Pat Robertson knows why Robin Williams committed suicide.

We'll let the televangelist himself explain.

"You see these very popular people in the media who commit suicide, like Robin Williams recently, and you say, ‘What is the deal with him? What happened?"

Well, Pat Robertson??!? Please tell us!

"The god of the heathen are idols, and everything that you seek in life can ruin you unless that something and somebody is God himself,” Robertson said on The 700 Club last night, concluding:

"You won’t want to commit suicide after you have come to Him."

Robin Williams. What a concept.

This is how Billy Crystal concluded a funny, moving tribute to his very good friend Robin Williams, who took his own life two weeks ago yesterday.

The comedian and actor took to the stage toward the end of last night's Emmy Awards and shared personal stories about Williams, from the time he pretended to be a Russian baseball fan to the way Williams would interact with Crystal's Jewish relatives.

"As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine – supportive, protective, loving," Crystal said. "It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he is so present in our lives. He was the brightest star in our comic galaxy."

Crystal and Williams (along with Whoopi Goldberg) were longtime co-hosts on HBO's Comic Relief specials, which benefitted the homeless. They also starred together in the 1997 film Fathers' Day.

For the first time since Robin Williams committed suicide last Monday, David Letterman hosted a new edition of The Late Show.

And the comedian took a full 10 minutes of air time to pay tribute to his late friend, who Letterman had known for 38 years at the time of Robin's death.

"He was on our show, this show and the old show, a total of nearly 50 times," Letterman said. "Two things would happen because Robin was on the program. One, I didn't have to do anything. All I had to do was sit here and watch the machine.

"Two, people would watch! If they knew Robin was on the show, the viewership would go up because they wanted to see Robin. Believe me, that wasn't just true of television, I believe that was true of the kind of guy he was. People were drawn to him because of this electricity."

Letterman also included a montage of clips from Williams' appearance on his program and choked up after they aired, telling the audience:

"Beyond being a very talented man, and a good friend, and a gentleman, I'm sorry, like everybody else, I had no idea that the man was in pain, that the man was suffering. What a guy, Robin Williams."

In the wake of his shocking death, a fan made this beautiful Robin Williams tribute video.

Prior to his death, however, Williams was the one who filmed a special video, one that takes on extra sad and chilling meaning considering the actor's suicide.

The footage is dedicated to Vivian Waller, a 21-year old New Zealand resident who is suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer.

After being diagnosed, Waller put meeting Williams on her bucket list, a wish that made it way across the globe to the star - and which resulted in Williams filming a message for this terminally-ill fan.

Watch the comedian channel Matthew McConaughey in making Waller's dream come true:

Late last week, Robin's wife said her husband had started to suffer from Parkinson's Disease at the time of his death, though she did not directly link his suicide to that illness.

When Robin Williams died unexpectedly last week, the outpouring of emotion from the beloved actor's millions of fans was unlike anything the Internet has seen in recent years.

Mork (Mork & Mindy)
The role that started it all. Robin Williams starred as an alien on the late 1970s sitcom Mork & Mindy.

Horrible as it was to learn that the world had lost such a kind and gifted man, the near universal reverence for Williams made for a welcome silver lining.

The flood of fond memories from admirers of all ages was a refreshing change from the bitter divisiveness that usually characterizes online comment boards. 

So naturally, the folks at the Westboro Baptist Church took one look at all this genuine affection and figured out a way to make it all about hate.

Yes, the horrible bigots who celebrated the death of Cory Monteith and encouraged his girlfriend Lea Michele to kill herself are up to their old tricks.

The picket-happy fundamentalists announced over the weekend that they plan to protest Williams' funeral as a result of his portrayal of a gay man in the 1996 film The Birdcage.

His films, his stand-up routines and his talk show appearances will all live forever.

And now Robin Williams will also live forever in the world of video games. In the world of World of Warcraft, to be specific.

Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind this insanely popular franchise, announced on Thursday that a Williams character will be added to an upcoming version of its game.

“It will most likely be a character inspired by him or some of his favorite roles of the past,” said lead game designer Ion Hazzikostas.

The move comes days after Williams killed himself via hanging at the age of 63.
