Everyone knows that the first step to recovery from a drug addiction is throwing other people under the same bus as you so you've got company!
Courtney Love's claiming to have found love and light in her newfound life without drugs. Part of her journey to a better self has been opening up in new interviews about her past and problems with drugs. Well, actually, it seems more like she's opening up about other people's problems with drugs and how she got involved with them. Like yesterday, she said she knew she had to start cutting back on her pill usage when she saw she was taking more than Britney Spears. It was an eye-opening experience for her. (Probably more so for Brit-Brit!)
targets stories involve some younger starlets, namely Kelly Osbourne and Lindsay Lohan. Court reveals that a few years ago, she actually had to save Kelly's life via CPR after she blacked out from some kind of overdose. She recalls:
"I still can't escape the stigma [of a drug addict] for some reason," Love said. "Even people like Kelly Osbourne feel free to f–k with me … This is a girl whose life I have saved twice, once with CPR and another time with CPR and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma. It wasn't long ago when Kim Stewart was screaming, 'Courtney, what are we going do? Kelly Osbourne is blue on the floor!' Kelly wasn't doing that well back then."
Boy, Kim Stewart sounds like the girl you want in a pinch, huh? And we're sure, if this story is even true, that Kelly is just thrilled that Courtney is finding inner peace by revealing her own deep, dark secrets.
Courtney then goes on to explain how some young girls of Hollywood actually come to her for guidance when they hit rock bottom - like Lindsay. Courtney explains:
"Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself. I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay's father called me for advice every day … What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?"
Um, do we sense a set up for a reality show? Junkie Auntie Mame: The Courtney Love Experience, coming to TLC this fall!
How about no!
We can't say we're too pleased that Courtney is laying out other people's dirty secrets for attention. If she keeps this up, her phone won't be ringing at all anymore!
