Whoopi Is Not Impressed With Suzanne Somers

In the wake of Patrick Swayze's death, Suzanne Somers was quoted saying some very controversial remarks regarding the late actor's cancer treatments. Close friend to Patrick, Whoopi Goldberg, had some words for Suzanne on Tuesday's episode of The View:

"In case she doesn't know, Patrick did everything and went everywhere to try and stay healthy as long as he could. That he's been gone a week and this statement came out is bad timing and bad taste and Suzanne, you should know better. And I'm not sure that's what you meant to do, but you should have thought about it."

We agree!

However Suzanne has addressed the unfortunate misunderstanding on her website and she does sound very apologetic:

"In a casual conversation at a private party (with someone who never identified himself as a reporter) at the Toronto Film Festival last week, I was asked about this beloved actor. It was never my intention to make an official statement about his passing. I was not informed or aware I was being interviewed. I would never have been so insensitive as to offer a public statement so close to his untimely passing. I sincerely apologize if my comment has caused any additional pain to his family during this difficult time. I send my deepest condolences for their loss."

You have to be more careful who you're blabbing to, especially about such a sensitive issue!

You just never know who could be listening!

One of the last things Patrick Swayze did while he was alive was finish his autobiography called The Time of My Life. Along with the actual book, fans of Patrick should know that the actor did an emotional and heartfelt reading of his new autobiography that is said to give you chills.

The reading will be released as an audiobook CD and will be available on the same day the book releases, September 29, 2009.

With his recent passing, this will add a whole new subtext to his actual text.

Suzanne Somers' Controversial Remarks About Patrick Swayze's Death!

| Filed under: Super SeniorsPatrick Swayze

After the tragic passing of Patrick Swayze, many stars have been opening up about their cherished memories of the late actor.

However, Suzanne Somers, in a controversial move, is criticizing Swayze's cancer treatments, saying that it was the chemotherapy that caused his death.

A known advocate of alternative health methods, Somers is reported as saying:

"They took a beautiful man and put poison in his body. Why couldn't they have built him up nutritionally and gotten rid of the toxins? I hate to be controversial…but I have to speak out."

While Suzanne probably meant well, especially as a survivor of breast cancer, we're not sure if a comment like this should have been released.

Chemotherapy has been known to save many lives and pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease. Patrick fought his illness bravely for a long time and comments like these could be hurtful to his grieving loved ones.

We kinda think she should have shut her trap!

What do U think?

Such a compliment to his work!

On the live results show next Wednesday, Dancing with the Stars will pay tribute to Patrick Swayze, whose recent passing was a sudden shock to the entertainment community.

“We have some very fond memories of [the late actor] coming to help us out when we were a tiny little show way back when,” said Conrad Green, Dancing’s executive producer.

The beloved actor and trained dancer made an appearance of Dancing with the Stars' first season in 2005, demonstrating a few moves in rehearsal for friend John O’Hurley and even came to support the show by attending the season 1 finale.

“He was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor,” continued Green. “He inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments he’s brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films.”

Can't wait. Will U be watching?!

Keanu Reeves Speaks On The Passing Of Patrick Swayze

| Filed under: Patrick SwayzeKeanu Reeves

It seems Patrick Swayze was really a pleasure to work with as another former costar reveals.

According to Keanu Reeves, his Point Break costar did not only commit himself to a role, but lived life to the limits - and fearlessly.

Keanu states:

"There was some sky diving sequences in this film we did together and as filming was going on it came to be that Patrick was jumping out of airplanes all the time. I think he had over 30 jumps during the course of filming and so the production served him with a cease and desist which he listened to until they got to Hawaii. He jumps out of planes and did the flips and falling to the ground and he did it with an open heart."

"He was a beautiful person, an artist. Patrick, he just wanted to experience life and for his work he wanted to take the opportunity of the film and it gave him that sense."

"I can say what I know that he lived life to the fullest. My sympathies and condolences go out to his friends and family."

So sweet!
