    I have never said he was using his rehab for profit that was Oh Dear. My point is he and his people are saying whatever suits them, whether truth or not. Please keep your posters straight. :)
    .
    The point I agree to with Oh Dear is that IF he is using this rehab for PR, shame on him for mocking those have real problems and need real help by belittling the situation.

    Don’t waste your energy, she’s a board bully. She’s not “single” and is “happily married” (yet is here more than most single women… so go figure). It’s turned into her sport, her hobby. That and she knows she can never ever have a chance with him so tries to everyone to “see the light” that Gerry’s not worth anyone’s devotion! It’s classic sour grapes.
    -
    AND that he might have done this so he doesn’t spin out and loose anyone he truly cares for? The possibility something snapped inside of him that sent him, walking or being drug, into the BFC because of that!
    -
    Now out and showing himself she can’t stand his looking so good! Why? She can’t have him. Plus maybe their could be a possibility some one or someone here could! But the only thing certain is it will never be her.

    @ Right?

    What?!!! Oh dear. (sigh) You know what, call me whatever you like, go right ahead. For a moment there I mistakenly credited you with a modicum of intelligence. I apologise I was completely incorrect. You’re far too immature to bother conversing with. Just carrying on with your juvenile comments, knock yourself out.

    @Can’tGetEnough:
    Great press for him! See his likability and respect factors are high out there.
    -
    Gerry is respected more for this than had he ignored it, trust me. Had he let it go and lied more to others, as well as to himself, he’d lose more than he could afford: respect. Respect from friends, family and fans.
    -
    If anything, his true die-hard supporters will spiritually gather around him sending up prayers he can keep clean so he can get to where he wants, a better life building that better world around him with his talents, skill and butts in seats box-office demands! Coriolanus was major! Seeing him with Jessica was great!
    -
    And he’s filled out! A few healthy fiber-filled flax-seed shakes and he’s not so gaunt as the last weeks reflect!!

    @Manny: “Please keep your posters straight. :)”
    I was responding to your comment about the board mommies being out in force and explaining why I’ve thumbed some posts down generally, not yours specifically, though I have thumbed down some of yours. It’s not just board mommies and big fans. I may not think Gerry puts out a public image of a dignified gentleman, but that doesn’t mean it’s normal to keep a record of everything that’s ever been said about him by anyone and try to build cases against him on serious topics like substance abuse and rehab because of assumptions about who and how he is. That is just as obsessive as the people who collect everything that’s said about him because they’re irrationally in love with who they think he is. It’s crazy. The word “denial” keeps coming up. I think that goes both ways. There sure are fans who are in denial about what Gerry does, but there are some other people posting here about him negatively that are very obviously in denial about their own obsession with him. This isn’t normal. A

    Morning Angel… Not up on the wrong side of the bed at all. Trying to have an honest conversation of opinions.
    .
    I guess I’m missing the gist of your comment and why it was launched at me. Why is it negative to question this situation? Why is it negative to share an opinion that apparently others don’t like? Why if things don’t add up is it wrong to say ‘what is going on here?’???
    .
    Even something as inane as should he have shaved his neck seems to be considered tabou to talk about on here today which I find ridiculous…

    @angelsrock:
    “Manny, you seem to have woken on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Why all the negativity? You have stated your opinion. Of course others will disagree and have thier own take on this. None of us here is Gerry Butler or a close friend or relative. We have no idea the nitty gritty details of Gerry’s last few weeks and frankly I don’t need or want to know. He is simply an actor/celebrity that I find lovely. He has obstacles in his life as do we all. No one’s life is perfect. No one!!! He lives in a fishbowl. I would not want that!! Everyone sees things differently as they watch through the glass of his fishbowl. Sometimes that little Gerry fish just wants to hide behind some rocks away from the stares and glares of the fans and the critics.”

    Great post! But she demands perfection. He has personally let her down. She’s like gretchenpc at IMDb when she posted. Same voice exactly. You’d think it was her but it isn’t! I think it’s just for attention… and her love of seeing her own words published instantly? LOL Feel she’s no voice anywhere else?
    -
    As for Gerry? He needs to matter to someone more than for who and what he is. More than just a sex object. And chances are slim in that ‘circle of influence’ and think he’s realized it more last year than ever before.
    -
    He looks great yet we still see that hint of sadness behind his, the color of the sand and the sea, that speak to unspoken longings for acceptance, companionship, and belonging to someone… a woman.
    -
    Oh and word is by way of his Howard Stern interview, his fish isn’t little! But I get it! It appears not being the life of the party for a spell was a good thing!

    @ GFW

    Oh Please. (ROLL EYES) As I am sure you can imagine, I am deeply deeply hurt with a comment like that coming from someone like you. As I write this, the tears are welling up. How insightful of you to know that I am heartbroken because GB never ever, ever, ever, ever made inappropriate advances towards me. And oh how that cut me so to the quick. Gosh, I can’t believe how you know so much about me.( SNIFF -DEEP DEEP DEEP SIGH)

    From a lurker Says:

    I’m not up to this board’s speed to post here but I thumb comments up and down based on how I see them and this is serious enough that I think I should say why. Addiction is a very serious issue. I’ve had a lot of personal experience with it. I’ve not been the addict but many of my close relationships with family and friends have been plagued by it. I’m offended by people accusing Gerry Butler of using a rehab story for publicity without absolute proof that what they’re saying is true. People speculating and making assumptions about why people go to rehab is exactly why some people who really need to go to rehab don’t. I think if someone in need of help were reading the comments on this thread, they’d be discouraged from seeking it. On the other hand, I think it really helps some people when they see celebrities admit they have a problem and that they made the choice to get help, and then see them turn up places afterwords looking healthy and well. It helps counter the stigma and makes people who need help realize that needing help doesn’t necessarily mean they’re weak. Even if there’s more to Gerry’s story than the eye can see, it doesn’t serve anyone to guess about it and tear it down with empty theories. So that’s why I thumbed posts down. I think some of the righteous indignation of some of the posters accusing Gerry of exploitation without any proof is a load of BS. They’re being selfish, which I guess is fine, but admit it. Don’t claim to be standing up for those struggling with addiction when all you’re doing is promoting the stigma and trying to kill off the potential benefits of this story because of some twisted joy you take in wanting Gerry to look bad.

    @GFW: its quite clear to see GFW you really do not have a life, very sad you’re always on here. Maybe you should try and date, it might be best. I will pray for your lonely existance to be full and vibrant. Just checking in. Take good care.

    @GFW:

    GFW you don’t know me at all. I’m not demanding perfection, that’s your department, I was making an observation. Once again for you in the short bus… Why when you are going to all the trouble to be fitted and styled for a tux, get your hair dyed and coiffed, makeup applied, why not take 5 and shave the neck??? Simple question with no underlying anything. I’m not the only that mentioned it but yet you seem to feel it is me you have to make an issue out of it.

    Manny Says:

    @From a lurker:
    .
    I find your theory flawed.
    .
    Hypothetically… If an addict was watching this whole thing with Butler what would he perceive? Gerry didn’t admit he needed help until TMZ reported he was in rehab. So unless the addict watching was a celebrity no one would care or know. Gerry’s PR admitted in a statement that he had sought treatment for the past three weeks for painkillers/cocaine abuse at the Betty Ford Center and was now healthy. So now the addict looks at that and thinks, three weeks, I can do that and be well enough to attend parties where drug abuse occurs regularly because after 3 weeks Gerry Butler was healthy and cured.
    .
    Isn’t that a shame? When even the lowly of health care professionals know that it is not a complete rehab and the last thing an addict should do 24 hours out of rehab is go back to the places and people you associated with prior to rehab, how can you say that is a good example? That is perpetuating a myth.
    .
    Rehab for Butler’s “confirmed” ailments would mean a detox period lasting weeks to a month easily. Three weeks and he is cured of his addiction is not remotely realistic and does addicts who look to that as an example a great disservice. Rehab isn’t just 3 weeks. If the folks in your life are rehabbing for three weeks or less, how many times are they going back to rehab? Because one goes with the other.
    .
    Mind you I have never said he was doing this profit but I believe that he is minimizing the serious of the disease and the steps to sobriety by his example and it does make me suspect that he went and dried out not rehabbed.

    GB’s PR never confirmed how long he was in rehab, nor did they confirm what he was in for.

    Manny I find your heifer and short bus comments today offensive, please discuss away, but is it necessary to offend others?

    Not all of Butler’s fans are obese and special needs.

    I think its unkind and hurtful. Perhaps your thumbs is not so much on what you are saying but how you are saying it?

    according to this articel he
    “was spotted hanging out with funnyman Jason Bateman most of the night.”
    .
    Hardly the drugged out of his mind, crazy partier they all want to turn him into.

    And, TMZ had backed away from the coke issue. Hasn’t mentioned it again. Is it possible TMZ embelished the rehab with the coke issue?

    You can think whatever you like about my theory. I believe that the true myth here is that you know the first thing about Gerry Butler’s substance abuse issues, the course of treatment that he sought, the course of treatment that his condition required, and why he came forward about it. I don’t know anything about it myself. All I know is what his representative has stated, and I would not presume to be more informed or more qualified to assess his condition and state his motives, and it does not help anyone else for others to do so.
    *
    You’re just taking speculation, stating it as truth, and posting like an armchair psychologist who has evaluated him and is privy to what has transpired when you have not and are not. That’s fine if that’s your idea of fun. But don’t claim that your horse hockey is intended to support those struggling with addiction. Addiction is a hard reality. Your rootless theories, speculation, and guesses about a man you don’t know and a situation that you’re not close to does nothing to support the people dealing with those hard realities for all the reasons that I said.

    @Stormyweather:
    “You sure know a lot about his personal friends and life for someone who has lost all respect for him. But keep up the lust and the obsession you have for him locked safely back in the closet. We understand why you have to slag him even if you don’t.”
    .
    She’d do him in a heartbeat if she could. Because she can’t have him she acts like this. It’s so obvious that these are angry jealous beetches in heat.

    I still believe something fish is going on with the rehab story, but I am glad to see him looking better than he has recently. Of course, he cleans up well when he wants to and you can see he was airbrushed to the max which makes him look like he had a nip/tuck, but I don’t think he did anything to his face other than possible botox. I wish him well in his continues sobriety, but still feel he needs to get away from the Hollywood party lifestyle.

    @ Emma – comment #57

    So nice to see there are more people with the same nickname… :-)

    I had a few rough nights these past few days – meditating on the immortality of the soul and such – but I do not remember waking up, sitting at my computer and writing such a comment. I try to keep my opinions on how people look to myself. :-)

    On a different thread, I was noticing how Betty Ford treatments cost about as much as a small apartment in my part of the world – they’re effective, too, since GB is out there running (pain’s gone, I suppose!). Miraculous! :-)

    He was looking good at whatever those parties were, don’t know what to say about the fact he is eating alone… I prefer it that way, especially when I want to celebrate something important to me.

    Hope y’all have a great day, evening, night or morning, depending on where you are on this beautiful Earth!
