Image the episode where the main character gets dial up internet.

That is a huge asshole comment about her being just another junkie. I want to ban you just for that comment

I said its sad to see someone succumb to their addiction. Yes it's I'm the news because she's famous but that doesn't make it any more sad than those on the dtes. Hopefully though with her and Cory monteith this will bring more awareness and possible resources to help those avoid and overcome addition

Meh, I kinda have to agree with Dino. I know people who have or had addictions and the shit they did to get their next fix was pretty brutal. I have no love for people who end up addicted to drugs, whether it was intentional or not. Two of my friends battled cocaine addictions and while they managed to clean themselves up, I wouldn't have felt much in the way of remorse if they had ended up dying as a result. I'd have felt bad for their families and friends, sure, but not them. They did it to themselves, after all. Even if it was an attempt to "escape" something, there are a million other better ways of doing that without even touching drugs or alcohol.

As for some random celebrity, whether they're A-List or not, I could care less. It shouldn't have to come to some famous person dying of a specific disease or addiction for people to realize that there's a problem.

You have obviously missed my point. Why dedicate a thread, a page in a gossip magazine, a headline on a website, and a "breaking news" story on tv for some person who died from drugs and/or alcohol. It happens every day. It is happening now. Why sensationalize it? These people have more money than most and can afford the best therapy and rehabs. The double standard is pathetic.

If I had asked you 3 days ago what the real name of Eric Foreman's sister was, you would have no clue.

There are dozens of asshole comments here everyday.

If you think my opinion is worth a ban, ban me then....stop threatening it.

Holy smokes, calm down woman.

I think everyone regardless of status deserve to be remembered when they pass away. Unfortunately for people in DTES and anybody for that matter, is not known by the general public. If they have a recognition in your community, I'm sure they'll be on the community newpaper.

TO YOU, she may just be another junkie, supporting actress, extra, etc. But there are people might have loved her for her role in TV shows and whatever she appears on.

I think you're having a bad day.
