Tanya Roberts isn't dead after all, and things are getting weird.
On Sunday, Tanya's Rep, Mike Pingel, reported her death, saying he got the news from her "husband", Lance O'Brien.
Well, it turns out Lance isn't Tanya's husband, but her longtime boyfriend. And yesterday, he was being interviewed by "Inside Edition" about her death, when he got a call from the hospital telling him she was STILL ALIVE.
He told the person on the other end, quote, "Now, you are telling me she's alive? Oh thank the lord, thank God!" . . . and then he broke down. (It's a weird moment. I don't want to judge, but his reaction is just kind of strange.)
After that, TMZ spoke with both Lance and Tanya's rep, whose name is Mike Pingel.
Lance told them that he went to the hospital Sunday after doctors called and told him Tanya was fading fast, and wasn't going to make it.
When he got there she opened her eyes and tried to grab him, then closed them again. He apparently ASSUMED she was dead, and left the hospital without speaking to medical staff.
Mike says he picked Lance up at the hospital, and Lance told him, quote, "She died in my arms." (???)
In yet another interview, Lance said a hospital worker told him that Tanya opening her eyes was just a reflex, and that "for all intents and purposes she was gone."
He also said she's since been taken off life support, and there's no chance she's gonna make it.
Tanya collapsed on Christmas Eve after walking her dogs. She was put on a ventilator because she was having trouble breathing, but she reportedly does NOT have the coronavirus.
