After Ben Affleck checked into rehab almost four weeks ago, we learned that rehab wasn’t about to come between Ben and his 22-year-old Playboy model girlfriend Shauna Sexton. The only problem is, rehab wasn’t the only one trying to come between Ben and Shauna (for his own good, of course). But apparently all that outsider meddling isn’t working, and Ben and Shauna are closer than ever.
Almost two weeks ago, Ben Affleck checked into rehab for alcohol addiction after his soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner stage an intervention. That seemed to end whatever he had with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton. Shauna might have had some nice dates with Ben, but she didn’t have a great time in the press. It was rumored that Ben’s slide back into his bad ways was made worse from him spending time with Shauna. Shauna has recently come forward with her side of things, and she’d like everyone to know she wasn’t the cause of his relapse.
In an Ellen episode that airs tomorrow, Mel B was on to promote her upcoming memoir Brutally Honest. But the conversation turned to the news from The Sun that she’s checking into a British rehab center next month. Even though The Sun’s source was Mel B herself, she says that the information got a little twisted, and she’d like to clarify why she’s actually going to rehab.
Earlier this month, Mel B finally wrapped up the details in her awful divorce from Stephen Belafonte. Since it was such a headache, it seemed inevitable to me that Mel B would pack her bags and take some me-time away from it all. But, I was picturing Mel B in a huge straw hat, surrounded by suntan oil boys ready for service. The reality is much more serious. According to The Sun, Mel B is going to rehab.
About a year and a half after he completed a rehab stint for alcohol issues, Ben Affleck has checked back in yesterday. I’m probably not the only one who thinks this news feels like the inevitable bookend to the one that began last week with the words: “Ben dumps his girlfriend for a 22-year-old Playboy model.”
Almost everything I know about rehab I’ve learned from repeat viewings of the Sandra Bullock movie 28 Days. So when it was reported that Demi Lovato had checked into a rehab facility after her suspected drug overdose last month, I pictured Demi sucking lots of suckers, killing it during a group sing-a-long of “Lean On Me,” and throwing her bags into a taxi at the end of 28 days. That’s not what’s going to happen. Well, who knows about the suckers and sing-a-long, but she definitely won’t be staying for under a month.
