To die in a tub like your mom did three years later—so tragic. But it appears that the initial report of Bobbi Kristina being in a coma was one of those optimistic announcements that really meant to expect grim news a few days later: She is reportedly brain-dead.

Huge shocker from the world of fitness—Greg Plitt, a fitness expert, model and bodybuilder, who had been one of the most famous of his kind, died yesterday after being struck by a train. He was just 37.
Police have initially ruled out suicide; it appears to have been some kind of tragic accident. Plitt was apparently walking with friends in an area forbidden to pedestrians, capturing photos of passing trains.
Plitt starred on the Bravo series Work Out (2006—2008), appeared on countless magazine covers, in print ads and in TV spots, and was the body inspiration for “Dr. Manhattan” in Watchmen (2009).
It also saddens me to know so many people all over the Internet will likely be clucking their tongues about how he died, failing to realize that we all in our lives do silly things that aren't safe, and yet we usually survive. No judgment, just sadness for the death of someone so young, healthy and motivated to keep living his best life.
Anita Ekberg didn't become an acclaimed or versatile actress, but one thing she did was become a film icon thanks to one scene in Federico Fellini's (1920—1993) La Dolce Vita (1960)—her hedonistic dance in the Trevi Fountain is one of cinema's most enduring images.
Ekberg has died at 83 after a long illness; she broke her hip years ago (thanks to one of her playful dogs) and apparently never fully recovered.
Fellow sex kitten Mamie Van Doren, 83, remembers Ekberg on Facebook:
Van Doren is the last of Old Hollywood's '50s blonde bombshells.
I was so sorry to read that Taylor Negron has died; he apparently battled cancer for a long time, something I didn't know when I met him a couple of years ago in New York at a book event. He was warm and funny, and will be remembered for any one of a dozen or more flamboyantly funny and dry movie and TV performances, including in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) and Easy Money (1983), among many others.
Sad news from Hollywood as Rod Taylor has died at 84.
Taylor began his movie career 64 years ago, and appeared in such famous flicks as The Virgin Queen (1955), The Catered Affair (1956), Giant (1956), Raintree County (1957) and Separate Tables (1958), as well as being yet another key Twilight Zone player to die recently. (He was one of the astronauts in “And When the Sky Was Opened” in 1959.)
More famously, Taylor was Tippi Hedren's love interest in The Birds (1963) and as H.G. Wells in The Time Machine (1960).
I had not realized Taylor worked so recently, but he played Winston Churchill (see above) in the rather amazing Quentin Tarantino movie Inglourious Basterds in 2009.
