When did a tragedy in life come with a recovery routine? I am talking about when tragedies happen to celebrities and socialites of course.

Lately, I can’t help but notice that when bad things happen in the life of celebrities they don’t take time to themselves or turn to family and friends only to get them through the pain. Instead they turn to Oprah and the public! It has become so routine that you can almost predict who a celebrity is going to turn to during their time of need based on the tragedy or based on who the celebrity is.

Tragedy  and The Recovery Routine

Tragedy Recovery Routine
Drug addition  Rehab & A Visit to Dr. Drew
Sex Addition, Cheating on the spouse, Caught in sex act, Producing a sex tape Sex rehab & Visit Pierce Morgan Tonight (Maybe Oprah too)
Celebrity death in the family, Celebrity has a brush with death Family of the celebrity goes on Oprah, Pierce Morgan & The View
Celebrity divorce, Celebrity separation Visit to The View & Oprah. Also an interview on E! News
Celebrity accident (car accident, skiing accident, injured on film set, etc) A visit to The View and an interview on E! News
Random celebrity scandal and negative rumors A Visit To The View, Ellen Degeneres & Pierce Morgan
Celebrity child dies or become sick or takes the wrong path A Visit to The View, Oprah and maybe Pierce Morgan

It has become expected or normal to share your pain with the world even when the tragedy or situation is considered very personal by most people. Why has painful experiences and personal strife become necessary public knowledge. This is not therapeutic or helpful for the celebrity. If a person needs to talk to someone to cope with a tragedy they should go to a professional therapist or psychologist. Although Oprah and the ladies at The View are very mothering and they APPEAR to be concerned, the fact is they are not professional therapists or psychologists, they are simply professional conversationalist! So why would anyone put their person pain and grief on display only for public speculation, opinion, ridicule and judgement. More importantly when did this become an acceptable way of life or the routine.

If you have never noticed this before or did not know this at all, now you know……………

Yes, it is official!! French actor Olivier Martinez  and Halle Berry are engaged to be married!!

Oliver was at Miami’s South Beach on Saturday to attend the opening of his new restaurant “Villa Azur”. This is where Oliver confirmed his engagement to actress Halle Berry during an interview with Miami.com. When Oliver was ask by Miami.com about the rumors surrounding about him and Halle getting secretly engaged, Oliver answered “Yes, of course it’s true!”

 

The Ring

Also there were many contradicting rumors surrounding the engagement ring and its designer.

“There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie!,” said Martinez. “They have nothing to do with this.” So who is the real designer behind the emerald-and-yellow-gold stunner you might ask? Olivier revealed that the ring’s true designer is “real artist” Robert Mazio, a jeweler from his Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood in Paris, whose family has been designing jewelry for “kings and queens for many centuries.” Wow, so Oliver gave Halle a custom made ring designed for a Queen, fabulous!

Halle Berry Swore off Marrigae

My only question is what changed Halle’s mind about marriage. After Halle Berry ended her marriage to Eric Bennett she visited the Oprah Winfrey show and swore off marriage for good stating, “I will never marry again”. This was a factor when Halle was in her last relationship with male model Gabriel Aubrey; it was common knowledge that Gabriel really wanted to marry Halle, but since she had sworn off marriage Halle  refused to marry Gabriel and turned down his marriage proposal.  So now this engagement seems very sudden to most people since Halle began dating Oliver right after Gabriel. The is also very significant because Halle is asking a judge to allow her to move to France with Olivier, and 3-year-old Nahla who is the child she had with Gabriel Aubrey. Halle and Gabriel have been going through a very nasty child custody battle over Nahla, so Halle attempting to move out of the country with Nahla may add more fuel to the fiery custody battel between Halle and Gabriel.

In California and most states, a judge would look at the stability of the parent’s relationship and a marital relationship might appear far more stable and persuasive to a judge than boyfriend and girlfriend relationship. No word yet on when Halle and Oliver will marry, but we’re told a marriage will DEFINITELY take place.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Singer Ray J decides to open up to the public about his grief over the loss of Whitney Houston.

The 31-year-old singer spoke about his grief at a charity event for the Brotherhood Crusade and Mothers In Action.

Ray J told waiting reporters: “I know why a few of you came out so, I will address the issue as respectable as I can; I really miss my friend. I really do.

“I’m still hurting… I just wanna say, like Whitney, I love giving back to the community.”

Ray J added: “I’ve been through a lot in these past two weeks. I’m able to look at life in a whole different way.

“I always look at my phone because I’ve got a picture of somebody that I really love and it helps me through the day. But for the most part, I’m just here for the kids. I’m here to give back.

“I’m really emotional right now… what I will say is that I love and I’m hurt, but I enjoy being around people that support me and give me a sense of peace and that’s what the Brotherhood Crusade does for me.”

Ray J previously described Houston as being “so happy and full of love”.

Ray J also made a statement released shortly after Whitney Houston age 48, passed on February 11, he said: ”I’ve tried to process the emptiness that I am experiencing. What my heart feels cannot be expressed in words.”

Ray J has been trying to clean up his reputation, he no longer wants to be known as the guy who filmed himself having sex with Kim Kardashian. Ray J is giving back through the Brother Crusade; He donated school supplies, including Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones, clothes, backpacks and notebooks via the organization. It seems as though he is trying to walk a more clear and righteous path.

“The most important thing of all is that God is talking to me. God is talking to me right now, and now is the time to listen. My ears are open.” -Ray J.

Whitney Houston suffered a heart attack due to prolong atherosclerotic heart disease.  After several weeks of waiting and speculation, the coroners office finally released the singer’s autopsy report stating that this was the official cause of death.

Whitney’s death was also due to an accidental drowning, as well as years of cocaine abuse. It is suspected that Houston’s cocaine abuse lead to the development of heart disease — specifically, atherosclerotic heart disease.

 

At 3:01 p.m. PST  

The Houston family released a statement to The Associated Press :

“We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.” -Patricia Houston,  sister-in-law & manager

Q: What exactly is atherosclerotic heart disease? How did it contribute to Houston’s drowning?

A: Atheresclerotic heart disease occurs when plaque hardens within the arteries, narrowing them and limiting the flow of blood to other organs in the body and can lead to heart-attack, stroke and even death.

There are a several factors that can contribute to the diagnosis of a heart condition. Some of the causes are: lack of exercise, poor diet and alcohol abuse. However Whitney Houston’s condition was exacerbated by years of cocaine use. The constant use and exposure of the chemical make-up of cocaine within the blood vessels often lead to multiple scarring in the heart and arteries. Unfortunately it is most likely that Whitney’s heart condition triggered a heart attack after the singer took her final hit of cocaine. This caused her to have heart failure while she was in the bathtub, which then led to her accidental drowning.

The 48-year-old singer openly struggled with drug abuse throughout her life, she spoke candidly on the subject during her 2002 interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer. However due to Whitney’s heart condition the repeated use of cocaine caused a severe impact on her heart.

Whitney Houston’s body was found submerged under water in the bathtub of her suite at the Beverley Hills hotel on Feb. 12.  The singer died on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. Although the autopsy report states that the cause of death was due to a heart attack the toxicology tests did report that cocaine and other drugs where found in Whitney’s system.  Based on the toxicology report Whitney had marijuana, Flexeril (the muscle relaxant) , Xanax (the anti-anxiety medication) and  Benadryl (allergy medicine). The other drugs that were found in Whitney’s hotel room were Ibuprofen and Midol.  However none of these drugs contributed to the singers cause of death. Investigators found NO EVIDENCE of cocaine in the hotel room.

Law enforcement at the crime scene stated from the beginning that they did not suspect foul play, officers suspected early on that the singers death was not a homicide.

Whitney Houston’s family members were upset to learn that the singer had drugs in her system. However the Houston family had doubts about Whitney’s demise — suggesting there may have been foul play.

The coroner’s office did not say how much cocaine was found in Houston’s system, but it was noted that there were signs of both recent and chronic use. It will be a couple weeks before the coroner’s office can reveal exactly how much cocaine was in Houston’s system.

Meanwhile, Whitney Houston’s friend and reported one-time beau, Ray J, told TMZ on Thursday that he had no idea the 48-year-old singer was using cocaine again. Whitney and Ray J were spotted together during the days before her death. Singer-producer Ray J was not at the Beverly Hilton hotel where Houston died. Houston died just hours before she was expected to appear at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy Awards party.

This is a very sad ending to a iconic career. I will always love Whitney, her lagacy will live on in her music and in her fans (like me). Whitney fans will get to see Houston in the movie “Sparkle,” due out this summer.
