Barbara Eden is listed (or ranked) 15 on the list Old Celebrities You Didn't Realize Are Still Alive

 

Barbara Eden turns 90 next year. I don't have much other reason though.

I always confused her and Stella Stevens, maybe, back in their younger days, they were similar looking.

I just looked up Stella Stevens and, apparently, she is in a nursing home with alzheimer's.

If that info is elsewhere on here then so be it.

Stella Stevens would be an excellent choice both for the committee and anybody deadpooling.

Well, it seems what remains of Jaswant Singh was hospitalized some weeks ago for an infection. He has recovered anyway.

Or maybe not.

As mentioned in People I was Surprised To Find Still Alive Thread. Former Match Of The Day and ITV football Commentator  Gerald Sinstadt is 90. Guaranteed QO from the BBC at least I reckon

Good inspiration, it made me find this ranking of great Sports commentators, all obitable I guess, if alive:

Barry Davies seems like an idea..

 

And John Motson very recently broke two ribs in a fall:

He was the one who had his career blighted somewhat by being caught wanking in a porn cinema, right?

So, 40th London Marathon about to take place. Reading on race history the first woman winner Joyce Smith was a veteran athlete when she won, and then defended her title. Still holds the record for margin of victory (nine minutes clear of the second woman in her first victory)

 

She'll be 83 next month - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joyce_Smith

The tv-series with Hugh Grant as Thorpe was hilarious. An absolute must-see.

 

Yes indeed.  Hugh Grant was surprisingly excellent, and so was Ben Whishaw as Norman.  Priceless.

Yuriko, princess Mikasa, hospitalised with pneumonia and heart failure. Treatment are only to prolong her life expectancy, not to cure her. Good pick for 2021 if she makes it.

Not a celebrity in the usual sense, but death has tried to claim him many times and is known as the world's most unlucky luckiest man.

  • 1962 - Survived a train crash where everyone on board (17) died except him.
  • 1963 - Survived the next year where he was blown out of a plane door and landed in a haystack. Plane crashed and everyone else on board died.
  • 1966 - Bus that he was riding in skidded off the road and into a river drowning four. Selak swam to shore with a few cuts and bruises.
  • 1970  - Car caught fire as he was driving and he managed to escape before the fuel tank blew up.
  • 1973 - Engine of his car was doused with hot oil from a malfunctioning fuel pump, causing flames to shoot through the air vents. Selak's hair was completely singed in this incident, but he was otherwise unharmed.
  • 1995 - Struck by a bus but sustained only minor injuries.
  • 1996 - Avoided head-on collision with a truck on a mountain curve by swerving in a guardrail. He was ejected from the car when the door flew open, (he wasn't wearing a seatbelt) managed to hold onto a tree, and watched his car plummet down 300 ft into a gorge.

Death must have wanted to reward him after that because in 2003 he won the lottery and got €900000.

Plot twist: he's actually a schizophrenic homicidal maniac, carefully planning his mass murders to look like accidents where he was able to make a quick escape each time. :P
