Kate Gosselin & Michael Jackson

Very random thoughts.

Actress Farrah Fawcett died earlier today after a battle with cancer. Later in the day, pop star Michael Jackson died unexpectedly of a heart attack.

As I thumbed through the most recent issue of People magazine, it occurred to me that the next issue would most likely be graced with a large photograph of the legendary moon walker accompanied by a smaller side note mentioning the death of the ex-Charlie's Angels star.

And then it dawned on me. For the first time in over a month, neither Kate or Jon Gosselin would be THE headline news. (After the stress of announcing their plans to divorce on the most recent episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight, I imagine they need a little break from the spotlight!)

Kate Gosselin is 34 years old, just a few years older than I am, which makes me think she probably grew up watching Charlie's Angels and listening to Michael Jackson. When thinking all this, I could not help but chuckle because do you think she ever in million years thought she'd be making headline news repeatedly, being featured on multiple magazine covers -- only to be replaced by the deaths of such icons?!?

Yes, random thoughts.
I know.
