Really sad news. I always think of her as Daisy, too. "It's near the airport. One bedroom, two baths, eat-in chicken...."

Suzy Q

Is this true?!?

Cristin

Oh, awful. I love her as Luanne Platter.
I really hope they don't come back and say cause of death is drugs, but....
Just sad.

I read somewhere she did ALOT of drugs and this is just senseless bullshit. I have a bad feeling she just couldn't stop the party lifestyle and her poor tiny body just quit. I am angry about her passing, just doesn't seem fair somehow.

Brittany will definitely be missed... She is
one of my all-time VERY favorite actresses.
It's a shame that she didn't have children though.
I think her egg cells should be preserved
if still possible. It would be terrible to
see Brittany's legacy end with her.
