On Wednesday’s episode of CBS afternoon series, The Talk, co-host Sharon Osbourne, spoke eloquently about addiction, and how amazing and adored Lovato is to her fans all around the world/

Here’s what Sharon Osbourne shared: “I think Demi admitted a couple months ago that she had a slip with her sobriety and I think what a lot of people don’t understand about addiction, whether its drink or drugs, it isn’t a choice, its something you’re born with, and every day is a battle… I know people who have been sober 25 years who have had slips, even longer and have gone out again, and it’s a battle that she will have to fight every day of her life. And it’s a hard battle. Every single day. And I think that she’s done amazing with her life so far, she’s had a slip, the one thing that is so bad is, is that obviously it can affect whether you live or die when you have a slip, but thank God she is awake, she is with her family, she is dearly loved by her family and her fans all over the world, everybody adores her. I just think that she is the bravest little girl I know, she constantly fights, she’s constantly open with her battle that she faces every single day of her life… I just wish her more strength. Demi, you’re a fighter. You can win this war, one day at a time.”

My heart goes out to Demi Lovato. She has been so open and vulnerable with the general public about her struggles, and it makes you (me) just want to root for her. I watched a documentary that she did called “Stay Strong” and it was so raw and honest. To put yourself “out there” the way that she has/did is very courageous, and to struggle and succumb to your demons in front of millions has to be very hard. I hope that she realizes that she needs more help and is committed and open to receiving that help. (Mind you,… Read more »

You should know Osbourne….. All your kids were addicted to something or other ( are they still?) for years. Having you and your husband as role models speaks volumes. Had you cared about your children, you would have taken them away from that corrosive environment and left Ozzie….but, money had a greater pull for you!! Everything out of your mouth is hypocritical when you are still in the midst of a dysfunctional family life. But, I guess, that’s the norm for you. Take your good-girl hat off. As far as Demi, she has been taking diet pills since forever….combine that… Read more »

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
