Vanilla Ice Failed To Get In Touch With Dying Tammy Faye

Rapper VANILLA ICE is upset he didn't get a chance to speak with televangelist pal TAMMY FAYE MESSNER before she died on Friday (20Jul07). The Ice Ice Baby hitmaker befriended the beloved Christian when they were cast together on reality TV show The Surreal Life and he was devastated when he saw a frail Messner talking about her cancer battle on CNN show Larry King Live on Thursday (19Jul07). He immediately picked up the phone and attempted to reach the ailing 65-year-old - to offer her his support and prayers. The rapper says, "I got a hold of her manager; I was gonna go see her." Vanilla Ice admits he was very impressed with his friend's final TV interview: "When you're looking at death and you can be that strong, that's really something to admire."
