This year has been a devastating one for Hollywood land. And unfortunately today, there is news of yet another young talent who has left us way too soon. Actress Brittany Murphy is dead. She was just 32 years old.

This morning, Brittany was found unconscious in her shower by her mother Sharon. After paramedics arrived to the scene, it is being reported that the actress was in full cardiac arrest. TMZ is reporting that although Murphy was attempted to be revived, those attempts were unfortunately unsuccessful.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles City Fire Department received a call to a home in Los Angeles this morning at 8:00 AM, December 20th, 2009. The home is listed as belonging to Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack.

After having been taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Murphy was pronounced dead upon arrival.

I am so extremely saddened to hear this news. C’mon, how could you not love Brittany in her breakout role as Tai in Clueless? Murphy was adorable in that flick! And did you not see “Don’t Say a Word”? Or what about the hilarious “Just Married”, my personal favorite? I loved her in that flick! Murphy also starred in “8 Mile,” alongside rap star Eminem.

Ughhh, what a sad day this must be for friends, fans and family who loved Brittany. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Murphy family during this difficult time.

Goodbye to you, Brittany. You will be missed.

This story is still developing.

Update from TMZ: Sources are saying that Brittany Murphy’s mom discovered her unconscious in the shower. When paramedics arrived, they quickly determined Murphy was in full cardiac arrest and immediately administered CPR.

    I am so sad hearing this news. She was so talented and young.
    Maybe we should focus on the tragedy instead of the grammer!?! Ya Think?
    (Why do people who complain about grammer always spell something wrong in their comments?)
