It’s been a couple months since Tila Tequila has been on the blog, so you have to figure that it would take a doozy of a mishap to get her back on here. So here’s a story about how Tila was hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm, then nearly overdosed on drugs and tried to jump out of a window. So yeah, she’s doing about as well for herself as you could really hope for. Page Six reports:
“Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation, broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out,” the source said.
“Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance and she was taken to the hospital.”
Tequila, who is known for her work as a model in men’s magazines and her reality show A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, was kept in intensive care for a week.
“It’s sad to think she may have some permanent brain damage,” the source said. “She still can’t fully speak properly.”
The source said Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, was released and will check into an outpatient program.
I took a lot of potshots at Tila back in the day (why am I talking like grizzled forty-something war vet?) but ultimately, there’s something just inherently depressing about someone whose desperate, all-consuming need to be famous would drive her to complete and utter insanity. Sure, you could make the case that she was perfectly sane and just acting out for attention, but would any truly sane person do the things she did just for the sake of a calculated promotional campaign? Someone get the poor bitch some help.
