For many years it has been reported that Ben Affleck has suffered from addiction issues. In 2001 he spend time at a rehab center in Malibu due to drinking and allegedly other drugs, but since then things had been quiet. He opened up about living his life sober and being a father to his children, things like that.
According to reports Ben’s drinking had started back up again this past year and it put even more of a strain between Ben and Jennifer Garner’s relationship. They have since announced that they are going to try again with their marriage, but it did a number on them.
Yesterday Ben wrote a post on his official Facebook page announcing that he completed another rehab stay where he went just after the Oscars to focus on his health and addiction issues.
I know that there are people out there who are rolling their eyes at this post. Simply because Ben is a celebrity and all of that stuff. Everyone hates celebrities right now in case you forgot.
Personally, I think that this is a big step. Talking about addiction is never easy, admitting you are powerless over something is probably one of the hardest things in the world. He didn’t have to share his story but he did and maybe just by this one post, someone can feel as though they aren’t alone in their addiction and get help.
Good for you Ben for coming out and talking about this. I hope that you continue to find happiness that isn’t at the bottom of a bottle.
Eliza Dushku, bravo. That is really all that I can say. I give this woman so much credit for opening up about her drug addiction and alcoholism. The fact that she never even spoke about it before until this moment? I give her so much credit for working through her addiction struggles.
Today (March 7th) Eliza spoke at the NH Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness.
One of the most powerful parts of this speech in my opinion was her saying, “I loved the first time I took a drug because I loved how it made me feel, I loved the way it made me not feel and I didn’t have to feel. It was fun and I loved it until it wasn’t”.
That is some real life feelings.
I have to give Eliza a lot of credit, I know I said that earlier but this is brave. She is using her platform for an amazing reason.
Check out the full speech below, it is filled with a lot of great stuff.
Looks like Khloe needs some attention now that Kim has stolen all of the spotlight due to her crazy wedding. She needed to do something to remind people that she is the wild and fun one. This doesn’t show that though, right? I mean a lot of people can say that it isn’t a real guy so it shouldn’t be a big deal. People will also go crazy saying everyone should own a guy, whatever. That isn’t even what I am trying to write about.
One thing that I don’t like about this picture is the fact that teenage girls looks up to Khloe. Khloe is easily the most down to earth one out of the entire Kardashian crowd. If I was to like one of them, it would be her. That simple. Posting something like this and making it look cool isn’t good for teenagers to see, in my opinion at least. Especially with all the gun violence that they have been exposed to recently.
You know that right now Kris Jenner is losing her mind because of this too, not the best look for a family who won’t admit to being founded by a sex tape. Yeah, I am talking to you Kim and Ray-J.
I just think that she should address that this isn’t a cool thing to do, drinking and playing with guns can lead to terrible things. Yup, that is my take on this whole thing.
What do you think about it? Do you think that people are going too far bashing this picture or was it a mistake posting it?
Selena Gomez went to rehab last month … and sources connected with the singer say she blames Justin Bieber for her predicament. We’ve learned Gomez went to The Meadows in Arizona for 2 weeks of treatment. Sources say Selena went for a combination of problems, including alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien. She’s also addicted to Justin Bieber. We’re told Selena’s decision was largely based on “that crazy boy” — aka Bieber. Selena blames a lot of her problems on the excesses she was exposed to by being around Bieber and his buddies. Sources close to Gomez tell us … people in Selena’s camp went ballistic when they found out she was hanging out again with Justin … and saw photos of her joyriding with him on Segways. We’re told that was the final straw — she checked into rehab immediately after that.
The 2-week program at The Meadows is called DAWN … specifically designed for people between 18 and 26. DAWN specializes in substance dependence, trauma, family dynamics, mental health and relapse prevention.
We’re told Selena is not getting outpatient help now nor is she in therapy
So obviously this is one of the biggest new stories in celebrity gossip at the moment for many reasons. Selena Gomez has always been like the white swan of former Disney stars, the one that could do no wrong. It also shines a bad light on Justin Bieber which is something that everyone wants to hear about right now.
What should we have expected though, right? In a previous post I wrote about how all of Justin Bieber’s illegal activity doesn’t make Selena look too good. It also makes sense as to why she is hanging out with her old good friend Demi so much lately too. They have both been through some shit. I guess Selena should feel bad now that she left poor Demi hanging when she went to rehab.
All that I can say is that this is not a good look for Selena. She apparently isn’t doing anything to keep her sobriety or anything in check either. No outpatient care, no therapy, nothing. Hanging out with someone as wise as Demi can only help so much. All of these reports of Lupus and stuff, that just isn’t cool. Unless she really has it?
This also makes sense why she cancelled her Australian tour, right? Leaving your fans hanging by saying you are tired when in reality you are just partying with Bieber, not a cool move.
We can only hope that Selena smartens up and stays away from Bieber, he is obviously no good. We don’t need another Chris Brown, Rihanna type relationship for young people to look up to.
Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI early Thursday morning and it wasn’t pretty — cops say Justin was wasted and resisted arrest and cussed the cop out, dropping multiple F bombs … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement tells us … Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn’t end with DUI … he was also busted for resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving on an expired license.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … they believe Justin was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.
According to the police report — obtained by TMZ — cops approached Bieber’s car and they instantly realized he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes. He had a “stupor” look on his face.
The police report says … Bieber was defiant from the get-go, yelling at the cops, “Why the f**k are you doing this?” He also yelled, “What the f**k did I do. Why did you stop me?”
When the officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, “I ain’t got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f**k is this about?” Bieber claimed he wasn’t drunk and coming back from recording music. That’s not true, because we knew he was at a club.
Now the basis for the resisting arrest charge — Before the pat down, as Bieber got out of the car, he “kept going into his pants pocket.” The cop ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, and Bieber initially complied but soon took his hands off the car, turned and then cussed out the cop.The cop then grabbed Justin by the right arm, Justin pulled his arm away, and said, “What the f**k are you doing?”
Is anyone really surprised that Justin Bieber got arrested? I mean it was only a matter of time until he got himself into some serious trouble right? This isn’t just like throwing an egg at a house Bieber, you put your life and the lives of others in some serious danger.
According to TMZ Bieber was pulled over around 4 in the morning and that was when the chaos really started. He got pulled over for going double the speed limit which was 55-60 MPH in a 30 zone. When all this occurred he started to be a disrespectful little shit and then the cops realized he was allegedly drunk and all that other bullshit. From there he was arrested and is now being tested for his BAC.
Let’s just get real for a quick second. Here is a young star, who got too much fame too quick, drinking, driving, and being extremely disrespectful to officer yet he gets arrested. Then you see a celebrity like Paul Walker, who was speeding but had no alcohol in his body at the time, he crashes and dies. Paul Walker who did so much for charity and never took fame for granite, doesn’t seem too fair does it?
Also I can’t wait for Bieber’s team to come out and say he is just a kid, kids make mistakes and all of that fun stuff. Then there will be the Beliebers who are angry at everyone for being mad at Bieber for being an asshole. Finally we will see if Selena Gomez even reacts to this, it makes me wonder since they were apparently getting back together. It really isn’t a good look if you are hanging out with a guy who is clearly doing extremely stupid things.
Bieber is on the path to be the male Lindsay Lohan and I am no psychic but in the future I see many more arrests happening in this young stars future.
Emma Thompson can blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol
So before the Golden Globes I didn’t know too much about Emma Thompson, I heard her name here and there but I didn’t know much about her. Then this happened. This drunk English woman stumbles up on stage holding her heels in one hand and her martini in the other and I fell in love. She then said that the red on her heels were her own blood and threw them behind her back to take the envelope to say who won the fucking award!
Emma was nominated for the Mary Popping movie called Saving Mr.Banks and honestly think that she knew she wasn’t going to win. So instead, Emma decided that she was going to make the absolute best of the Golden Globes. She was going to drink, she was going to present and she was going to steal the show.
Anyway, Emma Thompson is my new favorite person on this planet. I can only hope that she drinks before The Oscars so she can win them too without even getting an award.
If I am not Emma Thompson at 54 then I did something wrong.
