Sheena remains a b-movie classic from the genre's golden age.

What the hell? Her rep was the one who initially reported her death and in the first TMZ article, itís starts with a quote from her husband about holding her for the last time as she died.

How exactly is this a misunderstanding?

Are you saying something's fishy? Something's rotten in Denmark?

Do we need Columbo to ask, "Just one more question," to sort this out??

I hope this isn't some staged bullshit. Hey, we'll pretend she dies, when she didn't, and then rake in the money from future gigs.

Yeah, Iím not prepared to go so far as to say Tanya is in on some nefarious plot but that Inside Edition interview looked staged as shit.

No, not her. But her BF/manager. Shit, I hope she's all there in terms of her faculties and not being taken advantage of.

Since she is not dead, allow me to supplement my affectionate tribute with my childhood poster of hers:

^ I had that one too. I had a much harder crush on Ladd several years prior, but was motivated to plaster this one on the wall because she was just so damn striking. Those clear blue eyes with the raven hair and perfectly chiseled features...yowza.
She gave me a trashier, lower class vibe on CA which put me off at the time. Watching the eps again now, I think it was because of how much make-up they caked on her. You can see the heavy application of rouge in the poster. I think that might have been partly due to her relative youth at the time, and her skin was still showing signs of acne outbreaks.

Missed a golden opportunity to re-title the thread "Tanya Roberts dead age 65- Update [ Now one of the UNDEAD]

I really hate TMZ especially after how they handled the Tom Petty passing trying to be the first to call it. My sympathies to her friends, family and fans for enduring this at least she is at peace now. Oddly CNN still has an article up saying she is still alive but I'm sure they will update it soon.

I would, if the caller ID showed the hospital where my wife is.

It was her rep who confirmed that she was dead the first time (which was confirmed to them by her bf/domestic partner). TMZ didn't do anything wrong here. They confirmed the story with the people who were supposed to know.

Something's just weird with the whole story and I'm not sure what to believe. How does the bf think she's dead if she's not? He held her as she died, and left, but then was told the next day she was still alive? Only for her to die later?? Something doesn't sound right there.

This IMO was a case where everyone jumped the gun and it turned into a PR nightmare. Her rep should have kept this quiet until they got a clearer picture of her condition.

Anyways, Jaclyn Smith commented on her passing. The instagram link has her full comment.

Honestly, a lot of Inside Edition interviews look staged.

Article said the infection spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and bloodstream.

Decker is a doctor. He could probably confirm this as being something that could kill you.

That's nothing new, at least in the world of religion. 2,000 years from now, maybe Tanyaism will be the dominant religion, about the miracle of the woman who died, and came back to life, then died again.
