RIP Brittany Murphy

RIP Brittany Murphy

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Actress Brittany Murphy, who died at 32 on Sunday, had been fired from her last film just two weeks ago, and had lost consciousness during shooting on the set of another film that she`d recently completed.

The actress died suddenly on Sunday, reportedly of cardiac arrest. Several years ago, she told a Wrap columnist that she had a heart condition. But warning signs that Murphy was on a dangerous behavioral spiral were visible to those familiar with her life." Sharon Waxman/The Wrap

The death of Brittany Murphy at the tender age of 32 came as a shock to her many fans, hopefully it will serve as a wakeup call to Amy Winehouse, Lindsay Lohan and the numerous other celeb train wrecks.

It may be weeks before we know what caused Murphy`s cardiac arrest, but we already know that in all likelihood she was a drug addict. Wire services have reported that the troubled actress had a large amount of prescription medications in her home when she died.

Murphy was a very talented actress, and her fans won`t remember the quirky beauty for her drug binges, but for her many unforgettable roles in films like Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, 8 Mile and Sin City.

We miss you Brittany, we hope that you have found peace at last.
