    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Mike Douglas, who drew on his affable personality and singing talent during 21 years as a talk show host, died Friday on his 81st birthday, his wife said.

    DouglasÂ’ afternoon show, which aired from 1961 to 1982, featured his ballad and big-band singing style, other musicians, comedians, sports figures and political personalities, including seven former, sitting or future presidents.

    Zeta-Jones' husband is Michael Douglas. The celebrity who has died is Mike Douglas. I remember watching his afternoon talk show in the afternoons when I was a teenager.

    I remember that, too. As different as they were, they really seemed to respect each other.

    I really liked Mike. He seemed like such a nice guy. I would watch him after school and feel grown-up!:)
