Ed McMahon in ICU -- Pneumonia, Cancer

2/27/2009 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ed mcmahon: exclusiveUPDATE: We've just learned Ed is in the ICU and his condition is "extremely serious." As one person close to him put it -- "It's not great, to say the least."

We're told Ed McMahon has been hospitalized for nearly a month with pneumonia, bone cancer and other medical problems.

McMahon's condition is "serious" which is pretty obvious given his age -- 85 -- and the fact he has pneumonia.

We contacted Ed's rep, Howard Bragman, who confirmed the hospitalization and added, "He's not at Cedars-Sinai" -- a dig on the hospital Ed is suing for alleged malpractice and elder abuse.

Angels in waiting offered Octumom a house and around the clock care. Octumom turned it down. AIW said they felt she was instead waiting for a reality TV show. AIW expressed concern over the health of the babies being exposed to people and germs. Octumom called AIW back and said she changed her mind and will take the offer. Problem is the offer expired at midnight last night just as they had always warned that it would.

BOYEE, I HAVE TO SAY, SOME OF THE THINGS YOU PEOPLES SAY AT A TIME WHEN IT SHOULD NOT BE SAID. WHY NOT BE SMART SOMETIME AND JUST GO TO THE JOKES SITE, YOU MIGHT JUST FIND YOUR PARTY OVER THERE. ANYWAY GOOD-LUCK ED.

Ed was a fairly decent guy for a long time--UNTIL he got mixed up with younger women who SEDUCED him for his MONEY-- He got believe himself to be a STUD in his old age--POOR GUY-- He remindes me of Larry King "DEAD" of CNN fame-- This Creep is worse than ED- Larry has been married 7 or 8 times and spends every thing he make on VIAGRA, CIALIS, and Lavitra- What a decent guy he IS???????

I can't believe some of your horrible comments in this time of sadness. I only hope that those of you without a heart or soul suffer at some time in your life the way his family is doing so now.
