    Default Tanya Roberts, 65, Former Charlies's Angels and That 70's Show, Dead(ish)


    Actress Tanya Roberts, who is best known for her role as a Bond girl in "A View to a Kill" and Midge Pinciotti on "That '70s Show," has died. She was 65.
    Officials did not release her cause of death. But it was not due to Covid-19, said her publicist and longtime friend Mike Pingel. "I'm devastated, I've been friends with Tanya for over 20 years," Pingel told CNN. "She was full of energy and we always had a wild time together. She was truly an Angel and I will miss her so much."
    Roberts was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on December 24, after she collapsed at her California home following a morning walk with her dogs, Pingel told CNN. Born Victoria Leigh Blum, Roberts began her career as a model before breaking into films. A 30-year career in movies and TV followed. She had starring roles in the cult favorites "The Beastmaster" and "Sheena: Queen of the Jungle." And she appeared in several well-known TV shows of the time, including "Fantasy Island," "The Love Boat," and one season of "Charlie's Angels" as one of the three principal characters. Then came her most iconic role until that point. In 1985, she played geologist Stacey Sutton in 'A View to a Kill,' opposite Roger Moore in his final outing as 007.
    She then earned a new legion of fans during her turn as Midge, Donna Pinciotti's dimwitted mom, in "That 70s Show." But she suddenly left the sitcom in its fourth season to tend to her now-late husband who had been diagnosed with an illness. (She returned in later seasons as a recurring character.)
    Her last on-screen appearance was in 2005 in the TV series "Barbershop."

    I freaked out for a sec seeing the post title saying she's 55. I knew she was older than me!

    65 is still too young.

    TMZ just reported that she's still alive. Wtf


    Tanya Roberts death has been greatly exaggerated, because her rep now says she's alive, despite the rep not only telling TMZ she died, but sending out a press release with that information.

    TMZ reported Sunday Tanya had died after collapsing at her home on Christmas Eve and being rushed to the hospital and placed on a ventilator.

    The rep had told us she died Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. He told us Tanya's husband had informed him that Tanya had passed.

    We even got a quote from the rep from Tanya's husband, Lance, saying, "As I held her in her last moments, she opened her eyes."

    Now the rep, Mike Pingel, tells TMZ, Lance got a call just after 10 AM Monday from the hospital saying Tanya was still alive. Pingel said Lance truly believed Tanya had died.

    Interestingly, friends of the family also contacted TMZ Sunday saying Lance had called them to inform them of the "That '70s Show" star's death.
