Star Whackers

               Actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago for causing more than $5,000 worth of damage at a residence in Santa Barbara, California. But the story doesn’t end there. The couple is asking for protection from a shadowy group of people Randy Quaid says has killed eight of his close friends. This sounds pretty crazy, but is there any fact to it?
                Among this list of “celebrities killed by the Star Whackers” are Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Chris Penn, David Carradine, and Natasha Richardson. Now, I will admit that there has been some talk of foul play for all of these stars, most notably Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson. And in the case of Michael Jackson, there have been rumors of a conspiracy too; Dr. Conrad Murray is said to have had among his patients “several unidentified officials in Vegas government”. Other than foul play rumors and being Quaid’s costars I can really find no connection between any of them.

                So is this true? Well, rumors of Hollywood killing off their own stars (as some reports claim Quaid says about the identities of the Star Whackers) date pretty far back: Albert Dekker, Nick Adams, Elizabeth Short, even Bob Crane.  So this is no new claim. If you ask me, the Quaids just want attention. What better way to jump-start a dead acting career than to ransack a house, flee to Canada, then claim you are being pursued by Star killers?           

P.S. And is Jackson even considered a Hollywood star?

  1. Ooh I love a good conspiracy! I think it is quite possible. Randy Quaid? I don't think so. He was probably using it as an excuse. But I wouldn't doubt that he was right about assassins specifically for celebrities. As for Michael Jackson not being a Hollywood Star...he does have a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. If that doesn't make you a Hollywood Star I don't really know what does.

  2. What I meant about MJ is that he wasn't really "Hollywood". Hollywood is termed usually for "movie stars", which Michael was not. Most of the people Randy Quaid claims were murdered were his costars, there is no way he costarred with MJ.
