Many of you reading this probably assume Tila Tequila is a fancy cocktail. She’s a bit hard to categorize…but I’ll go with reality star [remember the infamous A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila – MTV’s dating show where the bisexual Ms. Tequila had male and female contestants vying for her affection] slash ‘video’ star [please don’t make me elaborate] slash musician [I’m not ashamed to admit I crank one of her songs but it’s too obscene to tell you the title or most of the lyrics so I’ll keep the specifics to myself] slash model [personally I think she’s gorgeous so she definitely deserves that title].
Last week, Tila was hospitalized with a brain aneurysm. Police responded to an attempted suicide call by her male roommate where it was discovered she overdosed on pills. She’s only 30 years old. I remember reading in an interview that she first tried heroin when she was 11. That’s pitiful. Being a slave to drugs for two thirds of your life, I can’t even imagine.
So Tila’s a train wreck. Her antics that have landed her in the tabloids these past few years confirm this. However, this is a serious medical condition! She’s lucky to be alive and it doesn’t sound like she’s out of the clear yet. As I was scrolling through the comments on another site covering this story, I was horrified at the vitriol. Newsflash: just because you [appear to be in the eyes of some] promiscuous, a drug addict, ditzy, or any other unflattering description does not mean you “deserve” bad things happening to you or that you should “just die already.”
Those people should be ashamed of themselves. Tila’s life is not worth more or less than anyone else’s. How people can be so cruel is beyond me. I know that I’ll be saying a prayer for Tila tonight. Here’s to hoping she makes a full recovery and gets her life on track.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
