Lisa Rinna has made a lot of enemies in her short tenure on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but none of her relationships are as strained as her "friendship" with Kim Richards.

Judy's third spouse said that, in the 1950s, the star slit her own throat in their Beverly Hills home because of her deep depression, recalling:

"Judy had cut her throat with a razor blade…. What demons inhabited her soul just when life seemed so rich and productive? It was a gigantic puzzlement that she would poison herself with pills, and that the toxic reaction to whatever she swallowed would create an impulse for self-mutilation."

Doctors ultimately saved her life, but Sid remembered another terrifying attempt years later.

The businessman explained Ms. Garland had cut her wrists while they were staying in a Washington D.C. hotel:

The Internet has been swirling with suspicion over George Michael's sudden death.

In the wake of his Christmas Day passing, the former Wham! frontman's autopsy results were "inconclusive," which led many to ponder if the 53-year-old's death was due to health problems, an overdose, or something else all together.

Now, new revelations from Michael's former manager have made the music icon's death all the more puzzling.

Corey Feldman and Carrie Fisher

Many of Carrie Fisher's colleagues are understandably still reeling from the iconic star's sudden passing earlier this week.

One person who was greatly affected by the Star Wars actress' generosity was Corey Feldman, who starred alongside the 60-year-old and Tom Hanks in the 1989 comedy The ‘Burbs.

It was during their time together on set that Corey says Carrie tried to help the then-18-year-old get off drugs — something she'd personally been through herself.

The 45-year-old remembers to People:

"She was just very supportive and very positive and sweet. Every minute on the set with her was a pure joy, honestly. We never had an argument; we never had an awkward moment."
