RIP Simon Monjack: The Brittany Murphy Foundation Loses Another

RIP Simon Monjack, widow to Brittany Murphy. The Los Angeles police department says the death is unexplained. The media will not agree.

See her career in pictures

The Mail:

He said he couldn’t bear the idea of having his wife’s body cut open, and called the coroner relentlessly – but to no avail.

His actions led to widespread internet rumours he was involved in her death, which he angrily denied.

Her death was classified as an accident. The rumours are given another airing.

But with Monjack goes his not all the charitable Brittany Murphy Foundation. It launched to much fanfare:

On Thursday, Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack is hosting a launch party to celebrate the Brittany Murphy Foundation, which is dedicated to arts education for children. (Monjack claims he started the foundation with $1 million of his own money.)

A source tells UsMagazine.com he is suggesting dollar amounts of $1,000 per individual and $10,000 from corporations to attend the event, which takes place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.

Says a source, “Everyone thinks it’s very tacky that he is making it so much about money.”

Monjack has yet to comment.

In Pictures: Harrods Under Al Fayed – Pussy Cat Dolls, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Bra And Stuffed Bears

HARROD’S has been sold by Mohamed al Fayed for £1.5bn to a buyer understood to be the Qatari royal family. Will the shrine to Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed remain in the store? Will Al Fayed now also sell Fulham FC? Will he auction off his collection of vomit ‘n’ cuff shirts? Will Prince Philip use the hallowed urinals (£1 a go) once again? Fayed’s reign at Harrods seemed to be a chance for him to meet famous women and hand them something furry to stroke. On our photo collection, Fayed seemed to have more than passing liking for Jennifer Love Hewitt (11-13), the Pussy Cat Dolls, who all got pet a pussy to pet, Lily Allen (5) and all the girls he’s met before…

You find joy in the simplest pleasures.

Brittany Murphy: Community Acquired Pneumonia Defined Disappoints Rapacious Media

brittanyBRITTANY Murphy has died and the coroner has reported that she died of “community acquired pneumonia,” iron deficiency anemia [sic], and multiple drug intoxication.”

In pictures: Brittany Murphy (1977-2009)

Yep, she died because she wasn’t well. What are the odds? And she could have been saved with a stint in hospital – but opted for self-medicated. And Community Acquired Pneumonia is not a reference to the community of Warner Brothers or Hollywood. It is:

“…a disease in which individuals who have not recently been hospitalized develop an infection of the lungs (pneumonia). CAP is a common illness and can affect people of all ages. CAP often causes problems like difficulty in breathing, fever, chest pains, and a cough. CAP occurs because the areas of the lung which absorb oxygen (alveoli) from the atmosphere become filled with fluid and cannot work effectively.”

The full autopsy report will be released in a couple of weeks.

Brittany Murphy, Simon Monjack, Drugs And Lindsay Lohan: In Pictures

lohan-beachBRITTANY Murphy has died and the papers are filling in the space between news of what drugs were or were not in her system by destroying Simon Monjack, her grieving husband..

BRITTANY Murphy has died and the deckchairs on the Hollywood ship are rearranged to make room for Lindsay Lohan. Thanks to Twitter, we all have a direct conduit to the celebrity mourner. Says Lindsay Lohan:

“My deepest condolences go out to all of Brittany Murphy’s loved ones and may she rest in peace. … She was a great talent w/a beautiful soul xo.”

The part about the soul is mawkish. But Lohan does as expected. Nothing reminds the world that you are alive better than one of your peers dying. So enjoy these self-published pictures of Lohan on the beach.

With Brittany Murphy Dead, Foster Kamer And TMZ Feast On Simon Monjack

murphy-simonBRITTANY Murphy is dead and the media has set out to destroy her. But now with nudge and a big sideways glance, it’s staring to eye her husband, Simon Monjack.

Enjoy this bit of poisonous tittle-tattle from AOL’s corporate gossip site TMZ:

Brittany Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, told hospital staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center he did not want an autopsy performed on his deceased wife, multiple sources tell TMZ.

In pictures: Brittany Murphy (1977-2009)

The grieving husband does not want his wife’s remains to be cut open? What can it mean for the young woman who died of natural causes? Well, we learn that the L.A. County Coroner’s office will perform an autopsy on Murphy. Maybe it’s standard stuff, for insurance purposes?

TMZ has also learned Brittany Murphy’s mother, who found Murphy unconscious in the shower and called 911, told paramedics her daughter had a history of diabetes. We have not been able to confirm if Murphy did indeed have diabetes, and if so, whether it contributed to her death.

Brittany Murphy RIP: In Pictures

BRITTANY Murphy is reported to have died. The talented actress was 32. Her, perhaps, biggest role was as Luanne Platter on Fox’s animated “King of the Hill. Gawker speculates:

To die at such a young age of cardiac arrest could be a sign of either an underlying condition—or like many of the young actors we’ve seen pass away over the last few years—drug use.

The celebrity is not even conformed dead by their family but already the media speculation begins. Sad:
