Brittany Murphy, featured on this site twice, died today from an episode of cardiac arrest. She was 32 years old.

For at least the past six years, she seemed to struggle with body image and there were serious rumors of her abusing all sorts of drugs ranging from meth to heroin. Lindsay Lohan, who suffers from the same issues as Brittany, had better take notes, because she will be next if she does not stop her self destruction.

So far, the coroner is saying Brittany died of natural causes and that they are investigating, but I don’t believe the causes were natural. Brittany was found in the shower by her mother and paramedics are saying that there was a great deal of vomit found near Brittany. It all sounds like an overdose to me.

R.I.P. Brittany.

Comment by Marusya — December 20, 2009 at 11:09 pm

P.S. Please don’t say “it was because of plastic surgery”,ok? It’s a whole other level of problems, unrelated to it.

Comment by Suzy0101 — December 21, 2009 at 4:08 am

Dang, I feel bad for her. She was such a cute little thing, but the alterations she did over the years to her body, from the poofy lips to the anorexia….kind of makes me think perhaps she wasn’t all that happy. That’s really too bad, poor thing.

Comment by crystal bones — December 21, 2009 at 4:48 am

I am very sorry for this beautiful person. But her death is suspicious. She was too young and vibrant.
The pressures of show business are very high and demand too much of some people.

Comment by MG — December 21, 2009 at 6:46 am

This is so sad. At first I thought it was anorexia. But, I never considered drugs. She was so young to be caught up in all of that,

Comment by Bunnie — December 21, 2009 at 7:37 am

My gut says drugs have to be involved, whether prescription or illicit I am not sure. But in the series of photos she looks very gaunt in the last one compared to the others. Maybe diabetes did play a role?

Comment by le — December 21, 2009 at 7:55 am

this is very tragic..it’s always shocking to see a promising young talents pass away. Hollywood puts more pressure on women than men.. women not only have to be just talented, they have to look perfect. That is just ridiculous..

Comment by Lola Granola — December 21, 2009 at 8:46 am

I saw a full-length pic taken recently of her and was shocked by how thin she looked. If she’s had cosmetic work done as well, as it appears she has, she may well have been suffering from a dangerous combination of drug dependency and anorexia. That could easily have led to her death. A damn shame, too, because she was very good in “Girl, Interrupted”.

Comment by Laurie — December 21, 2009 at 8:46 am

The news was reporting she was a diabetic. Poor thing.

Comment by Louise Glass — December 21, 2009 at 9:04 am

Very sad. It reminds me of Karen Carpenter. She had anerexia for years and her heart gave out also. I am sure they’ll do an autopsy and we’ll know if she had drugs and how much in her system that could of contributed ot the heart failure. I loved her in Clueless and was shocked when I saw how anerexic she was in a movie soon afer. Also the fish lips and the shaved down nose on top of the skinny body. It wasn’t her anymore. I If she never made a movie she might be alive today. Hollywood stinks. Even in the early forties Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney were given drugs to lose weight.

Comment by Shelly — December 21, 2009 at 9:04 am

I read something this morning that she had been suffering from flu-like symptoms for the last few days and had told her mother yesterday morning that she felt extremely ill. She was gorgeous before she started with the facial adjustments. So sad to be taken so early. She’s at peace now.

Comment by Sasha — December 21, 2009 at 9:35 am

This is sad. Diabetics have to take extremely good care of themselves and are normally not that thin, aqnother exception being Mary Tyler Moore. A combo of drugs, diabetes, and possibly H1N1 may have done this lady in. Her surgical results seemed to fluctuate; by 2009 her lips deflated and the undereye bag surgery did not seem effective. Gary Sinise also has an undereye issue that surgery cannot seem to cure….the bags return. The media will never tell us the truth and a spin will be over the whole affair. BTW if I remember, in ‘Girl, Interrrupted’, didn’t she die in the shower, hanged herself after Jolie really put her down? This has been a banner year for celebrity disaster.

Comment by Sasha — December 21, 2009 at 9:41 am

From 2008 pic to 2009 pic, big change in weight as seen by the facial changes. Her neck was showing those ‘cord’s on either side of the trachea. Usually this is seen in the elderly or seriously underweight women.

Comment by Q — December 21, 2009 at 10:42 am

To the person who said don’t blame plastic surgery for her death– I say why not consider it a contributing factor? According to police reports there were a *LOT* of prescription drugs found in her home. Some of those medications could be related to her having had plastic surgery (I think that she had something done to her chin this year, it doesn’t seem to jut out as much in recent pics compared to how it looked in the past)

Comment by Anais — December 21, 2009 at 10:52 am

Authorities ordered an autopsy, which her husband opposed. That may give answers in the tragic early death of this talented young woman. Very sad. My sympathies are with her family.

Comment by deb — December 21, 2009 at 12:12 pm

She had lost so much weight that it leads one to think anorexia or drug problems got a hold on her. I have known two women personally die from heart attacks related to anorexia. Such a shame

Comment by LisaG — December 21, 2009 at 1:54 pm

This is sad. I really lked her. She made so many great movies, sort of off the beaten path type, which we love. My husband and I send our prayers and condolences to her and her family.

RIP Brittany, gone to soon, but never to be forgotten.

Comment by mamallama — December 21, 2009 at 2:10 pm

This is so sad. Anytime someone 32 years old dies, it is a tragedy. Especially in Brittany’s case, because, whatever her problems were, she still had a whole lifetime ahead of her to work them out and get better. I have to agree with the others, it was probably a confluence of a bunch of factors. Diabetes plus an eating disorder could certainly have caused heart problems.
Just as a plug, I am not diabetic but I worked in hospitals for 7 years and a lot of people don’t realize just how devastating diabetes is. Even with insulin and good self-care, it still wreaks havoc on everything from the heart to the nervous system to the eyes. It is a tough disease to live with–and way too many people who have it die way too early. I really hope a cure is found soon.

Comment by Frau Blucher — December 21, 2009 at 2:35 pm

very very sad…i always got the impression that she was extremely fragile emotionally, very troubled…almost like her character in Girl Iinterrupted. Like she was made of glass and could shatter any second. She looked emaciated in recent months; it was almost certainly drugs or anorexia. I didn’t know about her diabetes but obviously she wasn’t taking care of that. My guess is that her troubles went way back. Poor thing.

Comment by Sammy G. — December 21, 2009 at 3:07 pm

You’re really sick posting this article on your “site.” Her death is a tragedy and you focus on her “changing face.” She may have had plastic surgery, but she was a hell of a lot nicer of a person than you are.

Comment by leo — December 21, 2009 at 3:38 pm

I do think it’s relevant to show her “changing face” here because it’s all part and parcel of the bigger issue which is women’s self-image and the physical damage they do to make themselves look “better”. I would bet the house that her underlying”illness was anorexia, and her recent photo in People was just shocking (where she declares that she must have a hollow leg because she “loves food”.) With an already weakened heart from the anorexia,the flu or any illness where you loose electrolytes and potassium can kill quickly. I think it serves a greater good to make this story public to hopefully help someone in the future who may otherwise follow this path.

Comment by Farell — December 21, 2009 at 4:27 pm

yeah well personally I think she knew her career would never reach the heights of Tara Reid’s no matter how much plastic surgery she had or how thin she got. She just wanted to go out in 2009 with the likes of Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, MJ, Natasha Richardson, etc. so she could be in the slide show at the Oscars. We all know it will be the closest she’ll ever get to a golden statuette.

Comment by Jake — December 21, 2009 at 6:23 pm

Oh no! Lookout awfulplasticsurgery is predicting that anyone who appears on this site twice will surely die…..yeah right! comparing Britanny Murphy to Lindsay Lohan does not make sense because no one will miss Lindsay!

Comment by Q — December 21, 2009 at 7:33 pm

Jake, you’re an idiot. Awfulplasticsurgery didn’t say that appearing on the site twice=death, they made a simple statement that they had featured her on the site twice. As for comparing Brittany Murphy to Lindsay Lohan, it makes perfect sense, because both appear to have plenty of drug related issues and also body issues.

Comment by Gina Golala — December 21, 2009 at 8:56 pm

She deserve it! A reward for her exemplary lifestyle. Take more drugs! Stupid bitch!

Comment by Lola Granola — December 21, 2009 at 9:02 pm

What’s no joke is that badly done plastic surgery–or too much of it–can lead to painkiller addiction. Michael Jackson apparently suffered from the same thing. People forget too easily that cosmetic surgery isn’t a cosmetic–it’s SURGERY.

Comment by Sasha — December 21, 2009 at 9:22 pm

No one will miss you either, Jake, if you choose to stop blogging here.

Comment by Dy — December 21, 2009 at 9:38 pm

This feels as if this site is exploiting her death. You don’t know what happened, but you’re going to speculate and then post awkward pictures from her past on here? That’s not honoring her memory at all. Obviously this isn’t a cry out to reach Lindsey Lohan, because if she did read these posts, she wouldn’t listen to a total stranger giving her advice. This is really low. I’ve lost some respect for you guys. Let’s give her family some solace before you start throwing rumors around.

Comment by -_- — December 21, 2009 at 10:21 pm

“women not only have to be just talented”
Megan Fox.

Poor girl. :( Everyone in the Hollywood should have one person with them not afraid to say how things are.

Comment by Q — December 21, 2009 at 11:06 pm

So it’s only now, with Brittany Murphy’s death posted on here that you feel offended, Dy? Not with all the other plastic surgery victims whose deaths were posted on here, only with Brittany Murphy’s? Your selective offense is rather touching.

Comment by Christine — December 21, 2009 at 11:42 pm

What a beautiful person, inside and out. I’m so very sad to know she is gone. Rest in peace, dear Brittany Murphy.

Comment by Lissa — December 22, 2009 at 12:30 am

I completely agree with Dy. This is disgusting and completely offensive. Despite the fact that everyone pokes fun at celebrities these days and that the paparazzi make it feel as if nothing’s off limits anymore, there is something important about paying respects to someone. She was a real person who just lost her life, and the way you’ve addressed this is disrespectful. I haven’t seen the other plastic surgery victims whose deaths were posted on this site, as Q references, but I would feel the same for them too. Even Perez Hilton didn’t stoop this low.

Comment by Sasha — December 22, 2009 at 10:24 am

FARRELL’S comment is the lowest stooping yet. Misogynist?

Comment by matt — December 22, 2009 at 11:01 am

I at once thought anorexia. Just look at her over the years. Sad to seem this happen, but if that was the cause of death, it may give a wake up call to the others starving themselve.

Comment by Q — December 22, 2009 at 12:06 pm

No it won’t. It hasn’t in the decades we’ve had people die from causes related to anorexia, such as Karen Carpenter. Anorexics have their own support system, their own body delusions that they’re too fat or not pretty enough, and I doubt that you’ll have people inspired by Brittany Murphy’s death… so many of them can rationalize it away as drug abuse due to the number of prescription medications found in her room.

And again, to those who are offended only by this posting of a star’s death when there have been other plastic surgery victims whose deaths have been noted on here– good job on selectively being offended.

Comment by KLG — December 22, 2009 at 12:39 pm

The thing is, it is more important to respect the feelings of someone who has them. The dead don’t. If you truly care about someone, respect them in life, don’t jump on some morally superior bandwagon just because someone passes. This is a site about BAD PLASTIC SURGERY, not a place to play kiss ass. It’s very sad that a young person’s life is over, but no sadder than if an unknown name left this mortal coil. This is a site catering to a particular interest that pictures of BM fulfilled to the fullest, a formerly pretty kid with a hack job done on her, and like with anything, if you don’t approve of the content, or simply don’t like it, go elsewhere for your entertainment. And this is supposed to be entertainment.

Comment by Sasha — December 22, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Well said KLG

Comment by Q — December 22, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Hear hear, KLG, said better than I could have said it

Comment by Sasha — December 22, 2009 at 8:41 pm

I’d hate to have the initials ‘BM’…..

Comment by Dy — December 22, 2009 at 9:00 pm

Q, you’re being an idiot.

1. You have no idea what I have or have not seen on this site as far as “plastic surgery victims”. I think any well known actress who just past away should have some common courtesy given to her mourning loved ones.

2. Is this even a case of death caused by plastic surgery? Do the peole who run this site even know that? Has it been onfirmed? No. So why even post unflattering pictures of the actress? No, she doesn’t care, but do you think her family may? If you don’t want to have respect for the dead, then please have respect for their loved ones who are still here.

KLG, you think it’s entertainment to make fun of people who have just died? You probably get a big kick out of the Darwin awards too, don’t you?

It’s sad when wanting some respect shown to someone who just passed away is considered to be j”umping on morally superior bandwagon.”

I’ve always liked Brittany Murphy. She was such a cutie pie, and I enjoyed her movies. So, yes, I did respect her while she was living, as well.

Comment by Lissa — December 22, 2009 at 9:00 pm

So, to sum up, trashing and gossiping about someone that just passed away only a day prior is what you consider entertainment. Well said indeed.

Comment by Q — December 22, 2009 at 9:18 pm

Dy, you’re the one being an idiot. You’re the same type of person who would post a video on YouTube and then demand that nobody ever post a negative comment about it, even if it was intended to offer constructive criticism, because “you should be positive and not hatin!” You would not care about Brittany Murphy if she was not famous, and there are thousands of females and males even a year who die similarly to her.. where’s the care and concern about them?

Displaying the plastic surgery that she had on here and saying that she died is disrespectful? Noting that she had obvious issues with her body in the last few years prior to her death, which was clearly evidenced by her duck lips that she obviously thought looked good, or the skeletal figure she obviously thought wasn’t thin enough, is somehow wrong? Noting that she had a crapload of prescription medications, some of which probably came about as a result of her plastic surgeries, and also noting that she died of a heart related condition is bad? Congratulations on basically saying that one person is better than another just because they starred in some light fluff movies (and yes, I’m including 8 Mile in this)

BTW, did you have similar thoughts about Michael Jackson’s passing? A similar posting was made about him when he passed, before an official reason for his death came out, and he has been mentioned on here numerous times, as well as unflattering pictures of him posted. If not, you’re a hypocrite.

Comment by Lissa — December 23, 2009 at 1:40 am

Q – I know you were addressing Dy, but I have to say, you are only trying to change the subject and twist the argument when you bring up the crazy idea that those of us who are offended by this blog somehow only care about Brittany Murphy and not anyone else and are therefore hypocrites.

First of all, I haven’t seen the MJ post (I don’t spend every waking hour keeping up with posts on this site), but yes, I certainly would find any blog posted shortly after his death focusing only on his plastic surgery and making rude assumptions about the way he died disrespectful. I happen to think that anyone who just died shouldn’t be ridiculed, but maybe it’s just me.

Second of all, despite all that, the whole hypocrite argument is completely irrelevant to the issue at hand. The question is whether this particular blog is inappropriate and/or disrespectful to the victim and her family. And it is. It makes condescending remarks about Brittany, saying she was self destructive, making assumptions based on “rumors” and posting photos of her over the years that were originally posted to make a mockery of her. It makes the whole thing seem very mean spirited.

Would you want your close family member to be portrayed this way at their death, no matter how they died? If not, then you are the hypocrite. If so, then you’re just plain heartless.

Comment by Julian — December 23, 2009 at 4:16 am

The saddest part is that in Hollywood you don´t need to have talent but a plastic surgeon…..

Comment by leo — December 23, 2009 at 9:06 am

Mean-spirited? This woman’s story, as well as so many others here are meant as CAUTIONARY TALES, for anyone who doesn’t think that the quest for perfection can lead to harm. To ignore this, and to not post about her is what’s ultimately cruel, and if one person sees themselves going down this road and stops then something wonderful has happened. To say that we are being disrespectful (on a site that calls itself awfulplasticsurgery) is just absurd and self-righteous and hypocritical. I think this site provides a service, and if you don’t, well just don’t come here.

Comment by Q — December 23, 2009 at 9:45 am

If a family member of mine was used as an example as to why certain behaviors became destructive, that would be fine with me, because I have family members who do engage in destructive behaviors. My father died of pancreatic cancer, mostly due to his smoking habit, and his teeth were black and yellow from a combination of his smoking and lack of brushing for decades (they were so bad that one of them shattered when a cold gust of wind came along). If there was a site that wanted to post pictures of his state just before death and show pictures prior to that– you know what? Go for it.. even though most likely no one would see it as a reason to not take up smoking and to brush their teeth, maybe *someone* might.

This site isn’t ridiculing Brittany Murphy’s death, it’s making a very valid comparison that her plastic surgeries and painkillers she would have gotten from those surgeries most likely contributed to her death. Very much like Michael Jackson. If you don’t like a site’s content or are somehow offended that a site that focuses on bad plastic surgery is going to *shockers!* focus on someone who had bad plastic surgery, no matter whether they’re living or dead, please, save this site’s bandwidth for those of us who do like seeing this sort of thing. Death is death.. we die, we’re eventually forgotten, people move on.

Comment by Sasha — December 23, 2009 at 11:03 am

Everyone needs to put things in perspective and move on. There are more shockers yet to come.

Comment by Dy — December 23, 2009 at 9:13 pm

Ok, let me express to you then, my mindset when I saw this post on here. To me, this seemed to read, “Hey, guys, Brittany Murphy just died! Let’s look at a collage of really unflattering pictures of her stupid plastic surgery ventures over the years!” If you saw this as anything different, then so be it. That was just my viewpoint on this entire thing.

Comment by Sasha — December 23, 2009 at 11:09 pm

What I don’t understand is how anyone taking opiate pain meds can be ‘anorexic’. Pain meds make you HUNGRY. Opiate pain meds were allegedly in this woman’s repertoire. Ask anyone who has ever taken them for chronic pain or for surgery recovery if they made them hungry as hell. So if this woman was anorexic and on opiates, something is paradoxical. Also, to blame surgery for pain killer addiction is off kilter. Enough meds are prescribed by the treating physician to bring the patient through the painful period following any surgery, then the meds are discontinued. If the patient procures them some other way, like through a scrip’ doctor, that’s a different story. Maybe she had a non-legal source.

Comment by P — December 24, 2009 at 8:59 am

She was kinda weird lookin’ to begin with, huh.

Comment by Q — December 24, 2009 at 9:25 am

Your viewpoint is one of a minority then, Dy.

As for how she got the pain meds, I’d have no doubt that some came from not so legit sources, but she started getting them from somewhere, and plastic surgert seems a prime candidate

Comment by Sasha — December 24, 2009 at 8:39 pm

Remember Bullock in ‘28 Days’? She had Vicodin issues and the character she portrayed was not recovering from plastic surgery. I know people who got on painkillers for reasons having nothing to do with plastic surgery. In the case of this actress, who knows.

Comment by Q — December 24, 2009 at 10:22 pm

I’ve never seen the movie, so no, don’t really remember Bullock in that role. I’m sure there are plenty of people who start out on painkillers and it not relate to plastic surgery. However, I’ve rarely heard of anyone who was able to just get those sorts of pills out the blue, usually requires a reason such as surgery or an accident of some sort. If it was an accident with Brittany Murphy, I highly doubt she could have hidden that, and the same goes for if a close member of her family had had an accident of some sort. Ergo, plastic surgery looks to be a likely candidate.

Comment by Sasha — December 25, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Quid pro quo, you could be wrong. There are doctors out there who mete out painkillers for no good reason. They are called ’scrip’ doctors. You go to see them and say ‘my back is killing me’ or whatever, and boom, you’ve got a prescription. They are basically drug pushers with a medical degree. They charge a high fee for the visit, and you keep coming back for refills. I know at least two people who are going to this type of doctor. There was a doctor arrested for this behavior near where I lived a couple of years ago. A tourist approached him with the above scenario, got a scrip for Oxycontin, and died from using it incorrectly. The doctor was investigated and it was found that he had been doing this for a long time. You people on this blog need to wake up and do your homework. Not every disaster that befalls humanity is related to plastic surgery. And you hate it when someone comes up with an intelligent, well-researched alternative explanation to counterpoint your mindset!

Comment by Kelly — December 25, 2009 at 1:19 pm

I really don’t know who she is from the movies but to look at her she looked like a basket case anorexic. I feel bad she died but this girl was not healthy, physically or menatlly or both. She was 32 and probably old enough to know better.

Comment by Q — December 25, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Sasha, I’m aware that there are doctors who are scrip hacks. However, more often than not, you gotta start somewhere.. people don’t just go out of the blue one day and decide “Hey, I’m going to take painkillers!” I’m sorry that you like to ignore certain arguments, and I’ve REPEATEDLY stated that you don’t typically have people immediately start getting hooked on painkillers, you typically get people who started taking those meds for a legitimate condition and they get hooked on the side effects from there.

Comment by miss lisa — December 26, 2009 at 11:00 am

I don’t get it that y’all think she’s anorexic. In the most recent pics, she’s about the same size as I am, which looks normal to me. Take a look at photos of Karen Carpenter before she died in 82, you’ll see the dif.

Comment by Sasha — December 26, 2009 at 12:58 pm

See here, Q., you are generalizing and speaking for thousands of people whom you have never met. Some people like to get high, period, and opiate pain killers are also sold illegally. Some people have tried them, got them from a friend who had them, then sought them out with NO legitimate medical reason of any kind! Go away already.

Comment by Q — December 26, 2009 at 8:38 pm

Sasha, I’ve already said that I’m aware of that segment who get high for the sake of getting high. However, they are the minority of people who are hooked on prescription medications.. far more people get addicted after first having gotten them for a legitimate medical condition and then, after enjoying the side effects, seek out the medications however they can get them. Your method of how people get hooked isn’t nearly as common, although you may think it is perhaps due to you doing the whole “pot calling the kettle black” thing by generalizing, perhaps based on some sort of personal experience you may have had with maybe a couple of people you know who’ve gotten pain medications with that method.

Ergo, it’s more likely that Brittany Murphy got her meds from her plastic surgeries that she has had (unless you’re going to deny that those big boobs despite her skinny frame aren’t the result of surgery), than that she just randomly stumbled upon them one day and decided they’d be good to try. Any other ways that you’re going to try to ignore what is plain to see for plenty of other people?

Comment by Sasha — December 26, 2009 at 10:52 pm

You have some kind of problem. It is quite irrelevant at this point whether you are right or I am wrong, or vice versa. The woman is dead. FYI many physicians get hooked on pain meds with no medical justification. If you like to argue, go to law school. I’m outta here. You can have the last word, I won’t check back to read it. Beating a dead horse (or actress, for that matter) gets really old.
