FEED THE GIRL!    

TMZ is not the "last to report this" - People still doesn't have it on their website at this moment. Also, even if she had been sent to the hospital immediately after the accident occured, it's likely the end result would have been the same. Head injuries are not often treatable. Very sad story.

My prayers are with Liam Neeson, his and Natasha's son's, her mother, Vanessa Redgrave and all others who loved her. She's healthy again with God. I loved her as an actress and knew Liam and her marriage was one of a kind. Those are few and far between. God be with you all! ~ Janet

I rarely ever post anything like this on a site when something like this happens, but Natasha Richardson was a beautiful woman with a great talent. I'm sad that her dear sons and husband will no longer have her as a part of their lives. I had hoped that the reports of her head injury had been overstated and that the reports would improve as time went on. It seems so tragic that something so insignificant that we've all done before, falling down, could take a life so quickly!

Booby,

I think it will be either Natasha's mother due to this loss or Hugh Hefner because of his "loss." What do I win?

This is such a terrible loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and close friends during this difficult time.
I hope TMZ and other media give the family space and time to heal.

I heard this at 2pm today in a Canadian newsroom and that the statement would be released later on but It ended my day right there. HORRIBLE TRAGEDY!!! To think that I posted it on my Facebook status hours ago as R.I.P and nobody cared hurt even more. Now everyone is bombarding me with comments and I told em "Go to TMZ" I am meditating and praying for this sweet lady I met during the premiere of the Parent Trap with Lindsay Lohan. Here in Canada, we have stiff fines for motorcycle helmets and kids helmet on summer bikes. Do we need helmets on ski slopes now Prime Minister Harper?
