Jane Pratt: ‘I was definitely doing everything I could to get Cat Marnell into rehab’

Jane Pratt

You remember Cat Marnell, right? The xojane.com blogger who famously infused her writing of lipsticks and beauty balms with tales of her own drug use.

Well, Mediabistro caught up with Jane Pratt, founder of xojane and Jane and Sassy before that, to find out if she had any regrets about hiring such a controversial scribe. 

“I was definitely doing everything I could to get her into rehab, which she did do, and encouraging her to get better for herself,” Pratt said in the latest So What Do You Do? interview. ”But I don’t think that her writing about it is what made her do it. I think it’s a lot deeper than that, and writing about it was cathartic for her and helpful to other women who were going through that.” 

Read the full interview in So What Do You Do, Jane Pratt, Editor-in-Chief of xojane.com?

Demi Moore Reportedly Hospitalized for Whippit Use

Demi Moore‘s hospitalization on Monday night for “exhaustion” has many speculating on what could have made her so damn tired. Now TMZ claims to know.

An unnamed source identified only as a friend of Moore told the tabloid website that they were inhaling whippits Monday when the 49-year-old actress had a bad reaction and “lapsed into semi-consciousness.” Paramedics were called, and you know the rest.

Whippits, in case you’re wondering, are small canisters of nitrous oxide. Inhaled, they give the user a quick, giddy high, and are primarily used by teenagers and people too broke to buy real drugs. Also, they can give you a nasty headache. Or so we’re told.
