Famed party gal, DJ, Twitter personality and porn director Chi Chi LaRue, a.k.a. Larry David Paciotti, announced via Facebook this morning that she’s giving up the sauce, hopefully for good this time.
It’s been well known around the industry that Chi Chi has had occasional problems with alcohol, and she’s gotten sober before a couple of times, done AA, and fallen off the wagon.
This morning in L.A., as she explains in the video, there was an intervention, and she filmed the message apparently in the car as she was being driven to the airport. She says she’ll be going into the famed addiction treatment facility in Hazelden, Minnesota where Liza Minnelli, Calvin Klein and others have done sober stints. As Gawker puts it, as celebrity rehabs go, it’s not super cush. “They offer spiritual and fitness advisers along with rehab counseling, but that’s as frou-frou as it gets.”
“To all my friends that showed up today, for my intervention,” Chi Chi says, choking up, “Thank you. I love you all very much. So, stay with me. Stay a part of my life for a while, and I’ll be giving you updates if I can.”
Here’s the full video.
Get well soon, lady!
