George Takei - Takei Battled Bedbug Problem

Actor GEORGE TAKEI was recently forced to call in the exterminators after his New York apartment became infested with bedbugs.
The former Star Trek star reveals he and his partner Brad Altman were "eaten alive" by the tiny parasites earlier this month (Dec10), prompting the couple to seek professional help to fumigate their home.
He tells radio DJ Howard Stern, "We were (in New York) last month and nothing happened, and then this month, I've been eaten alive."
And Takei is convinced they picked up the bugs during a trip to the theatre: "Brad and I go to the theatre a lot, and I think they must have been in the seats. There's no other way we could have gotten them."
