Chyna‘s manager thinks he has the answer to the wrestler’s tragic death.
If you remember, last week was a week of tragic deaths, and while Chyna’s kinda got swept under the rug, it really shouldn’t have. She was a wrestling pioneer and though she was kind of down and out, Chyna had a pretty interesting life. Wednesday, manager Anthony Anzaldo gave a statement that said that he believes the pioneer wrestling star died of an accidental overdose of Ambien and Valium. She was 46:
“She accidentally and unintentionally misused her legally prescribed medication over the course of 2-3 weeks. It’s an epidemic,” manager Anthony Anzaldo said in an email.
The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has not yet ruled on a cause of death. Coroner’s office Assistant Chief Ed Winter said full test results aren’t expected back for the next couple of months. “It is not closed,” Winter said of the case.
“It’s premature to give a cause of death on a case that the final tests are not in yet,” Winter said.
Anzaldo said Chyna died after falling asleep April 17 and that he found her at 3:30 p.m. April 20 after being unable to contact her.
“She fell asleep on Sunday night and peacefully took her last breath,” Anzaldo said. He said there were no alcohol or drugs, legal or illegal, at the scene.
Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t often in the news these days, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing – a tabloid-free life is a bit of a blessing in Hollywood, so good for her! However, sometimes it’s the people you hang out with that you’ve got to be careful of… Jamie was forced to frantically call 911 on Tuesday night when an unknown friend had what seemed to be some sort of overdose related to pills and alcohol while they were out! Yikes! When paramedics arrived, the friend was passed out in the back seat of the car they were in.
We’re told Curtis initially tried to drive her friend to the hospital — hence why the friend was in the backseat — but she decided to call 911 instead when the situation took a turn for the worse.
Paramedics took the woman to a nearby hospital. She was treated and released hours later.
Good to hear she’s okay, but people really should be careful about mixing their substances!
Brooke Mueller has a serious problem with drugs and alcohol, far more serious than anyone could have imagined…
Charlie Sheen‘s jewelery-clad ex-wife and mother to his twin sons has a drug addiction, and it’s a serious one. Radar.com reports that Mueller has overdosed no less than six times in the past two years.
It’s a pretty shocking development, but one that isn’t altogether surprising after her most recent drug overdose on crystal meth, which resulted, Radar reports, in her being placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center and sadly losing custody of her boys, Bob and Max, to Denise Richards.
Mueller is enrolled at Betty Ford for the 20th time in her life (yikes, that’s a significant portion of one’s life at the clinic), and sources tell Radar, “It’s amazing Brooke is still alive. She had a horrible Adderall overdose late last year, when she gave the boys to Denise. She had to be hospitalized, and it had definitely taken a toll on her body. The only thing that has saved her when the overdoses occur, is that someone has always been with her, and able to call 911. Brooke doesn’t seem to grasp that her drug addiction and overdoses are going to kill her unless she is able to stay sober. She doesn’t get how lucky she is to still be alive.”
That woman is lucky, but let’s hope her kids will be even luckier, and someday have their mother clean and sober! So sad.
Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston may no longer have been a couple when she died in February, but as he told TODAY’s Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Wednesday morning — his first interview since her death — he still misses her fiercely.
“Our relationship was great,” he said. “I had 14 beautiful, beautiful years with that woman.”
And it’s not just his revisionist history, he insisted: “I can honestly say that — I love that woman with — with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way.”
Still, Whitney and Bobby’s relationship was, almost from the start, filled with conflict of one kind or the other. Brown says he never used hard drugs before meeting Houston, and said that she had used drugs before they were involved. “I worried about it when … we first got together until I tried it,” he said. “And when I tried it, for some reason, I have an addictive personality.”
