And The Front Runner For The 2006 Todd Bridges Award Is . . .











Hailey Joel Osment. According to CNN, he has been charged with driving under the influence (and was drunker than Mel Gibson and he's only 18) and marijuana possession. No anti-semitic tirade, however. So sad that he seems to be joining the every growing list of child stars who self destruct. And yet not altogether surprising considering the attention received and the difficulty of growing up. But he was a great child actor, and he will always see dead people (even without the aid of narcotic substances).

Ok, not to condone this type of thing, but alcohol and marijuana use under the age of 18 aren't exactly exclusive to child stars. But when my classmates got caught drunk and in possession in highschool, they didn't even make the local weekly, let alone CNN. Hell, if they weren't driving they rarely even got a citation for minor in possession.

Yeah, I have to agree with Holt on this one. Hell, even when they WERE driving they barely got a slap on the wrist.

Lindsay Lohan, he isn't...yet.
