    You agree but you still continue to report on every new detail?

  2. Paula says – reply to this


    She is soo right!!!! Leave him rest in peace Perez!!

  3. Emma says – reply to this


    there is absolutely no respect for his family or for the very short life that he lived! During a time of death and greivence we need to embrace him in all positive ways..we dont need to talk about the negative things that MIGHT have surrounded him and with the fucking paparazzi the way they are i cant imagine living my life in any normal sane way with those people around me 24/7..and especially in michelle williams case a time of greivence and shock and anything else she might be feeling!

  4. erin says – reply to this


    You posted this after your non stop 'coverage' of Heath's death. Just above posting rumors of him dating MK. Why even bother when your who Star is talking about, Perez. Just stick to posting what we already read in the NY Post 3 hours ago.

  5. PEREZ, YOU FAT HYPOCRITE says – reply to this




  6. Star says – reply to this


    wow she finally said something good.

  7. Dr Emma French says – reply to this


    I have never posted on this site before even though I read it all the time. But her comments are absolutely appropriate, moving and well-judged and I am so pleased that Perez posted them and depicted them in that light. I have a two year old daughter and…anyway. God bless Michelle and Matilda during this awfulness.

  8. Melanie says – reply to this


    Absolutely agree! Have a little empathy for his family and especially for Michelle Williams and their daughter. I have a two year old daughter and cannot even imagine how I would tell her that her she will never see her father again.

    she has mudflaps for fucking hands!!!!!!!

  10. allyshep says – reply to this


    that was so powerful.
    i straight up agree. that's sick how fast his death was in the media.

  11. Brett says – reply to this


    You are a hypocrite Perez. Don't say that you agree with everything she says (including the ridiculous media reports on inuendo and hype) and then post endless 'up to the minute' updates based on rumor……wait until the true story comes out and then devote some of your, at least occasional, heart felt - spot on commentary you are so capable of.

    Re: Jonathan

    exactly Jonathan

  13. nycwoman says – reply to this


    All of a sudden perez, you respect someone's privacy?! kelly is right on. You are a fucking hypocrite.

  14. Shana says – reply to this


    I think Perez is a hypocrite too but its people like us who come to his site and post comments that keep him in business. Shame on us.

  15. Jane says – reply to this


    I dont always agree with you Perez - lets face it on occasion you're a dick but - here here.

  16. pardon? says – reply to this


    if you agree with what she's saying, then why have you been perpetuating all the rumours by posting them ALL on your site?

  17. Canadian Girl says – reply to this


    R.I.P. Heath
    God Bless Matilda

  18. Vanessa says – reply to this


    I agree :0(

  19. Catherine says – reply to this


    i'm so glad she wrote this piece.
    she's on point.

  20. Shay says – reply to this


    She did a good job of stating what everyone else needs to understand. The family does need their privacy and out of respect for him and his family I have no problem foregoing the ability to look at pictures of the services. His death was public enough. His burial, while we all loved him, should be attended by the people that knew him best. I just think about how I'd feel if it was me. x

  21. Christy says – reply to this


    I totally agree with Star. This so absurd. I'm sure if these stupid paparazzi people lost someone they loved they'd want peace and respect during their hard time so they should give it to his family and daughter. The sad thing is they hardly take pics of Michelle Williams but now that she lost someone she's loved now they want to hound her. Poor girl!!!! Everyone should stop all these rumors and let everyone remember him for what he loved to do, not who he was dating.

  22. Whatever says – reply to this


    Hey Perez, if you believe in everything that Star is saying, why do you continue to report every single detail about his death, fueling the fire.

    Yet you like to make yourself feel all nice and fuzzy inside by being a big man and not posting pictures of the corpse itself!

  23. April says – reply to this


    But isn't that exactly what she did for 9 years during the View's hot topics? Funny, now that she is not a part of mainstream media, she tells them to stop speculating….

  24. Mary says – reply to this


    I completely agree with her about all things said in the article! That being said.. Perez, how can you say you completely agree with what she has said while you've been speculating on his death just as everyone else? Just a thought…

  25. E says – reply to this


    Finally I agree with her.

  26. Josh Morphis says – reply to this



    Obviously you DON'T agree with everything she says, because you've been whoremongering Heath Ledger's death into the ground. Within hours of his death, one entire page of your site was plastered with updates and speculations as to whether or not his drug use played a part.

    Girl, you do what you do really well. Keep doing it, following your convictions, wherever they may stand. But don't be a hypocrite just because you read an editorial that kicked ass and you want to align yourself with it.

    Figure out where you stand and stick to it. But then again, if you did that, I don't think you would have the success you have had. You can't get to where you are without being a Yes-man.

  27. howarda555 says – reply to this


    you agree with this what a fuckin joke you are all this site does is guess at shit and act like you know its true ..who are you kidding.
    You shit on who you dont like and ass kiss everyone else you are gossip and nothing else stop trying to act like you have any integrity .

  28. Teresa says – reply to this


    I shall say im very proud of her, its refreshing to see that some ppl in the media actually take some time to think about what the families could be going thru…

  29. tERESA says – reply to this


    VERY classy…i must admit.

  30. MGS says – reply to this



  31. kylie says – reply to this


    I also agree with everything she says. Its sad that people would rather get a good story than leave the family alone. He was such a talented guy and hewas acumulating an incredible career in acting. It will be strange not having him in any movies after the dark knight.

  32. Daniella says – reply to this


    Yes, Star Jones put it perfectly.

  33. lksmama says – reply to this


    interesting Perez that you agree with everything she says when you have that MK blurb 2 posts down on your page. You are a hypocrite. YOU are one of the speculating vultures she is referring to - and your story 2 posts down about Mary Kate is just one of the numerous examples to prove this point over the last couple days. Don't pat yourself on the back too hard. You might slip and fall in your own self-congratulatory slime.

  34. Perezsucks says – reply to this



    You suck you fuckin hypocrite. You won't stalk a dead man but you torment mentally unstable Britney all the time. Why should people leave Heath alone when according to you it's okay to stalk everyone else all the time

    You are so full of shit dude - holier than thou . . .

  35. Jack says – reply to this


    *applauds Star Jones*

    Now if Perez agrees with every word she said then he would stop being a gossip piranha and apologize, because he reported several times yesterday about Heath's alledged ALLEDGED drug overdose.

    fucking hypocrite

  36. SandovalB says – reply to this


    While I must admit that I love coming to your site daily to read all of your criticisms and gossip on celebrities and people that you personally dislike, I must also admit that it is a damn shame to see that despite your claims to be honest and always speaking the truth; you are nothing but a hypocrite. You only speak of those whom you dislike and are of no convenience to you and your ‘purpose’, in reality you as many others that you mock will end up being a washed up has been. I cannot believe you have the nerve to agree with Star Jones whom you blatantly talk negatively about, especially when you have been one of the main people that have been doing every single thing that she is disagreeing with on a daily basis since Heath Ledger died. It is obvious to me why you are so hated by many; I cannot wait to see your reaction when you fall from that pedestal you have placed yourself on. It is because of people like you that the world is so dysfunctional. You are just as bad if not worse than those you talk about, I feel sorry for you and can only imagine all the things that were done to you in life to make you the disgusting and heartless individual that you are, just remember that karma is a bitch and money doesn’t buy happiness, which is evident by seeing what the money you have made off of talking trash about other has bought you!

  37. Aussie Rob says – reply to this


    Hey everyone lets just remember him for the right reasons he was a good bloke un like a lot of people in this world who deserve the bad words that have and will be said.

  38. Babyangel545 says – reply to this


    So right! She said it all… It also made me sick to my stomach when I was listening to the news (I must say I'm from Montreal, Canada) and I saw the bodybag with him on it. Media have much more respects for murderers… At least, they should have had more respect for him. I was shocked. For people that thinks it's normal, then we don't live in the same planet. Since when it's normal to harass people, even when they are dead ? Can you imagine if his daughter browse the net in like 10 or 12 years and see those captures ? How would she feel ? How would you feel if it was your father in this bag and you see it live on tv ? Ask this question to yourself and maybe you will get it right… There's no job that's enough paied to warrant this kind of arrasement….

    Lets face it.
    The world isn't going to change overnight, especially due to what Star wrote..
    therefore, the only possible reason she has for doing this is :
    1 - making herself look like a good person
    2- shamelessly joining in the media circus she claims to be against !!

  40. Kudos says – reply to this


    Sweet article! She was 100% right. Everyone needs to fuck off, period!

  41. Your TRUTH says – reply to this


    You agree, yet your posting all the shit about him and his family? how does that work… You are just as bad if not worse then all the people making up stories about him and his death. How does it feel to be the 3 most hated man in the us? They say they love you perez, but they dont even know you how can they love you? Its sad that you get so much happiness from exploiting human beings at there weakest. Have fun being hated… i hope with your 40 FAT and all alone it was all worth it.

  42. Kameron says – reply to this


    So very well written and I too agree with her. I also have a 2 year old daughter, and I cannot imagine having to explain what is going on with all the sudden media attention or worse yet, explaining that Daddy is gone to her forever. My heart truely breaks for his daughter. He was a great actor and apparently an even better father who's loss will be felt forever in little Matildas world.

  43. steve says – reply to this


    if you agree with everything she says in the article, why do you continue to perpetuate the negative speculation by posting all the trash and unfounded rumours around his alleged drug use? you are pathetic. what goes around comes around. god forbid you have your own untimely death ….imagine what would be said of you and the reasons for your death like :"gee…mario as gay and very promiscuous…he must have died from Aids" or "he used to party a lot and snort blow and shoot heroine with his other junkie hollywood friends….he must have od". think about it. unfortunately, i think your head is too far up your ass to get it.

  44. Kris says – reply to this


    Why don't we make such a big deal when a soldier dies? I understand that he was a famous actor, but the reality is that people die everyday, and they never get recognized the way he has. Either way, I fucking love Perez!!!

  45. missytwista says – reply to this


    QUE MAL! I swear to heysus…that every picture of star looks like her big ol' head has been pasted onto an anorexic model's body! Doing the Oprah/Ann Margaret Thing!

  46. about time says – reply to this


    AMEN TO HER EDITORIAL!! don't understand how morons could say such things to someone who is deceased. you wouldn't say such crude comments if one of your loved ones died now, would you? if you did, you're a shame.

  47. j-na says – reply to this


    I never thought I would say this but… well said Star, well said. R.I.P. Heath Ledger.

  48. heatherfeather says – reply to this

    Amen Sister!!!

  50. dw says – reply to this


    she gets on my nerves but is completely correct!!!!

  51. giggygirl says – reply to this


    I completely agree, so very well stated! I could not believe that one gossip site had a camera with a live feed waiting for the action in front of his building. It's just unbelievable … no privacy at such a devastating time in their lives.

  52. Emily [cunt-TASTIC] says – reply to this


    I feel so bad for his family and his kids.
    IT would be so hard on the mother to try and explain that to them
    I hope they get the privacy they need.
    But Star needs to realize
    rip Heath
    I'm reanting all your movies on netflix and having a movie day in your memory.
    rest in peace my nigga

  53. Lala says – reply to this


    Perez the sheer hyprocrisy is so nauseating. You are the first to jump over anything that comes out regarding his death. Don't you see that it's people like you that she is addressing. Instead you sit there in your high chair and say you agree with her? There is another gossip blogger that has not once wrote anything else about Heath since his death, understanding that yes we love the gossip but there also is line that needs to be drawn. Lainey Gossip understands this, and you should too Perez.

  54. downwithmuffins says – reply to this


    how can you agree with everything she said and simultaneously stand against it? how many heath ledger posts have you made over the last several days? just saying…

  55. Snatch Muffin says – reply to this


    First off.. In Perez's defense for all of those calling him a hypocrite for slandering Heath. Pay some fucking attention. Every article covering Heath over this website, have not been from Perez himself… they have been stories published by other websites. I would also like to give to thumbs up to Star Jones. I couldn't have said it better myself.

  56. jake in la says – reply to this


    You FUCKING HYPOCRITE! I know you're an attention-starved worthless retard. But for you to feign integrity and pledge agreement with someone asking the media to allow a family to grieve and quit perpetuating the rumor mongering is complete hypocrisy. Your entire pathetic existence is based off of rumor mongering and posting baseless claims. I've counted over 26 stories you've posted about the Heath Ledger tragedy and over half were stories speculating on what killed him and whether drugs were involved. Did you really think people wouldn't notice how retarded you are?

  57. ElenaBelle says – reply to this


    It's weird I've hated her with a passion for years,but she's actually really good on her show I've been telling people this,I always agree with her now,shes very smart on alot of things,dare I say it I almost like her now.

  58. SPICS ARE SHIT says – reply to this


    puerto ricans are the nastiest most vile creatures satan ever shitted out his ass.

  59. MoRo says – reply to this


    I can't stand Star Jones but she just won some cool points with me!!!

  60. Amanda says – reply to this


    Very nicely written! It's exactly what needs to be said! We need to let Heath rest in peace, and offer only support to his family - not gawk at them like circus performers. This was a real man with a real life, and we need to respect him and those that loved him.

  61. Jamaican Bitch says – reply to this


    Yes even the lice in my head thats not born yet Knows Star is a arrogant Bitch…But give CREDIT were its due.. (Moving right along)My COY boy Heath is gone,, but he came and made an impression on all that were bless to know him or know of him. ITS more than many of us ever do in a life time.

  62. LoL says – reply to this


    Re: Snatch Muffin – How about you paying a fucking tention?
    PEREZ WOULD ALSO NOT BE TAKING THE PICS OF HIS BODY BEING MOVED ETC. He would just be reposting it, as he does with everything.
    It is the paparazzi who do all the dirty work, not the blogs etc.
    Seriously oh my god, you are so wrong, so wrong.. I don't have the energy to try and get it through your obviously thick as cement skull.

  63. ridiculous says – reply to this


    Cool! haha
    How many times has Perez been called a hypocrite in the last 24 hours or so?
    Almost every single post here is calling him out.
    Thank god (most) people are seeing sense.
    The thing is, Perez will probably just delete it all and you'll all forget all about it and there will be no proof.
    Fact is, he showed the video of his body being moved. I watched it through a link on this website that Perez himself posted…so…
    Get and save SCREENSHOTS or a word file of the text while you can.

  64. mauibabe says – reply to this


    i totally agree!!!! the media & stupid papparazzi is out of control, they are morbid and act as if they have never experience the loss of a loved one. i now see why celebreties are sooo private, they have to be. just b/c they make movies, music and so forth and we pay a movie ticket to watch their movies or their concerts does not give us the right to stick our nosey asses in their personal lives, they entertain us enough on the big screen and whatever else they do should be their business……thanks to starr jones and what she wrote although i doubt the media will ease off..it's sad but its true….rip heath!

  65. RIP Heath says – reply to this


    Perez, thanks for this link, I agree with her too. But you are a hypocrite — and I am a hypocrite — for nodding along with her. We've all been wallowing in the very celebrity-watching she so convincingly criticises. The last few weeks of Britney-chasing has made me squirm with guilt over it, and now this… I think we're all (myself included) slightly sick for so hungrily devouring the misfortunes of these people — some of whom court the media, some of whom are genuinely talented actors/musicians/etc who happen to find that their careers turn them into celebrities. Either way, they're human, and there's something off about the way we wait for them to die/embarrass themselves/get fat/wee themselves/etc.

  66. Claudia says – reply to this


    Thanx for this words, she just write all the words on my mind.
    Congrats for the respect from this site, and thanx for the info updates. I'm in Spain, and we don't have so many information except for the internet.
    My heart is with the family and Michelle+Matilda.
    Heath Ledger will be forever in our hearts.

  67. noneya says – reply to this


    you agree with everything she says? you're the worst part of what she's talking about. you're the ones standing on the front steps waiting to snap the pictures while asking inappropriate questions to whoever you see. you're the ones she's ridiculing. and you agree with her. ha.

  68. bunnie says – reply to this


    just a comment about how babymomma will have to explain to the kidlet on the whole wheres daddy thing… just ask courtney love. shes already had to deal with death of baby daddy. frances bean seems to be ok despite her upbringing with a dead celeb dad.

  70. Sam says – reply to this


    What are you talking about? Your blog is exactely what she is talking about. One minute you say one thing and the next you say something different about this poor mans death. You agree with her but that doesn't stop you from doing exactely what she is talking about. You are a big, fat hypocrite. Of course, my comment won't show up. It would be like if I said something bad about that skank Paris Hilton. Those don't show up either.

    P……I really do agree with her…

  72. David - London says – reply to this


    Beautiful words from Star Jones.

  73. Icegirl says – reply to this


    I do agree with her. I also think that you Perez are one of the biggest hypocrits out there.

  74. Katyspice says – reply to this


    "We have to agree"? Perez you posted speculation after speculation about this tragedy…How about putting your money where your mouth is and following through!

  75. Phut says – reply to this


    YES indeed.Now STFU yourself Perez cashing in on it 3 pages a day.No respect man at all.

  76. devilgirl says – reply to this


    Star is right, and Perez, it shows class that you acknowledged that. She was correct in that Heath lived his life privately and owes us nothing but his performances that we paid money for. And we owe him and his family the privacy that he craved. RIP Heath.

  77. trisha says – reply to this


    thanks for posting that, perez

  78. Ant says – reply to this


    Star Jones looks like RuPaul….dressed as a secretary! Hypocrital skank…AMEN

    Could it be? Perez is finally growing up? Miracles never cease.

  80. Tinus says – reply to this


    with all do respect: i don't see the difference between Heath's death and the death of f.i. Anna Nicole Smith.

    Bit hypocrit, don't ya think?
    You live on filth, so why act like having a conscience this time?

  81. UrbanRube says – reply to this


    It's about time someone wrote a "have we no shame?" editorial. Kudos to Perez for making it available to a wider audience.

  82. Nat says – reply to this


    I have to agree with what Star Jones wrote in her article. We all like to know the gossip and what is going on but it was very sad to see the press taking pictures of his dead body being rolled out, regardless.

    Well Said! I applaud you Star Jones! My heart goes out to Heath Ledger's family! To Michelle, stay strong I can't imagine going through this but if anything Matilda is whats most important! Protect her through this difficult time! My deepest Sympathy!

  89. peisinoe says – reply to this


    Starr is spot on the money here. It is truly sickening that the pap were waiting for Michelle and waiting outside his apartment for the body. I love to read about the celebs as much as anyone else who visits here (or any of the other sites) but some things are private and NOT meant for our entertainment and/or sick fascination. They deserve to grieve in peace. If they are standing out on their front stoop spouting off at the mouth than by all means snap away. But the pap should let grief be a private thing.

  90. kelso says – reply to this


    So true. it is sick how the media expludes people in such a negative manner. it was absolutely disgusting the amount of poeple waiting for the body bag to come out. my brother passed away this year and i can not imaging dealing with it along with the crowds of media and speculation. Sick.

  91. S says – reply to this


    If you agree why don't you stop with all the gossip about the whole thing. You pride yourself on being the first to break news, but it's not news, it's gossip. You fuel it just as much as the paparazzi does by reporting bogus rolled up $20 bills and numerous bottles of pills around his body/bed. You say you agree with everything Star Jones writes then why don't you wait to have confirmation of facts before "reporting" it on your site like you're a real journalist?

    I am from England. Star Jones is not known here - we do not have the View on TV. Having read her words I am impressed with the lady. Nuff said

  94. KITTY says – reply to this


    If you believe everything she said, then stop reporting on his death and the speculations of it.

  95. Lola says – reply to this


    She got it.
    He was an amazing person and an extremely talented actor. Those are the only things that should be said about him.
    Let his family feel love and support.
    Not hate.

    Wow, go ahead Star….she's a lawyer, mmhhmm.
    That was very nice.

  97. John Boy in Toronto says – reply to this


    I never thought I would ever support Star Jones but, never say never. I could not agree with her more. Leave those poor people alone to grieve their loss. We the public do not need all the details minute by minute.

  98. dyannpa says – reply to this


    I remember when Jacki Kennedy died in NY…almost same thing..folks and photo hogs lined up outside…then her body bag comes out…I thought it was so sad..
    With the millions they pay to live in these condo's in NY, don't they have basement door they can go out of…

  99. Nunya says – reply to this


    That's a little hypocritical Perez. You've been posting all the speculation over Heath. So how do you then go and say you agree w/ Star Jones when she is talking about YOU!?!?! Seriously.

  100. Senor Foxxxy says – reply to this


    I will be the first to say I not a Star Jones fan , but she said what most people are thinking. The fact that there were paparazzi when the are putting his body into the back of the ambulance made me ill. Leave his family, in particular Michelle Williams and Matilda, alone.
