Is Edie McClurg OK?
Currently residing in Los Angeles, the ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ actor has dementia. Her family claims that the actress is being abused by a man who calls himself a “long-time friend” and has allegedly tried to elope with her outside of California. The accused abuser is identified in records submitted to the Superior Court of California as Michael L. Ramos, who has reportedly been in the Los Angeles home of the 76-year-old actress since 2017, according to a New York Post report.
In 2019, the New York Post was able to receive a report on a neuropsychological evaluation that claimed McClurg, who is in conservatorship, “suffers from a progressive, irreversible neurological illness.” According to the investigation, McClurg had previously been exploited, notably by a married contractor who had worked on her house and then allegedly “proceeded to reside” there under the pretense of being “her boyfriend.” The contractor’s wife is said to have “begun calling the patient and even stalking the patient” as a result, and it was only McClurg’s cousin Angelique Cabral who was able to stop it.
A complaint has also been made regarding the recent incident in which the court was informed that Ramos reportedly “sexually abused” McClurg’s current caretaker. Ramos “has or may be attacking” the actress, according to the actress’ caretaker, and “she may not even know that it is happening to her.” The records state that Ramos and McClurg have “never been involved [in] a romantic connection.”
Since 2017, Ramos has resided at the 76-year-old actress’ Los Angeles home. According to state court records, Ramos is unemployed and doesn’t pay rent or any other bills, but he managed to get into McClurg’s life. Ramos reportedly tried to get her out of California so he could marry her despite the dementia diagnosis. Ramos was told by the judge that he “may not engage into a lawful marriage” with McClurg, and she has since been granted protection. Since the conservatorship was established in 2019, her attorney is allegedly requesting an order to completely remove Ramos from the legal arrangement. However, McClurg’s relatives requested a legal arrangement from the court in 2019 on the grounds that she had been cohabitating with a man who was verbally abusive and allegedly tried to change the title of her land by convincing her to sign documents.
One of McClurg’s best performances is her impersonation of John Ehrlichman in the radio program “Conversation 26.” She has dedicated her entire life to satirical improv comedy, which distinguishes her from other comedians. Her first major film role was Helen in the cult horror classic “Carrie” (1976). Venus Kallikak, a character on the television series “The Kallikaks,” was McClurg’s first recurring part (1977). Additionally, she played a variety of comedic characters on “The Richard Pryor Show” (1977). She has performed live onstage as well as developed characters for TV programs like “The Richard Pryor Show” and “The David Letterman Show.” She has performed comedy and acted in series and movies like “The Golden Girls,” “Valerie,” and “Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie,” as well as singing.
