Celebrity B-List Mourns Reagan

I took some screen grabs from C-Span of various B-list celebrities attending Reagan's memorial service in Simi Valley. Are they glum because they've lost a dear friend, or because they haven't been on camera since Reagan was President?

So far I've got:

Wow, this is sort of like live-blogging the 1987 Emmys.

If you look in the directory of photos, you will see other pics of people who I think are famous, but I can't identify them. (Post a comment if you know who they are.)

ps. Man, the sun must be awfully bright! Good thing they handed out sun-blocking pamphlets to everyone. They came in very handy.

ps2. Did you hear that old South African pastor do his imitation of Margaret Thatcher right before they gave Nancy the flag? Everyone looked aghast...including Arnie. Note to pastor: don't try to jumpstart your comedy career at one of the most watched funerals in history. Just because Reagan was funny, it doesn't mean you are.

No idea who any of the unknowns are, but thanks for the collection of screen captures, as this has got to be one of the most fascinating assemblages of has-beens ever! All of the old guys with surgically-enhanced arm candy...and I wonder where ol' Merv and Johnny Mathis stashed their, ahem..."dates" for the funeral?

Oh, Tom Selleck's grim date looks to be Jillie Mack (sp?,) his wife and former dancer in "Cats."

Pretty sure that 06 is former Los Angeles Mayor and one-time candidate for Governor of CA, Richard Riordan

You wouldn't know an a-list actor if they bit you in the ass. Merve is not a b-list actor. Rooney is a retired a-list. Wayne Newton pulls in more cash than most a-list actors and he is a singer entertainer.

Every day, a new star is born. I turned my head, blushed, fluttered my hand up to my collarbone prettily, and gulped the last of my champagne. I know when I’ve been beaten.
