shower_in_my_socks: ontariolightning: shes in the news a few times a year for tragic circumstances


I'm not doubting that she was a celebrity - obviously she was well known in the country music world - but I work in entertainment and read the trades every day, and I'd never heard of her. Although all of the country artist names sound alike to me.



Running the board Sunday night 7pm to midnight for the local call in show while surfing fark does not count as "working in entertainment."  You still have to go to your job at Best Buy in the morning.

Kevin72: Why did the dog have to die?



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.

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.

Drug abuse? 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.
