.....there was an miscommunication.....husband thought she was dead but hospital informed him today that she is still alive.....she is still in hospital and in dire straits....


Tanya Roberts Is Still Alive, Despite Being Declared Dead

.....Despite earlier reports to the contrary, actress Tanya Roberts did not die on Sunday, according to a new statement obtained by TMZ.

Roberts’ rep Mike Pingel explains that Roberts’ husband Lance was contacted by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday morning to inform him that she is still alive. Lance had believed that Roberts was dead on Sunday night, at which point he passed the news along to Pingel, who confirmed it to the media. Roberts, 65, was hospitalized in Los Angeles after collapsing on Christmas Eve and was placed on a ventilator.

Roberts is known to many as Midge, the mother of Donna Pinciotti (played by Laura Prepon), on That 70’s Show, a woman who was consistently the center of attention to all the young neighborhood guys. She appeared in 81 episodes (1998-2004) throughout the Fox comedy’s eight-season run.

She’s also beloved for her year-long stint on Charlie’s Angels, playing Julie Rogers in Season 5 (1980-1981). Her character helped fellow Angels Kris and Kelly (Cheryl Ladd and Jacyln Smith, respectively) solve crimes until the series’ cancellation in 1981. Her other TV credits include The Love Boat, Silk Stalkings, Fantasy Island, The Blues Brothers Animated Series and Barbershop.

Yep, definitely no problem in LA hospitals right now. Nope. No visitors and they can't even figure out if someone is dead or alive. You would think that there wouldn't be any ambiguity in those conversations.

Right now in L.A. County, one person dies from COVID every ten minutes. Hospitals are so overwhelmed that ambulance crews were instructed today not to transport patients who have little chance of survival. These are not normal times — it is not hard to imagine how a mistake like this could happen.

Latest on local news is one new case every six seconds, and one death every eight minutes....

That could be correct. I tried to find the article where I'd read those statistics and was working from memory.

EDIT: Yeah, I remembered it right - here's the article. Of course, things may have gotten worse since this was written - according to the LAT, the COVID death rate in CA is 44% higher than it was 14 days ago:

Putting all the jokes aside, I'm very glad to hear this news ... and wishing a speedy recovery for her. (I can't seem to find anything that mentions that she's in "dire straits", as Newt says ... the closest I've found is saying that she's in critical condition, which means she could still recover... depending on what it is that she's got.)

The only thing that would make this mistake worse is if the hospital says, "Oh, sorry, yeah she really is dead."

85 dead of COVID in L.A. County yesterday, today looks to be about the same.

What's she's got is an overwhelmed hospital system staffed by exhausted personnel with inadequate resources. Los Angeles is the last place you want to be if you have any sort of exigent medical issue.

Freewheeling here but as I recall California has about the same population as Canada and California has recorded about 10,000 more deaths than the entire of Canada. By the end of this month that figure may triple.

I'm well aware of that, so I'm not sure why you brought it up. It's not like she intended to collapse, or to collapse in another city.

according to the LAT, the COVID death rate in CA is 44% higher than it was 14 days ago


That just reenforces my opinion that it's far too soon to make jokes about people dying of COVID.

It makes me feel the same as someone in a high place of authority saying COVID was nothing to worry about.

People get the flu and they get over it.

Uh huh.

According to the county COVID dashboard, Alameda County to date has 53,714 known cases and 656 deaths.

It also shows some pretty horrific spiking for Dec-Jan.

It also doesn't surprise me that the largest age group of cases is the 18-30yo.

I hope Ms. Roberts pulls through, along with any and everybody else who's afflicted.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Am I misunderstanding? As I’ve read it, she has not been diagnosed with Covid.

They may not have tested her with the initial misinformation about her passing. And there are enough cases around that results may be delayed. So eventually her husband and representative may know more and release that. What exactly she is sick from hasn't been stated yet, and I expect the hospital is in serious CYA mode for having messed up the notification.

Hope she pulls through, she was born just a few months after I was so no teen crush as some have mentioned. She was a decent actor in the shows and films I saw her in, and 65 is too young.

They are saying that the cause of death was a UTI infection that spread to her other organs.

I wonder whether she was holding off on seeing a doctor because of COVID.

I don't think people realize they have a problem . My mom ended up in the hospital 4 years ago because of it . Then had to go back on antibiotics again about 4 months later .
