I'd rather hear about Billy Mays then MJ. Enough with the drug addict white woman already. At least Billy Mays offered us great products at a reasonable cost.

He was just a loud pitchman until I started watching his show. Now, not only do I find myself liking him tremendously, but I miss him very much. R.I.P.

And NOBODY has ever heard of YOU honey. You can buy a clue now--the guy was the most successful TV pitchman ever and an interesting character on his TV show. He didn't sleep with young boys, shoot drugs, or act like a fruit.

Wow, you've obtained video from the show Pitchmen that aired months ago. What a scoop TMZ!

What the heck did they do, take him out on the Gasparilla pirate ship out on Tampa Bay? Good thing Billy didn't blow-up the boat lighting the cannons off because they need that ship every year to lead the flotilla.
