I’m not sure if you’ve ever noticed, but Corey Feldman has quite an ego. And it may just be me, but it really seems like he makes everything about him every chance he gets.
Like when his friend Corey Haim died. Now, I understand they were close and had a deep connection most of us will never know, but I still got a bad taste in my mouth when Corey Feldman released his statement the day Corey Haim died.
I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived. ~ Corey
Do you see what I see?
Today Corey Haim was laid to rest and Corey Feldman wrote an open letter to his dearly departed friend on his website.
This is for you on the day of your funeral. First off I am so sorry I am not there with you today. By that I mean my physical body is not with your physical body. However you know that my heart is right at your side. You also know the only reason I am truly not there is out of respect for your mother and her wishes to minimize the media attention as much as possible. I want your family to have a calm peaceful day. Hopefully we will not see one shot of the funeral on the news. Just know I am at home today projecting positive energy for you and your passing.
I miss you so much already. When I think of something funny I don’t know who to tell it to. I find myself trying to call you but then remember your not there. I think about the new movies we will soon be doing together and then suddenly realise that the dream is over. I always feared this day would come, and often rehearsed how to face it. But once confronted with the reality of it, it’s so much more painful than I could have ever imagined…

I ask again, do you see what I see? I feel as though it’s all about Feldman more than it is about Haim – and that’s just tacky and wrong.
Maybe I’m just reading into things too much because of my disdain for Corey Feldman and his misplaced ego.
Or maybe I’m totally and completely right.
Have you any opinion on the matter?
