Yes, her boyfriend killed himself a few weeks ago, and there was speculation that she was involved somehow (like Courtney love/ kobain).
What a poorly written story at the link. She's dead, and the first words of the story are "It's been a difficult month for Mindy McCready" (I'll say!). And then it says she last tweeted in January, but the tweet is actually from January 2012.
R3, according to news reports he did, and it was unclear whether he'd committed suicide or someone killed him.
She was suspected of murdering him, R3. Messy stuff.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. She had all the advantages and resources necessary to clean up and treat her depression, and she chose not to, to the detriment of her children.
It's fortunate that she didn't take her kids with her; hopefully they can get enough counseling to live semi-normal lives.
Did she have a long affair with(douchebag!) Roger Clemmons ?
What r10 said.
She was a teen when she had an affair with Clemons. Way underage.
A sad and heartbreaking outcome, but not shocking considering her past. It sounds like her way into the disgusting world was paved by an MLB asshole.
Wasn't she engaged to Dean Cain back in the late 1990s?
R10 is, of course, an unnaturally crude and confused person.
Blame the ill. Assume advantage for mere wealth. Ignore the facts of psychological illness and addiction. And, of course, accuse a mother killing herself, after the fact, of perhaps having been thwarted in an impulse to kill her children.
Something as small as what resides in R10 should be called something other than humanity, and to call it beastly insults beasts.
R15 Not feeling sorry for her either. In a perfect world she would have cleaned up and raised healthy children. At least now they might end up healthy.
Another Dr. Drew success story!
Another of Dr. Drew's former reality tv rehab patients dead.
If only she had taken her Glaxo(TM) as she was told to do multiple times on camera on my acclaimed show, Celebrity Rehab.
I was tireless in encouraging her to take her Glaxo(TM) and as I explained to her, Glaxo(TM) is a lifesaver. Glaxo(TM) can help BUT ONLY IF THE PATIENT ALLOWS Glaxo(TM) TO WORK.
I am heartbroken that Mindy did not follow my directive to take Glaxo(TM).
Glaxo(TM) could have saved her life.
If you or anyone you know is feeling depressed, take Glaxo(TM) as soon as you are able to.
Consult your Glaxo(TM) dispensing physician.
Again, I repeat.
you know no more about McCready than r10.
r10 is entitled to an opinion, just as you are to yours.
But r10 is right, she had resources many do not.
Why is r10 expected to cry for her?
Oh R15, just shut up. Please. Just shut up. YOU (meaning people just like you) ALWAYS show up in any thread where someone with depression or mental illness commits suicide. Are you the fucking "compassion police?" Yes, we get it, it's NEVER the dead person's fault. It's the illness. Or the alcohol or the drugs that did it. The dead person, who leaves a trail of tears and scars everyone who ever knew her, is NEVER at fault in any way. Ever ever ever, right? And we are just supposed to go "That poor special snowflake!" Well, this chick had little children. And leaving them is the cruelest, most selfish thing a mother could do. And I, for one, am just a little tired of making out all these suicides as nothing but the tragic victims of forces beyond their control. Sometimes people DO know what they are doing. They just don't care.
r21 just shut up. Really. Shut up.
R15 is a mess! Talk about crude!
Poor gal. She didn't have an easy time of it.
R21 makes sense.
Sometimes DL showcases the worse of human nature. It doesn't get any worse than some of the posters in this thread.
I'm guessing she killed the boyfriend.
She sang "I'm Still Here" on Celebrity Rehab and it broke my heart.
No!! Shit. I am a fan. This is the first I read about it (go figure Datalounge). She was a mess but I was always rooting for her. Not surprising :(
What I never understand in suicide or drug overdose deaths, there is all this hand wringing (like r15) about it. Illness, dependency, etc...
But like I said a year ago with Whitney's death, no one forced her or anyone to take the drugs the first time. Sure, people get dependent on them but the real issue is the lack of strength or character that allows the entry of a drug.
Followed by the incessant lying and denying.
You want people to stay out of your business and quit bothering and caring about you, own it. I'm a crackhead. Gonna be a crackhead till the day I die, which will likely be imminent.
People wanted Whitney to get better. Mindy too. People can retain their care and the death will be less tragic, if one quits lying and denying.
Mindy's kids could have been in safe environment and prepped for their mother's demise, if she came clean.
If she was honest and open and said, my boyfriend's dead, I loved him and miss him more than my children. I know I'll attempt suicide for a 3rd time, (One time while pregnant). Take the kids, prep them, I'm not long for this world.
That would be the selfless, though still extremely selfish act of a mother concerned for her children.
Frankly, I think she was a fucking bitch. Way to show your kids your cared, you fucking bitch.
I'm one of those people who cringe a little when so many people on here make fun of someone's misery-but I just read that report and saw that she shot her dog before she killed herself-so I say-please continue.
R21's spleen is going to kill him. It's only a matter of time.
So many bleeding hearts on this thread. Oh Mary!
She fucking killed her dog. Funking piece of shit
She shot the dog?! May she rest in hell! Fucking bitch!
[quote]The dead person, who leaves a trail of tears and scars everyone who ever knew her
That's selfish. The person who kills themselves is in immense pain. People who are angry in the aftermath are selfish pricks. 'Please live in pain so I can be happy.' Get over it. It's not all about you. The person couldn't take it anymore. Suicide is not selfish.
[quote]So many bleeding hearts on this thread.
That makes no sense. Come back when you get a clue.
She shot the dog too? Why an innocent animal?
Many of you posters here should take a simple course in Psychology.
The toll of the dead from her Celebrity Rehab group:
You feel proud, Dr. Drew?
R31, that is fucked up. Wow. What the fuck? Why kill her dog? Probably was out of her mind on drugs. I hate that I read that. I am actually really saddened by her life.
She left her 9 month old what a selfish person!!! Now the kid is an orphan
Don't forget Jeff Conaway ..
THat is really weak.
Drugs are bad, y'all.
Yeah, she should have stayed around and showed him what it's like to live with an alcoholic, R43.
Here's a link to an interview she did on TODAY just a few weeks ago. If it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound why are they saying she was involved in his death? ... those poor kids.
I remember her from the Dr. Drew Celebrity Rehab show. Even when she was smiling and happy on the surface it's like the depression was waiting to just swallow her whole. Yes, that is really sad about her death.
Shot the poor innocent dog, huh? She would have been nothing but trouble for everyone's life she touched in the future. They know what they're doing these problem people. Trust that this is for the best.
I wish I had her skin. Flawless. Well, it used to be.
She seemed sweet.
She had a sex tape and the guy fucking her was hot. I wish it was Roger since I think he's super hot. mmm
Yes, like others here, I'm also remembering Jeff Conaway and his case was equally said -- so handsome and talented, but tortured and angry. They both had huge addiction problems.
R41 Thanks for reminding me of Mike Starr. I thought he was going to kick the heroin for good, but it kicked him instead. He was hot back in the day.
She got to ride Dean Cain's big, uncut cock. So it wasn't a total waste.
Mackenzie Phillips' (Mindy's Celeb Rehab roommate) heart is breaking.
[quote]Mackenzie Phillips' (Mindy's Celeb Rehab roommate) heart is breaking.
Big fucking deal, I can't BREATHE!!!
Um, who cares? Can someone wake me in the morning with my juice?
Those of you snarking on Dr. Drew (and I am no fan) have to realize this: He's not responsible for their deaths. He never guaranteed they were going to be "saved." No mental-health practitioner can make that guarantee.
The program was essentially the equivalent of a clinical trial for people with Stage 3 cancer. You know, going in, that some are going to make it; some aren't. Prognosis not great. If you're sick and hope to get well, it's best not to be that far along when you show up for treatment.
There are more posts here concerned about the dead dog than the living children she left behind.
That's cuz more people here have dogs or cats than they do children.
Yes, R70, because she SHOT her dog, not her child.
What about the pets!?
r70 Then buy her kid some flowers and adopt him. Why are you reading this thread, nee this site if you have such concerns? Go to ivillage and commiserate there.
I'm sorry she's dead.
But I'm really excited that after years on DL I finally can say, "Never heard of her."
So in her own way, she brought a little joy.
She was a selfish phony fame whore
I had a premonition about her death 2 days ago--just like I did Kurt Cobain's and some other things happening.
She killed the dog too? Why? Left her kids w/o a mother, killed her dog...selfish b*tch.
Ha! We were just talking about Dr. Drew's death toll two days ago here on DL on a thread about heroin. He's a despicable charlatan and the bullshit he spouts about addicts being permanently damaged and fundamentally different from "normal" people for as long as they inhale oxygen on this planet does NOTHING to help with these individuals' mental health issues, to say the absolute least.
Of course, Dr. Drew and his ilk will chalk this one up (as they did with all the others, I'm sure) to "the reality of the disease," because "Higher Power" knows that their theories NEVER fail.
It's not much of a premonition to imagine troubled people dying, r78.
ANY PICS OF JOEY KOVAR'S HUGE PENIS OR DEAN CAIN'S UNCUT DICK?
I know, what about the child? How do you them that mommy shot the dog!?
Sure it is R81. But I won't defend what I see or vibes I get to cynics like you.
I just made a comment that's all.
Joey kovars penis was hardly huge...nor hugely hard.
If you all will remember, Dr. Drew is the one who thinks (or used to think, anyway) that all homosexuality is the result of childhood abuse and/or trauma, and that as a result all gays are psychologically damaged.
He's the very definition of a charlatan and a fame whore. He may not bear responsibility for all these deaths, but they certainly don't say much for his abilities.
He knew too much, R87.
What ever happened to Billy McKnight? the asshole, abusive guy she was with and had her one child with?
Bad weekend for addicts. I just heard about a tv actor threatening suicide earlier today. Scary part is he wasn't drunk or high. Now he is and on his way to work soon. Hollywood is such a cesspool.
It sucks for her kids but sadly they are better off. She didn't seem to be able to get better.
Also r88 was he the one who said all overweight people had been sexually molested and were either in denial or suppressing the memories? Or was that some other charlatan. Lots of discussion at the office when that was aired.
She was the hardest looking 37 year-old I've ever seen.
Dr Drew is scum. How he has fans, I'll never know. What were her drugs of choice? Was there really talk about her shooting her boyfriend?
In "Crimes of The Heart", SS,JL,and Dk, are tormented by their mothers suicide. They were girls when it happens.
As young adults they can't fathom why she hangs the family dog when she hangs herself.
After JL saves SS from a suicide attempt, SS has an epiphany . She realizes their mother was afraid to be alone wherever she might be going. Their mother takes the dog to keep her company.
My best friend of thirty-three years died in October. He and I watched that movie many times together.
Wearing the lime-green gardening-gloves of a dead friend.
She also shot her dogs.. that isn't sad, that is fucked up
Apparently Mindy's mother (had custody of the kids for four years) was in a cult and was a nutcase, all the kids (McCready & brothers/sisters) left home when they could. I wonder what her siblings are saying? There's so much to this story - the drama that surrounded her life was endless. She probably couldn't get away from it even if she wanted to; sometimes drama sucks you in and you never escape.
r69, Dr Drew is a big part of adding to their delusions about staying in the industry.
Doug Stanhope (admitted alcoholic) on Pinsky. The "boating" line made me LOL.
How much money did she leave?
Let's cut to the chase.
12 step programs cause insanity
No they don't, R101.
GOOGLE the Orange Papers
I'm sorry she died.
May the angels guide her to her final resting place.
RIP beautiful Mindy
I can't believe I wrote dog! Sorry. The pictures in Sissy Spacek's scrapbook of horror has the hilarious newspaper picture of the mother & cat, each covered with their own,size appropriate sheet!
Something special about that movie is the black humor (stating the obvious here.) but when I saw it the first time it was at the theater when it first came out.
I was with my straight brother,and we were laughing a lot. I remember people in the audience were shooshing us, because they were taking it so seriously !
Still can't believe I wrote dog! I have four.
It was a dog that hung itself in POLYESTER.
Good-bye cruel world.
Oh no, I loved The Mindy Project.
r106 Yes, and Mackenzie was there with her hence them being good friends. That was scary, it was the craziest thing I have seen on there. After that she (Mindy) moved in with uber cunt Kari Ann Peniche and I guess they each accused each other of stealing the other one's sex tapes or something.
Whos that hot guy she was fucking in her sex tape?
[quote]Why did she kill her dog too?
Maybe she was worried he'd try to eat her body. That the only thing I can think of. Then again, she could have just put him outside.
She probably killed the dog because she deludely and selfishly thought he couldn't live without her. i wonder if her kids would have been killed if they were there?
It's difficult to say, but the kids may have been her saving grace. It's being reported that a major reason for her spiral is the fact that the kids were taken away from her. If they were still in her family's custody, she may have found the strength to keep going. Very sad situation.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
