15What Ever Happened To Steve From Blue's Clues?
Even before Steve Burns, the host of Blue's Clues, left the show in 2001, rumors started flying about his passing away - that's how it all started at least. Some claimed he passed away, others claimed that police arrested him for possession charges. Burns even appeared on The Rosie O'Donnell Show in
the late '90s to put an end to the rumors. When Burns left the show for good, the rumors continued.
The cause of the rumors likely stems from Burns' guest appearance on Law and Order. In the episode, he played a kid who police believed was under the influence. He later passed away in police custody. The truth is, Burns left Blues Clues because he was losing his hair. In an interview on Nick Jr., Burns said "I refused to lose my hair on a kid's TV show. … *And it was happening ... fast."
