Arianna Huffington’s Lesbian Daughter Recovers From Cocaine Habit

Posted on | April 18, 2014 | 28 Comments

A couple years ago, Christina Huffington was hospitalized with respiratory problems after she went on a cocaine binge at Yale. She’d been addicted to coke since she was 16. She was also bulimic.

Now everything is OK, because she’s 24 years old and has a job as an editor at — you’ll never guess — the Huffington Post.

Also, she’s dating Sophie Watts, a film producer: “Christina and Sophie have been dating for a while, they’re very happy.”

    And? Unless she’s done something, so what? If she’s a kook and I missed it, apologies.

    I’m sure they’re at least as happy as we are for them.

    What happened in her world ’round mid-May, 2013? According to that link you provided, her output was a near daily affair, and then suddenly nothing since May 17, 2013.

    It’s been my professional experience that the exact opposite is what happens when you have to deal with writers on a daily basis. Considering the cast of characters she’d be dealing with at Zsa Zsa’s House….

    She’s now an editor! Her now exalted state requires no output, only ‘fixing’ the errors of mere mortal journolists to conform with the progressive narrative …

    And on top of that, they get paid very well for their bs.

    The acorn didn’t fall far from the tree. What is it about Arianna that turns everyone around her into gayfers. First hubby, now daughter.

    I never drank because I dealt with wrtiters and artists. Just during.

    Stacy, you’re an absolute inspiration.

    I’m so glad I decided to follow your blog.

    I think my self-improvement program is finally beginning to bear some fruit.

    I think I’ll write a book.

    I just need to get a good editor.

    Be quiet, editor. The question has more power the simpler it is. I’m not buying in to anyone’s self-image in all that and will be doing my own thing. So what the heck, people at TOM get up in arms about lots and lots of things anyway. I’ll share things I found useful. I doubt other people will be disinterested about it. There’s always more learning for all involved.

    If you had had to sleep with the lovely Mrs Huffington, you might not think that taking a walk on the Wilde side was a worse idea, either.

    It is, unequivocally, not within the remit to publish or buy this “self-improvement program”, unless so coerced. By gunpoint perchance? Or perhaps more inconspicuous means…

    Do the lefties ever wonder why so many of their kids are so messed up? Lefties have a habit of making lots of people miserable.

    I gotta cut her some slack, just like Chastity Bono. If your mom were a whacked-out weirdo you’d probably grow up to be deranged nutjob, too.

    Well, it’s a good start to get all the tripe and drivel out of your system like you’ve been doing here.

    The question is whether after you discard the effluent gibberish and flotsam, there will be anything left that anyone wants to read.

    Christopher Hitchens used to recover from drinking on a regular basis also. I believe it was on days ending in ‘y’.

    Heh. I call that Defensive drinking.

    It’s how I made it through school and twenty years in offices with highly-competitive computer geeks.

    The ones who burned out were the ones who only binged on weekends.
