Teen idol Leif Garrett (above, photographed in the 1970’s with then girlfriend Nicollette Sheridan) was on top of the world until 1979. He was eighteen when he wrecked his car while high on drugs and paralyzed his best friend from the waist down. Since then he’s wrestled with drug problems but seems to have stayed away from cars because his past few drug arrests have happened at Metrolink stations. This week he was locked up for having heroin in his shoe and despite his down and out appearance, he DID manage to scrounge up the $10.000 bail. A perfect candidate for Celebrity Rehab.

    does celeb rehab really help these ‘i need to be on tv’ folks. it’s good tv, but a&e’s intervention is MUCH better and seems more sincere.

    That looks like a tweeker scab between his eyebrows,so he’s doing some meth or coke too.

    I agree with both previous comments. But haven’t I seen him appearing on Tru TV’s Dumbest criminal’s or whatever it’s called? Seems like maybe he should be starring on it as a guest instead of as a commentator! I have no pity for these fools who have it all and throw it all away because of drugs. What colossal fools!!

    Here is another one that needs to be locked up and throw away the key.

    Yes Reta he is on Smoking Gun’s Dumbest show. I have never done drugs or know anyone who has (except pot) so I honestly don’t know what to look for when someone is high on the big stuff. I want to go back and watch the Smoking Gun shows to see if I look at him different now, what are the signs? What am I missing?

    He was an unremarkable nobody at the height of his fame. Who cares?

    What kind of a fascist nation is this turning into when one can’t even get on or off a subway without being searched for drugs? What an egregious affront to what little is left of our once much-vaunted “civil liberties”!

    How do “tweaker scabs” happen? Is it from injecting there, or people get fidgety and pick things, or there are skin infections? What other ways does it alter the appearance? I have seen some “one year later” pics on a website somewhere that I *think* were from tweakers, and they seemed shockingly older, washed out skin and hair, hair was brittle, bad complexions like acne — did I remember right that was tweakers, or something else?

    I think “Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab” is for the celebs who CAN’T scrounge up the ten grand for bail. Some of the celebs on it seem so annoyed at the show — you know they’re only on it for the cash. Which is fine with me, don’t get me wrong — I think any reason a person gets even a brush with the idea of recovery is fine. Even if they’re on a “stupid” show or get paid to do it. I love the show. But I think the celebs on it are mostly tapped out money-wise. If Leif still has bail money, maybe he’s not a candidate … yet.

    How about George Michael for the second season of Celebrity Sex Rehab?

    Just saw him in “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” he had a small role as Natalie Wood’s son, he was about 6 yrs old at the time. He was cute. Too bad, although he never had much talent as a singer or actor.

    you all know if he was just a regular person like we all are it won’t matter on little bit…..but people like you who have no life amd nothing beeter to do then to wait everyday to see who is going to be the talk of the day.What’s relly funny is that half of you are sitting ther smoking ajoint or just did…but it’a ok because you are not a star of some kind and if you get picked up who is going to care NO ONE AT ALL
    so just pull up your big person pants and deal with it..no one is forcing you to read about him,that is YOUR own choice…..and by the way his talented have any of you listened to his new music.???? I feel sorry for people like you all who sit and judge people but not yourself…NO ONE IS PERFECT.
    even you..so get a life and if your mothers never told you I will …If you have nothing good to say then don’t say it…..

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
