Scandal Saturday

livin’ la vida Lohan

Lindsay Lohan was wasted at Harvey weinstein chateau marmont party and is suingNext to Catwoman with a loaded can of pepper spray, and twitchy trigger finger, and a drunken Capt. Jack Sparrow impersonator in her sights; the next best tabloid story involves Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay has had a long career of being Lindsay and the latest chapter involves another law suit. The difference between this lawsuit and the oodles of others she’s been involved in is that this time Lindsay is doin the suin’! You see some stories have been circulated about her again lately, and you just never get used to that.

The source of the beef seems to be a party that Lindsay recently attended. It was at the Chateau Marmont – Lindsay home away from where ever. According to the story Lindsay’s attention was attracted by a Harvey Weinstein party being held nearby. Lindz wasn’t invited, and the group were roped off, so Lindz sat just outside the rope section peering over at the happy party goers. She also looked desperate and bedraggled despite wearing a wearing a plunging v-neck black dress (with no bra).

Lindz didn’t spend the whole night looking forlornly over at the Weinstein group. She also sipped water. Water can catch up with you so maybe that’s why she made so many trips to the washroom that evening – allegedly. Shew as accompanied by some men friends and usually emerged from the facilities red nosed – like Rudolph! An eye witness, who isn’t helping the whole law suit deal, said that Lohan “was definitely on something. She was slurring her words, and needed help walking at one point in the course of the night.”

Hey any one can go a little green at the gills during a trip to the can!

You try doing Wheel of Fortune for 20 years sober!

Lindz gets a lot of shit for her alleged substance reliance. The way people carry on you’d think that she was the only celebrity who ever knocked a couple back. According to Pat Sajak only recently, he and Vanna White did the Wheel of Fortune drunk more than once. They’d used to go over to a near by restaurant on taping breaks and knock back a half dozen margaritas. Then they’d go back and finish taping. According to Pat sometimes they were so out of it that they had trouble keeping track of the alphabet. Makes you appreciate Vanna White’s consummate professionalism in being able to walk and turn letters at the same time most of the time. Then again it’s easy to appear on the ball when some of the contestants set the bar so low.

Harry Potter hit the witches’ brew – stewed on the set

Nor were Pat and Vanna the only highly paid pros who showed up for work drunk at the switch. According to Daniel Radcliffe not everything at Hogwort’s School of Sorcery for Young Gentlemen and Ladies everything that we might have thought it was. Danny Boy played Harry Potter in the film adaption of the JK Rowling novels – but I don’t need to tell anyone that. It was the role of a life time that should have left him typecast for the rest f his career, as well as rich enough never to have to get out of bed again. Yet everything was not as hunky dory as you would think.

According to Radcliffe in a recent interview some where along the way he turned to drinkin’. Radcliffe says :

“I went into work still drunk. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.”

Stressing that he didn’t drink at work, Radcliffe adds that, “People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I drank a lot and it was … nightly.”

The actor has said that he no longer drinks. “You either have to change something, or give into that shame.”

Hopefully the whole child star thing won’t work out for him the way it has for so many like such as Ms. Lohan. Then we might have to feel fleeting guilty before we upbraid him for messing up. Besides I think that the real problem was Emma Watson. She’s was a bad influence and is probably the one responsible for messing him up!

trouble for Taran

Finally that brings us to Taran Noah Smith. He was one of those Home Improvement kids. These days he’s branched out into other things, like DUI. Smith, who played youngest Taylor son Mark for 8 years on the sitcom, was out and about in Los Angeles County during the wee hours of the morning about a week back when he got into some trouble. Seems Smith was driving under the influence of of marijuana. He also had some hash along for the ride. So that got him his DUI plus a drug possession charge.

It hasn’t only been Home Improvement and arrests though. He’s had some other irons in the fire. He recently appeared in Home Improvement reunion photo shoot, and most notably sued his parents for squandering his trust fund. Apart from that he’s done a fairly good job of keeping to himself, which is no mean feat given his life experience as a child actor. One day when we become a just society we’re gonna get around to outlawing that, the way we outlawed other less inhumane forms of child labor.

Demi Moore was on Adderall

Update on Demi Moore:

when a problem comes along you must whip it; when something’s going wrong you must whip it

Demi Moore recently got herself hospitalize after having a whip it induced seizure. A friend became concerned when Moore started losing consciousness and having convulsions after inhaling nitrous oxide – known as whip its, and so phoned for the ambulance. That lead to the announcement that Demi is taking time off to sort out her problems. Well it turns out that whip its weren’t her only problem.

Seems that Demi has been struggling ever since her split up with Ashton Kutcher. She’s been losing an alarming amount of weight and that sparked some anorexia talk. It turns out things may have been a little worse than garden variety anorexia. Seems that Moore had been reinforcing her extreme diet with Adderall.

According to Radaronline Moore was not only starving herself but keeping herself jacked up on Adderall and energy drinks. A source told Radar:

“The pills and starvation destroyed Demi and this has been a problem for about a year,” the source said about her tragic situation.

“She’s constantly jacked up on Adderall and combining that with not eating accounts for her loopy behavior and anorexic body frame. She literally refuses to eat any food.”

Demi Moore isn’t the only one with some substance abuse issues. In a recent ESPN2 interview no less a person than Pat Sajack admitted to getting a little out of control from time to time. Pat is the host of long running TV game show mainstay Wheel of Fortune. According to Pat he and letter turner Vanna White would sometimes make their way to a nearby restaurant, during taping breaks, and down a bunch of margaritas. How many? According to Pat it could have been 2 or 3 or 6. Now is he sounds like he lost count it’s only cause it’s hard to stay focused after a certain point. In fact Pat says that at times he had difficulty recognizing the alphabet. For those worried that TV’s favorite games show’s wholesome image could get tarnished and that the Wheel could be swinging it’s way into rehab – fear not. Pat says that he’s not into drinking on the job these days.

Pat ain’t the only game show host who liked to get loose during work. Alex Trebek seemed to enjoy a little refreshment no and then himself – according to the following video. He had a hell of a mouth on him too. Unlike Pat Alex didn’t have to leave to get loose. Apparently he sometimes kept a can right under his podium.

It’s beginning to look like the Merv Griffith entertainment empire had almost as many problems as Disney Inc!

BTW Demi Moore isn’t the only one with Whip It trouble. According to the Mailonline Prince Harry Ginger has been known to enjoy the substance characterized in Great Britain as “hippy crack” The Mail reports that Harry was at a London party as recently as last Friday past. Harry was surrounded by leggy young women and having a blast until about 5 AM. He was also spotted repeated inhaling from a nitro filled balloon and laughing hysterically.

Apparently a big part of the appeal of Nitro is that it produces a ‘heavenly’, though brief, euphoria. That’s because it releases opiate like substance – probably some kind of endorphin – into the brain. It’s also cheap – about 5 bucks a hit. It’s also legal, so you can’t get in too much trouble. The down side is that it has a number of potential side effects – like such as chronic depression, brain lesions, bone ­marrow illnesses and death. Not to mention seizures and tabloid headlines!

Why do celebs do it? Well for one thing illegal drugs might be too much of a career risk. If a celeb gets busted for drugs then their studio masters might intervene. The celeb might be offered the choice of rehab or unemployment. So unless you’re willing to give up control of your life you could be hounded out of the business until you’re more cooperative. Just like Lindsay Lohan. Legal highs leave you on the right side of the line. If you’ve got a bottle full of pills then no one can say much, especially if a doctor prescribed them. On the down side you could wind up deader than Any Winehouse.

So until the powers that be are ready to legalize marijuana, the young and young at heart will have to use physically & mentally dangerous but legally cautious ways to get there: like nitrous oxide, and the prescription drugs that have carried off so many celebrities. Pill popping has done in everyone from Elvis to Marylin Munroe to Michael Jackson to Heath Ledger, and many times they’d been prescribed!
