When you're no longer in the absolute prime of your career, it can be disheartening to lose a hardcore fan.

That's the only reason we can think of that several specific stars haven't tweeted their thoughts on the death of Osama Bin Laden, which every other celebrity has seen fit to do.

If we are to believe Kola Boof, the woman who describes herself as Bin Laden's former sex slave -- and why shouldn't we? -- Bin Laden was a fanatic about four things besides slaughtering innocent people: Whitney Houston, The Wonder Years, Miami Vice and MacGyver.

So how are the people of whom he was such a big fan reacting? Let's look.

Fred Savage What does he get excited about recently on his Twitter feed? Not Osama. We guess he still needs someone buying the DVDs.

Just locked picture on the pilot. Treating myself to a N'espresso machine to celebrate...hellooo Bed Bath and Beyond!

Whitney Houston Bin Laden was obsessed with Whitney Houston, according to boof, to the point where he talked about sending someone to America to kill Bobby Brown.

Houston is typically disorganized and seems to have dropped her Twitter account, but Bobby Brown has one. No comment on his putative killer, but his most recent tweet less one does concern important world events:

Let's go Celtics!!!

Don Johnson Miami Vice's star seems to have no Twitter presence. But Don Johnson of Memphis does, and he offers this take on things via a RT:

CNN: Detainees gave us intel on OBL couriers. Utterly irresponsible to ever suggest Gitmo be closed.

Richard Dean Anderson The only person to have both Osama Bin Laden and The Simpsons' Selma & Patty fawning over him, the MacGyver star's Twitter account is, also, silent on the death of one of his biggest fans.

But that's not because he has no interest in history. His most recent tweet, from March 18:

Dad just got back from New York working on a special for the History Channel; "101 Gadgets that Changed the World"
