Tabloid Whore!



Some of you may remember him playing Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith Show, but I remember Don Knotts more as Mr. Furley from Three's Company. Sadly, Knotts died on Friday from pulmonary and respiratory problems at the age of 81. I have to be honest, when I read the news, my first thought was, "gosh, I thought he was dead already." So sad. Now I feel horrible. I also feel bad because even though I liked Knotts, I never really liked Mr. Furley on Three's Company and always wished the Ropers would come back and kick him out of their apartment. Saying that, Don Knotts was a great actor who was in seven television series and more than 25 films. I bet my 'ol pal Mark from the Mark and Brian Show is just crushed right now. He loved that damn Andy Griffith Show. Don Knotts said he embraced being remembered for his Barney Fife character as it was the role he was most proud of. He has said his favorite episodes were "The Pickle Story," where Aunt Bea makes pickles no one can eat, and "Barney and the Choir," where no one can stop him from singing.
Rest in peace dear Don Knotts. Once again, so sorry for not liking Mr. Furley.
