Mary-Kate Olsen in rehab for cocaine addiction
I previously blogged about Mary-Kate Olsen being anorexic.
She checked into the Cirque Lodge, a rehab clinic in Utah. The National Enquirer and the Star will both have the story this week.
American Media [the company that owns the Star and the Enquirer] mouthpiece Stu Zakim gloated yesterday, "If they were going to sue us, they would have done it already. Nothing has come forward and that only reinforces the validity of our reporting. We knew how explosive this story would be, and it's been fact-checked and fact-checked and fact-checked. We have all the confidence in the world that our reporting is on the money."
The cover of the Enquirer says that Mary-Kate has beein in rehab twice, that she's been addicted for a year, and her weight plunged to 77 pounds.
Mary-Kate's family insists that the story isn't true.
A Virginia Pilot June 12 editorial about the Olsen Twins is wonderfully ironic. The columnist, Jacey Eckhart, wrote:
On the good side, these girls havenít been arrested for drunken driving or shoplifting. Neither seems to be on intimate terms with dealers of crack cocaine.
Guess you were wrong about the cocaine, Jacey!!!!
Even if Mary-Kate is in cocaine rehab, I say that at 77 pounds she's still anorexic. Both Olsen twins need to do some serious eating. They're not pretty, they're scary looking. How can our pop culture glorify those two? I just don't get it.
I want to get away from these Hollywood type posts, but sometimes I just can't resist. Especially if it's a follow up to a story I already covered. Sorry.
Check out my new post where I respond to many of the comments posted here: Mary-Kate Olsen, drugs, and personal responsibility.
