Nikki is doing a bunch of press for the new season of Celebrity Rehab. I am thinking of watching just to see Gary Busey and what the hell he tells everyone. Can you imagine trying to get sober and having Gary Busey rattling off all his Buseyisms at you? You would tell Dr. Drew enough, walk out the door and go get hammered.
You know what debate I would love to see? Dr. Phil and Gary Busey. Just throw out a phrase or a topic and see what the hell they do with each one.
Anyway, back to Nikki. In an interview with US Weekly she says that at times during her Idol run, that even though the group was heavily chaperoned she would buy vodka and sometimes have a drink or two if she was not too tired. Umm, so do lots of people. It is called getting through another miserable day working for the man. Also, if you were so heavily chaperoned how did you manage to go buy the vodka, and drink it every night? I'm glad you are clean and sober, but trying to blame everything on Simon seems like a contradiction of the whole sobriety thing. He could have triggered your lack of self-confidence. I mean you did get beat by Justin after all. I guess I can see why you turned to the bottle. Also, I think she should be thanking Simon because she got another 15 minutes because of him. If he had been sweet and kind to Nikki then she would have still finished third, done nothing since and have no chance to get back on television. Is that going too far? Well, hey she is the one who is blaming her downward spiral on Simon. I think that is kind of going too far.
