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.”

Hmmm. Would have been nice if this level of concern had been devoted to saving Cory Monteith…

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, if this was Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus, I wouldn’t be so sympathetic).

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 with drugs? …..the outcome is a no-brainer.
That’s Hollywood for you. I wish her well, with all my heart…..will she have learned her lesson? Rhetorical question!!

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.
