Gossip columnist Army Archerd has passed away at the age of 87. He worked for a half-century for Variety.
Archerd broke the story in 1985 of Rock Hudson having AIDS and was a huge turning point of the disease being made more public than before. He would also be a face that most celebs would be welcome with on Oscar night.
You will be missed Mr. Archerd by myself and other celeb reporters and gossip columnists.-Dr.FB
