Brittany Murphy’s husband spoke for the first time yesterday to Access Hollywood about his wife’s health at the time of her death. Simon has decided to do some more talking, this time to People Magazine. People said that Simon got weepy throughout the interview, but really wanted to give his side of the rumors floating around there.
On the rumor that Brittany suffered from anorexia:
“These rumors that she was anorexic? It’s crazy – she was slim, but that was her natural physique. She tried to gain weight but had one of those metabolisms – a high metabolism – but enjoyed food as much as anyone. I wish I could show all the receipts from the take out restaurants.”
On not wanting an autopsy on Brittany’s body:
“My initial reaction to the autopsy was – they’re going to cut her open – I couldn’t bear it. That would break her mother, but we realized we needed to know. I look forward to getting the results.”
On the heart murmur she suffered from and what kind of meds she was taking:
“She was on herbal remedies that wouldn’t speed up her heart. There was nothing here that could endanger her; there was prescription medication in the house for her female time and some cough syrup. That was it.”
On if Brittany died from any kind of overdose:
“I can get rid of that one right now.”
On people saying he’s a Sleeeeeeze McSleezester:
“So many people have their views of us, but they never met us or sat down with us. I’m not perfect, but I don’t think anyone is … I am feeling beyond devastated. I was in love with Brittany and Brittany with me.“
TMZ posted a Dr. Murray-approved list of prescription meds (including Klonopin, Vicoprofen and Topamax) that their sources claim was found on Brittany’s nightstand. The source said that some of the meds were in Brittany’s name, while others were in her mother’s and husband’s names. So I’m not sure what to think when reading that Simon says Brittany was only taking stuff you find at Whole Foods. Hm. Maybe I shouldn’t think at all, and go eat my fifth chocolate covered candy cane of the day instead. Yeah, I’ll do that.
