Brittany Murphy’s father slams biopic; Joan Rivers moved to private room; Kaley Cuoco’s marriage may be on the rocks

One person who won’t be tuning in Saturday to the Lifetime biopic The Brittany Murphy Story is the late actress’ father. Angelo Bertolotti has been tweeting his displeasure with the movie and its star, Amanda Fuller. She plays the Clueless cutie who died in 2009 at age 32. “My daughter #brittanymurphy would be horrified to know who they chose to play her and how cheap it all is,” he posted about the film, which depicts Murphy as an unstable pill-popper. “#Unauthorized.” In a statement, Bertolotti calls the project “trashy” and “completely untrue.”
