The continuing saga of Hollyweird addiction

AP Source: Lohan fails court-ordered drug test

LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan has failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening test and could face a probation violation that might throw her back in jail.

Do we really care? Obviously we do.
I feel sorry for this poor pitiful creature who just can't stay clean and sober. I know how hard that is for someone suffering from addiction. I hope she has her moment of clarity and gets it before she dies.
That said; aren't we all just a little bit sick of the Hollywood sickies? I mean, come on, Linsey Lohan, Jouquin Pheonix, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and sad sorry piles of other celebrity messes saturate the news media on a daily basis. ENOUGH! We know that you dumb fucks are no better than the rest of us dumb fucks. That means a whole bunch of you are going to be mental basket cases. I don't want to see the mental basket cases who inhabit my world paraded before me in living color and I sure as hell don't want to see these Hollywood celebrity dip shits in a parade of psychotics.
The difference between the mental basket cases in my world and those in the Hollyweird world is that the ones in my world have a lot less resources at their disposal to get themselves propped up and on the mend. Sure, in the end they'll all be relying on the same 12 step programs to maintain their sanity, but up front, there's a lot less hope for those with limited resources.
How bout we shed some light on what the real evils of substance abuse are for the average person and the causes of addiction instead of the gross voyeuristic nonsense that we have to endure day in and day out from the press.
Naaaaw, that wouldn't sell..

I always try to go the sympathetic route. Much as the showbiz airheads irritate me, I do feel sorry for them because they are victims of the weird, sado-masochistic system we've built. People love you, you're selling movies or CDs and all the kids want to be you... you start falling for your own publicity and think yer shit don't stink. Then, bam, we all get bored, decide we don't like you no more and tear you apart with supermarket tabloids and gossip. If you ain't drinking and drugging you will be. I can't really blame people like Britney Spears and what's-her-face who go off the deep end. One minute the world loves you, the next it seems to hate you and you're left wondering what the hell you did. It's a lot to expect any young girl to take in her stride however rich and cossetted she might be.
