New York, 6th January: Hollywood actress Tanya Roberts has finally passed away at 65 after conflicting news regarding her death.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Pingel stated that Roberts’s longtime partner, Lance O’Brien, had received a call from the hospital confirming her death late the previous night. The infection had spread to Roberts’s kidney, gallbladder, liver and bloodstream.
A confusion over Roberts’s health stemmed from Pingel who confirmed her death to the media outlets on Sunday.
He told The Washington Post on Monday, before her actual passing, that he had mistakenly announced it because of a ‘miscommunication’ involving hospital staff and O’Brien.
“He was called to go because she was passing away, they thought, and so he went and saw her — that is how it happened,” Pingel said on Monday.
“The phone rang at 10 a.m. [Monday] morning, and it was the hospital saying that, yes, she was still alive and in the ICU, and she had not passed away.”
Tanya Roberts and Lance O’Brian were partners of 18 years.
Roberts, who appeared opposite Sir Roger Moore in his final Bond film, also starred in ‘The Beastmaster and Sheena: Queen of the Jungle.’
She also appeared in ‘That ’70’s Show’, where she played the role of Midge Pinciotti in more than 80 episodes of the show made between 1998 and 2004.
