Oprah Comments On Lindsay Lohan's Recovery, Says She Will Offer Advice

Oprah Comments On Lindsay Lohan's Recovery, Says She Will Offer Advice

Commented Aug 10, 2013 at 09:17:33 in Celebrity

“I wish she'd mentored Cory Monteith. Maybe she'd have been able to talk him out of going to Vancouver when he was still so raw and vulnerable. I wish Lindsay Lohan the best in her long road to recovery and If Oprah can help that's just great. Addiction is a terrible disease and addicts need all the help and support they can get.”

“I voted twice for Obama and while I know he's been faced with racism and hatred from the right making it extraordinarily difficult to make the changes he wanted (and wants) to make to better the lives of millions Americans, I also agree with Matt Damon in feeling that he broke up with me. Drones? They kill lots of innocent people, children included. How do drones differ from suicide bombers? I know the situation is dire, with people we call terrorists wanting to destroy America and Americans, but when are we going to examine the policies we put in place that make us so hated? Such policies go back a long, long way. Sooner or later the bill has to be paid. In no way am I either condoning or excusing acts of terror, no matter where they come from. All I'm saying is we have to look in our back yard first. As for the NSA, I'm of two minds about that. Yes, terror is a real threat and listening in on chatter is no doubt necessary to prevent attacks. But the NSA is behaving like the KGB at the moment. I don't think they really need my emails or phone calls and probably not yours either. Obama is a constitutional lawyer and in this matter at least the constitution is being trod upon. I expected better from him.”
Cory Monteith Spent Time With Sober Friends Before His Death

“Thank you for your kind words. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you've seen. I've been hospitalized for major depression. I was in for 3 months. The doctor who admitted me (in much the same way that Cory "signed himself in" to rehab) warned me that if I thought entering the hospital was a trauma it was nothing compared to how I would feel upon re-entering the world. I couldn't imagine this being true as the trauma I had experienced when I went in was horrifying. But he was right. I believe Cory must have felt the same way and yet he tried to jump right back into his Hollywood life. I find it deeply disturbing that those close to him didn't do more research on what it would be like for him. And yes, I believe most who become addicts do so because they're self-medicating unbearable pain. I've just been lucky not to become one. Pure luck. Drugs always scared me (except for pot). But Cory started drinking and smoking pot at 12. Clearly there was pain and trauma there.”

“I am still sick over his death and I am no teen star struck fan. But one thing was clear: He was the heart of the show. As a former professional actress I can pay him the highest compliment which is you could never see him "working." He simply WAS Finn Hudson. But Finn Hudson was also Cory Monteith and the openness and vulnerability that read so well on camera came from a deep place inside of him. He was very much in touch with the pain in his life and he used it constructively in his work. That's what the best actors do. But with his painful background I can well imagine that he perhaps felt different from his fellow actors, many of whom had been working since childhood. Certainly none of them ever worked as a WalMart greeter. The pressures of celebrity are enormous, Put that together with the disease of addiction and you've got serious problems. 30 days in rehab was a grain of sand in the ocean for Cory. He needed way more than that and then a halfway house before re-entering his life. But I can imagine his fear of the publicity that would come with that making someone who was already "other" even more so. His death is incredibly sad. Addiction is terribly sad and my heart goes out to anyone and everyone suffering from it. I keep asking myself why. Why? There are many theories flying around, but we'll never really know. F&F”

“You spoke so beautifully. As a drug rehab therapist for 15 yrs, I've seen the destruction that alcohol/drugs can do and I think the vast majority of addicts have had a lot of pain in their lives, which is why they turn to drugs to kill the pain. You expressed this so beautifully. Faved.”

“Yup. I've honestly never watched the show but I've seen Cory give interviews and other shows..he seemed like a good person. Sorry for his family and his girlfriend.”

“Maybe she feels safer being with her friends than being alone with overwhelming grief which can be frightening. She doesn't look particularly happy in this photo. And as for "looking ravishing" she always looks ravishing. That's her natural look and I don't think she has to work hard to achieve it. The headline implies she's "over" Cory's death. That is frankly insane to say nothing of mean. Leave this girl alone.”

“Cory Monteith's tragic relapse and accidental death might have been avoided had those who staged the intervention that sent him off to rehab had informed themselves about what was needed for him AFTER he came out of rehab. Recovering addicts coming out of rehab are raw, ashamed, insecure, anxious and extremely fragile. They are also often resentful. They need a structured support system and most of all a mentor or sponsor who knows what it's like to be addicted. Going to Mexico on vacation the day he got out and attending celebrity functions was the very last thing he needed. And going to Vancouver alone, with all its reminders of his addiction, was the last straw for him. Cory was a talented actor. He was also very talented at hiding the demons that drove him to drugs. When I think of the anxiety and loneliness he must have been living with I feel sick. I won't be watching Glee anymore. Way too painful.”

“What is WRONG with Chicago????????”

mereworth1954 on Jul 21, 2013 at 17:04:16

“Come to Chicago and drive in any neighborhood south of the Loop (if you dare...) and you'll find out for yourself what's wrong in Chicago - the people who live there.

My mother was born in the Roseland area in 1916. It was a safe neighborhood back then and she used to tell me how people used to sleep on the front porches in the summer, the kids would roller skate and play baseball in the streets and she used to walk to school every day with her younger brothers and never worried about being shot or attacked or dodging gang members and drug dealers.

No shootings, gangs, drugs or street violence. It was a nice place to live and raise families.

Not anymore and it hasn't been that way for decades now.

So, what's wrong with Chicago are the people who live there now. THAT'S what's wrong with Chicago.”

“Not true. Ryan Murphy staged an Intervention with Cory in March and Cory walked out of Murphy's office to rehab. Cory's addiction began at the age of 12. The disease had plenty of time to create serious and long lasting changes in his brain. Addiction is a disease. It doesn't just go away after a month in rehab. It seems his friends and mentors did whatever they could to help him, but in the end the disease won in the same way that cancer can end a person's life no matter how hard they fight. Blame has no place in this tragic death. Only compassion and a greater understanding of the nature of addiction belongs here.”
