Demi Moore’s two youngest daughters “want nothing to do with her”

This week’s In Touch cover story is all about Demi Moore’s OD and downfall, with details we’ve heard before. They do add the claim that Demi has been doing cocaine, which I sort-of buy but I also think it’s possible that she’s only hyped up on “legal” drugs like Adderall, Red Bull, “K2 Spice,” and whip-its. The thing that struck me about this story was the fact that they focus on Demi’s relationship with her two younger daughters, Tallulah, 18, and Scout, 20. Demi seems to have a friendly relationship with her oldest daughter Rumer, 23, as she was partying with Rumer in the days leading up to her hospitalization. Tallulah has been living with her dad, Bruce Willis, for some time, and Scout is off at college. According to In Touch neither daughter has wanted anything to do with their super-embarrassing mom for some time prior to her breakdown. They’re probably worried that she’s going to hit on their male friends, and for good reason. Here’s part of In Touch’s report:

Rumer may be close to her mom, but Demi’s two younger children want nothing to do with her. In fact, a friend says, youngest daughter Tallulah feels much closer to her dad, Bruce Willis – with whom she lives. “She has often requested that Demi not attend public functions with her because she’s afraid of her getting drunk, desperate and flirty,” the friend confides, adding that Tallulah, 18, has been “mortified” by Demi’s wild partying in recent weeks. “She loves her mother, but she wants her to get help,” says the friend, adding that Scout, 20, feels the same. “She’s humiliated by the way Demi’s been acting – and she’s also furious at Rumer, who she feels has been enabling her.” According to the friend, neither Scout nor Tallulah wants anything to do with Demi until she goes through rehab and gets the help she needs.

[From In Touch, print edition, February 13, 2012]

Fat chance that Demi goes to rehab. She’s turning to Kabbalah as usual to help justify her behavior. I doubt it will help her but I hope I’m wrong.

Can you imagine if your mom was partying with your sister and grinding all over guys your age? You would totally try to avoid her. But if she went through a crisis like this, I like to think I’d be there for my mom and I hope that Scout and Tallulah have stepped up.

There are plenty of other recent stories about Demi. People is reporting that Demi’s ex, Bruce Willis, wanted her to get help prior to her OD. They report that Brucewas worried about her and wanted her to get better. Many of her friends did the same thing, but she just wouldn’t listen.” Paparazzi agency X17 reports that both Bruce and Demi’s more recent ex, Ashton Kutcher, visited her separately on Wednesday. Radar has a story straight from Ashton’s camp about how much he cares for Demi and how he’s been praying for her. I know this is spin, but I want to believe this. Here’s Radar’s report:

Demi Moore’s estranged husband Ashton Kutcher was photographed going to her Benedict Canyon estate on Wednesday, but that wasn’t his first visit to her since her hospitalization, and has exclusively learned that the Two and a Half Men star has been praying with Demi, and offering support during this tumultuous time in her life.

As previously reported, the 49-year-old actress has been struggling with anorexia and had been taking the prescription drug Adderall leading up to her seizure on January 23.

Kutcher was in Brazil during Moore’s meltdown, and was criticized for partying and being seen at a concert with another woman during Demi’s time of need. However, as soon the Punk’d star returned to LA, he sought counsel and guidance from spiritual advisers at the Kabbalah Center in Beverly Hills on how he could best help Demi.

“This has been a very hard time for Ashton. He loves Demi very much, and he feels absolutely helpless right now,” a source close to the situation tells “Ashton and Demi have been praying together at her house, and he mainly just wants to provide comfort to her right now.

“This absolutely isn’t a reconciliation, but there is still a lot of love there and he would never turn his back on her — it’s just not who Ashton is.”

And, while many people in Demi’s inner circle are pushing her to go to rehab, Ashton isn’t pressuring her at all to do anything she isn’t ready for.

“Ashton has had loved ones in his life that have dealt with addiction issues, and he realizes that it’s counter-productive for someone to be forced to go to rehab,” the insider says. “Ashton knows the addict has to want to get help for themselves. There is a lot of noise around Demi right now, and Ashton wants her to know he is there for her and supports her no matter what.

“Ashton absolutely wants her to get help for what he thinks is the biggest threat to her health, anorexia, but Demi just isn’t ready to take that next step yet.”

[From Radar Online]

The article goes on to claim that Ashton has been “reclusive and very somber” on the set of “Two and a Half Men.” Ashton has been partying his ass off in Brazil, he’s not all down in the dumps over Demi. It took him a while to get back to the US after her health crisis too. I believe he cares about her and is trying to help, but this portrait of him as “reclusive” and “somber” doesn’t ring true with the photos and tweets we’ve seen from him.

I hope that Demi gets sober and well, and that she’s able to retain some sort of career or life’s purpose. She’s supposedly “despondent” that she’s not getting movie roles anymore. Someone moved her cheese and she’s been making herself sick looking for it in the same place over and over again.

Scout is the blonde in sunglasses. She’s shown on 11-25-11 on a day out in Paris with her dad Bruce. Tallulah is shown with her dad and his wife Emma Heming on 2-22-10. She’s shown with her mom on 3-24-08. Rumer and Demi are shown out on 1-14-12. Credit:

    Dang, do all three of his female children look like him?

    Anyway, I would not want my mother out partying with me and hitting on my friends either! ^_^

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I don’t want to think of what kind of issues I would have if my mom looked like Demi Moore used to and I looked like the female Bruce Willis. Bruce definitely has a manly face. He’s not my type but he’s not ugly by any means.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Whichever girl that is in the second pic, looks like a Baldwin brother. And the daughter in the 3rd pic looks like Jillian Michaels. Strange.

  2. Happymom says:

    I’m guessing that since Rumer is the oldest, she sees herself as protecting her mom, not enabling her. She’s probably been afraid to leave her alone, hence the hanging out. The whole thing is very sad.

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      that is what I thought – she is being the mother. She probably prefers her om act out with her friends than with strangers, but it has got to be hard to deal with.

    • Twez says:

      I’m sure she doesn’t want to give up the publicity opportunities of being papped at mom’s side, either.

    • ccoop says:

      Yes, Rumer is parenting her mother (dutiful oldest child behavior) and the other two are distancing themselves and accusing Rumer of “enabling”. Very typical behavior when a parent is off the rails and the kids seem to be functioning as the adults in the relationship.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @CCoop, ITA. I’d also like to add that the one sticking by the drug dependent parent usually has substance abuse issues themselves. My husband is one of three, and his alcoholic mother usually partied with his younger sister and her friends. His younger sister is a recovering crack/meth addict and still an alcoholic. She constantly defends her mothers behavior, while my husband and his older sister cut their mother out.

  3. Tapioca says:

    Happy 18th Birthday Lula!

    (Did she change her name after all?)

  4. bea says:

    As much as I don’t like AK, you really can’t blame him for wanting to put that mess behind him. Didn’t really do it like a man, but really he’s more of a punk, right?

    I feel for her kids too. Having someone in your life that is an on-going problem really drains your energy. She needs to come to grips with it and get well.

    • Siren6 says:

      Total agreement. I think everyone else is just seeing the extent of the crazy he’s had to put up with behind the scenes for years. I don’t really want to feel sympathy for him, but I can’t help it.

    • Petunia says:

      I agree with both of your statements, Bea. And her kids are really just now becoming adults, so I imagine it must be hard for them to deal with their mother’s rather complex problems so I can understand them staying clear for a bit. Rumor seems to like to party so I kind of wonder if she’s picked up some bad habits from her mother? Hopefully not but addiction does run in families.

    • Dutch says:

      Not a Kutcher fan either but totally don’t get the flak AK is getting for “not being there” for Demi. 99 percent of guys would not walk across the street to pour a glass of water on their ex- or soon-to-be-ex wives if they were on fire, especially those bad habits and behaviors were one of the reasons for the split.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        I also cannot stand the man. I never got why such a (then) beautiful woman wanted anything to do with him. I missed the flack he is getting.

        Again, I can’t stand the man but this was going on before they broke up. This has nothing to do with him. He *did* stand by her for a while. I think he tried.

        I almost think his cheating was *his* cry for help and he gave her an out to make it look like it was his fault. He bears no fault in this unless he drugged her up. She’s been looking anorexic and out of it for a while.

        That is the first time in my life I have defended a cheater. That is so said.

    • Mar says:

      Once you are divorced- it’s just not your problem anymore. He freed himself of her mess.

  5. imabrat says:

    Sad, just sad.

  6. lucy2 says:

    The Willis genes are strong in those kids!

    I can’t blame the kids if they’ve had it with her. She’s been acting like an idiot for several years now, and I picture her having been so wrapped up in her young hubby Ashton that she didn’t pay much attention to them.

    • Petunia says:

      Or so wrapped up in her strange quest for youth that she’s not put her full effort into mothering them.

      And one thing that young people are very aware of, and that’s public embarrassment. If your mother is bumping and grinding against boys’ butts and those boys are your own age, and she’s inhaling kid drugs to get high and be “cool,” you can only imagine how humiliated her children must feel.

      And no way will she get younger fans this way; although they’re more tolerant on many issues, age isn’t one of them. They’re more rigid on older people trying to act young and hanging around with young people than older people are! Because it embarrasses them!

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I don’t really think she was that wrapped up in Ashton at least not for a while. She just went off the deep end. Ashton (and again I am not a fan)… Ashton seemed to go out of his way to make a family here. He went on family outings. He hung out with Bruce. There were all sorts of happy civil extended family pictures. If anything, I think those girls miss him more than her.

  7. Sol says:

    She is loving all the attention!!!

    • vic says:

      Agreed. I bet she’s eating this up.

      • Petunia says:

        I hate to say it but she probably thinks it’ll help land her a movie role. But I think the opposite will happen, the roles will dry up, unless someone offers her something out of sympathy. Will people want to watch her on the big screen after she’s so embarrassed herself? I guess time will tell.

    • Julie says:

      You have to be as clueless as the come.

  8. kit says:

    In the second picture from the bottom, the daughter looks like a young Joaquin Phoenix in drag. Cruel, I know, but I can’t stop staring at it.

  9. brin says:

    Grow up and get to rehab, Demi, before you lose your daughters forever.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously. I cannot imagine putting myself in a situation that would alienate me from my kids and/or cause them serious psychological damage. She’s not only hurting herself she is hurting them, so sad.

  10. Elle says:

    All the three girls have no charme and are not attractive at all. They look dull and boring. They look spoiled.

    I have seen pictures of the three MJ Kids recently, and all kids seem to be responsive, lovely and charming. One does see that the Michael Jackson has raised his kids and now his mother does so.

    With the girls of Demi and Bruce it looks like they did not get any kind of parental education or dicipline. Very sad though.

    I wonder how the children of Sarak Jessica Parker will become, because they claim there is always a parents there for the children.

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      not sure where you got that sweeping generalization about the daughters but it read very unfair. One lives with Dad and one is in school and one is babysitting her Mom. Slice of Americana right there.

      • Veruca says:

        There must be some depth there. The Coffee song was great. (My Sober)

        It’s sad to watch that video now, considering the way things have turned…

      • barb333 says:

        I think she meant how they brought up and not how they are being raised now. And I get it what she was saying. If the parents are hands on, the children turn out one way, versus being raised by nannies. Maybe, not sure, but I do agree that MJ’a kids seem very together. He did a wonderful job in raising them with the short amount of time he had. Willis girls? Maybe not so much.

      • Erinn says:

        I don’t understand where people are getting these generalizations about the Willis girls. What have they done to warrant this? I haven’t heard anything negative about them. How do you figure they need discipline when they are the ones trying to take care of their mother who is in a spiral?

        Elle, your comments seem so off the wall! You’re pulling a lot out of the candid photos here.

        I agree with JudyJudyJudy.

      • Elle says:

        I think I can have my opinion about the girls. And I see what I see.

        There are no pictures of them with Demi recently, where they are together with their mom. They do not look loving regarding their their mom and they certainly behave not loving towards their mom.

        Demi might have have a crisis. But how can one say he does not want anything to do with the parent as long as the parent has not behaved badly TOWARDS them. Did they rush to their mom into the hospital? Did they made any kind of statement about their mom, that she is a good mom and caring, which maybe would have helped Demi?

        All behaved like they were ashamed of Demi. Especially like Rumer in that picture with her Demi.

        Many people do have a crisis if they are seperate, what they do need is support. That is what a family is there for.

        And yes, I think MJ was a great parent, his children are lovely and well educated. And that is the result of loving and caring parenting.

    • Lexi says:

      Seriously, you think Michael Jackson was a great”parent”? Wow.

      I blame Angelina Jolie for all Demi’s troubles.

      • Kimlee says:

        Lol too funny…

      • ZenB!tch says:

        I’d rather blame Joseph Jackson who was not a great parent. Why are his kids all out there now? They are kids not singers or actors or anything. They may be later but now they should be in school. I’m not blaming Michael – we’ve all seen HIS parents and we all know how he ended up. I am blaming his parents and their publicity machine.

    • DreamyK says:

      @Elle I agree. All these posters who are throwing you shade need to do a Google Image with the words “Scout Willis Motorcycle”. I rest my case.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Oh dear. Is *that* why Demi fell over the edge?

      • Bluesky says:

        Eek! Dreamy, you are right! If I’d done that in college, my sorority sisters would have staged an intervention! And my mother would have been there, wondering where she’d gone wrong. One kid’s acting out, and the oldest is codependent. So, Demi looks an awful lot like an addict.

  11. mel2 says:

    Talk about mid life crisis. I hope Demi gets it 2gether b4 it’s too late.

  12. Kara Ann says:

    Demi may not realize it but this whole Ashton is Over thing could be the best thing that has happened in her life. I think she really tried hard to be his “young” wife and, let’s face it, that has to be incredibly draining. Maybe, after she gets some perspective, she will be able to live comfortably in her own aging skin.

    • barb333 says:

      I think you are on to something there. Haven’t heard it put quite like that, and I totally agree. 🙂

  13. Lem says:

    People always forget how square and unattractive Demi’s original face was, the girls look like Bruce yes. The bookends also have a striking resemblance to Demi’s original bone structure. They seem to have her face with his nose. Odd I never noticed how disproportionate before …

  14. Dani says:

    I mean they’re divorced, why does he need to be there for her ‘in her time of need’? She’s obviously doing this to herself; no one is forcing her scarecrow looking self to go out and party like a 20 year old. Your body can’t handle it. I honestly don’t get why everyone is hounding on Ashton. This woman has issues that lie farrrrrr past her relationship with him.

    • Lady D says:

      I don’t understand why everyone thinks he should be there for her either. Or why he deserves a hard time for living his life and not rushing to be by her side. They are getting divorced. The relationship is over.

    • Carolyn says:

      If there was any skerrick of feeling between Ashton and Demi (as in they may reconcile) then he would be there. There’s not….they’ve obviously really really split. In regards to the comments about whether Lula or Scout support their mum, the paps don’t think photos of them are newsworthy to feature at this point in time so there’s no photo/story evidence otherwise. Of course we have no idea what’s been going on behind the scenes. With you all in wishing Demi finds the strength to undertake real counselling and rehab. This pretend Kaballah nonsense irritates me as much as Scientology. Demi has serious drug, alcohol and psych problems that wearing a red string and praying just aren’t going to fix.

  15. poopie says:

    yea, RIGHT : i can just see these two

  16. Maritza says:

    The girls actually resemble Demi Moore’s mom. I looked her up, they all look more like their grandma. As for Demi, I think she is going through a denial phase, she knows she is reaching 50 soon, she may have menopause symptoms too.

  17. dorothy says:

    Sounds like everyone has always taken care of her. First Bruce, then Ashton, now the kids. Good lord lady, grow up.

    • Petunia says:

      Yeah. I think you’re onto something.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Oh, yes. Her issues go way back to before the days when she Mrs. Doofus Kutcher and Mrs. Glassfoot Willis. She’s been a party girl since her teens–ask her first husband who she ditched in order to become engaged to Emilio Estevez, he could relate some stuff, I’m sure. Ask any of the St. Elmo’s Fire cast, she was very nearly fired from that film and was given an ultimatum: rehab or job termination. Maybe I sound judgemental, but she seems to be the classic ‘I can’t even breathe unless there’s a prominent male inflating my lungs for me’ type. We all know some, don’t we?

      I don’t remember where I saw the video, but I remember a video of her at the age of about 20 at a birthday party for a boy for was probably in his early teens and she was clearly on everything, just babbling and pawing the kid who developed this ‘Oh Lord, Raspy Gin-Tits is coked to the gills again. Shouldn’t this be sexy wish fulfillment? Am I going to be uncomfortable and feel sad for a much older girl at my party? Dear Trapper Keeper…’

  18. Newtsgal says:

    I’m not even related to Demi and I don’t want anything to do with her.

    p.s. Hey Demi, Your old except it and get over it already. It happening to all of us.

    • barb333 says:

      50 is not old. Just aging. 😉

      • Newtsgal says:

        Sorry! How about this..
        p.s. Hey Demi, your getting older, except it and get over it. It happens to everyone.

    • everyperson says:

      it’s spelled accept it, not except it.

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      yeah, like she is the only woman in the world who is freaked about aging. Please.
      I see 20 year olds getting botox to “prevent” lines – the vacuous vanity of the times is depressing. In Hollywood it must be just deathly vicious. So many ugly men running studios and so many women to bludgeon.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        As a former studio employee… my former dept had a big event. We invited the studio president (not the well known, tall , attractive CEO) Jesus Henry Christ! I was at the receiving table passing out name tags. My eyes bugged out when I saw him. He wasn’t technically ugly but I *towered* over him. I’m 5’3″.

        As part of Hollywood, however small. It’s always bothered me that these ugly dwarves are taking their horrible self image and forcing it on the women of America via their treatment of female artists. I swear it’s vengeance to make us feel as hideous as they are.

        *Not Katzenberg – he is short AND ugly and works in animation.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        Isn’t it something? Harvey Weinstein is married to one of the Marchesa girls who is 35, tops. He’s bedded more starlets than Lohan’s got crack scabs, so they *must* have an understanding.

  19. Palermo says:

    Demi’s legs in that last photo, oh my

  20. Asli says:

    ”Someone moved her cheese and she’s been making herself sick looking for it at the same place over and over again.”

    I have not heard at more true statement than that. Spot on, CB!

  21. Little Darling says:

    Any header that says a person’s child wants nothing to do with them makes me sad, especially in this case where it’s not a Courtney Love situation, as in Demi is having personal problems, not necessarily being a “bad” mother. She’s in crisis and needs support. She took very, very, very good care of her daughters for years. The little one, I can understand going to live with dad, but damn…Demi is a lost soul, not the devil.

    I don’t know…I think loyalty counts for a lot in a time of struggle.

    As for Ashton, he doesn’t give a care about her, probably only showed for public face. I think he should stay away from her during all of this, as his appearance might only have her spiral out again.

    I don’t think she’s going to rehab though, unfortunately. She definitely needs to grow up, own up and give up the need to be young.

    Why can’t women just own their age and maturity with grace? I just turned 36 and I wear it like a badge of honor. Age and wisdom is something to be PROUD of.

    • taxi says:

      How do you know “she took very, very, very good care of her daughters for years”? She must have spent a lot of time dating, playing, partying with Ashton & previous bf’s. I doubt she made routine childcare her first priority. P-T conferences, after school activities? Probably not. She was out parading with her dude.

      Bruce appeared to do a lot of the basics, much to his credit.

      • happyrobot says:

        Well, we don’t know she was a bad mother for many years, either. Didn’t she live in Idaho for quite a long time, raising the girls “normally” and out of the spotlight? If childcare wasn’t a priority, I don’t know why she’d leave LA since there’s definitely more of a scene and access there.

        Now, that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had have substance abuse issues the whole time, but acting the fool for the last few years also doesn’t mean she’s been neglectful of her kids for the previous 15 years.

        Just sayin’.

    • Happymom says:

      I’m guessing you’ve never had a parent with substance abuse problems. It’s not her daughters’ job to “save” her. We also have no idea how long this has been going on, and what her family has tried to do to get her to see she needs help. Also, not to be snarky but at 36 you’re not exactly in the same boat as about to turn 50. Get back to us in 10 years and let us know how you feel about it. I’m 45 and never felt “older” until very recently. That doesn’t mean I’m going to start hanging out with 25 year olds, or getting all kinds of crazy “work” done-but I don’t have the same insecurities/troubled background as Demi obviously does.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        PLEASE DON’T SAY FIFTY! It sounds so old even if its not as old as it was when I was a kid.

        I’m 42. I’m starting to feel it. I can’t see it yet. I’ve never been skinny so that is not an issue and I have no wrinkles. For me it’s more of not relating to what young people are into and all that stuff. I finally don’t want to be up all night at the latest club or wear the latest stuff. I’m not stuck in the 80s and drooling at the Van Halen reunion like some of my peers but I suddenly no longer care about the latest and greatest music and fashion. It’s a weird place to be.

    ‘Can you imagine if your mom was partying with your sister and grinding all over guys your age?’

  23. BELLA says:

    kaballah? I think a sraight-jacket is more like it!!

  24. benny says:

    She needs help. Maybe the whole family can force an intervention together, so no one person is the “bad guy.” Or they can wait it out until she’s ready to acknowledge that she needs help. But she could be dead by then.

  25. NYC_girl says:

    “…drunk, desperate and flirty.” When I first read that I thought it said “filthy.” LOL!

  26. Kimberly says:

    This whole situation is completely average to us normal people. I think it’s hilarious that Hollywood is not familiar with an actual family dynamtic, even as dysfunctional as these people are.

    -Rumor not enabling, trying to protect mother, did what many daughters and parents have done. “if you party do it here”

    -2 younger daughters are embarrassed, don’t have the wisdom because they’re little girls.

    -Ashton- hit it and quit it, wants to buck around. He’s a really bad actor and got the same disease that David D. from Californiacation got.
    disease named:
    MAGW -Method Acting Gone Wild

    Actors/Actresses that suck get lost in their characters.

  27. layla says:

    I watched Ghost on the weekend… it was raining and just happened to be on tv… BUT.. I was AMAZED at how different Demi’s face was.

    Her tweaking has been subtle over the years so you don’t really notice a dramatic change. But she is BARELY EVEN CUTE in Ghost and with overall looked VERY MANLY (and no, not because of the short hair) It was a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FACE.

    It was dumbfounding.

  28. fabgrrl says:

    I’m surprised Demi wants to be around her daughters. They aren’t babies, after all, and that makes her look *shudder* old – having adult kids.

  29. Shay Kay says:

    Her children are suffering the most for her refusal to grow up, get help, and be an adult. Sorry but she gets zero sympathy as she should be the one listening to her daughters’s dramas not the other way around.

    Rumor: “Mom I have a problem with this guy and I wondered if you could..”

    Demi: “Not now hon ’cause I’m the one with man trouble. Ashton is just a big asshat… if I landed myself in the hospital he’d have to come see me..hummmmmm”

    Scout: “Mom I think Rumor might need you’re attention right now because..”

    Demi: “Hey can you pour me a red bull, run a grab my smokes, and plan a party for tonight?! I’m feeling HOOOOT tonight darlings!”

    Tullulah: “That’s it I’m going back to Dad’s place. Catch you later psycho.”

    Rumor: “But guys she might die if we don’t take care of her and it would be our fault.”

    Demi: “I’m dying for some whip its and a little Zachy Efron right now!”

  30. tooey says:

    Hard to believe but I’m starting to feel sympathy for Ashton now. It can not have been easy trying to reassure this sadly desperate woman. Frankly, I think he just got tired of it and moved on to more “low maintenance” gals. Beauty is great and all, but if underneath all you are is an empty shell….

    This situation is sad but hardly surprising -let’s face facts, were all waiting for this to happen. AK is a douche, it’s not worth discussing. He obviously hitched his wagon to hers, his star took off, hers fell, and as she approached 50 he passive aggressively cheated on her until she dumped him and had a freak out. The daughters look like BW, but they all don’t photograph well IMO, and I have seen some pics where they look stunning. I’m the same way (I don’t have their head shape issues, but I’m not photogenic nor is my sister, who is gorgeous in person BTW, I think some features just aren’t photogenic).

    Anyway, that was off topic. What I meant to say is that she may be despondent, but she did have a film role until she whipped and convulsed her way out of it – The Linda Lovelace biopic as Gloria Steinem. Speaking of, I think what she’s really sad about is that she squandered her career for AK and the high life. Let’s face it, she’s ridiculously wealthy and didn’t need to work. She had her boy toy, she was happy, and probably wasn’t spending too much time with her kids. Then, wham! The divorce, cheating, empty nest, 50 coming up on her with a quickness, and the realization she can’t have another family, well, biologically, that has to really sting no matter how rich and famous you are. She probably has a lot of regret IMO, of the way she spent the past 8 or so years. It’s never to late to get it together, and hopefully her younger daughters will forgive her. We don’t know what went on behind closed doors though. I’m assuming it was pretty crazy though. Final thought: when you’re that rich, there’s no excuse for taking fake drugs, especially in California. Get the real stuff Demi! Not really though, I think she needs some counseling, rehab, and treatment for anorexia and while you’re at it psychotherapy for narcissistic personality. It’s clear to me she’s become her own mother, whom she hated. Sad

    I feel sorry for the daughters – I think they sound like nice people; they don’t seem to cause drama or anything like the Kardashians!

      They are wonderful compared to he trashy,unremarkable andplastic sugried to death Kartrashians. Bravo to them for being refreshingly who they are,both physically and everything. DO NOT TRY TO BE PLASTIC AND FAKEASSED GIRLS. LOVE THEM.

    Celebitchy, I agree with the sentiments in this article, but in regards to the comment about her two younger daughters stepping up I would say that’s not necessarily what needs to happen. They’re still quite young, and it’s hard to know how long they’ve been dealing with this kind of thing with their mom.

    Also, if the (pretty strong) rumors that Demi and Ashton had an open marriage are true, her children likely know about it and have probably had to deal with some embarrassing (to say the least) behavior from their mom for a long time. True they SHOULD be there for her, but can you blame them for being a little pissed off right now? They’ll probably come around, but I’m sure they’re understandably over it right now.

  34. DI says:

    it’s pathetic that she can’t let them have their time in the spotlight without her trying to steal it

  35. Jana Goodwin says:

    Poor Demi wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to have the legs of an 80 year old!

    Is that Rumer’s natural nose? I’ve just never seen a nose so narrow.

  37. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Demi has had these issues for a long, loooooong time. for her younger daughters to wash their hands of her they have had to be tolerating her idiocy for YEARS with many incidents and so forth.
    I dont blame them at all. Im not even a blood relative and IM embarrassed.
    And, quite frankly, I dont blame Ashton at all for taking a powder. Im not on the Ashton hate train. So he cheated on her, big whoop? Would sleeping with an anorexic, wacked out sloppy drunk.
    When I saw that picture of them leaving a party and she was dancing in the street barefoot. I noted the look on Ashtons face and I thought “Yeah, Im embarrassed too Ashton.” Younger guys, for the record, love the CONFIDENCE of older women. NOT the simpering weakness. She handed him the upper hand by groveling and being weak. had she maintained a strong dignified demenor they might still be together.
    Grow up Demi. so, your not the fresh face on the block. Move on. Thats the biz. You are a HYWD legend and a maverick in many ways. You have a stupid amount to be grateful and happy for. Salvage what little dignity you have left, build on it, put on your big girl panties and eat some F88king food. your body is a machine that needs, you know, sustinence. In addition to that why dont you register for some college classes for literature or something. recognize there is something outside of yourself and your beauty that exists. expand your mind without drugs and GROW as a person. By 50 you should be more wise. Sad to see her implode but this is what BEAUTY and NOTHING else looks like. no character, no depth, no wisdom. Shes an empty shell.

    Cher’s kids would have gone through a lifetime of embarrassment at their mother’s hands also. It must be hard for kids growing up with a mother who is all display and no substance. Is a career worth the human cost all round??????

  39. Amy says:

    Standing up for Cher. Demi could take a lesson or two, because what I have always admired about that woman (Cher) is that she has always owned her stuff.

    Clearly, that is not going on in this situation. Beyond that, there’s nothing easier than running other people’s lives from a distance. I’m totally on Team Hope She Gets Help and I am also totally on Team Those Daughters Need Stability and Healthy Female Role Models. Hopefully there are some aunts, cousins, grandmas and family friends stepping up.

  40. Dana says:

    Demi may not KNOW how to parent. Her own childhood contains a father who committed suicide and a drunken mess of a mother. She fled this bedlam at 19 when she wed Freddy Moore.

    • Venice says:

      All she seems to care about is her party/drug life. You would think if she hated her mom so much because she was wasted all the time she would NOT follow in her footsteps.
      Demi better wise up or else her girls will cut her off like she did her own mom. Ahhh karma?

  41. jwoolman says:

    Maybe it’s time to stop trashing Ashton K and realize there was a lot going on with this woman that he didn’t break and he can’t fix. We don’t know what kind of emotional blackmail she may have aimed at him. The public “cheating” (? thought they had an open relationship…) may have been deliberate to get her to break it off with him playing the role of villain. Not rushing to her side ( her younger daughters also didn’t do that) makes a lot of sense from that standpoint. Tough love and all that, not rewarding stupid behavior with the attention she craves. He obviously still cares about her or else he would have stayed away entirely. But being with her didn’t stop her behavior before. She has to fix herself.

    They have got to be the three ugliest sisters in hollywood. I’m sorry… I can’t help it.

    I’m just going to throw this out there, Rehab for what exactly? Whip its are a gas you can buy at Whole Food for about $6 bucks, it reduces the oxygen to your brain making you high, and K2 or Spice is synthetic pot, unless she was smoking day and night, why would you got to therapy for that? I know they have Rehab programs pot, but is she smoking that much? She probably had an anxiety attack and nothing more or she’d been hospitalize for more than a day. That leaves Red Bull, and I don’t think they have Rehab for that.

    She’s got emotional problems, she needs therapy, Rehab is just a retarded idea. Everyone’s got problems and if she is anorexic, sure get her help but other than that she’s just got to work through a painful divorce of a much younger man getting tired of you just like everyone thought he would do. Time will heal most of this. I just don’t see anything but magazine sales to justify Rehab for this very sad woman.

  44. TriedTru says:

    Ok, just have to throw this out there… “Can you imagine if your mom was partying with your sister and grinding all over guys your age? You would totally try to avoid her. But if she went through a crisis like this, I like to think I’d be there for my mom and I hope that Scout and Tallulah have stepped up.”

    While I can respect where this sentiment is coming from, it is highly insensitive to the people/children/family members that have been dealing with an unstable person for some time. At what point do you get to just walk away? Why do their problems become your responsibility? And I especially feel this way about children of addicts or unstable people. They need a parent, not a social service project. This doesn’t happen overnight. This is a long process. I applaud the courage it takes for daughters like Scout, Lulu and even Francis Bean to say enough is enough and I deserve to not be burdened with this.

  45. alexandra says:

    I hope Bruce’s wife wont have kids with him. It is unfortunate but if I were her I would avoid it

  46. Cerulean says:

    If this is th stuff that is public I can only imagine the hell behind the scenes. It must be horrible. It does vindicate AK some. It’s hard to love an addict.
    Her poor children. I feel sorry for them.

  47. fawzeya says:

    Am I the only “OLD” Person old enough to remember how Demi treated her mother??? Her mother was an alcoholic and had younger bf’s….Demi wanted nothing to do with her!!!

    She has become her MOTHER!!!

  48. anna says:

    you cant believe all these stuff you read. she’s anorexia and being partying a lot? doesn’t seem legit to me.

    The youngest one is the most attractive of the three sisters.
