Yep! Tell it like it is #10!!! We indeed would never get "paid" to go into rehab!! And I think it is terrible as many times as she's been in rehab that she STILL blames her Mother for everything. There comes a point in life where you have to take control of your actions, take responsibility for them, and realize that no matter how 'out of control' you are, you are still held accountable!! I am a recovering addict myself from prescription pills, and most everybody relapses-but you still have to take what you learned from treatment with you, even after you relapse, and continue to do so, or you will fail every, single time. That's why, in my book, most celebrities fail repeatedly and get by with the DUI's, dirty drug tests, etc....but for us "normal" people in society, who are truly 'sick and tired of being sick and tired' of the vicious circle of addiction, try to take the tools from treatment with us, and learn even through relapse. Because we don't get "paid" or "free" rehab treatment-in fact, we in the REAL world have to wait weeks, sometimes months for a bed to become available! Our judges and probation officers aren't as leniant as the ones in California are with celebs with money and their high-powered status!!! But the majority of us know that if we mess up more than once or twice, we are GONE!!!

Tawny was soooo fine in The Perils of Gwendolyn film back in 1984. Sad to see how the booze and drugs have made her look so much older than she is.

Tawny, honey, are you willing yet? Forget the rehabs. You know there are plenty of rooms you can walk into in So.O.C. where there are hands willing to help you. Chuck's a good man, a gentleman, and your children would thrive in his care. Walk into the rooms, we are saving you a seat. It's not to late. It CAN be good, and happy, joyous and free. You really don't need another rehab. Just be willing to be willing. God bless.

I was friends with Tawny in Junior High School in El Cajon, CA. She was the sweetest, cutest, and most caring person anyone was lucky of enough to know. She was beautiful,yes, but beyond that, she was genuine and kind to EVERYONE. Maybe she was just too sweet and giving and the Hollywood vultures swooped down and she was not armed for the outcome. I ran into her at a swap meet in El Cajon in High School, after she had moved to another town (Pacific Beach She was still the friendly, lively person she was four years prior. She loved horses and animals. Any problems she may have incurred afterwards was the influence surrounding her - people should quit being so judgmental. She is a beautiful person in and out. Sorry she got involved with the Hollywood crowd who are basically users and losers.
