James Bond and That 70’s Show star Tanya Roberts is still alive but is still hospitalized. Her publicist mistakenly issued a statement about her death on Monday.
According to TMZ, her representative who falsely and unknowingly reported the information Sunday, had received the information from Tanya’s partner Lance.
We just spoke with Lance, Tanya’s long-term partner. He tells us he went to the hospital Sunday after getting a call from doctors saying Tanya was fading fast, and it was going to end in her death. He went to the hospital, and as he sat in her room she opened her eyes and tried to grab on to him, but her eyes closed and she “faded.” He said he was devastated and walked out of the room and then the hospital and never spoke with medical staff.Via TMZ
Apparently Robert’s had been rushed to the hospital after collapsing on Christmas Eve then placed on a ventilator.
If this doesn’t sound even just a little off, apparently he was filming an interview with Inside Edition when he was told the news.
Roberts’s most notable movie role is in the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill. More recently, she’s best known for playing Donna Pinciotti’s mom, Midge, on That 70’s Show from 1998 to 2004. She also starred in the fifth and final season of Charlie’s Angeles with other TV credits including The Love Boat, Silk Stalkings, Fantasy Island, The Blues Brothers Animated Series and Barbershop.
