Well that’s a carefree way of looking at it.

Am sure you’ve heard by now – Melanie Griffith has checked into rehab, the same facility where Lindsay Lohan and Kirsten Dunst and Eva Mendes received treatment. According to her rep:

"She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."

Makes it sound like a pap smear.

As you know, publicists are known to sugarcoat situations. In this case, word on the street is that Antonio Banderas gave her an ultimatum, telling her to get clean or he would leave. You’ll recall he also, a few years ago, ordered her to ease up on the plastic surgery.

Is addiction sad smut? Of course.

But it’s something else at play here. There’s a difference between “privacy please, period” and “I don’t really have a problem, I’m just getting a check up”.
