Rehab Works for Some Mammals

9/1/2007 4:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It may not cure some Hollywood stars, but rehab worked well for a Chinese celebrity. Once addicted to heroin, Big Brother was in treatment for over a year and will finally be released in the coming weeks.
An elephant and Amy Winehouse
Big Brother is an elephant.

The bull elephant was fed heroin-laced bananas by illegal traders so they could control him. According to China Daily, once the elephant was reclaimed from traders, he had become addicted to heroin, posing a danger to people around him if denied his fix. Remind you of anyone?

After being diagnosed as a heroin addict by park authorities in Hainan, they spent a year weaning him off the dope with methadone, regular bathing and massage.

If it can work for an elephant ...

Amy Winehouse is one of the MOST talented Singer/Musicians. I respect her talent and PRAY she finds her way out of the Darkness of Addiction. I did, Amy. You, can.

What a fantastic story about the elephant. I want to more about him!

As for Amy, she'll do what she wants. She's the Patti Smith of this generation. Love her, but man, she's a mess.

There is help for Amy Winehouse, if she chooses to accept it, and hopefully she'll conquer her demons. She's very talented.

The story about what was done to the elephant is heartbreaking. ANY animal abuse is indefensible, unforgiveable and criminal. Animal abusers will burn in hell.

I think she's insane, or maybe because she's always doped up, it's the drugs that make her look the way she does, but DAYUM girl, get ye butt-ugly face over to a dentist, stat!

I checked the comments on here wondering how many people had made a comparison on the intelligence of Big Brother vs. that of Amy Winehouse. Surprisingly, no one had.

Regular bathing??? Amy's probably never even heard of it.

If I hear that song "Rehab" one more time, I think I'll have to turn to heroin myself. Most celebrities are not that pretty, really, but this girl has to be one of the ugliest. Her voice sounds like my 90-year-old chain-smoking grandmother's.
