How sad. She found out 6 months ago about the cancer and is now gone. Prayers to the family. Just sad.

Sorry to hear it. I enjoyed that show as a little kid. I figured Mackenzie Phillips would be the first one of them to kick the bucket.

So sad. So talented. Missed you since the show went off the air. Cringed sometimes when more attention went to your "kids" for off-screen problems than went to the show for the quality of everyone's work, and all interviews seemed to be dedicated only to that. RIP, Bonnie. Know that your fans recognized how talented you were at your craft.

Sorry to hear that, R.I.P.

Who at KMZ is so clueless and classless to put the Hollywood Hooters headline on the same page as a death announcement?
