Super Models In Drug Re Hab

Warning: Smoking Hot MATURE Content Ahead.

If you've got issues with good looking men and women in an institutional setting, then you need to go elsewhere.

Everybody else, enjoy this little pictorial series by that genius Steve Meisel that ran in the Italian Vogue this July that's ripped been "ripped from today's celebrity headlines".

Too bad this will never run in the American edition of Vogue, given how uptight, prudish and immature we Americans are.

But man, oh man, what fun the shit-storm of outrage and moral indignation would be if anybody did have the cajones to do this would be.

As Britney, Paris and Lindsay can tell you, Drug Rehab's, like the eponymous "Promises, Promises" have a 90% failure rate.

It's the greatest business on earth, because:

"The customer is always, always, always WRONG."

Which insures that the clientèle will always come back for more punishment for the egregious sin of wanting to enjoy themselves, which just isn't done in our Modern Day American Culture.

Talk about predatory, but that's how business is done in America.

Here's something that works, Ibogaine, which has about a 60% success rate, but you'll never hear about it because there is no money it.

In order to see the pics in their full screen glory, right click on them and select 'view image' and then go back to see more.

Is that spread supposed to sell clothes, Nyc? I used to look at Vogue sometimes in the U.S. when there would be a copy in the gym and I'd be catching my breath between sessions on the Stairmaster, but I just couldn't relate to the whole zeitgeist behind it. It was like trying to understand German humour. Can't wrap my head around it.

I've never worked in a rehab centre, but I did pull a lot of shifts in a "crisis stabilization unit" (i.e. "freakout ward") in Florida. Most of the clients were schizophrenics or old people who had become unmanageable due to dementia. They'd wig out, someone would call the cops, they'd bring them to the CSU, and we'd get them on enough meds to straighten them out or send them to hospital.

We did get a fair number of people the same age as the models in that Vogue shoot. Cocaine psychosis, anorexia, suicide attempts, early onslaught of schizophrenia -- you seem to have been inside the medical system, you've seen the types. They were not anywhere close to as glamourous as those models. Where's the greasy hair, the zits, the obesity? Where's the sound, the incoherent angry yelling or the self-pitying whining?

Ah well, it's a fashion mag, not reality. And Italian fashionistas like to push the limits. Look at the Bennetton ads. But where do they go from here -- Rwanda genocide fashion spreads? Clothes that look nice when you've been hacked to pieces with machetes?

I consider myself open-minded, but being an American somehow, this shocked me!

(maybe not so much the 2nd time)

I also have a schizophrenic sister who is institutionalized and had a few more ideas they could use.
