Amy Winehouse goes to rehab… for a weekend?


Did you know that rehabilitation facilities offer weekend deals? As in, stay for a weekend and dry out, because we know you like your Jack Daniels first thing Monday morning. I knew that if you went into rehab willingly, you could check out anytime you want (much like the Hotel California), but unless you stay for a significant period of time and actually do the work of getting sober, staying in rehab for a weekend is like going to a spa where bringing your own liquor is “frowned upon.” If you couldn’t tell, Amy Winehouse pulled the old “I’m checking into rehab… for a weekend” deal. Apparently, Amy wanted to dry out “in an effort to keep her man”. Not Blake, mind you – her new man, the one with the girlfriend.

AMY WINEHOUSE has spent the weekend drying out – in an effort to keep her man.

The singer had a skinful last week and was admitted to her favourite hospital, The London Clinic, on Friday.

She spends more time there than anywhere else.

Her new fella, film producer REG TRAVISS, isn’t too happy about her boozing. A source said: “When she’s not on the bottle they get on brilliantly. But Reg has told her to quit the booze, otherwise he’ll be off, and she hit it hard last week.

“She wants to keep him so has decided to make a huge effort to stay sober.”

Yes, for Winehouse, a “huge effort” entails staying in rehab for a weekend. God knows how much she had to drink before she checked herself in – you could spend a full two days sleeping it off, you know? Still, it’s good to give the old liver a two day rest. That way when she started drinking again on Monday, she got drunk a lot faster. Saving time and money, our Winehouse.

    She might as well just have a section of her house designated as the “dry” wing, where she has a few people who usher her in, lock the doors and don’t let her drink for a couple of days and then let her back out again when she starts getting cranky.

    Remember when she was sort of pretty and could sing? Now she looks like she’s probably sticky like a bar bathroom floor and probably smells just as bad.

  2. SammyHammy says:

    Why are there even stories covering her antics anymore? She has a great talent that she just threw away. She’s a waste and doesn’t deserve attention from the media.

  3. Kitten says:

    I think those old-ass dirty ballet slippers need some serious rehab as well.

  4. Shay says:

    She is a lost case. End of story.

    @ snowball – LOL!

    And, my, doesn’t she look loverly. What a face!

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and quote Bill Hicks, “Did you know if you play new kids on the block backwards [substitute Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Hillary Duff etc), it actually sounds better. ‘Oh, but Bill, they are so wholesome and such a good image for the kids.’ F**k that, since when did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children to listen to musicians who…rocked. I don’t care if they died in puddles of their own vomit. I want someone who plays from her heart….” I agree.

    @kitten – I was thinking the same thing about those filthy pink ballet slippers. Someone needs to yank those things off her feet and throw them in the garbage. Gross!

    Oh, man. She is hard to look at.

    “much like the hotel california”

    @ SammyHamm: I was thinking the same exact thing.

    Why does she even warrant coverage anymore? She’s not doing anything except acting stupid and looking revolting.

    Wow in rehab for the whole weekend,well, she Must be cured then.

    Obviously those who are so disdainful towards Amy, bashing her for wasting her talent and saying she is not deserving of coverage do not understand how terrible her addiction is.

    She is one of the best singers to come along in the last decade, and it is a God damn shame that she’s throwing it all away in the bottle but when it gets to a certain point it’s not even something she can help so there’s no use and it’s even cruel to heap scorn upon her for it.

    I hope poor Amy can come around one of these days but she’s got a long road ahead of her when she finally decides it’s time to take that path. Think of it as a cautionary tale. I don’t have half the talent she does and I’m wasting my life the same way, so I have some sympathy.

    Nah, she’s just a mimic and her voice is now destroyed anyway from hard drinking.
