Bea Arthur: May 13, 1922 April 25, 2009

We could think of no better to pay tribute to this amazing woman than to share with you some of our favorite Bea Arthur moments -- including scenes from episodes of Maude, candid interviews and some Golden Girls highlights.

American Idol Calls Paramedics For Frankie Avalon

Photo: Frankie Avalon Surprise Guest on American IdolThere was some dancing-with-the-stars-worthy drama backstage at American Idol tonight.

After the broadcast, Ryan Seacrest, tweeting from his Blackberry, told his followers that Frankie Avalon had a bit of a medical scare right before his live appearance on tonight's American Idol elimination show. Paramedics were called when Avalon, a surprise musical guest, suffered from an allergic reaction -- to what is still unknown.

All must have ended well as the unbelievably well preserved 69-year-old eventually took the stage to open the show and sing his 1959 hit, Venus.

And, in the funny-you-should-mention-Frankie-Avalon category, Avalon will be performing at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on June 28, 2009. (See Calendar of Events)
