Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived, multiple sources tell TMZ.

She was 32.

A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack, the Los Angeles City Fire Department tells TMZ.

We're told Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," and "Don't Say a Word."

Story developing ...

No - just looks like someone can't resist any reason to launch personal attacks on you instead of trying to foster the sense of community many folks hoped would prevail while we collectively grieved.  A PM would have been effective - airing it out in public at this time is really crass and I would have hoped for better.

This whole community needs to remember to let everyone process this tragedy in their own way.  Not everyone cries and falls apart, not everyone loses their sense of humour and not everyone stops carrying on as usual.  It doesn't make them insensitive and it doesn't make them wrong.  It just makes them different.
 
But the good thing about the RP community is its willingness to turn on each other, assume the worst, name call, and start a dust up - rather than look for an alternate explanation. That's why I stay here!

I still think its funny.  Death is funny.  Laughter is all part of the grieving process.  I've been to funerals where the whole family was laughing.    There's a time for everything.

But I also think the timing of that particular title popping up could be construed as insensitive.  Unfortunately, Eric Woolfson died at a time when some are feeling more raw than usual around here.  I definitely don't believe anyone meant to be thoughtless.

Ehh.  You can't be blamed for the timing.  Sometimes, shit happens.

However, I can tell you that in as long as I've been around RP, I've had dozens...maybe hundreds of comedic misfires - probably offending every person reading at one time or another.  And each one of those times has been my fault, and mine alone.

Something like... "I'm too insensitive and self-absorbed to respect the difference between grieving the expected death of a sibling who possessed a healthy sense of dark humor and grieving the sudden premature death of a child whose appreciation of same is, understandably, negligible."

Or "I save my sensitivity for wealthy politicians."

Or "Honk if you lack common sense!"

Can't remember exactly.
