Homeless Chick

Bags Another Celeb

4/2/2008 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She may be homeless, but as far as stars in Bev Hills are concerned, she's queen for a day -- everyday.

Josh Brolin is BFFs with "Queen on the Scene" and he isn't alone -- she's also buds with Nicollette Sheridan, Betty White and Reba McEntire.

Hey, mean people, lay off Queen.

I usually see her when I get my brows done at Anastasia across the street. I'm no expert, but I think she has schizophrenia. She rocks back and forth, repeats herself. and occasionally doesn't make sense...what's called "word salad." She's incredibly devout, and says that that God protects her.

The last time I saw her, I gave her a few dollars and asked her if she needed anything. What did she ask for? More money? Cigarettes? Booze? No, she asked for a clean shirt because she said she was going to court in a few days.

When she slows down enough to engage in conversation, she has alluded to being sexually and physically abused over a period of time. It seemed that there had been a recent incident of abuse w/ a boyfriend and that's why she left where she was living.

Her teeth are perfect, her clothes are always in good condition, and she always appears (and smells) clean. I did wonder about her good hygiene. It was a red flag. Maybe she was a scam artist. But after repeated conversations, IMHO, Queen is definitely homeless and suffers from mental illness. With respect to her good hygiene. I've seen her exit what looks like a closet in the parking structure. It may be a bathroom.

I used to work in Venice. There's a lot of homeless folks there, too. One trend I can attest to: most homeless people don't want to get off the street. Believe me, I tried to hook two street people up w/ local facilities like Ocean Park Church and Back on Broadway. One man had been 3 paychecks away from the street. He lost his job, and it was downhill from there. He was too proud to call his family back in Boston. Drugs were also a factor. He was obviously educated. I don't know why some people "prefer" chronic homelessness. Perhaps others on the TMZ board can explain.

Ok, off my soapbox

It's easier to turn the other cheek then to see a terrible epidemic that we Americans choose to ignore. There is a story for every person on the street. It's just easier for the lucky to ignore. Man this is depressing, but important. Hey TMZ, apologize for the AI post and put something up we can enjoy. We aren't suppose to come here to discuss serious topics.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Josh is hot and he has good taste. Diane Lane is always been a favorite of mine from "The Outsiders", to "Under the Tuscan Sun."

You won't get one because you don't have one idiot. TMZ will not apologize because of your long rant. Go the hell away and get on the right post for that stupid crap.

Pebbles, having been homeless as a teenager I can tell you I prefered finding my own safe places rather than the very unsafe shelters where one is locked in with mentally ill folks who should be in institutions but, because most people don't care about the mentally ill, are left to rot on the streets. In addition to the psych folks, the shelters were also full of drug addicts who were violent and would steal everything including your shoe laces the moment you went to sleep.

Our "homeless epidemic" began when Reagan emptied our mental institutions in to the streets, insisting that the private sectors and families would step up to care for the mentally ill. Ever tried, as a parent, to care for an adult child who is schizophrenic, so hears voices of demons telling him to kill you? Ever had an elderly family member try to "care" for a person with a paranoid disorder that makes them think the devil is telling them to kill the elderly family member? Ever try to get a job for someone who has auditory hallucinations and butters every page of his SSI and section 8 housing application paperwork? Ever try to house in the community someone who believes satan is coming out of the electrical outlets? Thanks, Ronnie. Leaving caring for the profoundly mentally disturbed up to the families really worked well. Now we abandon them to the streets, and jail them. Thank you, Ronnie, for a kinder, gentler nation. Even in Saudi Arabia they take better care of their mentally ill!

Justice? You think an apology will make a difference to a guy who just lost his mom? Believe it or not he probably could care less about a gossip website right now. TMZ doesn't carry as much weight as you think to the people it gives attention to. Get a freaking life and put your "do good" into the real world and make a difference. You aren't doing a damn thing here. Get a life moron.
