I feel bad for the guy. Some comments seen here seem to be from people who have never done anything wrong. One particular comment maker - seen more than once - seems to have a personal issue going on. Does the pain and mistakes of one make him feel like a better person? Unless you have experienced trauma in your own life or of those in your life you shouldn't judge. In those cases I like to say YOUR TURN WILL COME. Here's to wishing Dourdan all the best.

H B Rider has it sooooo right....I saw my beautiful son get hooked on pain pills after a surfing accident that eventually led to prescribed oxycontin and Fentanyl. And it was just a small jump to street drugs. He says he is on methodone now but he still looks pretty wired to me and acts just as inconsistent. We have only seen each other once in two years. I miss the person he used to be and I don't know if that person will ever reappear again.

To Stephenie:
Just so you know your son probably is on Methadone and still looks wired because Methadone is not only now used as a form of #2 controlled narcotic pain medication, but if you take a few more than your supposed to you can get high and addicted to them just like oxycontin, percocet, vicodin, morphine, dilaudid, etc.... I hope everything goes well for you and him, and good luck! I've seen too many friends and family addicted to pain meds after accidents, and just recently Methadone after drug treatment. May God be with you and everything work out for the best!

Thought the most recent show was interesting as it has him drugged out (prescription meds) along with alcohol then being implicated in a murder - fiction becoming reality or ?????

Fame does not affect everyone the same. It is not a one-size-fits-all pycho-social phenomena. I never realized there are so many jealous, hateful, and vindictive people out here - talk about 'throwing a brotha UNDER the bus! I only know that Gary is one who places a high priority on his privacy and he hasn't been shy about sharing that aspect of himself with the media.

As a Gary Dourdan fan, I pray that he can soon put this 'situation' behind him and move forward to continue to provide his fans with projects that we can continue to support on his behalf. Gary has two beautiful children who depend on their dad and need for him to be there for them for many years to come. Those of us who are so inclined, should rally to provide him with unconditional love, support, and the PRIVACY he respectfully requests to allow him to resolve these matters.

Being referred to in disparaging terms is not helping his situation but sheds a lot of light upon the ones who spews forth this brand of maliciousness ad nauseum. Anyone who is THAT NASTY really doesn't have room to critique GD, ANYONE ELSE, or even call themselves anyone's friend/spouse/sibling, etc.

You people that think it's alright to take drugs and you have a 100 excuses why celebs do-it's WRONG and even if you have problems there are other ways to deal with life besides taking drugs. Some of you that are ok with peeps taking drugs, you must do it too! great, we hope you don't have children!! trust us, we are not jealous that this idiot has money and can buy everything, he better buy a rehab and have the main room for himself!! We would rather be poor and decent than be rich and a doper!!!

Yet again another sad story! Why is drugs so inviting? Such a talented actor and look caught up in the world of drugs and addiction. Why is it so HARD to just say NO to drugs. On the show isn't he addicted to prescription drugs? Now look at him in real life. He didn't need to literally take his chacater life into real life situation. WOW such a HOT man making all the wrong choices. We all have a choice in life to do the RIGHT thing or go down the wrong Path. It's like SOME Hollywood actors can't handle FAME or know how to balance out their life & being a celebrity. I don't feel a bite sorry for any of these Hollywood actors that turn to the dark side of FAME. They have all the money in the world to live GREAT and Give back. The only Giving back is to the DRUG dealers and to the BARS on the Sunset strip!!!!!
