Joey Kovar dead at 29: ‘Real World’ star battled drug and alcohol addiction

0 Joey Kovar dead at 29: Real World star battled drug and alcohol addictionJoey Kovar — the troubled “Real World” star who appeared on “Celebrity Rehab” — was found dead at a friend’s home near Chicago this morning … and family members believe drugs are to blame …
Kovar was 29 years old.

Kovar’s rep tells TMZ … Joey was discovered by a female friend early this morning who noticed blood coming out of Joey’s ears and nose.

The woman called 911 … and authorities rushed to the scene where he was pronounced dead.
Kovar had famously battled drug issues — and sought help for cocaine and ecstasy during his stint on “Celeb Rehab.”

While on “Real World: Hollywood,” Kovar entered rehab halfway through the season for alcohol and drugs, admitting he’d struggled with substance abuse for years. It was a pretty powerful moment on the show.

China Cracks Down On Drug Addicts Driving

0 China Cracks Down On Drug Addicts DrivingOn Monday the Chinese Ministry of Public Security released a statement banning drug addicts from driving. The announcement came after a drug-related car accident in April left fourteen people dead and twenty others injured.

According to state-run Xinhua news agency, “Drug addicts who have not recovered from addiction must apply to have their driver’s licenses revoked within 30 days.” If they fail to do so, their licenses will be revoked anyways.

Known drug addicts will have their application for a driver’s license denied. Authorities are now comparing their database of bus drivers and known drug addicts. All former drug addicts will be prohibited from professional driving.

So far, according to the Ministry of Public Security, 692 people in public transportation, and 744 freight drivers have been suspended for drug addiction.

The Ministry hopes this will quell the number of drug-related accidents that have been on the rise in China.

Whitney Houston – One Moment in Time (with lyrics).mp4

0 Whitney Houston   One Moment in Time (with lyrics).mp4A beautiful song by a great musician. Rest in peace, Whitney.
More here: http://www.WhitneyHoustonHits.info

Sad to see that this great artist has left us at such a young age. She died at the early age of 48. Already there is so much speculation over what she died of, whether it was an accidental overdose of cocaine, or pills and alcohol, or even suicide. In any case it is a huge tragedy, but now is the time to focus on her life and her great achievements.

She made huge hits like this song as well as ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ and ‘I Have Nothing’, as well as ‘How Will I Know’, ‘I Look to You’, and ‘Million Dollar Bill’ (most of these songs can be found at the link above). For her fans who loved her this is a time to reflect on all that she achieved in life.

Michael Marin Commits Suicide In The Courtroom After Being Convicted of Arson

0 Michael Marin Commits Suicide In The Courtroom After Being Convicted of ArsonThis is the horrifying moment a millionaire convicted of burning down his $3.5million mansion poisoned himself in court.

As the guilty verdict was read out, Michael Marin closed his eyes and held his head in his hands before appearing to slip something into his mouth.

Minutes later, the 53-year-old collapsed to the floor in convulsions and died.

The shocking scenes were caught on camera in Maricopa County Superior Court in Arizona, where Marin had been on trial since May.

The father-of-four torched his mansion in Phoenix on July 5, 2009, because, prosecutors claimed, he could no longer afford the mortgage.

Fire Department investigators concluded that the blaze was started deliberately after finding several points of origin throughout the sprawling 6,600 sq ft home, which boasted four garages.

Marin was found outside the burning property after climbing from a second floor bedroom using a rope ladder and wearing scuba diving gear, according to Fox News.

Marin faced 16 years in prison as the charge of committing arson in an occupied structure holds the same sentence as second-degree murder in Arizona.

Footage from the courtroom yesterday shows a shocked Marin covering his face with his hands before appearing to place something into his mouth.

The grandfather-of-two appears to swallow a number of times before taking a drink from the water bottle on the table in front of him.

Minutes later he appears to be struggling to breathe before collapsing to the ground as others in the court rush over to help.

Marin was taken to a hospital in Arizona where he was pronounced dead.

Toxicology tests will be carried out on the former Wall Street trader’s body and the water bottle he drank from.

MCSO spokesman Jeff Sprong told Fox: “Obviously if you watch the video it looks like he does put something in his mouth.

“We cannot verify that at this point and we’re not going to be able to until the toxicology report comes back.

“We will obviously contact family to see if this is something he hinted at doing, maybe he left a note you know, it just needs to be thoroughly investigated then hopefully we’ll find out why he did it and what he did.”

Whitney Houston died/dead age 48! (1963 – 2012)

0 Whitney Houston died/dead age 48! (1963   2012)LOS ANGELES – Legendary pop singer Whitney Houston has died/dead at age 48, representative Kristen Foster said Saturday night.

The entertainer was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. ET) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel despite resuscitation efforts, a police spokesman said.

The cause and location of her death was not immediately known.
According to her official website, Houston, who struggled with addiction problems over the years, sold more than 170 million albums, singles and videos over her career.

Houston was set to appear in this year’s “Sparkle,” a remake of the 1976 hit, which was loosely based on the story of The Supremes. It was her first movie role since 1996′s “The Preacher’s Wife.”

News of her death elicited a flood of reaction on social media, from fans and fellow celebrities alike.

Whitney Houston seemed ‘in good spirits’
Music producer Russell Simmons wrote he was “deeply saddened by the death of Whitney Houston,” while singer Gloria Estefan said she was “shocked we’ve lost the immensely talented” entertainer.

Houston’s body of work includes seven straight Billboard No. 1 hits in the 1980s, including “Saving All My Love for You,” “How Will I Know,” “Greatest Love of All” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go.”

Billboard put her soundtrack to the movie “The Bodyguard” as one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all time. She also starred in the film.

The daughter of singer Cissy Houston, Whitney was born on August 9, 1963, in Newark, New Jersey. Famed music producer Clive Davis reportedly spotted Houston 20 years later in a New York nightclub, signing her on the spot, according to her website.

The singer’s rendition of the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, days into the first Persian Gulf War, earned raves and cemented her place in the American musical landscape.

After “The Bodyguard,” Houston went on to appear in several more films in the 1990s, including “Waiting to Exhale.”

In 2000, Houston earned her sixth Grammy for best female R&B performance and, a month later, she was named female artist of the decade at the “Soul Train” Music Awards. Houston died on the eve of this year’s Grammy Awards.
Her career stalled, however, in subsequent years as she entered rehab for addiction problems.

In May 2011, Houston got help for her much-publicized struggle with drugs and alcohol, her representative said at the time.

In a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston recalled how her mother arrived one day at her doorstep at her daughter’s house with sheriff’s officers and a court order in a drug intervention. She talked about doing cocaine and smoking marijuana.

“(My mother) says, ‘I have a court (injunction) here,” Houston said. “Either you do it my way, or we’re just not going to do this at all. We are both going to go on TV, and you’re going to retire.’”

Houston had a high-profile and tumultuous marriage to Bobby Brown, a former “New Edition” star who has had multiple brushes with the law. The couple appeared together in the mid-2000s on the reality show “Being Bobby Brown.”
Producer Clive Davis steered Houston’s career for more than 25 years, also serving as a mentor.
