So Samaire Armstrong, some nobody who did a few episodes of The O.C. and is now on the most-hyped show that no one’s watching, Dirty Sexy Money, decided to go to some outpatient center for some of her bullshit and decided to have her rep issue a statement about it.
“Samaire Armstrong decided to enter an outpatient facility to deal with some personal issues in a therapeutic atmosphere and is doing very well. She continues to work on her show and will be completing her treatment in a matter of weeks.”
Apparently she missed a week or so of shooting on DSM while in rehab, so she’ll be out for an episode. “She stumbled a bit, but she’s back on set,” says a source on the show.
So clearly this happened at least a week or two ago. Why issue the statement today?
It’s a slow news day. Perfect opportunity for a nobody to get some publicity for a rehab stint.
There you have it folks: When life hands you lemons, issue a press release.
