5 Jan – Although actress Tanya Roberts' representative had initially reported on Sunday, 3 Jan 2021, that the actress had passed away - and was further confirmed so by her manager, Tarri Markel - it seemed that the actress is in fact still alive.

The actress had collapsed at home on Christmas Eve after a walk with her dogs, and was rushed to the hospital. She was subsequently put on a ventilator.

Roberts' publicist Mike Pingel said that her condition is very grim. While it is not COVID-19 related, a cause is not being disclosed.

Some viewers have recently seen Roberts on "That '70s Show" as Midge Pinciotti, Donna's sweet feather-brained mother. She left the popular TV series after 3 seasons to care for her terminally ill husband then.
