Do you guys remember Laurie, Eric Foreman’s older sister on That ’70s Show? She was played by actress Lisa Robin Kelly, who passed away in her sleep on Wednesday night at a rehab facility in California. The exact cause of death is currently unknown.
Here’s a statement from her agent, Craig Wyckoff:
“Lisa had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility early this week where she was battling the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years.
“I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her. [Wednesday] night she lost the battle. Cause of death has not been issued yet and no death certificate has been issued either.”
Of course, the cause of her death was most likely closely tied to her addiction or the effects that long-term substance abuse had on her body. Lisa was 43.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Kelly — who played Eric Foreman’s sister on the sitcom — and a male (identified as her husband) were each arrested last night following a violent incident at their home in which they allegedly assaulted each other.
Cops say there were no visible injuries — and no drugs or alcohol were involved.
Both Kelly and the 61-year-old man are still in custody.
Are we sure that the 61-year-old man is her husband, and not her father? Because if it is her father, you know, that’s called “elder abuse.” And I hear it’s not looked upon too kindly in North Carolina. What’s that? It is her husband? Oh. OK then. It’s just Lisa Robin Kelly being Lisa Robin Kelly; being all crazy and rambunctious and abusive. This is just what she does, and there’s really no special term for it like “elder abuse”; Lisa Robin Kelly‘s just a hot mess.
Do you recognize the lady in the photo? That’s Lisa Robin Kelly, the actress who played Eric’s big sister on the first five seasons of That 70s Show. Lisa hasn’t really been seen or heard from since leaving the show, but over the weekend she made quite the comeback… In mugshot form. The actress was arrested for driving under the influence and her mugshot is easily one of the worst we’ve ever seen. It’s on some Nick Nolte shit.
