For Serious or For Show?
Earlier today we learned that troubled actor David Arquette checked himself out of rehab after 3 weeks of treatment and right now we learn that the more troubled actor Charlie Sheen has committed himself to 3 months of rehab treatment. As you may recall, Sheen checked himself into rehab on Friday after he was famously hospitalized the morning after a 36-hour drug-fueled porno party at his home. I believe this 3 month stint in rehab will be his most significant voluntary commitment to his rehabilitation. More »

Dude … you’ve got to be in serious trouble if Lindsay Lohan is voicing concern over your health and safety … that is the position that troubled actor Charlie Sheen finds himself in these days. As you may recall, we awoke Thursday morning to the news that Charlie Sheen was rushed to the emergency room with “stomach pains” after it was later revealed that Sheen had been on a 36-hour drug-fueled party bender with a group of porn stars at his home. Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Charlie Sheen checked himself in to rehab. In light of all of this crazy drama, L. Lo has reportedly expressed to friends that she is worried about Sheen.

Oh, Aaron … again? Aaron Carter, the younger former pop-star brother of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, checked himself in to rehab this month in order to deal with his ongoing addiction problems. As you may recall, Carter announced his engagement to his girlfriend Maile Hochuli last April and then in May went on the record about Lindsay Lohan‘s problems with the law (he was all for her harsh punishment). Today, the focus is back on Aaron … and his new stint in rehab. More »

Third Time's The Charm?
Troubled Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean has checked himself in to a rehab treatment facility for the third time this week because, according to sources, A.J. was “out of control” and was not able to control his substance abuse problems. As you may know, A.J. and the rest of the Backstreet Boys are due to go on tour with fellow boyband New Kids on the Block but it sounds like he has to take care of his personal problems before that can happen.

She Ain't Ready
It appears that Lindsay Lohan is not quite ready to live in the real world again because she has decided to extend her stay in rehab a few days longer. Despite the fact that L. Lo‘s court-ordered stay in rehab ends today (i.e. she can leave rehab today if she wants to), she has decided to stay at the Betty Ford Center (likely thru the week) to get her life and affairs in order before she enters the big, bad world again.

It's About Time
As one celebrity leaves rehab, another enters … such is the circle of life here in Hollywood.

The Disney star abruptly quits her tour and goes directly to rehab
Another day, another celeb checks into rehab … but the latest celeb to do so is a bit of a surprise. Demi Lovato, the cute little Disney star who rose to fame in the wake of Miley Cyrus‘s success on Hannah Montana, has abruptly quit her international concert tour with The Jonas Brothers to check herself into rehab for physical and emotional issues. According to TMZ, Demi is not seeking help for substance abuse … she merely felt the need to get help after she was involved in a “physical altercation” with a female member of her tour:
Disney star Demi Lovato has bailed on an international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers — and has checked into a treatment center to seek help for “emotional and physical issues” … TMZ has confirmed through the singer’s rep. n a statement to TMZ, the 18-year-old singer’s rep says, “Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time.” We’re told Demi is not seeking treatment for drug use. The statement continues, “Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that.” The rep concludes, “[Demi] regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.” Sources close to Lovato tell us the singer was in a physical altercation with a female member of her tour recently … which was a “catalyst” in her decision to seek professional help.
It sounds to me like Demi might have some serious emotional issues to deal with … which is kinda scary when you consider how young she is (the girl just turned 18 back in August). People magazine are quoting a source “close to Lovato‘s family” who said:
“She was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. … Demi is taking control by getting help.”
So maybe Demi and her female tourmate were engaging in some sort of self-harming behavior? Or maybe it was a physical fight? So sad! Whatever went down between Demi and the other girl, it must’ve been very serious … for an international star to voluntarily check herself into rehab and then tell the world about it, whatever went down had to have been pretty significant. I’m actually more surprised that this rehab story involves Demi Lovato at all. If you were to ask me which of these 3 young Disney pop stars would be the one to go to rehab out of Miley Cyrus, Selina Gomez and Demi Lovato … well, let me just say Demi‘s name would not be the name I’d pick. Here’s hoping the girl gets the help that she needs.
Lindsay will be in rehab until January 3, 2011
A decision has been made in Lindsay Lohan‘s probation violation hearing today … Judge Elden Fox decided NOT to send Lindsay to jail, offering her one more chance to get clean, and has decided to send her back to the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA until January 3, 2011:
Judge Fox decided to NOT take the LA Prosecutor’s recommendation to send Lindsay to jail for 180 days and opted, instead, to give her “one more chance”. Judge Fox made it clear to Lindsay that he was sending her to rehab until after January 1 in order to force her to stay sober thru New Year’s … he also made it clear that if she violates probation again she will surely go to jail. So there you have it … no jail, back to rehab — for the rest of the year. I guess we’ll have to see if Lindsay decides to make the most of this “one more chance” and stay clean and sober.
UPDATE: Here are a few more deets from TMZ about what happened in court this morning during Lindsay Lohan‘s probation violation hearing:
- Lindsay‘s next court date has been set for February 25, 2011.
- Judge Fox told Lindsay, point blank, “You are an addict. I hope you understand that.” Lindsay nodded in agreement.
- Both Michael Lohan and Dina Lohan were in the courtroom, on opposite sides of the room.
- Altho Lindsay was wearing her court-ordered alcohol monitoring SCRAM bracelet in court today, she will likely have it removed sometime soon.
- Lindsay cried tears of joy after hearing Judge Fox‘s ruling, telling him simply “Thank you.”
I understand that Lindsay will not begin random court-ordered drug testing again until after her release from rehab in January and her court date in February … which seems really odd to me, especially since she will not be wearing her SCRAM bracelet either. I suppose Judge Fox is counting on the Betty Ford Center to keep her 100% clean and sober for the next couple of months. We shall see if they are successful in that Herculean endeavor.
