MSNBC's gossip reporter, Courtney Hazlett, who writes "The Scoop" column for MSNBC.com and regularly appears on air, has made the tackiest statement of the year just moments after Heath Ledger's death.
Hazlett remarked, "In a lot of ways, this reminds me — we've almost had a dress rehearsal for this with Owen Wilson."
Wilson attempted suicide last summer, and MSNBC reported early after the news broke that pills were strewn around the bedroom where he was found.
