There really is no way anymore that I can read or type the word rehab without thinking of the Amy Winehouse song. Well, presumably Melanie Griffith didn't tell Antonio Banderas, "no, no, no" because she has checked herself into rehab and will be there for the foreseeable future.
Oh, this isn't because she is addicted to any type of drug or dependent on alcohol or anything like that. Nope. According to what is possibly the best spin on rehab ever, her spokesperson said, "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."
Much like the rest of us who go to the doctor once a year and the dentist twice a yer, Melanie has planned all this in advance. It is probably like clockwork. Next August while her family vacations somewhere, Melanie will once again check into rehab. Last year it was in one place and this year it is in Utah. Some people like to stay at all the golf resorts in the world and Melanie has a goal to stay at all the rehab facilities in the world. "Oooh, this one has yoga during the meetings. Is that downward facing dog? Hi, I'm Melanie and I'm an alcoholic."
Last year Melanie and her daughter Dakota Johnson tried this as a mother daughter event to spend some quality time together and reinforce their commitment to being a great family, but Dakota didn't need that reinforcement this year so Melanie is on her own. Maybe she could give Ryan O'Neal a call. He could probably use a good month of getting healthy. Redmond could go as well and join in when Ryan needs a breather.
