Brittany Murphy’s Mother Can’t Cope With Her Grief

Brittany Murphy’s mother admits that she pretends her daughter is still alive.

Sharon Murphy cannot cope with losing Brittany, who died from pneumonia last year, and her and son-in-law Simon Monjack, who passed away only five months after.

Sharon tries to pretend the tragedy never happened, saying, “It’s beyond strange. I don’t have answers for it. Sometimes just in order to function, I pretend it didn’t happen.”

Sharon used to live with her daughter and son-in-law in their Beverly Hills home. She still lives there, and explained to In Touch Weekly magazine, “I feel their presence here. It’s comforting.”

“I’m always remembering times with her. She would always say that we grew up together, and that’s true. We were so close, and such great friends,” Sharon continued.

Sharon is trying to cope by working on a memoir about her daughter, as well as working on the Brittany Murphy Foundation which promotes the arts programs for underprivileged children.

“A portion of the proceeds that I receive from the book will be donated to charity,” Sharon said.

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
