Blind Item #4

This former A+ list mostly movie actress was hammered at a recent event where she was speaking. Probably not the best place or time to be drunk.

Julia?

Ooh her sisters memorial/funeral just happened

Seven of Eleven said...

I was JUST reading this story on DM! Julia's deceased sister says she wouldn't let him attend the memorial service and was a major B to him. It also says she gave an "unexpected speech" at the memorial service.

Linky to the DM

MsWool said...

that isn't fair.

When my brother died unexpectedly at 32 I was barely able to cope. My dad gave me a xanax to get through the funeral... I'm sure people would have thought I was "hammered" because I wasn't functioning like normal.

Of all the mean things people say about her, I think this situation has been the worst. You have NO IDEA what went on between the two of them... and neither do I. I was horribly angry with my brother for all the stupid shit he had done and how he had been the author of his own demise... but my heart was also broken.

It's totally unfair to judge this woman based on the words of someone who was likely an enabler.

And I DON'T like Julia Roberts... I think she's highly overrated and has a strange mouth.

I find it difficult to criticize anyone being tipsy or even drunk at a sibling's service.
Tragedy can mess with you.
Not a huge Julia fan, but I don't think this is a big deal.
If she was able to speak, how drunk was she? Not falling down, obviously.

A low Julia

This is what kept bothering me about her in pics yesterday!... She TOTALLY looked functional drunk, I just couldn't put my finger on it.

I like the no-judgey train. I shall ride it.

Yeah, I agree. If there's ever an ok time to be drunk or drugged out, it's during extreme emotional times dealing with family and family tragedies. Julia should be given the free passes at this time.

When my father died his children weren't mentioned in the published Obit and neither were we invited to any service they may have had. He was never a part of our lives. My little sister was hurt and thought his partner should have mentioned us as family. BUT he was part of another family we had nothing to do with. They were certainly within their right to allow who ever they wanted there.

I see this as the same thing for Julia's family. Her partner could also have had a memorial and could very well have paid for the cremation. Something tells me they wanted her to pay for everything and direct how it should be done. They could have done it themselves.

No shade to Julia on this one.

I was hoping someone remembered that. She is a piece of trash that never really left the trailer park.

ichabod absolom said...

trailer trash do not claim her. I don't really know about this but I do know I wanted to vomit when I read her comment about her sister's death. It was ridiculous and made me envision roach clips with florescent feathers hanging from the rearview mirror of a nova it was so tacky and insincere.

Riven said...

@MsWool I agree with your entire post. My brother was an addict with a very messed up enabler girlfriend. He would not speak to me for 2 years before he OD'd at age 30 because his gf was destroying him and had him completely controlled.

I walked out of his funeral when that ex-gf made her sobbing pathetic lie-filled speech at his service. I just couldn't listen. If I had gotten my way she would have been banned but my mom (who's a devote Catholic) went on and on about forgiveness and how her son would smile at us from heaven for letting his ex be there to grieve (*cough* HeWasAnAtheist *cough*). Anyway, my only regret is that I didn't punch the b*tch on my way out.

Anyway my point is NO ONE except Julia and her deceased sister knows every facet of their relationship and I think it's disgusting the glee with which people are talking about it. It's tragic and I just want to give her a hug ya know? Even though I personally do not like Julia Roberts and never have.

And the cokehead enabling ex who demanded the spotlight at her dead ex's funeral? It's been over 3 years since I lost my twin and I still truly hope she dies. Painfully. Slowly. With great anguish. And completely alone. I wonder if Julia feels the same?

Sally Field u hoochie!

Bee Haven said...

That's sad Sherry. Blood is still blood. My dad's funeral was taken over by mad Pentecostals who treated it like a celebration. No room for mourning.

Seven of Eleven said...

Sheesh, I just re-read that and it sounds like Julia had a seance or something.

Julia is saying her deceased sister wouldn't have wanted the fiance to attend the memorial service.

Sherry said...

Bee: Considering I hadn't seen my father since I was 18 and that he was never a part of our lives it was just how it was.

Bee Haven said...

Sherry: fair enough. I guess in some cases, blood is not thicker than water.

Trilby said...

I'll judge: she's a hypocritical c**t who only cares about her "image". She had no problem making her sister feel like crap because of her weight while she was alive. If you can't love unconditionally while someone's alive, don't even bother to show up at her funeral. Biggest c**t in the biz - & god knows it's a heavily competitive field.

Dingle Barry said...

I agree with Trilby, the rest of you live in the real world where we have normal emotional responses, the whole range of them. Julia only ever considers herself. She has proven this time and time again. There is good reason that she is universally despised. The woman is not right. No brother. No husband. No kids. Paps are there. All for show.

And why are they burying her remains three months later?!! Oh, it fits into her schedule.

Countess Eden said...

Sherry, that's so sad. Did you have a stepdad or any father figure growing up? These days, it's so normal to have a blended family and dad's expect wives and gf to accept all children which is so much better than when I was younger. I only knew one girl with divorced parents. My parents are still married, but as a divorced mom and stepmom, I believe that stepkids are a blessing. I wish we saw more of mine. I know the boundaries though and mom and dad will always trump step parents and that's the way it should be...

Malibu Borebee said...

She clearly resents having to fake-grieve for the public.

Alita said...

Every part of that was sad and awful, @Riven :(

Agree that if this is Julia, I'm not going to pass comment.

But generally speaking, no drinking before speeching is good advice.
