Psych Wards Are The New Rehab

| Filed under: Z List

wenndeltaburke.jpg

First Britney. Then Justin Chambers.

Now, Delta Burke is the latest celebrity to check in to a psychiatric hospital.

Spears went in for bipolar disorder. The Grey's Anatomy doc went in for insomnia.

And Delta?

The Designing Women alum checked in to the psych ward for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding."

Burke says that being a pack rat has ruined her life.

    I don't have the hoarding/OCD condition, but i've seen what it can do to people and its gruesome…keeping garbage, not able to throw out anything like old pizza boxes, empty toothpaste containers and even used bandaids (I'm not saying Delta has done that but I've seen folks who have)…I hope she gets the help/meds she needs to combat this..it can easily ruin a life and its so embarrassing…

    do you suppose getting treatment from doctors who have worked "in the trenches" could possibly yield better results than a frillyfroofroo rehab center?

    Please sign this petition to have a criminal investigation opened against Osama Lutfi.

    www.ipetitions.com/petition/investigateosamalutfi

    It will be sent to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

    Feel free to post this link on other blogs. This man is a menace and has committed crimes that he deserves to be investigated for.

    Strength is in numbers, so please sign and pass on.

    Oh leave her alone. For Gods sake, she's not running around displaying her vajayjay or playing with a baby doll with a clown face painted on. Sometimes people need help. Remember, at one time homosexuality was considered a mental illness. Society would have chained you to a tree Perez. I don't know what they would have done about your hair!

    Since when do you need to check yourself into a hospital because you are a hoarder??? She needs to just talk to a therapist and get her shit together.

    I wish her well. I also wish she'd check right into a fat farm when she's out of the psyche ward. She's actually quite beautiful and should get her shit together.

    None of us are doctors, we don't know what causes people to flip out, but isn't it good there are hospitals with psych wards that let people get their lives back together? Sometimes it's all about getting some sleep and rest.

    There is no such thing as mental illness. Just immature people.
    YOU NEED TO GROW UP!!!
    Checking into a psych ward because you hoard? Jesus Christ, talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water. Hollywood, and the rest of America, is full of pathetic losers.

    Thanks for continuing to perpetuate the predjudice against mental illness Perez!! I love you and your site but ease up and please get back to superfical gossiping. All these deep and personal judgements on people and their struggles is just getting so sad.

    A PACK RAT! NOT A RAT PACK…FUCKING FRANK SINATRA…SAMMY DAVIS JR.?

    Sorry but no one realy cares about Delta except for old people. who else would watch Designing Women?

  54. alana says – reply to this


    54

    how is it possible to be OCD AND a pack rat? Oxymoron. Pick one. (it's not "rat pack"…you are thiking Sinatra)

  55. JNT says – reply to this

    Wish you well, Delta! She is actually quite a sweet lady and has been dealing with these issues for quite some time. Glad you are getting help and take care!

    Re: Voice Of Reason – "There is no such thing as mental illness. Just immature people" ummm…WHAT????? how can you say that? I suffered from a mental illness myself and can tell you first hand it is very hard to deal with. it is people like you who make people like me so afraid to get the help they need. In now way should a person be ashamed of something they have no control over but it happens so often. People don't get the help they need because they are scared people will ridicule them.

    Re: Loquatz – Perez can't help it - He's just reporting on what's out there. It's HOLLYWOOD that getting sad - what is wrong with these people?!? It's really getting depressing (psych ward - here I come!) BTW, P - you forgot to mention Owen Wilson in your write-up. He was TOTALLY 5150!!

    Poor Delta. She's a nice lady, I wish her the best. I think she just needs to divorce that Republican husband.

  63. Jenny Seminar says – reply to this


    63

    Delta, What happened to you? You were great on Designing Women. Depression, come on. Every one gets upset sometimes. And a pack rat. You can hire people to help you go through things. I hope she gets the help she needs.

  64. smorf says – reply to this


    64

    it is pack rat not rat pack..unless she thinks she is sammy davis jr.

  65. LookAtYou says – reply to this


    65

    It's well known that Delta is an old school train wreck, but it's awfully suspicious that since she is coming out with a new tv show, that all of a sudden she's running to a psych ward. She should be running to the jenny 20 program.

    66

    How about 'pack rat?' You so silly!

  67. VS says – reply to this


    67

    No, no, no, it was not Britney. it was Justin Chambers who was first. It's no
    matter they are all getting the help they need. But, don't go saying Brit was
    first! She should HAVE been. She is really sick. Justin might have seen what
    Heath went through and got help BEFORE Britney checked in. Hell, he was checking OUT when she was CHECKING IN. So let's get the story straight!
    No one is proud but, hey you have do what you have to do. All for different
    reasons. Rehab serves another purpose. Hell, I am a horder myself. I may check myself in. Shiz!

    I am sick of these wack doctors telling everyone they are bi polor, its getting old. This type of illness is not as common as anxiety. Its obvious the pharmarcy companies are just trying to have high sales. Its fucking sick! I know someone that works for phizer and they are the most irresponsible fucks that give money to hush people up. QUESTION Authority! ALWAYS! DO NOT BE A MINDLESS PERSON

    Re: cece – that is not true at all. I have ocd and hoarding is NOT the beginning of anything else. God-do your research people are so fucking ignorant.

    Re: Jenny Seminar – omg you are even worse. have you HAD depression??? its not just being upset…its much more than that. Don't talk about something you know nothing about it only makes you sound pathetic. And hoarding…no you cant just hire someone to go through your shit it means much more than that to people with ocd LIKE MYSELF!

  72. Rebel in GA says – reply to this


    72

    Wow. I love Delta. This is sad. The "hoarding" thing is very difficult to treat; it takes months/years of behavioral therapy to overcome it. I hope wherever she checked in they have someone who specializes in this. Very sad.

    understandable, its a tough lifestyle for the rat pack

  77. Jen says – reply to this


    77

    Please stop saying "who?" If you really have never heard of Delta Burke go to google or imdb. Both are very easy to use. And to the poster who said only old people like 'Designing Women', I like the show and I am 30. I guess I'm old!

    Re: Jen – sorry shouldn't have said it like that. My grandmother always watched the show when I was little and I didn't like it. So I just kinda associated it with my grandmothers age group…..but hey I like threes company and thats and old show, lol…..but I just didn't think most perez readers wouldn't care because she doesn't seem like the typical story he writes about. So I am sorry to have posted that remark.

    Re: Voice Of Reason – If you really think there's no such thing as a mental illness, then I suggest you try living with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. We'll see what you have to say about that. For fuck's sake, you're making the inhabitants of whatever country you come from look dumber than most Americans. Congrats.

  94. Shirley McLaine says – reply to this


    94

    Perez, I read you everyday from my perch high up in Northern New Mexico and I usually agree with your take on Hollywood…HOWEVER…Delta Burke, as lovely as she is, was NEVER a member of the infamous "Rat Pack." I hold the distinction of being the only woman to be a member of Frank Sinatra's famous and very exclusive club. What is with these TV stars all of a sudden trying to rewrite history…I guess they figured that if Nancy Sinatra can be on The Sopranos, they can grab a little attention by stating a lie now that all the guys are DEAD!!! Well, I”m still here and I'm making sure that Frank's legacy and that of The Rat Pack is not reconstructed to Ms. Burke's preference. As for it ruining her life, honey she's too young to let it affect her. I doubt she ever even met Frank.

    I have someone in my own family who has these exact same problems, and I've seen what it does. Not good. I don't understand it myself. There is indeed some underlying problem(s) that need to be addressed. I remember Oprah had a show specifically tailored to this problem of hoarding, where they're afraid to get rid of things that they "think" they may someday need. Then it gets so bad that they don't know where to start to get rid of things, so it becomes a vicious circle. They are generally perfectionists at heart, and that's where the problem lies. Most times they also have an eating disorder.

  96. CONFUSED [:(] says – reply to this


    96

    HMMMMM…. She kind of looks like a fatter version of Dita Yawn Teese. They both have about the same amount of plastic pumped into their faces, don't you think?
    But you know what's really scary? After awhile, people don't notice it as much. Take "Rock of Love" for example; at first the women are terrifyingly plastic, and after a few shows people hardly notice. It becomes the norm. Beautiful women who have a few wrinkles have become the minority. Just another one of lifes little problems women can add to their laundry list. sad!

    Being a "rat pack", didn't ruin your life. You being stupid is what ruined your life. You made some poor choices, it's about time you make some new choices in life, GROW UP, and take responsibility for yourself and stop blaming some pseudo "disease".
    Hopefully the next stop for you Delta will be the plastic fat farm.
