It has been almost a year since Brittany Murphy tragically died in her Hollywood home of pneumonia and prescription drug use. With her 33rd birthday today, her mother came out to announce a tell all book she was writing about her daughter’s life.
“This book will be my way of celebrating and honoring her extraordinary life and career. Brittany was a kind, loving person who enjoyed each day, she was my life,” Sharon Murphy said in an E! interview.
“I am looking forward to everyone reading the accurate account about my daughter, her life, loves and career. A portion of the proceeds that I receive from the book will be donated to charity.”
Brittany Murphy’s death was one of those that shocked me. I didn’t think a lot about her, but seeing her taken from the world at such a young age was a weird kind of blow. It was like when Heath Ledger died; I didn’t really pay much attention to him beyond the occasional movie, but I couldn’t believe he passed away.
I feel so sorry for her mother. Not only did she lose her daughter, but this year she also lost her son in law. Simon Monjack passed away in May, and a coroner’s report found that it was of the same exact thing as Brittany…weird!
