John Travolta Tried To Perform Oral Sex On Kenickie?!

John Travolta tried to grope Jeff Conaway

More and more allegations are pouring out about John Travolta's sexual antics.

Another masseur, who isn't interested in a lawsuit, told the National Enquirer that he had consensual sex with the actor, but the latest claim is even MORE shocking.

The tabloid is reporting that Danny Zuko tried to oil up Kenickie's Grease Lightning with his mouth in the early 90s!

What!?

Jeff Conaway used to be best buds with his Grease co-star, but the deceased actor's longtime girlfriend Vicki Lizzi (pictured above) spilled that their friendship abruptly ended after he awoke to discover Travolta performing oral sex on him!

Snub! Taxi Star Jeff Conaway Omitted From Emmy In Memoriam Segment

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadEmmys

How could you guys forget Bobby Wheeler?! Not cool.

As it is with every year it seems, a prominent and celebrated star was omitted from the In Memoriam presentation last night at the Emmys. This year, it was Jeff Conaway, who was best known for his role on Taxi, but also has a longrunning role on Babylon 5 and was a guest star on many beloved shows like Matlock and Murder, She Wrote.

Seems like a pretty grievous oversight to exclude someone who has made such an impact in television.

Care to explain, Emmy folks?

P.S. - We already know the answer. There's only so much time. We try, but we can't always fit everybody. Blah, blah, blah.

Jeff Conaway's Family Awaits Autopsy Ruling, Struggles With Funeral Plans

Filed under: Sad Sad

jeff conaway family awaits toxicology results before funeral

Yesterday, we learned that late actor Jeff Conaway's family decided to have an autopsy performed on his body to ensure that foul play wasn't involved in his death.

Now, his autopsy is complete and his body has been released to the Los Angeles County Coroner as the family awaits the autopsy ruling/toxicology test results, which could take as much as six weeks.

In the meanwhile, they're attempting to start planning Jeff's funeral, but they're struggling with it.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"Michelle and Carla are grappling with what type of service to have for Jeff. They are simply overwhelmed with the logistics of planning the funeral. Jeff is going to be cremated, but it could take place in a few weeks or in the next few months."

"They also have to contend with how to handle Jeff's ex-fiancee, Vikki Spinoza. There is no love lost between Vikki and Jeff's family. They need to work out what's the best way to handle the situation. They're going to take their time to plan something special and meaningful."

We don't blame Jeff's family for feeling overwhelmed, but we know they'll figure it out and we're sure everything will go just fine with the funeral.

Our thoughts remain with Jeff's family and friends during this difficult time.

Jeff Conaway Passes Away

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadDr. DrewTwitter

Such a tragedy.

Last week, we had heard that Jeff Conaway's condition was "stable" and we were hoping for good news, but then on Saturday Dr. Drew tweeted that Jeff had taken a turn for the worse, and unfortunately he was right.

Jeff Conaway died today at 60 years old, after being in a coma for two weeks following a pneumonia diagnosis.

We were truly hoping that he would recover, but his body was just too weak as an effect of his long-term drug addiction.

Our thoughts go out to Jeff's family and friends during this difficult time.

Very, very sad.

Jeff Conaway Taken A "Tenuous" Turn, According To Dr. Drew

Filed under: Dr. Drew

So sad. We were so hoping for some good news.

On Friday evening, Dr. Drew tweeted out that his former Celebrity Rehab patient, Jeff Conaway, who was diagnosed with pneumonia earlier this week, was "stable" and was optimistic that Jeff would be better soon.

However, on Saturday, Dr. Drew's optimism seemed all but gone when he tweeted again, saying that Jeff had taken a turn for the worse. He told his followers that he had just visited with Jeff again and that the poor guy was in a very "tenuous" state that came on very "suddenly."

Poor thing!

Our best wishes and prayers continue to be with him in this most difficult time. We hope to have better news to share soon.

Poor guy is still in a coma, but at least there is some hope.

Dr. Drew, who got to know Jeff Conaway very well when the star appeared on his reality program, Celebrity Rehab, tweeted yesterday that he went to visit his former patient who is currently fighting pneumonia. He updated his followers on Jeff's condition, which sadly has not changed, and confirmed that Jeff did NOT OD. He tweeted:

"Just visited Jeff Conaway.He is stable & looks like he will recover from his pneumonia.Not an OD like press is alleging & certainly not dead"

We're pleased to hear that Jeff is going to recover - that is certainly the kind of update we wanted - and we continue to send our best wishes to him and his family during this difficult time. Nice to know he has a doctor on call too!
