the actress has died suddenly at age 65

she was quite the thing in the 80s, including playing a bond girl:

though she's probably best known for her comeback role as midge in that 70s show:

iirc she showed onto the scene in a bikini, fresh out of the water.
Previously the show was all promise and no delivery.

Apparently the report came from her publicist but was incorrect.

Doesn't one typically hire a publicist to prevent things like that from happening?

Her publicist apparently said he got the information from her husband. I don't know.

Donna's mom is... still alive! (those words will always remind me of the Portal song)

Let's hope she gets better and stays alive for a while this time.

Well, some people say any publicity is good publicity... she did get a lot of headlines, so there's that.

Maybe she did die, and rose from the dead? Tanya Roberts is the messiah.

Nope, she's gone.
Her partner Lance O'Brien mistakenly thought she had died on Sunday after visiting her in hospital. After getting a call from doctors to say she was deteriorating quickly, he went to her bedside, her eyes closed and she "faded", TMZ reported.

Devastated, he walked out of the room and then the hospital without speaking to medical staff before informing Roberts' agent that he had "just said goodbye to Tanya".

But while being interviewed for US TV show Inside Edition on Monday, Mr O'Brien got a call from the hospital to say she was alive.

The moment was captured on film, as he picked up his phone and said: "Now you're telling me she's alive? Thank the Lord." However, she died Monday night.

That's a horrible thing to do to someone.

"Her 18-year domestic partner Lance O'Brien received the phone call from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last night at their home confirming her passing," the statement read, adding that Tanya's "cause of death was from a urinary tract infection, which spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then bloodstream."
