Country singer who has a lot of problems, subject of numerous Fark headlines in Entertainment tab.

Drug abuse? Check.
Sex video? Check.
Dead boyfriends? Check.
Several suicide attempts? Check.
Several kids out of wedlock? Check.
Dead before 50? Check.

I feel sorry for everyone involved with her. She seems like she was a real mess, and despite having shiatloads of money and fame, she never got the help she needed and she was probably surrounded by enablers and assholes who let her self-destruct.

I almost feel sorry for her, too, but the fact that she had it all and couldn't find a way to push through  for her kids makes me feel like everyone's better off this way. She was hurting, and now her pain is over. Her kids might have a better chance now than they did with her... And that's the real tragedy here.

I use to like Dr. Drew back during the love line days, but once he started doing remote diagnosis of people as a talking head on CNN he crossed a line. We have enough mental health problems in this country without someone who does actually have the credentials(unlike Dr. Phil) turning the DSM-IV into a game show.

I agree. To me, "doctor" Phil is as much of a scum-sucking, bottom-dwelling, slimebag as Sylvia Browne. People who prey on people in pain, and LIE THEIR ASSES OFF to do it..? There should be a special kind of jail for those folks. One involving hot pokers in their anuses.

And yes, I think some funeral directors fit that bill, too. When a family is grieving and you pressure them to spend way more than they need to on a special casket, urn or additional services that aren't worth what you're charging for them, you're a prick. $6,000 for an urn? And the prices some of them try to charge just for PILLOWS for corpses? Give me a damn break.

Anyone who takes advantage of people who are in a moment of weakness or in mourning should be keel-hauled in a Chuck-E-Cheese ball pit once every hour for the remainder of their lives (and if you don't know how nasty those ball pits are, you'd learn really quick if you suffered that fate).

Before she was famous she waited on my best friend and I at a Denny's. We called her Alice the whole night because we had just been introduced to Alice's Restaurant. Several days later we went to pick up another friend Neil McCready who we had told about this cute waitress a while before hand and found out she was his half sister. We apologized for some rude comments about her. After a little while he said "It's not like we grew up together.... a few times I thought 'she's only my half sister, is there a way I could fark the other half?'"
Neil moved away and we lost touch.
A few years later she had a recording career. I confused my best friend by insisting he watch Country music television. When the video came on he looked at it confused, turned to me and said "It's Alice!"
Over the years I've told this story a few times and no one ever knew who she was.

I was really hoping she was on the better side of her recovery these past few years in sobriety.  From her life spent catering to her addictions, and her recurring visits towards rehabilitation, she was facing enough struggles in an of themselves.  Add to that her fame - and falls from fame- along with her plights to regain custody of her children, find love, and function normally only to have to endure the suicide of her fiance....I don't know how I'd be able to manage all that under the scrutiny of media.  How very sad she was unable to cope despite her efforts after her fiance's suicide.  Some people may call her a coward for killing herself, but the probable reality is, she didn't feel her life worth living and thus opted to extract herself from the lives of those she loved most (her children) thinking that they'd be better off without her.  So sad no one she trusted could convince her otherwise.

WhippingBoy: This is why I hate people. This poor woman's life is so horrible that she feels that suicide is the only answer (leaving two children without a mother), and people are outraged that she shot a dog.

Fark you. Fark all of you and your skewed priorities.


Those two children have been "without" their mother for some time. Her epic selfishness is apparently also its cure. Wah... I have a talent to sing... wah... I'm a popular culture figure of some renown and well off if I'm responsible with my personal finances like the rest of America is expected to be... wah... I don't get to always do what I want exactly when and how I want it... wah... I have to take care of my children properly because I was drunk, high, irresponsible or a moron when I made them in the first place... wah... you get the idea. She is only blameless for the fact that she is apparently from Florida and you can't help where you are born.

Fortunately, it is easy to cull the herd when the herd will cull itself, if you let it.

I have a theory: The dog was the trigger-man in her insurance fraud case to kill her boyfriend. He was shifty, and when the insurance co didn't pay and the police started asking questions, she knew he had to go. But he was ready for her, and the two shot each other.

Dog shot first.

A past history of mental issues, including two previous suicide attempts, a history of addiction, and the recent death of her boyfriend, are way more than enough "reason" for most people. She could afford to get help, sure. But you have to be in a mental state to want the help.

You're welcome to fly down there and have a few kicks at the corpse before they put her in the ground but I don't much see the point.

I also feel sorry for the dead BF, the dog, the surviving family members and friends.

Typically someone shoots the dog/kids/spouse if that person feels they won't be taken care of when the shooter is dead.  I'm not saying it's right, but it is born out of a kind sentiment.  Trying to spare someone pain is a kind sentiment, even if wholly selfish or completely wrong.  The person already might not be in the right state of mind, so, why would they be thinking clearly about this?

You have no idea what you're talking about. A person with clinical depression is like someone with cancer. The world would be a slightly better place if more people would realize this. People don't do rational, normal things when they're mentally disturbed. I know someone who committed suicide -- we all knew it was only a matter of time before the mental illness won. There was nothing that could be done, and it wasn't their fault.

It's something most people with mental illness have to deal with -- their illness tricks them into believing they're "better" and they stop taking the meds. She called her kid, told her she was going to kill herself and that it was the kid's fault, and then she killed herself. She was not a bad person. She loved her kid. But she was sick, and were it not for her illness, she would never have done what she did. She and others who go through this deserve our compassion and understanding.

But this is the Internet -- the greatest place to see people's mental issues on full display, where folks project their own problems in life at total strangers on message boards. Telling me to kill myself landed you on my ignore list. I hope you feel better.

If they have a mental illness, yes. That is exactly right. Welcome to the real world.


You know what...Fark you and your mental illness. As soon as someone commits MURDER, all my sympathy for their "illness" goes right out the window. Cancer is an illness, Diabetes is an illness.....And drug addiction is also an illness....until you kill innocent people. Then you are simply a murdering fark. End of Story.

That is sad.

That person didn't kill her kids, her dog, her spouse... That is my point. I have no sympathy for anyone that is selfish enough to bring harm on an innocent because they are sick.
Yes, I do have some disdain for someone that is blessed with riches and talent that kills themselves, but I'd still have some sympathy for the disease. Kill the dam dog though? Buh bye. Have fun in whatever hell there may be.

i believe Miranda might have something to say about that.
last thing i saw was a story on the today show about her boyfriend dying and they said it looked "suspicious" and there were innuendos that she was involved.

/i know who most of these country singers are unfortunately having been raised in Oklahoma and this was the only type of music my parents allowed to be played in the house.  that and the fact if you live out in the boonies in this state every station plays either country or gospel music, and this is all the music Mrs. Funk likes to listen to.

It depends on the severity of their derangement. For example, if a guy kills someone because he's a paranoid schizophrenic with no grasp on reality, then I don't view him any differently than a rabid dog. The person needs to be removed from society, but I don't have hatred toward them.

At a certain point, blaming them is like blaming a hurricane.

shower_in_my_socks: R.A.Danny: No. Depression doesn't pull a trigger. Depression doesn't force anything. Weakness does.


You have no idea what you're talking about. A person with clinical depression is like someone with cancer. The world would be a slightly better place if more people would realize this. People don't do rational, normal things when they're mentally disturbed. I know someone who committed suicide -- we all knew it was only a matter of time before the mental illness won. There was nothing that could be done, and it wasn't their fault.


Ok, let's be honest. if you have depression (which, unlike cancer, is dependent on a subjective evaluation to determine rather than a lab or other quantitative test) and you don't care enough about yourself because of depression, your friends aren't (unless they are the "I don't have enough to occupy my own life so let me bust into and micro-manage your business" friends), and your family isn't (because they are tired of listening to you whine, or carrying your ass financially because "I just can't...", but no one will admit they are sick of you because it puts them in a bad light) interested nor do they care. I feel bad if you feel bad. Full stop. However, your right to feel bad is YOUR RIGHT, whether it's personality driven or chemically driven. Either way, so what? Your employer doesn't care, your acquaintances don't care and taxpayers possibly paying your SSDI don't care either. You want to off yourself because of it? Be my guest! Don't drag them to a hospital that they don't want to go to because they will end up with hospital bills they can't pay and then IF they struggle through it, their financial life (and anything else requiring an accounting of your time) is ruined. Wanna know how * I * know this? Can I guess which one of the aforementioned categories you fit into?

For Christ's sake: If someone wants to kick their own bucket, you are the one that will feel bad about it... not them. You will probably only feel bad because you would feel worse if you didn't. If they were to feel anything afterward, it would probably be relief from the harpy do-gooders that are telling them "It gets better... don't let a permanent solution solve a temporary problem". Let nature do its job... no more survival of the weakest. Look what it leads to! Sheesh.
 
2013-02-17 11:34:16 PM  
That's very sad. Substance abuse, mental health issues. And her bf died under mysterious circumstances. One has to wonder. And why did you have to shoot your dog? It probably loved you? Sighs. Just a sad waste. Lovely girl, talented singer, young, and gone just like that.

First, the serious talk. Such a sad story. 37 years old, small kids, recently dead boyfriend. The long fall from being a top superstar to this. Years of drug addiction, legal troubles, and suicide attempts. Also almost killed by a bf if I remember correctly. Just depressing, and not at all shocking or surprising. This is FARK, so enough of that.


I guess she's one of "ten thousand angels" now. "All she wanted was everything" and "maybe he'll notice her now". But "you'll never know". When it comes to suicide, "guys do it all the time", and she was always "maybe, maybe not" when it came to doing it.

Again, why would you think that because Mindy McCready killed herself that Blake Shelton would divorce his wife, Miranda Lambert, and put himself back on the market?
That's sort of a long stretch that wouldn't even come close to a joke, even on FARK.

I believe in mercy killing, euthanasia, whatever you want to call it. I remember Terri Shiavo's inglorious end where she was basically starved to death slowly. I remember it and feel utter disgust at the moral cowards who can't bring themselves to legislate to recognize that a right to death with dignity and minimum suffering is something we should extend to people and not just just pets.

Hell, I was defending HST's decision to end his own life when that occurred.

That issue has nothing to do with sensible gun laws that remove guns from homes where people are a danger to themselves and others.

Why is HST okay and she's not?

They both could have lived a lot longer. Neither wanted to.

If it's about the dog, who cares? Thousands are killed every day because people don't want them anymore, or they're found on the streets, or breeders see little imperfections in their markings and cull for genetic purity.

Happiness is arguably the most valuable commodity in the world and here is more proof that fame and fortune can't buy it.  I think most/all of us know at least a few people that are "poor" by U.S. standards but are as happy as can be.  Not true for the Kurt Cobains or Mindy Mcreadys of the world.

I believe HST was in his right mind when he made his decision and I believe the departed Ms Cready was not.

The right medication, the talking cure, rehab, something might have gotten her through this time.

I could be wrong, of course.

Or they'll spend their lives sorry that their mother was in so much pain and glad that she doesn't hurt anymore.  Suicide isn't about the survivors, I don't know why survivors always make it all about them.  The person they loved was hurting with no end in sight and now that person doesn't hurt anymore.  The survivors should be happy about that much and respect their loved one's decision.

I figure after three or four tries, they're really not just crying out for help. There's something inherently different about their unique operating system that wants to shut itself down, and intervening only makes it worse for them.

You say "mental illness," I say, "non-viable genetic variation."

While I now believe you know what you are talking about, and you are speaking from experience, you still don't know what they will grow up feeling. They may feel the way you say they will. She also had a long history of drug/alcohol problems, suicide attempts, legal issues and mental health issues that led to the kids to be taken away from her. The final bout of depression after the suicide of her boyfriend is also known about by her family, friends and the public in general. I think (but don't know) that they are going to figure that out pretty quick. Her youngest will have no memories, and her oldest barely will.

Basically, I just hate when people say "fark them or "they were selfish" when suicide happens.
 
2013-02-18 02:16:00 AM  
I take it from the tone of this thread that we are still entirely way to immature as a society to take mental illness seriously.  fark the mentally ill, right?  It's only your brothers, your parents, and very likely, many of you yourselves.  They should just suck it up and get over it, right?

gadian: The survivors should be happy about that much and respect their loved one's decision.


Lots of "shoulds" in there should be, but ain't.

People go to funerals in general to compete for attention and power in the affected microsociety. There's no other reason for people to stand around staring at a dead person in a coffin. People will talk behind one another's backs saying things like, "No, she's faking it. She's not as hurt as *I* am!" Judgments fly all over, regardless of the cause of death. "She's only crying for the cameras! I loved him more than she did!"

With suicides, though, there's a special empowerment. People who only knew the deceased peripherally will speak right up and say, "You should have done something! Something's *wrong* with you! You're going to have to live with this! Your relative is burning in HELL right now and it's YOUR fault!"

It's basically what we all know -- People tend to be assholes and attention whores.
 
2013-02-18 02:39:07 AM  

ZeroCorpse: Wow...  Just... Wow. What a sucky life she had.

Drug abuse? Check.
Sex video? Check.
Dead boyfriends? Check.
Several suicide attempts? Check.
Several kids out of wedlock? Check.
Dead before 50? Check.

I feel sorry for everyone involved with her. She seems like she was a real mess, and despite having shiatloads of money and fame, she never got the help she needed and she was probably surrounded by enablers and assholes who let her self-destruct.

I almost feel sorry for her, too, but the fact that she had it all and couldn't find a way to push through  for her kids makes me feel like everyone's better off this way. She was hurting, and now her pain is over. Her kids might have a better chance now than they did with her... And that's the real tragedy here.

She told Dateline NBC: 'I didn't find the bullet, the dog did. It was in the dog's mouth. I mean, that's a horrific things to say, but it was in the dog's mouth.'

Who put a gun up to her heady
But she first shot the dog
Because she was an asshole.

zedster: contrapunctus: kingflower: Good work Dr. Drew!!!

There isn't a circle of Hell deep enough for that human parasite to roast in once he croaks. The shameless exploitation of troubled people is bad enough, but to do it with a veneer of compassion is the mark of a sociopath.

//Atheist.
//Unfortunately.

I use to like Dr. Drew back during the love line days, but once he started doing remote diagnosis of people as a talking head on CNN he crossed a line. We have enough mental health problems in this country without someone who does actually have the credentials(unlike Dr. Phil) turning the DSM-IV into a game show.

//same reason I hate shows like hoarders, mental health issues should not be entertainment


Intervention, Hoarders and Celebrity Rehab serve a very important role in society. We need other losers, crazies and has beens to mock and hold in judgement.

Nothing cheers me up more after a bad day than watching somebody's little disappointment with a mouth full of big black man-meat just to score a sixty-dollar bag of smack. Intervention and anything Dr. Drew puts out is a countless source of schadenfreude and lulz.

Probably because without exception the only people who kill pets are A) dicks B) psychopaths or C) retarded. If that doesn't make sense to you you're probably one of those three.

The My Little Pony Killer: I take it from the tone of this thread that we are still entirely way to immature as a society to take mental illness seriously.  fark the mentally ill, right?  It's only your brothers, your parents, and very likely, many of you yourselves.  They should just suck it up and get over it, right?

/yes, I feel bad about the stupid farking kids and the damn dog
//but a lot of you are outright ignorant of a lot of things in life, much less somebody else's inner workings.


Thank you.  I'm so sick of this shiat.  You wanna be proudly ignorant of all the goddamn science we have about the genetics and biological and environmental origins of mental illness, or just blatantly insensitive to people suffering from something you don't understand and make no effort to understand? Great go for it.  But keep it to you self, asshole.  Not only do you make their suffering worse with your ignorant opinion based on no scientific facts, you sound like a farking redneck moron.  Never do people with these opinions have any medical background or know people with mental illness to base their opinions on (well, statistically you do, but who would disclose their suffering when they have an idiot around like yourself?).  It's reasons like this people don't discuss their problems or seek out help.  "Suck it up!" everyone says.  So what do people do? "I'll just fix it myself"  But do they ever? No.  Does "sucking it up" ever work? No.  Maybe if you had a slightly shiatty time in your life because of some circumstantial shiat, yeah maybe you can work it out on your own.  But you cannot cure severe clinical depression or bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, etc with "sucking it up."  What do these people do?  They drink, do drugs, hurt those around them or themselves, etc.  It's the same shiat with people taking drugs to help themselves, because the stigma attached to it, because fark science and years of research.  For every person who takes an antidepressant or mood stabilizer or what have you for their respective illness, and it farks with them, there's a hundred that are farking themselves by not taking them.  You have blood on your hands and you should feel bad.  But you won't because you're an asshole.

STAY OFF "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" , IT WILL KILL YOU


Mindy McCready is the fifth former cast member of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" to die in the past two years.
The 37-year-old country star, who appeared on Season 3 of the VH1 show, where she suffered an on-camera seizure, was found dead on the front porch of her Arkansas home on Sunday. Authorities said she was the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Alice in Chains bassist http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Music/03/09/obit.mike.starr/index.html " target="_blank">Mike Starr and former "Real World" cast member http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/real-world-hollywood-sta r-joey-kovar-dead-at-29-2012178" target="_blank">Joey Kovar also appeared on the show's third season. Starr died in March 2011 at 44, while Kovar, 29, died in August 2012.
"Grease" actor http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/celebrity.news.gossip/05/27/jeff.conaw ay.dead/index.html" target="_blank">Jeff Conway, 60, who appeared on the show's first season, died of pneumonia in May 2011. However, the doctor who treated him for drug addiction for years told CNN it was his dependence on prescription painkillers that eventually cost him his life.
Authorities said that Season 2 cast member http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/23/us/rodney-king-autopsy" target="_blank">Rodney King's death in June 2012 was the result of accidental drowning, but the alcohol, cocaine, marijuana and PCP found in the 47-year-old's system were contributing factors.
Dr. Drew Pinsky, who hosts his own program on HLN, CNN's sister network, spoke to CNN's Don Lemon on Sunday night about the many "Celebrity Rehab" deaths and losing McCready.
"One of my hopes was, in bringing 'Celebrity Rehab' out, was to teach people how dangerous addiction was," Pinsky told Lemon. "If I was doing a show on cancer, there would not be much surprise when my cancer patient died. In fact, we'd celebrate a few years of good quality life. People don't understand that addiction has virtually the same prognosis. If you have other mental health issues on top of that, it's so much worse. This was not an addiction death, interestingly. This was related to - had her boyfriend not died, I don't think there's any way we'd be in this position right now."
A month ago, David Wilson, the father of McCready's two sons, apparently took his own life. He too was found dead on the porch.
"There's a cautionary tale here about the stigma of mental illness and the way in which the public attack celebrities who take care of themselves," Pinsky said. McCready "became so fearful of the stigma and the way people were responding to her being hospitalized that she actually checked herself out prematurely. ... She is a lovely woman, we have lost her, and it didn't have to go down like thi

Not really. I'm more into Avenged Sevenfold, Asking Alexandria, Disturbed, and classic rock. -But- while country music can get a bit... melodramatic and ham-fisted, it is far from the worst our country has to offer. I was being facetious.

FirstNationalBastard: Oh, and for all the LOL IT'S COUNTRY MUSIC WHO CARES people... what she performed wasn't country, it's badly done pop music with violins (they don't call 'em fiddles anymore, because that's too country).

Real country will not be found on your FM dial, or in the soundtracks of bad movies. Real country sounds nothing like the FM-Friendly Pop Country.

Whatever the dead chick sang was not real country.


Today's "hot" country is just pop with a southern accent. Oddly enough I do like it when I'm in the mood...which is rare but it does happen.
