Sad-Tini

Who knows if the reports are true, but within the past hour, TMZ and other news sources have reported that Brittany Murphy, 32, is dead. From drugs cardiac arrest. Between her and Lohan and a few other emaciated starlets with skin clinging to bones and eyes bugging out of their once-pretty faces, news like this doesn’t come as a complete shock, but it’s a shock nonetheless. Because, what a damn shame. Too young. Potential snuffed. Etc. I feel sorry for their moms. (Well, maybe not Dina.)

Remember Brittany in “Clueless?” And “Drop Dead Gorgeous?” So funny. And somehow  normal and healthier than later Brittany appearances. An interview a few years ago on “Ellen” also pops into my mind, when she bantered with the host re: how young she began talking as a baby. It was some absurd age at which no child ever really learns to talk. Regardless of whether it was true, the interview made her seem relatable and down-to-earth as she spoke of her mother and grandmother and her childhood. At that young age, she was probably easily imagined as an actress, a star, when she grew up. Famous. But dead? Sigh. I can’t think of a bigger waste.

Well, if it’s not a hoax, rest in peace, Brittany Murphy. I’ll always think of you clunking your head on the overhead light in “Clueless” and then, “rollin’ with the homeys…”

It was a complete and utter shock to read that she had died, I actually gasped out loud! Such a shame, she was a lovely creature.

How sad. I remember watching Clueless repeatedly with another bartender in this joint. And by repeatedly I mean to the point of numbing my brain. But I love said barmaid and liked the movie (and Brittany) so all was good.

PS: Look at us gaining international readers! I think they must be really touched by her death. And want us to buy pills cheap.

I loved Clueless and always thought Brittany Murphy was a good person, even through the scary skinny phases.
