Alexis Arquette Dead

Alexis Arquette Dead at 47

Actress-singer Alexis Arquette, whose TV work included guest stints on Roseanne, Friends and Californication, died Sunday morning in the presence of her family and friends, TMZ is reporting.

Arquette’s resume also included the films Threesome (1994) and The Wedding Singer (1998), the latter of which found her playing a Boy George impersonator, as well as Season 6 of VH1’s reality show The Surreal Life.

Arquette, the sister of actors Rosanna, Patricia and David, lent visibility to the transgender community long before Caitlyn Jenner arrived on the scene. She documented her transition from male to female in the 2007 film Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother. 

An exact cause of death is not known, but she reportedly had been battling an illness.

    ““Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am,” Richmond reportedly wrote on Facebook”

    My understanding is that he preferred male pronouns before his death. He will be greatly missed.

    Died after battling HIV for 29 years. It’s good she lasted that long. RIP and condolences.

    But you know, she walked on the wild side. I started out in Hollywood 35 years ago, a time when all the gay guys who were after my straight a**, sexually harassing me at work, and inviting me to gay orgies at the “bath houses” where they were having sex with lots of unknown partners every night. Amil nitrate was big, along with coke and alcohol. I didn’t swing that way, and when I google those guys now (writers, producers, directors), they’re all dead. Heck even the “moral standards people at CBS were all gay doing that stuff. Glad I didn’t bend over to get a better job in Hollywierd or I’d probably be dead too. Hollywierd is a very sick society. Face the truth people, the place is an ugly whore with a face-job and lots of makeup.
