I bet she recycles!That seems to be more important to everyone than the dangers of drunk driving. Why can't people get it? This selfishness and entitlement attitude has to stop.There is no excuse to drink and drive! If you want to poisen yourself, do it alone in your house and don't involve anyone else. I guess because this has become a pattern with her... the drunk, the state of Ca., Orange county, and Newport Beach are seriously liable and could be charged with premeditated murder if an innocent person dies because of this nasty drunk! STOP DRINKING AND DRIVING!!!

sure....right...idiot    

This is crazy. A few days ago a friend of mine posted a link to a video of Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" video that she is in. A few minutes ago I googled her name and was checking out info and pictures on her. And then.......here she pops up on TMZ! It sounds like she has had a serious substance abuse problem for many years. I SINCERELY hope she gets help and gets clean once-and-for-all (especially for the sake of her kids). She is a beautiful woman even now (keep in mind I haven't seen her latest mug shot, but I'm hoping she still is). I don't want her to hurt herself, or worse, some innocent person/s.

C'mon Harvey, when they get this old, and they were never really known for their looks (only their bodies), it's time to let 'em retire, whether they want to or not. At this point, the 50ish woman with the silly whore's name ("Tawny"?? Really? I'd rather have a 12x12 unrecognizable tramp stamp than that hooker name!) looks like Bea Arthur (and yes, I'm taking into account Bea has been cremated).

Can't tell    

Honestly... again? Was she not jailed for this prior? Time to throw the book at her, before she hurts herself or most importantly, others. I really like her name unlike the person above who would rather have a tramp stamp (really???). Her name is quite lovely - her actions are NOT.
