Quotables: George Clooney Says That Airing Demi Moore’s 911 Call Was ‘Stupid’

“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?

Sarah Jessica Parker to Replace Demi Moore in ‘Lovelace’

Here is something I did not know: Demi Moore was originally slated to play Gloria Steinem in the bio-pic Lovelace.

This shocked me because—I’m sorry if this is rude, but—wasn’t Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle the last thing anyone saw Demi in? And even that was stunt casting. Does Demi really even act anymore?

And it’s all so sad because, like, Demi Moore really was the most talented person to come out of St. Elmo’s Fire, you guys. But the one-two punch of Striptease and G.I. Jane was a bit too much for any career, I guess.

So I kinda didn’t realize Demi Moore was even in the acting biz until today, when everyone started reporting that Demi Moore had been replaced. REPLACED! In the Lovelace movie!

Oof, this doesn’t look good, you guys.

Initial reports claimed that Mary-Louise Parker had won the role of Gloria Steinem.

Wrong! Now we know the truth: Sarah Jessica Parker is going to play the coveted part of Gloria Steinem. SARAH JESSICA PARKER HAS REPLACED DEMI MOORE.

Celebuzz:

Contrary to earlier reports, Sarah Jessica Parker will be replacing Demi Moore in Lovelace rather than Mary Louise Parker, which Us Weekly reported earlier.

Sarah will be playing the part of Gloria Steinem while Demi focuses on her recovery. Any Sex and the City fan out there should appreciate that this means there will be a Carrie and Mr. Big reunion on the big screen!

Chris Noth has already been cast in the film.

This is terrible! I don’t know how to feel about all this!

Also—and I know this isn’t exactly an age-appropriate casting call, but here goes anyway—I think we should give the role of Gloria Steinem to Jennifer Aniston, just because Jen called Steinem “the sexiest woman of all time.”

Demi Moore Was Probably Smoking Bath Salts

So, I said yesterday that the 911 call featuring Demi‘s rescuers would be sent out to the ‘net for all of the public’s listening pleasure, and it has been. I haven’t listened to it. And if you want to listen to it, it’s out there, but you’re not going to find it here – at least from me – because like I said, I think it’s weird. Morbid might be a better word. Like, that one website, Rotten.com? God do I hate that website. There’s such bizarre stuff on there, and I think certain things are better left unheard or unseen (nudie photos, now that’s something entirely different. We’re all nude under our clothes, let’s just get on with it, OK? I mean really. Show me what you’re working with).

So, right. Back to Demi. People‘s got the scoop, saying that the friend who phoned in the emergency call claimed that Demi smoked something “similar to incense,” but not pot, and that was the catalyst to the earlier-mentioned seizure. So what was it? I don’t know. Your guess is as good as mine. This story’s gotten so messed up and retold and convoluted that I’m going to be completely ridiculous and say ‘bath salts’. One thing that I did read, however, was that the woman on the phone was often heard during the call referring to another woman by the name of ‘Ru’. Um, would that possibly be Rumer Willis we’re talking about? Demi’s twenty-three year-old daughter? I’m thinking so.

And isn’t that just great. Demi’s oldest daughter was probably present for her mom’s idiocy. Because really, what else was it? It might have been a different story if Demi had just collapsed and maybe seized because of exhaustion and not eating and stress and what not, but she collapsed and seized because …

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.

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

A photo of Demi Moore

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.

Demi Moore Won’t Stop Losing Weight

photo of demi moore weight loss pics gaunt photos sick pic
You know, I always kind of admired Demi, if you could look past the multi-million-dollar plastic surgeries and the whole allowing-herself-to-latch-onto-a-dumb-kid-who-probably-never-took-her-all-that-serious, but this continual downward spiral into sadness and thinness has got to stop. I mean, look at that picture. Don’t you just want to shake her hard enough to knock her glasses off and scream, “SNAP THE F-CK OUT OF IT, DEMI, I mean it! God!”

Girlfriend’s got a lot to offer, and if she’d quit bellyaching over the douchebag that – aww – was a douchebag, she might actually be able to start getting on with her life and maybe, just maybe, keep down a sandwich or two. If things went well, she might even be able to start shopping in the women’s section of her favorite store again, and not have to raid her adolescent kid’s closet for pants that fit, because I’m sorry, but size 14 in kids just does not look good on any adult, girl.

The latest, though, is that Demi’s being linked to Jennifer Aniston of all people. Getting love advice from Jennifer Aniston. Training with the ROCKY of LOVE, Jennifer Aniston. My God.
