Hope Solo

I'm Seeing a Shrink

For My 'Pain and Anger'

breaking news

0326-hope-solo-tmz-02Hope Solo says she's desperately trying to change for the better -- and says she's seeing a therapist for the first time in her life to deal with "all of the pain and anger that was inside of me."

The Team USA soccer star opened up about her personal issues on her blog -- saying she spent her 30-day suspension seeking help from multiple doctors. 

As we previously reported, Solo's suspension followed an incident where Hope dropped the "Do you know who I am?" card when her husband was being arrested for DUI while driving a team van. 

"I’d been a mess emotionally and mentally, and spent most nights crying with my roommate away from the team," Hope said.

Solo says she fired off an email to teammates to let them know what she had been doing with her time off -- saying:

"I told them that for the first time in my life, I’d been seeing a therapist and dealing with a lot of my issues, and finally addressing all the pain and anger that was inside of me."

"Twice a week, I also worked with an Eastern medicine healer in Seattle who had incredible experience helping some of the greatest athletes perform at the highest levels. He really helped me see things in a different light."

"I wanted them to know that I hadn’t just taken 30 days off. Ultimately, I wanted to be a better person and teammate, and that’s what I’d been focused on."

Hope says her teammates have been incredibly supportive -- and insists the squad is now focused on the World Cup.

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce told cops that he KNEW he was gonna get cut from the team during his DUI arrest ... saying, "Do you know what happened the last time a Ravens player got a DUI?"

TMZ Sports obtained the police report detailing the DUI arrest ... in which the Baltimore County Police Dept. says Pierce admitted to taking "3 shots of Jack" before he was popped. 

As we previously reported, Pierce was initially pulled over around 2AM for speeding -- and then bombed his field sobriety test

In the report, the officer asked Pierce how much he weighs -- and Pierce slurred, "530." The officer pressed him on it and he repeated it twice before correcting himself and saying, "230 pounds."

While he was being taken to a nearby police station, Pierce reportedly uttered, "Do you know what happened the last time a Ravens player got a DUI? I'm getting cut tomorrow, not like you care." 

Pierce was clearly referring to Victor Hampton who was arrested for drunk driving in February -- and was later cut by the team.

0315-jen-aniston-tmz-02A drunk driver became an unwanted visitor at Jennifer Aniston's house Saturday night after the guy hit a curb and took out some of her plants.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... it happened at around 8:30 PM at her Bel Air estate.  It's unclear if Jen was home, but her rusty trusty security guy instantly called 911.

When cops arrived the driver told them he was not behind the wheel, but security footage from the home clearly showed otherwise. The guy flunked the field sobriety tests and was arrested.

It feels like he was stuck in second gear.

I'm Rehabilitated!

EXCLUSIVE
David Cassidy RehabDavid Cassidy is back in the saddle after successfully completing the final part of his court-ordered DUI rehab.

Cassidy has conquered his alcohol demons -- at least short term -- after his third DUI arrest since 2010. A L.A. judge signed off on his proof of completing the 9-month alcohol ed program. 

He also completed his 90-day stint at a rehab joint.

The judge had kind words for Cassidy, but he wasn't there to hear them ... David's on tour. So his attorney Steve Graff Levine conveyed the judge's praise to his client.

He's not in the clear yet ... he's still got 50 months left before his probation ends.

Shirley Partridge would be proud.
