Ed McMahon is fighting to save his home from foreclosure

Ed McMahon

Ed McMahon is fighting to save his home from foreclosure.

The comedian is facing foreclosure on his multi-million dollar Beverly Hills, California mansion after he fell behind with his mortgage repayments.

McMahon reportedly owes $600,000 in overdue payments and a repossession company has filed a default notice on the property – meaning he could now lose the house altogether.

The 85-year-old has been out of work for 18 months after breaking his neck in a fall. He has been attempting to sell the $6.25 million home for two years, but the weak property market in the state has meant no buyers have come forward.

Alex Davis, the agent hired by McMahon to sell the property, has also blamed the house’s location on the lack of interest from buyers – as its close proximity to Britney Spears’ home has been putting people off.

He says, “When we were trying to sell the house one time, there were about 100 paparazzi there.”

Kelsey Grammer is recovering after his heart attack

Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer is recuperating after suffering a mild heart attack, according to his spokesman.

The Frasier star had been paddle-boarding off the coast of Hawaii, where he has a second home, when he experienced chest pains on May 31st.

The 53-year-old is now “resting comfortably” after being admitted to an undisclosed hospital, said his spokesman Stan Rosenfield.

Rosenfield told Star magazine the former Cheers actor had been paddle-boarding off the Kona coast of Hawaii’s Big Island with his wife Camille when he experienced cardiovascular symptoms.

He was admitted to hospital where “it was determined that he had a mild heart attack”.

“Kelsey is doing fine now and he will be going home tomorrow,” Rosenfield added.

Grammer played Dr. Frasier Crane for two decades on Cheers and in eight series of Frasier, as well as voicing the villainous Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons.

Though his success as the psychiatrist saw him becoming, at one point, the highest paid actor on US television, his latest series has not been so successful.

His Fox sitcom Back to You, in which Grammer played a lascivious anchorman, was cancelled after one season.
