SIRIUS Host Jay Thomas' Mother Dies

Sunday, April 02, 2006

Some questioned the week long, Best of Jay Thomas Shows last week on SIRIUS Stars//102. GSI has been sitting on this story out of respect. It is now posted on

Jay Thomas post this about his mother:
I have been away due to the death of my outrageously (not meaning to be) funny southern belle mother Kathy. She was 91 and had been in an Alzheimer unit in La. for the past three years. Even as the lights were going out, we could still brighten her by announcing that a new "rich" man was in the unit. She danced and partied til all hours until she was 88. We never knew her real age until she was admitted to the home. She never mentioned age and many times introduced my brother Tim as her "brother".

She is the reason that I have a personality and comic timing. She was naieve to the ways of the real world and lived in the bright light of her own local celebrity as a beautiful socialite. In reality, she was classically beautiful with jet black hair, but we weren't rich or members of any social register.

A wig in later life took the place of her greying locks. Her wigs took on a personality of their own. Once, when the grand kids were babies, they pulled them out and pretended they were wild animals they had killed in the forest. Her theatrical horror at the sight of the boys carrying the "carcasses" in on sticks made us howl. She exclaimed, "Oh my gawd, those children are 'haarible', I don't think I've ever seen such evil children". Another time when on a walk with our dog and my 8 year old nephew on the banks of the bayou in New Orleans where we lived, the dog jumped into the water to chase a duck, dragging my mother in with him. Of course, the black wig flew off and drifted away as she was jerked into the muck. She began dog paddling wigless next to our Lab and the squawking ducks. My nephew laughed so hard he could barely hold a stick to help her out. When she got out her wet head made him laugh even more, so she spanked him.

And, finally, after I married a girl from N.J. and announced I was a liberal Democrat she told my sister-in -law that..."that Yankee bitch has turned my precious boy into an asshole". This was reported to me immediately, and when I confronted her she announced that I couldn't believe anything my sister-in-law said because she was a lesbian.

This may not sound like a funny, loving mom to you, but she said these things with such ditziness that it was like dealing with a ten year old.

I'll miss her." - Jay Thomas via

The punctuation of headline (the comma in particular) means that Jay Thomas and his mother have died. You're going to scare the bejeezus out of people with that title.
