Once a celebrity, always one... even if you are forgotten for years, all it takes is one good juicy tidbit, and you are back in the spotlight. Joyce could tell you that better than I could, I bet.

Branded for life whether you want it or not.

People make mistakes. Lesson learned. Hopefully.

I don't know.

Mistake is defined as a wrong action attributable to bad judgment or ignorance or inattention.

I'd like to believe that people make mistakes not because of bad judgement but because of ignorance but the truth is...it's often bad judgement...which means...they're stupid.

Isn't 60 a little old to be learning the lesson about drinking and driving? I would say she never learned it and is probably too set in her ways to learn it now.

Yes, some mistakes are stupid mistakes, and some are not. But bear this in mind, she was a very popular and well paid actress in the days when she did "Three's Company", and she's been out of the limelight for a long time. Perhaps those glory days were something she never could repeat, perhaps she was out of money, deep in debt or suffering from some sort of pain. Sometimes when people know their best days are behind them, they turn to drink or drugs, it's a common enough problem. And it might seem better to them to be drunk than hurting all the time. People are flawed and have weaknesses, I know I do. So I don't feel so all-fired ready to condemn someone who falls from grace like this, because sometimes life can get a little hard to bear, and I believe in giving someone like this a second chance. Some of them learn their lesson, some don't, but if you can pull someone's head out of their butt and make them a productive person again, it's worth the effort.
