It’s a busy time of year if you’re in the celebrity rehab business. Let’s start with Robin Williams. The veteran comedian is at a treatment centre in Minnesota. Williams has struggled with addiction for decades, but his people say this stay is essentially to maintain his long-term sobriety. He hasn’t fallen off the wagon so much as he needs to tighten his seat belt.
Shia LaBeouf is not in rehab, but he IS getting treatment. His rep says his bizarre behavior over the past few months can be attributed to alcohol addiction, so he is getting help with that. He’s got the home edition of rehab.
According to In Touch magazine, actress Portia de Rossi secretly checked into rehab back in May. I guess In Touch doesn’t realize what a secret is.
And of course Rob Ford bounced out of rehab and back into office on Monday, much to Jimmy Kimmel’s enjoyment. Kimmel say he missed that sweaty, pink man, but a number of Torontonians did not. His Worship was cheered and jeered while taking part in a Canada Day parade yesterday and lagged behind the other candidates, finally ducking out before the finish line. I would say he brought up the rear, but I’d rather not bring up his rear. Although it seems to be a bit smaller, so he’s got that going for him.
