22. I'm totally a 41 year old woman

You messed around with Matt Dillon, Ice T, and Judd Nelson . . .

You settled down with Will Smith, Emilio Estevez and Andrew McCarthy.

I'm gonna drop the mic now!

9. Very sad news about a wonderful actor

 

I want to mention that he was also in a sitcom called Buffalo Bill with Dabney Coleman which did not last long but which was hilarious.
Also he was amazing on stage in Sizwe Banzi Is Dead by Athol Fugard.
He will be missed by many.

13. I was shocked too. I thought he was younger.

Loved him on Designing Women. He and Alice Ghostley (Bernice) gave me many a good laugh.

16. Odd, I was just wondering about him

the other day. I never saw him again after Designing Women but I so loved what he brought to that character.

Very sad.

RIP Meshach. I hope your journey is now restful and pain free.

20. OMG! I was just watching an "DW" marathon Friday!

Maybe I shouldn't watch these things. If we loose Annie Potts, I'll curl up in a corner and cry.
