Tatum O’Neal was busted buying crack yesterday in Manhattan. She tried to get herself out of it with the typical “don’t you know who I am” and “I was doing this for a movie role” type crap you hear all the time, but she didn’t try it again in court today. The AP reports:
O’Neal, 44, looked tired and said nothing as she was arraigned Monday in Manhattan Criminal Court on a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance. The daughter of screen star Ryan O’Neal entered no plea and was released without bail until a July 28 court date. Prosecutors are recommending drug treatment for the actress, who detailed her dependency on heroin and cocaine in her best-selling memoir, “A Paper Life.” Her lawyer, Robert Marinelli, declined to comment Monday. Her manager and publicist did not immediately return telephone calls after her court appearance, while her agent’s office referred calls to her publicist.”
Crack is the stirrup pants and oversized sweatshirt of all drugs. This is Tatum telling the world she really doesn’t give a shit anymore. Well, scratch that, it could get worse. She could get really fat and cause the stirrups to snap, then she could add some slouch socks and white Keds with the laces removed to really bring the point home.
