Tatum O’Neal Blames Her Dead Dog



As Tatum O’Neal was being arrested for buying crack and cocaine in New York City on Sunday night, she told police officers that she was preparing for a role. I know this might be hard to believe, but she was lying. I know, right?! US Magazine reports:

Former child star (and recovering addict) Tatum O’Neal says the death of her 16-year-old Scottish terrier almost caused her to relapse. “There’s no excuse for what I did,” the 44-year-old actress – who was arrested after allegedly buying crack and cocaine Sunday in NYC – told the New York Post on Monday, the day of her arraignment. Three weeks ago, O’Neal said, “I lost my Scottish terrier, Lena. That seemed to set me off. “She got old. She got cancer. She was the fabric of our family. We had to let her go to heaven. My daughter and I had to put her down. It was too horrible for words. “I couldn’t get out of it,” O’Neal said. “I was going to my psychiatrist. I was doing everything I could do. I have the disease of alcoholism. It’s lifelong. I treat it every day by going to my 12-step program.” The dog’s death, she said, “triggered that my mother passed away [from addiction] in ’98. My father [actor Ryan O’Neal] and I are estranged.”

Wow, somebody needs to go back to how to tell a lie school, because Tatum O’Neal is pretty much 0-2. My dog died, and when it did, my first instinct wasn’t to smoke crack to kill the pain. In fact, I can safely say that if I had a magical unicorn that granted wishes and it died, chances are good that I still wouldn’t attempt to buy drugs in plain view of New York City police. I don’t know why I wouldn’t, but I think it has something to do with the fact that I don’t really love crack.

Tatum O’Neal is a Crackhead



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.
