Maria @ No. 15, I thought your comment was pretty accurate until you referred to addicts as, "losers" and said you wished they would all die.
First off, Heath Ledger and the Olson twin were living on the east Coast; Applegate's boyfriend was found on the West Coast -- in Hollywood. Ya still think they have the same dealers? Not that it really matters.

If you want to call these people losers, go ahead, but keep in mind that the drug epidemic is not just reserved for wealthy, Hollywood celebs.

It's this "loser" stigma that causes addicts, their loved ones, and, in the case of Hollywood, their agents, to burrow underground so as not to call attention to the problem. A much-needed approach to this problem would be for these people to come out of the "losers" dressing room and call attention to the burgeoning addiction crisis here in the U.S.

Celebs. possess the power, influence and money to effectively publicize and promote the need for improved drug and alcohol treatment services here in the U.S. Instead of making disparaging comments about people such as Heath Ledger (R.I.P) and others, we should be encouraging celebrities in active addiction to come OUT and get help while they still can, so that the nation's attention can be turned to the problem in a constructive way, and to generate funding and support for this most worthwhile cause.

Obviously you don't know her that well or you would have her phone number and be able to call her instead of posting on a gossip site that she will never see.

This is such sad news. Mr. Lee Grivas, the 26-year-old boyfriend of Christina Applegate, was found dead in his apartment. He was no one famous. Why are you saying that "all young Hollywood..." He was just the boyfriend of Christina Applegate, who happens to be famous. I mean the pair met through a "dancer" in her Broadway show "Sweet Charity". I'm sure her dancer friend was concerned about getting Christina back out on the dating scene after her marriage fell apart. I don't, nor won't disagree that it was probably prescription drug overdose, but it seems that the doctor's are giving them out so freely in Hollywood, I'd believe that some one of a higher authority would find it in their hearts to look in to them....those doctors.

15. They are all druggies. He died just like Heath Ledger. I am very disappointed with young Hollywood.
They are all a bunch of losers. Christinia and the Olsen Addict are friends. They all have the same
drug dealer. They call all die as far as I'm concerned. LOSERS
