Parents, listen up.
Next time your teenage girl offers to buy you a milkshake, go with your gut feeling and turn it down!
She may be trying to drug you!
Or at least that's what happened to two parents in North California when their teenage daughter and her friend took the two of them out for milkshakes, spiked their drinks with sleeping pills, just so they could use the internet after their bedtime!

John Galliano is set to go on trial for his anti-semitic rants back in March and his new lawyer is ready to duke it out with the prosecutors.
Aurelien Hamelle, who took over for Stephane Zerbib after being fired last month, says his client WILL testify his addiction to booze and pills are responsible for the hateful words.
Hamelle claims Galliano started hitting the bottle and popping Valium like "candy" to cope with the pressures of making money for Dior and managing his own line.
His lawyer continues:
"It's clear that John Galliano was ill when this happened. He had a triple addiction to alcohol, benzodiazepine (Valium) and sleeping pills. The combined effect of these drugs left him in a state of complete and utter abandon…When he was in that state he had no way of knowing or remembering what he said. Every witness at the cafe has said he was in an abnormal condition."
Inneresting defense, but is it strong enough?
Do U think Galliano's "addiction" defense will keep him out of jail???

"I'm probably the worst flier. I don't take Valium or nothing like that ’cause I'm scared I'll end up being the next Lindsay Lohan — popping sleeping pills. Plus I don't want to be out of it if the plane crashes. I want to be aware and call my mum."

Christie Brinkley and Bill Joel's daughter Alexa Ray Joel finally opened up about her suicide attempt.
Alexa tried to end her life last year when she swallowed a handful of sleeping pills after a break-up with her boyfriend. Fortunately, she called the ambulance and was treated at New York’s St. Vincent’s Hospital.
“I got caught up in my own head. It was a panic. I didn't want to die. I just didn't want to feel what I was feeling at that moment any more.”
Alexa says that she now has a more positive outlook on life:
“I don't like to believe in depression. I believe if you work hard enough, you can get yourself out of it. I work on myself every day. I'm trying to rearrange my life in a way to feel happy and fulfilled.”
We’re so glad her life is back on track! Suicide is never the answer — go seek help if you are considering it!!

The London coroner has finally closed Alexander McQueen's death investigation.
On Wednesday Dr. Paul Knapman announced Lee "killed himself while the balance of his mind was disturbed". He also added the designer "had a history of depression and anxiety, and was grieving his mother".
But what's more shocking is the toxicology reports, which found a "significant level of cocaine", sleeping pills, and tranquilizers in the blood samples.
The coroner also revealed some details of the suicide note McQueen left.
The letter was written on the back of the book The Descent of Man that included instructions on where to bury him. The note ended with "Please look after my dogs. Sorry, I love you. Lee."
So so sad.
