Career

Lisa Robin Kelly made her debut in a 1992 episode of Married... with Children entitled "Kelly Doesn't Live Here Anymore". She appeared again on Married... with Children in 1997 in the episode "Breaking Up Is Easy to Do". She has also appeared in shows such as Murphy Brown, Charmed, The X-Files, Sisters, and Silk Stalkings, as well as straight-to-video and TV movies, such as Amityville: Dollhouse, Late Last Night and the movie Jawbreaker.

Kelly won the part of Laurie, the promiscuous elder sister of Eric Forman on That '70s Show. After three years, she left the show; it was explained that her character had left to attend beauty school.

She briefly returned to the show in the fifth season in four episodes, but was replaced with Christina Moore in the sixth season. In an interview with ABC News she admitted that "With That '70s Show I was guilty of a drinking problem, and I ran."[1]

Since her departure from the show, Kelly appeared in a 2005 film called The Food Chain: A Hollywood Scarytale.

Legal troubles

In August 2010, Kelly was arrested in North Carolina on a charge of driving while intoxicated.[2] In November 2010, she plead guilty, was fined, and was sentenced to 12 months unsupervised probation.[3]

On March 31, 2012, Kelly was arrested at 12:50 AM on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse, and was released on $50,000 bail.[4][5] After being released on bail, Kelly went onto her Facebook account to ask for money and to claim that her boyfriend, John Michas's injuries were self-inflicted. She later made public statements claiming that she was set up by her boyfriend who injured himself in an effort to frame the actress as a domestic abuser.[6] On April 4, 2012, she tweeted that she is "relieved the nightmare is over".[7] On May 12, 2012, TMZ reported that the LA County DA declined to file charges.[8]
