We really hope this story doesn’t turn out to be true. RadarOnline is reporting that Tila Tequila was just released from hospital yesterday after suffering from a brain aneurysm and a drug overdose! Sources told the site that she had to be admitted last week because: “Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation, broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out.” The story gets even worse, as the source added, “Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance and she was taken to the hospital.”
Apparently, Tila has been in two hospitals in the space of one week, because she — according to the same sources — had a brain aneurysm in the middle of the night and because of it, panicked and took two bottles of unspecified heavy prescription drugs, which led to her overdosing. She has supposedly been in the intensive care unit all week and still can’t speak properly. If this story is true, then it’s completely horrifying and we wish her all the luck with recovery.
Just reading about the battles between Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain really tires us out. They’re so explosive! We’re going to hear a lot more from them after they read about this story put together by The Fix. Maer Roshan first interviewed Courtney back in 2010 and has kept in touch with her ever since. That interview was published last May, and now it’s being transformed into an e-book called Courtney Comes Clean that reveals a whole lot of other information about the troubled sometimes-singer. This includes some truly shocking details from Frances’ sealed deposition against her mother from 2009, and more drug-related confessions from Courtney. Read more…
George Clooney, what’s it like it be so handsome and so gallant? It’s exhausting, right? George may have hit up the SAG Awards yesterday to represent for The Descendants, but he still made a point to stick up for friend Demi Moore while he was at it. “It’s always troubling when people you know and people who you care about end up going through a difficult time,” Clooney told The Insider on the red carpet. before lambasting the decision to release Demi Moore’s 911 call to the public. “I think it’s a stupid thing,” he explained. “I think it’s stupid for anyone, whether they’re celebrated or not, I don’t believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that’s my opinion.” Man, we want George Clooney to defend us to the press; he does it with such class.
Moore’s call, placed by a friend from the star’s L.A. home last Monday, was stripped of any references to drugs; some allege, however, that the call indicates Demi’s daughter Rumer Willis was present at the time of the crisis. Said Clooney, “What’s happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it’s not just about people here, it’s about everybody. There won’t be any version of privacy. So it’s going to be a tricky thing.” It is a chilling thought that anyone’s 911 call could be made public. Celebrity emergencies aside, do you know many people get things stuck in their butts and have to be rushed in for a humiliating E.R. visit? Or, um, so we’ve heard.
Demi Moore is clearly lucky to be alive….though she probably doesn’t feel lucky if when she thinks about all the questions everyone has for her. We honestly though things couldn’t get worse after hearing about Moore’s alleged seizure and ambulance ride on Monday, but boy, did Demi Moore’s 911 call, placed by a friend from Moore’s home, prove us wrong. When the 911 dispatcher asked if Demi was breathing properly on the newly released call, Demi’s friend reports, “No, not so normal…[She's] shaking…burning up,” later adding that the actress “has been having some issues lately.” A statement which seems like something a 911 operator could have just assumed from the phone call.
The phone call also makes us question reports that Demi’s seizure was brought on by using nitrous oxide. Says her friend during the call, “She smoked something. It’s not marijuana…It’s similar to incense. She seems to be having convulsions.” Good lord, what? Can you…can you smoke a whip-it? Did Demi accidentally smoke actual incense and this is what happens? Please don’t smoke anything that isn’t designed to be smoked, girl! No wait….just don’t smoke anything at all! That being said, we really can’t tell if this news is worse than whip-its or not. Better? Basically the same, but shrouded in a new layer of mystery and awfulness?
Demi Moore: now is the time to just do you. And only do you. According to E! Online, Moore has allegedly left Sherman Oaks Hospital in L.A. after being admitted on Monday; the Margin Call actress reportedly received treatment after suffering seizure-like symptoms, a crisis which prompted a late night 911 call. The site also confirms that Ashton Kutcher will be returning to the city from his trip to Brazil today, which begs the question: would you be helped or hindered by a visit from Ashton Kutcher after having a seizure? Think about it. You don’t have to answer right away.
While we’re glad to hear Demi is almost certainly recuperating on the couch in her Forever Lazy, TMZ alleges that the 911 call made on her behalf must be edited to remove drug references before being released to the public. The L.A. City Attorney allegedly recommended that the clip be redacted to protect Moore’s patient confidentiality. Sounds like a reasonable, ethical decision…that implies all sorts of bummer scenarios about Demi’s hospitalization. If true, the City Attorney’s decision could lend credence to the claim that Moore was using nitrous oxide (or some other recreational substance) prior to her medical emergency. So…maybe hold off on that visit for a little while, Ashton. Everyone loves a Edible Arrangement, is all we’re saying.
Brooke Mueller’sÂ troubles with the law and with drugs are far from over. Charlie Sheen‘s ex was arrested in Aspen as the weekend rolled in, on counts of suspicion of felonyÂ cocaine possession and misdemeanor third-degree assault. She allegedly assaulted a woman at a nearby bar, and then carried on to a nightclub (ironically called Escobar) to party. That’s where cops found her and dragged her out.Â Brooke was released on $11,000 bond the next day, which Sheen supposedly coughed up. Does this mean another round of rehab?
Say what you want about Courtney Love (Lord knows we have!), but the woman calls it like she sees it. Granted, she might be seeing it through a milky haze with her bosoms falling out of her top at the Hugo premiere after party, but still! “[She's] further down the line than I was,” Love allegedly tells Details about Lindsay Lohan’s substance abuse issues, explaining that she’s acting as Lindsay’s sobriety coach, “because nobody else will.” Wow. Huh. Well, can’t argue with the facts, we guess!
Courtney has talked before about her role as “junkie Auntie Mame” for Lohan, telling addiction and recovery issues website The Fix how she advised Lilo following one of her several arrests, even talking phone calls from Michael Lohan. Says Courtney, “I went up to Lindsay’s room one time and there was a show on called 101 Celebrity Oops and I am like every other one, you know — boobs out, legs everywhere, throwing s–t at Madonna, you know whatever. I’m like ‘Lindsay, look! Drugs are bad!” Wow, this whole relationship sounds like a real-life episode of Scared Straight! Except with way more exposed areolae.
We all remember where we were that fateful day in September when Ali Lohan stepped out with her new face. But despite the drastic and undeniable transformation, those close to 17-year-old claim that the change was all natural. Her agents at Next Model Management attributed the new look to “a growth spurt”. Hmmm, do lips and cheek bones go through growth spurts, too?
But now Ali herself is opening up about the controversy, insisting that she never got near the knife. “It’s stupid,” she told the New York Post‘s Page Six Magazine. “I don’t listen to it. It’s absolutely not true. I was cracking up. Because, like, when would I do that? I’m 17 years old,” For a start, she claims that her mother, Dina, would never allow such a thing. “I would need my mother’s signature, and do you think my mom would ever sign off on that? No!” (Wait, is this the same mother that goes out partying with her fresh-out-of-rehab daughter, Lindsay?)
But it’s got to be rough trying to make it as a young model in Hollywood, with temptations at every turn. In fact, the littlest Lohan admits to being offered drugs on occasion. But luckily she remembers her D.A.R.E. training … and her big sister. “I just say no,” she says. “I’m lucky enough that I had my sister to learn from. I’ve seen people do it to her, so I’ve learned to be like, ‘That’s stupid, no.’ ” That’s really awesome Lindsay taught her that! But let’s hope Lilo didn’t teach her about lying, too.
Miley Cyrus’ very unusual birthday toast last week was captured on camera last week, procured by The Daily. When pal Kelly Osbourne pointed out it was a Bob Marley cake, Miley announced on the mic, “You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f—ing weed.” There you have it guys — the big pothead admission, on tape, no less!
That’s also when Kelly, equally tongue-in-cheek, added, “I thought salvia was your problem, Miley.” They were obviously making fun of that viral video of Miley smoking a bong just last year on her 18th birthday. Although that, as Kelly helpfully reminded her, was apparently filled with salvia. That’s two consecutive birthdays linked with the green stuff. Forget “Happy 19th birthday, Miley,” we’re just going with Happy 420 now.
PS. What do you say we start a “You know you’re a stoner when …” series dedicated to Miley? Best birthday present ever?
Walk this wayâ€¦to the O.R. to get dental surgery. In a call to the Today show’s Matt Lauer this morning, Steven Tyler denies that his recent nasty fall was the result of drug use, blaming instead a bout with food poisoning. â€œI started to get sick, and I just fell on my face. I just passed out,â€ he explained. When Lauer pressed him, asking, “But you’re clean and sober, that’s not the issue?” Tyler confirmed, “No, it’s not the issue.” It’s never a good sign when the lesser of two evils is severe food poisoning, but considering how intense Steven Tyler’s drug problem used to be, we’ll take it!
Steven Tyler’s shower fall earlier this week left the Aerosmith singer bloody, bruised and missing two teeth, which sort of works for his look, but still! â€œI get that people think that,â€ Tyler says, referring to people’s assumptions about his drug use. â€œIt still bothers me a little, but itâ€™s something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life.â€ Hmm, could Tyler’s fall have something to do with the fact that he weighs 85 lbs soaking wet, not including all those scarves? The second his hair got wet, the man wouldn’t be able to lift his head anymore. That’s must be what happened. Case closed!
