The Young And The Restless: Rehab Update!

Awww. Usually I'm glad when someone goes to rehab, but in this case it makes me a bit sad. From the Associated Press:
Sean Young has entered rehabilitation for alcohol abuse following a weekend outburst in which she was heckling from the audience at the Directors Guild of America awards.

The 48-year-old actress was escorted from the ballroom at the Hyatt Regency in Century City Saturday night after sparring with Julian Schnabel, who was nominated for "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly."

"Actress Sean Young voluntarily admitted herself yesterday to a rehabilitation center for treatment related to alcoholism," a statement from Insignia PR said Tuesday. "It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years."

I'm sure it's the best thing for her, but if being a rummy was the cause of her long history of nutty nutballery, well, I'm just the teensiest bit disappointed that it may all soon come to an end. There's not that many actors out there who will cause this level of public ruckus at an A-list event; I'm not counting the Lohans and Spears and Hiltons of the world, of course. I'm not sure how Sean Young even got invited to this thing (she famously--and awesomely--crashed the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2006), but I'm sure she provided a lot of sorely-needed entertainment and gossip-fodder for everyone involved. Maybe they can cure her alcholism without curing her insanity? Maybe? Hope springs eternal!
