DKW 86 6,398 Posted August 9, 2006 Share Posted August 9, 2006 http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/63656 ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVE: ROBIN WILLIAMS IN ALCOHOL REHABRobin Williams checked himself into rehab in a desperate bid to win a three-year battle with booze that's threatening to destroy his marriage, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. The Oscar-winning actor's drinking was so out of control that he suffered repeated blackouts, sources say, and after he was photographed hugging a waitress in a bar on May 22, his wife Marsha slapped him with an ultimatum: Get help or I'm leaving. To save himself and his 17-year marriage, Williams entered a 30-day program at the Hazelden Springbrook alcohol rehab facility in Newberg, Ore., on July 11. "My drink of choice was vodka," he told a pal. "I would buy two pints at a time, one for each jacket pocket. But I had to be careful. I didn't want to be seen buying liquor every day." Williams told a souce that he hatched a plan to buy booze only at liquor stores owned by Asians, figuring he wouldn't be recognized. He was wrong. The first time he went into an Asian-owned liquor store, the proprietor said: "Robin Williams, how are you? You buy liquor?" All the details are in the new issue of the Enquirer.

Fair warning for those that are sensitive to vulgarity, for this post will need to use some to properly quote the individual involved. Comedian Robin Williams was on the .Tonight Show. Thursday, and used the occasion to make fun of Rush Limbaugh.s recent Viagra incident. To be sensitive to those that might be offended, all obscene quotes will appear in the "Read More" section. Now, to be fair, I am a huge Robin Williams fan, and believe him to be an equal opportunity offender. Even Rush, who has a fabulous sense of humor, likely would think this was funny (video link to follow). With that in mind, host Jay Leno nicely set up Williams by asking for his opinion about the recent Viagra story concerning Limbaugh. Williams answered: "First of all, it seems a little redundant for him to take Viagra. You know, the fact that he takes it he gets taller. (audience laughter)" Williams continued: "I mean, why do you need Viagra? It's a hard thing when he's a big prick already. (huge audience applause)" Next, Williams moved on to more drug references: "Where was he staying in the Caribbean? Club Medicated?" From there, the discussion moved into a homosexual theme after Leno mentioned that Rush was down there on an all boys vacation. Williams responded: "That's code. What do you need to take Viagra on an all boys vacation?" Williams then suggested that Rush was in the Caribbean to go "fly-fishing" as he pretended to use his nether regions as a rod and reel.
