Sepetmber 22, 2009 - Hoolywoodland Hospital sources have confirmed that "D List" celebrity Babu has contracted the H1N1 flu virus, also known as the swine flu. Doctors, at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills, released a statement to the media this morning. In the statement, doctors said Babu came into the emergency room on Sunday evening complaining of flu like symptoms. He was given the screening for H1N1 and it came back positive. Babu was then admitted to the hospital.
Babu played the clumsy and portly genie on the early 70's television show Jeannie. The role left him type cast and he found it very hard to find serious work. He then made the rounds on several television games shows throughout the 70's and made quite a splash with his flamboyantly gay mannerisms. He had several relationships with other popular gay stars of the time including Mildew Wolf from the Laff-A-Lympics, Popeye, and Brainy Smurf.
Long time friend Snagglepuss went to visit Babu on Monday and said he was in good spirits but pretty weak. Babu did show some encouraging signs today with a comedic, light hearted moment. When the nurse brought him his lunch he said, "Yapple Dapple. You keep feeding me this and your gonna kill me." Which made the nurse and his visitors burst into laughter.
Mildew Wolf was asked to comment on his ex-lovers condition and he released the following statement: "I'm not totally shocked that Babu came down with this flu. He doesn't take very good care of himself. His diet consists entirely of beef wieners. And he doesn't eat well either...(insert Paul Lynde laugh)."
