[Janet Charlton’s Hollywood] One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction – not hers, but her best friend’s.
Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price.
After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work.
What’s a girl to do?

[Optional] Your advice to America’s Sweetheart about what to do? Keep it brief.
America’s Sweetheart: Julia Roberts
Friend: Elaine Goldsmith Thomas
Drew Barrymore is the sweetheart. Jimmy Fallon’s wife is the BFF. They’re producing partners, besties, and Drew, I think, has been open that she’s slipped up and/or aims for moderation. Also ironic because Fallon allegedly struggles with alcohol
Jennifer and Courtney………….
Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips
Kim Kardashian and her friend, Jonathan Cheban
Tina and Amy
falling hard=rock bottom=30 rock
Best Friend: Melissa Ford
Sweetheart makes me think of Zooey Deschanel who is friends with many actresses who I can see rooming with at one point and she started Hello Giggles with friends….
Mr Jaws says
Sober 20 years+ now. My advice to the “Friend” is to realize that “People only will get Sober when they want to”. If this person addiction is about to kill her then “Keep trying”. Keep in mind “You Have Your Life” and you need to take care of yourself. If the addict is interfering with your life “Cut her out of your life until she does get help”.
Sweetheart = Drew Barrymore
Best Friend = Cameron Diaz
Friend: Busy Phillips
Sweetheart: Michelle Williams
Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips?
America’s Sweetheart: Drew Barrymore
Her Best Friend (may or may not be famous): Nancy Juvonen (wife of Jimmy Fallon)
America’s Sweetheart: Jennifer Anniston
Her Best Friend: Courtney Cox
Advice? Seems she’s done everything she can. If she believes, she can pray…
America’s sweetheart: Oprah Winfrey
Her best friend: Gayle King
Try to find the top, top person in addiction treatment (not one who just babies celebs,) and bring them around when Gayle is also around. Good luck!!!
PS: I wondered why Gayle has looked so different and sad. I didn’t even recognize her a month or so ago! I dearly hope she realizes that she needs help and can get sober soon!

America’s Weetheart: Oprah Winfrey
Friend: Gayle King
I hope this isn’t Paris Hilton
I love Nicole Richie and would be very sad to find this is her.
Emma Stone ?
Not sure about the friend
Short of giving them money and enabling their addiction, really all you can do is be there for them. Interventions and constant preaching are ineffective if the addict doesn’t want to get better. Close the purse strings, keep your heart strings open.
Oh no! This sounds like Courtney Cox trying to help Jennifer Aniston ☹️
the LESS famous friend is the one who has fallen off the wagon and needs help. Jennifer is WAY more famous than Courtney. Plus doesn’t being ON the wagon connote maybe a prior issue?
I thought Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox, too, but Jen as the more famous friend helping the other one.
Oprah and Gayle?
Tori Spelling/Ian Ziering
I don’t think this is right at all but Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez come to mind
They both are super famous.
(not sure they were ever roommates, but I don’t know for sure)
Sounds like she’s done all she can. I think she has to just wait it out now.
Busy Phillips and Michelle Williams?
Sounds like the friend has made several attempts to stop the spiral … after a while you have to walk away. They need to want the help.
Karlie Kloss is not on drugs!

America’s Sweetheart: Oprah Winfrey
Best Friend: Gayle King
Best Friend: Selena Gomez??
Jodie Sweetin & Candace Cameron Bure
Oprah and Gayle?
America’s Sweetheart: Paris Hilton
Best Friend: Nicole Richie
She has never been America’s sweetheart
Reese Witherspoon and Shannon Rotenberg?
Past America’s sweethearts: Take your pick, I guess
Jen Aniston and Kristen Hahn
Jennifer Lawrence, Bestie: Laura Simpson
America’s Sweetheart: Oprah Pal: Gayle King
My random guess that seems to fit: Jessica Simpson and best friend CaCee Cobb who is married to the guy from scrubs.
Oprah and Gail??
