Tatum O'Neal blames her dog's death for her bad decision to purchase Crack off a common street dealer.

Actress O'Neal has squarely blamed her arrest in New York on Sunday over the death of her dog, claiming the loss fueled her drug usage.

The actress, who won an Oscar as a child and revealed a life of addiction and unhappy family memories in her memoir, "A Paper Life," was arrested by police on Sunday night, after a narcotics team observed her dealing with a known drug dealer three blocks from her home in New York.

First, O'Neal claimed her drug purchase was "research" for a film role, but she has now claimed it was her dog's death three weeks ago that "set her off."

She tells the New York Post, "There's no excuse for what I did. (But) I lost my Scottish terrier, Lena. That seemed to set me off.

"She got old. She got cancer. She was the fabric of our family. We had to let her go to heaven. My daughter and I had to put her down. It was too horrible for words.

"I couldn't get out of it. I was going to my psychiatrist. I was doing everything I could do. I have the disease of alcoholism. It's lifelong. I treat it every day by going to my 12-step program."

O'Neal credits the cops for her salvation, "I'm still sober! Just when I was about to change that and wreck my life, the cops came and saved me!

"I was saved by the bell, by the guys in the Seventh Precinct."

O'Neal is facing one misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance and will be in court on July 28.

Maybe the dog ate her crack.

This is the best celebrity excuse ever - better than Kevin Spacey "walking his dog in a park at 3am" when he was cruising for sex.

When most people blame the dog it's because they farted - celebrities take dog blame to new levels

crack is a powerful drug


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Likely coincidental (I doubt Tantrum knows Tamil), but her idea looks a lot like one presented in a 1989 Kollywood film.

A social worker arrives at a village to treat many of the villagers from alcoholism. The story from one of the villagers shows the magnitude of the task:

  • claims to drink because the most recent state CM died in office (in real life, a CM had died 1987/12/24)
  • prior to that, because the South's "kingmaker" (again, real-life figure) had died
  • prior to that, village headman
  • blah, blah

I read an article about stupid reasons celebrities come up with to explain either their time in rehab or being caught doing something illegal. The Kevin Spacey one is priceless, this dog thing that Tatum O'Neal just came up with is great as well, I need to write it down. How about Eva Mendes saying she went to rehab because she was researching a movie role, Kirsten Dunst saying she also went because she was depressed and Steven Tyler saying it was because he needed to rest his ailing foot.

Puh-lease! :rofl:

I think it's sad. She is clearly in denial about her drug usage - the death of a dog can be traumatic of course, but life is full of trauma which a 'user' can't deal with hence they turn to drugs. Even people with all the money and resources at hand have trouble quitting this addiction. What hope those without it?


Refusing to use the spellchick!

I have put you on ignore. No really, I have, but you are still ruining my enjoyment of this site. .
