The Brilliant Beautiful Bipolar Amy Winehouse Finally At Peace



When singer Amy Winehouse rose to the to top of  the music scene she was charming and adorable, beautiful and  incredibly talented. She knew how to sell herself with her beehive doo and cat like painted eyes which was inspired from her fascination with the girl groups of the 60’s.

Before she made it big she had a more natural fresh faced look.   A video of her speaking about her favorite artists and her work showed she was arm and pleasant and extremely self confident as you can se/

Year after year as she performed she became more beautiful and more radiant.

When she did her Rehab video, she was at her peak as you can see in the above photo. It is a shame that she did not do the opposite of what the lyrics in the song suggested and “go to rehab” and stay there until she could function properly.

Amy w. She was quoted as saying that she did not like fame or seek it, She said she was a musician.

But she got fame sought her out as you can see by the crowd at the Glastonbury event . The adulation and the public scrutiny was too much to bear. She began to self destruct.

She began drinking and drugging.

Her marriage to husband Blake Civil Felder may have fueled her drug  addiction. Here we see a zoned out Amy and Blake trying to feed her a pill of some sort off of the tip of his tongue.

Amy’s relationship with husband  Blake ended badly in violence  and in a divorce.

She had several bouts in reahab and stated that she was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. She also stated in the press that she rrefused to take any drugs to treat the condition.

In one very poignant interview she said I am my own worst enemy, The interviewer tried to correct her and said you mean you are your won worst critic. Amy looked at him and said, no I am my own worst enemy.

Amy hanging out with musician Peter Doherty of the group Babyshambles and doing drugs with him proved she was right- that she was indeed her own worst enemy. She admitted to drinking a lot . here was no doubt that she was taking drugs as it was captured on a video on youtube.

From the looks if this photo with the sores on her face  she may very well have been doing meth.She also got extremely thin.

Her face broke out and some of her teeth fell out as a result of the drugs. She smoked and drank in an attempt to medicate herself and to deal with emotional pain she was experiencing.

She ended up in the hospital on several occasions  which may have been drug related. She tried to go out n the road again and was met with boos and hisses in Serbia and other countries when she just stood on state and didn’t sing. her backup singers had to take over.

Whether it was the extreme embarrassment of being booed off a stage, being overwhelmed by performing, not wanting to do it anymore, her heartbreak over Blake, being so severely addicted she couldn’t cope, Amy either did herself in purposely or accidentally.

If Amy would have stopped taking drugs to medicate her  and started to  take  bipolar medication to mediate her , she may be  still be alive.

Her father Mitch was very supportive of her throughout her life and throughout her career, It is ironic that his daughter died the day he was to make his singing debut in NYC. As soon as he found out, he rushed home.

My heart goes out to Amy’s dad and mom and to the rest of her family. Her short life inspired so many with her  music.  It also  serves as a huge lesson to young people that drugs can kill. RIP Amy!


Toxic Father Michael Lohan Claims Attack the Night Before He Stalks Lindsay at Courthouse, While Lindsay Speeds Away From Him

The good news about Lindsay being in Betty Ford until January is that she won’t have  to worry about her  Toxic father  Michael stalking her like he did at the courthouse the day she was sentenced to rehab by Judge Elden Fox.

Lindsay arrived looking  professional in a chic black suit with her hair pulled back in a pony tail. Trailing begin her  was her enabling   manager mother wearing essentially the same outfit with her hair pulled back in a pony tail as well.

Lindsay seemed happy and in good spirits upon her arrival at the courthouse in Beverly Hills. Her mom was there to support her . Lindsay looked back at her  mom and smiled as   she was several steps ahead of her.  She then  faced straight  ahead, making her way towards the elevator to the third floor to the Judge Fox’s chambers.

Suddenly some high  drama happened. As she  took a few steps  past the  the metal detector,  she turned her head to the left as  soon as she heard  her name being called. She looked and it was the one person she was not interested in seeing. It was her estranged Toxic father, Michael Lohan.  He promptly gave  her a thumbs up sign.

She immediately turned  away and  ignored  him as she sped up her walk towards the elevator . This is the last thing she needed. Michael was the last person she needed to see with everything else that was on her mind.

Dina didn’t notice what happened. Perhaps if she did, she would have enforced her restraining order and had him arrested on the spot.

Poor Lindsay has so much to deal with just getting past her withdrawal symptoms and dealing with trying to be sober.  Seeing Michael so unexpectedly,  after she repeatedly told him to get out of her life is not helping her. In fact it is hurting her. If Michael claims he loves Lindsay so much he needs to leave her alone and get out of her life. She has unplugged from him and does not want hm around her because he is TOXIC! He needs to get that and respect her wishes.

But he is not taking her NO for an answer. This is very disturbing. Michael cannot be trusted. A day before her sentencing Michael claimed that he would no longer be discussing Lindsay publicly. But as soon as she was sentenced he managed to speak to a New Zealand radio station and yap about Lindsay. That illustrates that this man cannot keep his word an has no respect for his daughter or her privacy.

His urge to be famous and to be the star seems much greater a pull for him  than his respect for his own daughter.

It seems that he can’t leave her alone because  he loves the attention and appears to love  himself a whole lot more than he loves and respects Lindsay in my view.

Just the night before Lindsay had to go to court, Michael claimed he was attacked by a man with a pen knife as he  exited his car was going to get cigarettes.  Pleeeez! Look at his alleged wounds. These are not defensive wounds. To me these  superficial wounds are too precise on his neck to be the act of a random attacker.They look  too parallel to one another to look like random wounds. Did Michael put them there?  Did he cut himself in this organized fashion to once again bring attention to himself? Did he call the police and file a false report? Did he refuse medical help because he really knew what he was doing? Was this once again one of his ways to manipulate the press and keep his name out there?

These wounds are not jagged as you would think they would be if someone was moving  and allegedly fighting back as Michael said he was after being attacked. The straight line slices  are to close to one another.  They don’t make sense to me.  If someone came around from the back  of him as he said, why would they put two straight line superficial  slices the side of his neck?  Why wouldn’t they slice the front of his neck at his throat is they were out to attack and kill him?  That would seem to make more sense. And why would they use a tiny insignificant  pen knife?  Why wouldn’t they use a larger knife if they were really  out to hurt him or kill him? If a person is out to attack you it seems they would use a more substantial weapon than a pen knife that one puts on a key chain.

Also what did Michael do to stimulate the attack?  Since nothing happens in a vacuum, did he cut someone off in traffic or shout obscenities at them to make them want to commit bodily harm towards him?  It is odd that a random person who didnt;t rob him or who had no motive would want to kill him for no reason.

If there was a defensive wound on his arm it would be on the back of his arm not on the front in my view. Did he cut himself on the front of his arm as well ? Why would anyone want to  put a knife to him? The fact that he allegedly refused medical treatment is a red flag as well.

If someone cuts you then you go for treatment just to dress the wound so an infection won’t occur. If  a random stranger cut you with a knife, you would have to wonder how sanitary the knife  was that they used. What if they had used the knife on themselves or on  someone else  who had HIV or HEP C and there was a drop of blood on the knife already.

Lohan  said he allegedly fought off the attacker and the attacker ran away. This was obviously his  attempt  to show how tough and macho  he was. Pleeeze!  If someone is intent on attacking you, they would put up a fight as well. Does this sound kike the plot of a B movie ?

How did the alleged attacker look?  Michael has yet to describe them in detail. What was their motive? While there are a lot of homeless people in Santa Monica out on the streets,  most are gentle and harmless. Their aim is not to slice people up.

As Lindsay gets healthier in her treatment program she will be able to see am even  clearer picture of Michael whom I believe is one of the most TOXIC MEN.

While forgiveness may be a good thing in many cases when one is going through treatment, sometimes  forgiveness of someone who continues to casue havoc on your life is a bad thing. Sometimes the only alternative for such a person is to unplug. This is what Lindsay has been doing up until now and I believe it is one of the healthiest things she has done.

I think he has shown what a TOXIC MAN he is time and time again. She has forgiven him  time after time and he still remains abusive hostile, hateful, disrespectful a complete embarrassment to her.

This behavior can never be forgiven for what he has done to his daughter  in the past and continues to do to her in the present. His stalking her and his  not respecting her wishes is the latest example of why he cannot be trusted or forgiven in my view.

He has shown he has little or no character as he hides behind his Born Again Christian routine and AA rhetoric . Abusing people verbally as we have seen him do on the Insider, the  ugly hatred and ugly verbiage that  usually comes out of his mouth, his Judas behavior of betraying people by taping their personal  conversations from Jon Gosselin to his ex fiance, his constant whining and badmouthing of Dina, his contorted pinched, ferret- like nasty facial expression  and hateful body language makes him one of the most TOXIC MEN out there in my view.  

In my latest book Toxic Men 10 WAys of Identifying, Dealing With and Healing From Men Who Make Your Life Miserable which will be out in a few weeks, I say that you don’t have to forgive. You can unplug and never have anything to do with a Toxic Man like Michael Lohan,  if they continue to make your life miserable.

Lindsay needs to heed this advice and never  deal with Michael so she can heal from all the abuse he created in her life and the havoc  he continues to create in her life. To order a copy of TOXIC MEN click the link below


Both of Lindsay Lohan’s TOXIC PARENTS Are Stifiling Her Recovery Which May End Up Killing Her

 When someone is trying to rehabilitate themselves and stay focused on their recovery,  the last thing they need is the high drama  of their parent blabbing all over the news media. This back and forth between Dina and Michael  and BOTH of their latest TOXIC  shenanigans can destroy everything Lindsay Lohan is doing on Rehab at Betty Ford.


First, Dina allegedly  tries to sneak a photo crew in to Betty Ford to capitalize off of Lindsay’s rehab. Now she is allegedly trying to shop the first interview when Lindsay gets out of rehab. To me this is revolting! This is a sure-fire formula for Lindsay not healing and  not getting on with her life.  At this point in her rehab  process Lindsay has NOTHING to say in any interview.

She has only been in rehab for a few weeks and needs the solitude and focus to deal with her issues and her demons. Two of those demons are her TOXIC parents and what they have  done to her. She has already allegedly mentioned her father in her rehab sessions(which by the wasy should never have been leaked to anyone). But she has yet to address her mother as far as we know.

 I think that her mother is not acting motherly here. If  she was she would never allow her daughter to  any interviews unless her daughter was well  into her  recovery.

This leads me to question whether Dina actually wants Lindsay  to be in recovery.  As a train wreck Dina can go on camera and go into her denial  about Lindsay as she has done repeatedly. She can continue to  say how Lindsay just falls down a lot and how there is nothing wrong with her. She can continue to blame the media and world for Lindsay’s condition.

One of the reasons Dina is possibly fearful of Lindsay’s recovery is that she may end up losing her cash cow after Lindsay is sober enough to see  through the veil  of her substance abuse. Only then will Lindsay see  how Toxic her mother has been to her and how she has ridden on her coat tails. Going clubbing and partying with Lindsay  was clearly riding on  Lindsay’s coat tails. It was inappropriate to say the least.

If Lindsay recovers,  she will no doubt have the mental and emotional wherewithal to fire her manager mother and get a legitimate manager who has her best interest at heart. She needs someone who can really get her  re-focused as an actress and singer. Lindsay has wasted the best years of her life and really needs someone who knows what they are doing to jump-start her career in the right direction.

No matter how talented an actress is , like it or not,   there is an expiration date as far as far as being a  lead actress goes. So Lindsay needs to keep this in mind as she focuses on her rehab and staying on course.


Michael  Lohan is one of the most Toxic Men out there in my view. Anyone who can sell his friends out by taping their conversations and take nude photos of an ex fiancé and sell them is despicable. Lindsay does NOT want to have anything to do with her father and who can blame her?

I think that this is the best thing she has ever done. No one has poisoned Lindsay’s mind against Michael. Instead, Michael has poisoned the well himself by yapping about Lindsay’s every move.

The latest is thatut was reported that  he wants to go off the wagon and feign a drunken state and show up on the steps of Betty Ford.  He wants to enter into Rehab for the sole purpose of seeing Lindsay and joining her in rehab. He said he will stop at nothing to see Lindsay.

I am sure that he will stop at nothing. If he succeeds and sees Lindsay when she is not ready to see him or  she refuses to see him,  the results can be disastrous.

I don’t even want to imagine how disastrous, but rest assured, Lindsay who has been known to act out self destructively in the past, could do it again, Only this time she may possibly do something that would  end her life forever. And yes, Michael would be the catalyst for that.

She obviously has so much rage towards Michael for a number of reasons and rightfully so. If  she is tormented and pushed by Michael  during these delicate times , I will hold Michael completely responsible for whatever disastrous event  happens to her.

If Michael is so concerned about Lindsay’s wellness, he  needs to back off and butt out.  He needs to stop the back and forth with Dina in the media. This is only hurting Lindsay. If there was no Lindsay in the picture, no one would care about Dina or Michael.

But  unfortunately, Michael’s trash talking and butting out will never happen.  By the look of things,  in my view Michael  seems to love himself and  the press a lot more than he loves his daughter .

My book TOXIC MEN comes out next month from Adams Media and speaks about men like Michael Lohan and what can be done to deal with and heal from them. No doubt this book could definitely help Lindsay deal with Michael. If you would ike to order a copy go to\


Soon Judge Eldon Fox will decide Lindsay’s fate.

Will he sentence her to 60 full days in  jail  for violating her  probation?   Will he let her continue on with her rehab at Betty Ford? Will he find her another facility? Will he sentence her to 60 days and then to a year of rehab and then to a halfway house?  Wouldn’t it be great if he issued a gag order pertaining to Lindsay that NEITHER parent could comment on her in any way? Maybe then she could finally heal  in peace .

Cognac Not Cause of Kanye West’s Bad Behavior as Body Language Reflects a Much Deeper Anger Issue

Inner Anger not Cognac casue of Kanye's horrible behavior
Inner Anger not Cognac cause of Kanye's horrible behavior

Now the PR Spin begins as Kanye’s handlers are no doubt trying to attribute Kanye West’s horrific behavior at the VMA’s to Cognac. There is now released video all over the internet showing him taking a swig from a bottle and handing the bottle over to his girlfriend to take a swig.
Now the next step in the PR spinning equation is for “poor” Kanye to say that it was the alcohol that made him do it and that he is talking the first step in AA by admitting he is an alcoholic. Then we will see him in a posh rehab facility where photos of him, (no doubt be leaked to the press) will appear in every tabloid showing how he ‘s now getting sober. Then we will see a fresh faced smiling Kanye emerge 30 days later holding a press conference and appearing on the pages of every celebrity magazine including Newsweek as well as being a guest on Larry King Live where he will no doubt be describing how the alcohol made him do it and how he began drinking to soothe himself after his mother suddenly died after her plastic surgery.

      Please spare us the contrived drama! While the alcohol may have released an inhibition or two, it is not why Kanye got up on the stage and did what he did. It is a lot deeper than having a sip or two or three of Cognac.
The anger and rage that was reflected, was not only in Kanye’s body language in his pointing and angrily shouting to the audience that Beyonce deserved the award. It was also reflected in the hatefulness and anger in his lame attempt to issue a written apology which turned out to further insult and disrespect Taylor Swift. It showed how self consumed he is and how filled with rage and hate he is.
Now we are seeing Kanye’s inner demons up close and personal and we will have no more of it!  People have finally seen who Kanye is underneath the façade. They have clearly seen a mean angry bullying man filled with tremendous rage.
We all know that what happened with the Hurricane Katrina victims was an awful disorganized fiasco. But to accuse any sitting President no matter who he was of “not caring about Black People” was unfair, not to mention disrespectful . It was clearly a red flag as to what was going on in Kanye’s psyche. Another red flag was calling a wife murderer and another bully like OJ Simpson “amazing”. And still another indicator of Kanye’s hate filled and distorted thinking was when he  encouraged everyone to give a break to yet another bully- a brutalizing abuser like Chris Brown.
There is no doubt that Kanye has serious “issues”. If OJ and Chris Brown are men he admires, supports, and defends, then the waters in the well of hatred anger, especially against women, run very deep.
Kanye West needs some very intensive anger management therapy. He needs long term therapy as well, to handle what ails him internally so that he can get on touch with makes him so hateful.

Based on the enormous negative response Kanye has received I don’t believe that he can ever come back from this without major treatment. Some people like Donald Trump and others even believe he should be boycotted for good. People are not going to tolerate this “hater” any longer.

There are too many other artists out there who are just as talented who are “lovers”. The bottom line is – Don’t buy into the PR Spin because that is what it is –Spin and you can’t spin what we all saw with our own eyes. There is nothing you can say that the public will believe as to why Kanye acted so horribly.
