It was rumored Reba McEntire had died. She went to her Facebook page to assure fans, she was alive and kicking. But there are a number of stars who are surprisingly still alive. The clock is ticking and it’s always amazing when some celebrities die young, while others somehow seem to cheat death. Check out our top 14 stars who are surprisingly still kicking.
How this guy is still alive is beyond me. With all the drugs and alcohol Keith Richards has consumed over the years while with The Rolling Stones, he’s cheated death for years.
Charlie Sheen‘s iconic meltdown was the media focus for awhile. Charlie’s partying ways got him kicked off the hit show ‘Two and a Half Men.’ It did lead to a stand up tour, that received mixed reviews. Charlie is working on a new show.

Lindsay Lohan has seen the inside of a court room more than OJ Simpson. She’s been in a jail, in rehab, on house arrest and forced to do community service at the morgue. But has she been rehabilitated? Rumors are she was seen drunk at a party just this past weekend. Her days may be numbered if she doesn’t learn to stay clean.
Gary Busey has to be the most colorful person in Hollywood. He’s cheated death after a serious accident. But I think he banged his head pretty hard in the crash. Have you ever listened to this guy? You can’t understand a word he’s saying. God knows how much alcohol and drugs have been went into that body. A new son may have him rethinking his bad boy ways.
Courtney Love is one hot mess. She’s the widow of Curt Kobain from Nirvana who killed himself in 1994. Love’s trouble with drugs began early. She overdosed at 19 and was saved by doctors. Later in life she struggled with drug, was arrested and even bared her chest on David Letterman. She’s since said she’s clean and sober. Love made a statement last year that she didn’t live that way anymore. We can only hope.
Abe Vigoda will be 91 later this month. His death has been reported several times and there was even a website created just to let people know Abe was alive. I think he’s just as surprised as the rest of us, he’s still kicking.
Jerry Lewis has had numerous health problems over the years, including prostate cancer, Type 1 diabetes, pulmonary fibrosis and has had at least two heart attacks. Lewis was the host of the MDA Telethon for years, but last year he was not asked to return. How many days does he have left?
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Zsa Zsa Gabor will turn 95 on February 6th, if she lives that long. She’s been partially paralyzed and wheelchair bound since a car crash in 2002. Zsa Zsa suffered strokes in 2005 and 2007. Just last year her right leg was amputated above the knee to save her life due to an infection. She’s been in and out of the hospital a number of times. It’ll be a sad day when she finally passes.
Mohammad Ali, one of the greatest boxers in history recently turned 70. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1984, a disease from severe head trauma. Despite his disability, Ali remains a beloved public figure. Lets hope he’s around for years to come.
95 and still alive and kicking. Kirk Douglas, father to Michael Douglas, suffered a severe stroke in 1996, partially impairing his ability to speak. He may have aged, but his heart is still young. He blogs on his MySpace page, making him the oldest celebrity blogger.
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. has had his own issues with drugs. He made his screen debut in 1970, at the age of five. That may explain why he’s been arrested several times over the years on drug charges. It’s never easy for a kid to grow up in the spotlight. Remember Corey Haim and River Pheonix? Lets hope Downey doesn’t go down the same path.
Nick Nolte has the greatest celebrity mug shot of all time. It comes from a drunk driving arrest. Not his first one. He’s been to rehab, but did it take? Let hope so he doesn’t kill someone else on the road.
