TMZ says that Lisa Robin Kelly, who played slut hero Laurie Forman on That 70s Show, died last night in rehab after going into cardiac arrest. Lisa Robin Kelly had been trying to kick her addiction to booze for years and during the past 3 years, she was arrested 4 times including once for a DUI and once for allegedly beating on her 61-year-old husband. She checked into rehab on Monday to finally dry out and get clean. She was 43.
Lisa had apparently been in and out of rehab for years and she was clean for a while until she had some kind of dispute with her ex-husband Robert Gilliam. Lisa got back on the bottle and her new boyfriend took her to rehab on Monday. On Wednesday night, Lisa went into cardiac arrest while sleeping and died.
Lisa’s agent told TMZ, “She had been fighting demons for a while and finally lost her battle.”
And I’m telling Lisa’s agent, “‘Fightings demons’ is the dark version of ‘over the moon’ and I don’t like it. This isn’t Castlevania.”
Rest in peace, Laurie Forman.
