Known and loved for her starring role as Rose Lee Holloway in the 80’s sitcom, 227 and as Olivia, Gordon’s younger sister, on the long-running children’s television series, Sesame Street, actress Alaina Reed Hall-Amini died on Thursday last week in Los Angeles. She was 63 and was reported to be battling breast cancer.

Most recently, she was featured on ER and had guest roles on a variety of prime-time favorites including NYPD Blue, A Different World and Ally McBeal,..

As you all are already aware, another Hollywood actress passed away. Yesterday, early afternoon, TMZ broke the disheartening news that Brittany Murphy had died after going into cardiac arrest early Sunday morning in her home. Brittany is best known for her roles in “Clueless”,“Uptown Girls”,  “8 Mile”, “Girl Interrupted”, “Sin City” and “Just Married”). She was only 32 years old at time of death.

TMZ also reported that Brittany Murphy‘s autopsy is complete. There were no signs of foul play, and there was nothing that pointed to a cause of death. The cause of death has been “deferred” pending other tests. Sources say the L.A. County Coroner will wait for the toxicology report, as well as the histopathology (study of her organs and tissues) and neuropathology (study of her brain).

Our thoughts & prayers go out to both families! Leave us your thoughts!

    I did not know that Alaina Reed Hall-Amini died. I grew up watching her on Sesame Street. May her soul rest in peace.

    Britney Murphy is till a shock to me. I remember the first movies I saw her in “Don’t Say a Word.” She was brilliant. May her soul rest in peace.

    Thanks for posting this.
