Demi Moore Hospitalized, Seeking 'Professional Assistance'

Demi Moore is seeking professional assistance after being rushed to the hospital on Monday night (January 23).

Paramedics responded to the 49-year-old actress’s home in L.A. after a 911 call came in at 10:45 p.m. TMZ reports the hospitalization was due to substance abuse.

“Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health,” says her rep.

“She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends,” the rep added.

    Sad.
    Maybe the young gilds wll understand that beiing to much thin is very dangerous. Maybe I’m wrong, but the more you’re thin, the more meds act in a strong way.

    Whoa.

    She need a proper valium shot in the ass of hers and she will be fine in not time !!!

  • Julie

    I blame Ashton Kutcher…

  • hilda

    It’s sad when a grown ass woman can’t keep it together after a breakup. It’s hurts I know but dude she has three girls who need a better example of a mother.

  • kami

    so sad that all these hw females need a man in their life in order to feel complete. she needs to get some help and learn how to like herself without a man.

  • meeeeeee

    I doubt it’s because of the breakup. They said her drinking was a habit she had while with Ashton – he even used it as an excuse.

  • TexasLovin

    “Exhaustion” yeahhh oooookay!!! Don’t you frickin HATE when celebrities think that we are STUPID?

    She did not get “rushed to the hospital” for exhaustion! I’m a paramedic…. you get rushed to the hospital if you took too many damn pills mixed with booze after not eating for 2-3 days on top of a poor diet anyway. That’s what happened

  • Emily

    What came first the full blown addiction issue or the breakup? Obviously it takes a while to get to rock bottom. She must have had issues long before the breakup.

  • Kirsten

    @hilda:

    I agree! I’m glad she is getting help for her daughters sake.

  • Lynn

    Any 43 year old woman who plays around then marries a 26 year old, is an idiot! She is lucky I was not his mom, for I would have kick her to the curb…

  • Be real

    professional assistance means she needs a psyhchairist

    exhaustion means she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown

    overall health means that she needs to eat …eat solid cooked food that is like a turkey, potatoes, steak, ,meatballs n spaghetti,
    not raw food of veggies and fruits.
    She needs some cooked vegetables like smothered okra with smoked sausage.

    When we are exhausted, we take a nap. a good hot shower. A tylenol. A good meal. Go to sleep. Why can’t she if she is exhausted?

    Demi is 49 and cannot handle that and that she cannot compete with the 20something girls and the acting roles they get and the men they get. Demi had her day in the sun.

    Demi got dumped by Ashton who was simply too young for , even if she has a great figure and as we know, she has flashed her bod over and over. She cannot have kids. He wants kids.
    She had her family. He wants what nature wants and that is to be 33 which he is. He wants to be 29-33 in eveery sense of the word.

    Demi should not ahve married the boy and should now, eat, sleep, and find a man of her age.
    Even Cher finally found a man of her age.

  • Lynn

    Right on Be Real, right on!!

  • CBare818

    Lol @ exhaustion. Really PR spin people – you are going to go with exhaustion when a 911 call was made? Do you really think everyone is an absolute idiot?
    Grow a pair of balls and just say she is seeking treatment and there will be no further comment, PERIOD.
    Publicists are the biggest a$$hats on the planet. Openly, blatant lies in a public announcement.

    As an older woman, if you want to play around, do it Madonna’s way. Young, temporary boytoys, not long term lovers or husbands. Sorry, it seems sexist, but old woman and younger man don’t work out as well as older man young woman.
    Peace to Demi Moore – who should have known better.
    Good riddance to Asston Kutcher – hope he disappears from TV soon.

  • SnOOKIE

    poor Demi

  • Gossipgirl

    First Heather Locklear and now Demi……Hollywood just has no use for women in their age group. They really need to move on with their lives and find other ways to work on their self-esteem. This is really sad.

  • Lynn

    Ashton is doing exactly what “he should be doing” as a 33 year old man, have fun, explore, date, etc!! Shame on Demi, yes, she should have known better.

  • hiccup2

    Bruce Willis was a huge movie star when she divorced him and she moved on just fine and didn’t look back. Ashton publicly humiliated her, but still I thought she was stronger than this! Should is falling apart over an idiot like Ashton! Stupid.

  • Lynn

    Demi humiliated herself when she took her relationship with this young man serious, he was only 26 years old. Hopefully, he will not feel he lost out on many years when he should be discovering himself, not playing house with an older woman, to whom, he was the same age as her daughters, geez, there is no one to blame but Demi…

  • believe

    Maybe the hospital will tell her it is ok, another young boy will be coming along soon. Sad! She is old enough to handle this so much better. She has three daughters. She needs to set a good example for once.

    @Lynn:

    Do you write this ignorant trash when men are with women half their ages – you sound like a chauvinist male or a self hating women.

    Maybe you need the professional help to learn to love yourself

  • jacqueline

    So this chick Mayra Dias Gomes (she works on E!) says it’s all Ashton’s fault. He kept cheating on Demi and one day she couldn’t take it anymore, freaked out, got divorced and now this.

  • wren

    Accept getting older and all the freedom that brings. When you prison yourself by conforming to artificial standards, you behave stupidly and people make fun of you. Learn to live and embrace life in all its chapters. Took me awhile, but it’s good now.

  • Why

    Why are Hollywood so called “Empowered Females” so embarassing?

  • ellie’

    Love is Love no matter what age..The difference between you and
    them is your not in the spotlight and you don’t get humiliated by the whole world..Everyone should work on there relationship..these days are crazy..a marriage today to most mean sh*t..
    I only could imagine what you morons do over someone you love..Oh pray tell it never happened to one of you…

  • Jan Lisman

    Old cow. Nobody wants to fu*k her.

  • nina

    wow so much hate, why? Always women’s fault, unbelievable!!!
    he’s a cheater, young or not, he was MARRIED! that’s it!

    Hope nothing like that happen to you haters because it’s so easy to talk, and more behind a computer

    Good that she is finally getting help- probably addicted to diet pills- she looks very bad

  • Screech Hater

    I give up…..Who had the Demi square in the celebrity OD pool?

  • yep

    I hope Demi gets the help she needs. Sometimes like the song “we look for love in all the wrong places”. It’s ok Demi, forgive yourself and move forward.

    *Broken Hearted Me*

    Every now and then i cry
    Every night you keep stayin on my mind
    All my friends say i’ll survive
    It just take time
    CHORUS
    But i don’t think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No i don’t see how it can if its broken all apart
    A million miracles could never stop the pain
    Or put all the pieces together again
    No i don’t think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No i don’t see how it can while we are still apart
    And when you hear this song
    I hope that you will see
    That time won’t heal a broken hearted me

    Every day is just the same
    Playin games,different lovers,different name
    They keep sayin’ i’ll survive
    It just take time
    CHORUS
    Time won’t heal a broken – hearted me

    Demi,move on honey,it’s just a d**k!

  • random

    There is ageism in Hollywood, but there are several women over 40 on high profile television shows. Maybe the problem with Demi’s age is she is fighting it tooth and nail. Acceptance would have worked better. And the age difference was probably just too much overall. We all get older and it would be much more empowering if she didn’t result to abuse as a cry for help. It’s kind of sad and embarrassing for anyone, i.e., Charlie Sheen.

  • Mark

    @Gossipgirl:

    Hollywood has use for all ages … when young and fresh, they play ingenues, when middle-aged, they play mums, when older, they play grandmothers or older women with character … there are many in Hollywood who fall into all these categories. Yes, the world of fashion and HW is obsessed with the young, even airbrushing models who are teens! The problem most times is when ageing women try to hold on to their youth, by whatever means available to them, in particular various cosmetic procedures. It is fine to keep one’s looks as good as possible, but there comes a time for all of us when we need to realise we are moving into different phases of our lives, and to accept the maturity and wisdom and character that comes with getting older. One can’t keep the ageing process at bay forever and most times, when people do, it simply makes them look weird; that which makes it distracting when they are acting in a film.

    I also feel the odds of this marriage lasting with such a huge age difference were rather low at the outset.

    Nevertheless, I have compassion for Demi and hope she is able to recover and become stronger and healthier.

    @hilda:

    You don’t know what other issues the woman is going through. You stupid woman. Some of you women/men are just awful. Would you be saying such ugly things if it were a member of your families. Some of you are just plain hateful!

    Wishing you well Demi.

  • Sheila

    It’s all bull, “exhaustion” is just a PR’s spin on the word “overdose”. They think the public is stupid. Why is she so exhausted, she barely works (she’s made what, 1 or 2 movies in past couple of years?!!) and has tons of money (so unlike most women, she has no worries after a split) and has all the time in the world to rest, yet she is “exhausted”. Demi, we see it for what is it, OD.

  • http://bit.ly/wnjJKK I Mean What

    Last November I wrote a piece on Cougar Fatigue. Maybe this recent blow situation is a residual effect of that phenomenon and rather than really having done actual blow, she realizes that, “My life blows” http://bit.ly/wnjJKK

  • al

    attention seeking. why can’t she just lay low for a while instead of causing a big stir with this crap. ah well

  • CNS

    What’s worse, she turns 50 this year!!! I mean come on!!!

  • Be real

    @hiccup2:
    Ashton Lutcher, I do not care for him one way or ano0ther because he shpould have been an adult, a man, and jsut say he wanted out. File for divorce. Case closed.
    He should have made her file first by a deadline and if not, then he would.
    Cheating arou nd like he did with pictures of those pieces of trash was not cool.

    HOWEVER, Ashton gets a bad rap here.
    Bruce Willis dumped Demi after amrriage, and with three lil kids.
    Bruce palyed on her alledgy or dumped her in order to paly around.
    HE is just as bad or worst then Bruce Willis.

    BTW, Bruce is like 58 and his lil 33 yr. wifey are expecting their first child$$$$$$$$.

  • Be real

    Demi Moore’s friend called paramedics Monday night after the actress inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide … TMZ has learned.

    Sources tell TMZ … one of Demi’s friends who was at her home told emergency workers Demi was doing whip-its. A whip-it is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant.

    The friend said she became upset when Demi had a reaction to a whip-it and lapsed into semi-consciousness.

    It appears Demi had symptoms of a seizure — after inhaling the nitrous.

    A whip-it is not a common drug among people of Demi’s age and social status. It’s typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill.

  • Tragic

    @Mlllllle:

    I think she saw her X on Two and Half Men sleeping with the old mother and freaked out, probably took it as an isult and pushed her over the edge.

  • SS

    Demi is a wonderful actor, hope she bounces back quickly.

  • Joann

    @Blue:

    Interesting, your choice of words: “old woman” and “younger man”, but “older man” and “young woman”. So, women get “old”, but men only get…old-ER? Interesting…

  • Joann

    @Be real:

    You know, it’s one thing to speculate. But, my God…you think you’ve got all the answers, eh? You think you’ve got her all figured out? Him, too? Yeah, maybe not…
