Longtime readers of the blog will know that for some reason I have a fascination with Peaches Geldof. I don't know if it is because of her mom Paula Yates who overdosed on heroin or just the fact that I like her name and her sisters, Pear, and Strawberry. Whatever it is, when I heard that Peaches had been caught on tape buying $400 worth of drugs from Amy Winehouse's dealer, it really made me mad.
Seriously. Peaches has everything going for her. Yes, her mom died, but Bob has always been there for her. I guess I don't understand why she would turn to drugs? She couldn't have any real pressure issues she is dealing with and with her whole mom thing, you would think she would have a built in incentive not to do so. Peaches has always been indignant that she has never used drugs. When a photo of her using a coke inhaler showed up, she said it was a bad angle on a photograph of a cigarette. Well, obviously, she has some serious explaining to do now.
When police arrested the couple who had filmed Amy Winehouse smoking crack, they found the portion where they had sold to Peaches as well. Someone had tried to erase it, but had not managed to remove it completely. Sounds like someone may have paid some blackmail money, but that it didn't work out in the end.
Hopefully this is a huge wake up call from Peaches and she won't end up like Amy. Over the weekend, Mark Ronson gave up trying to record the James Bond theme with Amy because she can't even put two words together. Literally.
