    I feel terrible for her. Producers for That '70s Show had wanted to make her a full-time regular, but she backed out of her contact, which even then was a sign that something wasn't right in her life. She did that interview with TMZ where she was crying and clearly in a very bad way. Her personal problems had cost her career, and now her life.

    She often turned up in movies and TV series that I loved. She was in one of my favorite X-Files episodes, "Syzygy", playing one half of a pair of hilariously evil Carrie-style girls with telekinetic powers.

    She also uttered the immortal line "Carpet munchers!" in Jawbreaker. It's a line I've mimicked more than a few times.

    There's something very eerie about this shot of her in better times. The background looks dark and ominous. There's the iconic palm tree, always a symbol of the Hollywood Dream. There's something in her eyes, like she's gazing into the future, and fears what's in store for her.

    This is very sad. She was a nice looking girl back when she was still on the show. You wonder what she could've done had she gotten everything together back then.

    Holy crap. It was probably drugs. She was kind of messed up.

    RIP Lisa.

    Alcoholism. She'd apparently had a miscarriage that sent her into a downward spiral.
