Tabloid Whore!



Ok, so last night I watched Celebrity Fit Club on VH1. I haven't really watched its previous seasons, but this time they have some pretty good people on so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm not going to do write ups every week for it, but I had to address the issue of Jeff Conaway and last night's show. Oh dear, if you watched it, you know that our beloved Kenickie from Grease had a meltdown on air. First off, he is always walking around with slurred speech, sounding like he is hopped up on something. Secondly, when he took off his shoes for the weigh in, he threw them towards the judges table in anger and started yelling at them. That doesn't even count him spontaneously lifting up his shirt up to show his big belly a bunch of times or, as Tempestt Bledsoe (love her!) reminded us, dropping his pants. The guy blamed his behavior all on taking 2 Benedryl. Um, yah, ok. Hey, we have all had our incidences with allergy medicine or what not and we know it can make you somewhat loopy. But c'mon Kenickie, we weren't born yesterday! Neither was Chastity Bono and girlfriend stood up and called him out, saying very diplomatically that the rest of the fit crew all believe he was on something. I never knew much about Chastity before except that she was Sonny and Cher's daughter, a lesbian and overweight. Now I know she is also an awesome person. The way she talked to Kenickie, telling him how sad it made her to see him like that and how she knew where he was coming from because she too had once been addicted to pain killers due to chronic pain, touched my heart. Chastity, you rock! Next week looks like it's going to be even more crazy when it comes to Kenickie and his problems, so make sure to tune in. Best of luck to him, because even though he is a mess on the show, I like the guy and feel for him.

Chastity is great, I agree. She actually succeeded in shutting up that loaded windbag.

He was once such a cutie... and now he's such an obvious druggie. Did you see the part where he mooned the other members when unsuppressed giggles were heard after he said that he goes to the bathroom all the time because he has a "small bladder" (Chastity and Tempest, I think). I'm afraid it's more like a small I.Q. if he thinks anyone is buying his story. He took a bunch of "vitamins" on that show before his run--

So what do you suppose the odds are that this guy will be out of denial anytime soom? If he does a successful rehab; and quits blaming his sucky life and the fact that (egads) his mom worked--all the footage from this show could be just the ticket to keep him sober. Otherwise, this dude is going to overdose from embarrassment.
