Star of "Clueless" Brittany Murphy Tragically Died Today

Ashton Kutcher sent a message on Twitter Sunday morning about Brittany Murphy's death: "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine," Kutcher wrote. "My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon." That about sums up how we feel here at Celebrity Wire. Brittany Murphy was a beautiful and talented actress that was very loved in the entertainment community in Los Angeles and just about everywhere she went. She rose to fame in "8 mile" She worked with stars like Michael Douglas, Ashton Kutcher, Angelina Jolie, Eminem and many other major talents. She also appeared in TV roles and in two films in 1999 -- "Drop Dead Gorgeous" and "Girl, Interrupted," for which Jolie received an Oscar. She also appeared in "Sin City", "Uptown Girls", "Don't Say A Word" , and "Just Married". She was married to British Screenwriter Simon Monjack. The Los Angeles County Coroner has said there were no suspicious circumstances regarding her passing but that they would conduct and autopsy over the coming days. It is a sad and tragic day for the Hollywood community to lose such a young and vibrant talent and we mourn her passing.

God Be With You!

Maybe Enough was Not Enough for Tiger Woods!

If you read our last blog we said "Tiger Woods may have had twenty affairs and he may have had (and more likely) closer to none" and that the whole Tiger story was getting too nasty and becoming a witch hunt. Well, we weren't technically wrong:) But just like Tiger Woods needs to do, we have to admit when we make a mistake. While we do not endorse piling on individuals for their personal issues this story has become more than just a witch hunt. It is a disaster for the PGA and the whole golf industry and it now will effect the livelihood of many, many people and the income of innocent hard working families that didn't have spouses with 13 affairs. Celebrity Wire also now wonders why it should support and speak out for Tiger Woods when he seems unwilling to do so for himself. At this point when you are having such a major effect on so many people and their economic lives it seems like total cowardice and wrong to go hide in your mansions and your yachts, as opposing to appear in person and just "Man UP'! So Tiger Woods it is now time for you to open your mouth and show your face and act like a responsible adult, instead of a sulking spoiled overpaid child. Do it for your family! Do it for your self respect! Do it for other Stanford Alumnni that you are now embarrassing! Nobody normal wants to see you or your beautiful wife Elin hurt of the game or golf tarnished any further, so now it is time to do the right thing and stop others from speaking for you by opening your own mouth!

Tiger Woods Story Ends: Enough Is Enough!

Celebrity Wire likes following or breaking an interesting story as much as any celebrity news service. The Tiger Woods accident ordeal certainly on its face seems to be an interesting story with probably a lot more intrigue than it deserves. Then on second thought.... This was an accident literally at a persons private residence which did not end up going farther than that. Let's ask: Shouldn't a celebrity have some privacy in their own home? But then where does that story end and a myriad of phony opportunistic stories begin. And they are beginning.... and beginning and beginning... I love the blogoshpere and the power of the web. But power should be used properly and with some caution when we are dealing with the lives of real people. You don't have to like Tiger Woods or his wife Elin or their innocent and nice children. But they are real people with real feelings that transcends money and fame! Now Celebrity Wire wants to call it out (even after joking about the real traffic story ourselves) that this is becoming a witch hunt and it is bullshit and irresponsible and disgusting!!!!! We have a responsibility as journalists to check our stories and to really verify our sources before WE VERIFY and put our name on a story. It is not enough to just get hits for our google ads or our sponsors. It is a responsibility to tell the truth to ourselves and to our faith. Otherwise where does it end and where do we ever draw the line? Tiger Woods may have had twenty affairs and he may have had (and more likely) closer to none. This is nothing but a circus now and it is just ugly. Why have we degraded ourselves as a people or as press to think that the best thing we can financially do is to try to destroy a life or a marriage or a family or a successful career of a celebrity or wealthy person for our own corporate attention. My parents used to simply call it jealousy, and I guess that is still what it is. It is a joy of bringing someone on a higher level than you are down to your level. It stinks and it sucks and it is a moral depravity of our system these days. It won't stop and nothing I write on this subject will likely matter much. I just hope we give some pause to our fellow celebrity sites just for a minute on this one. Take a minute and take a breath before you put it into print and try to make it all real whether it is or not. This was an accident story with some interesting twists that were very questionable and probably still is. But this was not an invitation for all of us to go out and ruin the life of someone that has been an asset to sports and society for many years. I did not ever get that invitation: so I refuse it. Celebrity Wire is done with this kind of story when it goes to that level. Tiger got a ticket for $160.00 he paid it and good luck to you and your family. We are out of this one!!!! Celebrity Wire does not hire or employ witch hunters and we hope our respected partners and blogroll partners think the same way.

Peace Out! Sphere: Related Content
