Though her family has yet to issue an official statement, gossip columnist Liz Smith is reporting that Natasha Richardson was taken off life support around 1:30 P.M. on Wednesday at NYC's Lennox Hill Hospital.

The actress, and wife to Liam Neeson, suffered serious brain damage after a skiing accident on Monday in Canada.

Our thoughts go out to her family.

    I'd have thought you would have learned your lesson this week, about posting w/out factual confirmation, dick head.



  2. 2

    so sad.



  3. 3

    Let her die in peace you asswipe, you fucked this story up so bad



  4. 4

    What a sad story. She was so gorgeous and talented and classy. My heart goes out to Liam and their children and their families.



  5. 5

    Holy Crap!

    That's the girl from the parent trap!

    I love that movie!

    D: RIP Natasha Richardson

    Re: CharmerRe: DikinCider

    Does it really matter what this fckwad has done when somebody just died?

    Don't ruin her memory by saying crap to someone who isn't worth it.



  11. 11

    So. Very. Sad.



  12. 12

    UR AN ASS, U SHOULD WAIT UNTIL YOU KNOW IF ITS TRUE OR NOT B4 U GO PEOPLE ALL WORKED UP! DAMN IDIOT!



  13. 13

    R.I.P!!



  14. 14

    Here you go again, you fucking idiot! You have NO common sense, or any sense of decency. Go fuck yourself!



  15. 15

    Do you post anything that wasn't on TMZ first?



  16. 16

    this is such a sad story



  17. 17

    Your thoughts they don't need…. leave them alone dipshit….



  18. 18

    Read this on TMZ about 15 min. ago. I like how in the headline you put question marks. Do you think that will save your ass if you are wrong? I think you need to move on to a different ave. You got too big for britches and you lost all your "sources". Your only means of blogging anymore is copy and paste. The sad thing is that you are making big money off of it and you aren't doing shit to earn it.



  19. 19

    I'm still hoping for a miracle !



  20. 20

    THAT'S PRETTY LOW TO SCAPEGOAT DARLING LIZ SMITH FOR WHEN YOU GET IT WRONG AGAIN, PEREZ DEAR!!!

    Re: stophating09 – You're an idiot. Just because she was taken off of life support doesn't mean she is dead yet. It can take minutes, hours or even days for them to pass once they are off life support. There have been NO reports that she has passed yet.

    This is a true tragedy.
    She is such a nice person, beautiful and talented theater and movie actress, daughter of the legendary Vanessa Redgrave, married to fabulous Liam Neeson and has two young kids with him. True lady, never a trace of a scandal attached to her name.
    God bless her.



  24. 24

    Awww Hell…that is so sad



  25. 25

    OMG I hope shes makes it



  26. 26

    Too sad….
    :(



  27. 27

    The hospital has made no statement. The family has made no statement. It is DISGUSTING to GOSSIP about something so serious as this.



  28. 28

    stop posting this perez, this is sad enough without u having to
    report on it all the time .



  29. 29

    I agree, after yesterday, you think you'd not be posting this until it was confirmed. Very hard on the family and fans. Please be more responsible.

    Re: Black Aggie – me too.



  31. 31

    Re: stophating09 – She's not dead, dude



  32. 32

    So sad….my thoughts & prayers are with her and her family.



  33. 33

    Now this woman is someone I feel sorry for….she is/was a loving wife, a wonderful mother, and a good person….she didn't ask for this. This was a freak accident, and she never got a chance to say goodbye.
    .
    My heart is breaking for her family who never got to say that last "I love you" to her…



  34. 34

    hey perez, why dontcha take up skiing?



  35. 35

    WHY COULDNT THIS BE ANGELINA HOLIE?

    WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? i met natasha one day i bumped into her while turning a corner and she was the nicest person EVER…..

    i just WISH THIS WAS ANGELINA HOLIE BELIEVE THIS WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE WITHOUT THAT WHORE…



  36. 36

    i loved her in the parent trap…soo sadddddddddd



  37. 37

    So sad and tragic…



  38. 38

    Re: emkay1331 – and yet you came here and no doubt read all the posts then decided to bore us with your banter…shut the fuck up



  39. 39

    This was on TMZ, then I told you about it on Twitter… Oh Piggez.

    I hope it's not true. Natasha is a great, talented, classy lady and I wish her and her family the best of luck. Let's give our positive thoughts.



  40. 40

    Oh god. I wish they could wait a week before taking her off.

    P.S. The people DISSING Perez are CELEBRITIES that he has dissed on his site. Thyey're so transparent.



  41. 41

    Being taken off life support could ALSO mean that she is better and able to breathe on her own. I hope that is the case!



  42. 42

    You still have not apologized for jumping on the "RIP" bandwagon. I guess tabloid sites like yours have no journalistic talents to investigate something before shooting off their fat faces. Fess Up Perez… you made a big boo boo.. and now you're trying to back peddle. So if she does RIP what are you going to post? RIP2 Natasha! You're a moroneous person if ever I saw one!



  43. 43

    yeah no shit, let the poor woman and her family have a chance to actually DO something, like pass away, before you start speculating on whether she is or not. You're never the first to report the news, so why start with something as sensitive as this????!!!! Just keep your trap shut unless you have a REAL report, not some conflicting bullshit. It's a disgrace to this tragedy and makes you look like even more of an idiot!!



  44. 44

    ___________________________________________________________________

    THIS IS … HEART-BREAKING!

    MARIO, YOU'RE BEHIND THE 8-BALL ON THIS NEWS, THO'.

    LIZ SMITH AND HER CRONIES ARE REPORTING RIGHT NOW, THAT RICHARDSON (DAUGHTER OF THE GREAT ACTRESS, DAME LYNN REDGRAVE) IS NOW, DECEASED!

  46. 46

    Re: GirlsJustWannaHaveFun – that was nice of you to say, well put and deserving. It really is a tragedy, and it's nice that you honor her with a bit of class.



  47. 47

    Re: stophating09 – I knoww!!!!!! my thoughts exactly! I'm devastated! it's things like this that make me wanna cry even though I don't know them personally



  48. 48

    again, he is just doing his job. reporting what he hears. P is not the only one to post eronious information, at least he didn't post an obit like some other site did. those of you that continue to lamblast P, really now, and here is the age old question…why are you here if you hate him so much?

    Re: LeoNa$ GHo$t
    Hello, Leona's Ghost.

    Would you believe that Jessica Lange is in a hospital right now with broken bones from a falling accident, and Natasha Richardson's husband Liam Neeson co-starred with Jessica in a movie "Rob Roy"? What a coincidence.
    So very sad.



  50. 50

    This is ridiculous. Let's wait for an official statement made by the family.

    It's okay to gossip about someone being pregnant because there is nothing really harmful to it. However, to discuss about someone's death is not ethical and it is disrespectful. Yes it takes a long time to have an official statement in this case, but the family and closest friends (who those "sources" should not be considered as) are in pain. Let's give them time, respect and privacy.



  51. 51

    just shut the hell up Perez. don't say anything until they made the statement.
    these sources are shit, trying to make a quick buck off a wonderful person like Natasha.

    I hope she pulls through. I really hope she does.



  52. 52

    Re: Charmer

    Give Perez a break. All of the major outlets were reporting the same thing. He ran with it because he thought that was the truth at the time. Why not jump on FOX because they ran with the story first!

  53. aj says – reply to this

    HONK if you'd like to side-slap Perez

    i still wanna know WHO SHE IS… where is she even from? what was she in???

    Re: theresalongo – Go to her IMDB page, hell even my 14 yr old niece knows who Natasha Richardson is. She's been in Gothic, Nell, the Parent Trap…



  58. 58

    Re: LeoNa$ GHo$t
    I agree with you.
    Jessica Lange was fabulous in "Frances" about Frances Farmer (Best Actress Oscar nomination), and in "Blue Sky" with Tommy Lee Jones ( Best Actress Oscar nomination), and in "Rob Roy" with Liam Neeson, and in "Tootsie" with Dustin Hoffman (she won an Oscar for this one!).
    And don't forget Michail Baryshnikov. ;-)

  60. 60

    This is truly a tragedy…. Natasha Richardson was a gorgeous woman with a huge talent, who on top of her work in acting was a major supported of charities, like Aids foundations, and did what she could to make the world a better place.

    It's truly disgusting that people would rather bitch and moan about this site's operator, as opposed to honoring her and her memory and writing down well wished comments for her family who could very well be reading this blog as they may want to know what people are saying in regards to the tragedy, in hopes that people ARE in fact talking about how wonderful she was.

    I mourn the loss of Natasha Richardson… I also mourn the loss we've gone through as a society where people really have no sense of common decency.

    If you ARE reading these, Richardson/Neeson/Redgrave clan… My thoughts are with you, and I wish you the strength to make it through this tough time… The loss of Natasha (whether brain dead, or already off life support) is an immeasurable loss for the world. Peace be with you all.



  61. 61

    O gosh it's really sad. I really loved her and her movies. My heart goes out to Liam and their children and their families.

    If I can change that to a bitch slap than I am all for it!!!
    HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK
    Damn that felt good!!!!!!!!!!



  63. 63

    wait, i'm confused. no one else is reporting that she was taken off of life support other than this liz smith chick. shouldn't you CONFIRM someone has died before you post it?!



  64. 64

    This is so sad such a tradgedy, my thoughts and prayers go out to Natasha and her family…. BTW I loved her in The Parent Trap!!!



  65. 65

    I am in the medical field and it is ridiculous that they would take her off life support so soon. The human body is a miracle and they come up with new innovations all the time. I say wait, please. She is a credit to humanity. Give her a chance…Blessing to her and her family!



  66. 66

    is putting it in the form of a question you're way of not reporting erroneous info on this story again……….

    Re: devil_dawg_wife
    Just to let everyone know (since all of us can't work in the healthcare field, in particular, a Neuro ICU):

    Brain death IS death. The moment a patient is declared clinically brain dead by two physicians (two being the typical number for most state regulations), that patient is DEAD. Irregardless if they are on a ventilator (life support). When a brain dead patient is taken off life support (ventilator) they still remain dead.

    This is different than when someone is terminal and on life support and they are taken off (withdrawn from life support). Yes, then a person can live up to two weeks (depending on circumstances), as usually your kidneys fail (as well as your other major organs) due to no hydration, which then brings death.

    Bottom line, what the general public knows about brain injuries and the term "brain death" is typically terribly misinformed. My thoughts go out to Natasha's family, especially children. Very tragic.



  69. 69

    Re: lululovely
    They would take her off the ventilator "so soon" if they knew she was dead (i.e. brain dead). Surprising that this comment came from someone in the 'medical field'; let me guess, are you a phlebotomist?



  70. 70

    'OUR THOUGHT GO OUT TO HER FAMILY' BULLSHIT. they only go out to her family if her family called you right now and said, hey perez, you want to come over and help us pull the plug? we will tell you what happened, you and only you. then your thoughts will be with them. because, up until now, you have be like a male dog in heat ready to hump the first time you can, jumpy out at the wrong things. 'she is dead' no, she is brain dead. they are pulling the plug. all the while, not apologizing and putting the blame on others. and of course, 'thoughts out to her family' 'sad, sad, sad,' you are sad, sad, sad, nothing inside. You and all the other sites waiting to declare Natasha dead. No wait, you are sick



  71. 71

    As of 1:48 pm AST, MSNBC reports: "A family friend told People.com “there is no chance” of recovery. “It is a fact that her heart is beating but she is brain dead,” the unidentified friend told the magazine." So very sad



  72. 72

    Holy Crap!
    That's the girl from the parent trap!
    I love that movie!
    D: RIP Natasha Richardson

    she did NOT die yet >



  73. 73

    Re: justtfax – Well said!



  74. 74

    IS SHE DEAD YET???



  75. 75

    Re: Perez is irrelevant – How can one live for up to 2 weeks when disconnected and they are brain dead? I mean does the brain not tell the heart to beat? I am confused. Would they tube feed her or will she starve too?

  76. Shark says – reply to this


    76

    Here is my take, we are all alive reading this and we will all die someday. But inbetween that there is disgusting news from perez that was never checked for facts and he contintues to get us to visit his site to see his latest post on vanessa.

    I figured it out, he has screwed up and blames other sources and publicists rather than himself. You fucked up and nobody else…you are worse than a rag..the pick one story wrong or right …you just compound it by guessing.
    You are a parasite and a fucking loser mario.

  77. Bytch says – reply to this


    77

    Dude….leave them alone for real. You keep jumping to be the first to update everyone on her death without official confirmation…just like with Jane ….this is starting to really disgust me.

    Re: ~~Equestrianismypassion~~ – Your heart pumps as an involuntary movement and breathing helps it do this. Life support supplies oxygen. Feeding tubes are totally machine controlled feeding vitamin serum into your body. Basically, "life support" means totally living through machines. Its not even living…its having a machine perform basic functions to keep your body alive while the rest of you is not. Sad



  79. 79

    Re: Shark

    Let me ask you this, (anyone) why are you here, if you're having a problem with Perez?

    Honkity honk!



  81. 81

    You know someone said this a few days ago……Why do good mature actresses like Natasha Richardson have to go through things like this and trashy, immature, asses like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, stupid ass Heidi Montag still around?

    It's not fair……AT ALL!!!! :(



  82. 82

    Very Sad



  83. 83

    I understand privacy, I understand having to deal, but what I don't understand it two publicists who won't act knowing that everyone on the 'inside' as Liz Smith put it as so devasated. The circus going on outside is not right. Is there not someone that can put this circus to rest. Perez did just fine reporting and correcting what he sees/hears; he quoted the source, he did the job we expect him to do. What needs to be done is someone working for these people to shed some light and let the family have some rest from the paps.



  84. 84

    I AM GOING TO START MY OWN BLOG CALLED "NOTPEREZHILTON" AND i AM GOING TO COPY AND PASTE ALL OF HIS STUFF TO MINE, AND MY OWN STUFF. THEN i WILL NOT BAN PEOPLE WHO OFFEND ME, i WILL CHECK, CHECK AND TRIPLE CHECK TO MAKE SURE A STORY IS ACCURATE. I WILL NOT LUST OVER YOUNG BOYS AND I WILL NOT HATE ON YOUNG GIRLS, i WILL NOT PUT SILLY IMMATURE CRAYON DRAWINGS ON EVERYONE. aND IN THE PERFECT WORLD WE COULD ALL INTERACT TOGETHER, AND i WILL TAKE IT TO HEART IF SOMEONE THINKS I DID SOMETHING WRONG, I WILL LISTEN. i WILL NOT FEATURE THE FREAKS THAT ARE MADONNA OR ANGELINA. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY I CAN DO IT WITH INTEGRITY AND CLASS! lET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF A BLOG LIKE THAT. tHANKS



  85. 85

    Re: Perez is irrelevant – irregardless isn't a word…



  86. 86

    its official

    “Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

    this is a statement from their publicist ALAN NIEROB



  87. 87

    so very sad..



  88. 88

    I just saw on the news that she died! This is so sad!!!! My heart goes out to Liam and the two young boys!



  89. 89

    it is now confirmed that she has passed away… so sad



  90. 90

    Holy God. I am in shock. I didn't know her personally, but Jesus did I LOVE her work. This is incredibly sad.



  91. 91

    She was taken off life support. God bless and Rest in Peace.



  92. 92

    shes dead.



  93. 93

    Re: ~~Equestrianismypassion~~
    I was stating the circumstance of people being taken off life support when they are NOT brain dead; sorry for the confusion. You are right, when you are brain dead, you cannot live off a ventilator for up to two weeks, as you are dead.



  94. 94

    Re: sincerity

    Appreciate that, I should have used "regardless". Just looked it up on dictionary.com and found that I have been using it incorrectly for a long time. Thanks.

    How truly sad. Such a beautiful women and of course it hurts to know that her husband Liam and children have lost such a vibrant wife and mother - her smile could melt an iceberg. May God give them lots of strength to manage through this extremely difficult time.
