Brittany Murphy’s mom is planning a Tell-All

Brittany Murphy’s mother is set to pay tribute to her late daughter in a new biography.

The Clueless actress passed away in December 2009 from pneumonia, and the tragedy was compounded when her husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack, died just five months later.

Their passings have since been tarred by a series of salacious rumours concerning missing money and claims Murphy’s mother, Sharon, slept in the same bed as her son-in-law after the actress died.

Sharon spoke out to deny the rumours at the time and she is now hoping to silence tabloid gossip about her daughter by telling her story in a new picture book.

In a statement released on what would have been Murphy’s 33rd birthday (10Nov10), she says, “This book will be my way of celebrating and honouring her extraordinary life and career. Brittany was a kind, loving person who enjoyed each day; she was my life. I am looking forward to everyone reading the accurate account about my daughter, her life, loves and career.”

A portion of the book’s proceeds will be donated to charity.

Sharon Murphy miffed over Simon Monjack bed claims

Sharon Murphy is pretty ticked off by some internet reports suggesting that she had sex with her daughter’s husband after she passed away.

TMZ reported yesterday that the coroner’s office claimed that Sharon pointed to Simon Monjack’s bed and referred to one side as hers. Now, she’s disturbed that people put two and two together and come up with four.

TMZ has more:

In a statement, Sharon says, “I am very disturbed that the L.A. Coroners [sic] office continues to release things to the media that are misleading.”

She continues, “The TMZ story with it’s [sic] salacious headline suggesting that my prescious [sic] son-in-law Simon and I slept in bed together, infering [sic] sexual contact is journalism at its lowest.” Sharon also denies there were medications in the house prescribed to a “Sharon Monjack,” as the Coroner’s report states.

It could’ve been completely innocent, right? Or perhaps she was just lonely and sad? Maybe she wanted to take solace with the only person she felt could understand the pain she was suffering. What do you think?

Was Simon Monjack squandering Brittany Murphy’s money?

According to Brittany Murphy’s former business manager, the late actresses husband Simon Monjack, may have squandered her money just before he passed in May.

Accountant Jeffrey Morgenroth tells People that her husband was spending her money like it was going out of style just before his sudden death from pneumonia and anemia (which also killed Murphy).

“There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany's] pension plan and bank account, and all of that’s gone,” Morgenroth tells the magazine. “I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands.”

In just a couple months, Morgenroth says Monjack spent 80% of Brittany’s assets, which leaves Brittany’s mom without much of anything. “She was looking at the pension statement and I said, ‘Look. There are almost no zeros there.’”

Even though the actress left her entire estate to her mother, somehow Monjack was able to get his hands on her money (even though Brittany left him nothing).

So sad!

Could Brittany Murphy & Simon Monjack’s Deaths Be Because Of Mold?

The Department of Public Health has started to investigate the possibility that the deaths of Brittany Murphy & Simon Monjack could be due to mold found in their home.

The mold was found after Brittany’s death but investigators determined it not to be a factor. However, since Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack died on May 23, they are now considering that mold may have actually been a cause.

Brittany Murphy’s mother Sharon finds this whole idea absurd and had this to say about it.

“I have never been personally asked by the coroner or anyone from the Health Department to come and inspect my home for mold,” Sharon told the mag. “In the last eight months, I have been through the most unimaginable events, which no one could ever fathom. I have and will continue to be very cooperative and fully comply with any such request.”

Adding, “It’s absurd that this kind of misinformation is being reported by the media.”

As previously reported on, Simon Monjack died from pneumonia and severe anemia and Murphy’s cause of death was determined to be anemia, pneumonia and multiple drug intoxication (including prescription medications, not illegal drugs) and was officially ruled an accident.

Personally I don’t think mold was a factor, but I guess anything is possible.
