‘Dallas’ Star Larry Hagman (September 21, 1931 – November 23, 2012) Dead at 81

Larry Hagman, best known for his work as Tony Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie and J.R. Ewing on Dallas (which was just brought back by TNT in June of this year), passed away at a Texas hospital surrounded by family and friends yesterday after a 13-month battle with throat cancer.

“Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew,” Hagman’s television wife Linda Gray, who convinced him to eat vegan as a health precaution, told People. “He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the fullest.”

Warner Brothers released their own statement explaining that the “sad news will be incorporated into the storyline” as Dallas progresses.

The loveliness of Dirk Nowitzki seems somehow sadly gay/The glory that was Jason Kidd is of another day/I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Dallas/I’m going home to my city in the grey.

OK, that song might be a little altered, and he really isn’t going back to L.A. yet.

Khloe And Lamar Are Going To The Longhorn State

It’s official, Lamar Odom has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks after his original trade to the Hornets with Pau Gasol (to Houston) for Chris Paul was rejected by NBA commissioner David Stern. The trade came at Odom’s request.

What this means for non-avid sports fans is a move for Khloe Kardashian, and a new location for one of four Kardashian-related reality shows, Khloe & Lamar. Who knows where the fate of Khloe & Kourtney Take Miami lies.

Originally Khloe Tweeted“I would go anywhere with my hubby,” and “I can survive anywhere, people are acting crazy! LOL New Orleans is a great place. As long as I’m with Lam, I’m good.” Her latest words of Twitter art are made of the same peppy material…
