This is a discussion on Gen Xer from that "That 70s Show" Dead within the Generation X Forum forums, part of the The Generations category; 'That '70s Show' Star Lisa Robin Kelly Dead at 43 | Yahoo! TV - Yahoo! TV...
WTF? I was expecting it to be Red.
What generation would her character have been, given that the series is set in the '70s?
Sad how drugs and alcohol have celebrities dropping like flies (probably lots of ordinary people too, just don't hear about them.) It is awful seeing how many people struggle with addiction.
"She told ABC News that her drinking problems stemmed from a miscarriage. "I had lost a baby," she said. "As a result of that, I lost it. I lost everything and I was abusing alcohol."
That breaks my heart
Not to generalized people, but she's definitely an Xer.
I suspect we're more drunk and drugged out than the generations before or after us.
We had the level of supervision of our grandparents and the drugs of our kids.
I had to quit drinking a couple of years ago. I had somehow managed to become a full-blown drunk.
Anyhow, I'm fine now. But stories like this... they make me very sad.
Wow, just picked up on this. That's sad. She was the same age as my younger brother, a year behind me. She was great on that show, I watched it all the time. Brought back a lot of memories.
