Natasha Richardson is ‘Irreplaceable’



In response to her untimely death at the age of 45 from a skiing accident, Natasha Richardson’s friends and colleagues have issued statements recalling her life and the affect she had on the lives of others. Us Magazine reports:
Mia Farrow:
“Natasha is irreplaceable. I cannot think of anyone kinder, more generous, thoughtful, smarter or more fun. She is the godmother of two of my children. The Neesons and Vanessa [Redgrave, Richardson's mother] have always made me feel a part of their wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.”

Lindsay Lohan, Richardson’s costar in 1998′s The Parent Trap:
“She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own. I didn’t see much of her over the years, but I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss.”

Demi Moore (via Twitter):
“I am sending out prayers for Natasha Richardson and her family. A real reminder of how precious life is and how quickly it can be gone.”

Martha Stewart
(via Twitter):
“Just heard the tragic news about poor Natasha Richardson. Her family must be devastated. My sincerest condolences to all.”

Blythe Danner:
“I can’t talk because I started crying. I’m heart broken. She was so kind to us when Bruce [Paltrow, Danner's late husband] was ill. She’s so generous. I don’t think that I can handle it.”

By all accounts Natasha Richardson was a genuinely kind and generous person who was involved in a Hollywood marriage that was bound by sincere love and mutual respect, so we are terribly sorry for her family’s loss. I’m also sorry that Lindsay Lohan still manages to stay alive. I mean, she should be dead by now right? Vodka and speedballs aren’t vitamins, right? If there was any justice in this world, an anvil would drop on this bitch’s head while she was walking over a manhole and it would hit her so hard she would shoot out of the ground in China where she would be raped by a Panda then thrown off the side of a mountain. You know, or something like that. This is more of a rough draft really.

EVEN MORE TRAGIC UPDATE: The first ambulance was turned away because Richardson showed no signs of injury. Wow.

As we reported here, actress Natasha Richardson suffered a traumatic brain injury on Monday that has now reportedly left her completely brain dead. Richardson was on a beginner’s trail when she fell but she got up and later claimed she wasn’t feeling well. Although there were no visible signs of injury, Richardson complained of a headache an hour later and was taken to the hospital. People reports:
“There is no chance,” a family friend told PEOPLE on Tuesday night. “It is a fact that her heart is beating but she is brain dead.” Her dire condition – doctors described it to those close to Richardson as “leakage of blood between the brain and skull,” the friend says – has the actress’s family coming to grips with potentially having to make an unthinkably difficult decision. “It’s not official yet,” says the friend, “but they basically will detach her.”

Jesus, this is sad. The only way this could be any sadder is if her long lost sister Nettie comes back from Africa with Natasha’s now full grown children who can’t speak English. Only African. Then Albert smiles from a distance with his horse. Then Natasha and Nettie play patty cake. The end.
