Demi Moore went to the hospital with a seizure due to… whip-its?

Did you ever do whip-its, or cheap nitrous oxide, when you were young and stupid? I did, and it was just the one time so I don’t remember much about it but the high was pretty minor and short-lived from what I recall. Apparently whip-its can be extremely dangerous as they temporarily cut off oxygen to the brain. A quick search reveals that the potential side effects include blacking out, seizure and even death. (Just say no to huffing and tell your kids about it!) Well Demi Moore is said to have been doing whip-its right before she suffered a seizure and was rushed to the hospital. And here I was thinking that her issue was prescription drug abuse. Here’s TMZ’s report:

Demi Moore’s friend called paramedics Monday night after the actress inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide … TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ … one of Demi’s friends who was at her home told emergency workers Demi was doing whip-its. A whip-it is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant.

The friend said she became upset when Demi had a reaction to a whip-it and lapsed into semi-consciousness.

It appears Demi had symptoms of a seizure — after inhaling the nitrous.

A whip-it is not a common drug among people of Demi’s age and social status. It’s typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill.

[From TMZ]

I don’t know if I’m buying this explanation as it seems strange. I found at least one story where someone witnessed a co-worker have a seizure after inhaling whip-its, so it’s definitely possible, but cocaine use can also cause seizures. If it’s a made up excuse it’s a clever one as it makes it sound like Demi was just doing something stupid once and that she paid the price. She’s so tiny that any drug must have a big effect on her.

Yesterday we reported on a story in People that claimed that Demi was acting the fool on a night out with her daughter Rumer and Rumer’s buddies just prior to her hospitalization. Demi was said to have been grinding all over a 27 year-old actor, Ryan Rottman, who was last linked to 18 year-old Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice. (Really!) Not to be outdone, US Weekly has news of another wild night out for Demi at the same club, Beachers Madhouse, in which she was dancing on tables while guys watched her. That was on January 11. At an event with Rumer on January 15, Demi is said to have “ordered about a dozen Red Bulls that night.” So she’s drinking tons of Red Bull, hanging out with her 23 year-old daughter’s friends and doing whip-its. Demi definitely wants her youth back.

Meanwhile, you remember how I wrote yesterday that Ashton Kutcher would probably rush to Demi’s side after her hospitalization, if only because it was the right thing to do? Sadly, I was wrong. Ashton is still in Brazil partying with young chicks and he’s still totally ignoring this. He hasn’t even tweeted encouragement to Demi, which makes me sad for her. She’s crying out for help and some kind of acknowledgment.

The photos of Demi in the red dress are from 10-17-11. She’s gained a little much-needed weight in the most recent photos in the black dress, which are from the “Red Bull” night, 1-14-12

    Personally I don’t think it was made up. I think it’s MUCH more embarrassing for a 49 year old mother of 3 to be caught doing Whip-Its then cocaine or prescription drugs. It puts her in Olympia Dukakis territory.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I agree, and it fits with her grinding on the young dude, too. Hopefully the humiliation, even if it’s not true, will cause her to do some serious re-evaluation of her life and health.

    • That girl says:

      I agree. This is not only stupid and juvenile, it’s low budge & desperate. Pretty sad considering the image she portrays. Hopefully she gets it together and lives a life worthy of her girls admiration.

      • Capella says:

        A bit too late for her girls’ admiration. Her desperation is so clear, I think even her girls are telling her to grow-the-f up!

        And as for Asston, if it’s true that she was emotionally dependent on him and stifling him, then I’m sorry, but he IS doing the right thing! He is supposed to not answer to any of her emotional manipulations and cries for his attention. The best thing he can do for Demi, is to let her get over the end of their marriage. And for him to keep a low profile. No matter how douchey we think he is.

    • WillyNilly says:

      Who is this friend that gave her whip its? Definitely a drug for the young 20′s and teens…she is not reliving her youth correctly.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        ITA. Why cop to whip its unless it’s true. If they came out and said it was an eating disorder related seizure due to dehydration, everyone would buy it and she’d have our sympathy. But whip its? I think not.

      • Lantana says:

        This is really a reply to MorticiansDoItDeader but the replies won’t let me nest any more comments. Anyway, the first thing I thought of was eating disorder + Rx drugs + alcohol. Any 2 of the combination could possibly give one a seizure, but combine the 3 and it’s asking for disaster. I think she forgets that as we’re approaching 50, our bodies don’t react to things like they did when we were approaching 25. Sad, in a poignant way. Seems like she’s trying to capture that one really good buzz that used to be.

    • Lynnie says:

      Olympia Dukakis? Do you mean Kitty?

    • Shelly says:

      Thank you!!!!!! I agree!! I would rather be caught doing a line of coke than doing whip-its. Good God. Embarrassing.

    • Petunia says:

      Actually I might possibly have more sympathy if she was doing coke and got ill, if she had an addiction going. But to stupidly inhale a kid’s party drug? Man, that’s busted! And it totally ties in with her quest to stay young, along with her bumping and grinding a young guy right in front of her own daughter. I’m now inclined to agree with the folks saying that Ashton also put up with a lot in their marriage. I think that may be why he’s washed his hands so completely of her – he’s had enough. Plus she made him look like the complete baddie in their split when she’s got problems aplenty.

      I feel sorriest for her girls, especially poor Rumor. Who knows how long Rumor and the other girls have had to play Mommy to Demi?

      It’s funny cause I always thought that Demi had it all together but her life is in shambles. Looks like so much of her image was just manufactured.

      • sluggo says:

        ITA. Quite a few speculations nowadays that all was not what it seemed: that Ashton got out because of HER and not the other way around.

        Nitrous? Seriously? Why not just do cough syrup while she’s at it? This is so low-budget, I can’t even begin to understand.

        I have also come to truly wonder whether menopause has anything to do with all this. Honestly, it happens: menopause can quite often mess with your mind, making you think you’re old and over the hill. Some women (I include myself — went through it early) do pretty goofy things, trying to hang on to what’s left of youth, or recapture it. It’s rough. Especially if you’re still under 55. And REALLY especially if you’re in a business where youth and young beauty determine what roles and jobs you get. And REALLY REALLY especially when your SO is way younger than you.

        Can you imagine if that was the case? to hit the Big M and then divorce right on top of it? I’d go spare. Not saying this is what’s happening, I have no way of knowing (nor any right to know), it’s just speculation. But … I recognize that look and that behavior, BELIEVE ME.

  2. Bite me says:

    The last thing Demi need right now is contact with Ashton

    • Jag says:

      Agreed! It’s a good thing that he hasn’t contacted her. From what’s been written recently about her, I wouldn’t put it past her to do enough of whatever to cause a problem so that Asston would take notice. Now that he hasn’t, maybe she can get on with her life.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Um, whip-its? I just don’t believe this..definitely more likely to be cocaine. Whip-its is the lamest high ever.

    • DreamyK says:

      I’m with you. I think her PR team picked the most innocuous drug abuse they could think of..inhaling whip cream chemicals. Come on. First it was the “exhaustion”, now it’s whip cream gas. BS. She didn’t get that damn anorexic doing whip its.

      Demi is pathetic. She may look somewhat youthful on the outside, but her insides are still 50yrs old. She has kids, grow the F*** up already.

  4. jen says:

    Sounds about right to me, we already know she’s a fool.

  5. Mimi says:

    Talk about the proverbial rock bottom….I’m so embarrassed for her it’s almost cringe worthy.

  6. Zelda says:


    The fact that Demi Moore is a high school sophmore is blowing my mind.

    Whippets must age you.

  7. Cirque28 says:

    Yeah, I’m with mln76, this seems way more humiliating than cocaine. Demi does not want to be known as a huffer.

    May Ashton’s image never recover from this. Faithless coward.

  8. Madpoe says:

    …And so a little bit more of Demi’s children’s innocents dies along the way of this story….

    Let me find out my mama is dancing on tables, huffin’ and surrounded by 20-somethings I will personally tattoo “fool” on her forehead!

  9. TeamElton says:

    She needs to grow up and put her big girl panties on, stop screwing around with kids. Good lord the woman is almost 50. What an embarassment. Seriously did she think that marriage with that idiot savant was going to be a forever thing? If so, she was the only one who did. Grow up Demi and take care of your girls. What kind of example are you setting for them????

  10. Eleonor says:

    I’m not sure having Ashton at her side would be a good idea. It seems for him the marriage was over, going to Demi could create wrong expectations.

  11. Roma says:

    I have done a vast amount of social drugs but even I haven’t done whip-its. As a guy at a party who was once doing them once said “this isn’t really for girls like you.”

    This reminds me too much of the Miley bong incident – pick something that technically isn’t illegal. And for Demi it’s both not illegal & not addictive.

  12. LeeLoo says:

    I know there were those who mentioned it yesterday but I feel that part of the reason Ashton isn’t saying anything nor will he say anything is because he knows that is exactly what she wants. I can totally belive and see her emotionally blackmailing him with the whole “I’m going to fall apart if you leave.” I think Ashton has wanted out of this marriage for some time and I think he stayed out of concern for her well being. I can’t blame him if he feels she is played that card. That is just my speculative opinion. Even if I am wrong, what purpose would it serve for him to say anything about this? This is Demi’s responsibility, no one can put this incident on Ashton. It’s not his fault Demi has lost all sense of dignity. She could have handled her reaction to divorcing Ashton with a lot more class. But no, she is determined not to learn from her mistakes.

    As for doing whip-its, I will believe this story if she did whip-its with something else, like cocaine. I think she’s been on a bit of a bender for awhile and it is all catching up with her. I think whatever she did combined with being extremely underweight has made her extremely fragile and sensitive to whatever it is she has been doing.

    As far as a 48 y/o woman being caught doing whip-its it only proves even more that she is desperate to cling to her youth. Above all else she desperately needs psychological help to confront her fears about aging.

    • Haribo says:

      Exactly! It is not Ashton’s fault that she is acting this way. He probably kept her in line for a long time and was just plain sick of it. This type of behavior doesn’t happen just “out of nowhere”. I also think that she thinks that this is going to pull in some sympathy points for her side (“poor Demi, look what he has led her to”). She’s that full of herself.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Haribo, If he was “keeping her in line.” I’m thinking it was more along the lines of, they did crap like this together and he may have made sure she didn’t go overboard. Whip its are for highschool kids and those with the emotional maturity of highschool kids (like adult men who act like frat boys and videotape pulling “pranks” on their friends).

    • Petunia says:

      Prior to reading the whippet and bumping and grinding posts, I wouldn’t have agreed with you and would have still held Ashton responsible for the demi-se of their marriage. Now I’m seeing exactly what you’re indicating. I think on some level, this was done for emotional blackmail. I also think it shows what she’s like behind the scenes and what Ashton had to put up with. I mean, come on, these actions would be a bit more understandable in a girl in her early 20′s, not a mature woman of 50-something. Ashton isn’t a saint but if he had to prop her up while she did increasingly more histronic and self-destructive acts does give him a good motivation for wanting out of the marriage and to steer clear for now. And even if none of the above hold true, I do agree that seeing him now would only prolong false hope for her. He’s over her and moved on. I know that’s a painful aspect of love and life but it happens. All of the whippets, starvation diets and bumping and grinding in the world isn’t going to change that her marriage is over and she needs to prepare for life without Ashton now.

    • ol cranky says:

      I can’t imagine how many cannisters you’d have to go through (and how fast/continuous you’d have to do it) to desaturate and need to be taken away in an ambulance. I’d think you’d have to huff enough to cause a hypoxic brain injury and it’s pretty easy to avoid with nitrous so, I think she was doing more and huffing something much worse than nitrous and they’re trying to minimize the fall out by admitting to something normal people would be embarrassed by

  13. Kate says:

    You new it was something… Ashton bolted for a reason.. she was dropping weight and looks like dung for a reason.. but WHIPITS. Come on! Either horrible cover up or she is truly and idiot and Im sorry I spent my youth looking up to her. Guess we are all truly human. Hollywood or not.

  14. Sunshine says:

    Isn’t she from New Mexico originally? I think I read that huffing is a big thing out there so maybe she really did want to relive her youth, if she did that as a teen (I’m sure she did). I tried whippits once I think, it didn’t do much but I was coke and oxyed up at the time so who knows. Seems kinda lame but when you can’t get anything better it’s something to do. Demi can probably get ANYTHING, if I was her and had the connections she did I’d get some shrooms and some ayahuasca…always wanted to try that and I LOOOOOVE shrooms but can’t ever find them! Seems stupid, the only reason I can see to actually want to be famous is so you can get the good stuff that us peasants can’t, and this crazy isn’t even taking advantage! She also needs a sandwich.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      That’s what I’m saying-she has millions of dollars and she’s gonna do whip-its? Um, no, I don’t believe it. Seizures from whip-its are not common, seizures from cocaine however……
      BTW, I can get (supposedly) amazing ‘shrooms from my dealer but I have no desire to do them–I haven’t tripped since college. Not sure at 30 that I could handle trippng! :)

      • Zelda says:

        I’m the same age and recently, on a whim, did them with some friends. It was surreal. It felt EXACTLY the same as when I was 19. Exactly.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Doing whip its with an upper…like cocaine… is super dangerous. So sure I’ll buy her doing whip-its but I also believe she was doing whip its while high on cocaine.

      • Me says:

        When my ex husband was a teen he a nd his best friend did whip its in the kids garage and the friend dropped dead. So they are pretty dangerous. That being said though i think whipits are beneath her but it is a legal excuse for the hospital as oppose to the eightball got to her. Lol

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Zelda-See? That’s what scares me. So that means if I ate ‘shrooms now I would end up sitting along the Charles River, eating Star Bursts and staring at the Canada geese? Doesn’t sound half-bad actually..
        LeeLo-I could see her being really high and thinking Whip-Its could be fun/funny. If that is true though then she is a HUGE idiot.
        Me-that is a scary/terrible story. I had no idea they were that dangerous…

      • Petunia says:

        Normally I’d agree with you but Demi is having a major mid-life crisis/ meltdown here so yeah, I think she would resort to using a kid’s drug of her youth. Especially if all of the “other kids” at the party were doing it. She’d want to look cool in front of them, no? Refusing would put her into mommy territory. And don’t forget, she’s a cool hipster who parties with her own daughter and smooshes herself into a young guy’s butt. Young and hip Demi, right?

        And maybe she’s more prone to seizures due to her diminished physical state (eating disorder.) Or maybe she had some coke too.

  15. emb says:

    I don’t like Ashton Kutcher AT ALL, but she is a grown woman and this is all on her. She needs to get help and grow the hell up. She has three children and she needs to OWN up to her issues (and get the appropriate help).

    • Kara Ann says:

      I cannot stand Kutcher either but I absolutely agree with you. Ashton and Demi are divorcing so they are no longer each other’s problem. I can say Demi doing all of this stupid sh*t to get Ashton’s attention. That I could believe that of her shows just how low she has allowed herself to fall. I hope she gets the help that she needs. I could see myself admiring her if she would change/better herself. As for Kutcher, I wish he would go away!

  16. NO SH¡T says:

    SMFH this is sad…..someone needs to slap the hell outta Demi and tell her to snap out of it. She needs to learn to accept her age realize its nothing wrong with getting older the more she rejects it the more she makes a fool out of her self. In the end father time always wins.

  17. Lexi says:

    This is depressing to read… If this story is true then someone needs to have a sit down with Demi Moore and let her know that she’s not 18 years old anymore. Even if she’s just acting out from the divorce… Demi Moore is just being cray cray. She’s almost 50!

  18. SolitaryAngel says:

    I’m pretty sure Bruce will step in and handle this–he always seemed to have a good influence on her, and I’m hoping he can help her see sense. Demi badly needs a family intervention. IF she was doing this as a way to get Ashton running back to her, then it’s GOOD that he’s ignoring her. Demi, you dumbass, seizures cause BRAIN DAMAGE, and you need whatever few brain cells you’ve still got left to get a grip on yourself!!

  19. Dawn says:

    I believe it because she has been trying to turn back the clock for several years now. This woman has been trying to pass herself off as mature and secure in who she is for some time now. But the facts show otherwise. She is an aging actress who has not been in demand for years and years. She has used some sort of surgery to keep her face tight and more than likely seldom eats and when she does either pukes or uses some sort suppository. She married a kid who was in his 20′s when she was in her 40′s and yes at that time of life there is a huge difference in maturity level or there should be. She offered him an open marriage with conditions placed on it to try and keep him there and then acted surprised when it her marriage ended. It seems to me that it was headed that way the minute they said I do. And yeah I know men get to marry younger women all the time and yeah that doesn’t seem fair but it is simply the way it is and has been for centuries. Demi needs to embrace her age and then act her age. She still can have a ton of fun and be mature just ask everyone who is over 50 and doing well. This woman needs to mature or she will kill herself trying to stay young and immature.

    • Petunia says:

      That’s the thing. I do feel for Demi. Aging for a woman isn’t easy. Once you hit 50 or so, you start becoming invisible to men. And let’s admit it, who likes that idea? You’d have to be nuts to say, “oh yeah, I’m down with that.” It’s also a bummer for her that her career is in its twilight. I can totally get her depression over both issues.

      But there are ways to still stay youthful without being juvenile, ya know? You can have some younger friends to keep a fresh perspective but that doesn’t mean you do dumb things with them. She needs to find a balance.

      Hope Bruce helps her. I do think he will. He seems like a good guy.

      • B says:

        This is the most thoughtful statement I’d read yet.

        Despite all the attacks on Demi for her fear of aging and attempts to stave it off, this is an issue that affects all of us. I have sympathy, not ire, for Demi. And I certainly don’t believe that she deserved to be cheated on.

    • Rachel says:

      I do not judge DM because she married a man 15 years younger than her. Her ex married a woman 23 years younger than him and now has a new baby. No-one really cares about that. The stress of being a former beauty in a obviously hostile environment where she ruled has crushed her. She grew up beaten, abused with drug addicted parents in a trailer park. It no wonder nothing is holding her up. She’s probably been a mess for years.

  20. mia girl says:

    Wow, that Beachers Madhouse sounds like the entrance to rock bottom for girls named Demi. That’s the same placed where Demi Lovato was rumored to have been drinking and snorting up a storm before going to rehab this week.

    I cannot believe someone would make up a whip-it story. I agree with all who say it is much more embarrassing at Demi’s age (heck for anyone over 20) to be caught doing that crap. I also agree she was probably high on all kinds of other stuff while doing it.

    This is evidence of an emotionally stunted person. And I don’t think she began this behavior after her and Kutcher broke up. Wouldn’t it be ironic if even “king of the man-boys” Ashton Kutcher thought she was too immature? That really is rock bottom.

  21. Bubbling says:

    What is this whip-its? Is that like Popers or something? Her big ass fake teeth became even more prominent now she is 50 pounds

  22. juju says:

    She is so pathetic !!!! Eat a sandwich and stop acting like a dam fool !! Great example for your daughters !!

  23. Julie says:

    Whether she was doing this or not, I would believe an addiction to cocaine of script abuse based on how she has been looking. Scipt use looks like that princess person married to the bad prince (name?). Either way, I wish her the best in getting healthier.

  24. Tierra says:

    I didn’t even know people still did whip its. I haven’t heard that term since the 80′s.
    I hope she pulls it together. I actually couldn’t stand her when she was with AK but I’ve been developing a lot of sympathy for her lately. Im sure she’ll make a great come back in a year or so.

  25. Julie says:

    And I agree. Ashton should keep his distance. She needs to pull inside to fix this as painful as his absence may be.

  26. Cathy says:

    Whip it’s…haven’t thought of them in years. I didn’t even know they were still around. She doesn’t need to be doing those things. Whip its are for the young idiots, not older idiots like her. Grow up lady, eat some food and take life easy. You have the money enjoy yourself. Stop making a fool of yourself over that dingbat Ashton. Time to move on.

  27. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    When I was in highschool (graduated 1998), whip its were called “hippie crack,” because all the kids that listened to Phish (and the other hippie bands) used to huff it. The high lasts 5 seconds and they’d immediately go back for more (hence the crack part). After doing a few balloons in a row, they’d “Phish out” (pass out) and eat pavement and come to school the next day with road rash on their face. I’m guessing Demi had to be doing a sh!t load of “hippie crack” to have had a seizure. She probably passed out and seized. This may sound harsh, but I hope she hit her head on the way down and got some sense knocked into her because this behavior is nothing short of pathetic.

    • Esmom says:

      I went to a Grateful Dead show in the 80s and the Deadheads were doing the same thing. I think the Phish followers are the new generation of Deadheads. In any case, weird to imagine Demi jumping on that particular bandwagon, unless whip its are making a comeback in other circles.

      • Roma says:

        I also graduated in 1998 from HS and it was just all the stoner kids who were doing it. I just can’t believe it’s big in Hollywood right now when people have access to all kinds of drugs and my friends were doing whip-its just to save money so they could still afford a pizza pop for dinner.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Esmom, these very same people were also into The Greatful Dead and RatDog (bob weir’s band). Tailgating consisted of smoking weed, drinking, doing balloons or tripping.

        @Roma, same here. Anytime there was a house party they’d raid the fridge in search of whipped cream. I’m sure the parents were confused when they wanted some Redi-whip for their breyers and couldn’t get the can to work. If this ever happens when my sons are older i’ll know exactly what’s up!

  28. Jen34 says:

    I thought all along that she wanted to be 25 again, but I guess she’s really aiming for 14.

  29. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    When I read this was grinding on some guy when out at a club with her daughter I was cringing, but huffing? That’s the icing on the cake of pathetic.

    Yeah, I get that she might be upset over the divorce and all, but with all her money there’s better ways to feel better. Go on some fabulous vacation with your daughters. Somewhere that is absolute luxury and unbelieveable views and lots of peace and quiet to think (there’s some amazing hotels in Antigua for instance), that’s what I’d do. Find some perspective on your life and what is important. Find some self-respect.

    I don’t know why these older celebrities who go through a divorce suddenly have to find themselves some boytoy or act like they’re 21 years old, out partying and being overly-sexual…do they really think that makes everyone go: oh yeah, she’s still sexy, she’s still got it! Hello? What it makes you look is pathetic and desperate.

    Sexy is confidence. At almost 50 you don’t need to be dancing on tables and grinding on some boytoy to look sexy…cuz it doesn’t. I’m not saying older women can’t go out and have fun, but c’mon.

    The really stupid thing is a lot of these women are beautiful and have great figures, but their lack of confidence and self-respect and desperation to be still seen as that sexy yooung thing ruins it.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree about her lacking self-respect, Suzy. Maybe she’s one of those people whose whole life revolves around their significant other. It’s sad – she’s a grown woman who’s had a very successful, lucrative career, and she has three daughters to think about too.

  30. Justaposter says:

    Okay don’t throw things at me but…

    Maybe just maybe she was on a downward spiral and Ashton finally had enough?

    Yes I know he cheated and there is never ever a good excuse for cheating!!

    He has been awfuly quiet lately, just doing his own thing.

    And her doing Whip its? Really? Nobody came up with the ‘lets say she was doing X or something” excuse?

    Hopefully Demi can finally get the help she needs now.

    • Petunia says:

      I think you are not alone in coming to this conclusion. And let’s not forget that if Ashton cheated, Hollywood people are saying that she did too. So that puts them both squarely in the wrong on that count. But if she put Ashton through stuff like this, then it’s no surprise that he split.

      Hard as it may seem to believe, Ashton may well be the more mature of the two of them. Maybe she didn’t just go with him for his youth. Maybe she’s so immature emotionally that she only relates to young people. Younger than him.

  31. mel says:

    I feel sorry for her only because she is having a hard time accepting her age. I don’t feel sorry for her in many other aspects because she is a wealthy – self absorbed brat who instead of acting with any sense of dignity is indulging ridiculous behavior…embarrassing her daughters because it has to always be all about her. She is incredibly self-absorbed…she should be putting her kids first.

  32. sue says:

    I’ve met women like this who want to be their daughter’s best friends so they try to fit in by texting all the time and acting stupid. It’s embarrassing and the mother’s need to grow the fuck up. Demi is a lame ass.

  33. Pauline Bernoski says:

    She is disgusting!!

  34. renata says:

    This all sounds like some nonsensical disinformation campaign thought up by a publicist. If you have a single version floating around of what went on here, people generally believe they can rely upon that version of events. If you have ten different versions of what went on, people walk away saying ‘who knows?’

    Under these circumstances, I would look towards the very earliest stories of what happened to sort out the most likely version of the truth. The rest that’s going on now seems like publicist spin trying to hold on to a career.

    Alcohol withdrawal-cold turkey-can cause life threatening seizures. Also cocaine. Also cold turkey withdrawal from long term benzodiazepine use (Valium, Xanax, Klonapain, etc)
    Then there’s kind of electrolyte imbalance associated with severe anorexia, although that’s usually potassium and serious heart issues.
    Renata is right-who knows?
    Demi should go back to Idaho, eat some decent food, rest, and when she feels better, play in the snow. She needs to get out of LA and away from the paps.
    Ashton=double douchebag.

  36. katie says:

    i had to kick out a roommate once bc she was so rock bottom addicted to drugs she did whippets with all the whipped cream i had gotten for a special party. she could have done it bc she wanted a high and was desperate? depressed and not thinking? i have no idea, but i think this is a sign of other major drug use.

  37. Linda says:

    oh, this is really disgusting!

  38. Maria says:

    Last year I remember how some guy broke my heart and I tried to get his attention by getting so drunk. I passed out and almost swallowed my own vomit and he didn’t care. I wish I could blame him but I’m a big girl and I should not have been so stupid. Only good part is that night I met a wonderful guy.

    You know what makes an ex suffer? Be amazing and fabulous and non attention seeking. But acting crazy and like you’re still 20yrs old only makes them happy they got rid of you. I’m 23yrs old and heck I would DIE of embarrassment if my mom pulled that crap.

  39. gg says:

    I can say I hope she doesn’t read comments about herself on the internet because it might send her off the deep end and I truly don’t want that to happen.

  40. fabgrrl says:

    Is it sad that I would have more respect for her overdosing on elegant, grown-up drugs instead of this? Whispering, “Codeine… bourbon.” ala Tallulah Bankhead?

  41. Nan209 says:

    Poor thing. No matter which way you look at her its sad.

  42. chloe says:

    I have a friend who’s a photographer for a paper, he was at a Super Bowl a couple years ago that Demi an Ashton were at, he said she was completely out of it and just standing around getting her picture taken and Ashton was telling people to leave her alone. I think that Ashton has been taking care of her for years, it doesn’t make it right to cheat on her, but I’m sure that can wear on you after awhile.

    • malia says:

      I saw her at a Toys R Us of all places in Thousand Oaks, Ca years ago pre-ashton and her kids were still young and hadn’t made a movie in awhile. She was doing everything in her power to be recognized in front of us. To the point that my husband rolled his eyes and was calling her desperate. Everyone ignored her too, it was really weird and kind sad.

  43. Shelly says:

    It’s really hard for me to picture her doing whip-its. I mean, seriously, WTF?! If this is true, then it is weird. And pathetic and sad. I would believe cocaine and Rx drugs. Whip-its is just sort of embarrassing. Even more embarrassing than admitting to coke or other things. At least grown ups actually DO cocaine and Rx drugs. Not whip-its! And really, what is Ashton supposed to say about this publicly? Some people say this is all his fault and some are saying this is one of the reasons he cheated and left her. He can’t win either way if he says anything.

  44. Maya says:

    So that’s how these Hollywood ladies remain thin?
    They don’t eat the cream but snort the gas….
    Seriously though, I had no idea what Whip Its were until this Demi incident.

  45. Cirque28 says:

    Do we have to be so hard on her? Drug addiction is a disease. Anorexia is a disease. Her current situation is extremely messy and ungraceful, but she IS attempting to get well now.

    • Petunia says:

      I get what you’re saying. But Demi has received a lot of sympathy from the media and regular people over the loss of her marriage. I think that most of us know how devastating it is and feel badly for her on that count.

      But you know what? Someone has to call her on the carpet for her less sympathetic behavior. Even if it’s addiction related. She needs to see how it degrades her. I honestly think she’ll do a lot better if she can get this through her head. Real life doesn’t stop for addicts, and hiding the truth from them doesn’t help them get better.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I co-sign and agree with a firey passion!! Well said!!

      • Cirque28 says:

        She’s def degrading herself. And no, no, I don’t think we should hide the truth from addicts either.

        Her acting has always sucked IMO, so I’m not a fan. Just… a few of the comments here are disturbingly gleeful. Someone farther up posted that this is hilarious. OK, if seizures are hilarious, death must be a real scream.

        Also, there’s this attitude drifting around about Ashton’s cheating, like, What did she expect considering the age difference? It sounds like Demi’s being blamed for his mistakes and shamed for aging. People start off taking the position that she’d probably be happier with a mature man (agreed!) but then it seems to morph into Of course he strayed. Know your place, Grandma.

        Hogwash. She took a chance on love and it didn’t work out. At least she took a chance. And, yep, breakdowns are embarrassing and lame. At least she’s getting help.

      • eileen says:

        I don’t get how there’s a strange justification and blame laid on the spouse of cheaters. Like-well they obviously weren’t satisfying their man….Its ridic! I don’t care how unsatisfied you are, honor your vows and get out before taking your pants off. As superficial and insecure Demi is, I can imagine it REALLY hit her hard that her husband cheated. I ‘m not a fan of her either and I agree-no one should celebrate this and she should be called to the table about her behavior…but not blamed for his affairs.

    • Ida says:

      Eh. Not every fool who ODs or has a seizure or passes out is an addict. Neither is everyone who looses a lot of weight during a very stressful period in their lives anorexic. My intuition is that Demi is neither. What she quite obvioisly is is pretty damn depressed. That can be equally dangerous.

    • cr says:

      What do you mean by ‘hard’. I think most of here do have sympathy for her. But at some point you have to stop enabling the person by giving them excuses all the time-Ashton was a cheater, she’s having trouble dealing with her age, etc.
      At some point she has to take responsibility for her own life.

  46. says:

    I think Ashton is an idiot, but Demi is a bigger idiot.

    Unlike Ashton, she’s got 3 daughters who need to be able to look at her as a role model. She needs to stop giving these girls more reasons to need intensive and extended therapy.

  47. Sara says:

    That much RedBull is extremely dangerous. After just one RedBull your blood becomes more sticky and increases your risk for stroke. Stay away from them. The whip-it story is beyond ridiculous. Totally for young kids

  48. malia says:

    I saw a video of Rumer and her mom out recently, and damn, that poor girl acts more mature and motherly than Demi. I feel sorry for her eating and substance abuse issues, but I feel more sorry that her daughters are bearing the brunt of their mother’s troubles. That’s a hell of a lot to throw on their laps.

  49. Daniel says:

    If I was Ashton I’d be calling her and the kids to make sure everything is alright, but wouldn’t do much after that.
    ALSO: Did Bruce Willis call her? Did any of her other lvoers call her? Why pin this crap on Ashton, they’re no longer married. Why should he care, they don[‘t even have kids together?

  50. original kate says:

    she needs to stop huffing and start eating. damn!

  51. MissyA says:

    Whipits are stupid as hell. You can kill millions of braincells with just one huff. It’s a stupid way to get high – especially because the high literally lasts seconds.

    I quit my *coveted* position at a head shop in college after we started carrying “Whip Cream Chargers” – canisters of nitrous oxide. We’d have to make the customer sign a waiver saying the store wasn’t liable if they died or got brain damage. It was. . . upsetting.

    Even though the smart guess would be on cocaine, I can see Demi doing something this stupid. Especially given her religion’s stance on drug use – I imagine nitrous and red bull would be considered a loop hole of sorts. . .

  52. Tazina says:

    Demi Moore is without a man – she falls apart. Her whole identify was wrapped up in Ashton Kucher. She needs to develop one of her own, a strong, independent one that actually has a thinking self-assured brain.

    • ccoop says:

      Yes, Mrs. Kutcher is desperately searching for a new identity. However, “14-year-old stoner” is not her best choice.

    • Jin says:

      No her whole identity is wrapped in people seeing her as this ageless hot woman. That’s what it was all about. She came out of her quiet life in Idaho because she missed the spotlight being on her and she got lots of plastic surgery to look good and got a young man and enjoyed the attention that brought her. Losing Ashtin in this public way was just a blow to her massive ego. Some women in hollywood just can’t let it go when it comes to aging and losing their looks. That’s why Heather Lockear went crazy. Gloria Swanson syndrome.

  53. Euphorima says:

    Remind me never to get involved with any man that is waaaaayyyyy younger than me!!! I feel really bad for her but she needs to snap out of it and get on with her life!!!

    Seems as if Ashton is only tooo happy to be out of the relationahip with her.

  54. anne_000 says:

    I don’t think it would be a good idea for Ashton to speak directly with her or see her in person at this point in time. I think that if he did that, all he’d get out of Demi is an hour’s worth of emotional blackmail for him to come back. And I don’t think that’s healthy for either one of them at this point.

    Demi needs to stop being so needy & weak. And Ashton shouldn’t feel obliged to be stuck in what now seems to be an unhealthy relationship with someone this obsessive and mentally ill.

    And yes, I think Demi is mentally ill. And I don’t think it’s just due to the breakup. I think there are a lot of other factors involved. And having Ashton communicating with her will probably enable whatever delusions and insecurities she has.

    At this point, I think it would be better if she sequestered herself into some kind of medical facility until she is feeling stable & balanced again.

    Bringing Ashton back into the mix now, even if it’s just a phone call or worse yet, if he flies back from Brazil to meet with her in person, is not a good idea, imo.

  55. skuddles says:

    I suspect if Ashton isn’t rushing back to be by her side it’s because this isn’t new behavior on Demi’s part. Perhaps addiction issues are at the root of the failed marriage? Well that, and a wandering dong…

  56. ShanKat says:

    That magic red string bracelet has reallly been letting her down this year.

  57. CatJ says:

    Actually, Olympia Dukakis did have some issues with drugs and a suicide attempt, so not too wrong.

  58. Nilber says:

    I had a friend die from whip-its in junior high. It was a horrible thing. It makes me sad that she is trying to do whatever she can to either forget her problems, is trying to turn back time or she is just delusional. Hopefully this may be a wake up call for her.

  59. Kate says:

    still have no sympathy – get your shit together for gods sake you have all the money in the world & 3 daughters!! dumb stupid bitch

  60. Paloma says:

    Radar is now saying she was taking Adderall in combination with Red Bull and purposely not eating (as opposed to not eating because of stress).

    • Julie says:

      And it’s being reported she’s been dealing with these specific problems for a year. Hard to tell what the egg and the chix. My daughter became highly addicted to adderall in college where she would stay up for days. She didn’t eat much at all and was very very skinny. I don’t think her not eating was an eating issue but a result of her addiction to adderall. Who knows. Demi has said she’s always struggled with body issues.

      • Esmom says:

        Adderall diminishes your appetite a lot. A friend of mine went on it and while her ADHD is under control she has no appetite and can’t stop losing weight. She says she wants to eat but never has any appetite.

        Of course other friends want to know her secret and are hoping they can get an Rx too. Appalling.

        BTW, I also heard that it can cause psychosis. Definitely not a drug to mix with Red Bull and/or Whipits. I don’t know how Demi hasn’t crashed sooner. This could seriously be life threatening.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I have ADHD and I have taken Adderall. I was fine when I was on it but when the medicine began wearing off, I was a WRECK. I would start crying and yelling at my boyfriend for no reason. It was awful and I did not respond well to it. It also caused insomnia which may also weaken a person’s system if combined with weight loss I had to go off of it. Now I just drink some strong shade grown coffee which is actually considered a natural supplement for treating ADHD.

        Stimulant medication needs to be used with care for treating ADHD. I would certainly not recommend it for children. In Demi’s case though, I highly doubt she was using it for ADHD.

  61. sluggo says:

    Has anybody else noticed that the targeted advertising at the top of the page is for whipped cream and nitrous oxide chargers, with a “Going Cold Turkey?”/rehab advert sandwiched in between them? I did a double-take when I saw it …

  62. Rio says:

    Wow, add me to the “really? All that money and you’re doing whipits?” camp. Now, I’ll fully admit taking a hit off the ol’ empty Reddi-Whip can before pitching it in the trash, but whipits always seemed like way too much effort for too little return.
    And yes, it’s a high for 14-year-olds who haven’t yet found a friend with the “cool” older brother. Why would you even WANT to relive those frustrating times?

  63. heidiho says:

    eww she’s so skinny and looks like skeletor….totally looks like a ritalin junkie…poor thang.

  64. Jin says:

    Demi Moore. You are not young. Accept it. An aging celebrity who doesn’t want to let her youth go. Beauty fades and we all get old. She’s always been so vain, obsessed with her looks and obsessed with everyone seeing her as this hot woman. She’d leak stories to the press about young men being all over her. I think she’s pathetic and has Gloria Swanson syndrome.

  65. Holly Hobby says:

    Demi for pete’s sake, grow up! The same can be said for Heather Locklear. Aging is a bitch but everyone goes through with it. The issue is do you want to go through it with dignity or doing what you are doing now and embarrassing your kids?

  66. anne says:

    OMG She is certainly not the only woman in the world to have lost her man. And some have lost them for worse reasons than age difference. Did she honestly think it would last forever?? I’m sorry this just wreaks of immaturity. She has so much to value in her life – have a good cry and jump back in the game girl!

  67. SamiHami says:

    Absolutely ridiculous. She’s not the first woman in the world to face aging, I’m only a year or two younger than her and I can tell you truthfully that I have NO desire to be 25 again. She should own who she is and quit trying to convince herself that she is something that she’s not.

    I used to have a little bit of respect for her as an actress (not a lot, but she was decent at one point in her career). Now there is just no respect at all. Her daughters must be so embarrassed by her.

  68. HA! says:

    Demi: you mother trucker! didn’t ypu have enough with Ashton Whip-it? Wasn’t he your cheap thrill of choice? lol…get over it , mama…the world is full of mean dying to be your next whip-it!

  69. HA! says:

    If you snort a whip it a social gathering in your kids presence, YOU ARE A REDNECK!
    Why not jist bonging, dude? Stoogy Cyrus does salvia…come on! you wanna look young dude, right? everyone’s bonging it! No peer pressure…

  70. Shy says:

    She is actually pathetic. I can’t feel sorry for this rich celebrity that lives in her rich house and feels sorry for herself. And I begin to believe that things LaineyGossip (or was is here at Celebitchy?)said that it looks like Ashton wanted to be caught in his infidelity so that she would have no other way then let him go.

    Because the way she is behaving… You know like some 17 years girl who threatens to commit suicide when her boyfriend dumps her. It looks like Demi and Ashron were in love. For years. And as it always happens – loved ended one day. For Ashton. But Demi still loved him and didn’t want to let go. And that’s pathetic. He doesn’t love you anymore. Ne want’s out.

    And I do suspect that he wanted divorce. Who knows maybe he asked her but she didn’t let him go. And he cheated and wanted to be caught so that there would be no other way for her. And remember how long she ignored those cheating things? STILL after he publicly humiliated her she didn’t want to let him go. And when she had to she stopped eating and this is where it ended. In hospital.

    She is adult grown up woman. And she behaves like some stupid 16-18 years old teenager. And I have the feeling that she was hoping that when Aston will hear about this then he would fly to her bed and ask for forgiveness and ask to take him back…. But it’s all over for Aston. He showed it in Brazil. This men doesn’t love her anymore and wants free life. Demi is just pathetic.

  71. Heather M (Heather) says:

    Radar Online is saying she is addicted to Adderall. I called it! That can cause seizures and, actually, my friend abused it so badly she was (literally) psychotic. Great stuff if used wisely, but it appears Demi was using it to control her weight, likely b/c she was losing control of Ashton. Sad.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I think you mean “great stuff if used as prescribed for a diagnosed medical condition” but I could just be being picky.

      I don’t think so though, as you sound like you know what you’re talking about.

      Adderall should ONLY. EVER. be prescribed to and used by those with an actual medical need to use it.

      • Heather M (Heather) says:

        Wisely= for ADD or ADHD, as prescribed. My friend was diagnosed w/adult ADD & it worked wonders for her ADD for years & years (BA Magna Cum Laude & a Masters), but then she got pregnant & “forgot” to tell her shrink & stockpiled it until she gave birth, using the loads she hoarded to “help lose weight” after she gave birth. The result was an almost anorexic weight loss & a paranoid & delusional person…to the point that I found myself emailing her shrink details of our insane conversations (me sobbing). It was awful & reminds me of this sort of break down…obviously I haven’t seen Demi act psychotic, but her weight loss pretty much looks like the psychotic Adderall abuser & I can only imagine what she was doing behind the scenes. I know she can get through this & just wish (like I wished for my friend) she could see her potential & persevere….

  72. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    ET has just reported that Ashton IS on his way back from Brazil.

    Forgive me for sounding like a douche, but Demi has been midlife crisis-sing it since she started dating Ash. It’s like as soon as she turned 40, she dropped out of sight then reappeared in Charlie’s Angels with a tweaked body, then finally Ashton.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure Ashton was douching it up and cheating on her, but with the new details come to light about her partying ways now and how nasty skinny she’s been looking for a year (before the cheating scandal even came out) one wonders how much of his cheating (still wrong) was his way of disconnecting from her antics. Was he trying to get her help and then got sick of it? I have a few addicts in my family and as much as you love them, you do get sick of trying to help people who won’t help themselves.

    All of this has me questioning how much of a douche Ashton really is? Was he willing to take the brunt of the bad press to cover up her issues for the sake of her children and because he really loved her? If so, I see him in a whole new light now.

    Finally, whatever the case may be, just because you divorce someone doesn’t mean you stop caring for her. I’m sure Ashton cares. But if Demi is truly manipulative, she could be seeking attention from him and using this as a tactic. In that case, he might make the situation worse by giving in to her demands. If this isn’t the case, while it’s nice for him to show up, he is not obligated to do so. She is a grown woman with three children and she is responsible for how she handles her heartbreak.

  73. the original bellaluna says:

    Outside of a Devo song, I had no idea what a “whip-it” was. (But thank GOD it’s not related to “Whip Your Hair.”) *hangs head in shame that I know that title, but proud to never have heard said song*

    That being said, I think Demi needs some treatment for her “exhaustion” (as well as all her other issues) and hope she gets well.

    Honey, he’s a ginormic douche-knocker. Totally not worth it.

    And your daughters need a graceful example to follow, not an example in how to freak out ungracefully.

  74. aprayerforthewildatheart says:

    All I hear is DEVO!!

  75. jilly says:

    I know someone who died from huffing last year. He was old enuf to know better. He did it bec it did not stay in his system long enuf to be picked up by the drug tests that his job required. He did too many cans in one evening and seizured to death. Demi is lucky to be alive. I hope she realizes this and develops the courage to allow herself to age with some dignity.

    • Heather M (Heather) says:

      I was with you until the “age with dignity” comment. Really? She is still YOUNG. Get over the whole “age with dignity” BS because she has a lot of time LEFT for LIFE (not “aging”), so let’s applaud the rest of her life versus her “aging” okay?

      Fuc* people. How old are you, Jilly?

  76. Susan says:

    WOW the hate here is really sad. Demi just went thorough a very hard time. Her husband fooled around on her in an open and degrading way. This affected her and she is struggling with it. Give her some time and room.

  77. dj says:

    If I remember correctly, back in the 80′s, she was recovering & did not drink? Anyone else remember something like that?

  78. squaw says:

    Wow, I hope she really GETS THE HELP she needs!

  79. sapphires says:

    Demi has had problems with substance abuse since she was a teenager. Inappropriate behavior, attentionseeking, massive amounts of plastic surgery yadda, yadda. All this happened before her divorce from Willis. Anyone remember the numerous nude photoshoots,the clunker “The Scarlet Letter” or “Striptease”? This desperation and need for attention is part of her personality.

  80. Kosmos says:

    She may be forever lost in a superficial world she creates for herself. She needs to do a little soul searching here. If you don’t know that you’re slipping and on the wrong track, then take a good look at all your dependencies. Running from yourself is not going to change things.

  81. TheTileNinja says:

    Demi, lay off the raver crack. Unless you’re trying to prolong your roll, in which case there’s a finite number of balloons when the guy with the nitrous tank shows up at the party. Just give it a rest.
