The Original Wednesday Addams, Dies at 64
Lisa Loring, a well-known actress who played Wednesday Addams on the first TV version of The Addams Family in the 1960s, has died. Her daughter, Vanessa Foumberg, told The Hollywood Reporter that she died from complications from a stroke caused by high blood pressure.
She told the press, “She went peacefully with both of her daughters holding her hands.” She had turned 65. When you have high blood pressure, your arteries can burst or get blocked, which can cause a stroke, which can kill you.
During a stroke, brain cells die because they aren’t getting enough oxygen. This makes it hard to talk, move around, and do other basic things. Strokes can also put your life in danger.
When the blood pressure gets to 180/120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or higher, this is called a “hypertensive crisis,” and it can cause a heart attack, a stroke, or something else that kills.
A hypertensive crisis is usually caused by a break in blood pressure medication, a break in heart medications like beta blockers, interactions between medications, or sometimes a tumor of the adrenal gland called pheochromocytoma.
Most strokes cause numbness in the limbs, trouble speaking, and changes in how you see things. The most important signs of the life-threatening condition are sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of control and coordination, and trouble understanding speech.
Loring married Farrell Foumberg, her childhood sweetheart when she was 15 years old. They had a daughter. After a year, the marriage ended. In 1981, Loring got married to actor Doug Stevenson, who was her second husband. He worked on the CBS/Procter & Gamble soap opera Search for Tomorrow under a contract. Stevenson gave Loring a second daughter, and the two were married until 1983 when they broke up.
In 1987, Loring married Jerry Butler, who was in adult movies. They met on the set of the adult movie Traci’s Big Trick, which was made in 1987. Loring worked on the movie as a makeup artist and an uncredited writer. In the years that followed, she told Butler that she didn’t like how he kept doing pornography, so he started doing it behind her back.
In the 1990s, Butler told Dateline NBC that he was “addicted to the lifestyle.” He was ashamed of his secret behavior and how it affected his marriage. Later, they were on the Sally Jessy Raphael Show, where they talked again about how Butler’s pornography was hurting their marriage.
Butler and Loring got a divorce in 1992. That same year, he started to leave the hardcore industry, which seems to have been his choice. For many years, he was hardly seen in public. Loring married Graham Rich for the fourth time in 2003. They stopped living together in 2008 and got a divorce in 2014.
