Allegra Versace has been checked into a facility to deal with her anorexia. According to reports, Allegra is 70 pounds and is being fed through a feeding tube and being monitored around the clock. Hopefully she will get the help she needs at this new place as she has been fighting this disease for a while.
Pictures of her looking painfully thin have been out there since 2004. At 11, Allegra inherited quite a lot of money from her late uncle, Gianni Versace, and her years of problems do well to illustrate the fact that money does not always mean happines.
Hopefully she will get better soon. Living with the crazy that is her mother I am guessing has been a stressful upbringing.

Anna Nicole Died of an accidental overdose, no sign of foul play.
Broward County Medical Examiner Joshua Perper said Smith was taking nine different kinds of medication in the days before her death, including a sleeping aid.
He also said Methadone was not in her blood, suggesting no use at the time of death, but was in her body, suggesting usage at some point in the recent past.
Commentary: Nine prescription drugs seems like too many.
SOME OF THE DRUGS:
Chloral Hydrate (sleeping pill)
D12 (allergies, immune system booster)
Benadryl (c’mon, that’s ok)
Tylenol (I’m on this now)
The Dr. on MSNBC said she should have been in the hospital (just in general) if she was on that many prescriptions. The news folks are now talking “criminal negligence” for not taking her to the hospital although that seems unlikely.
Some of the prescriptions were evidently obtained under aliases.

Jenna Fischer is very fun in my opinion. Wired Magazine must agree because they threw her on the cover.
Okay, it’s really not a big deal because she’s not showing as much skin as me walking around on “leather night,” but still, it should get her some buzz. Now all we need to do is get our gal into some rom-coms. Here’s the pic:

But not me.
Anyway, Peyton Manning (football player) hosted SNL and he wasn’t too shabby. Here’s a fun spoof on the United Way Commercials that will probably get pulled by NBC very soon (because they hate free PR).

So apparently the original Marcia Brady — Maureen McCormick — told People magazine that she used to be both bulimic and a cokehead. I can’t find the story anywhere on People’s website, but I do have this link to the website of some South Carolina local news station that starts their coverage of this with — and I urge you to confirm this for yourself — the following lines: “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. It’s a good thing Mr. Brady isn’t alive to hear this.”
Yes, that’s so true, WLTX out of Columbia, South Carolina. AIDS gets a bad rap these days, but, without it, men like Robert Reed might still be alive today. You know, to hear that his co-star on a television sitcom that wrapped filming over thirty years ago engaged in recreational drug use and battled an eating disorder as a teenager. But, thanks to AIDS, we don’t have to worry about that happening.
Anyway, the rest of the story goes like this:
The eating disorder came first. She says it started when she went back to public school when she was 17. Then a boyfriend introduced her to cocaine.
McCormick says it became clear she has an “addictive personality.” After several relapses, McCormick says she cleaned up through therapy and faith.
But really I don’t care much. I just laughed out loud at the first paragraph on WLTX’s coverage and I wanted to share it with everyone else.
Thanks to IBBB for the heads-up.
