“I think it’s a stupid thing. 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. 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.”
You said it, George. It is stupid – no matter who it is – and that’s the exact point I made last week when I, you know, said the same thing. There’s a fine line between what can be considered public knowledge and what’s not, and I think that 911 calls (since they can be, I suppose, considered private health information) kind of cross the line into “stuff not suitable for public consumption,” much like social security numbers, banking information, dental history; whatever.
Naturally, this would be a good segueway to discuss Demi, since discussing her and speculating about her state of mind and body is, you know, a horse of an entirely different colored in comparison to releasing their 911 calls to the public, duh. According to sources, Demi’s not in rehab, but in “spiritual counseling.” Because that’s going to do a lot for her anorexia problem, isn’t it? From what I gather about “spiritual counseling,” some of it relies heavily on detoxing the body (from, you know, everything including food) and I’m not quite sure Demi should be purging anything but drugs from her system these days. She can’t afford to fast, folks. From E! Online:
While rumors have surfaced suggesting she’s already entered a residential rehab facility (with Utah’s Cirque Lodge among the most speculated upon), sources tell E! News that as of last week, at least, Moore was not enrolled in such a program. Her exact whereabouts are uncertain, as she has yet to surface in public since her dramatic hospitalization, though as of Sunday she was not yet back at her Beverly Hills home.
However, sources close to the Striptease star tell E! News that Moore has been receiving some sort of “spiritual counseling.”
That’s cute how they put the ‘Striptease star’ comment in there. I mean, come on. Who really remembers Demi from Striptease? If we’re talking about girlfriend in a positive light here (which, honestly, I guess we should be trying at the very least), we should be referring to her as ‘the Ghost star’ or the ‘One Crazy Summer’ star, or hell, even the ‘G.I. Jane’ star, just without the backhanded, underlying gastrointestinal reference.
I hope Demi gets better, because I think she’s in a much better place than, say, people like Lindsay Lohan are. I think she’s had it pretty rough, and with regard to her perception of self-worth, I think she’s got a lot of work to do on making herself better. I think Demi, as opposed to people like, say, Lindsay Lohan, wants to get well. But I think that she’s got to get over this Ashton thing and move on as quickly and efficiently as possible, because it’s only going to drag her down more.
I guess laying off the drugs would probably help, too, though, huh?
