This is a bad month to be a celebrity...damn.
DEVELOPING: Television pitchman Billy Mays-who built his fame by appearing on commercials and infomercials promoting household products and gadgets-died Sunday, FOX News confirms.
Mays was found unresponsive by his wife inside his Tampa, Fla., home at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry to May's residence and foul play is not suspected. Authorities said an autopsy should be complete by Monday afternoon.

My daughter used to love him when she was little and he did his oxyclean commercials. She used to beg me to stay up to watch his infomercials. She's a lot older now, but when I told her this morning what happened, she actually teared up.
What is the craziness going on this month with celebrities? And there's still three more days left until June is over!
I'm with you, flightnurse2b. I am thinking subdural hematoma...slow bleed. *nods*
He lives in Tampa, right near me...so this is huge news here.

Apparently Billy Mays died of cardiac disease. Not that it makes it any easier but doggone, he was YOUNG and seemed to be healthy.
He leaves his wife, a three-year-old daughter, and a twenty-year-old son from a previous marriage.
Okay, fellow mid-lifers! We have to start taking care of our hearts if we haven't been heart-healthy already.
