RIP Brittany Murphy
Actress Brittany Murphy died, discovered by her mother in her home this morning after suffering severe cardiac arrest. Weird. And very sad. She was my age. After reading this shocking piece of news, the first thing I thought of was that she was just lampooned on SNL’s Weekend Update last Saturday.
Abby Elliott (daughter of Chris Elliott) did the impression, which I thought was a bit odd since I had not heard anything about Brittany Murphy in forever…oddly prescient, I suppose, but any moment of SNL in which I am not forced to suffer through Kristen Wiig’s existence is okay by me.
RIP Brittany Murphy. I hope wherever you are, you’re rollin’ with the homies.
