Dr. Conrad Murray -- Much Ado About Nothing

8/5/2010 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's summer of fun continues -- last night he took in some theater in Houston ... a Billy Shakespeare classic called, "Much Ado About Nothing."

" . . . happy are they that hear their detractions, and can put them to mending."

What has this photo to do with theater and "Billy" (How American!) Shakespeare?
Me thinketh that Dr. Quack is on the lookout for his next baby-mama on it.

And what exactly makes this a story worth printng???
Oh, I get it. We all had the impression that Quackie spent the majority of his spare time in strip joints and hanging around in pools with drinks. Now we are getting the "cultural" Murray.
His PR team has given us the "mourning" Murray, the "working" Murray, the "sporty" Murray, the "religious" Murray, the "heroic" Murray, the "good father" and "baby-loving" Murray.
I am just waiting for the "performing-CPR-on-a-hard-surface" Murray. I am SURE his PR team is coming up with that soon.

But all I can see is "killer" Murray and "arrogant a%%hole" Murray.

This man should be in prison period, not out enjoying Shakespear at some festival. I live in Houston and hope I never get a Glimpse of the man cause I have a few choice words for him and his cohorts at AEG!! When I get done with him he won't know what hit him!!! He should be in that tomb instead of MJ and God will get to his punishment in due time.

Hey Karen, how r u? My friends already know if we run into him here also they would see a side of me they have never seen before. No, I do not believe in violence but yes their is freedom of speech and I would use it to my heart's content. I just don't get the I didn't do anything wrong thing. He admitted to fully knocking Michael out with the propofol and leaving the room. Wow. If that isn't something wrong I don't know what is on top of the other ****.

I'm amazed he's at a function like that, and no one's walked up to him and knocked his lights out.

Not the we know of anyways. They wouldn't print it even if someone did. I know for a fact that alot of angry words have been said to him at a couple of restaurants here in Houston. My friend last thanksgiving was at one when he and some other men walked in and she said you could cut the air with a knife. got real quiet. and alot of choice words were said and than the people walked off. murray was quiet and stayed but my friend said the atmosphere was not the same than. and another time earlier this year someone else i know was somewhere he showed up at. same thing happened. so yes their is people expressing how they feel so i feel it is only a matter of time before the wrong person is pissed off. and that really will be sad. because 2 wrongs do not make a right.

That prelimary hearing may show up on (if you have cable), like Greta Van Sustern or something Channels 41 - 44 often have courtroom films. It wouldn't hurt to check it out when the time comes. I just want to beat the tar out of Murray!!

And the bird poop in the hands - it means - may everything you touch turn to ****!

About the chat thing. In your contacts there should a area for yahoo messenger. Both parties have to have it (so I found out), then when you are ready to chat - instead of clicking on the e-mail, you click on the yahoo messenger instead. A small box or tab will appear at the top with the persons name and an X on the right hand side and a smiley face on the left. There will be a pop up on the other person's end letting them know that you are online. If you want to chat, click the smiley face - if not, click the X. See, I remembered something!!!

Love me some Dr. Conrad Murray.

I wish I could shake his hand. Did the world a HUGE favor. I absolutely HATED WACKO JACKO. I am SO so so so so happy he was wiped off the planet, so happy he is dead. Was so tired of his ugly plastic surgery deformed face. What a creepy child molesting freak he was. I am glad WACKO JACKO got justice and karma just took him the f u c k out of this world. Karma looked at WACKO JACKO and just was like" You;re done. I'm taking you down FREAK!"

Me gustaría saber que les pasa a usted Tampa . Acaso usted es un(a) fracasado(a)!? Me parece que si porque hablar mal de alguien como Michael es indudablemente un ser sin corazón, despreciable, entiende!'Me duele que todavía haya gente estúpida e ignorante como l es usted. Debería de darle verguenza de lo que escribe y leerlo antes de publicar. Ojalá que usted fuera como Michael y NO le diga Wacko Jacko porque más loco es usted

Thanks for posting the Billie Jean song. One of my favourites. Here's one for u, with some never before seen MJ pictures. Dear Michael was a classic song, sung by a very young MJ, maybe 11 or 12, but he sang with a lot of feelings. Enjoy.

Revealed: Jackson family wanted to admit Michael to drugs clinic two weeks ago as he was danger to himself
By Caroline Graham
Last updated at 11:07 AM on 29th June 2009

Michael Jackson's family were so concerned about his addiction to powerful painkillers they considered forcibly admitting him to a rehabilitation clinic just two weeks before he died.
The plan - which would have involved psychiatrists trying to convince a judge he was a danger to himself and others - was abandoned only because of Jackson's resistance, and the overwhelming pressure to fulfil his concert commitments in London.
Instead, he agreed to consult a controversial therapist known as 'Doc Hollywood' and to allow a 'sober coach' to accompany him to Britain, to stay with him constantly to try to wean him off drugs.

The Mail on Sunday also reveals today that Jackson collapsed from a morphine overdose six years ago, when he was suffering acute stress over child sex allegations.
Hours earlier, American TV had aired an interview in which Jackson rebutted claims about his personal life, which was regarded as critical to his future in showbusiness.

His family feared he would die after his breathing slowed and he lost consciousness - but details of the incident have never been made public until now.
Inevitably, the revelations will intensify speculation surrounding his death last Thursday - and whether the heavy dose of painkillers he took shortly before he died may have been a deliberate attempt to extricate himself from his gruelling 50-concert London comeback.

The extent of his drugs problems was revealed as:
His manager spoke movingly of how Jackson's daughter Paris, 11, cried 'No, no, Daddy, no!' when he broke the news of her father's death.
Jackson's three orphaned children reportedly asked to live with their grandmother.
The Jackson family spoke for the first time of their devastation at his 'tragic' death and were considering whether to hold an official public memorial service.

Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Robert Murray, who was with him when he died, was quizzed by police for three hours.
A US website claimed detectives are also planning to speak to Jackson's aide Dr Tohme Tohme about an 'alleged indirect connection' between prescription drugs and the pop star's death.
Dr Murray, a Texan cardiologist, had been hired by concert promoters AEG Live to be with Jackson in London from next week until March.

Chief executive Randy Phillips said: 'Michael told me personally that he trusted this man.'
Dr Murray was reportedly living at Jackson's Hollywood home after quitting his medical practice just two weeks ago.

It was believed to be Murray who desperately tried to revive Jackson. But the emergency 911 call showed that the resuscitation attempt took place with Jackson on his bed - experts said the recovery attempt should have been attempted on the floor.
A medical source said: 'The first thing any beginner is taught about CPR is to move the patient to a hard surface. A bed is too soft.'
Dr Murray spent three hours talking to detectives last night, with his lawyer at this side, after getting in touch with LA police. It was his second meeting with officers.

'Detectives assigned to Robbery-Homicide Division met with Dr Murray and conducted an extensive interview. Dr. Murray was cooperative and provided information which will aid the investigation,' a spokesman said.
The doctor's lawyers revealed he had been hired last month to go on Jackson's tour to Britain and insisted he was being treated as a witness rather than a suspect.
'Dr. Murray helped identify the cir***stances around the death of the pop icon and clarified some inconsistencies,' a spokesman said.
'Dr. Murray has been in Los Angeles since the death of Mr. Jackson. He rode in the ambulance to the hospital and stayed at the hospital for hours comforting and consoling the Jackson family.

'Investigators say the doctor is in no way a suspect and remains a witness to this tragedy. Dr. Murray will continue to cooperate fully with the authorities.

Los Angeles coroners are now conducting a toxicology test, which will take four to six weeks, to determine what drugs were in Jackson's system.
The Jackson family have requested a second independent post-mortem now his the body has been released to the family. This was believed to be taking place in Los Angeles last night.

Before his death the family had consulted Californian drugs expert Dr Howard Samuels, known as Doc Hollywood, to try to 'save Michael from himself' because they knew he would refuse to go into rehab.
The family discussed all options with Dr Samuels and it was agreed that Jackson would detox at home under medical supervision and then be provided with the 'sober coach', who would remain with him for the duration of his 50 London concerts.
'Michael was adamant he did not have a drug problem and was not going to rehab. But in the end he relented to his family's wishes and agreed to having a sober companion,' said a source.

A typically Hollywood invention, a 'sober coach' is a trained professional who accompanies a patient full-time to ensure they stay off drugs. They administer random drug tests and liaise with psychiatrists and other doctors to keep the patient sober.
A source said: 'No one in the family had realised how serious Michael's problems were until Randy, his youngest brother, started staying over at Michael's house. He quickly realised that the situation was grave and that Michael needed urgent medical help or he might die.'
Dr Samuels is executive director of the Wonderland Centre, a £35,000-a-month private drugs and alcohol rehab facility based in the Hollywood Hills which has previously treated Lindsay Lohan and Mike Tyson.
Dr Samuels is said to be a favourite of the stars because of his unconventional treatment methods.
The source said: 'The Jackson family were recommended to call Wonderland as Dr Samuels is very experienced at dealing with high-profile celebrities.

'Many celebrities do not want to go into a conventional treatment centre because it takes them away from their professional commitments, causes negative Press and means they have to mix with ordinary junkies and, of course, they don't like to think of themselves in that way.
'Initially the family were so worried that they wanted to get a psychiatrist to go to Michael's house to perform a psychiatric evaluation to force him to go to rehab.'
Under California law, a person can be forcibly admitted to a drug detox facility if two independent psychiatrists evaluate him and convince a judge that he is a danger to himself or others.
The source said: 'It is an extremely difficult and lengthy process. When this was explained to the family, it was clearly not an option for Michael.
'Randy said they needed to save Michael from himself.His drug use was so severe, yet Michael was in total denial about how bad it was.

'He was having injections of the painkiller Demerol first thing in the morning and last thing at night, along with a host of other powerful drugs. He was refusing to eat and was popping pills constantly.
'The treatment was due to start this weekend. When someone is in as bad a state of dependence as Michael was you cannot detox them suddenly.
'The plan was to gradually start weaning him off the drugs this coming week. He would have had a team of doctors and nurses on call to deal with withdrawal symptoms. That was the plan.'
Last night a spokesman for Dr Samuels refused to comment on Michael Jackson, citing doctor-patient confidentiality.
Meanwhile, removal vans last night started emptying Jackson's rental home of his personal possessions.

A source said that Michael's father Joe 'was concerned that people might try to remove some of his possessions, as happened when Princess Diana died'.
