Oh no. We hope this was some sort of mix-up, not evidence of a bigger, more serious problem.
Last night, Heather Locklear was taken to an L.A. hospital after she ingested a lethal mix of prescription drugs and alcohol. We hear that it was her sister who found Heather yesterday afternoon in "danger" and immediately called 911. Once the paramedics arrived, she was deemed worse enough condition to be hospitalized.
According to a hospital rep,
You guys… ya gotta watch this clip from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!!!
Kim Richards is just goin' on and on and on… about stuff we're not even sure she's aware of!
Okay, seriously though… this rambling could or could not have been the side effects of the prescription drugs she was taking. Soo.. we're REALLY glad she got some help in the rehab she reportedly entered.
We love her –kookiness and all– wayyy too much for this to go overboard!!
The Drug Enforcement Administration is hot on the trail of a group of scammers posing as DEA agents so they can rip off unsuspecting Americans who have purchased prescriptions online.
Impostors call their victims and claim they have been indicted on drug charges for illegally purchasing prescriptions through a website registered in the Dominican Republic.
One such victim was a Hollywood producer who immediately called his lawyer to deal with the charges. One of the "agents" told the lawyer his client could "make the case go away" if he paid a civl penalty.
Fortunately, the lawyer grew suspicious and taped the next phone conversation to hand over to the REAL Drug Enforcement Agency.
It turns out these con artists are using names of actual agents and have already convinced a number of people to send in money in hopes of their "indictment" going away.
Ugh! Such a shame! We hope these guys get caught and get what they deserve!
We hope this isn't the case, but unfortunately it is possible.
Earlier today, Amy Winehouse's family released a statement about her toxicology report, in which they claimed that there were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death, but there was alcohol present.
They said that it couldn't yet be determined if alcohol played a role in her death or not.
Now, there's some question as to whether or not Amy had prescription drugs in her system at the time of her death, because there was only mention made of illegal drugs in her family's statement.
When asked about prescription drugs,
Adam Jasinski, who won Big Brother and used his $500,000 prize to fund a prescription drug ring, has pled guilty to those charges - as well as failure to file a tax return in 2008 - and has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.
Such a ridiculous waste of a prize, when it could have gone to someone who needed it.
This guy deserves everything he's getting.

Michael Lohan announced that he’s moving to California to open a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. He has reportedly recruited daughter Lindsay Lohan to help pick the name — she wants to call it “My Home Away From Home.”
We kid! But seriously, why the hell is he so interested in building a rehab center right now? Is he turning a new leaf and becoming a good and charitable human being? Maybe. Is he hoping that a rehab center would be the perfect setting for a new reality TV show?
Michael says he wants to make the center very holistic and that he will not tolerate prescription drug use.
"I'm going to have a protocol that will be have to be followed. I don't believe in prescription drugs. If people come in on them they're going to have to get off of them, otherwise they'll be looking for another rehab."
He already has investors and therapists lined up and is in the process of “negotiating the location.”
Well, we wish him the best. It’s hard to hate on someone too much for opening a center that will help people. But so help us if he gets a reality TV show about that rehab center!
