[quote=norml90210]I've known Brittany Murphy since I worked with her on Clueless and continued to be acquainted with her over the past several years. She is a lovely young woman, full of grace, kindness and was a ray of sunshine on every movie set or charity event that I've ever encountered with her. I'm deeply saddened and shocked by her death. I'm also angry at the insensitive comments left by some anonymous people accusing her of drug use. Brittany had health issues in the past with diabetes from my understanding, so I would please ask restraint before accusations. I would ask that people be respectful of the family, especially her fantastic mother, Sharon. My prayers go out to Brittany and her loved ones during this horrible tragedy. God bless you Brittany, you are already tremendously loved and missed. Respectfully, Cheryl Shuman Executive Director Beverly Hills NORML90210 http://www.NORML90210.org[/quote]
With all due respect Cheryl,while I don't advocate the insensitive comments,half of Hollywood is addicted to pain meds. In fact, according to reports from the EMS workers that were on the scene,there were many presciption bottles found all over the home. Legally prescibed or not, how many young celebrities have to die tragically before Hollywood recognizes that a problem DOES exist?!
