8 Reality TV Stars With Drug Problems

We were totally shocked when we saw former “America’s Next Top Model” contest Jael Strauss — who’d appeared on Cycle 8 of the series — would be appearing on a “Dr. Phil” episode devoted to her drug abuse. Since appearing on the series six years ago, Jael’s life has taken a severely downward slide. She’s been addicted to meth, and her family begs her to get help during a harrowing Dr. Phil intervention. Jael hardly looks like the beautiful girl she was just six short years ago — with pockmarked skin and bleached blond locks, she appears much older and worn out than most other 28-year-olds.

We wish her the best and hope that Thursday’s episode of “Dr. Phil” gets her the help she needs. Jael is hardly the only reality TV star to slide into addiction — let’s review…

A "Call Me Maybe" Intervention

Jared’s “Call Me Maybe” addiction has affected the lives of his loved ones negatively in the following ways: He embarrasses them by going into restaurants with pennies and dimes and asking waitresses for kisses, he rips his own jeans to show skin and then steals money to buy new jeans. This spoof of A&E’s “Intervention” proves that any kind of addiction can get out of control, even one to Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe.” Let’s hope that Jared gets the help he needs to stop “Call Me Maybeing.” [Buzzfeed]

Cinderella, she’s got a problem — a sex addiction problem. You wouldn’t think it, with all the crinoline and lace she’s always wearing, but the girl’s got it bad. And it’s time that the rest of her fairytale friends did something about it — so they’ve staged an intervention. But … it’s not going so well. It seems Cinderella is a real attention whore.

You’ve seen one meth head, you’ve seen ‘em all. Ditto for cokeheads, dope fiends, and alcoholics. That’s why A&E’s “Intervention” can get a little stale. Thankfully, there are occasionally people like Allison on the show to remind us, “Wait, you can get addicted to that?” Allison appeared a few seasons ago, but she’s kind of gone down in history as the show’s most memorable addict because of her intense addiction to huffing computer duster which she buys in bulk from Staples. Allison is possibly best known for saying in a singsong-y voice, high on the dust, “I’m walking on sunnnnnshiiiiiiine!” And so am I, every time I watch this episode. (I don’t mean to downplay or make light of the seriousness of Allison’s addiction — I am very glad to hear she is in recovery and doing well.) In a sea of Snookis, Allison makes for the perfect unique reality TV-inspired Halloween costume. Find out how to get her look after the jump! Keep reading »

On “Intervention,” A Young Woman Snorts Drugs With A Tampon Tube

I used to watch A&E’s addiction series, “Intervention,” religiously. After a while, though, I couldn’t take it anymore. I appreciate the struggles of addiction, but the stories are so often so heartbreaking. Watching people in the throes of intense addiction is agonizing. Every once in a while, though, I tune in again. This Monday, I watched an episode featuring Ashley, whose drug-addicted mother handed her over to her aunt and uncle when she was a child. She became addicted to black tar heroin and Xanax after her grandfather died. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.

Girl Talk: How “Intervention” Helped Me To Forgive

I was really young and naïve when I met Christian* at a nightclub. By “young,” I mean 18 and by “naïve,” I mean an inexperienced dater who thought men would only like me for my intelligence.

“Isn’t she beautiful?” Christian asked some other club goers in line. I looked behind me to see where the beautiful girl was. I certainly didn’t think it was me. But he pointed at me again. He was standing in the club’s entryway wearing big, Buddy Holly glasses, black leather pants, and reeking of “teen icon.” Then he smiled – a wide, devilish grin. With one hand, he offered me a lollipop; with the other he held a whiskey on the rocks. In fact, in the four years (on and off) that we were involved, Christian usually had a whiskey on the rocks. It was like his signature accessory. Keep reading »
