katecutowen_hudson.jpgOwen Wilson is probably thrilled that the press has decided that he attempted suicide because of his bustup with Kate Hudson. It’s a very logical explanation for his highly unexpected behavior. Looks good on paper. Plus it sounds touching and romantic – but it couldn’t be FARTHER from the truth. Owen is the one who broke off their relationship. Right now he’s in the psycho ward at Cedars and needs a plausible explanation for his actions because he doesn’t want the truth to come out. Hollywood insiders are buzzing that Owen’s problem is drugs, not women. They speculate that the drugs he’d been using made him depressed and drove him to attempt suicide. Why else would he have a high-powered lawyer at his bedside?

    I don’t know what to believe about this story. I have heard he tried to off himself because Kate is seeing Dax, because he is a heroin junkie, because he has depression. So what is it? A combo of all three?
    Who in Hollywood knows the truth outside of what Janet is telling us?

    Let’s just leave this story alone and let him work it out, eh? There are plenty of other stupid celebrity antics to chat about.

    owen wilson is a human being with every day problems just like every day people. you can’t equate success in your field, money and a good front to happiness. i hope he finds his center.

    Whatever the reason he should have never broken up Kate’s marriage, especially when there was a child involved. It was all for nothing he didn’t even stay with her, he was just playing his game. I don’t feel sorry for him.

    I wonder what will happen to his career? He’s cultivated a funny, happy-go-lucky persona. Suicide isn’t all that funny…going to be hard separating from this one.

    Owen wasn’t the only one to break up Kate’s marriage. She made a choice too. As a wife and mother, the ball was in her court more so than his. JMO.

    He should be slamming Sara Foster, his co-star in the Big Bounce anyway. She has all that he needs to take his blues away.

    “Right now he’s in the psycho ward”
    All he needs is a visit from Tom Cruise and his vitamins.

    Slamming Sara FOster? How crass can you get. Try: maybe he should be letting Sara Foster ‘envelope’ him. There. How do you like it when it’s the woman doing something to the man, you sexist prat

    Janet, you need to confirm for your readers that Owen was the subject of your blind item about the “Hollywood brother” who tends to play the “boyfriend type” and who has family members “worried to death” about his once-recreational, now hard-core heroin use–I believe you first posted that in the early days of this webiste. Come clean and confirm!

    the “psycho ward”???
    Janet: I am appalled. I thought you were a decent human being, but obviously I was very wrong.
    Mental health is a serious issue affecting millions of people daily, yet due to attitudes like yours, there continues to be so many still hiding away with their pain in shame.
    It doesn’t need to be this way. It shouldn’t be this way.
    For your own education, it’s the Psych Ward, not the Psycho Ward.
    For the good of this site & your readership figures, a public apology would serve you a treat.
    Too late for me though; you’ve pushed away a reader here.

    Normally ragging the celebs is fair game. In this instance I choose to allow Owen to try and deal with his problem(s) in private. What goes around comes around. Best wishes & good health to him.

    When I heard this news I also flashed back to your blind item, Janet. Could you run it again? Funny, it never occured to me that it was Owen. I thought for sure it was Luke! Get well, Owen. A day at a time.

    Wow Janet I never thought your “Who Dunit?” stuff were real ntil now!! You were talking about Owen Wilson on this one..”This good looking leading man from an acting family – who often plays ‘”the boyfriend” in movies – has a secret drug problem. He’s always seemed clean cut and the last one you’d suspect. Around six months ago he tried heroin and he LOVED it. Now he’s a slave to the substance and his family is worried sick. This actor used to be very visible and social – dating some of Hollywood’s prettiest women. Now all he cares about is getting high. His brother is terrified and the family is scheming to get him into rehab before it’s too late.”
    I thought it was his brother Luke Wilson!!!

    Your Own Backyard
    I’ve been sitting here thinking
    When i started out drinking
    I went on to the dope surely just to change my life
    I cried a tear and a beer for me
    I lost everything near and dear to me
    Namely my children and my wife
    I’ve an idea of having a good time
    Was sitting up there with my head between my knees
    Well i knew everything there was to know
    Everything except which way to go
    I cried oh god please take me will you take me please
    (yeah) many a time (well i) swore up and down
    I don’t need none of this junk that’s a floating round
    I could quit – let me finish what i’ve got
    After all this stuff sure costs a lot
    Then i get my feet back on the ground
    Now i can’t tell nobody how to live their life
    Even though inside we’re all the same
    All these things are toys i was playing with
    You know, you know we’re all losers in the end
    (well now) since i’ve been straight
    I haven’t been in my cups
    I ain’t shooting downs i ain’t using ups
    You know i’m still as crazy as a loon
    Even though i don’t run out and cop a spoon
    Thank the good lord god well i’ve had enough
    I’ve got a friend and his name is robertson
    He told me “don’t need to be stoned to know a friend
    Believe me you’re all beautiful people just the way you are
    Tell me, what has that stuff done for you so far?”
    I’ve been sitting here thinking i’ve been winking i’ve been blinking
    Well i don’t have to sit around no more on the nod
    With my head in the air (you know)
    I can do anything I want to do, and i can do it straight i can do it so much better now
    Its gotta start
    Right here in your own back yard
    Yes it’s gotta start back your own back yard
    Everybody has their own beautiful back yard
    You might find oil wells in your own back yard
    You might find anything in your own back yard
    You might even find my shadow in your own back yard
    (who knows what you might dig up)
    For Owen.

    Owen found the addicts demon OXYCONDIN and went to church to ask for help and God blessed and saw to it HE could and would survive in a very expose-humbling way that would get him help to QUIT!

    it’s complicated.
    depressed people self medicate with drugs and alcohol and the drug and alcohol abuse in turn causes further depression and guilt.
    abusing drugs and alcohol is a way to kill yourself w/out going all the way.
    if you never have an issue with drug and alchol abuse or mental illness, you are very fortunate, many “normal” people have these issues and go untreated.
    mental illness, emotional disturbances and substance abuse is the cause for a lot of disruption in our lives

    As stated i for some reason don’t find this to be a situation that i want to snark about. To me this man whom has been easily forgettable in the movies i’ve seen has problems just like the rest of us. I feel his pain as he did attempt to keep his problems quiet. I feel bad that he has to live out his recovery before the masses now. All i can say is this should be humbling to all and i wish him the best in his quest for sobriety and happiness

    Maybe if he would do some philanthropic work and donate some of the money he spends on drugs to helping others, he might feel better about himself. After a while, there’s a price to pay for being so self-indulgent.

    I agree with the poster who said the following: “Maybe if he would do some philanthropic work and donate some of the money he spends on drugs to helping others, he might feel better about himself. After a while, there’s a price to pay for being so self-indulgent.” I couldn’t have said it better myself!!

    Oh for god’s sake! I’ve been in the psycho ward myself, and have a number of friends who have. That’s all long over now thank god but I still have my sense of humour as do my friends and can still call it the “psycho ward” and make all manner of jokes about it without getting in a prissy touchy feely politically correct snit about inappropriate language!

    Janet I think you are a sick F%$& who is enjoying this a little too much. Doing your job is one thing, the obvious relish with which you are enjoying his near death and subsequent struggle to recover is sick.

    no sympathy from me for this spoiled jerk. the way he treated carolina was pathetic. he should have married her when he had the chance.

    He is a clinical depressive and a recovering alcoholic/drug addict who had a severe depressive episode and a serious fall off the wagon. Owen’s fortunate that he didn’t die. Hollywood is trying to convince everyone that he’s “just fine” now, but I’m doubtful. Clinical depression and addiction are not problems that just “go away” and he will have to continue to be closely monitored. Wishing him and his family all the best …

  • 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?
