Plague, pestilence, famine...what next?
Countrywide is foreclosing on Ed Mcmahon. Mcmahon, the former sweepstakes pitchman and chortling Johnny Carson sidekick, has defaulted on his multimillion-dollar Beverly Hills home, says the AP. His house has been on the market for two years, but is located so close to Britney Spears' house that he's having trouble selling it. A spokesperson for Ed says he's been unable to work since breaking his neck 18 months ago.
Coincidentally, Countrywide, the questionable mortgage lender, has also fallen on rough times lately.
