Attention: One of the Duke boys has died

Dukes of Hazzard Christopher Mayer

Very sad.  I would have been more sad had it been one of the main Duke boys, but still, this is sad.

The Dukes of Hazzard was one of my favorite shows growing up and I always swore I was going to marry Bo when I grew up…well until C.B. Barnes came along in Starman, then I was going to marry him.

Then came Wesley on Star Trek: The Next Generation, I definitely always planned on marrying him.

Well until Beverly Hills 90210 and Dylan came along.

Yeah, I planned on marrying a lot when I was a kid.

Anyway, where was I?  Oh yeah, the Dukes of Hazzard.  Christopher Mayer, the tall, dark, and handsome replacement Duke who played Vance in ’82/’83 while the original Hazzard stars were haggling over their contracts, has passed away.

THR reports that Mayer died July 23 in Sherman Oaks.  He was 57.  I’ve looked around and so far no word has come out about how he died, but his exwife Eileen Davidson (Ashley on “Young and the Restless”) said, “Chip was a troubled soul, but he had a hilarious sense of humor and a big heart.”

Sad.  R.I.P. lesser known Duke Boy.
