It must be third time lucky for cancer for Dead-endy Richard.

I prefer "Dead-ender" Wendy Richard.

 

She's a dead cert for 2009, having had cancer spread to the kidneys, ribs and spine. I had thought she might not make it past New Year, as the last photographs showed her to be clearly very ill. She was only slightly better looking than my avatar.

 

When she left Eastenders, she said, "I'm sad to leave the show but life has to go on."

 

Hmmmmm.....

If she ends up with anything amputated then "Are you being severed?" is waiting in the wings.

Speaking of puns Eejit, I'd say your current posting frenzy and surge to a strong lead in the Deathrace means you are on fire!

Wendy is an absolute "lock" for 2009, no doubt about it. Looking very, very bad in October, but I was saying the same thing about Keith Richard 10 years ago.

'I'm NOT dying,' insists Wendy Richard as she opens up about her gruelling battle with cancer...

 

Wendy, 65, has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer that attacked her kidney and spread to the top of her spine and her left ribs.

When the news broke last year, it was claimed that her disease was terminal.

 

But the actress, who has twice battled breast cancer and lost her hair six weeks ago, told the People: ‘I'm certainly not thinking about dying. Wendy Richard is going to be around a long time yet.'

You have to love the canny unscrupulous way in which advertising software works.

 

A link to this is what I see next to the Wendy Richard story. I am surprised it wasn't for face lifts on seeing her photo, she's looking like she's picked a particularly sour lemon to suck today. Still Pauline Fowler always liked to put on her best dour old bitch look.

I think I might have made a mistake of leaving her out of my DDP team, after seeing that... ;)

She deserves to die just for referring to herself in the third person. Who does she think she is, Kevin Keegan?

Figured this would happen sooner than later. The news of her ailment didn't come across that she had the cancer, the news broke when it spread, suggesting she'd be ill beforehand.

Deadly Doug will probably be starting a thread soon to advise us of her sad demise.

Her greatest hit was "Come outside" which she recorded at the age of 15 with a dirty old man.

On the basis of the quasi-shotgun, cancer catalysed, wedding being directly proportional to an untimely date of death theorem, I predict Jade should bite the bullet on the 11th July 2009.

So bye bye Wendy, you were great,

In are you being Served;

But being served no longer,

At least, that's what I heard.

 

You made a disc when you were young

With someone called Mike Sarne;

I bet they re-release it,

And it goes to number 1.

 

But tomorrow night at 9.30,

On Long Island PBS TV;

I'll gladly switch the box on,

Because with the gang, that's where you'll be.

Behind the counter, with the lady with the pussy,

And that other dead guy, who acts like a proper wussy,

And I shall morn.

Ground floor fatality,

Departure and mortality,

Clammy soil and purgatory

Funeralwear, worm food... going down! (paah, papa pah pah pah, ker-ching etc)

Knew this one was coming but wasn't happy about it. It's the price of this deadly game of ours that we maintain our sense of humor when it hurts.

Sad news but at least I've now got my first hit of the year!

Wendy Richard was the second hit of 2009.

She was the 176th hit since 1987.

The 2009 list is now in 20th place out of a possible 23 lists.

 

I daresay she was a very popular pick on the DDP. I put her on mine, but failed to pick Goody.
