RIP Donna Douglas Elly May Clampett dead at 81

Donna Douglas has indeed said, "HOWDY" to her maker and is dead.

According  to Steve Cox, author of the book The Beverly Hillbillies, Max Baer has confirmed this.

There is talk that she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about 4 months ago.


According to Shelly Brown of The Browns gospel singers.


There is finally an legit news agency reporting it.



Things are funky though.  The Examiner published a lengthy obit, but took it down.


Some douche on Wikipedia posted a death date, then took it down, then put it back up, then took it down.  EXHAUSTING.

Donna sued Disney for stealing the idea for Sister Act.  They offered he a settlement, she refused and pursued more.  She lost  She sued Mattel for creating a Barbie Doll in her image.  She settled with them.  She wasn't gonna let that shit happen again.

Donna was a kind and shy woman.  Very shy.  EXTREMELY shy.  

Bananas.

  2. Back in the 80's Ms. Douglas sat next to me on a Delta flight from L.A. to Atlanta. She brought her makeup case on with her. We chatted for a while and she said she was on the way to speak at some sort of religious meeting in Atlanta. She was decked out in full Elly May regalia. Pink and white checkered pant suit and the pigtails and GOBS of makeup. The interesting thing was that she pulled that makeup case out literally every 30 minutes and did a complete reapply. I counted 8 reapplies during that flight. She must have put 2 gallons of war paint on during that 4 hour flight. She seemed very sweet, but very fragile, dazed, and frankly a little out of it. I got the feeling she lived in her own little world and nothing could have gotten her out of it.
