Appears to be suicide.

Very sad...

Sad. We knew it would happen eventually.

Didn't her boyfriend die recently, too?

by Anonymousreply 302/17/2013

So sad.

by Anonymousreply 402/17/2013

Yes, her boyfriend killed himself a few weeks ago, and there was speculation that she was involved somehow (like Courtney love/ kobain).

by Anonymousreply 502/17/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 902/17/2013

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 ?

by Anonymousreply 1102/17/2013

What r10 said.

by Anonymousreply 1202/17/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1302/17/2013

Wasn't she engaged to Dean Cain back in the late 1990s?

by Anonymousreply 1402/17/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1502/17/2013

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 of Dr. Drew's former reality tv rehab patients dead.

by Anonymousreply 1802/17/2013

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.

That's Glaxo(TM).

Again, I repeat.

r15 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?

by Anonymousreply 2002/17/2013

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.

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 :(

by Anonymousreply 2902/17/2013

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.

[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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
