Late actress Lisa Robin Kelly (who played the older sister in That 70's Show and died recently in rehab) spoke out before her death after being arrested on assault charges in 2012. In this interview on ABC, she makes the astonishing admission that she began “abusing alcohol after losing a baby”.

The actress had been in the news for arrests relating to driving under the influence, and had to endure public scrutiny of her mugshots and speculation about her private life.
