Hollywood yard sale

Last Sunday blogger Pamela went to the Hollywood Hills to check out a yard sale. She was looking for the advertised Haitian art — what she found was Howard Hessman.

She didn't pay much attention to the Saarenin-like dining room set as she tried to get a shot of WKRP's Dr. Johnny Fever in his garage. She says that he looked tired — but wasn't a little world-weariness combined with a 70s-drug potpourri hangover Johnny Fever's schtick? We think the seemingly-tired Hessman may have been, in fact, reprising his TV role.

Pamela did manage to get a quite a few (if blurry) shots of the stuff the Hessmans were unloading, and she got the estate sale story, too. Howard and his wife are moving to the South of France, and have their Hollywood Hills home on the market for a tidy $3.75 mil.

We realize that to some of you, he's Mr. Moore from "Head of the Class," but that show gave us the heebie-jeebies. Give us a tired, stoned DJ any day. Even in French.
