Tanya Roberts has officially died. According to the 65-year-old’s rep, she succumbed to a urinary tract infection that spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then blood stream late Monday night.
As we told you before, she was incorrectly reported as passed by her partner, Lance O’Brien over the weekend. Then we all found out that she wasn’t actually gone – when the hospital informed O’Brien in a phone call during a live TV interview.
So where did thing go wrong? Lance went to see Tanya Sunday night and she was unresponsive on a ventilator. When he told her he was there, she sat up and opened her eyes. He thought she was responding, but the hospital staff chalked it up to a reflex action. When she checked out shortly after, he was beside himself so he left.
- Here’s where things got crazy. Tanya’s rep, Mike Pinge, picked Lance up at the hospital and asked what happened. “I just said goodbye to Tanya,” he told Mike. Lance went home and fell asleep only to be awakened to calls about her passing.
- Now that the Bond girl and “Charlie’s Angel” star is officially gone, the family is asking for donations to be made in her name to the ASPCA since she was an animal lover. They also said that an online memorial for her would be announced soon.
