KAT & Lynnelle: Is Bobbi Kristina Brown In Danger?

This is a touchy explosive subject which we hope will expose light to a dark one. What do you do when someone you care about is in an allegedly abusive drug filled relationship? The person that you worry about is showing all the signs. The following is a list of clues of symptoms taken from the National Council On Alcoholism and Drug Dependence:


Warning Signs Of Drug Use
  1. Physical and health warning signs of drug abuse
  • Eyes that are bloodshot or pupils that are smaller or larger than normal.
  • Frequent nosebleeds--could be related to snorted drugs (meth or cocaine).
  • Changes in appetite or sleep patterns.  Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Seizures without a history of epilepsy.
  • Deterioration in personal grooming or physical appearance.
  • Injuries/accidents and person won’t or can’t tell you how they got hurt.
  • Unusual smells on breath, body, or clothing.
  • Shakes, tremors, incoherent or slurred speech, impaired or unstable coordination.
  1. Behavioral signs of drug abuse
  • Drop in attendance and performance at work or school; loss of interest in extracurricular activities, hobbies, sports or exercise; decreased motivation.
  • Complaints from co-workers, supervisors, teachers or classmates.
  • Unusual or unexplained need for money or financial problems; borrowing or stealing; missing money or valuables.
  • Silent, withdrawn, engaging in secretive or suspicious behaviors.
  • Sudden change in relationships, friends, favorite hangouts, and hobbies.
  • Frequently getting into trouble (arguments, fights, accidents, illegal activities).
  1. Psychological warning signs of drug abuse
  • Unexplained change in personality or attitude.
  • Sudden mood changes, irritability, angry outbursts or laughing at nothing.
  • Periods of unusual hyperactivity or agitation.
  • Lack of motivation; inability to focus, appearing lethargic or “spaced out.”
  •  Appearing fearful, withdrawn, anxious, or paranoid, with no apparent reason.
Quoted from:

Recently Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's husband posted pictures on his Twitter page of a arsenal of weapons and threatened Houston family members. He also demanded on Twitter that they send Bobbi Kristina's first inheritance check of several ($1,000,000 from Whitney's estate estimated between $12 -$20 Million). This situation escalated to the point that Pat Houston (Whitney Houston's sister in law) got a restraining order against Nick Gordon. Pat Houston is also the co-executor of  Houston's estate. Bobbi Kristina has posted pictures on social media exposing her shrinking frame, looking unkempt and wearing miss matched shoes. To their defense, Nick and Bobbi Kristina defend their actions loudly on their perspective Twitter pages denouncing all that oppose them in their eyes and saying that they are right and the "haterz" are wrong. Their animosity toward Pat Houston keeps growing while being recklessly displayed on social media. In what world is his behavior normal and healthy? How can the family come together and work through explosive issues? Can Bobbi Kristina get help? Is she being taken advantage off? Are her and Nick Gordon abusing drugs? Is Nick Gordon abusing his influence on his wife who is the off spring of two known drug addicts: Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown? There are so many questions so I asked Lynnelle (who has been in recovery for 16 years her thoughts on the volatile situation. What can we all gleam from this tragedy to make communication and healing better and possible in our own families. Below is the video:

Is Erin Andrews Polarizing Fleeting DWTS Fans?

Random sighting of Erin Andrews in Beverly Hills yesterday. Although I'm NOT covering DWTS at rehearsals, as I have said repeatedly if the cast crosses my path in Beverly Hills, I will definitely photograph them. I didn't watch the premiere of Season 18 but I did read and hear the rumblings on Erin Andrews' voice. At first I thought it was a little over the top until I actually listened to her voice. It is not to my liking but some people don't like my voice or speech pattern. DWTS Season 18 fans seemed to be more against Erin Andrews as the new co-host than for her replacing Brooke Burke Charvet.. I wonder what the producers and Conrad Green are scrambling to do? I don't get their constant desire to prick and preen the show. They try to be everything to everybody which is not very wise. The younger demographic isn't the bread and butter to the show the older more mature crowd with money is.

DWTS Punches Fans By Knocking Out Pro Tristan MacManus

The Executives of Dancing With The Stars have made a series of changes in hopes of gaining viewers for Season 18. Fans already know that Brooke Burke Charvet, as well as the Harold Wheeler Orchestra have been fired. This morning it was revealed that Tristan MacManus was not in the regular Pro Line Up. That was a shocker that I don't think any fan of the show saw coming. We all know Maksim is back but why leave Tristan out? WTHdoubleL toothpicks!!!!!!!!!!! The above pictures are from the last time I photographed MacManus leaving the rehearsal studio. We hadn't seen each other for weeks so his expression was priceless. I could say more but I'll let the Tristan MacManus and KAT TALES TV videos that we collaborated over the last several seasons speak for themselves.
I don't know exactly how many videos we made but they were fun. Knowing Tristan has been a wonderful experience. DWTS will not be the same without him.
