Colin Farrell’s life used to be kind of a mess (direct contact with 2000s-era Lindsay Lohan can do that to a person), but after a trip to rehab in December 2005, he started a journey of sobriety. UsWeekly is reporting that Colin has recently taken a trip back to rehab for a helpful sobriety tune-up. A source says that 41-year-old Colin, who celebrated 10 years clean last year, voluntarily checked himself into rehab last week.
“He put himself in there. It was voluntary. He was not using again, but needed to do a little reset and get things back in alignment to make sure he doesn’t use again.”
The source says that Colin is currently at The Meadows treatment center in Arizona. That’s reportedly the same rehab Selena Gomez went to back in 2015 to recover from chemotherapy treatment she received for her lupus. It’s also the same rehab where Harvey Weinstein spent time. I wonder if rehab is like prison, where it’s a smart idea to assert dominance on your first day? I’m not saying I want to hear that Colin took a swing at Harvey. I’m just saying I wouldn’t hate it if a source leaked that Harvey approached Colin with a friendly handshake and Colin brushed him off by hissing, “Piss off, ya banjaxed chancer.”
Selena Gomez has been doing some much needed self-care and recently spent two weeks in a Justin Bieber dependency rehab facility. Sorry, my bad, I totally read that wrong. UsWeekly says it’s actually a “treatment facility focused on mental wellness and empowerment”. The New York facility provides “clean eating” as well as treatment for mental and physical health. No word if Selena was allowed to bring her giant teddy bear but they did let her bring her telephone. Selena was last in rehab in 2016.
On Saturday night, Dennis the Vehicular Menace Rodman was arrested for DUI in Newport Beach, CA after blowing over the 0.08 legal limit on a breathalyzer. He was also still on a 3-year probation stemming from a hit and run he committed back in 2016. About the time of his arrest, Dennis’ agent Darren Prince said that he was trying to get Dennis into rehab, and it looks like he made that happen.
Since I can’t stand to look at Harvey Weinstein’s face one more time, here’s a sleeping puppy.
This has been a helluva week for Harvey Weinstein. The public found out he’s a disgusting piece of scum, he got fired from his own company, his wife left him, woman after woman has called him out and the press won’t leave him alone. It’s no wonder that he’s been wound a little tight. TMZ reports that yesterday in L.A., Harvey terrorized his daughter Remy Weinstein, who he was staying with, by getting into a screaming match with her that was so bad the cops had to show up. And then he flew off to rehab.
There’s been not-so-blind items about how an actor went off to get treatment with help from a solid influence in his life. I read those blind items in a Bawsten accent and the scent of vape vapor wafted off of them, so they were obviously about Ben Affleck. Today, those blind items probably got their obvious answer when Ben said on Facebook that he spent some time in rehab to deal with an addiction to booze. It’s not the first time that Ben dried out and got help in rehab. Ben got treatment for booze abuse in 2001 at the celebrity rehab place of the early-aughts, Promises in Malibu. In his Facebook message, Ben also thanked his co-parent Jennifer Garner for supporting him.
I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.
TMZ ‘s source says that Ben checked into rehab shortly after he presented with Matt Damon at the Oscars on February 26. But who knows? Ben could’ve left rehab for the day to present at the Oscars. The last time he was papped with Jennifer Garner was in early February.
Well, I guess this means that those “Ben and Jen are trying to save their marriage” rumors are totally back on after they were denied. If Ben and Jennifer are really trying to work it out, then I have a feeling she will soon give him a special gift for completing rehab. Jennifer will take Ben to a luxurious spa that just so happens to specialize in a treatment called hardcore laser tattoo removal.
Back in November, Brooke Mueller caused everyone in her life to read Yelp reviews for rehab facilities after she caused a cracked out scene at a bar and was seen wandering barefoot around Salt Lake City, Utah. A witness also claimed at the time that Brooke was beating her boys at a car wash. Brooke had just completed a rehab stay in Utah and decided to live there with her and Charlie Sheen’s 7-year-old twins, Bob and Max.
After Brooke lost it at a bar and car wash in Salt Lake City, she underwent a psychiatric evaluation, which turned into another rehab visit. Bob and Max were placed with Brooke’s family. After two months, Brooke’s family has confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that she’s out of rehab. I’m half expecting (okay, more than half) every bar and car wash in the greater Salt Lake City area to start nailing two-by-fours over their doors and windows after hearing that Brooke is on the loose again. But it sounds like she might be in a good place for now. Her mother Moira Fiore said this to ET yesterday:
“I’m really proud of how well Brooke is doing after her treatment plan and being a full-time mom again. She’s very committed to being the best mom and staying healthy.”
If Brooke wants to avoid another “Utah November” – if you will – she needs more than a sober coach. She needs someone who can teach her how to sober-mom. You know, Denise Richards seems to have her shit together, mom-wise. Why doesn’t Brooke move in with Denise? Denise already has experience helping Brooke out with her kids. And whenever shit gets too stressful and Brooke starts itching to take her shoes off, Denise can distract her by laughing about how small their child support checks from Charlie are now.
