    i thought that would be the case

  • Always call 911!!!!

    Should have told the masseuse to hang-up and call 911…. Hopefully, she will leave those instructions on behalf of herself or sister!

    No matter if she was a “friend” she should have demonstrated common sense in this story.

    LAST YEAR AROUND THIS TIME HEATHA ND MICHELLE GOT MARRIED IN SECRET . so i assume marykate wants to be as respectful to the family and michelle as possible. I mean he was newly seperated from Michelle.. They offically seperated in sept 07…. And they were married or are married.. michelle wanted to keep her realationship out of the press and anything to do with it.. she likes her private life..I hear the date could have been the 22 .. which would beso ireeeyyy .. I know mk is into some drugs but i think you guys are beig so sour towards her.. She had nothing to do with his death !!

    the look very good togetherrrr

    poor heath :(

  • Agnieszka from Poland

    My thoughts are with his family too… I cried when I heard about his death… It was so untimely… :(

  • shay

    When you work for a celebrity you have rules to follow.. The woman probably thought of it as mk was next of kin .. So she called her to say hey heath isn’t breathing please help me i know you and hima re close.. i see drugs aroun dhis bed i’m so scared .. i don’t want to alert the media .. please help me.. Mk was probably like omg omg i’ll get my security over to clean up the mess .. she probably thought he could be saved.. and i bet the woman then frantic was like no i’m calling 911 and the security/emts and the emergencey all arrived at the same times.. so mk’s guys didn’t get to revive him or so they thought they could or clean up any pills ,drugs etc.. How many times do celebities go into the hospital for exhaustion? NEWS FLASH that does not happen !! It’s because she have odied and one of there security guys saved them then had them emitted into the hospital for “exhaustion” to cover up the od to the media. I KNOW for a fact from my friend that MK has odied.. and her entering rehab for anorexia was a cover up for her actually entrance into rehab for “drugs”.. I’ms ure Heath was a party boy .. i’m sure this wasn’t on purpose.. and it’s sad… But just because he partied with Mk doesn’t make her a demon who killed him… I’m sure he has dabbled throughout the years with in and our of use with drugs.. WE all do things here and there.. do not act as if you have some holy wings growing out your backs.

  • oga

    They were Friends WITH BENEFITS is what she meant.

  • lu

    Give him some respect, he has only been dead a few days!

    Let his family grieve without having to read these dumb ass stories in the news!

  • lily

    I agree #11. I am glad to see MK is being respectful to Michelle, baby Matilda and their family.

    The “masseus” and the maid is suspicious to me. I mean not calling 911 first?

    RIP Heath. Man I cried when I heard the news. I was in shock

  • me

    she is gross. he was a cutie. So sad..

  • me

    she is gross. he was a cutie. So sad..

  • CG

    she is cutie

  • fan

    Were Heath and Michelle really married?

  • OMG

    GOD BLESS!

  • m

    Wasn’t MK, rushed to the hospital a few months ago for fainting or something. The press said it was exhaustion.
    Still I think it was cool that a fine actor of Heath’s stature showed friendship to Mary Kate. This story is such a juicy True Hollywood Story, I can already see the producers gathering the reels and press clips and old Heath interviews to write the Heath Ledger ..E!TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY.
    He is the new version of James Dean, he will be forever young, handsome and talented. Heath’s legend has already started.

  • layton

    i am pissed- the masseuse should have called 911 right when she learned he wasn’t responsive. instead it took her 30 minutes before she called 911. what the hell there was a chance he could have been saved!

  • Nancy

    I find their connection really weird. That is a sober response from someone who was called first when Heath was discovered. How did Heath tell her apart from the other twin whose name I forget, they look a like I never could tell them apart.

  • neela

    I agree with Leyton. That should be looked into, and if it is so that his death is a direct cause of the 30 minute delay, toss her ass in jail. The world don’t need another massuse, we need Heath :(

  • marn

    Mk next of kin on what planet!!! If the masseuse & the housekeeper had his phone they could have called his parent= Next of kin I’m sure it was under mum & dad or perhaps Michelle, Those two idiots (masseuse & housekeeper) are responsible for his parents finding out through the media …I hope they have to face his family when they come to NY to collect Heath’s Body.. RIP mate
    What A f**king shambles Who notified the media? The cops?, The masseuse? The housekeeper? Mary-Kate? what a mess his poor family

  • tEALEAF

    Everyone is acting like Mary-Kate shot him, she was called and responded as best as she could, she didn’t know he was dying. Also Heath seemed to have move on from Michelle…I feel bad for Matilda

  • charisma

    Very generic statement indeed. Strangers have written more eloquently. Creepy as it may be, strangers seem to have a better way with words than the only notable person linked to this poor guy when he died. I didn’t expect anything from the little nightmare but that statement is really disappointing. That would totally offend me even in my humble little life. Hollywood and their stupid little “statements”. Enough already. Nobody really cares. I’m so glad that I’m not a celebrity!

    But seriously…with the statements… if I READ one more I’ll totally freak. Nobody cares. Nobody should want to put their simple words where it doesn’t count for anything. It’s not like Heath’s family is looking to OK MAGAZINE for sympathy. It’s tacky to say the very least.

  • luckyL

    …and the police are still going to interrogate your a** Mary-Kate

  • hammer

    so sad!

    god bless him and r.i.p.

  • remember da truth

    Charisma make up your dim little mind. Either she shouldn’t make a statement or she should!
    She HAD to because of idiots like on this thread speculating about their relationship, but out of respect for Heath, his daughter, his family, etc she didn’t elaborate for YOUR benefit. I’m sure she has made private communication to the family. As she says, her thoughts are with his FAMILY at this time, not stupid fans who still want to hate on threads about what is indeed, a tragic loss.

    And if you have any sense at all, you would realize that Heath was DEAD ALREADY when the masseuse got there! Remember how the housekeeper found him “asleep” two hours earlier???? Do any of you READ or just change things around for your own amusement? The masseuse found Heath cold to the touch — a dead person doesn’t turn cold immediately, jackasses! It takes a long time.
    MK had been dating him, so she called her, wanting to keep it from the media, which if paramedics came first, like they did, would alert the media.
    Yes, Heath was dating Gemma Ward. You can go out on a date and still date others, and not have it be serious and sign each other’s yearbooks — such children on here! Just because two adults go out, even sleep together, does not make them boyfriend/girlfriend. It’s what ADULTS do. Get over it.

  • remember da truth

    Can’t believe the stupidity and insensitivity here.
    How do you know MK didn’t tell the masseuse to call 911? She was trying to protect Heath from the media, so it wouldn’t turn out like it has. She was acting as a FRIEND would. She has acted with dignity and class through this — wish people here would.

  • lauren

    leave mk alonee!! its not her fault!

  • TheExpatriot

    How could it have been otherwise? The Olsons are asexual. Wait til they rip off their masks and reveal their true identity.

  • Allye

    wow, they weren’t dating?

    thats a load off my mind, because you know that was what was making ME upset….not the fact hhe just passed away…

  • Allye

    hope you all got my sarcasm

  • Zana

    Oh my GOD, some people are HORRIBLE! Heath has not even been dead for a week. Please, show some respect. His family and friends (and FYI, that includes MK) are going through a hard enough time as it is.
    Heath’s death was an accident and it had NOTHING to do with Mary-Kate. The masseuse called MK instead of 911, but how was MK supposed to know that? Also, Heath and the masseuse were in New York, while MK was in LA! What was she supposed to do? What could she possibly have done, other than what she did?

    I agree with #35, this was not MK’s fault! She was a FRIEND! She got a phone call from a hysterical woman over in NY, telling her that she thought Heath was dead. Seriously, how do you think YOU would have reacted? I bet not as well as MK did. MK did all she could and she was a friend of Heath’s. She’s just as sad over this as all his other friends, and then having people write this horrible, completely disrespectful things about her! Why do you do it? Her friend just died while she was not even anywhere near and some people have the nerve to suggest SHE had something to do with it? Get real!
