Courtney Love Update

A few days ago, after watching the Pamela Anderson roast on Comedy Central, I wrote this:

There were too many comics reading their material. There was too much that wasn’t funny. And, if Courtney Love has really been off drugs for a year… wow, it’s just very sad.

It was sad… tragic to see. A train wreck with legs.

I have read some of Courtney Love’s writing, including a piece she wrote for Salon, aimed at a music industry audience. She’s really bright and well spoken. That only served to make her appearance more painful to watch.

Tonight I read this:

Tearful Courtney Love ordered into rehab facility

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A judge ordered a tearful Courtney Love into an in-patient substance abuse facility on Friday after the troubled rock singer admitted to violating the terms of her probation by using drugs.

Love broke down in quiet sobs as Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin warned that he was prepared to send her to jail because he felt she needed “to hit rock bottom” before she was ready to overcome her drug addiction.

The fact she tried to fool everyone only put off the inevitable.

I really wish her well. I know what she faces won’t be easy and she’s shown in the past, she’s capable of failure.
