"With sudden news of Brittany
Simon Monjack, Murphy’s husband since 2007, was seen pacing back and forth in front of their home after coming back from the hospital where his wife was pronounced dead at 10:04 AM according to Hollywoodlife.com.
The shaken screenwriter was spotted by a witness at the scene crying and screaming while on the phone that afternoon accompanied by a bodyguard, family, and the county coroner at the house, Hollywoodlife.com reports.
Sharon, Brittany’s mother, who found her unconscious and called the paramedics, remained at the hospital until later in the afternoon, where her daughter’s body still remains.
Hollywoodlife.com also spoke with neighbors at the scene while Brittany was being wheeled out to the ambulance on a stretcher.
Claire Staples, who lives nearby, tells Hollywoodlife.com that, “It was obvious she was already gone by the time they brought her down from the house.”
Although paramedics, who arrived at the West
And while the medical team tried to revive Brittany, a very shaken Simon stayed away from the body, still in his pajamas from the night before, Hollywoodlife.com reports.
As for now, Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the L.A. Count Coroner’s office tells Hollywoodlife.com that he was present at Murphy’s house in the afternoon for a, “general investigation,” into her death."
I need to reiterate the issue of drugs and weight-loss in women. I've fucking been there. To hear that Brittany was found in the shower is totally not shocking. Taking a shower is one of the most difficult chores for someone who is dangerously underweight. I needed a chair when I was in Casa Palmera in order to take a shower...and even then, I couldn't do it every single day. When I got home, Stephen had to stand next to the shower to makes sure I didn't collapse. Add the possibility of drugs in Brittany's system (which has not been determined, only rumored about), it's a lethal combination.
This whole situation makes me sad and angry. At Hollywood. At society. At what we do to ourselves in search of PERFECTION and to TRY TO MAKE OUR DEMONS DISAPPEAR.
Brittany, I hope you find peace now, but I just don't know what happens now.
