Jennifer Capriati Overdose & Vince Neil DUI


Over the weekend, former number one tennis player in the world, Jennifer Capriati was rushed to a Florida hospital after allegedly overdosing. I remember when Jennifer first showed up on the tennis radar. She was like 13 or 14 and was kind of loud and obnoxious but really, really good. She had huge success and then she kind of hit those mid to late teenage years and it all fell apart. She made a comeback a few years ago and it seemed like she was turning her life around. She was always a huge favorite of Matthew Perry and there were rumors the two had a thing for quite some time. There have not been any details about what she may have taken to overdose but her dad said she is going to be ok.
Early this morning, Vince Neil was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Las Vegas. TMZ spoke to his wife who said she was on her way to Vegas to bail him out.

She was arrested for shoplifting and pot possesion a few years back so she's had some problems over the years.

This is the same dude who had a fatal DUI in the 80's. He is offically on my shit list. There is just no need for DUIs to happen.

That's so messed up. Vince Neil killed someone and seriously injured two others in a DUI in '84 (or some time around then). What the f*ck was he thinking getting in a car again after drinking? He better be in some serious, serious trouble. And not the kind that lands him with Dr. Drew. The kind where he lands himself in jail so maybe he will think twice about getting in a car after having a few drinks. That really, really pisses me off.

Vince Neil deserves to get his ass beat in jail like the guy who tried to sell his baby got his ass beat. This waste of space was responsible for killing someone and seriously injuring two other people while drunk driving once already.

You paying attention, Lohan?

As big of a Motley Crue fan as I am, I agree that Vince Neil needs to go to jail for this one. Asshole.

Didn't Jennifer have one of those terrifying Tennis Dads? It's a horrible subspecies of parent, kind of like a stage mother but usually even worse.

What you guys said about Vince Neil. How dare he get in a car again drunk. Especially after having been responsible for killing his friend because of that. I'm so disgusted.

Jennifer hit rock bottom in the mid-1990s when she stopped playing tennis for awhile and did what teenagers do (especially teenagers who were never allowed to have fun, and became their family's meal ticket by age 13). She made a comeback a couple years later, and eventually won three Grand Slam titles. She had zero Grand Slam titles before. Shoulder problems derailed her career. I think she had three or four shoulder surgeries in a two-year span a few years ago in an attempt at another comeback. I bet she got addicted to painkillers due to her shoulder problems.

I remember when Capriati hit it big, because she had a loud "grunt" every time she hit the ball. I thought it was kind of endearing. Which was the one that got stabbed while she was playing?
