Bond Girl and ‘That ‘70s Show’ Star Tanya Roberts Dead at 65


In a new report from TMZ, Tanya’s rep is saying she’s not dead. Lance, Tanya’s husband, had told the rep, who relayed the information to TMZ, that Tanya had died after collapsing on Christmas Eve. Now the rep tells TMZ that he’s retracting that statement and that Tanya is still alive.

Former “That ’70s Show” co-star Ashton Kutcher took to Twitter to respond to cast mates Topher Grace (Eric) and Debra Jo Rupp’s (Kitty) tribute tweets, informing them that she had not passed, but in a very Kelso way, of course. 

“yo bro she’s not dead,” Ashton replied to Topher.

“dj she’s still alive,” he added to DJ Rupp’s message.
