DIED: "Eight Is Enough" star Lani O'Grady, 46, was found dead in her mobile home in Santa Clarita, Calif., on Tuesday. The actress, who played Dick Van Patten's sensible oldest daughter Mary on the ABC hit show from 1977-1981, had drifted away from acting after her stint on the show. The cause of death is under investigation, though no foul play seems apparent. O'Grady was the sister of Don Grady, who played Robbie Douglas on the 1960-1972 comedy "My Three Sons" . . .
