling Mary Kate. The issue is the first call should have been made to Ashley Olsen! Everybody knows that Ashley has her bronze badge in Life Guarding from the movie Going to visit Gramma.

    you don’t always think to call 911…i was in NYC on a class trip once and my friend just started to have a seizure in time square and i was so worried about her and in complete shock i never thought to call 911 (someone else did)and I know to call 911 in an emergency but its hard to be prepared for those type of situations so you cant say she was stupid for not calling 911 because i doubt you’ve been in that type of situation.

  22. Bonnie • January 25, 2008 @ 9:27 AM

    I think the main thing everyone should be looking at right now is the loss of Heath Ledger and what a great actor he was and what his family is going though. My heart goes out to his family, he really was a great actor.

  23. Yer Adumarse • January 25, 2008 @ 9:33 AM

    Yes, if YOU were in the shower and naked and happened to have a heart attack and your loved one found younear death, sure hoped they would run to the closet and get your nest dressed clothes, put them on you and make sure you looked spiffy for when they came to pickup your (of course) now dead self. Gimme a break with the “they just wanna live quiet lives and the masseuse didn’t know what to do-he’s an important person? crap? Dingbat Olsen twin(s) worthless as actresses, guess 911 is a tough call to make, “hmmm, he IS dying but you know, friends would wanna know when you takes your last breath so call ’em, call ’em ALL, do it NOW! Sad he died, even sadder that there really are this many stupid people in the world and even those who make the above comments. Do you fall down alot with that heavy melon on your necj-it’s full of boulders or something ‘cuz I sure as chit hope nobody ever has to count on you to dial 772, no wait, 346, hang on I’ll get it, okay, 112, ummmmm, geez, don’t rush me, this is hard you know-okay got it, call Pizza Hut, Paramedics will be starving and they’re important people too…..

  24. Christine • January 25, 2008 @ 9:48 AM

    I hope the masseuse is not going to be blamed for Heath’s death. Everybody is always looking to blame someone else when these tragedies happen.

    Heath is a celebrity and staff are always tentative to act where they are concerned for fear of being blamed of overreacting and causing publicity. Privacy is first and foremost with celebrities and I am sure that anyone who deals with them have been given the “drill”.

    Heath was probably already dead when she arrived. The housekeeper said that she thought she heard what sounded like snoring at 1 p.m. Who knows if she is telling the truth or is trying to prevent getting blamed for not responding also.

    Whatever caused his unfortunate death is to be blamed, not anyone else.

    Rest in Peace Heath.

  25. Brat • January 25, 2008 @ 9:49 AM

    I heard from TMZ that the masseuse actually knew Mary-Kate Olsen’s bodyguard, and that because he had emergency medical training she called him. But the bodyguard said the police were already on the scene when he arrived and that it looked like Heath had been dead for awhile.

  26. Tracy • January 25, 2008 @ 9:58 AM

    he was NOT married he and michelle never got married, and broke up in september 07.
    It is NOT Mary Kate’s fault that the masseuse showed poor judgement…actually no judgement.
    MK is NOT smiling in the photo above, “creepily” or otherwise. and who know how old that photo is?
    he WAS an excellent actor and from all the pics i have seen was a loving and doting father to Matilda.
    Everyone needs to stop speculating, and wait for the final reports before drawing to conclusions, because drawing to conclusions is like drawing your bathwater to soon..you end up with lukewarm results.

  27. Fern • January 25, 2008 @ 10:01 AM

    Why don’t we just let this guy rest in peace for god’s sake! Instead of getting all worked up about it and just remember he was a good actor and now he’s in a better place! jeez

    Ring Ring!! Umm Yellllow, Ash? Yeah, HI Kately Mary? No, how many times I had to tell you, Mary, MARY-KATE, Sheesh, think you’d know your sis! Ashley? Yes Kately. ASHLEY! What? Okay like you know we share a brain and like Heath is my next door neighbour and I’ve been like, his girl-friend you know? Ashley: what, so was I, how come we didn’t know? Okay Ash, getting back to Heath, he’s like, um, maybe not alive because his fitness trainer, ahh, his friend that woman who comes over to give him back rubs, she called and said he’s like, not alive or something. Kately, what should we do? Shouldn’t we like call our agents or something, maybe this could be a movie? Listen Ash, think we should just wait and see how it plays out, like really there are others in Hollywood we’ve haven’t been with yet, maybe Jack Nicholson’s still kicking, he might be good for awhile and I heard he’s pretty smart, hang on Ashley, I’ll call him and ask what he’d do if he ws dying. Okay Mary, let me know, ‘m getting my hair done and I wanna look good for the photogs. K’ bye bye-Kisses….

  29. Margaret • January 25, 2008 @ 10:07 AM

    I am sorry that such a fine actor is no longer able to make movies, but more importantly that a caring, compassionate human being is no longer with us. I hope that the inquest into this tragic death looks into the time delay of paramedics not being on the scene as soon as possible. 911 should always be the first number called, then the publisit to control the media spin. Heath might have made it if 911 got there first thing. All celebrities want a private live but I would think not at the cost of their lives.

  30. Gingy • January 25, 2008 @ 10:07 AM

    Personally I think that you are all getting way too carried away with the whole thing. None of you know the exact story because none of the “NEWS” stations know exactly what happened so to put blame on anyone is not fair. Who cares if the masseuse called one of the Olsen’s first she could have been thinking anything. Not to mention that the above story said Wolozin used “the speed dial” on Ledger’s phone. Maybe she hit number 1 and send hoping that it would be someone important that may know if Ledger had any other problems that ie.. epilepsy, seizures, a stroke, anything…nobody knows what that woman was thinking so nobody can make a judgement on her actions. Especially if you have never been put in a situation like that. All in all, many actors die from all sorts of reasons and loads of people try to put the blame on someone so they feel better. I think that everyone should stop making judgements. The general public will NEVER know the exact happenings before and during Ledger’s death so we should all treat it with respect and give our condolence for his family and friends. None of us new him personally so we should just take it as another good actor falling out of Hollywood. Once again, my condolence to his family and friends.

  31. annomyous • January 25, 2008 @ 10:16 AM

    i think people should leave celebreties alone. they live a stressful life from day to day. especially with all the media. how would u like to have the media bothering u each day. it must be a stressful life. everyone did the best they could i feel in this handling this.

  32. Christina • January 25, 2008 @ 10:22 AM

    All these post are very interesting, and I think it’s great people are speaking their minds.
    My opinion is to wait on forming an opinion on all involved until real facts come out. It’s hard to rely on the media when for example, one source says he was near death when found and another source said he was dead for a while.
    No one knows for sure because none of us were there.
    For now I offer condolence to his family.

  33. Respect • January 25, 2008 @ 10:42 AM

    Hey, check it out, upscale apt. will be vacant now and you know how hard it is to find a place there, don’t you?

    I feel bad for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. They haven’t done anything since Full House and now they have to find another Hollywood actor to date. Isn’t this like the worst thing ever, they must have had like 10 boyfriends already this year!

    Wah, Heath’s dead, so what, life goes on, he doesn’t need privacy anymore, he’s gone. get over it and move on.

    Remember, it’s not really a lie unless you believe it-G. Costanza

  38. Can O Sardines • January 25, 2008 @ 11:09 AM

    Personally, I could care less about the guy but it is funny where all those above who didn’t know him are crying about it, using his first name and his daughter’s like they knew him or something. Even funnier are the comments above that laugh about all this mess, hilarious. Get real, people die everyday, do some of you cry and post about them too, like you knew them pesonally or something? Terrible people, worse than all this nauseating story after story on tv and in the news. How comes so many jump on the Poor Poor Guy wagon?

    I only found this because Tribute sends emails and I was looking over the movie listings. Nope, saw it, nope, lousy, nope boring movies, nope, Batman, hey, he’s dead, could be a good movie now! The Joker-ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha -should I make a song, heath’s dead and we all cry cuz we knew him so well, sad sad sad sad, not him and the Olsens, you peole who make it seem like you were there and it affects your life so much, that’s sad. Respect from you if you’re not such hypocrites, usually it’s Mr. ledger seeing as how you didn’t know him to begin with, tat’s respect. The daughter, you don’t know her either so don’t start with the poor poor child, she’ll be alone all her life trash talking!

  39. Roselee • January 25, 2008 @ 11:23 AM

    Why in the heck would she call her? and how did her security get there so quickly? and why was her security in New York and not in California with her?

  40. DEBORAH DETLOR • January 25, 2008 @ 11:43 AM

    i’m not here to put blame, only to say how i feel.heath was a great actor and person. he loved his daughter matilda very much,so i don’t think he would have done anything so stupid as to overdose on pills.i was very heart broken when i heard the news.iv’e kept all the newspaper clippings,to help me realize that one of my favorite actors was taken away too soon and so young.we’ll miss him very much 🙁 and my heart goes out to all of his family,especially matilda.R.I.P MY FRIEND!As to Can o Sardines, grow up. sure we never knew him personaly, but he was a great actor and he brought comfort into our homes. so just shut the hell up and let us mourn the way we want.LMAS TO YOU!

  41. Laura • January 25, 2008 @ 1:02 PM

    Ok…first things first….isnt there one person who thinks that maybe just maybe it was an accident. The prescription in his apartment was due to his case of pneuomonia…and the night before, he had been out celebrating Batman, and probably took his pills like he was supposed to but unfortunately he had been drinking and his judgement wasnt what it would have been had he been sober, and that he did not realize the adverse effects that would occur. This is an unfortunate turn of events and probably deprived the world of a great actor, as well as a wonderful person. The shock that has gone through the celebrity world and the agony that the people in his life are now going through should show people that it was a horrible tragedy. Instead of trying to fabricate what may or may not have happened people should be giving their condolences to his family and friends and his little girl who now has to live without a father.

  42. Joel • January 25, 2008 @ 1:03 PM

    SO I get to “Speak my mind?”
    This is what I do not get, countless people die each and every day from drug overdose whether it be prescription or illegal. None of them make headlines, hell, if they even make it into the obituaries its a lot. As soon as someone famous dies, so many people start crying and mourning them. When I die one day only my family and friends will grieve, no one famous would give a flying f*ck that I died, they wouldn’t even know it happened. I just plainly and simply don’t get it at all. Just cause they are famous people start sending money and gifts and flowers to their families, but when my grandfather died, a man that was in both world wars and received countless medals, gets nothing, absolutely nothing. I am not saying that my grandfather is the only person like that, I know there are hundreds more, what did they get, nothing at all when they died. Its the same with any “star” for instance, Martha Stuart, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, why the hell do they all get special treatment in every way shape and form. No one can answer that and know that they are right, the truth is, it is ONLY because they are famous. I personally thing its a bunch of BS. These people, they are just people like me and you, no different, so why does everyone make such a big deal about them.

  43. ET • January 25, 2008 @ 1:21 PM

    I heard the masseuse called the Olsen twin because her bodyguards were in the building and have medical training. The masseuse thought the bodyguards could get there quicker than 911. When they didn’t come fast she called back to let her know she was calling 911.

    I think youre all retarded — its not important. Britneys off her tree, Amy Winehouse is a junkie, Owen Wilson is obviously unappreciative for everything he has, and heath ledger is no more… one thing in common for all… its not important to the development of our species… completely irrelevant to all our lives and on the whole, doesnt really matter… whether or not she dialed 911 or full house girl, its not important. Thank god they finished the batman movie in time!! Phew

  47. Jo • January 25, 2008 @ 2:23 PM

    We should not be ones to judge the masseuse, the article said he was unconscious. A person goes into shock when something like that happens. Like a previous entry on here-the offer to send guards,they are like cops/paramedics and used to dealing with high stress situations. Her calling Mary Olsen obviously it was a speed dial call and in a panic it is understandable -call the first number on speed dial. Nobody knows how they are going to react until they are in a similar situation. I have been in an armed robbery, and believe me it is hard to describe what you go through when you are in shock.
    The bottom line is, a young person lost his life, no matter who he was – his family and friends and fans have lost him. It is a loss of life

    911 is for emergency he was already dead there is nothing wrong in this picture she wanted to alert her before the police if she found him lying there unconcious then you call the police first, Its the same as notifying NOK before identifying a person to the press, and that’s exactly what happened his relatives found out by the media trust me i have to deal with these kind os situation a lot and it’s hard to think the right thing at that split second.

  53. Poppa John • January 25, 2008 @ 6:11 PM

    Yeah, I guess the masseuse is just guilty of calling the wrong Olsen Twin. Sometimes life is just like that. Pity…. Perhaps she should have called Ashley, who in turn would have called Uncle Joey and Uncle Jessie, who would have called Danny Tanner first, then they would have come up with a jingle that would save the day and be fitting of the arrival of paramedics, making everyone feel like they’ve learned something(hopefully they have)and everything would turn out fine. Come on!!! Haven’t you seen the show?? They’ll know better next time!!

    Joel, these regular people don’t make the headlines when they die because they are just ordinary regular people! If they were well recognized celebrities, they WOULD make the headlines, like Heath did. Come on now, clue in. As far as sending money, gifts & flowers to his family, I don’t think many of us will be doing that, but we do feel for the family. Do you know what “feeling” is?
    Maureen, how do you know he was already dead? Were you there? Did the housekeeper say he was already dead? No. She should have called 911 first and foremost, no matter how shocked she was, because maybe, just possibly, they may have been able to save him. I’ve been in stressful situations before, the thing is, when you grow up, you have to learn how to keep your head and do the right thing. How old was this housekeeper anyway, 12?

  57. Sad Barflies • January 25, 2008 @ 11:16 PM

    I know exactly what happened! The guy died, he’s dead, he’s no more, he’s done, guess people can move on and wait for the next one huh? I’m an optimist, I’m sure someone else will die soon enough, could be a neighbour, family member, or, Heaven Forbid!!! Maybe someone in Hollywood. Just too bad that most of the above sucks will be on places like this to yammer-on about, things like: you knew him? NO, you didn’t, you knew his act and what you were privy to because of the media. You think you know how he died or are now speculating about it? NO, you just have to understand that there are always results forthcoming from the coroner and the autopsy and maybe you should just wait and see like many of other millions of people out there. Diference with them, they aren’t here trying to portray themselves as “friends of Heath”

    I’d bet with some of the idiotic opinions of some of the above and how some of you portray yourself as one who knew him and are now calling these people by first names, you’d also be the kind who’d make sure you were standing right alongside the emergency teamand stretcher while the cameras were flashing, you’d be on your cellphones calling all your contacts on your Blackberry. Could just see it now, you’d have tears streaming down your faces “Heath’s dead, it’s shocking, boo-hoo, hang-on, gota check my make-up, don’t want to look too bad for the cameras.”

    Sometimes those who imply they knew these people and use terms like “R.I.P my friend” uh, his true friends would have more class than to post such things on this type of blog or are you this dim to not understand that. Yes, he’s in a far far better place, of course anywhere that doesn’t include hypocrite barflies that want attention like you are looking for-the above who love to make it seem all so personal like.

    Sell your worldy possessions and make sure you donate to worthy charities so you can then go off and live on a mountain top or with the Swamis somewhere.

    He wasn’t your friend and he’s probably in hell (hopefully where I’m going to-hear it’s warm there, always!) so don’t make it seem like you were so special to him either, morons!

    To Anonymous: you’re here blathering about yourself, the times you’ve been in stressful sitautions? Must be like now or something, gotta kleenex there right beside you, bunched up ‘cuz you are cryin’? poor Heath, we hardly knew ya! You’re worried about spell check iz ya? Must bother you that people make a few erros, even intentional ones at thattt (did you catch it moron, have you notcied all the sdlang and other mistakes here too)?

    Does it hurt your brain to read such obvvveous misstakes tat peoplees right?

    True anal-retentive or personaility disorder when you come here to make such statements or have opinions about total strangers. Worse yet, you come here to at first discuss another dead actor but somehow manage to get “something of your own life’s situation in there didja?”

    People like you are scary, you actually believe some of your own trash, NOW that’s SCARY butt feel free to korrect all mi spellnk errrs, I knows you hates it when people don’t conform to a certain way you think is the correct way to practice it in their day-to-day life.

    You’ve got one of those know-it-all personalities too dontcha’……bet your friends are secretly discussing slipping you something in your drink so they can talk about you after you’re “gone”-or have they already left because you drove them nuts by correcting them far too often “is it potat-o or is it po-tato”

    I just have a few words.
    They found a dead body, calling 911 would not have mattered.
    He was in Mary Kate’s apartment, hmmm, let’s see, why not call the owner of the apartment to let them know they have a dead guy on their bed?
    I saw the 2 people in question on TMZ, they looked scared to death (no pun intended).
    Everyone is like “How come this, and how come that”, next time you show up for work and find a dead guy, make sure you remember the things you posted here.

  61. Jeff Stackhouse • January 26, 2008 @ 4:57 AM

    Holy h*ll, God almighty.

    You guys don’t know jack sh*t about what happened with Heath Ledger and probably never will!This whole incident with Heath is going to be so sensationalized that it’s going to have a million different stories, not one of them will be true.

    Sure the book will come out, then the t.v. movie, and we will all watch and cry and pretend he was our favorite actor.

    It’s just amazing to see millions of sad and crying Heath fans come out of the woodwork overnight. I am sure most of them had to look up his name on Google, and then download his films to try to see what he was all about before posting here.

    Also saying things anonymously is really lame. It means you don’t stand up for what you believe in.

    As a movie fan, I thought Heath was a good actor, I think he was probably cool , as I think most people are, and I have been eagerly awaiting the new Batman, but if I asked someone before the his death if my neighbors , my Mom or Granny knew of “Heath Ledger” the answer would have been “WHO?”, now, ALLLLLLLL of them know about his relationship with Michelle, they are on a first name basis with his Daughter Matilda, and everyone is holding candle light vigils…they don’t even do this for the people they DO know.

    It’s all a bit too crazy for me to talk about but it’s selling magazines and more people are tuning into ET because of it. The entertainment industry loves deaths because Death sells probably as much as sex.

    I am a person, so I do feel it’s sad, but it’s sad about the guy down the street that murdered his daughter too, but no one cares because the girl was not famous.

    We gotta get over fame, it’s something that isn’t even existent.We make people famous in our minds by believing what other people want us to believe. Heath was a person. It’s very sad for any person to die so young, and to his family and freinds and people that actually knew Heath it’s a huge loss for you all, I think people are not truly thinking of your son as a real person. I know he was real, and was not just famous or just an actor.

    No one on these boards knew your son, and they are all talking about what Mary Kate or Ashley (the Olsen Twins) had to to with this, and I should really apologize on behalf off all humans because “we” with the exception of some people who are realistic, all have tricked ourself with the media into believing we know Heath, and we don’t. Sure we thought he was cool, but he was more then that I am sure, and I hope the media and stalkerazzi leave you alone so you can grieve in peace.

    At the most all we have lost is another actor. You have lost your son, and there is no replacing a son, a father, and a true friend.

    What you talkn bout Jeff Stackhouse?

  63. Not Jeff • January 26, 2008 @ 9:47 AM

    Hey, now I know Jeff and if he dies, I’ll come here to offer my condolences to his family. Jeff might not attract much speculation or rumours but then again, who the heck cares about duh, Ledger either? Hi Jeff! Sign me, Not Jeff LOL. The rest of you weasels who portray yourself as Friends of Heath or something how come you didn’t get a Heath Ledger Fan Club Going or something? I for one am glad I met Jeff, even happier I didn’t know Heath and his movies realy did stink. Bet we find that he was a doper like many others who died and didn’t cover their tracks while they were still here consuming oxygen…..LOL

    Nice talkin with ya Jeff, or Mr. Stackhouse. Ciao

  64. Fan of Heath • January 26, 2008 @ 8:55 PM

    SpotMatrix, very well said. He was famous and that’s why everyone is talking about his death. Personally I liked most of his movies, and thought he was a very talented actor. I was sad when I heard of his death, the same way I’m sad whenever I hear of the death of one of our soldiers in Afghanastan. It wasn’t someone I knew personally, but I knew OF them, so I feel for them and their families.

  65. Still Anonymous, why not? • January 26, 2008 @ 9:06 PM

    To the idiot who posted the Jan 25 11?27 pm “opinion”, man, what is WRONG with you? I think you’d better go see a doctor, and quick. I wasn’t blathering on about my stressful situations, I just said I have been in stressful situations, not unlike anybody else. I just said that when one becomes an adult (something you obviously have not achieved yet) that person has to learn how to keep their head about them, has to be able to handle bad situations. So no, I didn’t “manage to get something of my own lifes situations” in there, idiot. And no, I do not have a kleenex bunched up nearby, why would I? I do have a lot of friends though, intelligent friends. You are not one of them, of course. You are too much of an idiot. You talk about me having a personality disorder? I think you’d better re-read your own post.
    And do you think “anonymous” is any worse of a handle than “poppa john”, “char”, or “wtf”? What difference does the name make, even the ones that are actual names are probably fake anyway, so who really cares? Char, chill girl, relax. It’s just a post!

  66. SpotMatrix • January 27, 2008 @ 12:02 PM

    The great thing about posts is that you can say your opinion. The bad thing about posts is that you can say whatever you like with no regard for other peoples opinion. We all have an opinion so lets accept that everyone sees things differently based on the quality and quantity of information they have and and their personal attitude toward the subject mater. Why can’t we just leave it at that without attacking each other. There will always be people who see things as it appears and those who try and read between the lines. It’s still all assumption… no? My guess is most people are posting here because they generally enjoyed his films. That’s why I did. If you didn’t then why bother posting.

  67. Anonymous • January 27, 2008 @ 3:13 PM

    I finally agree with you, SpotMatrix. Very well said, indeed. Lets all grow up, live and let live. Not bash each other over differences of opinion. Hey, here’s an idea, why don’t we post opinions on the topic at hand, instead of opinions on each other? That’s so crazy, it just might work!

  69. Me • January 27, 2008 @ 9:18 PM

    It always seems so stupid when something like this happens and in “Hollywood” it is 10 times stupider! People do the dumbest things and it just is so sad that it takes something as sad as this to make people realize to wake the f**K up! We should all just let time figure out what happened and let Heath rest in peace and the less speculation on our part, the better, for the family is who deserves our respect right now.

  70. Nancy • January 28, 2008 @ 10:28 AM

    First of all, to Nancy on Jan 25…..you need a new name, because I am Nancy…the queen!!!

    Maureen: WTF???????? I have absolutely NEVER, NEVER, NEVER heard of someone calling the POLICE when finding someone dead or unconcious!! DUH! “Emergency numbers are for emergencies”……I think being dead or unconcious could possibly be considered an EMERGENCY wouldn’t you say??

    Jeff Stackhouse: You’re whack, man!!! First of all, you talk about other commenters using the first names of celebrities and their families……and you dropped those first names more than anyone else on here! Secondly, who the f*ck are you talking to? Mr. Ledger’s family? Do you really think that in their time of mourning, or any other time, that his family is on Tribute.ca reading all these comments???

  71. Nancy • January 28, 2008 @ 10:31 AM

    Oh, and what you talkin’ bout Arnold? You make me laugh man! Not good for my stitches!!!!!

    What the hell is “word up” supposed to mean, anyway? I’ve never understood that one.

  73. Aussie • January 29, 2008 @ 5:52 PM

    Let me ask you, with the troll doll, Olsen that is, assuming overdose do you think the “security” team were sent to the apartment to remove any drugs or drug paraphanalia that she assumed may have been present?

    Why did the masseuse, when what should have been obvious from the very beginning, Ledger was in dire need of medical assistance, after not one or two, but three previous telephone calls to the troll, call her a fourth and final time, the only purpose of which was to advise that she WAS calling an ambulance?

    Well the only reason you would have to call specifically to notify someone that you WERE in fact going to call 911 is if that same person when initilly asked “what should I do, should I call 911” had previously said “No!, Don’t I’ll send over some people.”

    A young man lay dying but all Olsen can think about is avoiding bad press. What a great human being. Someone give that bitch a medal.

    I just hope for her sake that Ledger had in some way contributed to his own death ie overdose, and did not die of a heart attack or other natural cause.

  74. Heath The "Snow" Man • February 2, 2008 @ 7:27 AM

    another loser actor with too much money to burn-coke-snorting-pot-smoking-dumba$$ dope fiend Celeb(?). Ledger should’ve been cast in BLOW instead of Depp, Heath would’ve been playing the part, FOR REAL ha-ha-ha-SNORT, SNIFF, WHEW-whutta RUSH! I’m Outta Here NOW! signed, Has-Been Heath

  75. Not Jeff • February 2, 2008 @ 7:38 AM

    Hey again. This is Not jeff from above. What did I say on Jan. 25, I said “I bet we find out he was yet another DOPER” and I guess I would have won my bet! I feel bad now, not for the Ledger family who I’m sure must have known he was a coke freak or multiple-dope freak but I do feel sorry for his supplier. In this day and age of competitive business, now the supplier will have to find another customer to make up for the huge loss now that dopehead Ledger is done. Oh well, I’m sure the supplier will rebound from this, surely there are alot of other celebrities who will meet their demise like Ledger soon enough anyway. Rest well, Mr. Supplier, hope biz picks up for you and sorry to see your cash cow die off but things will pick up soon enough.

    Sniff…..Sniff…..SNIFFFFFFFFFF…What’s that, someone sad over Ledger’s death???? No…..that was what Heath sounded like when he took that last big snort and went off to that great snowcloud in the sky LOL

    Good Day-Not Jeff.

  76. Velvet • February 4, 2008 @ 8:23 PM

    To Poppa John, Can O Sardines, Joel and SpotMatrix: thank you for your posts because you couldn’t have said it better.

    I started watching Heath’s career when I saw his first film “10 Things I Hate About You”. And since then have seen about 90% of his films. A very good actor who had the potential to be a great actor. I’ve never met him or his family. May their grief not be unbearable.

    No matter how much money a Hollywood actor makes, for me, the price is just too high and if you’re not grounded, you can quickly spiral downward.

    Death is always a wake up call to live each day to the fullest and take absolutely nothing and nobody close to you for granted. Because in a moment, you or they could be gone. Peace!

  77. ginny • February 11, 2008 @ 3:24 PM

    OMG . . . some of you are just the most pathetic, judgemental people I’ve ever encountered in my life. First of all, your assumptions that he was a cocaine addict . . . like you knew him. Innocent until proven guilty sure seems to have gone right out the window in this country. You all automatically assume it was illegal drugs. News flash, people. 100’s of people die each and every day due to drug interaction that is purely accidental. But, of course, he was an actor, so that couldn’t be the cause here. How small minded of you.

    And second. Why are you all crapping on Mary Kate Olsen? She just lost a very close friend, and all you can do is dump on her. The girl has had struggles in her life, just like all of us. Anorexia is a terrible disease to fight, as is any eating disorder. Being extremely slim does not make you a crack whore. And being rich does not make you immune to hardships. You go so far as to pick on what she’s wearing, You all need to find positive ways to expel the chip you obviously have been carrying around on your shoulders since childhood.

    We have lost a wonderfully gifted actor, and his daughter will grow up never truly knowing how wonderful her father was. That is the real issue here. My thoughts and prayers to the Ledger Family. Please disregard what most of these idiots had to say about your son. You knew him best,and I hope that your wonderful memories of him will help you through this tragic time.

  78. chelsey • June 16, 2008 @ 12:17 AM

    i think that all of you people beating her up like that is wrong. yes if the lady didnt call 911 first it was not the sharpest move but you do not have to blame mary kate. it must have been very sad and depressing to have the beloved actor/boyfriend die and you should not give her a hard time. what if she was reading this?you guys should be ashamed we should show sympathy and love to other humans instead of being nasty and hateful i totally agree with ginny. i hope you all have a new paradigm on this situation.
