William Shatner and George Takei: Grow the Hell Up

By Leonard Nimoy

Bio & Blog

So you guys are mad at each other again. Big news. My inbox is full of septuagenarian whining:

"He didn't invite me to my wedding."

"He didn't show up to my wedding."

I wasn't even invited to the wedding. Didn't bother me. I sent a gift anyway (BTW George, did you get that Netflix subscription?)

Did I ever tell you about that key grip on "In Search Of"? Smelled like lox. Spit when he talked. Needless to say, we didn't get along. You know what I don't do 30 years later?


You guys obviously rub each other the wrong way. Here's my advice. Don't go to couples therapy. Don't go to each other's roasts. Don't snipe at each other in the media. Here's what you do:


You guys have maybe another five years on this planet (I've seen how you eat). You want to spend it griping about the sixties? I don't have time for this. I've got old naked women to photograph. If you two want to fight, leave me out of it. I don't even work with you guys anymore.

Honestly, it's like junior high lasted 60 years.

Chris Doohan wrote on his blog a few years ago that Shatner and his father, James Doohan made up after years of feuding, but at the last minute and the last time they saw each other, William Shatner did a terrible thing to Doohan.

It was the last day of the “Beam me up, Scotty, one last time” convention at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood, when all the original Star Trek Stars were to get up on stage for the last time. Although James was ill, he still had his wits about him and was looking forward to this event.

Chris wrote that it was about 5 minutes before the big event, when he heard Shatner (who was right behind Chris, talking to Nimoy) say “I don’t want to deal with all this Alzheimer’s crap anymore, I’m outta here” (Mr. Doohan had the early stages of the disease).

Well, he left and without even saying goodbye to his old pal (I use that term lightly). The crowd of hundred paid good money to see this final event, but Shatner was gone. It was said by the promoter of the event, Sky Conway, that Shatner was mad because he wanted to go on stage earlier in the day with Neil Armstrong, but he refused (Mr. Armstrong is a bit stage shy). It should be known that Leonard Nimoy left too. There was no comment about that mystery.
