Brittany Murphy is dead at age 32 from cardiac arrest. Suspicions are that drugs and an anorexic condition played a part in her untimely death. 32 is a young age to die of natural causes, but it is not unheard of.
Unfortunately when natural causes are first cited as the cause of death in Hollywood, the autopsy more often than not exposes drugs as the real cause, which was the case with Michael Jackson and so many others.
These reports of Brittany’s cause of death are an eerie reminder of the cause of death first reported for Michael Jackson earlier this year. Cardiac arrest was the reported cause of death for him before all the drugs were found in his system.
Brittany Murphy was found unresponsive in the shower by her mother on Sunday morning. TMZ reports that Brittany’s mother told the emergency medical personal that she had a history of diabetes, with no other health issues being reported.
Her thin and bone exposed body has been rumored to be as a result of anorexia, which Brittany had denied over the years. When it was reported she was doing cocaine, she stated she never has done that substance and she didn’t even know what it looked like because she had never even seen it.
An autopsy will be done on the body of Brittany Murphy even after the requests that no autopsy be preformed from her husband, Simon Monjack. An autopsy needs to be done to find out how this young woman died.
Brittany Murphy has become yet another star that has died while in the prime of their life. Shades of stars like Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson, both dying from drug overdoses.
Although it is still only being asked if perhaps Brittney Murphy died from a drug overdose, this is certainly one of the first things that come to mind when you hear a 32 year old star dies from cardiac arrest.
What happens to the people that achieve fame beyond their dreams? Being in the limelight becomes such a high in itself that it is hard to find anything else that will bring that much euphoria, except maybe the euphoria found in drugs.
Tiger Woods is a good example of this with his great accomplishments that had him on such a high that it has been hard to match this. This sex addiction of his may be a way of getting that high back. He has done it all, there was nothing left to produce that high. The same high that others turn to drugs for. Tiger may be finding this high in his sexual escapades.
Once you feel the euphoric feelings that come from being in the spotlight, you seek that feeling out again and again. Being in the spotlight becomes an everyday occurrence and the affect of the euphoria wears off because you have become desensitized to. Now you search for it again in other ways. It appears Tiger turned to sex, where other famous people turn to drugs for that high.
Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger are just a few recent casualties of chasing the feeling of being happy by using drugs. I believe Tiger Woods world falling apart is a casualty of chasing that high, which he may have found in his many sexual encounters. The mind craves those feelings once it has been exposed to them.
We will soon know the cause of death for Brittany Murphy, and only time will tell if she was yet another casualty of finding euphoria in the wrong places. May she rest in peace.
