Running to Rehab!

Now I've heard everything! After meeting with ABC execs and agreeing to "examine the issues" that lead to his homo-hating ways, Isaiah Washington, in the great tradition of Mel Gibson and taking a cue from scandal-ridden Mark Foley, has decided to enter rehab! REHAB! As in "It's not my fault I'm a hate filled bigot--blame it on the drugs?" even though he appeared perfectly sober when he uttered the F word yet again at the Golden Globe press conference last week. But on closer examination of the press releases about this story, no where does it say that it is drug or alcohol rehab. It just says a "treatment facility" to examine his issues. So what is that exacty? A psych ward?

Why is it that rehab has suddenly become the safe haven for every pathetic, loose-canon celebrity? Gimme a break! Does anyone buy this? And what a disservice it does to those men and women struggling in rehab facilities for legitimate reasons. I guess this is what Washington is paying his team of "crisis management" specialists the big bucks for. Ugh! I feel like throwing up.

It's worse than what you imply. It wasn't Washington's idea to go to rehab; it was ABC that insisted, in order to difuse the controversy. What this implies is not only that washington is unrepentant, but that ABC has discovered the use of rehab to put problematic stars on ice.

You know I've been down on Catholicism lately; but, face it, there was and is something good about a sense of guilt and the concept of confession, repentance, reparation, then forgiveness. Nobody admits to their guilt anymore.

And he'll probably come out of rehab as a gay man.

When I read this, my eyes rolled so much I thought they'd fall out of their sockets.

All these hollow "Mea culpas" just diminish the people who "really" mean it when they apologize.
