Tanya Roberts Alive – On Monday, January 4, 2021, Tanya Roberts publicist mistakenly reported her dead.
Tanya Roberts, who captivated James Bond in “A View to a Kill” and later played Midge Pinciotti in the sitcom “That ’70s Show,” has been hospitalized after falling at her home.
Roberts’ publicist Mike Pingel later told The Associated Press Monday afternoon that Roberts, 65, was still alive as of 10 a.m. PST but was in a poor condition. He had said earlier Monday that Roberts collapsed in her home on Dec. 24 and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was believed to have died on Sunday.
Pingel said Roberts’ husband, Lance O’Brien, told him that he held his wife and she “seemed for him to slip away.”
O’Brien, Roberts’ husband of 18 years, was quoted in the release saying, “Tanya and I have never been apart. This is too much to handle. Her animals are lost without her and so am I.”
He broke down in tears during an interview with Inside Edition when his phone rang and he learned she was still alive.
The publicist said he is awaiting further updates on Roberts’ condition.
