    It is amazing that the other heroin addicts death, partners are not there
    Like say Lea Cory Monteith’s girlfriend and Michelle Williams , Heath
    Ledgers partner, both died of a overdose! Let’s just say that Heroin
    Overdoses are in and let’s celebrate it by going after the dealers when
    Phillip went to the dealers to by the drugs it was his number in the
    Drug dealers phone! Don’t blame the ADDICT ! Scapegoat the dealer
    Instead of Phillip!

    Michelle Williams did attend, and went to PSH families house to pay her respects. Just a shame that a disease like addiction has taken SOOOOO many people. R.I.P.

    @Celebrate overdoses:

    what are you saying…stop being ridiculous. No one blames the addict.
    BUT ultimately it is the addict’s choice. PHS did not have to contact the drug dealer. He had more money and means to attempt to kick his habit. The money he spent on his drug habit, could have gone towards rehab, just saying. He was also using prescription meds. Do we arrest his doctor too? The rich celebs have the means to go out and buy the hard stuff…You’ll never get rid of drug dealers because an addict will get ahold of anything from cleaning fluids to rubbing alcohol.

    Three children have lost their father and the rest of the world have lost a talented man. That’s all that truly matters.

    @Celebrate overdoses: Heath Ledger did not die of heroin overdose. He overdosed on prescription meds he’s taken because of his insomnia and pneumonia. He was Michelle Williams’s EX, not her partner when he died. She doesn’t seem to have learned anything from his death though, seeing as how she’s been jumping from one drug user to another after him. I hope she didn’t leave her current druggie boyfriend babysitting her daughter.

    @sweetness: Sometimes it’s not the money or the means that is required for someone to kick the habit. Some times, it’s something as simple yet complicated as inner strength. Maybe he just couldn’t find it in him to go on any more, maybe he did just a teeny bit of miscalculation, maybe he thought he could handle the amount of drugs he had. PSH did enter rehab, once in his younger years and again, after he relapsed after his 23 year sobriety. NO ONE would just one day decide to shoot up again after being 23 years free and clean of drugs. There must be underlying reasons why he relapsed again. Since we will never know, let’s just all focus on mourning the loss of a great person, and giving respect to the people that are greatly affected by his death.

    He just left his three children and a girlfriend not to mention good acting in movies and at such a young age. Sad.

    Those poor darlings are going to have their fathers last days on archive and all they are going to be wondering is – why none of his so called ‘friends’ helped him.

    At Sundance he flat out admitted to a complete stranger he was relapsing – that was a blatant cry for help. Yet all those who attended were too enamored in themselves and their egos that they couldn’t see a man slowly dying before their eyes.

    Two of them have the gall to call themselves HUMANITARIANS.

    Had it not been for Mel Gibson’s intervention of RDJ downward spiral we would NOT have had Iron-man nor the Avengers – think about that.

    RDJ flat out admitted the only hope for an addict – is intervention.

    They abandoned Hoffman and now an insane, dark and shallow place called Hollywood has just lost one of it’s brightest stars.

    One can’t help wondering about the absurdity and irony of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s funeral, there he was surrounded by all these glamorous photogenic ‘Hollywood friends’ who had come to honor a legend (at a private gathering to boot) and yet in his time of need the actor was literally walking around like a bum, lonely, begging anyone who would listen that he was a ‘junkie’ but to no avail….
