So, are your proud of me? I managed to finally pull myself away from the Eva Mendes video just long enough to post something about Eva Mendes. Apparently she gave an interview to Parade. I'm still amazed that more stars don't want to always give interviews to Parade, because honestly, I think that is the one portion of a Sunday paper that almost everyone in a family reads.
Anyway, in the interview she says that she does not want to get into the specifics of why she went to rehab because she doesn't want her mom to get upset. She figures that if she doesn't confirm or deny anything that somehow that will help her mom. She in turn also is encouraging bloggers and tabloids to speculate all we wants about why she went into rehab and that she doesn't really care what we say.
"There are different stories about why I decided to get help for myself. People can speculate all they want. I'm not going to clear up the misconceptions. I have to think of the pain it might bring my mother."
Well, as nice as it is to say that she went in to rehab because Xenu came to earth, tied her down, injected her with heroin and made her watch Days Of Thunder repeatedly it also seems like with what she is doing that she is probably causing her mom more pain than if she actually just spilled.
What is a mom to think when her own kid won't say why she went to rehab and is so awful that it will crush her mother. To me that encourages worse speculation not only by us, but also her mom. Was it drugs, was it a pregnancy that went wrong? If it is your mother, what could possibly crush her? I doubt that getting addicted to Vicodin is really going to break her mom's heart. Actually I think any of the prescription drugs are probably bad, but are not going to break the heart of mom. I think we can eliminate pot from the discussion also. Coke or heroin? That would probably break mom's heart. Meth or crack? Eva was never that skinny so we can rule that out.
What about like doing drugs and the drugs caused you to have a miscarriage or something. That would necessitate a trip to rehab and it would probably break mom's heart if you hadn't told her you were pregnant.
See? This is why speculating and letting tabloids and bloggers license to do so. If I can come up with this, what is mom thinking?
