Our cameras caught up with Corey Feldman as he arrived at the CNN building for an appearance on Larry King Live to talk about the death of his best friend, Corey Haim. In a statement, Feldman said:
“I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother, Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face.
I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend.
We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived.”
Very well said. If Corey Haim’s passing is this sad for me, I could hardly imagine what the other half of the Two Coreys must be going through right now.
Last night was the LA premiere of Spread, and the celebrities came out en masse for the event. And by en masse, I mean that the Moore/Kutcher family was there, along with some of my favorite people from the 80s (I’m talking to you, Corey Feldman). And Soleil Moon Frye! I haven’t seen her since I watched a Punky Brewster rerun in the mid 90s!
Gene Simmons, Carrot Top, Danny Bonaduce and Corey Feldman got wild on the red carpet at the “Gene Simmons Roast,” last night. The evening, hosted by comedian Jeffrey Ross, was a benefit for Wounded Warriors and featured “roasts” by celebs and comedians including: Brian Poshen, Dave Navarro, Craig Gass, Eddie Griffin, Fred Armisen, Jim Norton, John Heffron, Lisa Lampanelli, Ralphie May, Shannon Tweed and Steve O. As usual for a “roast” Simmons was targeted by a panel, selected from his peers and some current comedians, who pointed out some of the more humorous points of his personal and professional life. The “Gene Simmons Roast” will air on A&E sometime in April 2008.
Here are some names that haven’t reached the tips of most of our tongues since the ’80s: Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Who can forget their most famous partnership in The Lost Boys?
Since then, both have gone through their ups and downs, Feldman becoming a clean-cut family man and Haim just emerging from a long struggle with drug addiction. But, the pair is back together now in the new A&E reality show, “The Two Coreys” that premieres tonight and is modeled from “The Odd Couple.”
