Publicist Mike Pingel mistakenly reported that 65-year-old actress Tanya Roberts had died, after Roberts’ partner, Lance O’Brien contacted him to say that she had passed away after a bad fall at her home.

This resulted in the media publishing articles to that effect.

However, O’Brien was subsequently notified by the hospital that Roberts is still alive while he was holding an interview with media outlet Inside Edition… and all this was caught on camera.

Pingel has now stated that Roberts is currently still alive, but in a poor condition in Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre hospital in Los Angeles, California.

Born Victoria Leigh Blum in 1955, apart from being playing Bond girl Stacey Sutton in A View to a Kill opposite Roger Moore and Midge Pinciotti in That 70’s show, Roberts also had a stint on Charlie’s Angels, when she replaced Shelley Hack in the TV series, becoming the third Angel, Julie, alongside Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd.
