This just makes it all the more tragic.

Although the autopsy on Leslie Carter has yet to determine the cause of her sudden death, sources close to the family have revealed that the sister of Nick and Aaron Carter was battling an addiction to prescription medication, and had moved from Canada to Upstate New York in an attempt to beat it.

While the family members she was staying with had tried to make the environment as safe and sober for her as possible, they left her alone for an hour to run some errands, and when they returned, she was unconscious.

Heartbreaking. Especially to think she was trying to get herself help.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this impossibly difficult time.

May Leslie R.I.P.

What The Tabs Are Talking About!

what the tabs are talking about dec 14

Jennifer Aniston preggo with twins AND a Mileybird drug overdose? Once again, U've caught our attention Star Magazine! LOLz!

That's right, folks! According to Star, Jen is not only PREGNANT, but she's having twins! Wowsa!

And as a side story, they've got details on Miley Cyrus' drug overdose…..oh wait, it says "drug overdose scare." So, what does that mean? She took a hit of marijuana Salvia, coughed, and one of her buddies got paranoid??? LOLz!

In royal news, the tabs are also quite fixated on William and Kate this week! Not only are we STILL talking about the royal wedding, but apparently Kate's parents weren't invited to the palace for Xmas! Awk-ward!

Other than that, the tabloids are keepin' us up-to-date with KStew/RPatz relationship drama….and of course KimK/KHump post-relationship dramz as well!

Speaking of Kim Kardashian…it appears that Oprah called her a phony! We're not 100% sure why, but the cover of this week's Enquirer leads us to believe that Ms. Winfrey is skeptical of Kim's benevolent agenda in Haiti!

Quite a week for the tabs (above, and below)! Which of these stories intrigues U the most???

X Factor: Did Katie Waissel Push Her Ex-Fiancee To Attempt Suicide??

Filed under: Music MinuteLove LineX FactorReality TV

katie-waissels-ex-fiancee-gareth-russell-reveals-that-she-pushed-him-to-commit-suicide

And the controversy keeps following this one!

New reports have emerged that X Factor's Katie Waissel was so awful to her former fiancee that he attempted suicide!

32-year-old Gareth Russell claims that he got together with her in 2006, and was instrumental securing her first break as a supporting act for Andy Abraham, but the opportunity went to her head, which affected her attitude and how she treated him!

As a result, Russell endured constant bullying from the contestant while the two were together, and explains:

"She'd call me overweight, fat slob, a fat bastard, a waste of space. She'd complain that I was 'too Northern' and dressed like 'Northern riff-raff.' this went on pretty much every day. People will think I'm an idiot for putting up with it. But she just pickled my head. She was like a little devil child."

He even claims that she would ridicule him when he watched The X Factor!

He continues:

"She always slated it. She'd say 'Why are you watching this rubbish? They're all wasters.' She called them 'a joke'. And she'd say the judges didn't know what they were talking about."

In April 2007, Russell overdosed on pills, and had to be rushed to the hospital. Luckily, he survived, although Waissel was with him during his recovery, they broke up two days later after a huge argument.

In light of these new reports, a spokesperson for The X Factor released the following statement:

"Katie had a relationship with Gareth that ended some time ago. She was supportive as possible during his difficult time."

Just awful.

But we certainly think there is more than this side to the story.

Obviously, we sympathize with what he endured, but Russell is a grown man, and even if Katie treated him as poorly as he claims, we hope he takes accountability for his own actions in the relationship. Nobody forced him to stay with her as long as he did and certainly nobody forced him to attempt to take his own life.

But abusive relationships, even if they're verbal, can be tricky and difficult to get out of in their own right, so who knows what really went on?

We're just thankful that nobody was seriously hurt and that these two are not together anymore!

What do U think?? Should Katie be held accountable for what happened to her former fiancee?

Filed under: Sad Sad

ggwenn2520423.jpg

Poor thing!

Yesterday, comedian Greg Giraldo, best known for his spots on the Comedy Central roasts, was rushed to hospital in New Brunswick, NJ after he was found by a friend unconscious and overdosed on prescription pills.

The hospital says that Greg is in critical but stable condition and that they're not classifying this as a suicide.

Happens more often than we realize.

Here's hoping Greg recovers soon!
