    I was looking at the recent deaths page on Wikipedia and I found out that Brittany Murphy, who played Luanne Leanne Platter on this show, has died after 32 years. Remember how throughout the series run, Luanne could sob uncontrollably at times? Well, if she's admitted to heaven, she's proably be doing the same right now.

    I just saw an article about her death as well. Cardiac arrest apparently. So sad. RIP.

    i just read that online.. this is so sad.. I'm wondering if she had the CA due to her weight flux. She was last seen publicly on Dec 1st at a banquet in the strapless black gown. She had lost so much weight & I remember an article comparing her to what she looked like now and what she looked like about a year ago..

    RIP Britney

    Wow, this is surprising. For an actress that you don't hear about as much, this is still a shock.

    Fox did air all of the un-aired episodes. There was a one hour series finale on September 13, 2009. In the last episode Bobbie got his own BBQ.

    He's right; there were six completed episodes in the can at the end of 2009-10 season, and only two of them have aired. They won't air on Fox, though; they've given up all the broadcast rights.

    As for Brit, she might've been a fair-to-middling movie actress, but I will always think of her as Luanne Platter-Kleinschmidt.

    After all this, I feel like playing over and over the song "Last Christmas" by Wham!.

    Last Christmas, I give you my heart, But the very next day, you give it away. This year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to someone special.

    yeah it's such a shame that someone like Brittney, who was one of Hollywood's up & coming stars', had to die at such a young age. She had so much promise to be one of the greats

    She was a good actress. I don't see how she'd died that early.
