There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that it’s our first post of 2011! The bad news is that it’s about someone going to rehab. Any guesses who the celebrity is?
Hint: He was just spotted photo bombing four Oompah Loompahs right around New Years Eve. Yes, it’s a he, and that was just one of the signs that he needed to get to rehab. That male celebrity is… [Photo: Getty Images]
David Arquette! He admitted himself for alcoholism, among other issues (not including drugs), over the holiday weekend. TMZ reports that he went in with a bang, taking those photo ops with the Oompahs into account. The story is that David partied it up at Beacher’s Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel on NYE before checking in. RadarOnline says his rep has confirmed he’s at the Betty Ford Center. Hi ex Courteney Cox has released a statement to People, saying, “I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him.”
Arquette’s been on the TMI train talking about everything from his post-coital sob sessions to sex with everyone’s favorite rebound, Jasmine Waltz. He even told Howard Stern that he believed he was having a nervous breakdown. “I’ve been drinking a lot…” said Arquette at the time. So maybe this is a good thing? Starting the year getting help and getting sober. We’ll have more details as the story develops, but we do sincerely wish him luck.
