Jethro’s Girlfriend Commits Suicide

By Wyatt Earp | January 31, 2008

Yeah, that Jethro.

CARSON CITY, Nevada (AP) — The live-in girlfriend of former “Beverly Hillbillies” star Max Baer Jr. apparently shot herself and died several days later, authorities said Wednesday.

Police were still investigating the death of 30-year-old Chere Rhodes, but no foul play is suspected, Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jim Halsey said.

Baer, 70, an entrepreneur who played “Jethro” in the 1960s “Hillbillies” series, summoned authorities to his Lake Tahoe home last Thursday after he found Rhodes with a single gunshot wound to the chest, Halsey said.

“She was conscious on the scene and told [officers] that it was a self-attempted suicide,” Halsey said. “There was a suicide note as well, which substantiated her statement.” (H/TCNN)

Of course she committed suicide; she finally realized she was dating Jethro!

I have a question. How is a 70-year old Max Baer Jr landing 30-year old babes? This broad couldn’t have known him from the sitcom – well, maybe from reruns – and even if she did, couldn’t she have done a little better than Jethro? I am pretty sure Ron “Horshack” Palillo is available . . .
