Meshach Taylor

was on last week's episode of Criminal Minds

by Anonymousreply 7401/01/2015

And he was quite good, too. Was he doing a character voice, or has his real voice changed dramatically?

He looks TORE UP, hunty.

There's nothing on Wikipedia. Can't believe you losers are trying to get a Meshach Taylor death hoax going...set the bar higher next time.

by Anonymousreply 1706/27/2014

Im sorry, I'm the one who started the death thing. I misread what I read on another website. Basically his family posted something on Facebook saying he is currently passing at any minute. Sorry to upset everyone but Im glad his family is able to spend more time with him.

Etienne wants to know if he died, too.

Has Meshach Taylor from Designing Women passed away?

What's wrong with him?

He apparently died?

Lipstick alley says he's gone.

by Anonymousreply 2206/28/2014

Friends of mine have posted links on FB that he's terminally ill. (The link is RumorFix so I won't post here.)

Which would match R22's post, which says he's "begun his grand transition."

Wikipedia's been updated, but no official new source has anything yet.

Hey! Just like me!

by Anonymousreply 2506/28/2014

LSA also mentions Bobby Womack in the same instance. Has he also been seriously ill? Has he died as well?

by Anonymousreply 2606/28/2014

R26, Bobby Womack died last night:

I'm glad Bobby Womack did his album with Damon from Blur last year. It was good, and he got a last blast of fanfare.

by Anonymousreply 2806/28/2014

Thanks for the Bobby Womack link!

That was a bizarre message his family posted.

by Anonymousreply 3006/28/2014

Well he might be dead . . .

by Anonymousreply 3106/28/2014

. . . or he might not be.

Is Meshach gay or what? I know he's married with kids, but he was a little TOO good as "Hollywood" in those 'Mannequin' movies.

by Anonymousreply 3306/28/2014

He's married and he's an ACTOR babe.

by Anonymousreply 3406/28/2014

From his family:

"It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic, Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition. Our friends who know and love us, please offer your prayers for his peace and blazing light as he ascends to the heavens. Those who need to call the family please do. Those who desire to post memories, we are open and graciously accepting all gestures of peace. Love, the Taylor Family Tariq TaylorYasmine TaylorTamar Lashae TaylorEsme Taylor"

Will Delta Burke make a rare public appearance at the funeral, or is she too fat to leave the house now?

Has "begun his grand transition" sounds like assisted suicide.

by Anonymousreply 4906/29/2014

He was receiving "Hospice at Home" care.

by Anonymousreply 5006/29/2014

Don't knock it. When my mother was consumed (she weighed 68lbs down from her normal 98lbs) with cancer, they couldn't put that last shot in her IV quick enough. Leave Hollywood Montrose a dignified death, and STFU.

by Anonymousreply 5106/29/2014

Not really, R49. Probably means he'd gone unconscious and it was just a waiting game at that point. It's fairly common for cancer victims to spend their last few days in a coma "transitioning".

by Anonymousreply 5206/29/2014

R33 Haven't seen Mannequin in years but found this compilation of Meshach's clips from it. You are right, he was very convincing. And fabulous! Watching this I remember I had a huge crush on Andrew McCarthy. I must only have been about 9 or 10 when I first saw this. Seeing Andrew, I knew what I was....

RIP Meshach.

by Anonymousreply 5306/29/2014

Wonderful actor. And his story of Celebrity Ghost Stories was one of the few to creep me out.

Will be missed.

by Anonymousreply 5406/29/2014

is covering up AIDS deaths really doing anything positive? Making it seem like people aren't still dying from AIDS when in fact they still are?

by Anonymousreply 5506/29/2014

R55 You're probably one of the idiots who insist Andy Warhol died of AIDS instead of shitty healthcare. Grease fire. Think about dying in one.

by Anonymousreply 5606/29/2014

Loved his elevator scene death in THE OMEN 2.

by Anonymousreply 5706/29/2014

r56 - who? never heard of him.

Meshach was gay; now he dies of an unspecified cancer? Also since 1991 a total of ZERO men and women in Hollywood have contracted HIV. Do you believe this is even close to being credible?

by Anonymousreply 5806/29/2014

You know he was gay or you think he was? Got some tea?

by Anonymousreply 5906/29/2014

well I read on this very site that he was gay; well he had gay sex with different men

by Anonymousreply 6006/29/2014

His wife, children, grandchildren and mother surrounded him as he passed away, his publicist said

by Anonymousreply 6106/29/2014

r61 I hope you aren't suggesting he couldn't be gay because he was married?

by Anonymousreply 6206/29/2014

If he was HIV+, is it more likely that he seroconverted in the 90s and got access to ARVs pretty quickly?

'Meschach Taylor: I can give you the names and numbers of at least 5 men who fucked Taylor when he was a Chicago actor."

Wow. I thought he was actually younger. I'm watching his Criminal Minds episode now and looked him up as I'm only familiar with Designing Women. He was fantastic in that episode. I had no idea he'd passed away. I thought he was 10 yrs. younger. RIP.
