Houston, we have a problem

According to the always-reliable US Weekly, singer/actress/hot mess Courtney Love is assisting in the effort to get my daughter Whitney sober.

Sources tell Us Houston came to the conclusion that her rocky marriage – complete with infidelity and dwindling finances – was finally over after a dramatic intervention led by Houston's music-biz mentor, Clive Davis (who was prompted to intervene at the behest of singer, Courtney Love who recommended that Houston work with her own addiction coach, Warren Boyd).

Damn that Clive Davis and his trifling ass! You know this is gonna be trouble. Asking Courtney Love to help with your drug problem is like asking George W. Bush to help you drill for the SATs!

Love giving advice on how to get someone's life together and quit drugs. Thanks, I needed a good laugh.

I think that's awesome. Love has been sober for over a year now, my friends, and recovery programs have always known the value of having recovering addicts reaach out to recovering addicts, so howzabout we just back off and give the lady some space.

Who knows? Maybe Love, who is openly bisexual, can get Houston, whose queerness is the worst kept secret in the music business, to get her ass out of the closet, so she stops trying to drug herself to death over the lies she lives with.

But is she actually sober? Because in the last few months, there have been many times she has seemed...ummmm...not so sober.

Really, I hope both of them do get sober and on with the business of entertaining. Courtney is a hot mess, but she's also bloody brilliant, and I wish she could hold it together for a while.

Given that Courtney is a walking Anti-Drug Public Service Announcement, this may be quite positive. Let's just hope Whitney doesn't start wearing baby doll dresses or abusing Botox.
