Let him go, he wanted to go, and let him rest in peace.
And Dr Drew, you do not know what its like to live in constant bone pain, every second of every minute of everyday of every hour. So zip it.
I on the other hand do know what its like.
Its my body and my choice.

Hello Fans of Grease, Taxi & much more... the passing of Actor & Gentleman, Jeff Conaway will pause us today... but tomorrow, we will remember & cherish him always! Jeff was a recent friend & actor attached to my current project, Human Factor. TMZ contacted my co-Partner, Eric Goren. We feel humble and saddened with his loss. Jeff was just recently attached. I talked with him last week & sent out a script to a friend's house for his viewing. He will be remembered at the end of our Film! R.I.P, Jeff... we love you!

Say what you will about his religion and reported sexuality, John Travolta is always very classy and respectful. Nice that he could release a nice statement on his old co-star in spite of Jeff's problems with drugs.

I am glad he is at peace now. He really tried to come out of the addictions, and my prayers go to his family.
