When a Problem Comes Along, Demi Moore Must Whip-It
What kind of number did Ashton Kutcher play on Demi Moore that left her in such dire straits? She has more money than God and what's her drug of choice? Coke? Ecstasy? Charlie's angel dust? According to TMZ, the actresses' friend called an ambulance Monday after Moore lapsed into semi-consciousness from inhaling "a dangerous amount" of nitrous oxide, better known as whip-its.
For those of you squares who think Reddi-Wip is only for Jell-O, whip-its are small metal canisters containing nitrous oxide used for recharging whipped cream cans in restaurants. This is barely a drug, let alone one befitting a movie star of her caliber. It's for bored teenage hop-heads looking for cheap thrills to numb the hell that is their lives, not the actress who played world-class druggie Jules in St. Elmo's Fire.
And while you're at it, just say no to whippets, too!
I can understand if you are a stoner who tries whip-its once to form their own opinion, but stooping this low for kicks is insulting coming from a top-shelf movie star. Moore is giving A-list celebs with substance abuse issues a bad name. You would have never found Judy Garland huffing PAM from a paper bag. Nor would Elvis have been caught dead sipping beer through a straw to heighten the buzz. Belushi mainlining NyQuil? Please! (Forgive me for only citing dead celebrities. Lawsuits aren't my thing.)
Kutcher, who one night after his ex was taken to the hospital was seen partying at a Bruno Mars concert in Brazil, was not available for comment.
