I Guess We’re Going to Get to Hear Demi Moore’s 911 Tape

From TMZ:

The Demi Moore 911 tape will not be very revealing, because we’ve learned there’s gonna be a lot of redacted information … including the drugs she was using just before the emergency.

Law enforcement sources tell us … The L.A. City Attorney is recommending that all references to drugs in the 911 conversation between the dispatcher and one of Demi’s friends should be erased before being released to the public. The recommendation is based on patient privacy.

TMZ broke the story … paramedics on scene were told Demi had been doing whip-its … inhaling nitrous oxide immediately before she fell into semi-consciousness and had seizure-like symptoms.

OK, cool. Right? I don’t know what’s quite cooler: that Demi Moore was doing whip-its (even in my younger and stupider days, I didn’t f-ck with that dangerous stuff, but hey – that’s just me), or the fact that the 911 tape is going to be released.

If you’re confused about what I actually mean by “cool,” neither of those two things are cool. No, the fact that someone would release a 911 tape from an emergency definitely is as messed up as Demi’s immature, way-to-set-the-example-MOM ways of huffing substances that ought not to be huffed. I mean, honestly. A released 911 tape? What the hell for? I know we run a celebrity gossip site, and you’d think that something like that would be right at home here, or on other similar sites, but I really (honestly) don’t see a market for it. I don’t know. I feel it’s like running death photos or something. Maybe I’m overreacting. Maybe I’m not. I guess it depends on whether or not you agree.

Also, I know that it’s a perfectly legal thing to do, air 911 audio tapes. But it doesn’t make it right. As TMZ stated, and according to the LA Times, all of the medical condition information will be redacted, thus filling the tape with a bunch of blank-outs:

“Generally speaking, it’s our recommendation to withhold release of any medical condition or ingested substance related to an incident,” said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office, which has reviewed the 911 and and made recommendations to city agencies on which sections to cut.

Mateljan said federal privacy laws strictly regulate what medical information public agencies and hospitals can release about patients. That includes health information and any medications the patient might have taken.

But still. The point remains, why bother? I realize there’s a fine line between what’s appropriate and what’s not when it comes to airing out all of the soiled, dirty-assed laundry of celebrities, but for me, 911 tapes are just cutting it way low. I’m just saying. I know we don’t get a whole lot of “serious” going on over here, and your regularly-scheduled snark is just another hour away, but damn.

Thoughts?

So This is What ‘Exhaustion’ Means, Huh?

From Radar Online:

Demi Moore had a seizure Monday night before she was rushed to the hospital and is being treated for anorexia, among other substance abuse issues, Radaronline.com has exclusively learned.

The 49-year-old Ghost star has become frighteningly thin since her split with husband Ashton Kutcher, and a source close to the actress described what happened to her.

“She collapsed after having an epileptic seizure,” the source said about the frightening medical emergency.

Her dramatic weight loss has caused much speculation about her health and the source confirmed that this is one of the issues she is seeking treatment for.

“Demi is in getting treated for anorexia, as well as other issues that caused her seizure,” the source said. “She has not taken care of her health at all lately and has lost a ton of weight.”

The actress is reportedly seeking help for substance abuse as well.

Yikes. Poor girl, I can’t imagine what kind of condition her stomach’s in. Not eating and doing drugs and/or drinking? Jeez. And all this, over Ashton Kutcher, King Douche of the Bareback Hookups. Well, no, maybe not exactly. E! Online has an exclusive interview with one of Demi’s close celebrity friends, who asked to remain off the record as to his identity Bruce Willis. The tipster claims that it’s a shame that Demi’s just breaking down now, after all she’s been through in her life:

“Demi has come so far to do this now,” lamented a well known celeb pal of Demi’s. So is he saying that perhaps the famously sober star is not having the easiest time of it right now?

“Demi’s been through it all, from a long time back,” the friend continued, referring to Demi’s wild ‘n’ crazy days before she settled down with second hubby Bruce Willis. “And I wish her nothing but success. I will always wish her that. I just hate to see her succumb to her troubles now.”

The friend did not want to go on record saying what, exactly, it was about Demi’s health that she was battling, only that he was “sorry to see it happen.”

OK, so now that we’ve got the male celebrity friend narrowed down to Bruce Willis (because really, he’s probably the only one aside from Ashton Kutcher, who could give a shit less about this news and is firing off Tweets about his international whereabouts and fun times partying with Victoria’s Secret models), are we all clear and in agreement that Demi’s been ill-ish for quite some time? I hardly expect this is the last we’re going to hear about girl’s life-long battle with self-esteem and substance abuse issues. It really goes to show you, no matter how together or with it some people seem to have it, there’s sometimes that deep layer that’s more f-cked than anyone realizes, and before anyone can do anything to help, it’s often too late.

Get well, Demi, jeez.

Demi Moore Is Going to Rehab

I didn’t even know that Demi Moore had ever had a problem with drugs, so excuse me if this is a little bizarre for me. However, a real quick Google search told me that Demi supposedly went to rehab back in the 80′s for an addiction to cocaine. Sadly, it looks like she might be back to her old ways, because she’s seeking assistance to “treat her exhaustion.” And you know what that means.

By the way, she also had to be taken to the hospital last night. Oh, exhaustion, what a horrible beast you are:

Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital last night … and we’re told the issue is substance abuse.

Law enforcement tells us a 911 call was placed at 10:45 PM Monday night.  Paramedics responded to Demi’s L.A. home and after assessing her for a half hour, she was transported to a local hospital.

Sources tell us she is being placed in a facility to “seek further professional assistance.”  Our sources say the treatment is for substance abuse.

Demi’s rep says, “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.  She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.”

This actually makes a ton of sense. Demi has been looking incredibly thin lately, and she has been going through quite a lot emotionally, obviously. That interview a few weeks ago where she revealed that she’s scared that she’s “not worthy of being loved” and that there’s something “fundamentally wrong” with her, that sounds pretty horrible in hindsight, doesn’t it? Was it a cry for help?

Oh, Demi. Here’s hoping that you get that “exhaustion” under control, and that you come to terms with the fact that no matter how much you loved or still love Ashton, he’s a douchebag that isn’t worth all this.
