Mindy McCready Committed To Mental Health Facility By Judge - Children Removed From Her Care

It remains to be seen whether Mindy McCready killed her boyfriend. I think she did. One thing is for certain though and that in the month since it happened, she has turned into the old, unstable Mindy. Yesterday family services removed both of her children from her care and a judge ordered that she be committed to a mental health facility for 21 days. Mindy has been abusing substances and admitted such to the court yesterday. I hope the two kids end up with her mother. Her mom had been the guardian for Mindy's oldest child until recently.

Overdue......

Apparently this is what sleeping with Roger Clemens gets you.

I loved her when she first started in country music. Oh, how the slightly-above-mediocre have fallen.

Shit. Things just keep getting worse Mindy. Whenever Mindy is in the press, I think of all the crazy things Britney did and how close she was to losing the battle with her demons. Really close.

This could also be a strategy or ploy to create distance between herself and investigators.

i doubt she was ever in a good place. glad the kids have been removed from her "care".

She reminds me of Nancy Grace

I randomly put on some celebrity rehab on Netflix the other day as background music while I cleaned and ended up getting really sad. There was Mindy, who seemed like the most mature and sweet person there, and the guy from Alice in chains who seemed very nice and down to earth who ended up dying from drugs later and the real world guy who also od'd and left behind a kid :((( I hate it when shit gets "real". Those three were easily the most likeable people (and troubled, sadly) on that season.

Hope she gets it together. It's not looking good for her, though. Sad deal for her kids.

Silly Girl said...

@Laura, that's sad! I don't think I've ever seen that show. I don't think I'm going to now.

LottaColada said...

@Laura, I agree. I saw a few episodes back in the day and Mindy seemed the most stable out of the bunch (at that time). Kari Ann Peniche was insufferable. I still can't believe her name was brought up for that Catfish show.

Pookie said...

she needs 10,000 angels watching over her tonight.

Tuxedo Cat said...

Those poor children. Mindy seems like a lost soul. I hope she didn't murder her husband.

Susan said...

Yeah. Celebrity Rehab is too "real" for my blood. I've watched, especially the earlier seasons, and it's just so depressing. And so many of the people on it relapse. I feel so bad for anyone with addiction.

It seems really irresponsible to pin this man's death on her before she is actually charged. I know she's been flip-flopping on her story, but I do subscribe to the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing.

JSierra said...

Lotta Kari Anne is insufferable, the definition of a woman child. Has anyone else noticed that one of the counselors Jen is currently trying to edge in as a new RHOBH via her best friend Brandi?

Sherry said...

She must have been awfully bad for her kids to be taken and her to be ut in a mental care facility. That is really hard to do in most states. Maybe she had a breakdown from his death. Who can say with this one.

ethorne said...

Lol @Chanel ;)

Susan said...

Man oh man. I just read up a bit on Mindy. Talk about a tragically whirlwind life. She tried to commit suicide while pregnant. So sad...

ethorne said...

Yes @JSierra, I saw her lurking at a party last season. I guess her & Brandi are BFF&E, random.

stigs84 said...

@jsierra yes, that Jen woman! I always look to see what she's drinking when she has a drink in her hand lol

This is a ploy to make her unstable to stand trial? If she's not in jail she can always go visit the kids at her mom's. But if she ends up behind bars, kids and Grandma will be on the other side of the glass.

MissInfo said...

Jennifer Gimenez use to be a popular model back in the day...more so on runways than print. She became good friends with Brandi years ago through modeling - you should see both of their old modeling pictures, beautiful! She's actually a very sweet person.

I saw the one episode of Celeb Rehab with Tim Conoway (where he was at death's door) and it gave me such a huge case of the sads I never watched it again. :(

I don't know if Mindy did it or not, but it's always tragic to see people with talent go up and fall hard. I remember reading a book by someone in H'wood who said celebrity was a machine that will eat you up, mold you, and spit out their idea of what you should be.

Silly Girl said...

@prolixe, I think you mean Jeff Conoway. Tim Conway is from Carol Burnett...

prolixe said...

Ah, yes, Jeff not Tim. Thank you, Silly Girl!

Silly Girl said...

Jeff Conoway in Grease was one of my faves. SO sad about him. Tim Conway as the guy who said, Mrs. A-Higgins what the best, too!

scratchy kitty said...

Thats exactly what I thought too. I am getting cynical in my old age.

auntliddy said...

Its incredibly sad, and its meant to show how awful addiction is. From that show, jeff conway, alice in chains guy and rodney king all dead from addiction. Dr drew says they put their patients in the ground all the time, and he really doesnt know any other way to help them. He wanted to show hiw unglamourous addiction is.

RocketQueen said...

I feel so sorry for those kids :(

cricket said...

How did she get the older child back after she kidnapped from her Mother? She was actually pretty good back when her first CD came out. Too bad her life went downhill like this.

NaughtyNurse said...

This is really sad. Think she is the celebrity who had locked herself in her shed and threatened to kill herself?
