Demi Moore Loves Devo - Oh Wait Whip It The Drug, Not The Song


Whenever I read or hear about someone who loves getting wasted off nitrous oxide, I always think a couple of things. You have a serious drug problem when you have decided on nitrous to be your drug of choice. Oh, and when you choose nitrous you basically do restrict yourself to home drug use because it is pretty tough to either schlep around a nitrous oxide canister you got from a doctor or carting around cases of whipped cream with you. Demi, what you needed to do was eat some of the whipped cream, not just suck the air out of the cans. Next time Demi, go for the spray paint cans. I always love when the police on COPS arrest someone who has been sniffing spray paint and they have paint all over their face and they say, "No, officer I wasn't doing anything."


Now I have to go listen to Devo. Be back in a few minutes.

OMG! Drugs were so organic in my day........

I have to ask... how did doing whip-its even sound like a good idea?

Of course, this is the woman who married Ashton Kutcher... I suppose her judgment has been impaired for some time.

Seachica said...

So does one have a big tank standing by their bed? And how do you get the tank -- does your dentist prescribe it? I'm so unknowledgable about this, but I have images of sucking helium out of balloons.

In my day, we did other, non drug, things with whipped cream cans. Just as much fun, less getting yourself thrown into the hospital ;)

Huffing is just so pathetic.

AngusParvo said...

Seriously, huffing? I had a loser cousin, a total bonehead dirtbag. Raised by his grandmother, stole her checkbook all the time, was so bad that he would huff the gas out of the lawnmower so granny couldn't keep a mower at her house. That's the kind of lowlife who huffs. Whatever happened to cocaine? Do they still make that? Whatever, get well soon Demi.

txtommom said...

The only good thing about going to the dentist is getting the gas. Makes my toes curl in a good way...but I couldn't imagine doing that on a regular basis.

Audrey said...

I did whip-its in college. It's a short rush (lasts only seconds). It cuts the oxygen off from your brain. It's ok...but there are definitely better things to get high from.

BigMama said...

It bothers me a great deal that she is doing something so juvenile (not that all drugs aren't stupid) in a house with children in it. Worse, impressionable teen girls in it. I get it, you are upset over a failed marriage. However, you still have kids that need you so pull yourself together. It is hard to look at your kid and say "don't do this" while you are holding the can, or joint, or needle or whatever.

Mango said...

What a cheap and desperate high.

discoflux said...

Wow. They don't call it hippie crack for nothing. It keeps you feeling like you're on the brink of discovering some great spiritual truth when in reality it's just the same effects of the white light at death because of cerebral oxygen deprivation.

Is she so jaded and so bored with life that she can't find anything better to make herself feel better? I know the desire to escape from problems and the reality of consequence can be overwhelming but, maybe go spend some time at a meditation retreat... not taking the risking of leaving your children motherless for a high. Sheesh.

rareavis said...

I always think of Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet.

Are we certain she was huffing? Methinks too, too much coke.
Remember when she played that character in 'St. Elmo's Fire'? The huge Billy Idol on the wall, pink everywhere, curtains in the cold wind? In my minds eye, I see her like that now. Her strange choices lead her here, but whose going to rescue her this time?

presidentresident said...

This story just doesn't sound remotely true. Sounds like a total publicist spin. Sure, say that she OD'd on an innocuous drug that is used at the dentist. Maybe she did do a whip it and passed out, but I'll bet that that is just the tip of the mountain as far as Demi is concerned. And I doubt that one can either OD on or be addicted to whipits.

discoflux said...

@JR - You may not be able to get physically addicted to N2O, but you can develop and addiction to the sensation of disconnecting from reality. And you can "OD" on it. The nitrous molecule replace the oxygen molecules in the bloodstream, choking off the oxygen supply. If you're using a dental tank and a mask., you can suffocate yourself.

Long term use can also cause severe B12 deficiency and nervous system damage.

Tempestuous Grape said...

I've been thinking a lot about this since yesterday. Here's my take; She's been sober for a long time. She's been hurting since Ashton left and her kids are probably not around much. I think she wanted to "get high" but didn't want to blow her sobriety, so she went with hippie crack and ended up killing it.

presidentresident said...

@discoflux, all that you say is true.

I just don't for a second think that this story is true. The fact that we are even discussing whether or not you can be addicted to or od on no2 just shows that the publicist has done his or her job.

It's a lot more likely that this was a coke/vodka/prescription drug thing that whip its. Think about it! If I were a publicist I'd be telling everyone that she's out of action due to anorexia (sympathetic issue) and whip its (which see as a lame high school drug and not evil like coke).

Stranger things have happened and maybe this is true, but I doubt it.

discoflux said...

@Tempestuous Grape - I'd say that's a pretty fair assessment. While it's easy for me or anyone else to say that with all that money there is a better way to deal with things, the need for instant relief can lead to bad decision making. I hope she finds some patience with herself and comes through healthy and maybe even a better person.

MISCH said...

I can understand why she likes it ( makes me tingle all over ) but I walked into a wall at my dentists office after being treated and he knows what he doing. This is not a drug I would play with...

RJ said...

What a white-trash form of drug abuse for a wealthy, grown woman. I think that huffing is even more white trash than meth. Repeated use of whipits can cause brain damage and seizures. I wonder if she had a seizure and then someone called 911. Do we know who called 911? Was it her or some of her people or one of her daughters? I don't think she had enough brain cells to begin with, she sure doesn't need to be killing any more.

timebob said...

@RJ according to TMZ one of her friends was at the house when Demi did a whip it and started having symptoms of a seizure. That is what prompted the 911 call. I'm sure the anorexia didn't help things either.

Demi seems pretty calculated. I wonder if she set this drama up to get Ashton out of Brazil and back to LA to help her and she just took it too far.

Maja With a J said...

@rareavis - I have had the same scene in my head since I heard she was taken to the hospital *L*. Those CURTAINS.

chopchop said...

"It's like I'm walking on sunshine!"

Still my favorite episode of Intervention ever.

selenakyle said...

@RJ:

Same thing my hubby said--"well shit, that's a poor high school kid's high!"

As I said before, this woman is simply NOT mature (if this is even true). Heck, I'd much rather just admit coke use for cryin' out loud, than have the world think at age 48 I was still doing friggin' whip-its to get high.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I can't hate on her, she needs some help. Bless her heart.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I can't help but wonder...was she really THAT in love that she's hurting so bad now. I guess it's possible.

violet said...

@chop chop- that IS the best Intervetion Episode ever.

@R: I agree with you. There is no way this is the true story or at the very least the whole story.

Bleu said...

Anyone whose teeth are almost as wide as her body has an eating disorder.

El Roy 13 said...

so wait....you mean, she doesn't get that body from exercise, clean living and eating????

Wow! She had me fooled.



I kid.
(anyone who claims to be clean living AND still smokes tobacco, especially w/filters, well that's a dead giveaway that they are liars.)

Shay said...

Demi, please just smoke weed like the rest of your Hollywood pals...and the bonus is that the munchies would probably help you gain a few much needed pounds.

Susan said...

Oh, I totally buy that this delusional almost-50-something did a whipit in a desperate attempt to convince herself that she is still in her 20s.

I also totally agree with yesterday's conspiracy theorists who believe she's had a drug problem all of these years with Ashton, he was totally moveon.org about it. TOTALLY!!!

Would love to know what her daughters thinks about all this. Sucks when you have to be the parent for the parent.

ForSure said...

TMZ is reporting that the 911 call will be heavily redacted before its released to the public to protect 'patient privacy'. Yeah, lets see if that little privilege happens with any other 911 calls coming out of LA for the rest of the year.

Get help Demi, and get those kids over to Bruce Willis' house for their own safety.

RocketQueen said...

Well if this is true, it's just sad.

She should take a page from Whitney's (lying) book: "I make WAY too much money to huff!"

hoosierlady said...

Seriously,

I might try to snort whipped cream it is soooooooooooooo good.

Róisín|nísióR said...

I saw a picture of Rumer yesterday on TMZ and she looked sooo upset. Demi is so stupid and selfish to put her kids through this. If you're depressed go to a therapist and then go to a spa (seeing as she can afford both). Whip its? Seriously, that shit is for bums and stupid teens.

RenoBlondee said...

@rareavis and @Maja
YES, me too! That is all I think about when I read these stories on her. Quick! Go get a blow torch y'all!

Not A Ninny said...

Yargh, you people! The high from nitrous isn't due to oxygen deprivation. It's an anesthetic with mildly trippy qualities. You CAN die from not getting the mix right and not getting enough oxygen--knew a guy in high school who did that. But generally it's a harmless drug if used properly.

"Huffing" is gas, glue, dry cleaning fluid fumes, not nitrous.

It was probably using some other drug that caused Demi's trip to the ER. Nitrous is less scandalous than coke or E or whatever.

Jessie said...

I was wondering yesterday and though y'all would know: how did Ashton and Demi meet?

Rickatoo said...

I love the (very rare) occasion when I have a can of whipped cream in the house and the can goes empty so I can finish off the nitrous in it :)

mooshki said...

"it's a harmless drug if used properly."

I dunno; in my experience, most people need to desperately hold onto the few brain cells they have, not kill them off. :(

Unknown said...

I'd feel more sorry for her but she has kids. I don't give a shit how bad you feel, you have children! This is so not fair to them. Selfish, selfish, selfish. And no penis is worth this kind of shit.

Gah.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

God help me, but the first time I read about Demi doing whip-its, I misread it as *whippets*, and thought to myself "Jesus H. Christ, girl--they threw your ass in rehab for f*cking dogs?" (An obvious snark about Ashton immediately comes to mind, but I won't say it... ;-)

Fortunately, I took a second look and realized "Oh, she's just huffing whipped cream cans...well, I guess that's better, but still..." Oh, the places my evil little mind goes...

Hendrix said...

Unlike other commenters, I feel very sad about this. Clearly a talented, sensitive woman (and devoted Mom) with such huge self-esteem issues all her life that she'd marry a childish, narcissistic man as a midlife strategy. Sometimes a loss (as in a divorce, death, job loss etc) especially at a crucial life phase (like before turning 50) can be so traumatic that it brings back other previous losses that the person has not fully dealt with or grieved through - death of parents or sibling; previous divorces, etc. This can be very serious and isn't just about 'feeling sorry for yourself.' And proves that beauty, fame & money don't ever fill up the empty spaces in our souls, even though it may look as if they do from those of us on the outside.
She may have needed to hit such a bottom, hope she grows and heals from it and doesn't crawl back into the shell of denial. Depends on her degree of narcissism and willingness to throw away her pride for the sake of her kids and herself. Praying for her.
