Brittany Murphy's Husband Speaks, Loopily

Simon Monjack, the mysterious husband of dead actress Brittany Murphy, is planning to sue Warner Bros., claiming that when the studio fired Murphy from a movie, it caused her heart attack two weeks later. The Daily Beast landed an unpleasant interview.

News of the lawsuit, which is likely mostly insane and has no tether to reality, is just one part of the icky interview, which is mostly Monjack defending his honor and bragging about his wealth. There are occasional outbursts from Murphy's mother, a Monjack supporter, who was apparently listening in the background. There's also some stuff about her health problems ("She had also had oral cancer a few years earlier") that's plainly depressing. Whatever did or didn't happen here, the important thing is how it ended: sadly.
