RIP Tanya Roberts Dead at age 65 [UPDATE: Dead for the second time]

Sad news. Need to fire up the Beastmaster from Vinegar Syndrome.

Hers was the first "girlie" poster I ever bought (I know, not exactly an eloquent tribute on my behalf).

Very sad for such an icon of the very early eighties.

I know she hasn't worked much in recent years, but back in her prime years, she was pretty smoking hot.

I watched her in re-runs of her one and only season of Angels and of course I was a teen when she was in A View to a Kill. In the 1990s, I know she did some softcore porn straight to video movies, but I don't fault her for that. She needed the work.

Well, RIP.

Sad news. I liked a few of her trashy 80s movies and loved her on That 70s Show.

Iíll still stick up for View To A Kill as one of my fave Bonds (first I ever saw!) and Sheena and Beastmaster are B movie classics. 65 is not that old, just sad to see. RIP.

Yeah, I was about to fire up Beastmaster on 4K disc but now may just wait and watch something else instead.

Oh I remember Sheena as well. I saw it on VHS when it came out in the 80s. I recall it was a PG rated movie, but there was 1 topless scene with her and my Mom almost had a heart attack when she saw that scene. as I was watching it.

My favorite film of hers is probably the low budget horror gem Tourist Trap.

RIP

One of my favorite guilty pleasures with her was Night Eyes. It also starred Andrew Stevens. He played a private security guard who always got stuck protecting a very sexy woman and of course they always hooked up. They made 4 of these movies and of course I saw them all. She was pretty hot in the 1st movie.

Man, the irony being that she always seemed older in that show, and she was only in her 40's leaning into her 50's by the time the show ended!

Wow. Midge is gone.

She was one of the worst Bond girls, but she really found her calling in comedy on That 70's Show. She was really funny.

That Tourist Trap era was my idea of a dream girl.

This is reminding me of when Tom Petty died, and I was working in a newsroom, and he died and wasn't dead and died several times over the course of a day or so.

It reminds me of the Simpsons.....

Mr. Burns was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was then transferred to a better hospital where doctors upgraded his condition to "Alive."

My thoughts exactly.

So she DID collapse on 12/24 and has been on a ventilator??

I would not be surprised to get an update later today or tomorrow stating that she is gone.

Who knows? This is weird!

She's still alive, but not out of the woods yet. This article says it's "dire" condition.

So it's Tom Petty Part II.

Hopefully with a better ending...
