And Now, A Long Distance Dedication: Dear Casey…
Do you think if Casey Kasem knew what was going on with his life right now, he would approve? Or would he just use it to introduce a "long-distance dedication?"
Kasem, who is fighting Alzheimers' and a host of other aliments, keeps getting shuttled between medical facilities and his "home" with weirdo wife Jean Kasem (remember her from "Cheers?" She was Nic Tortelli's wife?).
Now, the court is getting involved with his adult children.
The latest in the soap opera? "Casey Kasem's Wife Threw Raw Meat At His Daughter to Protest His Hospitalization"
Kerri Kasem, the radio legend's daughter, brought an ambulance to Kasem's home in order to transport him to the hospital; paramedics were refused entry, and in an apparent act of defiance, Kasem's wife, Jean, came outside and threw a pound of raw hamburger meat at Kerri.
Like you could make this stuff up.
Despite the meat missile, the ambulance crew was able to wheel Kasem out of the home after the incident.
Jean Kasem defended the meat attack in an interview with NBC News:
In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs."
For Casey's sake, I hope he passes soon and reaches for the stars. Living a life like this with these looney birds isn't worth it.
