Days after slamming the ‘bloids over reports that she attempted suicide, Paris Jackson is lashing out at the paparazzi who she says make her life hell.
"*Parks at gas station waiting for my boyfriend to pump gas* *closes eyes to listen to favorite song* paps take pic and zoom in so you can’t see that i’m parked and accuse me of falling asleep at the wheel," Jackson tweeted.
She continued: "When will this stop? This past week it’s been nonstop bulls—t. I'm so sick of it."
On Monday night, Paris also appeared at Netflix’s The Dirt premiere with her boyfriend, the musician Gabrel Glenn. She looked stylish and relaxed.
All of the attention—and the rumored suicide attempt, and subsequent reports that loved ones are trying to get her into therapy—comes on the heels of HBO’s searing documentary about her late father Michael Jackson. In it, two men say Jackson abused them when they were children.
Several family members have come out objecting to the film and Paris is among them, but she has also said that it simply isn’t her "role" to defend his legacy anymore.
Wendy Williams is getting real about her struggles with drugs. The Wendy Williams Show host revealed on Tuesday that she is living in a sober house to help understand the struggle that fellow recovering addicts grapple with.
Williams explained: "And even today, and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. When you see me come to work, glammed up, right after the show I go across the street/ I do my pilates. I told you, two hours a day... to take care of my body. And you know I've had a struggle with cocaine in my past. I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don't know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped."
Williams told her audience that she realize that others aren’t as lucky and she wanted them "to know more of the story" because she knows that there are others that "have been struggling."
HER AVERAGE DAY
She said she reports to the house after work, meetings and hitting the gym.
"After I go to the Pilates and go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area, I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help," she continued. "They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle. It’s been really interesting, this ride."
Before she opened up on the show, Williams revealed that no one else knew what was going on besides her husband Kevin Hunter.
"Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here," she shared. "After I finish my appointments … I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family. … We talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m., lights out by 10 p.m., so I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you. So that is my truth."
The revelation comes after she returned to the show after a two-month break that she previously said was due to Graves disease.
She concluded, encouraging fellow addicts to call the organization that she and her husband founded to help fellow addicts. The Hunter Foundation 24-hour — 888-5HU-NTER – is available if they need assistance, she said, revealing that they've already helped to place 56 people in recovery centers.

A Game of Thrones plot twist has forced star Kit Harington into therapy, he reveals in a cover story with Variety. The 32-year-old also reveals his struggle with life in the white-hot spotlight thanks to the fame he has achieved through the popular HBO show.
"It wasn’t a very good time in my life," he said. "I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world, when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there — like I think a lot of people do in their 20s."
He admits that he hit rock bottom when his character Jon Snow became the focal point of the show. "My darkest period was when the show seemed to become so much about Jon, when he died and came back," he explained. "I really didn’t like the focus of the whole show coming onto Jon — even though it was invalidating my problem about being the weak link because things were about Jon."
He added: "When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f—ing terrifying."
He began grappling with severe anxiety, and ended up going to therapy. "That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people," he said. "I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone. I had to feel very grateful for what I have, but I felt incredibly concerned about whether I could even f—ing act."
Nowadays, Harington is doing fine. "It’s like when you’re at a party, and the party’s getting better and better. Then you reach this point of the party where you’re like, it’s peaked," he said. "I don’t know what I could find more from this. You realize, well, there isn’t more. This is it. And the ‘more’ that you can find is actually in the work rather than the enjoyment surrounding it."
The final season premieres April 14th. "HBO went balls out, I think is the term," he joked. "They could have easily set the same budget as they did for season 7, but they went bigger."
"It was a huge heave of emotion. I’m just blubbing," he said of shooting the final scene. "The end of Jon’s journey, whatever that may be … I was satisfied with how his story ended."

Andrew Rannells is opening up about why he left the Catholic Church. In an excerpt from his memoir, Too Much Is Not Enough, the Girls alum says the trouble started when he served as an altar boy at Our Lady of Lourdes in Omaha, Nebraska.
"My retirement from the altar came just as my interest in it disappeared, but my relationship to priests was just about to kick into high gear," he writes in an excerpt published in Vulture.
Rannells writes that as he struggled with his homosexuality and a man who he refers to him as "the forty-year-old," he says that as a result of the assaults, he felt isolated and his grades slumped. He was encouraged to talk to a priest during confession.
"I sat across from him in a dark corner, our knees touching. He grabbed my neck, as expected, and I started to talk. I started to try to explain what was happening with me, but I couldn’t make the words come out right," Rannells recalls in his memoir. "Instead, I started to cry. I was so embarrassed. Father Dominic squeezed my neck harder, and he grabbed both my hands with his free hand. His hands were like baseball mitts. We just sat there while I cried."
"He finally said, ‘It’s okay. You’ve done nothing wrong.’ It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but it still felt nice. He stood up and pulled me up with him. He hugged me tightly," Rannells continues. "I felt safe and heard and understood. Then, with unexpected force, he kissed me. On the lips. He muscled his tongue into my mouth and held the back of my head still. Then he released me and made the sign of the cross on my forehead. He smiled."
He says he tried to avoid the priest for the rest of the year, but that his mother invited him to his graduation party. "At some point, Father Dominic needed to leave, and he asked if I could show him out. I knew what was coming, but at this point, I didn’t care," he writes. "I had performed and received numerous sex acts with a man I didn’t care about, and I just walked around feeling damaged. … We stood at my parents’ front door and said our good-byes for the final time, and then he grabbed me by the back of the neck and forced his tongue in my mouth. I just stood there and let him. I didn’t kiss back, but I also didn’t move. He smiled at me and walked to his car.
At that point, he says, he decided to leave Nebraska and the church.
