Brittany Murphy's husband keeps talking
The husband of Brittany Murphy is talking to anyone and everyone about his wife's death.
Simon Monjack has already given two interviews in the
two days after wife Brittany Murphy was found dead on the bathroom floor. On Monday, Monjack responded to rumors he himself sent Brittany on a
downward spiral, telling Access Hollywood, "I don't know why anyone would think that. She found love. We found love. Brittany didn't get to where Brittany was with anyone
controlling her… Brittany was Brittany."
Today Monjack sat down with People and addressed some of the rumors that have already sprung up around his wife's untimely death.
About Brittany being anorexic: "These rumors that she was anorexic? It's crazy -- she was slim, but that was her natural physique. She tried to gain weight but had one of those metabolisms -- a high metabolism -- but enjoyed food as much as anyone. I wish I could show all the receipts from the take out restaurants."
About him not wanting an autopsy done on Brittany's body: "My initial reaction to the autopsy was -- they're going to cut her open -- I couldn't bear it. That would break her mother, but we realized we needed to know. I look forward to getting the results."
About the public's view of him as a sleazy conman: "So many people have their views of us, but they never met us or sat down with us. I'm not perfect, but I don't think anyone is... I am feeling beyond devastated. I was in love with Brittany and Brittany with me."
About Brittany's heart murmur and the meds found at her bedside: "She was on herbal remedies that wouldn't speed up her heart. There was nothing here that could endanger her; there was prescription medication in the house for her female time and some cough syrup. That was it."
Does he think Brittany died of an overdose? "I can get rid of that one right now."
Let's back up. He doesn't believe that she died of an overdose and there was only medication for "her female time" and some cough syrup? Allow us to re-list the complete pharmacy of drugs found at Brittany's bedside, prescribed under her name and those of her mother, Monjack, and according to the coroner's report multiple other names:
Topamax (an anti-seizure medication also used to prevent migraines), Methylprednisolone (an anti-inflammatory drug), Fluoxetine (for depression), Klonopin (for anxiety), Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar medication), Ativan (for anxiety), Vicoprofen (a pain reliever, cross between Vicodin for pain and ibuprofen for inflammation), Propranolol (for hypertension, also used to prevent heart attacks), Biaxin (an antibiotic), Hydrocodone (a powerful pain medication) and miscellaneous vitamins.
Most women simply turn to Midol during their "female time," not opiates.
Despite all of Monjack's talk -- and his is doing an awful lot of talking for someone supposedly deep in mourning -- there are still more questions than answers.
