Actress Brittany Murphy, Dead at 32 of Cardiac Arrest **UPDATE** Found in Shower by Her Mother**

Brittany Murphy, dead at 32

Wow. Brittany Murphy was DOA **early this morning** (latest reports) en route to Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles after going into full cardiac arrest.

The troubled actress was rumored to have been fired from a film recently due to bad behavior onset in Puerto Rico. She was also the topic of suspected drug abuse and a supposed eating disorder. 

Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack was rushed to the ER three weeks ago after a possible "asthma-related" episode.


"UPDATE 3:11 PM ET -- Sources tell TMZ Brittany Murphy's mom discovered her unconscious in the shower. We're told when paramedics arrived, they quickly determined Murphy was in full cardiac arrest and immediately administered CPR. They continued CPR in route to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center -- several miles away -- and Murphy was unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

We're told the LA County Coroner's is picking up Murphy's body from Cedars later today and will launch an investigation."

Brittany co-starred in one of my favorite films, "Girl Interrupted".

via TMZ:

Such a sad story! My thoughts go out to her family, friends, and fans. 32 is too young for anyone. :(
