Okay, let’s back the truck up on this one. The whole Michael Beasley saga, the one that started with an unfortunate picture of tattoos and apparently marijuana, then ended with him in rehab on account of depressed Tweets, is a little bit different than what has been initially reported.
It makes sense, since we interpreted Beasley’s last correspondences as more “poorly worded exasperation” than “suicidal ideations” (and trust that we know the seriousness of the latter). And as it turns out, Beasley was announced to be in rehab this weekend because that’s where he was already supposed to be - not necessarily because he was smoking.
As we reported on Saturday, Michael Beasley had posted a curious picture on his (now defunct) Twitter account. Setting aside whether you think putting “Super Cool Beas” across your shoulders is a good idea, the larger lapse in judgment here was probably leaving what appeared to be a bag or two of the devil’s weed on the table next to him.
(Oh, and those “white rocks”? They’re freaking Altoids. Duh, people; let’s keep the theories in the realm of sanity, here.)
Before shutting down his Twitter feed, he left three frustrated messages, all of which were adorned with a liberal amount of exclamation points. Fast forward to today, and as YAHOO! SPORTS is reporting, Beasley is now in a Houston-area rehab.
I haven’t watched a single episode of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”, and I’m okay with that. I’m fully aware that if I don’t watch the episode I’ll never learn what it takes to be really successful in business or how to have an awesome combover, but it’s a risk I’m just willing to take.
Of course I don’t have to watch the show to know that Dennis Rodman was recently fired by Donald Trump. Personally, it’s a shock to find out that someone as stable as The Worm doesn’t have what it takes to impress Trump, but hey, it’s not the first bad decision the man has made. Still, even though it was probably pretty disappointing for Rodman to get the axe, his wife and other close friends were thrilled. Now that he’s off the show, they could finally stage that intervention to get Dennis to go to rehab. Too bad he’s refused to go because it might interfere with his chance to attend the reunion show taping.
