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 http://dlisted.com/node/33570 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”.
