@krista:
So true !
LOL
Rehad goes with botox !!

@good grief:
.
ITAWY. *standing and applauding* BTW you should take a stroll over the WO like we did last night and read their letters of support. Not only will Butler be fighting his addiction issues but after reading those “letters” he will be fighting bulimia also.
.
BTW thanks to all the fun girlies for a helluva Oscar party. I have never laughed as hard or enjoyed virtual shenanigans so much. ♥

Says an old heifer herself…

@bystander:

Moira will always see him as her ideal man. She thought he looked great and having fun according to her tweets at the time of this photo…

So don’t expect any realistic view from her.

Not surprised at all at the lack of letters of support on WO. Their buzz word is “unconditional” which is a keyword for enabling. Tough love is what he needs and they just can’t grasp that. I wonder what their letters of support will mean when he is a on a slab in a morgue somewhere due to an overdose. I mean seriously the dude has already been taken by ambulance for “over indulging” in London once. But alas their “unconditional” blindness can’t see clearly what is in front of their faces IMO.
.
Butler isn’t taking his sobriety seriously so why should we???

@Paisley:
.
Normally I don’t comment on your posts, but I don’t agree with you. Addiction isn’t a “stumble” and that is extremely naive on your part. A thought process like that is definitely not an effort to support sobriety IMO. But I still adore you…

@Please:

You really need to grow up. A difference of opinion is not jealousy. I believe your desire to protect Gerry is making you irrational. What are you 12???

WTF is wrong with Oh Dear @ 02/27/2012 at 10:12 am

@Oh dear 1: “What I have a massive, massive problem with, is GB and his management using this issue of drugs and rehab as form of emotional PR manipulation to get even more self promotion and ultimately even more cash. ”
.
But how do you know that’s what he’s doing? This seems to be a bunch of conjecture by a bunch of people who spend their time following every tweet, blog post, tabloid report, and such about Gerard Butler. People who do that with regard to an actor don’t have a healthy perspective when it comes to him in the first place, and nor do people who believe that every tweet about him and every tabloid report about any celebrity is true.
I could get on twitter right now and say that I saw Gerard Butler walking down Santa Monica Blvd. carrying something that looked like a bottle in a brown bag or trying to hide something in a jacket pocket, and the way that I’m reading people’s comments here, some would start posting “a-HA! I was right about him!” using my false tweet as proof. How crazy is that?
It’s one thing when the question is whether he’s dating so-and-so. It’s a whole other when it’s addiction and rehab. It is a very serious subject. There’s a huge stigma attached to rehab and a lot of people refuse to go exactly because they’re afraid of what people will assume to be true about them for going. People like you perpetuate that stigma.
And for what? Why? Who is Gerard Butler to you that you should be so upset and “kick off big time” over supposition? Are you just engaging in activism? Over Gerard Butler, his substance abuse issues, and what you think it all means? Really?
Laugh at him because you think the stories of his social life are funny. Criticize his acting. Say you don’t understand why people think he’s hot. That’s all surface level stuff. But “kicking off big time” against him on a moral level about things you can’t even be certain are true? Don’t you think you’re taking him way too seriously and what he does too personally?
.
Even if you are proved 100% right, what would you think you’ve accomplished? “a-HA! I was right about Gerard Butler”? If you went around saying that offline to people on the street with all the righteous vigor that you’re arguing about him online, what do you think the reaction would be? Do you think they would pat you on the back or think you’re a bit mental? Step back and get your bearings.

@Manny: OMG, when was that pic taken? He looks like s/hit to be honest.

@Paisley:
.
You know Paisley Gerry isn’t in the position of stumbling because he hasn’t approached correcting his problem until now. This isn’t a stumble in his sobriety because he hasn’t embraced or acknowledged sobriety until now. That is the rub in your reasoning for me.
.
@Oh dear 1:
.
I’m glad you reposted your post. You put so articulately what I’m thinking. What is surprising to me is his diehard fans reaction. If I was them I would be p!ssed. If he can be deceitful in claiming to be sober all these years, is he lying about how he feels about them? Also making light of rehab and addiction is insulting to those that indeed suffer and struggle with it on a daily basis.
.
I hate to be the Dora Downer but what can we believe that comes out of his mouth? He went to “rehab” and the next day is seen and photographed in Blow Central, Malibu. Then he goes to a HW party that night and the next night… He is all better is a crock of sh!t or his PR team is not being honest what he is being treated for. Did they throw out the painkiller facade because he was in for sex addiction? What can we believe???

@Manny. I want to se “WO” , what is the abbreviation for WO ? Do you have a link :-)

@Emma:
.
That was last year when he dropped a bunch of weight in no time at all. At the time I wrote that I was worried he was sick. And yes I was being naive believing his sober lifestyle to be real…

@me:

I have to laugh that “weiner” is part of their web address… Awwww Dianne…

WTF?! He was at the parties?! Geez. Would it have killed him to miss them ONE single year? Was he afraid that he was going to miss some hot hookups or what? I can’t *believe* this guy. He just announced that he was leaving REHAB for goodness’ sake. Why announce it in the first place at all? Does GB and his team realize that it looks a wee bit weird that he’s back on the party scene (I don’t care that it’s the Oscars, it’s still a party) after such an announcement? Go back to mum in Scotland for a while instead. :(

A man of warmth and wisdom.

@Manny: @Paisley:

I think what constitutes a stumble is all relative to your own life experiences. What constitutes a stumble to some might be a massive thing for others. I think if you are a recovering addict or you have any other kind of compulsive behaviours, falling off the wagon once might be considered a stumble, if you only fall off the wagon once, it’s pretty good going.
-
I’ve never had a substance abuse issue, I’ve had family members that have but I seIf h*rmed, for about 15 years. I think if every time I’d fallen back into a h*rming pattern people treated it like a massive thing, I think it would have me worse, I would have seen it as massive failure on my part, it would have made me feel sh*t about myself, which is when I reach for the razors, It would have been a very viscous circle, but because it was treated like a ‘stumble’ it made me realise I could get over it.
-
Everyone is going to have a different opinion of this situation but why people need to state their opinion and then qualify it by saying anyone that disagrees with them is in denial or jealous or calling them delusional is pointless and childish. Is it not possible that people can just see things from a different perspective? I think the worse people on here though are the ones that seem to be revelling in this and take pleasure in mocking those that are supporting GB, even if some of that support is somewhat naive.
-
As for the situation with GB I don’t know what his addiction issues are, that’s irrelevant to me and none of my business, I don’t know what path his rehab is taking, I’d like to think he is continuing his recovery with some form of out patient treatment but attending Oscar parties? Bad move, both from a health and PR perspective.

Super happy to see Gerry out and about . He looks Health and rested and Beautiful .

Che bello!

@ Manny 

Thank you.  I hope you had a great  Oscars do last night.

@wtf is wrong with Oh dear
 
oh my day woman. You have totally miss the point – big time. My perspective is completely on point. Yours… Well.   Once again this is an entertainment news website where people pass comment -good,  bad or indifferent about people who are crave  for attention and want to be paid ridiculous amounts of money for it.  ( HW stars).  Lord knows, I understand  there is stigma to rehab, but according to your perspective that makes it more or less ok  for Butler and his management to trivialise rehab to  get more cash. All righty then. You are entitled to your opinion. If the man ends up in a drug addled stupor choking on his own vomit that’s  his prerogative, and of course if I feel like it I will  pass comment on it on  this  ENTERTAINMENT NEWS WEBSITE.   Can you grasp the concept now.

Not just a river @ 02/27/2012 at 11:04 am

I have been dumbfounded by the level of denial on these recent threads. Every post that looks realistically at the evidence, the timeline, and what is basically out there for all to see, is getting persistently thumbed down. The loving phannies are rushing to the defense of their little boy against the mean old meannies. Can you not see that you have been had? Can you possibly be so blind to his decline the last couple of years? He is an addict. He has never denied his addictive personality. What he did, was position himself as a reformed drinker. And we all took that to mean he was sober. But he is not. Look up the symptoms of cocaine use. There it is. We may never know what or who pushed him into a brief rehab stint, but I’m sure this story will continue to play out. He can be shined up for the red carpet, but under the designer duds and the spray tan he is in real trouble, and trying to silence those that see it does him no good.

Looks like Daniel bought back his soul from the Devil itself.

lol Seriously! Righteously “kicking off” about Gerard Butler? About GERARD BUTLER? Ha! There are kids in shelters that really need help, but she’s going to save the world from the immoral Gerard Butler. What a freak.
@niknoks: ” I don’t know what path his rehab is taking, ”
-
Why are people assuming there’s only one way to do rehab and he’s doing it the wrong way? One of my parents had surgery after long term pain for an injury and was on painkillers for a long time. When she starting healing well from the surgery and needed to get off the painkillers she found it hard, so she went to rehab for a couple of weeks to combine continued physical therapy with winding down drug intake. She was then able to go home and work with a therapist in her house. If Gerard Butler’s issues are more physical than psychological, couldn’t he be doing the same type of thing? He may have more serious issues, I don’t know, just saying it’s possible and it’s a bit nutty for people to assume they know what’s up.
-
Who cares really. It’s his business. What’s our business is whether he’s getting the therapy he needs to stop doing sucky movies like the Booty Hunter.

Angelina's Right Leg @ 02/27/2012 at 11:22 am

Well, he looks good but it would have been better if he had stayed at home this year.
Can’t believe it’s already a year since the Selita Ebanks rumors. Time flies.

@ Right?

If you want really want to comment about about kids in shelters on an ents website go right ahead, but I suggest you might perhaps get more incisive and indepth comments on relevant charity or a current affairs websites. Idiot.

Feel Gerry helped the clinic help him because he wanted a fresh start. Never underestimate this man’s will-power or self-control. In the end, while it was the incorrect way, the stimulating enhancement was for to counter the dulling created by the painkillers! Not making excuses as their are better solutions.
-
Also feel the ‘crew’ and ‘extras’ on the set created an party atmosphere that enabled him and he let it. The power of the positive no is still a work in progress! “Please be gentle I’m still learning.” That said, something triggered this check-in. He did it for someone, himself firstly. But another (and others) as well.
-
But anyone with two eyes can see this man clearly is facing the right direction… forward. I have faith in him. Always have, but have even more now!
