McCready's 'Rehab' Co-Star


'The Tragedy Is Astounding'

2/18/2013 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mindy McCready's "Celebrity Rehab" co-star Mackenzie Phillips could hardly speak today in L.A. after news broke of McCready's suicide -- claiming, "The tragedy is just astounding."

A visibly upset Phillips said, "She was my friend. She was a really good person. I loved her very much."

She added, "[Mindy] was funny. She was smart. She was loving. She was kind. She was incredibly talented ... I'm in grief and it's very raw."

McCready and Phillips were roommates on the 3rd season of "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew in 2010, and remained friends.

As we reported, McCready was found dead at her home in Arkansas yesterday after suffering what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She was 37.

Not blame she tried to killed herself before Dr. Drew came in the picture damn she already had problems. People are always quick to blame other people before getting their information correct. Know wonder celebrities keep to themselves.

Espically Pinsky, self-proclaimed addiction specialist? Celebrity Re-hab. How disgusting is that. His patients are no better or worse off and he's laughing right to the bank.

She can burn in hell for killing the dog. This rehab show doesn't have a good track record.

Addicts and codependents have no boundies. They think they're all the greatest of friends with "instant" emotional connection and they all say "I love you" to people they do drugs or rehab with.

It means nothing. I bet she hasn't talked to McCready in years. Bet she didn't even know she had another baby.

Long term drug abusers know nothing about real intimacy.

The only thing that upsets me in this horrid story about a selfish drug-ho is that she shot her own pet dog. What a horrid person. Glad she is gone. Drugs are bad kids! God gave you a brain to stay away from harmful things.

She killed herself because she murdered her boyfriend. If her children hadn't been removed from the home, she would have killed them, too.

this womans friends and family failed her, with her history she should not have been left alone following the suicide of her husband.

it could be nice for a change if paparazzi got dick in his ass. then i'd like to harass you on the street and shove a mike on your face with question: is there any pleasant memory you would like to share... on the other hand that dick might be your dream come true.

I bet a lot of these music industry and movie stars who USED TO be somewhat rich and famous for a short time just cannot handle it when the good times don't continue to happen.

I bet Mindy was like a lot of child stars in Hollywood who just fall apart when their acting careers fizzle out. They think in "all or none" ways ... if they cannot have the huge mansion, fancy cars, clothes and the millionaire lifestyle then they think life just isn't worth living. So they self destruct ... or kill themselves.

Showbiz can be a cruel business. Everyone who tries to make it big in show business should know this from the very beginning. It's like trying to mine for gold. Some people hit it big and are set for life, some people manage to mine smaller amounts of gold and make a living for a long time, and others might just find a little gold and that's all they ever get.

No one is to blame for the murder of Mindy's baby daddy, dog, or herself, but Mindy.
