Was this "story" really neccessary? I'd love to know how many times the TMZ "Staff" has been out, totally blitzed or high. This was two years ago. Why ruin the girl's chances by posting this crappy story. She's no worse than the Irish girl who works as a bartender and SERVES the stuff.

The hair has got to go, and yes the song she sang last night was awful. She seems like a nice person, I just hope she learned her lesson on drinking and driving. You never know who you will kill when you drink and drive. I can't vote for her now because of my beliefs of drinking and driving, this is just my personal opinion. Please don't rag on me because of this, you will never understand unless it has happened to you.

Do you guys REALLY need to diss people like this who are trying to straighten out and fly right?

I would appreciate it if you people who do not worship God would NOT use His name in vain . . . casually, as an exclamation . . . such as, "In God's name" and "my God." If you check Exodus 20:3 you will see that people who throw His name around like this have already declared themselves guilty before Him. (Note: You can be forgiven and not suffer punishment if you repent: change your ways and use His name respectfully in prayer, song or discussions about Him.) Thank you.

Always trying to dig up dirt!! DUI was in her past, leave it alone. She is a great singer and she's still a good nurse.

Surely this isn't headline news. Typical though. Someone working hard, climbing upward toward a goal gets smeared.
