Before 2005 ended, McCready had suffered two drug overdoses, was arrested on drug charges, was pregnant with McKnight's child and, authorities say, attempted suicide.
She attempted suicide again in 2008, authorities say, and had another drug overdose in 2010 before joining the cast of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." The reality show chronicles the life of celebrities as they're treated for alcohol and drug addiction.
Personal tragedies aside...
Where the hell were all those "professionals" around her that seemed to be incapable of telling her NO.
Celebrity for Drugs.
Acclaim and following for Drugs.
More mental illness (Duh!)
Some people with more talent than her will struggle their whole lives for a tiny sliver of what she had. Some people who are sick and dying will struggle for the rest of their lives to hold on to something... anything... that reminds them of who they are and what they are capable of.
She was rich, beautiful, talented, and obviously a savvy entertainer.
But drugs... with the willing accomplices of the press, her agents, the people (leeches) that surrounded her, the record company, the 'music industry' - the all gave her a pass.
She was a meal ticket for them... and they only mourn the loss of that.
They lost her a long time ago.
They just didn't care.
Prepare for the tearful "We miss you so much, Mindy" moments from these abysmally cretinous vermin.
They only miss her money, and welcome a chance to be on TV faking their loss.
