Selena Gomez Gets Frank About Her ‘Difficult Time’ Before Rehab & Reveals She ‘Can’t Stand’ Social Media!
Selena Gomez isn't afraid to get real with her fans.
During Wednesday's panel for her Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why, the Hands To Myself singer candidly revealed why she felt so connected to this project about teen suicide. Go on!
In regards to her own tough high school experience, the A-lister shared:
"I think that my [own] high school experience was amplified. I wouldn't say it was worse, but it made it harder... Whether it was just kids or growing up in the biggest high school in the world, which was Disney Channel, it was also adults that had the audacity to kind of tell me how I should live my life...It was very confusing for me. I had no idea who I was going to be, what I'm still going to become."
Fair, fair. Of course, the start of production for 13 Reason Why came right as Miz Gomez was starting her 90-day stint rehab, in order to deal with her own mental health issues. And while the former child star was initially passionate about executive producing the project, she's since developed her own personal connection to the story.
The triple threat continued:
"To be frank with you, I actually was going through a really difficult time when they started production. I went away for 90 days, and I actually met a ton of kids in this place that were talking about issues that these characters are experiencing. Whether I like it or not, people have seen a lot of my mistakes and I had to use that as a good thing, because then they're able to trust me. I want to be a part of this, because I think this is what they want, this is what they need."
Still, despite being the most followed person on Instagram, Selly G struggles with the constant attention she gets thanks to social media. In fact, Taylor Swift's bestie "can't stand" social networking! She noted:
"I can't stand what they're looking at and what they think is reality. There are 17-year-old's that look older than me and that freaks me out. We're just so disconnected from people now. Teens just really want [a connection]."
You can say that again!
Nonetheless, we're so impressed with how Selena has taken in her own tough experience and turned it into something influential for her fans. Snaps!

After everything that has happened, Scott Disick is still looking forward to a bright future with the eldest Kardashian sister!
“Scott is confident that he can get Kourtney Kardashian back after he finishes rehab. Whether it’s true or not remains to be seen,” a tattletale tells Hollywood Life exclusively.
Quick recap: Scotty was recently admitted to rehab after months of heavy partying and trysts with young girls. Is he finally beginning to man up?
On the other hand, the 36-year-old Kourtney “thinks he is a drunk mess and not fit to be a parent without supervision,” as told to People by a close source.
The ex-couple are parents to Mason (5), Penelope (3), and Reign (6 months), respectively.
More about ’em!
Dr. Phil's talk show has basically become a platform for him to hold interventions for stars in need this year, and it seems like he just had another blowup.
Apparently, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor says that he felt like Dr. Phil simply wanted ratings, and even issued a statement on his exit, saying:
"My illnesses and addictions are a daily struggle for me, and I am committed to working on them for the rest of my life. A big part of that is focusing on positivity.
I'm the first to admit I've messed up, a lot, and I've hurt people I care about and who care about me. When I was in that seat, I felt that Dr. Phil went for the jugular, talking about some of my recent mistakes, with no build up. I felt that he wanted me to lay the darkest parts of myself on national TV right from the start, and I'm not willing to do that."
However, Nicholas did thank Dr. Phil for his work helping people with issues, as well:
"I want to acknowledge all the good Dr. Phil has done for people, famous or not. His production has spent millions on helping people turn their lives around."
Well it's nice to cover your bases, but we're sorry you felt so uncomfortable!
Get well soon, Nicky!

Well, it seems Kim Richards has the support of at least one person!
Following Kim's previous stint in a recovery facility, the former RHOBH star spoke out, but this time, she's saying:
"I spoke to Kim – she just got out of rehab. She sounds like she's in great spirits. She's just trying to find a place to live and move forward with her acting."
And Brandi even shared in her New Weekly magazine column that she didn't leave rehab early, but was just finished with her program.
Kim also echoed those sentiments when she recently gushed she was "doing well" with her sobriety.
We can only hope this is true the second time around!
But what do U think?? Are U buying it?

Kim Richards has flown the coop!
On Tuesday, it was reported that after a 30 day stint in rehab Real Housewives of Beverly Hills celeb has left rehab.
In case you forgot: the Housewife had a drunken meltdown at the Beverly Hills Hotel back in April which lead to the TV personality's decision to enter rehab.
However, it's said that the reality star packed her bags this weekend and left the Malibu facility in the dead of night. Huh?!
Though the blonde beauty finished rehab after a little over one month -- it's said her motivation to leave was because she didn't get along with the treatment center's staff and doctors.
Regardless, things had been going well for the former RHOBH cast-member after a happy family visit over the Fourth of July weekend.
Nonetheless, Kim is set to appear in court for her pre-trial motions on July 16 -- so perhaps she's just leaving to prepare for her legal troubles?!
We hope this exit from rehab means that Kim is doing better! Fingers crossed.

Buffy Star Nicholas Brendon Checked Himself Into Rehab For The Second Time This Year After Smashing A Window With His Bare Hands!
We just hope he's getting the help he needs!
Lately, Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Well now, he's at least taking action.
Recently, the sci-fi actor has checked himself into rehab -- for the second time this year -- following a bizarre incident where he smashed a window with his bare hands.
According to police, on July 3, Brendon allegedly got into an argument with a woman which lead him to punch said window.
After the thespian fled the scene, firefighters arrived and then discovered him in an alleyway with bloody hands.
The troubled performer was then taken to a hospital and no arrests were made.
Three days after this incident, Brendon admitted himself into a treatment center.
As we reported, he sought professional help in June for problems relating to depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse.
We wish Nicholas the best with his recovery.

We really hope he stays with it!
Rob Kardashian reportedly checked into a rehab facility in Palm Beach over the weekend.
Celebrity bodyguard Mark Behar claims that the 28-year-old has finally listened to his family's wishes and wants to get help.
According to Mark, Rob is now part of a 60-Day program where he will battle his alcohol, marijuana, and cough syrup addictions:
"He told me ‘This is it, I just need to stick with it and do this.'
Rob will probably lose 10 to 20 pounds within the first few weeks by just being in rehab and daily programs relating to his detox."
While weight loss would be a positive outcome from his stint in rehab, what we're most hoping for is that he fights off his addictions.
Only Rob can really help himself out of this hole, and we're so happy he's finally taken the first step towards doing so!
