Subject: Some sad news.

Written By: JamieMcBain on 12/30/09 at 8:10 pm

Normally, I don't post sad news, but here goes anyway.

Actress, Zelda Rubinstein, has apparently been taken off life support, after spending time at a hospital recently.

Off hand, I didn't hear about this, until a few minutes ago.

She was one of my favorite things about Poltergeist.

She rocked in her role as Tangina in Poltergeist.

I checked her out on Wikipedia, turns out she's a fellow Picksburgher.  8)

This breaks my heart! I loved her in Poltergeist--the parts I wasn't hiding from--and Teen Witch.  :\'(

Good news, she is not only recoving, but her stay in the hospital, was minor at best.

Apparently, two of her organs, nearly failed, and now she is slowly recovering.

I've always loved her too.  I'm so happy to hear that she's doing better!

I hope she gets healthy enough to be in the next installment of the Poltergeist franchise ..

I wouldn't hold my breath on that, LB.
OTOH, Zelda was a regular in the early years of Picket Fences, it's nice to know she's not headed for the freezer just yet!
(That's how they killed her character off when she left the show). I guess Ray Walston(Judge Bone) will have to wait a bit longer for PF company.

Your Pal,
Doc

Update:

Unfortunately, she passed away, earlier today, at the age of 76.

Rest in peace, Zelda, you will be missed by all.

I'm sorry to read Zelda Rubinstein has passed on. She was great in Poltergeist.
