Getting bags of Kingsford charcoal yesterday at the grocery store for the cookout and bang, there's the new Star with shocking news.



MARY-KATE OLSEN IN REHAB: BATTLING DRUGS AND ANOREXIA

EXCLUSIVE DETAILS OF MARY-KATE'S BATTLE WITH DRUGS PLUS PHOTOS IN THE NEW ISSUE OF STAR, ON SALE WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30

(New York, June 29, 2004) - Star magazine reveals that Mary-Kate Olsen- who along with twin sister Ashley, form a multi-millionaire power duo-is being treated for a cocaine addiction in an exclusive facility in Utah.

Mary-Kate is currently residing at the exclusive Cirque Lodge in Utah, which is known for its scenic mountain views and a new-age, intensive-therapy approach to treating drug addiction. She was checked in by her father Dave Olsen on June 11, and spent her 18th birthday there by herself on June 13.

The recommended 30-day program costs $29,850, and patients are free to come and go as they please, if their counselor agrees to give them a pass.

The facility's website says it treats eating disorders in addition to drug and alcohol addictions. As it's been widely reported, Mary-Kate is also battling anorexia.

Someone told me the STAR has a new owner who's trying to make them legit. His arguement is why would he invest millions in trash stories if he's just going to get sued over them. It makes sense, but it will take some convincing...

Newsweek had a piece on Star a few weeks ago. They recently brought over the editor of US Weekly and have since changed many of there looks to match them. As far as the Olsen twins go you had to expect that with all the money they had stuff like that happens.

Remember when you watch the Go Gos BEHIND THE MUSIC and they had a drugged up Belinda Carlisle talking about getting laid and playing with herself? I only hope a Mary Kate video is somewhere along those lines, I would laugh myself silly!

Wouldn't surprise me. I mean, a lot of people try coke, but very very few people have the cash to keep it up over and over again. Of course I did see this headline next to "Britney is Pregnant!"

So, we'll see where it goes. If she is an addict, she has a longass road ahead of her. Even boozing will be a problem. But the best of luck to her, and of course to her image :)

But, like Sam Kinison said, if you have $30,000 for rehab, you dont have a problem yet.

The Britney is pregnant rumors have been circulating for at least a week now. It's supposed to be the REAL reason she cancelled her tour, and she's just playing up th knee injury.

The Enquirer is also reporting the cocaine thing. The article is accompanied by horrible photos of Mary-Kate, along with pictures of her at the clinic. The company American Media owns both publications, and they refuse to retract it.

I can't believe that we're treating Star Magazine like it's Reuters or something. C'mon, guys, grains of salt...

I do find it morbidly funny that they put "IT'S DRUGS!" on the cover, like a doctor announcing the birth of a child. I'm sorry, but anyone who actually reads this crap and takes it seriously has to be an idiot. I don't care who the new Editor-in-Chief is, they're still tabloids producing lies and speculation. Hearing the whole "Star is reformed, they got a new Editor!" thing is like a couple years back when they tried to push the fact that the creator and/or editor (or something) of the Enquirer was a Harvard graduate as if that meant anything.

As someone who enjoys the Star, I have a bone to pick with Deputy (Lee) Marshall. The Star was never a Weekly World News or Sun type publication. It is a celebrity dirt sheet. I noticed that if there was hot dirt in The Star, in two weeks the same "news" would be on the cover of People. Like clockwork. I read this crap and attest to roughly %95 accuracy rating. Who are you to proclaim that they printed a phoney receipe for Joe Monatana's veal picata?

Agreed. While obviously not everything is going to be 100% accurate, it may surprise you to see how often it is correct considering it's a tabloid.

If it was Weekly World News it would have been "It's not Anorexia - It's EXTRA ARMS" or something.

There were pictures of them partying in US Weekly or People a while ago and they looked more then just drunk.

She's got millions of dollars and nothing to do ... her doing coke doesn't seem like much of a leap. Plus it could explain why she's skinnier then the other one.

Plus this has been floating around for well over a week now, and the Star has yet to be contacted in any form by the twins' lawyers. These are some serious allegations-if there were no truth to them the solicitors would have been on the phone within seconds of the story being announced, especially when you consider the girls' child-star butter-wouldn't-melt reputations.



Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.

I can't believe people are bashing the good name of the Weekly World News. I mean, where else would I read about Bill Clinton hiring a three-breasted intern? Or read about the 400 pound cat that went on Atkins? Or Bat Boy, for crying out loud!

It's my favorite source of reporting this side of Fox News...

and now according to Page Six (nypost.com) the Olsen Sisters have been dropped from the "Got Milk" campaign - too many possible comments could be made re the white substance just below their noses.......

And plus, these drug things are always denied at the outset... then a few years later, on the VH1 "Behind the Music" special, Mary Kate will be like, "Yeah, I was tooting about $5,000 a week up my nose..."

As for tabloids, I believe the National Enquirer broke so much stuff on Lewinsky five years ago that the New York Times ended up citing them. Of course, some of it's bullshit, but as avid dirtsheet readers, we should be accustomed to this.

I won't be another "chill", and I'll admit I stand corrected. Not so much for the points made in this thread, but moreso because I was humiliated by the idea of someone comparing me to Lee Marshall.





It just ANGERS me when any publication puts up speculation as news. Sure, it's probably true, but what if it's not? What publications like The Star, The Enquirer, and their ilk do to journalism with these cover stories is unbelievable, and I really think that they should at least make an ATTEMPT to model themselves after a more respectable, non-dirtsheet newspaper that reports ACTUAL TRUE NEWS ITEMS.





...crap, nevermind. In the words of former President Truman: "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."

And for the someone who mentioned Britney, I love how white trash she's finally appearing to everyone now.

I mean she's a home wrecker and the guy has the grossest little hick beard/stache going. I love it.

Besides you and 14 or 15 others posting in this thread?]



"I'm very sorry the government taxes their tips, that's fucked up. That ain't my fault. It would seem to me that waitresses are one of the many groups the government fucks in the ass on a regular basis. Look, if you ask me to sign something that says the government shouldn't do that, I'll sign it, put it to a vote, I'll vote for it, but what I won't do is play ball. And as for this non-college bullshit I got two words for that: learn to fuckin' type, 'cause if you're expecting me to help out with the rent you're in for a big fuckin' surprise."
