Jessica Hahn–Too Racy for LA Times/Left out of Ron Leavitt’s Obit

Is there a new regime of Puritanism down on Spring Street? Besides bowdlerizing Earl Butz’s obituary and Sam Zell’s use of the vernacular, the LA Times tidies up the obit of Ron Leavitt, the recently departed creator Married with Children, the show everyone used to love to hate on FOX.

Tabloid Baby points out that Jessica Hahn, onetime playmate of televangelist Jim Bakker, had been Leavitt’s constant companion for the last 15 years.

AP/Chicago Tribune:

Leavitt died at his home in Los Angeles, said his fiancee, the model and actress Jessica Hahn.

LAT:

Leavitt died of lung cancer Sunday at his home in Sherman Oaks, said publicist Larry Winokur.

So, is a publicist more respectable, in a family paper, than a fiancee? She’s not even mentioned as a survivor.
