‘Bond’ actress Tanya Roberts is still alive, according to her rep, but is in the ICU and ‘not doing very well’

Summary List PlacementBond actress Tanya Roberts is alive, despite her spokesperson mistakenly reporting that the actress had died Sunday.
Roberts’ longtime representative, Mike Pingel, confirmed to Insider Monday that the actress is alive, but is still hospitalized in the ICU unit and is “not doing very well.”
“It’s very dire. It’s good news, but, yet, not good news,” Pingel added.
The actress’s rep explained the mistake on “a miscommunication” between himself, Roberts’ longtime boyfriend, Lance O’Brien, and Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
“There was a miscommunication when I called to confirm her passing,” Pingel told Insider, adding that he believed that O’Brien had confirmed that Roberts had died when in fact “it wasn’t really confirmed fully.”
“It was not verified and I did not know that,” he added.
Roberts was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on Christmas Eve following a walk with her dogs and was subsequently placed on a ventilator as she was having trouble breathing. She did not have COVID-19.
During a Monday interview with Inside Edition, O’Brien, learned that the 65-year-old actress was alive. Amid the video interview, O’Brien paused to receive a phone call from Cedars Sinai.
“Now, you’re telling me that she’s alive? Oh, thank the Lord. Thank God,” O’Brien can be heard saying during the interview.
“The hospital did call him at 10 a.m. this morning to confirm that she had not passed,” Pingel confirmed to Insider Monday.
O’Brien told Inside Edition that he was not allowed to be at Roberts’ bedside due to coronavirus protocols until “what he thought were her final hours.” Still, the actress’s rep said O’Brien was with her on Sunday night.
Previously, Pingel confirmed to outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter who was the first to report the news, that the actress had died. He even released a statement, which read:
“I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. To say she was an angel would be at the top of the list. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart. She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them.”
On Sunday, Pingel also shared a photo of himself on Instagram alongside Roberts with the caption “Devastated.”
