Even though Hollywood’s Party girls seem to have taken a vacation recently, some say because the economic mess making Americans less likely to think their over-indulgence entertaining anymore, they are still active.
Here is the Top 10.
1. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton can easily be the queen of the Hollywood party scene but even she doesn’t seem to like the headlines anymore.
Ever since her disastrous and humiliating stay in the Los Angles County jail Paris has maintained not only a low profile but is actually cleaning up her image.
She has moved in with her steady boyfriend and spends a great deal of her time working on selling her cosmetics and clothing, and then she is in partying. Maybe Paris has hung up her spurs, maybe not.
There have been reports of her disturbing neighbors with loud parties. The best indicator might be seeing how she does once the economy lifts.
2. Britney Spears
Britney Spears who got caught up in a very public emotional meltdown just a couple of years ago, in and out of California alcohol rehab centers and shaving her head; she was trailed by paparazzi constantly and even married one of the photographers who was trailing her.
Spears also seemed to fade from view as a Hollywood party animal. Britney is not healthy, and on a concert tour, albeit under a tight regime after she was carried away from her home, strapped on a stretcher and admitted to a hospital.
Even when it seemed that Britney would go forever as the party girl of the century, she seems to have left the circuit.
3. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie has to be mentioned along side her partner in partying crime Paris.
First climbing toward both popularity and notoriety on the hit show “The Simple Life” that she co-starred in with Paris, Nicole, daughter to legendary singer Lionel Richie, became famous for her foul language on screen and wild behavior off screen.
Now the mother of two children, Nicole started toning down her act before Paris did.
Arrested several times for DWI and resisting arrest, and recently caught doing another sex video, Nicole was on her way to a bad slide before friends and family intervened.
4. Lindsey Lohan
She did live up to her reputation as a hard partying girl with the debut of her new collection for Parisian fashion house Emanuel Ungaro, by showing super short pink dresses and blazers to be worn over bare skin.
The show, held in Paris’ famed Louvre museum was abuzz when she showed up in a white mini dress and red stiletto heels. It appears that Lindsay still hasn’t matured like the rest of the girls and flashing her panties in Cannes recently seems to bear that out.
5. Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston was once known as America’s “good girl” has a perfect image in the 80’s and 90’s and then her behavior changed. She started showing up late for interviews and photo shoots and even started canceling concerts and talk show appearances.
Because of her missed performances and rapid weight loss, speculation about drug use and problems with her husband singer Bobby Brown began to circulate.
Then on January 11, 2000 she was found to have marijuana in her luggage at the airport but boarded her plane with Brown before authorities could arrive. Houston, having been through rehab, seems to have settled down well.
6. Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore has been one of Hollywood’s naughty beauties for many years, specializing in scandalizing the public with her antics.
Drew, who comes from a famous Hollywood family with it’s own share of past scandal, came to fame when she was seven years old with her portrayal of Gertie on “ET” and reportedly took her first drink at nine, her first marijuana at 10, cocaine at 12 and rehab at 15.
Many of her movies, “Poison Ivy”, “Gun crazy”, “Bad girls”, didn’t help her image, and neither did posing for Playboy or flashing her breasts on the David Letterman Show.
Her last antics were the breast baring make out sessions with Heather Graham.
7. Heather Graham
Heather Graham keeps a long list of men in her life and some women also if the lip-locking adventures with Drew are any indication. Heather has had numerous sex shots and videos taken that appear all over the internet.
Her list of different boyfriends includes Russell Crowe, Heath Ledger, Ed Burns, Pete Yorn, and James Woods.
Heather came from a family that did everything it could to prevent their daughter from going to Hollywood. Bitten by the acting bug early and her career blossomed while her personal life seemed to go in every direction but the right one.
8. Tara Reid
Tara Reid is being called the Queen of the Botched plastic surgeries by the Hollywood press after a bad liposuction procedure a few years ago. That hasn’t stopped the hard partying “American Pie” star however.
Tara was photographed recently in Miami hosting one of her famous $5 parties with free booze.
By the looks of the photos she got a little free coke out to the deal also. Tara’s antics aren’t slowing any as she gets older. She even appears on LA beaches in a string bikini, flashing her belly scares for the entire world to see.
One reporter, seeing the photos of her on the beach said that a night with Tara might not be worth the price of a warm can of Milwaukee’s Best.
9 . Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie may be out to save the world single handedly during the day but she is still a dark force at night.
In 1996 she scrawled the name of her then husband Jonny Lee Miller on her white shirt in blood.
Four years later, at the Oscars she declared loudly “I am so in love with my brother right now”, and followed it up with a very long kiss.
Her vials of blood around the neck with then husband Billy Bob Thornton and her tiger back tattoo are hard reputations to live down. Maybe people would believe if she adopted another 10 kids.
She has been arrested for possession, public nudity, assault and a variety of other charges and on top of this, seems upset that her recent petition to adopt was turned down basically because of her non-mom like history.
Her shows, her movies, her personal life have been a virtual media circus since the day that she stepped on stage. If getting older is supposed to slow you down, someone forgot to tell the Material Girl.
Celebrities with substance abuse problems can readily afford drug and alcohol treatment, but not all of them seek such help.
