Earlier this week PopEater made an interesting observation – celebs seem to die in threes. Last summer it was Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Ed McMahon. In December it was Brittany Murphy, Casey Johnson and Corey Haim (though he technically died a few months later).

And let’s not forget about the horror that was January of ’08, when Heath Ledger, Brad Renfro and Suzanne Pleshette all passed away within a WEEK of one another.

Fast forward to today, which is when we discovered that Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan died in the wee hours of the morning at the age of 76. So, first it was Gary Coleman (May 28), then it was Dennis Hopper (May 29), then Rue (June 3).

    I feel like within the past 2 years, celebrities have been dying left and right. And right after one another, real quickly too!

    Um…what about Lena Horne, Gary Coleman, Corey Haim, Dixie Carter, Dennis Hopper…a lot more than three celebrities died this year, or are these 3 the only ones we’re focusing on for some reason?

    @brandilicious, try reading the article before commenting. Coleman, Haim and Hopper were all mentioned.
