The Courtney Love Diaries

Courtney Love is clean and sober and out promoting her new tell-all memoir called "Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love." In the book she talks all about her past, including Kurt Cobain, daughter Frances Bean and her famous drug addiction. Here's more:

Now sober for 15 months, Love writes that if she could, she'd put "a black page in this book and just write 2001 to 2004 across it," because "I was on drugs and nothing I wrote made any sense."

Love says another troubled star helped her seek rehab and get clean.

Love was holed up in a fancy hotel room in Beverly Hills, doing drugs, when Mel Gibson and addiction counselor Warren Boyd knocked on the door.

"Mel kept coming to the door with this cheesy grin going, 'Hi!'" Love said. "I just kept looking at him going, 'Blank off!' … I know him and he's a nice guy, but it just didn't matter who it was. It could have been Jesus. I didn't care."

But the men doing drugs with Love recognized Gibson and left with him to get a cheeseburger. That gave Boyd the opportunity to get into the room and coax her into rehab.

Mel to the sober rescue. Somewhat ironic isn't it? Well let's hope Courtney stays sober for Frances at least.

This is from my local (seattle) craigslist of someone who went to her booksigning today: "Wow, I tried to get your attention there for a second. I thought a book signing was one of those ordeals where celebs/authors crack a fake smile and make quick small talk with fans, shake a few hands and ask how you want your book signed. No, this was where you hand security your book with the name already written down on a post it note, the signing spot pre-picked for you and the bored celeb signs it begrudingly while avoiding any form of acknowledgement that someone just bought your book and waited for your frickin autograph. Bummer, and I thought you might be fun. Maybe it's the clean and sober bit? hmm. "

I do not believe a word Courtney Love says. I would never even skim the book she "wrote", let alone buy it. However, it is nice to see her pretending to be sober again.

Well if I was Seattle I would certainly be making my way to meet her. I don't think she killed Kurt but she certainly didn't help the cause. I've heard about how smart she is, I would love to talk to her for awhile clear or not. lol Interesting ppl interest me and she's way more interesting than say Reese bore me to death Witherspoon!

I live in Seattle, and you couldn't pay me to go see her. She is the grossest of the gross and she has everything to do with KC being dead. And then she used his death for self promotion. She is a vile, useless person. I hope Frances is able to get far far away once she turns 18.

I agree that selling the catalouge sux, but she gave some quote somewhere that she was flat broke & about to apply for food stamps to feed Francis Bean & she had to do it. I know she was broke b/c blew all her money on drugs but at least Bean is being taken care of... & yeah, she looks pretty trashed in these pics...

If you live in Seattle, she's signing her book at the UW bookstore on the Ave tonight. Thursday • November 2 • 5pm Courtney Love Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love (FARRAR, STRAUS & GIROUX) Book Signing University District Store One of the great provocateurs in modern music stops by to sign copies of her new book, a multi-textual memoir of her life. Outspoken, ground-breaking, and always interesting, Courtney Love has lived her life in the public eye, but Dirty Blonde gives readers a look at a private life we have only speculated about. Signing Guidelines: * Courtney will only be signing. * A special signing ticket is required to get in the signing line, available by purchasing Dirty Blonde from University Book Store. * Courtney will ONLY sign Dirty Blonde. No other books, no memorabilia. * No posed photographs.

I knew Courtney from SF way back in the day and she is definitely not clean right now- totally getting loaded. She looks much better and does not talk so slow when she is sober. To bad, though she is somewhat annoying she is very smart and deep down a sweet person.

I agree Jinx about the catalogue thing. thanks to her we will now her Kurt's songs in commercials and tv shows. Kurt would've hated that. But in all fairness if selling those songs helped Frances have a good life I believe he wouldn't have argued too much really. I read somewhere (maybe here?) that Frances is interested in fashion and design and Stella McCartney has been helping her out in that regard.

I'm confused to her involvement in his death. If she was involved, she shouldn't have killed off her songwriter. ;) ~Procrastinate Now! Don't Put It Off~ (Ellen)

lpyle LOL! When they flag you it takes you back to the top of the blog with a little comment box that says they will have to review your comment for approval and until then it will not appear. Sometimes it is random and other times I think they are looking for key words... consider yourself lucky.. your comment can sometimes show up like hours later and in effect get buried... :)
