It really should be higher. The amount of drugs these stars do is just crazy.

My thoughts too. Talk about high risk patients.

In the immortal words of Homer Simpson

Let's just say that fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug was the drugs.

Some of the pics I've seen of her makes me think Bear Claws were like a drug to her too.

Dean Cain on ex McCready's suicide: 'I'm not surprised'

Olivia Barker, USA TODAY9:41a.m. EST February 21, 2013

The actor says their engagement ended because of lies, not substance abuse.

A famous ex of Mindy McCready's is speaking out.

Dean Cain, who was engaged to the singer for about a year starting in 1997, tells People, "I'm saddened to hear of her passing, but I'm not surprised."

Apparently, it wasn't drugs and alcohol that ultimately forced the former Lois & Clark star to break off their union, but McCready's manipulative, dishonest behavior. "She was never abusive or addictive with me, but red flags were everywhere," he tells the magazine. "I saw all the bad signs and told her to get out." To escape the situation, he had to leave his own home for a hotel. "Everything she did was a manipulation of sorts. She would just get combative."

"I can't paint too pretty a picture," Cain, 46, adds. "She would start arguments, start drama. Things weren't allowed to be good."

Cain, who fathered a son with a later girlfriend, cut McCready out. "When I did speak to her, truth didn't come out," he says. "She was kind of poisonous and not somebody I was going to have in my life anymore or anywhere around my son."

As for McCready's sons, Cain is heartbroken. "My first thought was of the poor kids. To think about the legacy those boys have been left, it's just tragic. ... All her troubles were self-inflicted. She had everything. She was a tremendous talent but everything about it was a waste."

Guy couldn't wait for the body to get cold before trash talking her to USA Today. Real classy.

I was shocked when I learned Hank Williams didn't live to see thirty. He looked fifty in every picture I've seen of him.

I'm fairly sure her body's been cold for a while now.
