Remember That Chain-Smoking 2-Year-Old From Indonesia? Now He's A Healthy, Cig-Free Fourth Grader!

Filed under: RehabHealthAddictionSmoking

no title

Ardi Rizal is now living a life free of addiction.

The 9-year-old Indonesian boy became a viral sensation back in 2010 when he was just a tricycle-riding, cig-puffing 2-year-old with a habit of smoking two packs a day (pictured above).

Embarrassed Indonesian government officials brought the child into rehab two years later where he managed to kick the smoking habit — but he soon replaced it with another vice.

According to reports, the boy then developed a food addiction and, by the age of 5, weighed 53 pounds — 13 pounds heavier than the recommended weight for a child his age.

Rizal's mother said he would consume three cans of condensed milk a day and other fatty foods. The boy would bang his head on the wall, a tic he picked up while smoking, if he didn't get his fix.

Kelly Osbourne has come a long way.

While the Fashion Police alum is killing it these days, the It-girl's road to success wasn't necessarily an easy one. In fact, in her new memoir, There Is No F*cking Secret: Letters From a Badass Bitch, the TV personality opened up about her struggles with drugs and alcohol — and how her addiction led her to being committed to a mental institution for three days.

Scott Baio Takes To Facebook To Explain Why He Made Those Rude AF Comments About Erin Moran's Addiction Issues & Death

scott apologizes for comments about erin drug alcohol abuse

Scott Baio is definitely kicking himself right about now.

As we previously reported, the 56-year-old made headlines this week after he said some pretty rude things about his late Happy Days costar, Erin Moran. Tsk, tsk.

In case you forgot, after Miz Moran seemingly died from complications from stage four cancer over the weekend, Scott implied that his Joanie Loves Chachi costar died due to drug and alcohol abuse. Ice cold, man.

And now, the Donald Trump supporter is regretting his unkind words about Erin's past battle with addiction. According to TMZ, Baio claims he NEVER would've brought up Erin's drug and alcohol abuse if he knew she had been battling cancer. Apparently, Scott read a report on Sunday which suggested the late actress possibly passed away from a heroin overdose. So, when he walked into his Bernie & Sid radio interview, he thought that was Erin's cause of death.

In fact, the industry vet was so harsh about his former TV love interest's death because he was upset that Erin had "supposedly" succumbed to her addiction after wrestling with sobriety for years. Of course, hours after he finished the interview, Indiana authorities revealed it was likely cancer which took the thespian from us.

The New York native says if he had known the true cause of death he would've absolutely kept his mouth shut. It's said Erin never disclosed her diagnosis to Scott or his wife Renee (who is a cancer survivor) — and Mrs. Baio spoke to her husband's costar just last month. Maybe she knew the Baios weren't the most supportive duo?? *Shrugs*

Anywho, Baio has since reiterated this defense on Facebook as he has written:

Filed under: DrugsPolitikDonald TrumpHealthAddiction

Tara Conner has a message for Trump!

Former Miss USA Tara Conner made headlines when she vocalized her support for Donald Trump, and apparently she has even more to say about POTUS now!

Despite explicitly writing in her post that she is "committed to supporting him in any way" she can, the once scandalized pageant winner is doing a bit of backtracking in a new piece, entitled "My Gratitude Does Not Mean I'm A Supporter"!

In case you didn't know, Tara was caught drinking underage and using cocaine at a nightclub back in 2006. Drumpf gave her a second chance when he allowed her to keep her title if she agreed to enter rehab, which she accepted.

Well, the 31-year-old is now an advocate for addiction recovery and spoke to The Fix about how great it was that Trump decided to look out for her back then:
