Chris Klein Goes to “Band Camp”

And by “band camp,” I mean “rehab,” naturally.

After recent events involving Klein and his (second) DUI, reps for the actor state that he is, indeed, headed to rehab to control his monsters:

“After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone. He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so.”

Well, good for you, Chris. I admire your rep’s honesty that an issue needs to be addressed, and you’re taking the bull by the horns in order to do so. A lot of flighty celebrities do their thing out in public (sometimes at the cost of others), and taking the wheel after you’ve been drinking just isn’t cool. I’m glad to see that you’re seeking the help that you clearly need.

Yes, Yes, Yes

It’s being reported that Amy Winehouse is back in rehab. Thank goodness, right? Well, no, not really, because once again Amy’s not going because she wants to be clean, she’s going at the request of her new man, Reg Traviss.

A source spoke to The Sun and said:

“When she’s not on the bottle they get on brilliantly. But Reg has told her to quit the booze, otherwise he’ll be off, and she hit it hard last week.

“She wants to keep him so has decided to make a huge effort to stay sober.”

Amy and this Reg dude have only been dating for a few weeks, so the odds of her putting her beloved bottle down for him, I would say, are pretty freakin’ slim. And is it terrible to say that I think Amy would stop being fun if she sobered up? Is it wrong that I want to keep her a trainwreck for my own personal entertainment?
