READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Note: After this interview taped, Monday, David Cassidy was ordered to spend five years on probation after pleading no contest to a drunken driving charge in Los Angeles.
Singer and songwriter David Cassidy may be best known for his role in the famed 1970's sitcom "The Partridge Family", but during his most recent adult years, the former teen pop-star has become equally infamous for his struggles with alcohol.
Despite immense professional success, during a "Piers Morgan Live" web exclusive Cassidy revealed that drinking may have ultimately destroyed his personal life:
“The greatest regret I have is that my son does not trust me any longer and he's obviously - he's been living with his mother and being around her and is influenced to some degree, I'm sure”, the 63-year-old told Piers Morgan, speaking specifically about 23-year-old son Beau Devin Cassidy. “He'll come back and I will come back with him once he knows that this time it's life or death.”
Following a separation from Beau’s mother, ex-wife Sue Shifrin-Cassidy, the man famous for the 1970's hit "I think I Love You" found himself in rehab for substance abuse.
“If I take another drink, I'm going to die, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I'm dead. You know, they say it's a slippery slope,” said Cassidy. “It's not a slippery slope. It's from 12 to six on the clock and the whole face is ice.”
Arrested for driving under the influence on three separate occasions during a four year span, Cassidy is transparent and realistic regarding the magnitude of his situation:
“One sip, one drink, because there is no such a thing, not to an alcoholic,” he told Morgan. “You have one and you're - you're done. I'd be done.”

David should stop blaming his wife for things. First of all, his son is old enough to make up his own mind. Secondly, David had a girlfriend long before Sue filed for divorce, and Third – A tiger doesn't change his strips and he probably had multiole women throughout his marriage. I became a fan at 10 years old – now 52 – no longer. I don't think he ever was really a nice person. If you read his book – in his hey day, he made women bark like dogs.
I'm with you Ann....I've been very devoted to David my entire life and in return he has disappointed us all and repaid us with horrible performances and disregard for human life.
I wish David the best always and I sincerely hope he means what he says.
I feel bad that he has a disease of alcohol, as I would for anyone, but he has the money to have hired a driver or pay to go to the best of rehabs. Was he speaking on behalf of Altzheimer's Disease as part of his community service from his first DUI? I was at his concert last year, which was a free concert (Was this also part of his community service for his DUI). I don't know if he was drinking or not but he definitely didn't want to be there and wasn't very nice to some of the people up front. I would have rather had him cancel if he was drinking or sick – but maybe he had to do it as part of his community service – and if that is the case then you should do the best you can – but maybe that was the best he could? If the stress was too much to deal with regarding the money from the Partridge Family days then is it really worth it? I don't know if he really knows how to deal with real life or how be kind to others and not narsisstic – maybe some of that is because he got too much fame and adoration at a young age but there comes a time that you have to get that the world does not revolve around you. I know that he feels bad and hurt that his father was never around and was jealous of him but we all have families issues that we have to deal with. And as much as you would like to not get old it happens to all of us. But he has been blessed with so much – he should be grateful for those blessings. It's hard as a fan to really look at who the person is but he is just a person with flaws like everyone else. But you have to base things on facts. And driving while drunk – it was a blessing that he didn't kill anyone else or himself.
Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. ( taken from the 12 steps)
His list must be endless, so much harm caused.
Not only bark like dogs but there was emotional abuse with these women, more than people realize.
I was left emotionally battered and wanted to die
Thank you for this post. I like your post, but have to disagree about his book. His book is a fantasy into what he believed, not what actually had happened-There were not 100's of girls at the studio-I know I lived, right around the corner from that place, saw him everyday for 3 and a half years and no, it wasn't a part of what was going on in the 70's. He smoked cigs and another thing (roach clip dangling from his ashtray) and drank back then but claimed he did not. His staff was also calling the cops at every chance when fans would find his home either up in the laurel canyon or in Encino so none of that other stuff was going on either. Sorry, but this David Cassidy is a 40 year, self throwing pity party in action, has been for a long time and now the hounds have come to his door in retaliation for all the non-truths spread over the years. Check out and find out how his father, who was so concerned about his welfare and his truancy from school that Jack made sure David was under contract at Universal Studios pre Partridge Family to give his son some stability and a reason to not drop out and be a druggie-(Do not call his dad an alcoholic either, he was a social drinker and the fire was caused by the fireplace and rug that caught fire). Goodness sake. Glad he has got into Rehab-A Little too late. Dude needs to come to terms with his stories and with his self-Not a Rock Star-More Like a plain, TV generated former teen idol.
You have some proof where the fire started? All of hollywood reported Jack as being a drunk. Check it out and those are what has been reported, no reports of Jack being a "social drinker". And you know different because? And what it have to do with David trying to overcome alcohol?
David signed with US in 1969 after they saw him in a play...4 performances but it was enough to sign him. There were newspaper reports/tv reports of the girls outside the studio, there is even some footage....all lies?
I too have been a fan for many years, I will stick by David because he has brought so much joy to my life. Not just with his career but through all the fantastic friends I have made around the world through being a fan. Its sad to see my idol like this, but he will bounce back, I am sure of it
STAY TOUGH DAVID , THERE ARE LOTS OF US WHO WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER THROUGH THE GOOD AND BAD TIMES ,ALWAYS
David we love you and know you can get sober again i am 52 and have been a fan since i was 8 i had the pleasure of meeting you in aug 2012
It's apparent he is not sincere, an addict has to stop placing blame on others and accept personal responsibility. So very sad, was a lifetime fan. Just sad.
Replacing Piers with Artie Lange would be an upgrade.
An irrelevant iconoclast replaced by an unrepentant degenerate addict would be a perfect programming choice.
Alcoholics like to blame others for their misery, so they don't have to face their truth. Fan for years but I experienced him being cynical, bullying and down right disrespectul to people at concerts. He looks very sad but at some point how we have behaved or treated people comes back to haunt us. Alcohol is only a symptom of the disease, the disease centers in our mind. David look at page 52 of the Big Book. It precisely describes the way we live in our disease!
s an mouthpiece who also likes to blame everything on some imagined illness or allergy. Man, if this guy is so allergic, what took him so darn long to figure it out-44 years amigo!
He is full of it! Where ARE all these girls/women he made to bark like a dog? The ones he said he took advantage of in back of the alleyways of Burbank during his heyday? He gives himself way too much credit. Most of his adoring fans were girls, not women-it was the 70's, girls did not know these things. I think he complains too much and all for attention. He screams and yells at a celebrity show, he continually has hurt his fans, he lies to them for profit on his book of fabrication, he yells profanities at his concerts and his go to person ready at the helm with every dumb excuse of ' he took meds and was allergic' ' he just came from rehab and backslid after a deposition'-Really? How long did he swig and at what bar? I agree, how many times ya gotta play that old scratchy record? Fans will always be fans, but this guy is a loser plain and simple. He took advantage of each and every young persons love and support and uses this drunk as a skunk excuse AGAIN. PFFFT.
In answer to a question: Yes David had to do a lot of public service when he was on 2 + year probation for the Florida dui that would explain the many little country or county fairs he gave a concert at, in addition to the teen idol tour where he presented it therefore he was paid a bit more of the profits not to mention he needed the bookings. His concert schedule is on shaky ground now-he is labeled in essence a huge liability and a has been. Pretty sad seems he has lost his beautiful voice, he has lost his looks. I was a huge fan back when but outgrew the peter pan complex in order to grow up. Sad to see this.
When on earth was this filmed? In between his so-called in house rehab and then outdoor rehab to fool the courts? I only ask as it sure does seem he is lit to the gills here, don't call it medication, he's addit/no ... he is allergic to that as well. Adios, Piers couldn't have done a swan song any better than booking this actor
David, I was a fan of THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY when I was a kid. Not really a huge fan of yours individually, that was my little sister. But you are a part of my childhood, someone I've always looked upon fondly. I'm now a middle-aged woman & just want you to know that, even tho it appears that some of your fans have given up on you, there are still a lot of folks like me who just wish you well & are pulling & praying for you. Danny turned his life around, so can you. Look at Robert Downey Jr. – he could have been dead many times over & he remade his entire life. You can do this as well, David. I truly believe that what happens to all of us is mostly of our own making. We attract the blessings or hardships we all go through. You need to focus with all your strength & love & power on getting well. NOTHING is more important. Then you can be the father your children need. And the partner any woman in your life deserves. And the brother & son to your loved ones. YOU are the answer. PEACE & LOVE to you, David. XO
Thanks Concertgoer for your reply regarding Concerts done as Community Service for Florida DUI. Was David's speaking engagement on Alzheimer's Disease also Community Service or did he do it on his own time for his Mom.
And I agree with Friend – It does seem like he is on something...
I would bet his son has not turned on him because of "his mother's influence". I would think it has more to do with the disrespect he demonstrated when he was parading his girlfriend around all summer. I attended a concert in Chicago and he had her perched up on the state like a little trophy. In fact when he was arrested in August, she was referred to as his fiancé. I think a lot of sons would turn on their dad's if they had a fiancé on the side. .
I think he used it, the ALZ/mother passing away excuse to garner more sympathy when he was on a toot except he was using the dying mom story in concert for years before she actually passed away and he was behaving badly back then. Then he behaved badly in Las Vegas and again another excuse and this celebrity show and he behaved badly then too and again yet another excuse. All one has to do is look back in time as to who and how this divorce came to pass. They were both emotionally and physically away from each other for years-He had his condo, she had hers and they rented out their former home. He lost his condo, she moved to CA. His new gal pal was already listed in the internet as far back as June 2013. She probably might have done the interior decorating for that condo he lost, would make sense, same area. So shocked to hear that whisky soaked voice. So beloved and so lost.
Sue was there to help him and get him out of one of his previous deep despairs and he also knew her way back when...what a great way to say thanks – bring on the other woman and women... He didn't like what his father did to his mother but he did the same thing to his son.
The history of Sue and David does go way back to around 1972 in UK and he then ensconced her when his 2nd wife had to come back for an emergency to the US in the 80's when she then found out about a bun in the oven that he denied until paternity suit. He had his man ways while in Vegas, that's not news. I am surprised his wife kept face for so long. He shouldn't involve them in his problem. They stuck it out. his son went off to college and decided to go home to mom. Mom is helping with her son's music, what is so wrong with this? I think it is good influence. fini
I believe Sue loved him very much. I remember David saying, she was with him at his lowest point and that had a lot of weight. Now he says the same thing about this gal. Really? David is like the roaring tornado in everyone's life. He makes messes everywhere and expects everyone to clean it up for him. He abused fans and family for so long. It doesn't mean they don't love him but they are not going to love him to death. Shame on him placing Sue and Beau in a position to be the bad guys in the scenario. David is narcissistic. I was told by my sponsor, I didn't know the difference between a bottle of booze, relationship or money. David is in that same place.
David–You were once the most beautiful man on earth. I will always be a fan forever but please, please, please get the help you need and be strong!! Forget about the past and GO FORWARD!!! God has given you another chance at life–TAKE IT and accept it!! Your fans only wish the best for you but if you continue to spiral down we will all be sad once you pass. You will be dead forever and that's a very long time. LIVE LIFE NOW!!! GET HELP!!! Love you always! xo
Poor David Cassidy. So let me get this right, there he is, looking tipsy in studio with Piers Morgan on a Monday morning in New York when he probably should have been in Los Angeles fighting harder for his life in his DUI hearing. No wonder he got 5 years probation. So was this a public service announcement or what for his pending DWI in New York? Got to get real, David. Blamed booze for his 1st marriage break-up, blamed it for the 2nd break-up and now the 3rd? Tell us, David, when you are going to stop lying about everything? Tell us, did you do this to curry favor with the Judges? Your Get Out of Jail for free card? Stop blaming the world and everybody in it for your problems. You are the keeper of your life and you threw it away basically. You used and you abused and now you want sympathy? Forty years too late, David. This was a terrible acting job by the way.
Alcoholics can't tell the truth from their lies. They web so many lies at some point they can't distinguish what, where and whom they told the lies to! Note this, he should be in jail and it should be a felony. Also note this: he isn't lucky because he really didn't get a way with anything. there is such a thing as KARMA and his road is a disaster. He is the actor described in the big book. "he sets up the stage, he is the director", when people don't do as he says, he becomes the Jekyll and Hyde. He will retaliate or use charm to get his way. that is David. It all catches up at some point.
I was at mohegan sun one night and I heard the music coming from the Wol's Den. It was David Cassidy. What a site to behold and it wasnt good. You looked like a lounge lizard literally and if that's entertainment then I guess my standards are just too high. I have no sympathy for you. I have seen the aftermath of a drunk driver in the ICU's where I've worked. You are a very lucky man that you did not hurt or kill someone. Scoop up some brains off a road sometime and then you will understand what its like. When you see a mother turn off life support on their child that was hit by you. Then tell me about you gonna die if you drink another drink. You should be worried who you might kill besides you. You are pathetic.
Thanks you Crissy for sharing Your experience in working with the affects of drunk driving. I said this once on his fan page and oh my did I get it from the faithful DC club. It is a serious disease. I have been sober for 29 years and I have seen the affects that drinking takes on the people. Sad states of affair. This disease affects everyone!
As a former fan I despair at this man's inability to accept responsibility for his own actions, to try to divert some blame onto his son is reprehensible. He should have made a go of it with his wife Sue, she had stuck by him for years but has obviously had enough of his self pitying nonsense.
As for David singing the praises of his latest girlfriend and how much she is supporting and helping him, well, as I recall on one of his earlier DUI's she was apparently in the car with him when he was arrested, cited as his 'fiance' although he is still actually married, what was she doing allowing him to drive under the influence, whilst sitting next to him, very supportive – not!! Shouldn't she have been driving and not drinking herself if David 'had to have a drink' for whatever reason.
The report was that he was going to take his fiancée to her family for dinner, but he was in town for a horse meet. Takes money to keep those ponies. Put 2 and 2 together. Fran is right he seems to use whatever is convenient as his excuse. His son probably stopped caring years ago. He went off to college. Cassidy has been doing this ever since he realized he could crap on people and lie to get his way, 1971. Stop drinking-ok, what about everything else? Reports in the past alluded he was doing prescriptions, hence the so called radiator arm burn. He cries for his son, what about his daughter? Forgot, he dismissed her AND the mother by his lies=Didn't happen, crazy fan, not my kid, lied to his wives-Did he ever really apologize to anyone for his behavior? Or just blaming the drink? Poor Excuse.
'...If I Take Another Drink, I Will Die...' . Anyone hear from him since this was aired? He is obviously so thick tongued and seems three sheets in the NY morning already in this sad interview spot. Blaming his wife in order to get sympathy from his fans and turn them against her like so many other times with so many other ex wives. This is a sad attempt for yet another what someone else said another self pity party. He got that sliding off the clock from the Mayo Clinic...I'm sorry I ever supported anything of his. Still into himself, no thought given to anyone else.
WAIT JUST A MINUTE HERE. He says he has never had a drug problem. Anybody read his stupid book? So who is lying? I too am done with the idol worship of 1 David Bruce Cassidy. Yea he looks drunk in this show, slurring his speech schlippin on the schlopes. I'm glad his lady has now moved closer to Madhatten so she can care for him, will take a lot of money. Good luck.
This guy is full of chit. He is once again using his slowly sinking lounge lizard status to use his wiles on his son through the media who he was NOT much of a hands on father. He did not parent his daughter and was not much of a parent to his son so he shouldn't use innocent people to garner the sympathy his so craves from his small fan base. What is it down to now? 125? He angered Nancy Sinatra, he has angered a lot of yous who paid great amounts of money to see him just to get the bums rush from him. Lot of dim bulbs out in Cassidyland-Enablers each one of yous
If the concerts were for Community Service from one of his DUI , he should of instead been giving a trash bag to collect trash from the park or cleaned up in a hospital on a ward with cancer patients or people that have been hit by a drunk driver-maybe this would have humbled him some. But to be given Community Service of doing what you love – that's not going to teach him anything.
It's the game some play, Ann. You know how they maneuvered his DUI and then the DWI is still being "worked out". Since he can book himself right into any small concert venue, this is how he got such a light community service gig, he got himself booked just by saying he had contract obligations, he used the Alzheimers approach because his mother passed from it, he even used the Davy Jones death and Dave Madden death. He didn't know any of them that well, Davy Jones only through the horse set and they filmed at the same studio but not at the same time ever, was not close to Dave Madden at all and I'm sure Dave is looking down not too pleased as he HATED to dress in that Tutu Fairy Godmother get up for PF, David site put that photo up like a slap. He isn't dumb, he also knew the best way to fight or at least show cause was to in fact get himself into Rehab before any court date to deflect any extreme penalties and jail time. Except it didn't work in Los Angeles. Ask yourself this. If he is in such a locked down Rehab, what was he doing out and filming Piers Morgan? There is no lockdown, he has been obviously outpatient all this time if at all, had concerts, had TV shows. I think he should have served his community time in the Morgue. Maybe Sue had it when he DUI'd in her free car. Look how long he has got the courts tied up, first DUI he claimed he was not drunk and strung it out, 2nd one he is still fighting and will not serve or pay fines because of the area he lives in NY and he has links in the community and so does his lady. One day I'd like to see the printed story of how he got fired from Little Johnny Jones-The REAL Story and how he had a knock down drag out with one of his Ex's at The Firestone Mansion one Christmas season.
It is true about the physical beating up of one of the wives. He got all crazy at a campaign fundraiser and kicked his ex wife in the back, and head. She had several years of physical recover. He left the event and didn't show up home until 3 or 4 days later. Probably went and found some woman to pity him and take care of him. They hushed it up not for David but the campaign event. They didn't want it to get messy! It wasn't the first time he had abused his ex wife.
So when he says he has only been drinking it since 2002 that isn't truth. What is truth is he has been doing this since being declared a teen idol, way before that according to others bio books and the people who had known him in teenhood. Thanks Loveen for supporting the true
Firestone story, I know of what I speak relating to him. Maybe one day all concerned will start clamoring for a spot at an interview and clear up some of his loose ends. Ever notice how he picks women who can get him to where he wants to go? He ditches them when he has lost the use of them.
he is always abusing everyone around him. He doesn't value anyone. I heard first hand from the ex wife he cause harm to and not only once!
His ex is not the mean crazed woman he made her out to be in his book. she is actually a very dignified lady who works very hard. This is how he uses people. He gets his fans against his ex's, he tells wild stories and these fans just eat all this stuff up. He is a fabrication onto himself. He knows his fans will believe whatever he tells them, keep that old dog and pony show going. This is the saddest part of all because when he was younger, he was a good and decent young man, but fame took over and he made himself out to be something he never was. For years he hated the stigma of his TV show, the same show that kicked him into the universe of idol worship. Now the same hands that fed him, he wants to sue now for more money. That ship sailed years ago. I think this is why he drinks now. He knows he has made his bed and maybe that past is coming back to haunt him.
I read on Davids' page from time to time. I remember back in February 'he' stated 'he' was happy in his 'sober life', come March he looked wasted at The Mohegan Sun Casino-I had to leave, it was a shame, he could no longer sing. This interview, he looks disheveled and drunk. There are too many reports of this that and everything in between. I just don't believe him or in him anymore. He is worried for him, what about that person he could have killed or maimed for life? I don't think he stopped drinking, just another excuse to get off easy on dui court hearings.
What happened with the ex-wife – Was that wife number two – and is that why is doesn't talk about her – I have only seen a comment once from him about her saying she was crazy. Wow – I didn't know about the physical abuse. They really kept that hush hush – Had I know that I would have not been a fan way earlier. I bet if there was social media back in the day he would never have any fans left long ago.
I'm so surprised someone is speaking of the ex wives! I think I can answer that. She dumped him for lying and being very abusive. He laid up with one of his brothers when she booted him out. There was baby 1 during their tenure and then baby girl 2 in Italy, now a supposed third down in san diego. She bankrolled a lot of things for him including that romance album and a few of the horses. He in turn buddied up to her ex husband. Also paid so the first ex would not lose her home. This #2 is the 'crazy one' he spoke about in print and in a few interviews. I have met her, she is so nice and so regal. Nothing crazy about her at all. I guess all are crazy when you do not support/defend/cover/beard for him.
that is David...make all look bad, I am the saint. don't buy his crap at all!
I have never really heard any of his wife say anything really bad about him? Did he pay them all off or did they take the high road.
took the high road for a very long time....
After hearing about the abuse I really have no respect for him. I feel bad for his wives and his son and daughter and whatever other children he may have. What ever happened to his relatonship with the daughter of Wife #2?
He pay a woman? Surely, you jest! They ALWAYS paid for him-their homes, their cars, their money for children support, their property for his playtoys. He'll probably go for his soon to be exes money. She has it, he does not. He buried assets on his albums the wives paid to produce. He re-released them and kept the monies They had to put up front money in past to secure his work performances in the theaters he was and is such a liability. So his turntable keeps going with another bank account to front money for his concerts. He is nothing more than washed up.
I wanted to see if there were any updates as to when the interview in its entirety would be shown. I wanted to see if Mr. Morgan got irate and called David on the carpet or if David walked off? I think it is noble he wants to get straight, but do not know how he plans on doing this if he is under some influence right on camera? Is it just the drink or is he using up on something too? He was so cute back in his day but looks sadly like an overworked and overstressed old man, He could have just gone off to rehab no announcement needed on national television and look so badly. Now we have commentaries that are just as entertaining, Well his actions caused all these reactions so good for him to invite everyone and get happy.
I don't think any of his ex's ever have spoken out in an interview against him, they moved on and rose above it, lesson learned but certainly enough eyewitnesses to bear fact of his hostility and ire against the very women AND the fans he said he loved. Some of us know as we have either witnessed this or spoken to the ex's and they confided. He burned his bridges. He used people, he used women, my god he could get into financial ruin and drag his wife along with him, this is not right, then he adds insult and brings in yet another woman, no wonder she bailed and no wonder his son lost respect for him. His son is finding his own way. e should bolster him, nurture him and not be so darn bitter.
Here is a quote made from his current girlfriend made back in February in response to a woman that posted on his facebook that he had taken her virginity at 15 years of age and then threw her out of the room. Maura made this comment and then quickly deleted it. There you have a look into this woman's mind about what she thinks of young girls that get taken advantage of in their attempts to meet their idol
Maura Rossi: Sandy why would you blame any man for taking what you didn't want to keep for yourself. You said he didn't know you were fifteen. Shame on you..you went to his room thinking whatever..it didn't end the way you wanted to. And now you blame him because you grew up. You new what you were doing take responsiblilty...then you will find peace for what you created.
It is possible to be naïve, innocent and abused at any age when in awe of an idol.
First of all – a 15 year old's brain has not even fully developed especially the ability to make wise choices. I am sure there were alot of young girls he slept with back in the day...and women he slept with during his marriages. Again...it's never David's fault – sad!
No excuse for the lack of responsibility on Maura's part.
Since this revelation has now come full tilt, don't you think he'd be just a little afraid? No time limit on stuff like that, ask a priest
Not much can be done now but certainly exposes some truths.
The accusation from the woman and her experience when she was fifteen is just that ,an accusation. I found of interest his girlfriends totally sick comment that somehow it was the girls fault.
Red Flag...Go to his publicists photos on facebook and pull up her kitchen pic then go over to the Facebook page and find this raiders page thing on his auction. His house is his publicists house? Same kitchen. She lives in the valley and he is supposed in new York. Crock of week old beans.
Why is it so hard for CNN to post the whole interview online?
Amazing how many bitter experts are on this page. Too many comments to read. But if you don't like David anymore why are you all investing so much time bashing him? Pretending to know his financial records..pretending to know all about his marriages. None of you were in the same rooms with David or his wives to know what went down in their marriages. David was open about his alcohol intake yrs ago, especially while making the album-home is where the heart is back in 1975. I don't see him asking for a pitty party in a 50 sec clip. Alcoholics often lead destructive lives...so don't support him, don't support any of them, it won't mean they are not alcoholics because you say so. Hopefully David will stop using alcohol before it destroys his body, if it's not already to late.
Bitter? Relieved the truth is coming out? Yes. Sure there are discrepancies but in truth David has much of the info out there. My gosh he had some article and interview about his money problems. People finally have a voice for what he did to them.
Truths based on what? People went to concerts and did not get to meet him and become angry about it, now get to post anything about him if it's true or false. I've been to a few of his concerts in the past yrs, East Coast mainly. I have seen David act very nicely to people who act nice towards him. I have seen him yell at people who grab him, pull him, interrupt him while he's singing and talking, most by the way cannot hold their liquor at all and behave extremely horrible. i wonder if these are most of the impolite people here. I don't wear the rose colored glasses. He yelled at some to not take pics one time and I felt it was not right, but once asked not to do it you should respect the theater's rules and enjoy the concert. But some kept doing it until he yelled at everyone instead of the actual guilty party. For all of those who've experienced bad times, do try and understand some of us have met him and had good times at his concerts. It helps when the patrons drink Coke instead of Vodka...and most of his concerts have drunks in the crowd, they ruin it plenty. David has not been drunk when I've seen him so hopefully he can stay that way for himself and for his fans.
No interview. He crashed and burned on set, left to go home with his friend, J. Beam
Joe... He walked off or did they interrupt it because of the ghost plain story
Joe... He walked off or did they interrupt it because of the ghost plane story
Is this for real? 50 seconds of a public service announcement, happy fans that got to see their fave guy and all of this diatribe for his problem? I admit the point taken about his recent fiancee is choice. I would never speak for anything relating to such a thing, would be best left ignored, if the young lady thought it was good enough to put into print she should then back it up if she is disgruntled about what happened years ago. I could also admit he hasn't been much of the greatest or kindest person on the face of the earth but cut him a break. He is trying to help himself so the court system will go easy on him. I do not understand it though. Too many different excuses abound where it relates to his in house rehab vs. transitional rehab and back once again to lockdown rehab. Hope he gets well and stays on the straight and narrow. He's not a young buck any longer-Relax, retire for a little while, take time to reflect on things that bother you and shove them out the window. Thousand mile journey begins with one step, David. Step out into the sunshine and smile. Life is life and it begins with you and what you want and need, not what is required.
One would wish he was sincere but .... He has set this up. Maybe in treatment he will find the truth, time will tell. He has abused people and they finally have a voice and we should let them have it.
Oh yea his site does appreciate nor do they like controversial items placed on their page. They are still in 1970 with rose colored glasses. Fact is, he is just what his soon to be ex says he is and he has been one for over 40 years. to the women he has used, I am sorry but like poster above said one is blind, naïve and innocent when one is young encouraged and sees someone like him in their young life. They think they are the only ones. This is why there is a group for women like this, sort of like a 1st wives club but it is for groupies and for the innocents that got taken advantage of. Of course he set this this up. This was not for his fans, this was for him to show the courts since he cant be in 3 places at once or refuses to jet around to all the courthouses and I just bet he got paid for it too, maybe he paid, cheaper than going to jail, doesn't matter. This gig was only for him and his ego and he couldn't even finish it. I checked those sites about his auction for alzhiemers too. What a joke! That was all staged for profit! Going around saying how Shaun was his baby brother but he will sell that picture for at least $1,500. Why is it on his publicists wall? Why did he say that house was his? People are fed up with him. and since there isn't a place to voice it, we can voice it here since he gave us the open door.
Step right up folks and watch former bubble gum star who's light fizzled out 40 years ago. I want to see a snap of him with John Lennon, such a bs artist. I agree ladies, he gave a lot of people nothing but heartache for over 40 years. He 'writes' a book, he sold it and the story is fabrication. He reinvented the same book and fabricated some more. He bullies and taunts. He could take a good lesson from Peter Noone, but he burned that bridge as well. Ticked them all off now nobody wants to work with him again. He has nothing to be drinking about except he never became a wealthy horse owner, and there are bad stories about what he does with that too. He never became much more than an aging bubblegum singer that turned ugly a long time ago. He lied about his father, the very man who tried to rescue him by getting him signed into Universal studios back in 1969. Ironside was filmed there, Medical Center was filmed there, Adam 12 was filmed there and then Columbo which Jack was very much a part of and had money in the production, was filmed there. Don't nobody need to be here, telling any of us who know exactly what is going on with what ex and in what bedroom, with who's money he has used. Pretty pathetic when one ex wife pays off the other ex wife so she doesn't lose her home. Bet he had a fake meltdown on Piers. Be just like him.
Why is his personal problem anyone's business? Why was it so important for him to go on national television and speak of his problem? Joe Blow doesn't get that chance! If I remember he swore up and down he was not drunk and blamed his weird driving habits on his wandering eyeball as he tried to pitch his empty bottle into the drink off the highway. He stalled the court process for a year and at the last minute threw up his hands and confessed. He was on a highway, he could have caused a major pile up. All he cares about is blaming his wandering eye. I wonder if he blamed the same eye when he knocked up all those other girls.
It's true and it is sad. You know he is God's kid and I need to clear that up. I am not saying anything to be mean but what I am saying, is the potential for him to get better but he has to face the demons in his soul and clean up the house. Other wise he will never get sober. He has placed himself in these positions and some of fans have never been able to voice what terrible experiences they encountered with him. I am sure it is freeing for some to let go of the pain.
A 50 second meme interview and at least 7 days worth of counter talk. Estimation is on both parts a huge waste of resources and time. David will not change, he just wants pity, he wants to make sure the women still love him and will support his ego. The one he hurt learned a good lesson-never love something more than you love yourself. I remember a gal who saved up to go over to UK to see him back in 2009. She needed a better car but she spent that hard earned money and went to find him, went to his secret birthday celebration and he snubbed her royally. She came back very hurt and nobody heard from her ever again. this is his fans. This is what he does to them. I used to support him. I support Arboonne now.
Well that sounds familiar. I didn't go to UK but saved for a year. At the concert, I gave him a gift and proceeded to make fun of the gift and my state. He could of just said thank you and thrown the gift away. He somehow believes belittling people gives him power. That was the last time I ever went to a concert.
His comments and jokes had nothing to do with you, your state, or your t-shirt that evening. It was an inside joke meant for someone else.. It is his sense of humor. BTW I have your t-shirt and have put it to good use
really? I was there and he mentioned my state and a city for that fact and stated, who would want to live there? don't excuse his behavior. No misery-baffled with the behavior of a person who has no boundaries.
Yes he did say those things. This is not an excuse for his behavior. I said it was an inside joke not directed to you.
Pam he wasn't in the UK in 2009 do you mean the M&G day in the Isle of White in Nov 2008 or London April 2011.x
I wish I had all the money back I spent on his concerts, etc, too. I guess you are never too old to learn another lesson of life. But like I said before, if there was social media back in the day alot of the bad would have come out sooner.
Oh wow! I think I went to 1 of his concerts when he was hot stuff. In answer to somebodys dumb questions, how did he become so hot when nobody even knew him in 1969 in California at the studios? common sense, his agent placed the girls – it is called pr. He was only barely 18 years old – do you think he could find his own manager then? I spend my money on good things great dinners fine clothing. Too bad for this man – he looks very sick.
Some very enlightening comments. Glad that so many have taken the time to contradict David's version of history, especially relating to his father. It sounds very plausible that Jack Cassidy tried to help David at the beginning of his career, I expect, like most actors, he would have been worried about David wanting to enter such a precarious profession with all the pitfalls and rejections and well as dealing with fame and press intrusion.
David should have counted his blessings, stuck by and honoured his third wife and grown old together, and be proud and supportive to his children in their careers. As we get older we find joy in our kids and grandkids. As it is, I think he will ultimately be alone and lonely because he focusses inward on himself too much, no room for anyone else.
I think his father was the only one who would be instrumental in the Los Angeles studios and with agents as he was pretty busy during the 60's and the 70's and given his background in theater more so than his mother is how he got his foot in the doors. His mother as well as his father was out here in the early 60's for their parts, hers in Perry Mason were filmed in the Los Angeles area the same for He and She. Words fail me to know he; David, was all over the country; San Francisco, New York, when he admits and his friends who have written their own books admits he was here in Los Angeles hanging out drugging and being truant from school. I must say someone should go check out Nanette Fabray's interview on his father. She was with him the night he died, she explains a lot of things about that night and bottom line he was not drunk, he had a nice Italian dinner at Villa Nova. He tried to get out of the apartment, what was left of him was found by his front door so he was trying to escape and smoke inhalation got to him. Sue is a saint for staying with him. He had so many indescretions but that is a part of idolhood, being a star means never having to sleep alone. He best be thankful the only thing he has is an allergy to alcohol and medications according to his publicist and he didn't catch something he could not get rid of.
You are right, Fran. He is the Cassidy by birth, but just the other day his soon to be ex was with his step mother and the Cassidy family for Shirleys birthday. She also was with the family for the holiday season, but where is the Cassidy by birth? Sure seems like she is more on friendly terms with the family than the real family member is. How strange is this. Lots of great reads here and a lot of true stories. Keep up the good work fans friends or whatever you are
Guess his little stunt worked he is off the hook in new York. They adjourned his case. Only in America. So he boffed it, being in this lockdown and now announcement of a new concert with Peter Noone. Bet he's his life coach.
New Concert !! don't think so that has been on his website for months.x
It was a first time offense in new york. He was treated how anyone else would be treated that hired a lawyer
Cassidy has not gotten off the hook in NYC. His case was not dismissed, it was adjourned. If your case has been adjourned, it means that it has been put on hold, he case has been "paused" for some reason. In this case because Cassidy is serving his L.A. sentencing of 90 day re-hab and 9 month program. Once he is out of re-hab the NY case should resume, as the misdemeanor plea his lawyers got it down to.
As a long time fan of Davids I would like to say that all these comments on past events are not helpful. I am a firm believer in the maxim, if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all. The man has had problems, ok, we get that, haven't we all, the difference is our 'dirty linen' is not paraded in the media for anyone and everyone to make comments over. He is a typical man with a huge ego, he is a product of his fame. I guess I compare it to Elvis Presley, no one would ever disagree with him, and we all know how that ended! David hopefully is sincere and I think should be given the benefit of the doubt. Any talk of abuse of wives or anyone else is speculation, as no one who actually knows is talking. He is a talented human being who despite his faults has made hundreds of thousands of girls and for that matter 'women' too extremely happy. He need support for a long hard road ahead...and he certainly has my unreserved support as would anyone who is sick (Alchoholism is an illness) and facing the uphill battle that he has in front of him. I love you David...
I was subjected to disrespectful and inappropriate behaviour May, be grateful you were not.
SPECULATION!!!! Max, speculation abounds by all you fans that SPECULATE AND TWIST AND TURN ALL INTO POSITIVE TO MEET YOUR DESIRES OF WHAT YOU WANT THIS PERSON TO BE!
Tainted. Have you read his books? Nothing is sacred. His alcoholism is serious and he is right, it is deadly. There are facts in the blogg and some comments are not true. It is sad
If anyone read these comments correctly it could be noted that DC's 2nd wife is on Facebook and she does talk about David and such subject are not speculative. David has lied and unsavory aspects of his life has coverups. The fans don't help. He is a very sick man.
Some needs to STOP being the saint in trying to save the former teen idol. This is a scene for his boozing. He started it. I believe he always starts his mess. There are plenty of pro sites out there for you to enjoy and to read with your rose colored glasses. He is no saint, he not a nice person, he has always had a chip on his shoulder In my opinion he used Piers Morgan as a stepping stone for pity and got pulled off. Hell, how can he stay in rehab when he is all over the place rehab in Florida, rehab in New York and now rehab in California and no, it aint no Betty Ford. FYI he has in fact been in rehab in southern California, it was started way back in 2013 as a way to deflect a harsher sentence. All the stars do it. Maybe he will come to the tip of his truths and face his demons head on and start to apologize; to his fans, to his ex's, to himself and to his contemporaries. He has turned off a lot of influential people in the industry, a lot of fans have turned their backs and his very being, his son has lost his trust......and for what? a drink? For a guy who had a not too bad life, he sure has messed it up big time. you know there are long time friends of his that he will not call back-these are concerned true friends who he rejected years ago, they came to try and help him but he rejected them. So he does not want help, he is just acting the part to once again get his way and not have to pay any consequence.
How can a person be a fan and support somebody who has done the very same thing that their fan is accusing others of doing? David Cassidy is a long time alcoholic. I'm glad he still has a handful of fans but it isn't ever going to be what it once was because he burned his bridge. This man has an obvious problem. He will die if he doesn't stop, but did he really have to raise the flag on this? People already know. 1 DUI 2 DUI and then 3 DUI all with a lame excuse attached. The 1st one took almost a year to go through the courts, the 2nd one probably the same as it is still in a holding pattern, the 3rd he got a slap but a stiff probation that will go away once his stint in rehab is complete-or whoever signs the papers. I am not buying his sincerity. It is put on like so many other things he has done in the past. He loves to start things and claim pity me. He had to rag on his son because it is his soon to be ex who helped that son in music-he has a band, leave him alone, do not jump on his coat tails like you did your daughter that you denied to the 2nd ex, which caused her to be crazy and kick your butt out into the street. I cannot wait,,,,,,,,,Who will be the one to spill the beans on his dirty horse trade? He knew zip about them until wifey 2 came on the scene and he seduced her
ASK DAVID ABOUT HIS POPULAR OAK STREET ALLEY. NOT EVEN MAN ENOUGH TO GO TO A MOTEL
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE ALLEY?
I know Wife #2 had a daughter Caroline before she married David. Did Wife #2 have any more children?
She was trying to go through expensive fertility treatment with David only to have someone else having the baby. When papers arrived to the farm David said it was a groupie. Sherry says that David claimed to be separated at the time. Sue is no saint either. Sue was in the relationship along with Sherry and Meryl. Sue and David's marriage has been a business relationship from the start. Sue started a charity that took a large amount of overhead and no one would work with her. This later got switched to Arbonne. I have a feeling Sue burned bridges in the songwriting business. Sue used the Cassidy name to get ahead. Some even speculate if Beau is really David's. He only married Sue a month before Beau was born. There was later a public ceremony with Beau as best man.
Pitys' sake. Cant you behave yourselves? How come you are involving innocent people in his problem? The topic of convo is his alcoholism. How he got that way is unimportant A L T H O U G H I would speculate fans would be the #1 problem. He is not the new poster boy for this, he is not the latest DUI spokes person although he should do a few of those as a good community service. Put his ass up on TV and say Look At Me and then show what he once was. Reality is not kind, but neither is killing someone. Do him a favor, grow yourselves up, do yourselves a favor and look to your own selves for what he has become. I've seen you in concerts, big 50 + year old women acting the fool over a drunk with no talent. Ive seen you jumping over and breaking theater seats, chairs, paying off a security guard to get close to David. He has no respect for you because in truth you have never had any respect for him. No wonder his life is screwed up now! (Rolling my eyes!)
You say behave and yet your own post is good behavior? Not! You've seen 50+ women jumping over theater seats, breaking them, going nuts over a no talent drunk...so how many concerts did you attend to see such things? Why were you at those concerts if you did not like him? Very odd.
She has a son
Holy Cow! I think I will grab 2 fresh Chocolate Eclairs, sit myself back down while the kettle is getting hotter for some nice Oolong tea and re read some of this dishy stuff! WOW! Beau might not be his? Sue was in the sidelines causing trouble while a wife is clueless and a girlfriend is pregnant? Fans hopping over chairs and paying off security guards to get close to David Cassidy in his old age? Holy Cow! The Inquirer has come right to life-WOW! No wonder the poor sot drinks!
I'm going to take a drive down to the Santa Barbara area and I am going to go and speak with his ex wife. She has some beautiful, just beautiful items made with her own hands from her own Lavender farm, the farm I might add David tried like crazy and continues to try to get his mitts on. Not ever in this lifetime. That farm was NEVER his, belongs to his ex, if he had it, he would have lost it. He used #1 and he used #2 then somewhere along the line #3 used him and the persective #4 is fulfilling her dream of being a Mrs Cassidy too via her fat wallet
How do you know #4 has a fat wallet?
Someone knows already where the riche Ft. Laudie interior decorator lady comes from? Guess they know all about her parents who own horses as well, the ones who live close to Shodack
Thought her parents lived in miami?
And her father was deceased?
Schodack not Shodack. Are we speaking about David or everybody else, but him? Chirstsake! I can see why he does drink. I too believe it is his fans who did this to him. Poor Baby
Poor Baby my ass! Are you kidding me! I too believe he has huge issues with his fans but believe me he created this mess.
He's a poor baby. I'd like to nurse him back to health but I just don't have the money he requires a woman to have. He got used by all the women, he is a victim.
I feel sad for him. He truly is a sad soul
You mean to tell me somebody here absolutely said they were molested by David when they were 15? David has better standards than that! He never hit upon a girl, they hit upon him. He was always the one they poked on so he took it-why not? He was into older women. That's why ALL his wives were older than him. They supported him, they loved it and why not? Cougars Rule!
I wouldn't go bragging until you checked out his scorecard. He isn't a sainted former idol. A little man with little man syndrome, any lady worth her salt in thin mints will tell ya he is also lying about that. Have you ever listened to him brag away his HUGE manhood? There is nothing really there, he brags but he needs glasses. Things must be terrible when he brags he needs to take Cialis AND Viagra and then he boozes it up. That's messed. If someone got messed with, the legal law will take care of it. Can't just blame him for being who he is, right from wrong is not very difficult to distinguish from and he was older like mentioned many times before. His Big B Day is coming up, I'll send him his favorite coupon for Tommy Burgers and he can go at his leisure
Shakeandbake: You must need glasses REALLY REALLY BAD!!!!
He sold his florida house took a hit. Happy birthday, you are no Davy Jones
David and his wife purchased the Florida home for 1.1 million. Sold for 3.9 million...not sure how much they spend rebuilding it...so how did they take a loss?
GOODNIGHT, MRS CALASBASH, WHEREVER YOU ARE!
Shakeandbake: You must need glasses really REALLY bad!!!
Oh My...I don't know what goes here, but according to an ex, he does not have anything special in his junk trunk, size is based on his small stature so if he weighed 25 pounds more it really wouldn't be so big. Besides ever hear of those extra parts one can pick up in a specialty store? That's all he is showing. Probably in the "What Cannot Get Up Cannot Get Out" Club now.
You are misinformed
very very very misinformed! That lolly is quite jolly!
That's not what I heard from the horses mouth
Hot Daum Now I know why they are advertising Testosterone products next to his picture here and showing an under developed sweet potato compared to a jacked up sweet potato. Theres the answer. Son of a gun :)
Lot of fans from his UK site I see. What does his thingamabob have to do with his serious problem of drinking? You do now realize that he lost his gallbladder back in 1971 and that acts as a filter of sorts so since he has not had that in his body for 42 some odd years, his liver is quite open to infections, more over than a person with their gallbladder intact. I can see his liver being compromised and then good god what would happen if he needed an operation and his body is reeking of alcohol? They wouldn't be able to operate very well. He is wide open for anything if he needs any kind of an operation. Don't be so funny and say the alcohol will numb the pain and cleanse his body. Quite the opposite. He has depleted his oxygen blood levels. I hope he is being honest with himself and with you, his fans. As crazy as you guys are, he needs true pure prayers and a spiritual hand up. You blame him for things, but you put your own self into his situation. Look how disrespectful you are talking about him and his weenie. You do not know anything. You disrespect his ex wives. What have they done to you fans except go where you cannot. Would you want to go there? They have had such heart break. He is an entertainer, show him respect, pray for him or leave him alone.
I wonder if sometimes his drinking is associated with a medical condition he his having, and if people sometime mistake his medicine intake with being drunk all the time. And I'm not referring to the wandering eye claim. These posts are mainly hideous attacks and you have to wonder why so many would want to spend time bashing him. Go on with your lives. David's real fans wish him luck with his future.
He probably has a seasonal condition. Noticed most of his bad outbursts on stage happen in October and happen in the . Maybe he is allergic to something ie stage dust, equipment dust and that in turn causes a change in his veins, dilation in the sinus area and in the carotid artery area. Perfume and anything else in the ozone layer could trigger this symptom of complete dilation. Some people think they are having strokes when this condition happens.
IDK, but willing to guess a man of his age probably is starting to have issues with prostrate, his pancreas could be very well jeopardized since he has no gall bladder so that exposes his liver as much as other internal organs. DVM
The Concert I saw him at where he was rude and not wanting to be there was in July... and I think that was probably one he had to do for Community Service for his first DUI...
Is it true he stayed in to make whoopie and refused a lunch call from Queen Elizabeth? Is it true he got a personal invite from her to tour her horse stables? Is it true he thought he was big stuff Gina Lollabrigida took him into the bed with a bunch of fruit? Is it true he did all this to a bunch of young girls(and why wasn't I called>?) Is it true he is not really a vegetarian? Is it true he also had a thing with Sally? Is it true he passed out when this interview got started? Is it true Peter no one is his sponsor? Is it true he is taking donatins for his rehabilitation? Is it true he is living in L.A. and not in rehab?
There is no excuse for him. He has been rude and obnoxious for a very long time. One doesn't have to go in order to hear the reports of his animosity and rudeness. I think he did have a great number of community service concerts after his 1st DUI, he got them out together and hated each one-again, hearing about the deplorable rudeness. One of the last community service concerts was up by one of his ex wife as matter of fact. He hates the county fair concerts, but who else is going to hire him? He will try anything to stay out of jail. He will try anything after being a bad ego boy. Bad ego boys never have to pay. He boohooed on his mom's sickness. Did any of you know his mother was in a facility in the Los Angeles area while he lived in Florida? Does that sound like closeness to you? He got her dressed for one of her last photo shoots, but prior and the photo is gone from his site, but prior, there was a photo of where she looked pretty bad off, hygiene-wise. hair wasn't fixed and the clothes looked picked from a garbage bin. He is burned out in Vegas, he burned out his bulbs on stage in NY, pretty sad when the wife has to sign to promise he isn't taking any substance.
I think it would be appropriate to say he got to a point in his life he just doesn't care anymore. Got to ask yourself, all the money he has made post Partridge. Where is it? Where'd it go? He spends so much in attorneys alone, he glided on that first DUI and lied until he could no longer lie, then the second one, he held out on a lie regarding his condo in Florida, he is being a big baby about this Partridge royalty stuff, he won't get anything and just ruined his career more by going up against the big shots. then the third DUI, point is he is paying out money he really does not have. What a pity to be in old age and nothing to show for it except a couple of booking photos.
His girlfriends facebook post...her own words he is in New York City... what happened to 90 days rehab out west according to his attorneys... So did his attorneys lie to the judge for him?

Oh wow – this girlfriend really does not know how to be discreet, does she? Has she ever been with a celeb before? It appears not. She keeps hanging herself with her own rope with all the bragging -acting like a starstruck fan instead of decent, mature partner. She does her "love" no favors by outing him as not being where he's supposed to be. To the ones claiming the people here are jealous? There's nothing to be jealous about..My God...who would want a man that is as sick as this? I wish him health and hope he conquers his demons. I'm a long time fan, but this woman is trouble for him and she won't last, especially if her money runs out. I feel a bit of pity for her but yeah -she needs to STFU.
Yup....I think somebody else pointed out that lie before the truth once again reared its ugly flugy head! He used it to garner sympathy and to get his head out of a noose. He used the oh my wife is divorcing my sorry ass after 20 years of cheats. Oh I think perhaps that information would be best placed into the lap of each Judge. Now they will say "we said he was in transisitonal therapy" – It is ALL hogwash! This time he has his baby to thank for this one – What a smart woman-LOL
He was never in any locked down Rehab! $,5000 in the right direction and he gets a letterhead. Ever see those beach photos of him with his new fiancée? Didn't look like any rehab to me! He pays for others to lie for him and then claims he don't know. nobody in his circle knows a dam thing. He is a loser, he is a liar, he is not worth anyone's time. I wouldn't be too surprised if he did pay to go on Piers and look like a pitiful mess. Only for the courts to get out of his drunken stupor. He was drunk on the darn show for gods sake! Give him the Sarah Bernhardt award for lousy acting. Couldn't even get past the bar without having a bloody maria
See my comments earlier of what his fiancé thinks about young girls meeting their idol in his hotel room. What gutter did he find her in? What a liability! She brags all over the internet about her relationship with him. Put something else in that pie hole instead of your foot!
aqueduct thing was for the wood memorial. that's a pre cursor to the kentucky derby. still thinkin he is big hoo ha. riding the womans bank account loser loser loser
Do you know where her money comes from? You indicate she is the one funding the fun these days. Does she really have a fat wallet?
It is called being an enabler. She has been a long time fan and now got her hoof and mouth in the door to his realm. Shell be singing a different tune when he dumps her. she has been all over the websites lauding it over on everyone who will listen about her relationship. She knew he was married way back when, she did work for them. She wants to be his savior. HA! What does he have to offer her now? nothing! All the monies from songs goes to the son and the EX wives and there are enough of them for a battle if he ever dies. None of them ever remarried. No surprise about her response to a young girl in his hotel room. he STILL was the older one in the group. He knew better, he always knows better but he too waves it like a red badge of honor; having his apple polished through the slats of a gate – he is not well in the head
A HA! some BODY committed PERJURY! Watch them all scramble and say nobody knew what the others were doing. HA! What a flippin Farce! I somehow knew this was a farce when reports start coming in from him and then his publicist. She isn't the best but she knows how to deflect. He is in rehab, he is in transitional rehab, he just got done doing a stint in rehab, he's going back into lockdown rehab AND NOW he is out and has been out galavanting around the sand surf and turf with his new main sqeegie and she in turn is outing him left and right! What a great movie we all get to watch! I do believe someone here pegged it, his own doing. BRAVO David!
I know what happen he was asked to go on the show at last minute and he did and then his attorney called producers and said hell no he under the influence on camera pull him off after attorney got call from him. end of the story. entertainer who does own pr work as bad as man who tries to be his own attorney in courtroom
Can you be more specific about this? How do you know? But I have to admit it does seem odd that the interview is not complete.
I see...This was wrong because his attorneys were in the courtroom the same day this show was aired and while they were in the court that same day, trying to save him by saying he was in a gated Southern California rehab treatment facility, he was actually in New York , being drunk in public. Nex thing you know, they'll be saying he filmed that 1 month ago. Oh Well...Going swimming now
Isn't there a lot of drinking and gambling going on at the races. Great place for the newly sober! NOT!
YeaH Mint Juleps Abound at Kentucky Derby (insert trumpet flag up sound here) and all that cool Kentucky bourbon in the cakes and pralines oh yummy
The Kentucky Derby is The Fastest two minute race, Kinda like him in the sack except he is over after 30 seconds. Look in Google for information on interior designers. Lauderdale is not a cheapo gutter place neither is Mihammy :0
just wondering , how do you come up with all your inside information about David ??? are you a friend of his stabbing him in the back or a jealous friend of Mauria's ...OR BOTH ??, how does one know so much info who is not even a fan ?
Who's Sober? Who's Mauria? Got some wires crossed somewhere in here. Who's a friend of his in here? Who's backstabbing him? Who's the jealous friend? Who'd be jealous anyways? Nothing to be jealous about.
Just like an a hole, everyone has one; an opinion of what he did. BUT someone here is a Jealous Jeannie. Why are you picking on his girlfriend? What did she do to you? Why are you quoting from her personal facebook? She is another innocent soul in all this. I always have known his fans were the absolute meanest and craziest, but never thought it'd carry over to the 21st century.
Not about jealousy. Just stating facts m'am. His mistrrss has been bragging all over for more than a year publicly how she hooked a famous person – the prize. She feels very importsnt at last attaining her trophy. Shes been telling everyone even though he is married and made no move to divorce. Although his wife finally filed after having girlfriend rubbed in her face for years
The girlfriend's post was purposefully made public. She likes to brag. Not sure why. Not much to be jealous about.
Oh.....ok. He is keeping her or just using her? Seems to me he is not the kind who likes a gal who kisses and tells. A bit immature for her old age. Bet she is still a child at heart has no kids of her own so doesn't know what grown up is. Guess he will be up for grabs once he is done with her . Ladies....Start your engines :)
I do apologize for the outburst. So she is then fair game since she is putting her own self out there? Bet he has NO IDEA. Hope she isn't a friend of Widow Jones.
What I find interesting about this whole debacle is that very few women in his life have ever come out after allllll these years and spilled the beans. And you know there had to be thousands. A few groupie stories here and there from the 70s but not much else (that I've seen anyway). And now his DUIs plus this idiot of a "fiancee" have people so riled up it's all starting to come out. I for one will be very interested to watch this unfold.
Can't shut the world up forever. Girls are now women and women have the power to tell their stories of being manhandled and used by a good looking sweet talking idol. I don't think women should be afraid or feel repressed because of shame. He should be shameful. He was a grown man taking advantage of his self. I'm sure his daddy told him again and again, but he thought it was a game, still does. did anyone even know the teen girls had to pass his studio on the way to their high school every morning? they knew and he knew. Yes there were teachers watching after them during regular school hours but after dark, when school was closed and they were still filming the girls would stand out like innocent little fans and they would get taken down the road if liked, for a drive then the tears and fights would start then banishment from the studio lot. Funny as it is but in the start of 1970 he couldn't get a date if he tried, the shag wasn't grown out enough and he did look like a malnourished little truant just out of juvie.
Until now I've not heard of him seducing underage girls although there probably were many who lied about their age to get close to him back in the day and I'm not doubting the ones who say they were taken advantage of, especially if they did tell him their real age... I'm talking about the grown women who have been there over the years as the decades passed. Even in recent years he's been known to pick up fans at his shows but nobody brags about it. People who claim to know Ms Rossi have said she was an obsessed fan who managed to get herself in front of him. She's the only one though who brags publicly about it. Isn't that ironic? He finally finds a groupie who he likes enough to attach to (ka-ching!) and she ends up helping him fall even further down because she can't stop her childish engaging with other fans. Is she really in love with him or does she just want to one-up her friends? SMH.
Maybe the bark was worse than the bite? Meaning not all it was cracked up to be in groupieland and maybe nothing happened. He said he had all these one night stands and no other children? Pipe dreamer? Always seemed to surround himself with men, lived with men exclusively until his best friend moved away when his career went south the first time. Maybe he don't know about her rushing motormouth. Good way to shut him right off and out of her world unless she is supporting him, can't imagine it though. To be with him you have to book yourself into the witness protection program in other words piehole shut and no friends, but if she is rich then it is alright so he can then seduce others, keep them in arms reach, the ones who have much more.
He saw a bank account and she sees a man who needs fixing and she is going to fix him, yea, ok. He don't do braggarts. Does she understand what she is doing? He still has a divorce to go through and she really can get him into more trouble and probably hand him a bill of sale at the same time for services rendered. I just bet you he has absolutely nothing to brag about and if he has been in the bottle for years then there's your answer, he is in his cups. She should be more the lady . Sounds like times are really rough for ol Keith
Thanks all for the delicious juice! If he and his lawyers told the courts in California he is in rehab and has been in rehab, is his rehab the horse racing stables or the lobby of a 3rd rate hotel in New York? I like that kind of rehab. I am very confused why then he went on this show? Did he get kicked off for being too schmaltzy or ? What happened? I hope he doesn't get behind a wheel of anything else. This story of his is whacked! I now hear he is thinking of re recording Jim Croce's Time In A Bottle and Operator..................
I remember him. He wrote a couple of books that were mirro copies of each other. Remember reading something about his co star Dave Madden saying he knows as fact David never took that bus off the studio lot. Property Department would have the key on them at all times. So if he lies about something as trivial as that, what else is up his sleeves?
Rest In Peace, Mickey Rooney. Now there was the ultimate entertainer!
Look out...David was very 'good friends' with Mickey Rooney back in the 70's and during PF...Another one lost and another excuse the bottle will tip up.
Ka-Ching Ha Ha. You have that right. That is all she is to him. The way she is dreamin she won't wake up till her bank account shows a big fat 0 and she finds out he has lovers everywhere !
Ka-Ching Ha Ha Riiiiight! That IS all she is to him, a piece of a bank account. How could he be serious anyways? She don't have red hair! He is V E R Y partial to redheads, no lie. Look at his track record. Watch the hair color change now -HA HA
Just want to thank all who have given very accurate and truthful details of some of the life of 1 former teen idol. and what they went through. Some hairy experiences!! I'd like to know one thing. Why is it that he claimed to have a residence in New York and also in Florida, but in both instances he is always in either a hotel or his woman's residence? I know he sold a home, but this is a man who owns tons of property or so says he. I did check out the detailed tv episode of his phony auction and whoever found it has a keen eye. He did say the residence was his own, he does not really live there, in fact his publicist lives there and more-so do believe the house is owned by Sue prior to marriage. I do believe Sue and his publicist are very close and I'd be willing to bet he is still close to his wife. I feel a bit sorry for the new girlfriend. She has no clue what it means to be his girl. Not easy. He will use, he will cheat and if she don't like his way, tough, she knew what she got into being a fan to begin with. So she writes a book in 5 years, get ready. No matter what gal gets tangled with him, they will reap heavy bad juju hand from his fans. It is true, he has very mean and caustic fans.
Ifeel like i've been reading a lot of comments from a bunch of 15 yr old girls...whatever is going on, it is HIS business ONLY....I am 62 yrs old and have been a fan since I was 17....just wish the man well and hope he gets the real help he needs to get better........
If it is HIS business ONLY, then explain why did he go on an INTERNATIONAL TV show to say what he did?
I agree with Ellie, DC has chosen to make himself look like the victim and share the personal stories of others. He set this up himself
This story is so dead, like his career.
Can anyone answer this question, please? Why did he say that he had tried for the last three months to connect back with his wife who would eventually file divorce? I mean, is he for real? He has been with his latest little lady since way back in April of last year. Was he going to take her too or this another way of letting her down as well? Or is he just full of it once again? His words make absolutely no sense 99% of the time, ok?
HOW COME THERE ARE REPORTS THAT SAY HE HAS NOW CHALKED UP 2 MORE DUI'S IN FLORIDA?
Agree with Elle. Hey, is Danny going to take the bus away the next time???
I would be willing to place a bet to win that his segment did get pulled the moment the producer and director saw he was drunk and on something, that cannot be denied and please no excuse of cold and medicine allergies. Did he care? no because he got what he wanted, exposure for self pity from the NY judge and he thought from L.A. judge. What a pity. Right, if he wanted to get together with his wife why is he still with his girlfriend the same one he was with when he got popped in NY? If his mouth moves any more, he is lyin
Lie vs Truth: He said he gave up and retired at 24. Truth in fact is the concerts dried up and were pulled when his contract at Columbia did, in 1973. All concerts were as one with his studio contract. His Bell label was also a part of ColGems/Columbia. Since he had less than a year left on his original contract, they put him into his 'own' television show, Man Under Cover. It lasted as about as long as the contract did. This was to pay him what was owed on the original contract and any monies for what could have been taken as lost concerts for as long as that contract was viable. Everyone parted company in 1974, he was paid up and off and Columbia upheld their end of the contract. End of story.
Really !! I saw him in concert in 74' plus Man Under Cover didn't air till November 78' after he had done Police Story May 78'
Yea menopausal women trying to be 15 again with their tantrums; don't get their way, tell sorrid details of whatever. He has a problem and yes, I can see why....Crazy assed fans. Did get to meet him, mad he didn't come out and play after a concert. I do not blame him for running away.
QUIT BLAMING THE FANS.
Not understanding about this contract biz I see, Jane. He had left over time on his original contract, in order to satisfy the masses, they gave him Man Under Cover to complete the contract and maybe MAYBE one more concert in conjunction with Columbia. I know the show ran in 1978 – it took less than 10 weeks to do those shows.
Maybe one more concert !! he did a world tour between Feb/May 1974 doing around 35 shows. You are saying he recorded Police Story & Man Undercover in 74 after the recording of the PF ended but they didn't air for 4yrs until 1978 ??
How DARE a person who is jealous of his girlfriend come out of left field and hurt her with words! She is David's business and I hope he is happy to move on with his life with her, no matter what. I hope she is happy to be in his company. She must be thrilled, warts and all and maybe she is the positive influence he needs at this time. If you are his fan, good, continue to support him, if you are just a disgruntled fan who had popcorn dreams of him, get over it. He knows what he likes, he knows how a lot of you are-very detrimental to his very being. Read these posts. God almighty! Bunch of nanny no knocker bitter old battleaxes. Poor man has had a long term problem, and I think he has some physical health issues. He gave his life to entertain you all and look how you repay him. What matters is now. He is in good hands, he will conquer his demons and he will live out the remaining days as a very talented, born into infamy, one of a kind idol that nobody can ever hurt again.
Drinking, drugging, cheating, lying, manipulating, conniving, whining, sure does know what he wants. OMG!
Oh Scaredofyou – this isn't about being jealous of a girlfriend!! Seriously, what are you..12? Take off the reality shield and go back and read what people are saying. Both David and the lady in question have exhibited behavior, publicly, that brought all this out. People who have loved David since the 70s are sad and upset about the way things have gone and they have a right to say so. Been to a concert lately? I would guess not. Also, some who know him, actually know him, are confused and angry at his behavior and sickened by his so called "partner's" public comments and behavior. A celebrity, sadly, has no privacy. Especially not when 3 DUIs are splashed all over the media. Get over your self-righteous name calling and "how DARE yous" and grow up.
He gave his life to do something he loved and to feed his ego – Not for anyone but himself. Jealous – I hardly think so. He has nothing to offer anyone at this point or maybe he never did. To be in a relationship you have to care about the other person and their needs – not just yours. He grew up in a world where he never had to care, share, or think of anyone but himself.
Concerts in 1974?..............................................................................................and this is 2014 now?
You can appreciate the talent he had as an actor/singer back in the day. But, as a person, and how he treats others leaves a lot to be desired. You can be understanding and compassionate to people who sincerely take responsibility for mistakes or tries their best to help others. But to be rude to people who attended your concerts, think you are above people, and the lies. David made this everyone's business when he put it out there in statements he made or interviews he did. And the fact – he drove drunk and was arrested not once but three times with seemingly no remorse or concern for anyone but himself. You basically beat jail time – Count your blessings! Grow old gracefully! If you are sick of your fans or even people in general – Retire, lay by your pool, read a book, watch TV, volunteer in an Alzheimer's Home-not by doing a concert – maybe just stopping in and visiting and not as THEE David Cassidy that you think you are..
AND...there is no excuse for the physical and mental abuse!
One day he will be made to answer to his didoes and what he done to young girls and women as well. He has been in this state for 50 years, read his book. He is sick now. He is being sued because he broke his contracts, on the other hand, he has been banished from big venues. Vegas don't want him, Laughlin don't want him. I am a promoter and wouldn't touch him with a 100 ft pole. He is done here, done in the UK. He can't even take a crap unless the tissue is 24 kt lined
any foundation he opend or a part of, he reaped huge money, like this alzhiemers. his ex wives ex husband is a dr. who has done research on this very thing so who do you think whos nose is up whos butt on this and making a profit. I know for fact his items he auctioned off were seconds originals in his exs hands and that old brown huge trenchcoat people been making fun of? belonged to his daddy. I want people to ask around what he has been doing in the horse world and lying to buyers
SOMEbody has a problem with being manhandled by him years ago . Here is an idea....Take your butt off of here and contact your nearest district attorney office and file to have it against him. Even if it happened 40 years ago they will bring a charge against him – Otherwise, shut the heck up and move on, please! I had him, I was young and I do not regret one moment of it..this news and $5.oo will now buy me a Starbucks. Thank you.
Finally someone speaks the truth and says what we all want to know. Who else had him? Raise your hand please!
No, they will not bring a charge against him "even if it happened 40 years ago." The statutes of limitations have passed.
So Light Bulb, Please clarify for us: You were also an underage girl when he had you?
DID YOU KNOW HE WAS AND IS THE LAUGHING STOCKS OF THE ROCK WORLD BACK IN THE 70'S? HE WAS THE BIGGEST PARTY ANIMAL THERE WAS, BUT HE DID NOT BELONG IN THE BIG BOYS LEAGUE HE WAS TALKED ABOUT BEHIND THE TRUE ROCKER'S BACKS. HE CRASHED EVERY PARTY THERE WAS ON SUNSET BOULEVARD INCLUDING THE DAISY KICKED OUT OF PANDORA'S BOX TOO
Did you know:
His Schlang has been siliconed and rodded up since 1989? TRUE :)
W T H ???????????
Oh Geeze! Just like Liberace
You mean he is SUPER WEENIE?????? A Weenie that wont ever die or go slack? Sign Me Up!
Who are yous to tell him what to do and when to do it? He owes you NOTHING! You go to his concert, you pay for the ticket, he delivers a show. That is all he owes you, it is not an extra way to enter his private life and to complain or suggest what he does in that private life. You do not own him because you supported him for 40 years. You got some nerve to get in here and keep complaining about him using you so what! You knew when you went into his inner sanctum what was going to happen-100's of girls did it and they are not speaking because they got over it 30 years ago. You are just jealous he picked a female that wasn't you guys. big deal. Get over yourselves and leave him alone. Your behavior will not beckon him into your bed again. He is old and he is sick. Let the man heal for goodness sake.
No one is telling him what to do. However, if you pay to see a concert, I expect you to give a good performance and be nice to your fans. I have been concerts where people were not rude and he was rude to them. "inner sanctum" ? wow you have must of been there. People get enthralled with stars and lose their head over them. There are victims I wouldn't be to proud to say I was in the "inner sanctum" with a guy, who abuses everyone, emotionally, physically and pocketbook wise. He needs real help from his drinking....It has effected family, friends and fan. Good for those past fans speaking out. I am sure DC believed no fan were ever expose his tyranny. But they are.
Appreciate that. Thank you for your continued support and love of David. You posted the very best post in answer to the dweebs. Thank you.
wow DBC Dweebs? really, that sounds like something DBC would say.
I swear to bet this is David in the flesh! O I LOVE YOU DAVID! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETHEART!
And I appreciate all the support my fans give to me. Hey DBC bet these silly fans will actually think it's really you and that it's really me posting. Hysterically silly!
what is silly, is that you would think it is all about you. get over yourself
What about his drinking problem? What happened to that story? Sure not his fault if women are so stupid to believe he will take them if they buy him things and go to his concerts 25 times a year. He never asked any woman to get emotionally latched on to him. He is just another guy. He is not that talented. He does not possess super powers in the sack, he has nothing except he is the eldest son? of Jack Cassidy. Now Jack was A Man! All 6'2" of him. Class all the way.
In 2 days I will still love you when you turn 64. I have very fond memories of you when you were barely 20 years old, just a babe in the woods, but for 4 years you were my babe in the woods. We shared a lot of good times together back in the day! Remember hiking past the Crestview sign and getting stuck on the rock up there? Then the time over at Mulholland Dam. We weren't supposed to be there, but we went and cut up making out on the dirt road. I wish we could share one more time of life together, the last time was in fact 2009. How times do fly . I love you, David and always will......................
The problem is that he did ask some to get emotionally involved. that is why some of the folks here are mad as hell and speaking out
Show us the trade papers and the ads where he sent out explicit instructions to get emotionally involved with him. Show us some kind of a recording we can listen to where he begs all the women to get emotionally involved with him. Please show us where he said go and hop on planes trains and automobiles, get rooms in the same hotels and bother the hell out of him until he opens up and lays you down so he can take advantage of you as that was his main goal by being a celebrity, right? Getting laid 1000 times a day for free whilst working on a sound stage, while hooking up for a concert. So you are telling us that this man had it all wrong! He should have charged for that stuff? Would have beat the hell out of working his ass off for the last 45 years and then he should have kept all of you on a leash so you could still be there for him? Even a dog in dog years doesn't last that long, my dear.
I don't know. He was and is a cute guy. I'd give him whatever he wanted and then some. It'd be a pleasure to get taken advantaged of by the likes of him and his lolly ;)
I'd try him out, but no strange stuff and no drinking! He'd have to lay out more than an old used up wild baloney poney cuz I am a lady I am!!
Serious here now. What is he going to do once he is outted as not being sincere about his bad drinking habits? He hasn't been to no rehab except the one between his sheets. I got a strange feeling he is actually very sick and won't be with us for too much longer. Hope you bioches that say bad swears about him are happy. He didn't hurt you. Bet you were having a great time when it happened. you just mad he never called you back. That is life. Be so thankful you were chosen in the first place. He doesn't pick just anybody
Well, you're half right.
I don't think we are talking about those one night stands. Those ones got what they needed and he got what he wanted.
We shouldn't speak of our treasures with the great idol. I have had a good relationship with him from 1970 since I was 14. The friendship has seen a lot but has endured into a comfortable shoe-like life. No demands, no restrictions, just a lovely and fulfilled life with a wonderful man. Perhaps he needs to come back here and be real once again.
I understand what you mean. Very grateful for what he has meant to my life these past years and for that I will be wishing him well
I was 17 and met him at Madame Wu's Garden in West Los Angeles. Dreamy man for sure, great kisser. I am sorry to see he has hit a brick wall so late in life. Maybe it is true, maybe karma has come for him and he don't know what to do except announce he is a drunk. I know he has never lived alone ever in his life, he is the type that needs to be surrounded by a someone. I wish him good luck and cheer without the bottle. I hope to god he is not spotted at the Kentucky Derby coming up pretty soon. Lot of drinks going on there. What a shame.
HA HA HA HA! Of all people guess who we ran into at The Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA.??? Yea HIM and his girlfriend! I guess that must be the new rehab joint. Actually I think he is really up at Dr. Drew's up the road from there. Oh Happy Birthday to go to a cheap place!
Huntington Gardens....right by Santa Anita Racetrack....just in time for race season!
Laine, show us proof he didn't do these things? Really now-
bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom
bom bom bom bom bom
I think I love you
I think I love you
I think I love you
I think I love you
Unbelievable – Not in Rehab – No surprise ... and how dumb to go out in Public – which shows he thinks he above the law and everyone else.
Not when you think you are super Teflon teen idol! Now all somebody has to do is seek him out over at the racetrack or at the hotel and snap a picture-Done deal, no pass Go, Go directly to jail for violation of probation. It can happen! People pay big money for a picture like that.
Why don't all you haters give the man a break? Today is his birthday I think he has a right to do something he enjoys.
Just saw a picture of David and Maura on her facebook page. The picture is recent, yesterday. How is he getting away with this. Makes me sick.
Nobody hates anyone. It is just that he keeps making up stuff and not telling the truth FOR YEARS. He is in lock up rehabilitation, a sad attempt was made for television until he got kicked off after 50 seconds because he was under the influence, but as well has been all over the place; Florida, New York, Los Angeles, bla bla bla...He is sitting right in the box at Santa Anita right this minute and will be there tomorrow. My Snooze Alarm has more truth to it
Total Agree Ellen! Has nothing to do with hating – just wanting the truth and not acting like he is above everyone. How do you not abide by having to be in Rehab?
If he has a suspended rehab sentence, how is it that reports state he was in rehab for only one month when the 90 day sentence was handed down. So how can they take it away and say he already did his in house rehab? He did not! It also might be true he was going to the airport when busted in L.A., but that day there was a horse race event also at Santa anita. Too many photos are coming out now all over. Why did he lie?
Beg to differ. The photo was put up to try and change the course of history. The photo was taken last summer as they were in Cali since Wednesday, staying until middle of the week, court hearings again :) ...The Flag IS Up!
Doesn't matter where they are – he's not in Rehab!
5 star Huntington Hotel-Nice Bar and Lounge
Agreed. Anyplace but rehab. He is supposed to be in rehab, he said he was staying in rehab, going to be in rehab, his attorneys argued he would be overstaying himself in rehab. I don't think going off to new york and back to florida and then off on a lark to California . Far as I know, he ruined his career. and maybe that is what he wants. to be totally left alone and be the man of his own doing or undoing. Seems he did con the courts. Maybe someone should call his po
I'd be all for grabbing a pic of him drinking or doing something other than being in Rehabilitation as he keeps saying he is in. He makes a sick dirty joke out of being DUI 3 different times and blaming everybody from former co stars deaths to former co concert performers deaths to his own mother and fathers deaths, now blaming his son and his wife? when he could have killed people or hurt people or himself. Let us not give him too much credit because he is who he was. He invited everyone to comment because he put himself out in the public for a sympathy gain through the courts. the moment these producers saw what they had, they shut him off-period! Now what he has done has basically shoved his middle fingers towards the judicial system and people in general because he thinks he got them beat, but he does not! He is on a dangerous schlope and it is schippery! Especially when one deceives. Who does he think he is? He is a has-been drunk who lies.
I heard his rehab has already been completed as ordered by the courts (given credit for time served); now he must complete a 9-month alcohol program that is probably out-patient. He is not doing anything wrong by traveling and living his life. There are many definitions and many types of "rehab".
I work with rehab people for drug and alcohol. Two things concern me: If has done time, then they should be directing him to AA meetings. Sad stats here. We get 25 people a month from rehab in AA meetings. Once their time sheets have been completed for their Drug court, they never show up. Sad to say, we had this wonderful woman, sober for her PO time, decided to drink one bottle of wine. Within three weeks she was dead. Suicide. Alcoholism is a serious disease I can't say that enough. No one here wishes anything bad for David but he can mouth all the words that come out from treatment (which he has) but you need to walk the walk. I just keep thinking about his children, family and friends. I believe at one point David did enjoyed his fans earlier in his career, no doubt but he seriously changed. I had a friend her worked in Vegas at the time DC was there. It is a not a nice story or experience she had with him. Frankly he doesn't understand not every woman wants him. "he said to her< "don't you know who I am? I am David Cassidy and women desire me" He was a bit drunk when this happened. "said, oh come on sweetheart, no one will need to know, it will be our little secret"....She said no and he kept bothering her. She finally said to him, if you don't leave me alone I will call your wife and the police.
I bet alot less women will find him desirable now that they know his true self. He respects noone. What else has he done that we don't know about?
Maybe he cannot grasp that he is not commanding the huge venues he once did and now has to be regulated into smaller concert halls or county fairs along with other named singers of his day. The biggest problem I see him having besides the drink is he has not had new material to keep his voice out in the public like say, Engelbert Humperdinck. There is a man who is pushing 80 and still commands the high fee and does not have to share his stage with others. The women still adore him and they do venture to see him in concert. The post above really hits home because I have in fact seen that happen so many times, not just with him, with 98% of the other men. They just do not want to become old and undesirable and with Him, well huge blow to an already over stimulated ego. I know about the Vegas incidents, there were many and there were extra things going on there. I am sorry he has become what he never wanted to become-dried up, washed up, used up and thrown up. I just do not like what he had done here. Looked to me like he used this show to get his head out of a noose and it got pulled off the air before it ever began. He wont change he has to really want it and I do not think that is the case. He is out for his good times-saw the photos taken in Jamaica when he was supposed to be in rehab, his words. That is what it is, His Words. they do not mean anything if there is no truth or substance to them.
I find it highly suspect that he could possibly think out a plan to go off to a rehab and time the stay just so perfectly -way before the actual court hearing in Los Angeles? He was anticipating a long stay in jail so he jumped the gun and got himself into a posh rehab to show everybody he was doing this BUT BUT BUT How could he possibly know what kind of sentence he would get, from New York or from Los Angeles? He could not possibly pull this exact same time allotment when he did not know what kind of sentence he would get. His mouth and everybody associated with him pretty much said he was still going to more in stay rehab, but that is obviously not the truth. He did the old CYA. Stayed a weekend, made it a point to tell all he was doing this because he was going to die when he has been living it up thumbing his nose.
I think some of the ladies here have a real hard on for him. One night stands never cure anything except horiness. Get over yourselves and live it up. You got him on a good day. Think of the ones who got him now and got a limp noodle to work with...Chow Mein for all :D :D :D
Thank you going to Loveen for information for us who have never crossed the AA threshold. He did quote from AA so he knew what he was doing, using the system, the rehab gets $$ and so does he! Whoppee Dooey! Now he is going to rehab AGAIN this month. Sure. Maybe he is going to do a tour of AA clubs around the country, do a little song and dance and then do a little song and dance again to fool you all. He made a mockery of his condition. Nobody gives a flip because he as a performer treated many many of his fans very rudely and horribly, right down to taking advantage of their youth or their dreams of doing him. He used this to gain his sons trust again, how many times does his son have to be disappointed? and then to harbor a grudge against his wife? She stood by him when he kept cheating, she allowed his book of fabrications because any written book is only written to sell the thing-she made a tidy sum as well...Nobody cares and all you bleeding hearts who believe these books are the gospel truth best go back to school and learn real life 101. I feel sorry for the women who got taken by him, money wise, heart wise and body wise. He doesn't care, mr invincible his partridge days have been over 40 years ago.
Can he answer why he was stopped and the cop smelled the booze in his car before he saw he was dUI? He probably will take to snarking the Scope mouthwash next. Not a very sincere person at all and it seems his fans enable him to the max because they believe him. I have ocean front property in Arizona that's for sale. I also believe he does drink because of his fans. Ever meet his fans? they are mean and behave like delinquints on weekend passes when at his concerts. What happened to his burned up arm? no signs of any scarring! An attempt for meds too?
True, fans can be obnoxious, no doubt. However, from doing my research on fan craze, I will keep her name anonymous, stated that he has a "group of fans" that follow him where ever he performs. Nothing wrong with that...they sit in the first 2 rows, primarily the first rows of any concert. Anonymous began going to concerts in 2000, her family came along with her. DC called her room and wanted to meet with her for an "encounter", she told him she was with her family which included her husband. DC told her no one needs to know sweetheart- Kept bothering her when she had went to a few concerts. Then when she firmly said "no"- he told his little group who follow him every where. Well she became the brunt of his jokes at that concert with the help of those "fans"- I commented about DC making fun of the shirt I gave him and my state at a concert, it was in poor taste. Either son fan or band member, (who knows) said it to me in reply: stating, "that the comments weren't directed at me but to something else." This confirms what the anonymous fan had spoken about. Indirect and underneath rudeness. Not uncommon for him to bully. After that, Anonymous was no longer a fan.
I don't believe David drinks because of his fans. It's something he does because he's an addict just like any other. Alcoholism is an inherited trait & something he was born with. Even so, it's been his choice to follow that path. Nobody made him do anything – not the drinking, the DUIs, the arrests. That's on him and him alone.
AMEN TO THAT-RIGHT ON POINT
Gee.....I wonder how that worked out for the Peter Noone fans when they all did Teen Idol tour. Peters' fans Always get primo seats as they have a special fan club section thing always going on, plus their nice meet and greets-His fans are such nice ladies-they get along and treat each other with respect. Now this former teen idol; his fans have always been different, very rude behavior and very obstinate. Not been to very many concerts, but have had my share in 40 years time only because he was the only entertainment in an indian casino or in a main studio. One day we will discuss why he moved to UK so hastily the first time around. Yes it did in fact have something to do with US fans. And it is the truth, he was F I R E D from Partridge-he did not quit. Everybody got pinked at the same time. People should learn to read others' material on this subject matter and then the story will become much clearer and truer.
Going for the old argument that he copied his dad in the alcohol dept.? They all drank in front of him. He had been privy to many opening nights and closing nights in stage with his parents, Hollywood parties so booze prevailed. I do not care what people write about in books, what one sees with their eyes is more believable. His father was not the crazed alcoholic he has been portrayed. Social drinker, yes. This teen idol on the other hand had been drinking since pre teen years because there it sat in the house when nobody was minding him-a throw away kid basically. Read his book, he was so into drugging and drinking back in the day he got truant from his school in Hollywood, not in no New York. He was a run away. Rather be down on Westwood Bl. than in school. Stop harping on his dad. His dad saved his life, by getting him jobs, by trying to keep him off the streets and off the drugs. And this is the thanks his dad gets, to get kicked all over again.
I don't see anybody blaming his father for anything-get off the phone already! Poor man died terribly in a fire. I think it is in poor taste to keep reviving him in print no matter who is doing it. David was a great man in his time, but his time is now in the sunset of his life. He shouldn't have a problem unless he just wants sympathy???? There really have been way too many issues on him to keep feeling sorry for him. He is financially bankrupt, he is obviously morally bankrupt by what some in here are talking about and he is spiritually bankrupt. Yes, I thought the part about falling to his knees was choice words as according to someone else who had been in his life for a number of years, he never had spiritual belief. Just wonder what he was doing on his knees when he had that divine moment when he screamed out. Sounds pretty questionable to me, but then a lot of things in his life are questionable. I think he is just one very reclusive lonely man who has to make up stories to shock his fans, right down to his so called big wompa. He has no respect for himself or for you, his fans. Obvious from another poster, he loves to think with his little head, so be it
in 10 days this story will be 1 month old. there is more talk about his life than his problem. some of you should write a book or is that what you are doing in here? writing a book? there is a plane that disappeared, things are going on in the world, but here everyone is, worrying about this has-been. why call him a teen idol even? he only had concerts for 3 short years to start with and that was to make his studio money. he had to stop them, he was not allowed to use the music that belonged to his studio. I be glad I never wanted to be a faker idol. his 'gold' is tarnished.
I couldn't agree with you more, Nancy. You've got it. David has no respect for himself. He doesn't love or even like himself. How can he possibly care for or about anyone else? Whatever soul he may once have had seems lost, abandoned, forgotten. .
That is it! No respect for himself, but then how was he supposed to know what that is? Has it ever occurred to anybody here that this is a man who has never had a chance to live alone? There is a reason for this. It started when he was small. It is like the warning label on a box of matches-He is the box of matches. His life had to be pretty bad to have another male live with him from 1966 and on. He never had to answer to anybody, he does not know respect. He doesn't know too much of anything. He lives in a world that he thinks is geared to him, it is not! To say truth, he wanted so bad to fit in to the Hollywood scene that he took up residence in one of the Sunset Strip hotels and watched for people to show up at the hot venues around the block on the strip. I am still mad at him for leaving me and my friend hang up in Oxnard. I trip with him or used to, until he spurned me as well
Left in Oxnard? What is an Oxnard? Sounds like a cattle drop off! And speaking of cattle, you all sound like a bunch of constalated cows going off about him and using you gals. Isnt that just like a man? doesn't have to be a singer to do that! Getting left in Oxnard! I am going to have to go and check THAT out! Oxnard just does not sound like Mohegan sun or Wolf Den-Oxnard
FYI Oxnard is a city in Southern California.
What in the world is a constolated cow anyways? Oxnard is a seaside area in Venturan county califorina.
ILOVE YOU, DAVID CASSIDY :) :) :0
Aww, why don't you all leave this alone now? He has given a lot of good music when he was going hot back in the heyday now he has a problem. Leave him alone. He knows what he was doing was wrong and it seems much more than just drink. Crying about his wife, blaming his wife, but wasn;t it him who cheated on her AGAIN? 23 years is a long time to be the dutiful wife and look the other way. Then he used his son-Why? Is history repeating itself and is he now jealous of his childrens rising stars? No more needs to be said about him, he just closed the door, the book and the life on his
Does he know what he was doing was wrong? Unlikely. He hasn't just closed the door, the book and the life. If anything, he's opened it wide and let the light shine in. A sad existence, but again by his own doing. David's only blame should be upon David.
Please Loveen, Thanks to you we get a much better understanding of who this guy is. I can understand the hurt and bitterness. I actually thank all his fans gave me a better picture into his sorrid life. I used to think he had the world by a string, but not so. I can see the hurt and pain, I can also see the enablers who jump and say Not True when others are trying to speak. How could anyone possible know unless they were right there and I think Loveen was right there many times. I almost got the feeling the infraction he pulled happened to her so she should speak up ansd shame him. Let him go and ride his horse off into the sunset. He aint even a good cowboy.
If he wanted me to bark like a dog, I would do it and then bite him into his buttocks and tell him I had a mean rasher of Rabies :D
Why do you disrespect yourself like this? why would you do this for this entertainer? Don't you have any self worth? If a man told me to do that, he'd be nursing one very vital organ part! I don't think he was being serious, another thing to stir everyone up.
I have been to at least 350 of his concerts and sometimes it is very true, his fans get this thing that comes over them and they start trouble for others. It is this thing about feeling they are the only one that counts in the concert. You know seriously the only thing he sees is all this money that we dole out to him. He doesn't really care for any one of use-whether or not we slept with him is unimportant. I have seen the cliques that gather together to rush security or management to try and get inside that stage door to get to him and they start pulling things off the stages like his towel, drumsticks, tambourines, even a couple of guitar straps hook-ups, knobs on the systems and his mic. That kind of behavior sends a message that the venue wont bring him back. I have seen older women hop rows of seats to get to the stage on last song because the aisles are blocked with more women trying to get to the stage some of the chairs did get broken, customers got slapped, hit, punched, kicked because the women had to get to him, their life depended on it and once again the venue will not allow him back, no matter what kind of up front insurance he lays down. I love him for what he gave me when I was 14, his music is real nice and he has always been dreamy, but he is now an old man and has troubles. I don't want to see him lost or really so sick he shrivels up and dies and I think this is happening-Unless he has another ace up his sleeves and trying to get a reality show going. Somehow I just don't think having drinking problems would be good on any tv broadcast. Poor man.
BUT...What happens if he bites back and has worse than rabies-then what?
After reading all of these comments, I am still trying ti figure out what was meant by so many of you calling David's fans "Mean" and obnoxious....during one point in his touring days, many of us went on several "road trips" to see many of his shows that were in close range......mostlt Fri, Sat and Sundays...we travelled with our husbands and boyfriends,,,alwys had great time at his shows...we were in his fan club "Just David" here in the US....don't recall any meaness or disrespect to anyone.....we have always been known to be extremely LOYAL fans (n matter what--still am), but I wish someone would explain why they feel we are "Mean".....NOT TRUE.........
I don't believe it is the US fans but abroad.
It is both sides of the pond. He does have mean fans! They are calculated and just mean! They put up a barrier between them and their charge which is HIM and they will lie and cajole, cheat and tell stories to make a goodlooking woman feel like a nothing. They hate when the pretty adies go to the concerts because theones who have seen their days and are now breaking into their manppausal mansions canot stand there is someone who is a looker who will catch his eyes and it happened boy howdy if it didn't! Finally! a fan caught him! I have visions of the claw hook coming down to capture him in the toy machine as we speak
Hey, the current girlfriend/fan is in her 50's like most of his fans. She isn't some spring chicken however she is quite pretty and she is probably in menopause too since that hits most women usually in their 50's . So stop with the menopause card. I would sure love to fill you all in on the truth but I am having a great time reading all this fan bashing nonsense. Plus you wouldn't believe the truth if it was staring you in the face!!
LOL-I have no quirks about the girl friend but I will tell you this, people do the know the truth from their own experiences with this sad person. I think it is DC who doesn't know his truths from his lies. Give me a break!
Awesome so true , you guys can't see the woody from the trees !
why don't you give the truth a try and fill us in? no fair just hinting
I've been to concerts, too, where the fans were so rude, mean, nasty, awful. The ones who always take the front row seats have their own little clique going. Reminds me of middle school girls. When others ask them how they managed the front row, they respond by saying "he knows us," "he expects us to be here," "we came a long way." They make sure that others have a hard time in getting the seats and have even been mean to handicapped fans who have been placed nearby. Their 50 is the new 13 ruins the experience for everyone else.
Whats all this that his 2nd daughter has now surfaced? Anyone keeping count? 1 son, 2 daughters and a possible 3rd if he does the dna. No wonder he drinks. His past is coming forward on that karma train-ChooChoo. I feel bad for him. no brain to ever figure anything out, he goes thinking he his style and him are the only rock icon in the history of the world
I know all about his mean fans. they are not nice at all. They do flood the concert halls with pre emails and phone calls to capture the front row seats at every concert they can and get mad when they cannot do this. It has a negative effect on the other local concert goers when they cannot get in to make a reservation of tickets for their own concert halls. This is another reason why he does those fairs nobody buys a ticket and it is open seats. Now he has other children he has been hiding? Not surprised at all. So terrible for him. He was a hot cutie in the 70's. My brothers always thought he was a girl in disguise.
THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO DISCUSS ANYTHING MORE THAN HIS DRINKING PROBLEM. REALLY LADIES, IT HAS GONE ON FOR TOO LONG. ALTHOUGH YOU ALL ARE TRYING TO BE ENTERTAINING AND SOME OF YOUR POSTS ARE DOWNRIGHT FUNNY, WHY IS IT YOUR BUSINESS WHO HE DATES OR WHAT HIS GIRLFRIENDS SHOWS OR TALKS ABOUT? JEALOUS MUCH? JUST BECAUSE YOU PAY TO SEE HIM IN CONCERT IN NO WAY GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHAT HE SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO. HE IS A GROWN MAN. IF HE WANTS TO GO OUT ON BROADWAY IN HIS NAKEDNESS AT 5AM IN THE MORNING ON CHRISTMAS DAY THAT IS HES RIGHT. THIS WAS REALLY A BIG NOTHING STORY, INTENDED TO HELP HIS NIBS AND NOBODY ELSE
BDA-His drinking has effected everything. Then DC should be quiet and not discuss his personal life on TV or magazines. He set this up himself.
HE DID FOR ONLY HIMSELF, NOBODY ELSE. THE MAGAZINE INTERVIEWS, THE RAG MAGS STORIES, ALL THESE ARE PUTTING MONEY INTOHIS POCKET. THAT IS ALL IT IS. NO, HE SHOULDNT USE THE PUBLIC FOR HIS PRIVATE ISSUE, BUT THEN, HE DIDN'T WANT TO GO TO JAILS AND HE HAD TO MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF THIS DRINKING. BET YO WILL FIND HIM DOWNING THOSE $1,000 MINT JULEPS THIS WEEKEND. HE SET IT ALL UP. I GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU GALS,,,,WHY IS HIS PRIVATE PART OF SUCH INTEREST TO ALL OF YOU? DON;T YOUR HUSBANDS HAVE ONE? IS HIS SO SPECIAL? WHAT HE OWNS IS OF NO COCNERN HERE. BAD TATSE TO BRING IT OUT INTO THE OPEN LIKE A ROLLED UP JIMM DEAN SAUSAGE. IM GLAD I DON;T ENCOUNTER YOU LASSES. NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY HE RUNS FROM YOU WOMEN
I agree with you, I am a clown. David's drinking has effected every bit of his personal and professional lives. He held himself out in the hopes of gathering sympathy. It didn't work this time. If he wanted to everything to be his business alone, he shouldn't have agreed to do a filmed television interview. And certainly not one in which he appeared drunken & glassy eyed. (BDA – KINDLY PLEASE STOP SHOUTING! SO NOT NECESSARY TO MAKE YOUR POINT.)
You know, if some of you bleeding hearts would go out and find the information, you might find the oyster of why he is doing what he did. Been in therapy since he was 12-that tells a lot about him-never paid ANYTHING for his mother's care except for $250 to $200 a month for extra food, his baby mommy oversaw the care of his mother by way of contract because of the granddaughter and could have had him in contempt for a LOT of things. So he is not the perfect idol he makes himself out to be-All the times he cried in concert speaking about his poor mother dying-she was only dying for 4 years until she actually did-BUT to learn he NEVER paid for her to have better care ????? Now I know why his eyes are BROWN. His father was dying of lung cancer and he knew it, but he didn't die from his own hand-His apartment was already smoldering the day before it caught complete fire. nothing was ever pointing to drunkenness. He tried to escape only to be overcome by the smoke. Now I understand why he is the way he is – the 1950's were not kind to anyone mother, the drugs they took affected some children – He even walked away from on an on the table percentage package from PF, but he turned it down back in the day with his manager so he is stuck with this latest ploy to try and be sue happy again.
Who are you to tell us what? We who have supported him or have had encounters with him over the years do have a right to voice our dissatisfaction on the behavior he has shown to us who have put money in his pocket. If it wasn't for us, he wouldn't have gone as far as he has and that is why he had to leave for the UK. the fans were dissatisfied and angry. Come on, someone start spilling the other beans because I have a few thousand I'd like to spill myself. He is like the energizer bunny, just keeps on going. but he runs over people too and uses people to his advantage then he dumps and then wonders why his friends don't call him back. Ask Don – I know the real reason of that friendship and it is a jim dandy to boot!
* I meant ask Don Johnson, not this quack Big Don Blowhard
Why don't you stop hinting and spill the beans?
He likes the woman to do ALL the work for one thing. He just lays there on the bottom. He used to be prone to liking to dunk a lady's head into the toilet bowl if she complained. What do you think about Don Johnson? One can gather a heck of a lot of information by reading select and certain biographies about Mineo and then start linking names. Most of the guys who were with Sally also were friends with each other, worked at Columbia, shared an agent, also had a good gig in televisionland and became pretty big names. Now why do you think that is? The Lavender Club has the answers!
Ahhhh...read that book didn't want to believe it
What do you mean that Don Johnson was dunking David's head into the toilet? I thought they didn't like each other anymore because they knew secrets about each other. I don't think David was gay, but what do I know? Common knowledge says people will do all kinds of things in Hollywood-for drugs, for stardom, for $500 dollars. So do women. I don't think David had to do things unless he was high or experimenting, that was the 70's, free love and drugs. I know a funny thing in Hollywood's lore is that if Sal gave guy a drum set, something special had happened. There are at least 7 drum sets out there, all accounted for by pretty famous men
I'd pay to see David in his divine nakedness on Broadway at 5am in the morning-All in favor????? I think old Almos is stuck in the quicksand of life-The ladies rule here-Each and every one of us old battleaxe codger menopausal women who some keep referring to. I attest I have never jumped a seat or chair to get to him ;)
Having a hose and knowing how to use it are two different things. You Big Don, will never have the chance to use yours enough to become an expert with it. And believe me his Jim Dean NEVER ran away
Yea, his hose is super duper power charged industrial strength and it lays straight as a grizzly's -oh ha ha- made a funny :D. See, Tom Jones is over abundantly blessed, Humperdincky is super duper blessed, Elvis knew how to use his hose to put out fires-Whats the big deal? I like to think they did a wonder public service to all the flames burning up all over the country .... and that's why I Smile :D YES!
Ah Yes ;) That is an always
Maybe BDA has his all kinked up in knots -BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Maybe he has to yell since he is talking out of his ass
David is the only man I know who has ever owned his own damn telephone pole :D
I'm calling him collect then! Who's with me? :D :D :D
Does he still have a mutil line party connection?
Some are failing to grasp why some "fans" are upset. It's not the one night it seems that many have gotten with him. They were able to put their fantasy to bed so to speak . It's the lies he told to keep you on a string. Don't tell, you're the only one, I trust you, come see me. I understand now that it was a game and that he really has a sadistic side toward his fans but when you're in it it's really hard to see the forest through the trees. I wish him well but after all these years it's very hard to believe that he is "sincere" how many of us has he pulled that line on us? Oh yea he means it from the bottom of his heart this time! He really wasn't joking when he said, I bet you all have a support group for all of you. Well here it is folks. On the Piers Morgan blog!!
He doesn't have a heart, he has a water pump that pumps ice cold cubes into his veins! I wouldn't believe him on a bet! Ask his ex what he had been up to in his other business and then think and ask yourself how on earth did his other ex go up the ladder of success? They used all his fans in the UK. He has not had any feelings for anyone. How can he lie about his own father? About his own mother? About his real children? He doesn't tell the truth about his fans who actually are more than one night stands, some of them. What man would allow a woman to keep paying her own way to go be with him in whatever city? A man always pays! He has used women with money and he doesn't care. That's what he thinks it is a free ride on a womans dollar except it is in the thousands of dollars. Ask around.
I SERIOUSLY DOUBT WHATEVER HE HAS TO OFFER WORKS AT ALL. IT IS AS DEAD AS HIS CAREER IS AND HAS BEEN FOR OVER 40 YEARS. ALL HE CAN DO IS COMPLAIN LIKE A DIVA, CAUSE A SCENE AND THEN LET THE HOUNDS GO TO TOWN ON THEIR GOSSIP. HE HAS LOST HIS FOOTING HINDSIGHT SHOWS THAT HE WAS TOLD BY HIS CO WORKERS TO GET INTO REHAB OR ELSE BECAUSE HE WAS GOING TO MISS DATES. HE WENT TO REHAB FOR A WEEKEND AT AA. THAT IS NOT REHAB. HIS REHAB IS HIS GIRLFRIENDS. LEAST MY WINKY WORKS
I never have had that problem. He ALWAYS drove to my house, He always came to MY hotel room that he paid for. He always treated for dinner or lunch-ALWAYS. Guess some are luckier than others!
I wanna know whatcha all drinkin in here? My heartthrob is a perfect man! He doesn't do anything wrong! Wasted time and resources piling up in here! I am wearing my Wellies as the pies are so thick here it is not funny! What is wrong with you? Go play on the freeway of life. Man has a drinking problem his business if he wants to quit or if it kills him. End of the story,
You have GOT to be kidding me, right? 1 man spills that he has a problem with the bottle and now we learn everything and then some from a 52 sec. interview that never had been aired? I want to thank his fans who say they are fans, who say have been his lover, who have been turned away by him after he used them up. Trust me, he would rather make love to each woman 1 time than keep asking 1 lone dumb head to keep coming back for more abuse according to her! He doesn't seem like a mean man at all, he actually looks very meek and very non threatening! He only weighs 120 pounds and only 5 foot 6 inches. Except for bad women who love to gossip, I never heard a bad word about him at all except this drinking problem. Now we have kids, girlfriends, bedcapades, inside this alcohol story. What next? This is the worst comedy show I have ever witnessed! And why bother and quote his girlfriend? Trying to break that up too? Why not just leave him alone? I happen to love him very much, but it is a past feeling from when I was 17. I am now 63 and love my partner of 37 years. He is what is important to me. This is the most insane blog I have ever seen and by women who claim to be his good close friend and fans? I hate to see his enemies!
David's physical stature may be one thing, but his narcissistic temperament another. He is, as Loveen so aptly described, the actor described in the AA big book. "he sets up the stage, he is the director", when people don't do as he says, he becomes the Jekyll & Hyde. He will retaliate or use charm to get his way. He doesn't take "No" well, and that will never change. "Bad women who love to gossip"? Not so, Jayne. Keep dreaming!
For one thing, he is NOT 120 pounds! More like 157. He is NOT a meek and a mild man-no way! You never have had seen him have his meltdowns-familiarize yourself and go on youtube and watch him go off at a celebrity event, in Las Vegas, in a few of his concerts, even recently he couldn't sing Cherish very well at all and that was pit of my stomach sickening sad to see as he used to gather his faithful by the boatload into huge arenas. I don't care of he slept with fans-that is par for the course of an entertainer, unless they are faithful to their wives-and it seems in this day and age, there are a lot of faithful former hard rockers who stay truthful to their spouses. You know what is so sad? People like Ozzy, Alice, Mick, David Bowie....None of them EVER gor up on a show like this and "cried" like this. They just went off to the rehabs if they needed rehab and be done with it. This guy, I don't know...He acts like he still needs to be welped or weaned or something! Big cry baby, did mean one word of what he said, not one word! Worried about his wife and hoaking around with a girlfriend almost a year before divorce and he blames his wife? Sorry, it does not work that way, Bub!
It's one thing to have good memories of the past and enjoying his music,etc. but it's another to not recognize the man he is. He put it out there – trying to get out of trouble – but it backfired. Many fans are no longer. And what does someone's physical appearance have to do with their soul and their respect of other, etc. It's the inside that matters and his seems to have not developed or developed poorly. I think it's interesting to hear the encounters of others as I have experienced rudeness by him at his concerts. And, as far as people speaking out – once you learn something you didn't know about someone or had bad experiences yourself it changes your opition of someone. It's good to know – why spend money or time on someone who shows no respect for anyone and cares only about themselves. It's sad to learn of alot of these things and I think that's why people are upset and continue to speak out.
Ann is correct what bothers me the most for those harmed by David, is the ABUSE-and I will not elaborate on the abuse but it is purely sick behavior. No excuse for any type of abuse-none whatsoever!
Way to say it, Ann! Exactly right on! He in fact shot himself in the foot by trying to romance his way on Piers show and it backfired tremendously! There was no segment, he got shut off after 50 count them! 50 quick seconds because they knew as we know the guy was drunk or on something-probably that same medication his publicist always talks about him being allergic to, riiight. Those shows were live but only tape delayed so there is no other extra footage. He was blitzed! he was slurring his words for goodness sake! How can he have such respect for anyone when he faked this whole thing for to get out of criminal trouble? Then he is off walking off into the sunset, photo op of him in the Bahamas recently, photo op of him in Florida, photo op of him in New York and photo op of him in the L.A. area. What kind of a lockdown rehab is this? I think Ann and the rest are right, he has only gone to a few AA meetings and as he sat there and spoke the very words that he would die, he is looking pretty drunk. Sympathy ploy for the courts to get out of jail, that's all it is. Of course there are hard feeling of some of his fans. When he keeps saying bad mean things about ex wives and lying about the whole life story, there is cause for someone to step out and speak out! He lied when he said some gal was in his hospital room, trying to put something into his IV line-Crock of Beans! For one thing he was only in the hospital for 2 days, both his mom and Shirley were there like 2 hawks. One day for the op, 24 hours later he was home at his mom's house before going home to Encino. If anyone knows anything about Sinai hospital, it is a very movie starfish hospital and there is no way anybody from the outside can just waltz in there, especially a fan of a tv show. Like going into Levenworth there, so he makes up a lot of stories. It is alright that his faithful flock doesn't want to believe, they believe books, well, books are written for one purpose and that does not mean what is in there is the truth. Stories to make money. Is there anybody out there that knows his plastic surgeon? Not a trace of a burn mark on that right arm of his. The old dirty cut off sock trick must have worked :D
Wow and Wow! I can sure see that some of yous are really upset with this man and probably rightly so! I had a few encounters with him when he was doing a show last year. It was at a casino and he was drinking scotch and being cutesy. At our job, we cannot get tied up and connected to any one of our patrons, either customer, singer or run of the mill gambler. He was insistent and I almost lost my job of 18 years. He does not take No for an answer and he does in fact pull the old 'nobody will have to know;, our little secret', well, it does not work like that for me. I do not find drunk men attractive and my husband would sure have something to say about his way of trying to pick up a lady. He treats women like they are nothing more than something for his bedroom antics. Then he drops them. I have seen and had to have listened to many many women cry over their drinks when he has left them and dumped them and reality sets in. It is not pretty at all. He is not 20 years old anymore, he is an embarrassment to himself, to his craft and to his fans. He should just go and retire already. Thank you, Loveen and Ann, we need more women like you to herald the call and answer the the unasked questions of not only him, but os so many entertainers just like him...I've seen my share in my work field, some are classier than others, but if they can get away with it, they will take any woman or man and say the right things and do the right things and then once they got what they wanted, they dump on these women and men and it is heartbreaking!
thanks believer. The women who I interviewed were saying the same identical things about their contact with him. At some point you know that thousands of women are not lying. Thanks for verifying for us what he has done. I know of one encounter in Ft. Lauderdale where a couple outside by the beach bar drinking, David was super drunk and began flirting with this husbands wife, he said to her, "do you know who I am? I am David Cassidy and women love me"-the lady turned to David and said, No what you are sir is a sloppy drunk!" She had no idea that he was "David Cassidy the actor/musician-I guess he just shook his head and went on to flirt with the next lady! that was in the summer of 2010
I can appreciate that! He never seems to miss an opportunity and after reading things here and remembering things of the past, it seems that he is really worried about his self worth as a Romeo man. If he is over in Ft. Lauderdale picking up married women again he is making a name for himself in his own neighborhood! He has such a name up here no woman will look at him-Maybe the reason he has to pick on fans again? No, that I am talk went out with the dirty water back in the day. I wouldn't take him on on a good day because I have self worth going for me. As I read, I get a bad feeling for his new flame. Seems she is a lady of worth, hope she watches her pocketbook and doesn't buy into his crying. I've seen fans buy him things and he has actually thrown away all gifts. There used to be a somewhat auction in back of the stage after he and others packed up, once a week, an auction for us to buy things-some things were pretty nice, some were handmade-that is sad that people spend and take time to bring these singers nice items for saying thank you and they get dumped into the trash can. Most are stuffed animals and we sent those over to the local hospital for the children., If you need to see someone in concert, go have fun, but do not spend your hard earned money! They have tons more than you will ever know and they do not appreciate it. You know he was up in his room hiding when the rest of these teen idols were signing and posing for photos? When Davy Jones did it a couple of years ago, he signed every last autograph and what happens, his lady goes off and this guy has a meltdown like a stupid head.
David Cassidy has an Easter Greeting on his website davidcassidy.com that says he is doing very well with his sobriety. I guess no one showed him this CNN interview clip where its evidenced he is NOT sober. Sounds more like his publicity team concocted the message as it's overly cheery. However, this real video clip don't lie.
I agree with "Jayne".......this is the most insane blog I have ever read....just leave the man alone and hope he recovers......
Than dont read it
I think all those things put on his site are generated by his people. I'm sure he has better things to do with his time than answer anybody. He's in Rehab, remember. No talkie, No visitors. It's all hype! Yea well I just bought a nice bottle of wine, not a drinker, but thought it'd be nice for a change for those who want it. I do think he was under some influence and I do think the producers stopped filming once they saw what they were dealing with. I think all you posters are correct about a lot of things. It is a shame. I know a lot of the 60 and 70 idols are so cool and nice after their concerts; they come out and will sign ANYTHING and nobody ever has a breakdown or meltdown, not like this man. He always has made himself out to be something he never was. Should ask one of his ex's about his so called faith
If this man did not have a reason to drink, just reading some of the carp here would make him! Where are his protectors here? Just letting the children run rampant? I don't care if it is true or made up, it doesn't belong here. Maybe his fansite should allow you protesters to go over there and air your dirty laundry. Not everything should be positive and rosy. I do believe he was drunk in the video, sorry. He needs help let him go and get it, but he needs to stop flaunting his vacations with his fiancée all over the enternet. Sick is sick, but he looks to be sick and having a jolly ol great time. How can anybody take any of this seriously? Bad April Fool's Joke?
So I am not the only one noticing the fiancée bragging like a twelve year old fan all over the internet! Ah and she is certainly lacking in the brain department. In her latest pic of her and him with a birthday cake, there is actually a wine glass in the picture!!! I spose she will say it is a mocktail. That is what she called the contents of the wine glass on her table at his last concert.... Never knew wine glasses were used for mocktails
because whenever anything in a negative light is brought up on his website or fan page it is promptly taken down. You are only allowed to view him through rose colored glasses. Its a shame, he is human and deeply flawed at that but not allowed to be seen that way.
They are tweeked because they all know there is truth in what people are saying in here! Carry On :D
Teen Idol sighting at Berry Field Airport last night with a blonde woman! They must be going up to the Derby, but going through town to see the sights here first Opryland lineup is great tomorrow night before going up to KY.
Not too many Mocktails served at cocnerts at all! They want their money! I'm sad to say we might just hear he did something very wrong and probably dying from chirorriss
Probably carries a flask in his front pocket and then calls it spring water :D
wine and cake pic from Huntington hotel
Complete idiots-every one of you.
David Cassidy is one of the sweetest men that ever walked the face of the earth! So he has his "mean" moments, so what? Maybe it was the booze that did it? Crazy fans who do not listen or behave could push him over the top too. Please leave this sweet man alone and leave him to his peace, please! Do not even think twice, yes I know him, and have known him since March 14, 1970. He is a very shy man, he does not go around and act like some drunk pick up artist. If he wants a woman, he knows the right numbers to call to get a woman for the night. I don't know about the lot of you, but I am glad none of your words would change my mind. Glad I met him, Glad to know him and call him friend for over 40 years.
He sure can be a good guy when he wants to cant he? Ive seen both sides. When he's good he's really good but watch out for that bad side! It's a doozy! Just curious, do you know the man from 40 years ago or do you speak of the "new and improved" David?
Great that your experience was different but you certainly live in lala land.
Happy you had a good experience. Many haven't. Just because you did doesn't make everyone else a "complete idiot".
Physical abuse is more than "mean moments", and obviously you do not know him as well as you say. Stay in your dream world. None of your words will change the minds of those who have witnessed his public meltdowns, and felt his abuse.
Jan, your own statement describes "the sweetest man on earth" as one who "knows which numbers to call to get a woman for the night".....even though he's married. Obviously, we have different definitions of sweetness...and probably of lies, drunkenness, obnoxiousness, irresponsibility, etc.
Go pound sand! He is a mean guy! If I didn't know he was an Aries, I would swear he was a Gemini. Nice and sweet until things don't go his way, then watch out! He acts like a spoiled brat basically. He has never stopped drinking in over 40 years-Do you think this little stunt changed anything? Next thing you know, he will be DWI in the water the way he manuvers his little boat.
I met him at his studio in 1970, we became friends as I am 2 years younger than him. I eventually start working for Columbia/Burbank Studios because of David and worked myself up to make-up artist and hair stylist for Paramount studios after being at Columbia for 9 years-Paramount 29 years and then as freelance to have more free time. I never slept with him, just his friend. He is a good man, but I understand his frustrations. For a long time nobody takes him very seriously in his music or in his acting. Yes, he has had rough goes, but nobody talks about that because nobody wants to see him lose his contracts/jobs. You just can't help but love him, at least like him-he has his moments, we all do, but mercy, please you have to stop with this talk of him being so mean to you. Why don't you contact him in private? I'm sure his agent is listed. He has lost a great deal recently and to be mean here isn't very nice. He has a good close friend who had been quite ill for a long time and seems everybody in his life is going away, mostly by death. Maybe you are in more dire need of a man than he is of a real woman. ????????? Gosh I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend :D
Who do you think you are talking to, Dora Dora? I am a man and I call it the way I see it. So what if he has girlfriends? I think your problem with him is that you were never his one and only. You go on that he abused you, but you keep on with him and his girlfriend-Why? Of what importance is it to you? You cannot be judge, jury and executioner. Live and let live! You cannot call his shots and if he stumbles and falls he needs a friend to help him up; not to run a play by play of what he is doing wrong and with whom. You sound like such a miss priss perfect, but this is not a perfect world. Let him call women if he so wishes, let him be drunk in public and picking up women, let him go along and allow him to do what he wants to do. You cannot dictate to him. You sound like an old dried up prune. Have a nice day :D
??? Did you confuse me with someone else?
DO YOU LITTLE CHILDREN EVER BEHAVE? IT IS GOOD FRIDAY-A TIME FOR REFLECTION AND PRAYERS. LET US PRAY FOR DAVID, TO BETTER HIMSELF, TO BE A BETTER MAN TO HIMSELF, TO OTHERS AND TO SHOW HIM FORGIVNESS IN PAST TRANSGRESSIONS. HELP HIM TO HEAL DEAR LORD AND SHOW HIM THE WAY TRUTH AND LIGHT. THIS TOO SHALL PASS FROM HIS LIFE AND HE WILL LIVE RENEWED AND WILL REJOICE IN HIS NEW FOUND FREEDOM IN LIFE.......(and I pray for all you mean spirited little girls in here too-fingers in ears and thumbin my nose at you all :D)
Are you freaking serious!!!! How dare you pray for me while thumbing your nose at the same time!!!! How contradictory is that statement you condensing ass!!!
Iris, there is only one martyr and it isn't you. You screaming doesn't make you any better than others. I don't believe good spirit condones abuse.
With fingers in ears and thumb in your nose to us all you STILL came on here to read and post, on Good Friday.
You can't be serious, right? Who are you to tell anybody what? Actually a lot of you are telling people to do this and to do that-Who are you? Unless you are paying these peoples bills and feeding them, clothing them and sheltering them, I think you all should really leave it alone. You got a gripe on for him, but this is a place to discuss his alcoholism. I don't drink so I know nothing of addiction, but I can see how a lot of you see him as being drunk in this video, I think he is so it was stupid of him to try and go on tv to pound on his chest that he has a problem and he will die when he was already drinking or drunk when he said those very words. I sense at least uno very jealous woman in here. You need to move on, sister. Put it on your facebook and invite people to read the whole story. Stop dropping hints and getting all the others to spill their tales. You started, you bring it on. For the REAL fans GET A LIFE!
Miss churchlady get on your knees for him... yeah do that.... yeah just like that!
LOL! Must be fallout from the Blood Moon the other night LOL! Now we have a Minister in here praying for one soul and condemming the rest-Gee Whiz! I don't know what you all do or smoke or drink, but this has been the most seriously funny and sad at the same time blog I have ever read! I do believe the ones who encountered him-There are stories all about his prowess all over our planet, all of it not very good! Ladies, no idea who you are, but I thank you, for speaking out and I bet the ones who are afraid might just decide to join you in here and let everyone know how rude this guy really is. No amount of shock will change the fact he is in some real deep trouble and it goes far beyond these DUI's. There is talk around he is in trouble with people who want money back and then he is playing with Sony and a lawsuit. That is just dumb.
Well...Isn't that Special! Don't say that! Then he will be down on his knees again too and having another revelation!
Barking like a dog yet? Got you at the toilet bowl yet?
I just had my own revelation about this barking dog STUFF. These freakish churchy women that keep praying and believing in their fantasy that this man is some PAPER DOLL CUT OUT IMAGE THAT CAN'T DO NO WRONG are actually the ones BARKING LIKE A DOG, YAP YAP YAP WOOF WOOF WOOF doing what he wants, keeping the image alive... woooooffff.
HOPE THEY DON'T ALL HAVE FLEAS! CHOKE COLLARS OPTIONAL. WOOF WOOF! CATS LOOSE :D
If you don't like what he had done to you, why don't you just take him into a court of law and sue him? There is no statute of limitations on abuse or molestation. I know he can get rough-he will pull out your earrings, he will pull your hair and he will suffocate you while you are down there, he will try and keep you there, then he will call you swear names, that's the way he was. He has matured, but he likes to be rough, that's him. So either be quiet about him being abusive or call up TMZ or RadarOnLine and sell the story to them. .
It appears you have a heathy relationship with others. Not have been abused, love or admiring someone is not manipulating , bribing, lying. And charming women to bed. His drinking is only a symptom of his problems. You are wringing your hands? Imagine those who have had no voice, believing it is their fault, believing they are not worthy, and reliving the rejection. Point is, he did not treat this women as humans but as some pet project. They have been wringing their hands. This is not a joke about his behavior it is serious.
Give the guy a break we are all consenting adults here . I for one have had a blast the last 15 years long may it continue .
Maybe some of you need to go to therapy? That is the one thing all over the world a man will do to a woman he doesn't want-HE USES HER AND DUMPS HER! This rock and roller isn't the first and certainly isn't the last when it comes to getting what he wants at the time. Stand tall, arch your shoulders back and say out loud "I bedded David Cassidy, The BIG Teen Singer and I survived and I am HAPPY!" Some women only wish and some women take pity and decline. The game os chance is cruel, but can be good if only you allow it to be so.
Oh penny something is not right with you sis.
You know...I am really beginning to think about what I have been reading-You know he called both his parents narcissists? I thought he loved his mum? I noticed that true reports he did not pay for her care at all, and then came a tidbit about his little life when he was 15 and budding around with Mineo-Mineo was supplying him and a few of his friends with drugs and women and would watch the "festivities". Now there is another person who also wrote about Mineo and David, it isn't sunshine and lace at all. I was shamed to read he chalked up his 1st bankruptcy in 1976-sad to know I had more money than him at that time-What happened to ALL his money! It was not all lost on bad investments. Oh and for the faint of heart, he does use women for their money-Anyone who knows him well knows this. I feel badly for these women here who got taken by air promises and mistruths. That gave themselves and got rooked and abused and made to feel like dirt on the bottom of shoes. Ladies, you are not alone! One day, one day he will answer and of course he will deny
There really are a lot of information pages on his wild way of doing things. I just took whatever was being reported on for granted, neither here nor there, but as an also long-time former fan and concert-goer, I am thinking he wasn't the nicest person at all, he isn't the perfect guy who everybody kicks. Maybe in his old age he is getting the hauntings, from things he has done in the past and maybe his physical being is compromised and he is running scared, but gosh...He should have been a better person and not be such a stenod all these years. There are things in cyberland that although at first could be passed up as gossip, but on closer inspection looks to be true especially if you were around at the time and know exactly of what the poster speaks of and can remember exactly how these things happened. Isn't nice at all, but bottom line, seems he has been a real party animal for many years and all of a sudden crying Uncle. I always thought he was a bit better than that, but obviously not-so sad.
Statutes of limitations vary from state to state, but they do apply. If the time hasn't lapsed, he can still be sued. If it's over, he can't. Plain & simple.

There is a hink in here that there is only 1, possible 2, but no more than 2 of you blaming him for hurting you girls. GET OVER IT OR SEND HIM TO JAIL! Sue the pants off him if you feel you have been made to feel like a dog. Any and I do mean any woman who lowers herself to sleep and keep sleeping with this supposed machochist deserves just what they get! You just don't like the old use and lose routine of an entertainer. That's life baby! Get over yourselves or sue him, take him to court, make a claim, call the rag magazines and open that can of worms all the way up! Waste of time trying to talk about the bad effects of alcohol. If he was drinking when he did this to you, then I would have to believe him right off. A man who drinks for as long as he has, well his equipment just does not work so good. Case closed.
BREAKING NEWS! DAVID CASSIDY, ONLY MAN IN HISTORY TO LURE WOMEN TO HIS BED FOR FUN AND THEN DUMPS THEM-DETAILED COVERAGE AT 6:p.m.
This has got to be the most excellent, funniest post ! I am laughing my you know what off * VERY FUNNY * Thank you for the laughs :)
Just adding to this drama. 0.11 to 0.20 a person will exibit signs of many things one of which is Slurred Speech. Ok, that has been deemed in this video. I want to hear his explaination about when he started to drink? 2009 he says? Then why was he at a function for some recovery in 2008 where he said he just got out of Betty Ford????? Why does he keep saying his dad was jealous of his career? He was not, already paid his dues on Broadway. Now, There was also an incident at a New York Playboy mansion where he behaved badly, trying to go after a young playmate of 21, groping her and being a chit on the thing. He has had a long time drink problem, why does he keep trying to reinvent and why does he always seem to have to send out an SOS to his half brothers who are more successful than he is? Give us a break here.
Just how much truth is attached to all these allegations we will perhaps never know – did all this really happen – is it just a dream or pure fantasy? If true, this is dynamite and why are so many women not talking openly with honesty and without fear. What price have they paid for keeping "our little secret"?
I would estimate 99.9 percent is true. Not just saying it to be funny. Take for an example when his lady friend got preggers and he flat out denied to his wife it was some crazed stalker of a fan making up a story, now if he could go to the lengths to bury that and to not tell the truth; to lie to at least 3 people, how do you think he would react with all these truths? The real information is out there. I think the main reason why so many women may not be talking is nobody would believe them because the fans have been in the vortex, he is the saint, all others are lying. Actually, all the real truths are in fact out in the e-net, just have to find them. For those who care to seek it out, it is a goldmine of information, for others who don't care, that is it. but it is out there and it is all very interesting. Even enough of a real story to make one shake their heads where it does concern truth vs. lie. Can't make it up, just like the story about an Ex who got beat up and had years of physical therapy. People know who he is and what he is. Just in the recent years alone where he did bad, he didn't tell the truth; about his drinking and driving when caught in Florida, his allergic reaction to all these cold medicines, in Vegas, in Burbank, in the other various places he was singing at when he went off-I mean, come on, obvious problems and with it come the lies. Always will love him blaming his slow eye on the Florida DUI-the bottle in his hand was just an afterthought????
You are spot on Veronica. Every one of the girlfriends, groupies, whatever... are "crazy stalkers" and he is always the victim. Hey...maybe some of them ARE psycho, with as many as he's had the odds are good a few are not right in the head. To the ones who have had good experiences I say – good for you! To the ones that didn't, I believe that you were led on and played with and that sucks. I'd have more respect for him if he'd just played the game right. Have the groupies, have his fun- yeah..he's a famous musician, they do that, it's a given, whatever..BUT...he didn't need to lie and puff up the "relationship" and get these women to believe there was something more just to get his cruel, sadistic fun out of it. I hope they all have been able to move on and lead happy lives – and I'll say it again, if they want to come out and vent about it now? Good! I'm sure it helps them to know they aren't alone.
I too read his autobiography. I cam away thinking he was just the most lonely man on earth for he had to lie to make a name for himself with the ladies. How many guys would actually tell the world he stuck his privates out of a gate and allowed whoever to do their business on him? That is a dreamer who wants to be just like a rock star. I got on good advice there are some pretty seasoned ladies in Hollywood, that back in the heyday, they would never touch him because he was not worthy, he was not of rock status-he basically went home alone, not with any of the ladies of the day that made a name out of going with rock stars. Then you got to wonder if these girls who are going up to his private home, where is his head at along with all his friends? Still under age-Does he think this is ok? Chances are it is a make believe story. What teenager drove a car up in the hills back in the day to find him? NO ONE! There are photos, I swear, there are no throngs of girls at his studio, make believe again, one or two lone strays, not old enough to even be there- 12 – what he doing with a 12 yr old? All nonsense.
Go back into his history and see how he was as a small boy. He was mean to cats, burning them, hanging them on clotheslines by their tails, balling them up and throwing them. Does anybody ever think as to why he has no long term childhood friends? Doesn't play well with others and the two he did have, He cut them off because....they know . FYI, it was between his dad and his step dad that got him into show business, sink or swim. He was misbehaving, truant at school, he only got through 1 semester at high school. He rather be off getting high with others down on Santa Monica Bl..
Wow – Wish I would have know about the cruelty to animals – That would have been it for me. How could any one care about him after hearing that. There is so much I didn't know. For someone to do that to animals they have no soul. I wish there had been laws back then that would have put him in jail.
how did you hear of the cat abuse? never heard of that before
Animal abuse? Well, if he abuses women, what did he abuse before he learned how to do that? I do know he didn't tell the truth when he'd pose with a horse down at the horse stables located down the road on Riverside. He didn't get into horses until he met his #2 wife. He persued her with a vengeance 1981 & he knew what he was getting into there-money and prestige. She helped him so much while they were in the UK, it was her who showed him what the grand life was-Ask her! She was so mistreated and used and then called crazy-She is far from crazy! So when we going to hear the dirty laundry. Keep hearing about lack of trust and yata yata yata, get to the facts!
Amen!!! Happy Easter everybody!
Yea...Someone else said it too well....He has made up a life time of lies and now wonder how he is going to get out of his web as he struggles. He won't. The thing that gets me is how he thinks he is this great huge idol of the world when all he ever was was a character on a tv show and he hated that until that was all he could fall back on. Now, if you want to get into the how he did it-how he got on tv, it ALL relates back to who the people were connected to ABC and Columbia and who he was attached to at the time. This wasn't some Cinderella moment for his career. FYI, start looking around the internet for information, don't just use his name, his former friends, his dad-there is a real excellent site devoted to his dad and the moderator has worth, meaning he isn't fly by night, and he does not tolerate lies or gossip, lot of information and so shocking. – It is a shame the ones who know are and have been stymied for years-Can't or not allowed to speak out of the abuse he inflicted. He is so small he abuses in his concerts-when he uses bad words and swears to his fans. this is NOT a seasoned performer-this is a tantrum throwing, diva baby.
Happy Easter to Everybody!
Didn't he write that he got Barbara, The Butter Queen? Then he too ran her down? I remember seeing her on a talk show about this subject and she was not an ugly woman at all, not like he described her. The way he wrote that book-disgusting. Shows what type of person he is- to say such mean things and allow himself to look like- What? That is bull. He lowered himself. So he is ok with women as long as they don't come back to haunt him? is that it? They can all be crazy and stalkers and and and, but he is all perfect? he lies about his baby girl? lied about the woman? lied about the wives? He isn't worth the gasbag I just cut.
Get Real Already! He is no great shakes. He was tapped to be a teenybopper idol and then it went away-45 years ago! Whatever is going on with him now, who cares? I agree, I think he did use this arena to do the old look at me, I'm a mess and need help, then he went off, flipping his bird, walking off from responsibility as usual. He could have killed somebody! Does he care? No. Like he didn't care when he hurt women, many women. Some personal, some just fans, but he has hurt a lot of people and he does not care! But he chose to go out and be negligent on the highways and then when caught, he LIES! Unbelievable! How much more can anybody really support him now. Start making a list on these things he does-no good.
The Butter Queen was not Hollywood Groupie royalty. She was from Fort Worth. Nobody else will speak up because they think they hold the Ace that will get them their dream of being the next Mrs. Cassidy- HA!
I think he needs to be left like sand in the garden. Here comes the star, the idol of all the world-NOT!
Better watch....he will sue the world! He's the victim and you all are beating up on him. Quit It :D
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"
LOL! Then scorn away, good women!
I think I know what is that bothers him. Not the women he used, he thought I bet that at his age right now, he'd be like a southern gentleman, raising horses, doing stud service and not working too hard for it. So in his old age, he is still signing those songs that made the TV show he hated somewhat famous. If he wasn't such a prima donna, he could have worked with the very best in the business, but burned bridges, same reason he pulled on you girls-user. He has lost at least 24 homes, lost cars, bankruptcies, divorces-the only thing nobody ever saw in print was all this abuse of power and abuse against women. Hey, how come nobody else is spilling their beans after they called the pot black? Details, we want details! Nothing to hide if it is the truth
Shameful what goes on here.
Was watching a nice movie today and in it was an actress who admitted she too was an alcoholic and her life was in the gutter. She lost everything and was living on the kindness of strangers-her children were estranged from her. She passed away about 3 years after she told her tale and watching this movie, it shows what too can happen to our David. He might be on his last foot, we don't know. I would hate to wake up and found out he died from his sickness and have you all going at it here to beat the band about what he has done to the average woman. You too must take charge of your own actions! Nobody twisted your arm and you got a brain to know right from wrong. I think some of you are just mad he didn't choose you, he chose another fan to share his life with. She might too have a bad go of it, and then she might be just what he might need right now-Stop being mean to her-she has done nothing to hurt anybody. Allow her to be excited she nabbed him and is enjoying her life with him. Don't be so cruel towards him, forgive him and move on and you will start to heal. You will never move on in life while still bogged down in the past with festering feelings of rejection. People do not like to be at anyone's party pooper escapades-lot of that going on here, sounds like 1 lone person doing it too. He might not be with us too much longer. If he did this to get ahead of his serving some jail time, oh well, that is on to him. I want to keep a good positive flow going for him, he might have been a chit in life, but at least he was never a chit to me, always a nice guy.
Just found this thread and I find it quite disgusting – talk about kick a man when he is down and sick. What a next of vipers – airing your dirty linen in public and acting like spoilt babies because he has found a girlfriend and doesnt want you any more. This is cyberbullying at its worse. Oh and most of you haven't the courage to put your proper names. Pity perhaps if you had Mr Cassidy could have sued you for defamation of character. Whatever he is or isn't or has done in the past is not for a public forum. You all ourght to get a life and feel really ashamed of yourselves!
Sorry to disappoint you, rock me baby, but this is freedom of speech in the public domain. As it stands, “Mr. Cassidy” would be hard pressed to sue anyone for “defamation of (his) character,” especially given his specific “character” traits & defects. It would be up to him disprove anyone to the contrary. Since “Mr. Cassidy” continually brings himself into the public forum, whatever “he is or isn’t or has done in the past” is up for public discussion. Doubtful that the vast majority of anyone here needs “get a life” and/or “feel really ashamed” of themselves.
and your proper name is....... Rock Me Baby?
Thank you. "Rock Me Baby".....couldn't have said it better myself.....
If David began to sue for defamation of character, he would have to begin with himself. He is his own worst enemy. He wouldn't do it anyway, because whatever is left of his career would be finished. He has abused family and friends. I think about his children, what a sad state affairs.
A public figure who has made himself a threat to the public safety appears on a public TV program where the public is then invited to comment. Good! The public's comments have provided far more insight into who this person is than anything this person himself will ever say. ....this person who has somehow managed to avoid both jail and rehab.
Keep the comments coming!
Hi Guess those hard core fans advocate abuse on any level is okay by DC-amazing-
The person to be sued for defamation of character would be Mr Cassidy! He has lied about the character of MANY!! Rock Me Baby and Oh Boy certainly did not read this blog in it's entirety and haven't a clue and clearly DO NOT know him. There is no jealousy, only pity, for the fool of a fan currently his girlfriend who is technically committing adultery with a married man.
Excuse me but I have read every single post on this blog and furthermore can assure you that I do know him personally
Miss rock me, how are you feeling right now being that you have read every post and know him personally ? It must certainly be confusing and hard to swallow the huge divergence in opinion. That is understandable. This is the epitome of what narcissists/alcoholics do. I am so sad for him and what has come to pass.
For goodness sake! Why don't you leave him alone? Leave his innocent girlfriend alone? Leave his life alone? Unless you support him, pay his bills, feed and clothe him, nobody has anything else to say. He has a problem. Why are you people so hell bent on pointing out he is a married man and his girlfriend is committing adultery? No, she is not. You have no idea what is going on behind his closed door. Do you know as fact he is doing something, and if he is, why is it any of your business? He is free and over 21. A lot of us have read this blog and there is one person in here who is overly pushy, feeling of how he dropped her. Unless you were 15 2 weeks ago, you need to move on. Nobody is sending anyone to jail and by the way, why is it you feel all this adultery is going on when you were under age and going to his room? Pot meet Kettle?
love when people justify and act like then they are better. Business, well David made it everyone's business. Give me a break party girl!
100% Agree! His private life is of nobody else's business. How dare someone pluck a facebook insert and bring it over here for all to read. Why are you so interested in his girlfriend? Why do you say these things about her? You do not know her. Why do you need to feel like you are trying to control him? He always did have a problem with certain fans. Please stop this. Please stop. This is not right. You really need to let him go. Please.
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!
I TOO AM CONSORTING WITH A MARRIED MAN- HOW'S ABOUTS DEMS ROTTEN APPLES? I THINK AM CONSORTING WITH A MARRIED MAN – WAIT....LET ME CHECK.....................................................................
YES, I AM IN FACT CONSORTING ALL OVER WITH A MARRIED MAN AND HIS NAME IS DAVID TOO
I'M SO LUCKY! YIPEE :D
He has never been free as far as I know. His concerts are expensive and well worth it
The girlfriend isn't the innocent party you say. She's knowingly, willingly consorting with a married man. Theirs is indeed an adulteress affair. That she continues to flaunt, especially in the faces of David's wife & children doesn't say much about her sense of character. Fans who've supported David through his recording sales, concert appearances, book sales, etc. are paying his bills, feeding & clothing him. So, yes, we do have a right to comment. While the girlfriend may not be committing adultery herself (she's not married), she sure is in collusion with it. By all accounts, she makes no apologies & appears quite proud of herself for landing the "catch" that is David Cassidy, a 64 year old adolescent who refuses to grow up. David's not free & he won't be free until the divorce is final.
If there was abuse on you, why did you not bring charges against him? Love him or hate him, he has a right to do whatever he wants to do, including messing up his own life! Why are you so mean and nasty to him? Either sue him, sell your story to the highest bidder or leave it alone and move on! You know, even Jesus will forgive you if you allow him to do so, he died for our sins, get it? So why can't you forgive him and move on? Or don't forgive him and still move on.
I hope whatever he is doing, he is being honest and getting his life in order. I hope he isn't hiding something worse. He is a good guy, but look how his button are pressed here, just imagine what happens in real life with him. I saw him do a great gesture at his own concert. He stepped outside before the show started and 2 girls were disappointed they did not have tickets-he told management to let them in and give them seats. He did not try and pick them up, did not ask for any numbers-he had his entire family with him, it was a great night
KNOCK IT OFF ALREADY!!! The only business he had was allowing you people into his life to show he has a problem, why he did it is of no concern to any of us. We got his whole life story, habits and everything else in here including harming animals which I do NOT believe at all! Boy, some people in here, give them an inch and they take over yammering about how he harmed them. Did you ever move on? I feel so sorry for you to waste time and tell the world what a tool he is-So what? We all can agree to disagree, but my goodness, what else can we possibly know about? Does he use Charmin or Northern? Dial or Zest? Suave or Biolage?
BEST OF LUCK, TEEN IDOL! YOU CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING! WE LOVE YOU, WELL, THE ONES WHO REALLY DO LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU GAVE US EYE CANDY AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE :D
Sybil.....Party of 25, Your Table is Ready :D
he has done many kind and generous things behind the scenes in recent years that the public knows nothing about, expecting nothing In return. I for one was the recipient of such kindness. please get therapy if you are unable to recover from the wrongs you feel were done to you and go on and attempt to live a positive life with what is left of your life.
Generous things, I have know doubt but I do remember on a video with he got his DUI in Florida, he said the the patrol officer. "You know who I am, don't you? I did fundraising for the State Patrol so many times, what I have done for you and you are treating me this way/" So it would be one thing to do nice things and keep your mouth quiet about it. It is another to use your generosity to keep out of trouble. Positive? So I guess the victims can overlook his abuse.
Interesting is correct on that statement. He did in fact say words like that, like he is saying I washed your back now you wash mine. So then it makes it ok to break the law? There is a word for those kinds of actions. Like greasing somebody's palm in higher office. If that is all he does these generous things for then, maybe he should keep doing them, but aware that people know what he is now up to. Sounds just like a get out of jail free card. Do you think this is why he went on this show?
Just because he gave fundraisers to the State Police or whoever, does not give him the right to break the law. That is childish. The cop should have turned right around and said Thank you for all the funds you have raised for us, it makes our job much easier, but because you do this for us, we have to do this for you as we have rules to keep the public safe from people like you. Then the officer could also have said when asked Don't you know who I am? The officer should have right then said back to him Yes, I do, you are DUI.
You misunderstand. I am not speaking of things done for the police or public figures, I am speaking of things done for private citizens with no reward.
I like your thoughts rock me baby! You know him personally then – how much of this here is pure fantasy? He always seemed to me certainly n the 70s/80s a lonely man with very few close friends and in need of real love.
Let's not start rehashing his past again. If anyone paid attention, he lived with his roommate for a long time until he married his 1st wife. Think this stems from the fact nobody was really ever at home for him growing up so then he got into trouble, got into the lifestyle of the day. I think he is very fearful of winding up by himself. He never had been too much all alone, not even on tour. I know him as well. He is a nice guy actually, but he and he knows this so no threat of lawsuit, but he isn't that smart in real life, he is very generous, not like Elvis though. I have such a cache of things he had given to me in my youth from his television show days and his heavy tour days, going to San Diego, going to San Bernardino, going up North to see him, getting postcards from New York and Boston, Philly. I'm getting too old to hang on to them anymore, might as well put them up to this EBay, there are also plenty of private collection pictures of us. Ladies, be good to him, ok? He never came with a self help manual, none of us did ;)
David's mom gave up her own television & stage career to be there for him during his teen-aged years. He was never abandoned or left alone to fend for himself. There was always somebody there. Attempting to blame his sole, responsible parent is misplaced. At some point, whether at 18 or 21, David should have grown up. He hasn't.
Boy HOW DEE! What you smoking in here? Somebody's rubber soul or SOS ??? Same person, all these different names, typing like it many people here fighting for him, yea sure. Somebody getting paid one dollar for each post or ???
David is a good guy, as far as entertainers go he does alright. He has to play to his fans, but boy, I just bet he would do sooo very well in Da Blues! Transparent what causes him to drink. Get a load of some of these posts. Do you act like this in front of him as well? I need an aspirin now!
You aren't serious? This goes here? Shame on you who are jealous of his girlfriend. Nobody's business. You must live a lonely life to sit here and think of what they might be doing to cause adultery. Why do you care? you gonna do a citizen's arrest on him? on her? on both? Do you have a picture of this? I want to see some solid proof. It IS the 21st Century, right? They answer to their maker like I answer to mine, ok?
I shake my head and can't believe it, I just cannot believe his so called fans. I chime in and also say NO WONDER THE POOR MAN DRINKS!
Alcohol is a chemical addiction, not caused by fans or any other person.
Mae, he doesn't need you more than he ever did before! Adultery is defined in the dictionaries. David's still married. The girlfriend is not. GF's posted many a photo of their holidays together on her FB page. Maura Rossi. They were certainly not in the Caribbean last year as platonic friends, sleeping in separate rooms, remaining celibate. One can only wonder how his wife must have felt during that time, knowing he was off with another woman.
You ARE joking, right? Why do you have it in for his girlfriend? Who died and made you the boss of him? You jealous she got him, I know. I swear, I hope he marries her on 4th of July. Why you being mean to his outgoing? spouse? How do you know what SHE is doing?
WHY DO YOU GIVE A CARE WHAT HE IS DOING IN HIS LIFE? YOU DONOT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING. AND THEY MIGHT JUST BE HAVING SEPERATE ROOMS IN THE CARRIBEAN. YOU TELL US ALL WHEN YOU ARE REAL SURE, K? SHOW US THE PROOF! OR BETTER YET, SHUT UP ON HIS LADY AND SHUT UP ON HIM. SO NOT YOUR BUSINESS. SO NOT ANYBODYS BUSINESS WHO HE GOES WITH. IT IS NOT A CRIME ANY MORE.
Facts are facts. There are no jealousies involved. You hope he marries her on the 4th of July? Do you know something we don't? Will David's divorce be final then? Or are you suggesting he commit bigamy in order to be with his prize? We know what they've been doing & with whom. Girlfriend tells us all about it. Just can't keep her teen-aged boasts to herself. If you believe David & Maura slept in separate rooms while in the Caribbean, you're naive to the ways of washed-up teen idol's ways. It is our business. They've made it our business. But for the DUIs, Girlfriend's incessant bragging, etc., we would largely have been none the wiser. And yes, while prosecutions are rare, Adultery is still a recognized crime in many states.
David's wife is hardly "outgoing." She's still there & will continue to be until they're finally divorced. What do you mean by your comment "How do you know what SHE is doing?" What are you trying to say? That she's committing adultery, too? If anything, David's wife will be relieved to let him go after all of the harms, humiliations & embarrassments he's caused.
Seems as though Somebody should keep their mouth AND legs crossed.....! Draw'n flies, m'Lady!
Toxic people IS also a chemical reaction so if he has a few Toxic people in his life-Action, chances are, he going to go for a drink-Action causes reaction-
Da Deet Da Deet Da Deet ....That's All, Folks !
Please leave him and his woman alone now, please.
I think there are people posting here who are close to David and, quite right, trying to put others in their place and telling us something. Someone said he might not be with us much longer, I pray to God that is not the case. although I accept he is very ill. He has given so much to this world in terms of his music and songwriting, my heart would break if that happened.
David has made poor choices in his past-and those deep secrets have haunted him. He knows what the truth is. He drinks to forget. I feel for his family and children. It affects them. I have been sober 29 years, active in AA twelve step work. He has abused people-typical of this disease. As drunks we cause harm to many people for the sake of the drink. He has no choice to drink-to drink is to die for him.
I just watched the whole video. I thought someone said they didn't let him finish because he was drunk. It is over 27 minutes long.
Check this out:
It was just loaded on today-that is very interesting?
oh my word, His poor family and children-Wow! blame, blame, blame...thats what drunks do-turn the tables-BS. BS. BS....so sad, this man has a voice from the heavens. He can't make eye contact with the host-not good and very telling. When I had to make amends to those I caused harm to, my sponsor said, you look them in the eye when you speak about the wrong you have done and tell the truth. He has a long way to go!
David’s mom gave birth to him in NYC & brought him home to her parents’ house in W. Orange, New Jersey, where he lived & was raised until moving with her to Los Angeles in 1962. David didn’t live in NYC until his later, teen-aged years. While speaking so warmly & devotedly of his grandfather, he makes no mention of his grandmother. He’s never made any mentions of her at all. One has to wonder why, especially since he was her only grandchild. Interesting that he counts the birth of his son, Beau & his concert performances at Madison Square Garden as “lifetime highlights,” but makes no mention of his daughter. One has to wonder, again, why. Had it been anyone other than he, David’s admittance of both an estranged wife & a girlfriend would have been shocking. Disgraceful!
I think he lived with his dad when in NYC as they too had a play which ran from Oct '68 until Jan 5th, 1969. They leased a very fancy castle from a director friend of Jack's. His stage play opened on Jan 2 and closed on Jan 6th. Both theaters are with in a block of each other. His time in New York was pretty limited if you remember what he said in his books, by his 18th birthday, it was his dad who helped him to buy his Mustang. A bit shocking not bringing up his daughter, but the man who raised her is known to her as Dad as she has said. This was very rattling to watch as many things were said that were not exactly true, but then again, he probably cannot remember things. His take on the jail he went to and the air of confidence when he said he knew he wasn't going to jail, that did it. He did sort of take a jab at his soon to be Ex, by adding the girlfriend wasn't the nicest thing he could have done. He laid it out and brought it up like being a little mean. Well, it is television and like a book, the person can do his own storyline pretty much. This was a very sad show. This benefitted no one at all.
So all these people here who believe he had a meltdown, was taken off the set, lawyers pulled the plug on this interview – you should be ashamed. Bet you have all sat and watched this, an honest and revealing interview with a man who was once the most handsome man on the planet. Hard to believe it is the same person, but he is still a fine actor.
if you'll recall, in reading these posts, only a small segment of the interview was originally posted. The interview itself was never aired by CNN. It gives pause to asking yourself why. Was it because of his drunken, bloated, disheveled appearance? His failed narcissistic attempts at sympathy & self-pity? His inconsistencies in storytelling? His backstage antics, especially when he's had more than one too many? Sorry to say he's no longer the "fine actor" he used to be.
Even David could tell that his charms weren't working & Piers wasn't exactly buying. Not a truly honest interview in the least bit. Rehabs should have taught him something, if not coming clean with his past & making amends with his present.
only a few discussed the cut off of the CNN segment. If you look at the date of the complete upload it was yesterday. It would of certainly been better if it hadn't aired the full. He just made a fool out of himself. very sad. ashamed? really? umm;–he should be ashamed of making a mockery of his alcoholism and the people who love him. So not so fast in throwing mud-
I could almost swear this segment was a do over, Why you ask? Only because Piers said something about this being his 2nd DUI ? (It was his 3rd) and the way it panned back to him he added he was only out a certain amount of days, his explanation went on before getting the 3rd? Also seemed like it was edited. It did seem to take a long time to post this part when all the others were already taped. I could almost swear too that perhaps he was told not to include speaking about his daughter. True or ? there was something in the sites that mentioned there is some kind of a something on him from her mother, something matter of fact about holding him in contempt in the courts over something. Don't know, but guessing this was some type of attempt to only help himself. A crying shame though. He was such a talented handsome little man in the 70's.
I watched the segment. My mouth dropped, so typical and validates everything about Mr. Cassidy-"Sue and I were amicable about our settlement, I was hurt when she filed" and didn't tell me- She saw pictures of my girlfriend and I then she changed her mind." Hurt? really-this man is narccissisitic. I am hurt my son, my wife, fans, blah blah blah. David's motto–"enough about me, what do you think about me"
I got the same feeling – re-edited, re-done, addition/deletions?
He seems to have no touch with reality. And blaming Sue for not wanting to keep everything between the lawyer and not go public – of course he doesn't want to go public – he had the girlfriend years before and it would make him look bad. Not mentioning the grandmother, daughter – maybe he has a problem with women and thinks they are inferior and just a toy for his pleasure. And is it not true, along with the concerts he did for Community Service for the first DUI – wasn't the Alzheimer's speaking Community Service as well? And speaking of humbleness – I don't really think that's one of his traits.
I'm no expert, but yes, now that you mention it, he did seem to jump the gun and go on for Alzheimer's research when he got the 1st DUI, but before he was inside the court. Seems he "bought time" on that one too until he could do what he had to do to show the court he was doing something about his problem, he recognized he has a problem every time he gets stopped.
Yes, Ann. My opinion, it was in poor taste when he went on about their amicable agreement and then she went off and filed for divorce after she knew about the girlfriend ? I don't know, but I do think he had this lady in his life way before she filed for divorce, it shows in the timeline in websites. Got the feeling he was like saying " we will formally separate, but I will have my cake and eat it too" . This wasn't his 1st cheat. I just think Sue had enough between the drinking and wanton life-He is getting old and he does not want to deal with it, like most men his age, except he took it to the extreme and got caught every which way.
He has been having his cake and eating it for the last 12 years in plenty . I guess his current squeeze is blissfully unaware
Ha, well...All I know is that he is living with his gal now-his items are gracing her condo and she too has had horse, this is proof and in direct contrast as to what somebody yelled about earlier-somebody mentioned she had a horse connection, funny, his ex confirmed that and then somebody called it out and now-Proven he did pick on somebody who has a dollar to help in his quest. How much can he possibly have left with all the head doctors he mentioned he sees on a daily basis and all this rehabilitation he is going through?????????? He always has other girls hidden away like Howard Hughes, except he does not treat them nice and buy them things that they can hock. Give up on him since he gave up on himself long ago. He reminds me of my ex husband-lovely man, drank like a fish, wound up dying-end of it all.
The girlfriend doesn't know the closets, the attic and the storage rooms are overflowing with skeletons! Oh what fun and fairytales abound in such ignorance!
I will look this over again, but could it be possible that he did go back and get the original re-edited and added on to? I am not trying to be mean, it just appears as if Piers was speaking of 2 only DUI's and there is a bit of a gap when he announces 3 DUI's. I can wonder if part of this was taped at another time for only the New York infraction. It was going pretty good, but in the middle and on, it seems it was beat everybody up time, including the cop shop ( no way possible they took him to a certain part of South Los Angeles to stick him with Crips and Bloods for the fun of it ). I had the video paused as we sat and ate breakfast and my husband glanced at it and said 'that guy is drunk' , this was when his was in the somewhat down position. Agreed, people maybe jumped the gun in here, but the insane way some of you have been treating him and his condition, I don't know. I can see the argument and the reasoning, somewhat-Somewhat. I would have never believed he was such a two part character. Maybe it is time he does retire and enjoy his time, what is left, quietly.
I agree with most of what you've said, but I don't agree that the people in here may have jumped the gun or have otherwise been insane in treating David and his alcoholic condition. Those of us who have been disrespected and mistreated by him have spoken their truths. They've been with us some of us for a very long time. There are a lot of people who feel as you do that they never would have believed him to be a two part character. He was Keith Partridge, beloved lead singer of The Partridge Family. But, as David has always said, he wasn't really Keith. The real David was someone foreign to him. Sad to see such a downward spiral but I can't say I'm surprised. .
Don't want to devote too much time here, but it is interesting to say the least ! I took somewhat offense when he said he did not do drugs. So did he lie in his book? Did his friends lie in their books? Also he said he did not drink, all this was recent since 2002? Guess again. Some people in here tagged it as far back as 1978 or earlier ( I have seen the photos of glass of something on table, in hand, etc., ) He should not keep glamorizing himself and cleaning up an already tarnished image from years ago. I never thought of him as a Keith, but I also never thought he could be continually so disrespectful and annoying on some aspects to the very people, mostly women, the same ones who keep him well fed and in awe of his idol stature. I just can't help but wonder why some of the people here got him pegged perfectly. some do not want to hear it and then he sits there and says he is foreign to himself? I think he has been exposed for a long time, he is just now catching up to this revelation. Sorry for him. Back to work. Thank you, interesting place here.
Sorry for so many postings and typo "up there". Reading Ann's post here, Do you think, could it be possible ? that he actually hates Women? This could be very well possible! I never did think of that! You know, going back to the old rumor, he really never did defend his mother in articles when they made mistakes and to this day of saying Shirley was his mom. a lot of us knew the difference, but some did not and to this day there are questions. He did not have nice things to say about a certain actress he was dating around the partridge days, Nothing good about ex wife #2 and she gave him the knowledge in horses to race, he didn't have nice things to say about his daughter's mother, no nice things now to say about soon to be ex #3, he sort of got upset about his step mother's book and screams of lawsuit supposedly, he seemingly has treated women rudely. Come to think of it, except for this short list, there has not been much in the way of a "woman figure" in his life, sounds like lack of respect and then the reason why he treats women the way he does. I really liked him for the longest time, still hold a little bit of feeling, but the bad outweighs all that Hollywood cracked him up to be. ps: I want to thank whoever for saying he was like our Elvis in our time-Yes, he was in a way. Happy Posting.
What needs to happen and what some of us that know him have continually tried to do is not play the yes man. He has so many fans in his life that continue to do this. Take a look at his website and his fan sites. Nice comments only all others are either called liars and haters or taken down. Call bs when you hear it and hold him accountable.
After watching this full interview, I have to agree with New Yorker that definitely David is still a good "actor".
I think Narcissists like David seems to be either believe the world they created for themselves or they think people are not smart enough to put two and two together. Add, too, another woman he hurt – Susan Dey. Also, he was going to take down his Facebook because of the bile people were sprewing. He cannot take the truth or someone saying "Look I've had enough, I'm not a fan anymore." Or even someone not being cruel but just stating a fact. And, I think it hard for some fans to realize that he is not who they thought he was – and some people you will never change their opinion because we are all different with different experiences that make us form certain opinions. And I also think when you witness things for yourself – such as being rude at a concert – or then 3 DUI's – those are facts which you cannot deny. And, let's face it, he could in his day, have almost anyone he wanted and that's how he learned to live – so you can speculate that there were many women throughout his lifetime. And like others have said, he stated in his book he did drugs when he was younger, drank, etc. – So was the book a lie – or what he is saying now a lie.
Thank you for including Susan Dey in David's ever-growing list of victims. She was so terribly hurt by his "C'Mon Get Happy" betrayals. And he professes, now, not to know why she hasn't spoken to him in more than 20 years?
Is it not very ironic that this show is affiliated with ABC, Disney and SONY! The very people he is now suing or trying to sue because they are using his likeness as Keith Partridge? Is that stupid? His straw man defense does not hold water. I think he did pay to have this redone. Watched it 3 times now and it is so spliced up and heavily edited. If he cannot be consistent with his 'true life stories', how is anybody going to believe him now? He made a lot of money off you and me too from his books nothing new, just re fabbed it and sent it out for the americans. Ack, he floated my boat when I was 12, the boat sank years ago. He just cant be trusted. How sad when all his fans put such love and trust into him.
Then there was Meredith, must not forget Meredith= she made him mad too and he ran her down relating to her hygiene habits-a vegan . did he take his facebook down ? nooo. and now we have his words he does not even do internet, he said so! so what are they talking about over there on his sites. they are putting words in his mouth to keep the club afloat. Why can't he be on his own site and chatting up his fans? BECAUSE HE DOES NOT CARE! Who is he anyway anymore? I maybe agree he maybe did demand either a do over and put this into his own hands. Got to remember, this show is now off the air, so whay show this video no so far past the due date? I think it was made way back when he got the DWI and wanted to air before that hearing, but he got another DUI between the time. DO OVER DO OVER DO OVER. Who needs this!
Meredith Baxter just before she became Baxter-Birney. His criticisms of her were the words of a scorned lover who also professed to once having had caring feelings for her. I remember her saying he was a "sweet boy," but couldn't imagine a future with him, especially since she had two small children at the time. David's never done anything in regards to his web sites. Fans who lavishly post in the hopes of his reading and responding to their messages are misled. He knows nothing of what goes on. You're right. He doesn't care. David's only abiding care, concern, consideration is for himself. Narcissists are like that. They only see one side of a two-way glass.
He really did never know what he wanted in a woman or a girl when it applied. He either has a nice girl like Merideth or he has the young girls at his gate 'checking things out' in the middle of the night. He made bad cracks just about everybody he was ever one night stood, strung along, dated or married. Runs down his children, runs down studios. Beats up the world one way or another. When is David going to stop blaming everybody for the tiniest little thing and start blaming himself? I caught his wrath many moons ago. I was 13 and just wanted to meet him-he was embroiled in a fight with one of his female fans, cursing her out, cursing out everyone, most terrible language I ever heard, didn't know what all it was about. What it was, was she thought she was his girl-she could have been 19 or 20 no idea, but see the pattern? Bad thing was, she brought her parents. It was something to witness 1970 in all it's glory.
Explain to us how, in your book YOU kept up with the story that girls were camping out at your house in Encino and you would go out there with your roommates and allow the girls to do things to all you. Now you are saying you had photographers out by those same gates. So did they by chance takes pics of what the girls were doing? It makes no sense the camera guys would be out at your house laying in wait. They sure weren't at the studios either, nor at the in' spots of your Hollywood. And this thing about going in through different gates at the studio. Come on now, there was only 1 gate and the service gate on Sherman Way, but that got locked up at 4 every day. Facts vs. stupidness.
Does the statement his-this segment was cancelled to air the missing aircraft ring a bell? And so we are led to believe that Mr. Morgan came back in order to film this after he said Goodbye? Because I see full interviews after this date. I think this was filmed much earlier than we were led to think for the sole purpose of showing the world he was off to Rehab and all that, but then sure does seem to be an addition here, there and everywhere. I bet this was filmed in the winter, before his transitional rehab but after his trip to the Jamaica islands
I know. Why doesn't somebody in here go and find another photograph and match it up to what a certain person put up on their page where it relates to the weather and how Central Park looked like on March 26? Then you will know for sure when this was filmed because the theater is in close area of the park and the park will be as barren or green. Check it out :D
Fact, it was still cold and barren in CP last month in Manhattan. You guys – – – – Really now?
Saw the video, David is full of hot air. You do have an allergy to alcohol and plugging the jug doesn't help. AA-12 step work- 4th step your resentment, how it affected you and what harm you caused: lying cheating, manipulating, stealing, greed-taking others dignity-4th column, how you set it up-how you retaliated. Just saw 27 minutes of you lying-Your son is a good guy and is smart-don't take his integrity away because you are mad at him! Get to your truth DC
Oh yes and he also has an allergic reaction to his fans or whatever the flavor of the argument is for that day. He was allergic to ezema medication when he said he used his wife's product in Vegas just before a concert-he claimed it was the best thing for him, then it was an allergic reaction to Dristan cold medicine again, do they still make that n in Vegas and again cold medicine at The Hollywood Celebrity Show. Send this man a case of Benadryl or Allerest, Lidocaine, something so he doesn't have to be allergic to the world no more. He said one time he was highly allergic to shellfish, but there is a youtube interview where he is eating crustaceans. He has never been allergic to anything but himself and his pipe stories
You are wrong. He said he got Cortizone shots in his vocal chords in Vegas and that in turn made him look like he was under the influence when he behaved like an ass at Southpoint. Sorry but no Dr. in his right mind would do that to a person who has a bad infection in his vocal chords. He had Glutch Throat, dryness form the weather and probably from more drinky.
This should be forgotten about. It is nothing more than glorified self promotion from an angry and lonely old soul. He's so mad at his ex but she is having one grand time with His family on Her birthday, her son is with them all, she doesn't look to be the bad guy in all this, quite the opposite. She has got a life and is full of life, but do not understand why they support her and not their own closer family member. Pictures don't lie, but then too, she is pretty chummy with his publicist too. Either they all lie or he is really hitting the skids, made all mad-his own brothers are supporting his ex more than they support him, that's how the pics shows. He was so cute 45 years ago, now he is old and tired.
Can a person who has gone through this AA or this Rehab for the alcohol explain to us who do not know what AA is; the steps, please? I certainly do not know a drinking persons characteristics when they go out of bounds and become alcoholics. My sisters and I have supported David for a very long time here in Chicago area and we all feel like we have been used and lied to. I thought people like him had higher standards for their fans and the public in general?
Just as Ann Soulgirl or someone in here nailed it – He is going to go ahead and do Community Service all over the country! IOW. Lots of Concerts ! He has it down pat I tell ya! Just like the Alzheimers thing, he is going to promise x amount of funds into his recovery treatment foundation, talk about the subject and then-tax break and take that 80% off the top, free trip all over and who pays? You All Do! Wonderful!
Very sad interview. Sounded like he was very regretful, but the thing I don't get between all this is he tells his wife he loves her, while blaming her for pulling the rug and filing for a divorce all the while he's going heavily with another woman? I wonder how that made the girlfriend feel when he mentioned he still loved Sue? Confusing.
I hope he gets through his problem and comes back stronger than ever. I have fond memories of him, all of them very good and kind. I do not like seeing my childhood crush like this. He's what made every girl's life go round the world when we were 12 thru 21. He is so sad here, very sad, given up.
Charlotte, Was that the same article when the writer smelled marijuana in his house? I remember the pot smoking article from the 70's, his room mate was running around nakked out at the pool then came the nakked photos in Rolling Stone Magazine.
David’s saying he’s only been drinking since 2002, isn’t the truth. In his Rolling Stone interview of May 11, 1972 (“Naked Lunch Box”), which he described at the time as being an “honest portrayal,” the writer (Robin Green) describes him as being “. . . exhausted, stoned and drunk . . .”
I'm going to go out on a limb here and defend his comment of drinking since 2002. Did he say he never drank a drop at all? I may have to watch it again but I took it to mean that was when it got out of control and let it take him where he didn't want it to go And becoming a full fledged alcoholic That being said he needs to come clean on all if it He has more addictions than just alcohol
David states in his book (1st one)-he was drinking and doing drugs and that Sue said, "i love you no matter what"-He said that had alot of weight for him. Contradictions.-So David, on the interview stating: "I love you Sue I just want you to be fair"-to who? David of course. He has a new song called: Alcoholism: I, I, I, what about me, me me and be nice to me, me, me," Sad, this guy had such talent, a magical voice but it is all a waste & he is only to blame.
He's lived his whole life in denial so why stop now? He's always been a wasted talent he could have been so much more and it's so much easier to blame the drink the drugs the groupies the fans his raising his exes than for him to realize the common denominator is him. He has heard so many times that people want to hear other songs than I think I love you but he refuses he's lazy, doesn't practice, go to rehearsals and do all the things talent requires
He's hot...he can sing me the same songs over and over anytime he wants to!!!!
Does anyone know any more about the abuse of the cats?
He may have done some crazy things and poor choices but I don't believe the animal thing. That is way too out there even for him.
Highly doubt the animal abuse. He was so small when he lived with his grandparents. How could he possibly reach a clothesline? By13 he was living in Beverly & Westwood area. The many things I caught, he downplayed the fiancee thing. That might have been the thing right there that might have sent his soon to be ex to the lawyers office. What did everyone hear on the DWI report? Fiancee and not girlfriend. In this interview he said girlfriend, downplaying it. Boy, he sure knows how to make people in his life angry, doesn't he? I'd be livid if he said I was just a girlfriend in public when already established I am a fiancée.
Also cannot blame the fans or whomever for his drinking and drugs. As he stated, he took them and this was way before any TV show. Remember, he was up in Frisco and helping himself to a stash of drugs in a bottle. He was also up in some canyon off Malibu, drugging up there with his friends, then there are other biographies which name him as a friend and what he was doing with booze and drugs way before any tv show or theater. It would make sense if you know the area in which he grew up.......pretty much smack dab around the corner from where he was living, whether his mom and step dad or dad and stepmom. It was the 60's, days of free love, rock and roll, doping and drinking. I could understand why he would go truant from school with his friends. He might be drinking more now as it seems he has lost his voice, not commanding the big places anymore, but then who is? and unfortunately, he is getting older.
Drinking and poss. cheating and drugs were also the undoing of his 1st marriage as his movie portrayed .
It was also the undoing of his 2nd marriage and now his third. This new one must be desperate and delusional.
Soon-to-be ex-wife seems to be a fairly savvy business lady. David may have bitten off more than he can chew & certainly more than he can ever swallow this time around. He's asking her to be "fair." So, she's supposed to feel sorry for him & support him in some way. Not going to happen.
I do not know what he would mean by fair. Between the 2 of them, they didn't have much of anything to begin with, it was his second ex's friends who let them borrow the flat in the UK when he was doing the Romance album. Now he did hide the receipts from her, brings it back out via the US. I think he needs to be fair to that Ex and give her her fair share back since he is talking fair shares. Think we all know he lied to his wife and got somebody else pregnant, not only once, but known to some then getting on dreaded page 6 of The Post. He needs to give some fair shares back on that whole account. I wouldn't be so surprised to hear he would sue his ex now for shares on her product, since she signed up a ton of his fans and achieved what she achieved, but then of course, he got DUI in her free car she won from her products' corp. He needs to stay calm and break away. He can't go sue happy on everyone when he himself is so underhanded. Ask Nancy!
Maybe he is mad because his soon to be ex might sue the feeance as a co conspirator. the gal has moola, was the one who did the facelift on their home interior after they kicked out the renters but before they sold it.
Does it matter what he did 50 years ago? What matters is now, yesterday is gone and no promise of tomorrow. This has nothing to do with anyone else but him. Allow him to do what he feels he needs to do. We are not a bunch of Manchurian Candidates here, my good god! If this is what he says, take it as such or ignore it altogether. I think he should be redeemed. I like him just fine and have for many years. Sorry he had to skirt his life and the public persona got shoveled all over, but that is him. His business, his life. As long as he does not hurt or harm me in any way which he has not I'm fine with him as an entertainer who gave me a lot of good music. Peace be with you all.
Choosing to "ignore it" only enables him to continue on. It's the sad, washed up, wasted story of his life. Everyone's supposed to feel sorry for him & to excuse him because of who he used to be or who they once believed him to be. Three DUIs in less than 3 years have made him a known societal danger. How can you be so sure you won't be his next victim? That you won't encounter him on a highway/freeway and that he won't seriously injure, harm, maim or even kill you due to his chronic alcoholism (and who knows what else). You're willing to offer him redemption and to give him that chance? Oh, please!
If he ran me down I would hope my family would be wise enough to sue his estate and whoever else responsible.
Why do you question what he said about his son being very important to him? HE HELPED IN THE DELIVERY OF BEAU! He was NOT afforded that chance with his daughter since he did not know if she was really his or not. TRUTH compared to your Gossip and Rumors win out every time :D
David was afforded the very same chance with Katie that he had with Beau. It was HIS CHOICE not to participate, just as it was his choice not to have a relationship with her and to forbid his immediate family members from doing the same. Do you seriously believe he didn't know Katie was his daughter? Yes, he was sued for paternity. Yes, it was to confirm paternity. Yes, it was also to establish child support and visitation if David so desired. Those of us who've expressed our opinions and our truths stand by them. David has made this our business and continues to do so. Girlfriend has also made this our business. Had he wanted to remain private, David shouldn't have gotten himself into the DUIs, kept the girlfriend under wraps, declined to be interviewed, etc. Girlfriend's not his wife. If she wants him, she's more than welcome to have him – after the divorce. Girlfriend didn't get him into rehab. His DUI lawyers made plea deals with the Florida and California courts. Saying girlfriend may be his sponsor, Gia, is ridiculous. She's an interior designer based in Ft. Lauderdale. She is not a certified alcohol treatment counselor. Commenting as you did makes you sound childish. The kind of fan David wants, needs, deserves. Someone who will blindly follow him into the abyss that has become his sad life. BeemerGal, your comment is juvenile as well.
Going by what's been said here, it sounds to me like your TRUTHS are based on GOSSIPS and RUMORS as you've come to know them. Not that you know of them firsthand.
Ahhhhhhhhhh....another one!! you just cannot see the forest for the trees!!! open your eyes and look around
He was in the UK when Katie was born. When he was told, he was still married to wife 2. He told her it was some crazy fan, a stalker of a fan, then came the papers for lawsuit after the little girl was born and that's when it became news in the papers. He knew because he always ran back to that woman when things got too rough like he ran to Sue. Somebody else here is right, all of them were all going at it at the same time, he knew that girlfriend about 2 years before he met Sue.
This spot has turned more into of a place for airing what he did to certain women here and it keeps going towards being very mean to his girlfriend of the moment, not his obvious drinking problem – – – – – it started out and being vile and mean. Nobody cares. The ones who love him and who will stick to him will defend him. He is a human being. If he hurt you or did unjust towards you, you do need to forget about it if you are not willing to accept a shared responsibility. His trust is earned. When he comes back full force, I will be at his concert no matter where it is. I have traveled as far as Florida, seen him at Steel Pier, Las Vegas, California. I spend on him because he brings me joy and reminds me of my happiness as a child, my entire family love him.
It's not going to be "when he comes back full force" but "if." He's burned his bridges in so many places. None of the big venues will touch him. Too much of a risk. If he's able to get back it will probably be limited to small clubs, state fairs, things like that. Not going to see the likes of Broadway, MSG, Wembley, Hammersmith again.
I'm sorry, but I don't think any of this is about being vile and mean to his girlfriend of the moment. Nobody cares? There are people who do seem to care about what's been going on. If he hurt you or did unjust things to you, would you be so willing to forget about it. If he's hurt others who were teen-agers, there is no shared responsibility. SVU can tell you that. David would have been an adult taking advantage of a child.
Geezus K Rist! You do not have the right to keep commenting on what David can or cannot do, Who do you think you are, DANMTW? His private life is none of concern. Would you like for him to dictate what you could or could not do it if you had an active life with a man? None of his true fans will even set foot in here, not from his sites because they know who you are. You the one who wants to keep sending him off to the Rehab in your mind? Maybe he is under his girlfriends care. Maybe she had to sign something to keep him straight and narrow and put up good faith money. You don't know. Yea I happen to know him and his family. I know some of his family live in Ballard. I know a lot of things. I think it is for the best you stop pontificating on your pulpit here before we break out the hymmnals and sing Shall we gather at the River. Get Real and leave him, just leave him.
DANMTW>???? What world are you living in? you don't know jack about what you are speaking of
WHY YOU GOT IT IN FOR HIM? HE IS A PUBLIC PERSON WHEN HE ENTERTIANS; PRIVATE PERSON OTHERWISE WHAT HE DOES IS OF NO IMPORTANCE TO YOU AT ALL!!! ALL I READ IS HE HAS HIS GIRLFRIEND HIS GIRLFRIEND HIS LADY NOT YOUR BUSINESS AT ALL!!!!! SHE PROBABLY HAS PAID HER DUES SO SHE HAS A RIGHT TO HAVE HIM NOW, MAYBE SHE GOT HIM TO REHAB, MAYBE SHE IS HIS SPONSOR. HOW DO YOU, YOU DON'T.. SO MEAN YOU ARE!!!!!
If you want to be taken seriously, I'd suggest you stop yelling and learn correct grammar. Otherwise people just consider your comments nonsense.
S T H U!!!!!!!!!!!!
I find it extremely funny that the one lone non Cassidy fan is sitting here all alone talking to herself. 50 different names; 1 woman with nothing else to do than run Cassidy down and get righteous on his girlfriend all day long while at work. You will not have him ever again, guaranteed. Now she is going to give grammar lessons, what next? bad conduct lessons too?
LONG LIVE DAVID BRUCE CASSIDY! 5, 550,0000 FANS CANNOT BE WRONG!!!!!!!
You got it wrong Cassidy fan, if you look back at my earlier posts you'll see I only made comments about the gf in response to what was said here. I'm just a long time fan who is really saddened but also very interested in all this. So..since you seem to be focused on one person using different names, I could say the same about a few posts here defending him too! Seriously though, Gia's post sounds ignorant. No grammar lesson, just pointing out my perception.
Honey, you are sooo out of touch and in the dark!! you got no idea how many have been there In the past and how many are continuing on into the future!!! LAWD A MERCY!! Girl!! you are so in the dark you need a SEARCHLIGHT!
How do you know it is one person with different names? did you hack into the site? Hope not because it is certainly illegal.
Placing bets it's all marty :D
Sorry but your wrong. I know which posts are mine and which ones aren't. Why must you think there is only one? And while im not concerned about his gf nor have I posted about her I have every right to be upset, but that is a conversation for another day.
There is not just "One" lone Cassidy fan here......that would also be "me".....since I was 17....forty-some years now-through boyfriends and a husband (who travelled with me through the years to see concerts from coast to coast, broadway plays, Vegas-through it all , and, even though there are some things I certainly don't agree with and wish he had made better choices (and, have been disappointed with some things) ....I will always still support him unconditionally....he was such a huge part of my life and meant so much to me....he was my one and only Teenage Idol and ave me such happiness all my life--how can I not, despite everything that has been said here, forget everything he has meant to me practically my whole life. I, too, hope he recovers from this and comes back-just as he always has....I wish him health, happiness and love for a long time....because I know how much David and Sue loved each other and how good they were together for so long--I still hope somehow they can find their way back to each other...doens't seem right that they are not together any more. I realize that I am not the only one with an opinion on this--this blog speaks for itself--I am not saying I am right and everyone else is wrong as everyone has the right to have their own opinion. I guess I just want to keep my wonderful memories of him just a little longer. Sometimes you wonder if you ever get the chance to meet your idol, would you be disappointed--would they be mean, cruel and uncaring...fortuneately for me, my first meeting with him came when I was "39".. (I had waited for that since I was "17")....he certain;y DID NOT disappoint. My husband and I spoke with him for a good while at a signing (he couldn't have been sweeter...didn't mind how many pictures my husband took of us-he was very kind and caring to everyone.....that is the "David" I always want to remember. We also met him several other times at different concert and aftr his Broadway shows--still the same....he just seemed so happy and grateful that his fans were there for "him". I also met his wife Sue at one of his shows in Redondo Beach, CA--she, too, is a sweetheart-very obvious that these two once had a very special love together...I think this is what hurts me the most-how his illness has affected his "personal" life.....he was so happy during those years. I really and truly hopes he gets better; as I; for one. would never be the same without this very special, talented man who was a part of my life for so very long......
Thank you Debbie
I have come to the ultimate conclusion that you are 100% FOS!. You just want to disrupt anything you can to get his attention. Well, you have succeeded! The profile in here fits only 1 woman who want to take up all the time in here to spew the hatred for who supposedly used them. Trust me, he would never look at you twice, racing from a blazing inferno! Stifle yourself already! This board is actually closed off and only the janitors at the site are answering. Piers has left the building. Go Home.
Who is this "you " person you are yelling at and what the heck are you talking about?????
OH WISE ONE- how deluded and ignorant you are. If only you knew the truth. There are so many women he don't know which way to jump!!!
There is now another interview with another television celebrity from San Diego, Bree Walker was a news reporter who was also unfortunately arrested for DUI not long ago. Listen to her interview compared to this man's. As different as night and day. She too had a revelation, but you can tell she REALLY feels remorse and very badly for what she did, and it was only the 1 DUI. She wants to help others as she said after seeing the only 1 DUI arrest picture of her, it was humiliation for her and never again will it happen, she also felt great remorse how she could have killed somebody and she does not want anybody else to feel like she had done. She will not go to one of those spa type rehabs, she is facing her demons straight on and very brutally honest. You can sure see the difference between her and him. Those that know David and have known him for years, know he will never change. He only cries Uncle when he is in danger of being arrested or caught doing something he shouldn't have done. He was mortified of going to jail-So he thinks by his doing this, jumping the gun to show he is going to the rehab to better himself and then when no one is looking, he bails off for The Bahamas??? and with another woman??? So he can stay one step of the gavel and the cubicle. He is not crying for her, for his son or anyone else but only for him. How can he be so two-faced? Second verse, Same as the first as Nancy Grace says.
He was more worried and more afraid of going to jail than.........Killing somebody? Killing himself, Hurting innocent families, Hurting his entire family? He is some tool! Very into only himself, for himself and himself is all that matters. Now he will show he did 1 free concert for every 4 he is paid for to show the courts he is a good guy and is paying for his little infractions, how excellent for him! He should be helping out at a Morgue or better yet, go to each and every funeral for a person who died because of a drunk driver. Go and watch how a cosmetician has to clean up a body prior to viewing so as not to shock their poor families. How do you apologize to a family for killing a small child who was playing, a young family who is just began their life together, an old man who just wanted to get across the street to shop for his dinner that night? David Cassidy is a joke. He did this to get out serving jail time.
Sue knew DC for years. She burned her bridges as well and needs the Cassidy name. Plain old Sue Shifrin couldn't make it. I don't even know if Beau is really a blood Cassidy. Why did David so readily accept Beau when he tried to deny Katie.
No, Sue doesn't need the name at all. She is very secure in her profession and is traveling all over the world to sponsor others for the sales and growth. She is actually very world wide, he music comes a close second as she still has things she is doing in the recording studios as evidenced if you knew her. On sound true words from somebody who was right there on the action, she did go back to the UK when wife 2 came home for an emergency, it all was around the same time of the paternity accusation, but not the birth nor lawsuit, for a long time and in some cases, she was tagged as his wife in a lot of publications as they had the same hair color. Somebody even mucked up date stamp of when wife 2 and him were together- actually 1981 until 1988. I have no idea if his son is his or not, nor do I care. It is bad enough to fathom he might not have been Jack's! He looks more like his mom, always did and his size, it is the size that gives it away, plus, the family doesn't really accept him. Don't dare say his teeth looked like Jacks either. Jack had caps all over the front and he does now too-all capped. He didn't deny Katie-Well actually he did, didn't he! and when he needed her, he tried to bask in her glory, right down to making a show based on her. There is something not right there. I say bravo to her mom for taking care of her and for a dad who was there for her. All the money this one made back in the day and he only paid 2 or 3 hundred a month? Yea, looks like he really cared, didn't he? jmo.
I think he had beautiful teeth. no caps needed. a person can take after a grandparent or even a great grand parent looking more like them than their parents.
Disagree. She did use the Cassidy name otherwise she would still be climbing the ladder of success with her product. I think she did use a lot of his fans and will continue to do so, but that is just good business.
I wish him well, but I don't think he was very sincere at all. He was only doing this for himself, agreed, to get out of jail and out of trouble. How would it look to see him in jail for even 7 hours? He was afraid of the Blood and the Cripes? He wasn't in their hood and nobody singled him out and said 'look, we have Cassidy here'! Chances are nobody knew who he was except drunk
Anyone and I do mean Anyone who heads up a chartable foundation is in fact getting a huge cut of the proceeds. Up to 80% administration fees to each of the names listed and tax breaks you wouldn't believe, so he was in this business too-it is how the rich stay rich. This product she pushes is not a miracle cure all, just another cosmetic that is made someplace other that the good old US of A. so if you get into trouble with it, I donot think they really stand behind their products and you cannot sue them as it would cost way too much across the countries.
I know he did physically abuse wife number two a great deal. I'd leave her alone though. Met her once, very quiet and nice woman, very hard worker. The thing is here his drinking and he gets on this show, trying to be cutesy and oh so sweet and very regretful for his actions-yep, a good actor, give him an Oscar, the toss his head away from retribution. I do not believe he does care about anybody other than himself. All for him, forget everyone else. His fans are blind as bats!
He got his caps because he had to keep up with the times and with his plastic surgeries. He did have great teeth until he got them shaved down and then capped when he was in his late 30's. He also has at least 2 crowns on the left side. I know a childhood friend of his and he too has a mouthful of fake teeth. Hard to be an actor I guess.
You girls need to leave his family alone. This is a page for him and his drinking problem. So far, so good and spot on with a lot of entries, but leave the kids out of it, hu? It really isn't anybody's business who is who's father or mother or anything else. I see why he doesn't get around his fans. This happened back in the 70's as well. I wonder how many of you are throwbacks to that era and are still a thorn in his side because you cannot get to him? Give it a rest already about the extra activities and abuse. Those days are gone, move on to the future!
David's got a wife & a fiancee/girlfriend. It looks as if those days are far from being gone for him. Why blame the fans or anyone else for his reluctance to step into the future?
I'm confused by what you mean in saying that David wasn't accepted by his family. I can remember reading his mom's 16 magazine columns – "My Son, David" – in which she shared stories and photos about him, beginning from babyhood. She said that her family helped care for him and that they visited regularly with his dad's on Long Island. David knew and was loved by both sides.
another little thing that bugs the heck out of me, in his book, he had information on how much he paid on his Encino home each month. He is in la la land when he says it was $600. Back in the 70's, house payments were not that expensive in Beverly Hills let alone Encino, a poor town! He told how his room mate paid 300. a month, that was probably more like the entire house lease payment at that time. Was he ripping off his friend? I have read a lot of these posts and there are slight errors. He did get kicked out of wife 2 and his brother came for him, he did not walk down the road with suitcase in hand. He used to drink like a fish with her too and never told the truth. Baby 1, then baby 2 and he ran and hid in their bedroom, didn't want to face the music, then she helped out wife 1. No no no...these women he runs down are all good women, they have hearts, but he stomped on each and every one of them and used them all to his advantage. Can ask wife 1 about how he drank then too.....oh almost forgot, that is in his movie too, but even she admits there was drugs involved.
From what I heard Sue used to run a charity that was taking a high administration fee and this got replaced with Arbonne with is a pyramid scheme. Those products don't get good reviews. David and Sue had a fake marriage. Sue didn't care what David did for years because until the age if social media a lot of fans didn't know.
DC was in a drunken stupor when he physically hit wife #2. There are record reports of this incident. Sue seems to be nice, kind and determined to be a better person about this than David. Secondly no doubt Beau is David's son. I don't by that is isn't. Too far fetch for me to think any other way. Mr. Cassidy has some great children whom appear to have great heads on their shoulder. Good for them! I just keep thinking about DC's family and children.
This information site for a former teen idol who is a drunk got 500 hits? SMH! That is C R A Z Y!
This needs to be closed down now.
THEN GO AWAY AND DO NOT READ IT!!! who are you to dictate to a public website?
It is a dicussion on the human nature of an individual who people had an interest in at one time and are surprised by alot of things that were not know before. It's like reading a biography and with each page you learn something new.
Not human nature to run down every blessed thing associated with him, especially his beloved children. How DARE you ! Call yourselves his friend, fan, piece of A...Damned Crazy!
I don't understand what you mean. Nobody here is running down his children. If anything, everyone seems genuinely concerned. They're adults now, 27 and 23, but will always be his kids.
It is a dicussion of an individual who people had an interest in at one time and are surprised by alot of things that were not known before. It's like reading a biography and with each page you learn something new.
I don't care if it's one individual or not. I'm relieved that I'm not the only one who was told they were a valued part of his life and a trusted friend only to be stomped on and crushed like a gnat on his life!
'...A discussion of an individual who people HAD an interest in at one time...' Yes, at one time, but not now. You only want to be here to tear him down and apart and to tell the world of things that is of no worldly business to anyone else!
Why don't you all go away if you cannot wish him well and keep moving on? You stay stuck in here believing every thing somebody else's makes mention of and you have no clue if it is true or not. Don't you know by now most celebrities have many lives? What is out there isn't what it truly is.
This poor gentleman has a terrible problem and a heavy road ahead. He is old age now, ready to collect his pension and get ready to choose a health plan through Medicare. Maybe it would be better off if he did hang it up and retire. You never deserved his talent, you never deserved him at all.
Least I can Honestly say I did if fact have him first. I had him very first crack he became Thee Teen Idol. Don't believe me? Too bad, I have picture proof. I was 14 years old for you nosy ones out there and it was the best thing that happened in my young life! Good for me and my side, you can only wish you were in MY shoes. Now what you gonna go and do about it? Steam your iron now? Blow it out your nose? I stand tall and proud. I had him at Hello :D
That was a lifetime ago and I have no interest in what happened in his younger days. Ten years is a long time to be his friend not a one night stand! It's the people he's trampled on along the way that hurts!
Who said I ever stopped seeing him? I just saw him last week matter of fact. So, I guess my 44 years with him means nothing? Dream On ;)
Not dreaming at all. Quite happy for you if that's the case! No need to be defensive I think we are on the same side here so please cut this one some slack!
all I can say he's one of the sweetest nicest guys I've ever known. and good for you library card
I don't mind sharing
So you still have punches on your card for DC-well that proves the point he is not loyal to anyone but himself.
And you think that makes you special? Ha ha, dream on. And welcome to the club!
Next time you better decide on your story from the beginning. First he is a poor gentleman, then a one night stand and then your lover of 44 years? Your in fantasy land. Post the photo or stfu.
So you say you have picture proof? Well stand proud and post it then.
Photo ! Photo! Photo! Photo!!
It's still a man's world and we do what we want with busy body women who we have no more use for.
NOW GET ME MY NEXT CAN OF BUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe for you but you don't speak for the rest of us.
Kora"....I can personally assure you that David and Sue "DID NOT" have a "fake" marriage....it was very much "real"....he has loved her since 1973 when she was touring with "Cliff Richard:" in England....out of all the "women" everyone describes, it was ON:Y Sue who honestly won his heart....they have loved each other "Unconditionally"......mo matter what happens, "She" will be known as the "Love of his Life".....trust me.......
Sue claimed to be infertile and somehow had a m
Sue said she was infertile and Beau was a miracle birth. I don't know why David was accepted Beau was his when he denied Katie. David married Sue a month before Beau was born. The public wedding was later. Sue is all about the money. Sue also never liked David's mother and was behind Evelyn being committed when she didn't have Alzheimer's. It is one scheme after another with Sue. Friends , family and fans have witnessed Sue's wrath.
While it's true that Sue never liked David's mother & was disrespectful towards her from the very beginning, I can also personally assure you that she was emphatically not behind Evelyn's being committed when she didn't have Alzheimer's. That was somebody else unrelated to the family. Sue may be many things, but it's not right to blame her for something she wasn't directly involved with then.
He didn't deny his daughter! He just did not admit to anything to anybody, until he absolutely had to. Pretty much like that so-called 1st dui, 2nd dui, 3rd dui and so forth. Deny, Deny, Lie, Lie, Lie.......Teflon David.
Wow about Sue! She is friendly with the C. and J. family! No idea if she had his mom committed, that is cruel, but mom was in California while they were living everyplace else but there!
I'd like to know what was so wrong with his real mother? He pretty much buried her as being his mother and left the media to keep up with the Step mother routine. She didn't exactly raise him as her own, probably treated him alright though. Why was his mom always left out to pasture? His mom lived in the same area as he did after he moved in with his friend. Why not ever mention her? He always said he loved his mum later on, but then did say in 3 concerts I went to that she was dying and he was overly upset, except those concerts were 2008. I sure cannot see his wife taking charge and just signing her away, she has no rights to do that just being a wife. I thought his mum's granddaughter had the power over her? Yea I think something is up, what step mum writes a book about her step son's private parts anyways? Sick things.
There was nothing wrong with David's mom. She loved him unconditionally & continued to do so all of the days of her life. She was someone who continually placed his welfare over that of her own. Sacrificing only to be cast aside so callously and so cruelly. Anyone would have been blessed to have had her as their own. He once placed her in the difficult position of choosing between her child (him) & his child (Katie). When she made a choice he didn't agree with for his own then selfish purposes, he retaliated by disowning her and referring to her as "dead." She wasn't really at the time, just to him. David broke his mom's heart. Her already fragile health diminished because of that, no doubt. Katie wasn't responsible for overseeing her commitment, care, placement, etc., he was. He was her child and next of kin. That responsibility belonged to him, and him alone. Not something he could easily run from, especially since the court system was involved.
Did you all go to the festivities in Sherman Oaks? In the patio area? Where all the Champagne was flowing? Great All Day and Night Partay..........Hay! :D
No,but I've been to some other doozies!!
Please, do tell and fill us in
What do you mean Cliff Richards? I will have to consult my old date book and my pictures of the past as not one woman travelled with Richards except maybe Ronnie S. and her sister! Not blaming but people who talk shop about music and concerts even in the UK, someone in here will know if it is true or not. The reason why you cannot take anyone's word for anything, not even a sainted former teen idol-ha ha ha.
You got your Richard and Richards mixed up . There is Keith Richards who could never be mistaken for Cliff Richard. Now Cliff Richard put up both David and Meryl over in England. It was the most amazing thing to be going to sleep and listening to them harmonize way past midnight. This was when he was married to Jackie and as hard as it may seem, things taken from his Time Machine were used for the stepping stones for EFX.
Hope all is well and on the road to complete recovery.
Sue Shifrin singing on Cliff's show. She was a songwriter for Cliff.
There is confusion in here about who is who. It was Alan Tarney and his wife that he and his 2nd Mrs. stayed with in England, not Cliff Richard. Lot of goof balls in here. A bad comedy here.
Only he could pick out a place named after a Disney character to use for a wedding party, a character with a long appendage I might add! I understand he even used the owner to throw the party with free everything. Didn't pay his bill. his wife's friend really. She being The Valley Girl. She's a good lady. Wonder if she will write a book? No. 2 is going to do it.
Are you sure about that? HELLO! magazine interviewed & photographed David, Sue, baby Beau and family for a '91 edition. They may have even paid the expenses in exchange.
Sue was born and raised in miami
I AM not thinking this is so true at all. I AM thinking this place holding wedding party was for many of these family members and the other family relatives and friends for long times sake like one big family event party day. Not to be opened up to the public for somebody else to be snoops into it. Maybe he be paying for to have publicity into these magazines. This is new way of movie stars, no gossip, now they make magazines pay for good story lines.
Many womens here you need to behaving like the ladies to be sure of yourselfs, ok? No make yourselfs to be lower like he make onto you in these past olden days when he using you for his toy games like little boy. Not right for him to do this to these women here not good at all. He is not knowing his real mind what to expect he drinking all these times anyway. Not worth to be blow on his horn in these public places, he is not to be worth that to pump himself with his pride. You making to keep yourselfs strong and be always ladys. It be making me very angry to be in here to be speak like this because I am knowing he is not right for himself and nobody else now either. I support onto him for many years for his music for his concerts paying lot of these big monies to get this choice seating on these charts and one times he make like big deal stuck up person acting like huge big boss all over his stage and say many bad vulgar wordings to his good fans, make his fans cry and walking out. Now he is to be paying for it now I am seeing that for sure.
Meryl Tanz said she read about Katie in the paper. When the papers came to the house David said it was a groupie. David is a sociopathic liar. David's brothers also know the truth about Evelyn. Sue and Shirley and her family have bad mouthed each other for years and now they are buddy buddy. Something smells.
You give yourself away with this post. You have a vendetta against his third wife and say similar false things on every and any message board you can. And you dislike Shirley because you're in love with her deceased ex. You do not know the family or any inside truths. You have a psych problem, C.O'C. Seek help.
True, that is what it was pretty much so. He lied about a lot of things to many people all over the place, but he had kept it up with the baby momma since around 1971. I don't think he really knows or has ever known what the truths really is and this is what he has such a hard time with now. He made such a fortress of stories over the years, even his own words are escaping him and he blames others for writing lies about drug usage or over drinking when he himself validated that fact in not one book, but at least 2 books, and others have mentioned him in their books or in interviews as much. No need to has who is sleeping with whom in the family. this is about him and his story telling. He got caught, he now has to face his own musical victories or disasters as his own doing. I'd hate to be his age and keep making up the many stories to get out of a DUI, but he managed to do it 3 different times in 3 different states? That's too much! He might have had even more but buried at the time because back in the olden day, nobody really cared and the cops would drive a drunk person home.
I do not know who you are who is writing these different things here, but very interesting and most I say have to be these truths for sure. People cannot be making up these things and others come in and say it is true. Good. Maybe these things will open his eyes and his mind to make him repent for what he doing to people, to hurting women all these years. He is not Rock and Roll God for women. Honor belonging to Mick Jagger in my mind.
Koa has it right about Meryl, how she know and finding out about babies when her husband is lying to her all over this place. That is a nice woman she is. She would have nothing to lie about at all, I do not think so at all. She never said bad things about him, but she told the truth, big difference there. She had bad life with his fans too, make her life nervous at times, not good for her at all.
All I want to know is why was this particular interview claimed as an Exclusive? What does that exactly mean? Is it not exclusive to have on a former President? To me, it seems this 'Exclusive' means it was done in fact for the sole purpose of getting him out of trouble or easing his court problems, it was planned just for his troubles, not just because he happens to be a somewhat legend. Now he is going to give community service in the form of concerts, that is exactly what he had done the other times, jump started all these community service things like announcement for Alzhiemers Research when he already knows one of the main Dr.'s on this very subject who happens to be his ex's ex.
an "Exclusive" usually means that you are not giving any other interviews on that subject to other news agencies.
How do you know that concerts are going to be the community service?
Giving an interview does not impress or change the mind of a Judge or lawyer and it does not "ease his court problems".and does not change the minds of the participants in a court case. Talking about alcoholism in interviews and speeches could be part of community service, as well as fines and attending classes and programs.
lf any of you or your mother, father, daughter, son brother got 3 DUI or DWI you would do everything in your power to stay out of jail and use every means within your power - especially if you thought that that person or yourself might get killed or injured in prison or might not make it out. Please try not be so judgmental knowing at his age he may not survive prison if he was sent there.
What about the person who is in their own prison, from a drunk driver who ran them down while they were going about their life? They might not make it out either. Bad enough people die every day from a no brain drunk driver or one who is under some influence, but the ones who manage to stay alive, what life could it possibly be to be hooked up to life support or have to go through therapy to learn how to walk and talk again, that is if they did not lose a limb or become immobile? People who drink and drive then take matters into their own hands need to take more responsibility and not run and hide, make up defense stories just for their ego.
When people drink they are not thinking clearly. They don't "make up stories for their ego". They are trying to explain why and what led up to the situation they are in.
The facts are he didn't kill or maiim anyone and maybe he has learned from his mistakes? Maybe this has been a wake-up call for him? when people drink they don't say "lets drive drunk" they have lost their reasoning capabilities and therefore step behind the wheel of the car. Please try to show a little compassion, the same compassion you would wish to be shown to yourself. Have you ever walked a mile in his shoes? have you ever been famous and had your entire life judged and talked about and in the newspaper from BIRTH??? NO, I didnt think so.
Mercy, I hope you have the same compassion if a drunk driver critically injured a family member of yours and you have to make a decision to switch off a life support. I hope it never happens that you are in that situation. It is the same as a lethal weapon drunk and behind a wheel of a car.
Mercy: Right he didn't kill anyone on the hi-way-but he has killed the relationships with his family and children and possibly his career. He now has people in his band saying he is doing good. Just finding pawns. Everyone he has lied to, manipulated and abused in one way or another had their soul abused. To give him a break, really-the guy opened his life as a open book to get pity-
Problem is is that his wake up call has been ringing off the hook for the last 40 years. He has finally decided to pick up and answer it? Oh Plueeze!
Gee....I see things differently I guess. This goes more than just a few DWI's. Drinking ruined his life. Listen to his words. Although I do see a lot of personal innuendoes in the tape, I think he is sorry, I think he was holding back tears because of showing his underbelly to the world. One can only hope and pray he comes through his darkness with a renewed sense of being with that no physical damage.
For those of you who have been so critical, you really do need to stop with being so childish and so mean towards him. His life is his own, he does not belong to you personally, no matter what he perhaps told you in confidence. He is an entertainer and a darn good one. He belongs to all who love him and enjoy him. Stop being so critical and exposing what you think is the truth, it makes for very bad fodder and just wastes everyone's time.
I have read each and every post. I am not a doctor of any type but just on the outside looking in. Many years ago just seeing him on tv made me happy. It was all a fantasy. But it helped me get through some really rough times. 40 + years later he has all these DUI or DWI, and people are dissecting him. I don't blame them. Drinking and driving are bad. I could deal with the drinking and driving and him getting help. Hopefully. I can't deal with the way he abused people, drunk or not. Domestic abuse is bad. NO ONE HAS ANY RIGHT TO TOUCH ANYBODY. I don't want him to drink and drive and kill or mangle someone, but I don't want him to kill someone by beating the hell out of them either. I wish I could be more supportive but supporting him means I support Domestic Abuse. He has lost a fan because of the final straw finding out how he abused people.
I am a fan no longer. Watching the Partridge Family and seeing David helped me years ago too – I grew up in a dysfunctional home and later married a man who was emotionally, verbally, and finally physically abusive – no longer. When you are married to someone that is an alcoholic and abusive then it becomes something you cannot tolerate to have anyone else experience either. So it took a few concerts where he was either drunk or rude that made me realize he was not a very nice person. And then learning things about him that I didn't know – thanks to social media that wasn't there back in the day. And if you remember "Celebrity Apprentice" he came across as weak when placed up again others more famous or were able to hold their own and then had to have Jose Consecos stick up for him and used his daughter to his advantage and it was almost pitiful to watch. Even if you base it on talent – let's face it he can no longer sing well – due to drinking-I don't really know. At a few of the concerts he forgot words to songs – and not just one. As for his diehard fans – you will never change their minds – maybe they need that in their life for whatever reason and that is not for me to judge. This is not meant to be mean or critize – just another opinion.
Did he say on the interview that he would like to beat up someone but he physically couldn't do it, only in his head? Thank You for pointing out the physical abuse Karen. Correct! He does in his own way abuse, doesn't matter at what level, he does inflict pain and suffering on his victims no matter if in concert attendance, in private, married, dating, whatever and it also goes for driving. Wasn't there and incidence also in NYC where he ran into another car and they let him go and ignored the woman because she said she wasn't hurt then saw who it was and became more injured? Fact was he ran into her and left the scene of the accident and nobody went to question him.
What I was getting at was he is a big man beating up women, until he himself gets into a situation that he cannot handle, someone meaner bigger and badder than him then he gets scaredy cat . Did he stop and wonder if the women he beat up were afraid of him? Did they hurt when the blows were delivered? Did he think then who was bigger and badder?
David's past physical & verbals threats have also included men, including one of the owners of the celebrity autograph show some years back. A friend of mine who witnessed the public spectacle firsthand was stunned by it. David's 5' 8" & the other guy an easy 6' 1" but that didn't stop him. So determined to bully & to get his way, which he didn't. That was the same show where David refused to take off his sunglasses, to speak to fans, to sign PF memorabilia, to stay for the contracted period of time (tried to leave twice in the first 50 minutes), claimed to be sick in the bathroom (deputy who accompanied him said didn't happen), etc. That David's been physically abusive to the women in his past isn't at all hard to believe. What kind of "man" does that to a woman, any woman?
I remember the incident about signing Patridge items. I was heading to seeing him in concert in La Mirada and was worried about his mood. There was someone who worked behind the scenes and was his escort and assistant for autographs and greeting fans. I guess he said, "I don't have to do this f>>>>> S****** and I am not going to and stormed off. They had trouble getting him to do this to begin with. The fact remains in this interview, he admits to being a big mouth jerk. Admitting and doing something about behavior are two different things.
He was such a jerk at that celebrity show, but for some reason his way of thinking does make a little sense. He was misinformed about how to set up his space. He brought his own photos and decided he was only going to sell those photos, when the promoters pretty much gave him a nice set of his own photos to help him along. For a person in the business so many years and nobody around him knows how to set up a meet and greet? He did want a high fee and he was behaving very strangely. In contrast, Richard Chamberlain was beyond the sweetest guy there. He does not do very many meet and greets because as said up above, his fans are beyond fanatic. They are a very mean bunch when they get into a group and they do not listen to any reason, to any rules when wanting to meet him. Then here not too long ago, there was a meet and greet and he put out the most bizarre rules-no talking no picture taking, no nothing. What was the point then? He really needs to get off his Diva Train, come back down to earth and be a real person again-he probably has forgotten how.
I’m confused by what you’re trying to say. If David’s sorry about anything, it’s that he’s been caught and exposed. The postings haven’t been “so childish” and “so mean” towards him. People have spoken of and shared their experiences, whether good or bad. David’s an entertainer as you say, but no longer a good one. Not even passable. Let’s face it. He doesn’t enjoy it anymore and it shows. He doesn’t bother rehearsing, remembering the lyrics, just goes through the motions. He doesn’t want the adoration. He makes no apologies for his rudeness, his cursing, his bullying, his drunkenness on stage. David’s life “does not belong to you personally” but does “belong to all who love him and enjoy him”? Read all of the postings before calling them "very bad fodder." Not a waste of anyone's time!
Miami, then what was that he said about his sloe eye over his DWI in florida? he did use a laim excuse and made up a storey and then he made more excuse.
True... now I remember watching that. Guess he was hoping to get off with a warning.
Disagree. His bad throat is because of the years of singing and stage dust. He also took his share of throat injections-steroids to help his voice. The drink does not help this matter granted. I would not be very surprised if he is in fact battling a terrible malady. You do know that the number of musicians contract mesothelioma-cancer of the lungs and throat. Yeats of working around asbestos buildings and studios.
I have not heard David, talk about accountability. Alcoholics think about relieving their pain, to avoid and they don't realize the consequences and how it effects other people. In working my steps, I realized how much pain I caused others by my drinking. It was painful to get to the truth but I needed to be accountable for my actions. I still go back to his family, children and close friends. No excuses for his behavior. It is serious and his dark soul can't recover until he focuses on the truth.
He is a man who always needs to be noticed, no matter what. He had to put out his little book twice, actually 3 times, He does do things to make people talk, all for attention. He is a whiner, he needs to be noticed, he needs to be the one who people talk about. He thinks he is the greatest living rock and roll idol and he is no such thing, he never was anymore than a made believe character that came to life for 3 1/4 years via television. His name came up at a banquet dinner last night and 6 of the people sitting at the table hoisted their glass and took one for him as they laughed. Hear tell the concert the other night wasn't so great, lot of complaints again
To honest: what are you smoking? i was there at the concert with some of my friends. the show was good and entertaining. were you there?
"The concert the other night". Doubt it. The concert was LAST NIGHT at a college and was not filled to capacity at all and it was just another concert; nothing more, nothing less but not up to par at all. People were critical of his performance and he did ask people to be quiet, band was a little off as well, but he could not reach the notes. It was like he gave up, just going through the motions of being there so he doesn't get labeled a "No Show" and probably sued.
'A Web Exclusive' . This never had any intention of being broadcast. I don't know if this was a plead out for his fans to forgive him for his drinking and strange concert behaviors, or used to get through to his soon to be ex wife, which is what it sounds like. He is dreaming! How in the world can anyone take him seriously when he says he has tried reaching out to his wife, then tells her he loves her while in the same breath speaks of his girlfriend. He found out he cannot have his cake and eat it too so he is in panic-Good. Wife and girlfriend-Who does he think he is?
Going by what my friend said, the person assisting David for autographs & greeting fans was his publicist/manager, Jo-Ann Geffen. She stood silently behind him at the table, watching the spectacle unfold, never saying a word. Two of the other celebs, who personally knew him, offered to help, only to be treated just as badly. One of them came back to his table shaking his head. Just couldn't believe it. The other was shocked. They were embarrassed themselves. Nice guys, too, who treated the fans with kindness, generosity, appreciation, respect. My friend had been a fan since he was a kid. No more.

Speaking of the celebrity show in 2009? Disaster with a capital D. He was the talk of the whole show, bad enough the new owners of the show were still making their transition. People; fans came as far away as the UK and were treated so bad. The real sad part was just down the road by a few miles was where he used to work and come out of the studio gate, stop and talk with the small group of fans FOR FREE . He behaved very badly back in October 09. They will NEVER ask him back, one of the worst-they say even Robert Blake wasn't that bad at all, he actually gave what his fans wanted and then some-for free which also made the new owners angry. All he is now is a very distant memory --because he just doesn't tell the truth, he cheats, he abuses and I cannot appreciate anybody like that.
One & the same. October 2009. With Robert Blake, his explosive temperament was a given, so no surprise there. Same friend also met him & said he wasn't that bad considering he was "the Robert Blake." Spoke to the fans, signed whatever they had, made an effort to be pleasant. Listened to fans' stories & their memories. He wasn't disrespectful towards anyone & seemed genuinely pleased that so many wanted to meet him. Nobody walked away hurt, disappointed, angry.
We drove all the way from Phoenix, AZ. to go to that celebrity meet and greet. We did not go only for David. It was fun to see so many of his fans waiting and being so patient during the wait period which was long for them too stay in one place, but when the fog horn went off and everybody ran for cover, that was very shocking! He was loud, he acted like someone who needed their medication to calm down. At first we thought it was somebody going off and turning into a hostile situation. The Robert Blake incident was actually much funnier because Mr. Blake could care less about making any money, he was out having a great time for himself. We heard David also stayed at the hotel next door for both nights because he was comped and hit the bar downstairs, to his chagrin, they closed early, then there were complaints about $15.00 hamburgers. We enjoyed those shows for years, but no more. Nothing to do with this guy, but it was a sight to see . Very hard to believe such a little man could stir up so much trouble and be such a loud mouth.
What could be in poorer taste than him trying to convince his estranged wife he still loves her while his girlfriend is sitting right there thinking she captured the former teen idol. What could be in poorer taste than him not telling the truth for years and rooking people into buying his book of make believe, poor taste to beat up his ex and physically injure her for life, poor taste to curse the very fans he says he loves, poor taste to tell lies about his deceased father who was his driving force, otherwise he COULD have been going off to war or found dead from drugs. Poor taste to always not tell the truth about his illness when he goes off on an on stage bender.
These comments are still all the same--we have the true fans who tell the good side of him and then it is obvious the people who hate him and for some reason are tryiing to belittle him..(probably still jealous of all the success he had early in his life)...these people should try to understand that he has an illness–instead they are just saying everything they can to make him look bad.....very poor taste. Whether you want to believe it or not, this man has been a very successful talented singer and actor in his lifetime--very few people in this world will ever be able to say that about their life-something I fee he should be very proud of-I know I am very proud to have known this man and all of his deserved successes....I will forever wish him only good things in Life....ALWAYS.......
He has been pampered all his adult by bodyguards, mgrs and other people who speak for, make excuses for and blur the truth for him. He has never been made to take responsibility for his actions, and thus his so-called Fans For Life also begin to think the wrong he has done is nothing. Even in court his lawyers made sure that he did not have to really pay for his DUI's, his THREE DUI's. He must have some dense fans for them not to be able to comprehend how arrogant he has behaved with regards to his arrests. "I will not go to jail", why because in your mind you think it's still 1971 and you are still a big star who doesn't have to pay consequences for his actions? No wonder his son lost trust in him. Should any of these fans ever come in contact with his wrath and mocking of them at a concert, then they will see the truth of this man's character.
True fans are those willing to accept David for what he once was and what he’s since become. Nobody’s saying anything about hating him, nobody’s jealous of his early rise to fame, nobody yearns to live his life. DUIs and rehabs, anyone? It’s up to David to change his path of self-destruction. He shouldn’t expect others to pick up the pieces and to then sweep them away. By all rights, he should be proud of himself. He WAS a very successful, talented singer, songwriter, actor, entertainer. Another lifetime ago. That was then, this is now. “The Higher They Climb, The Harder They Fall.”
real alcoholic, "He does absurd, tragic things while drinking. He is a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" Serious alcoholic passes a stage: two alternatives: one go to the bitter end or accept spiritual help" pg 23 adn 25 AA book David is the jaywalker they speak about in the AA book. There was nothing of courage in the interview-it was to gain confidence from others for his disease. Hope he doesn't have to die from this disease-again-his poor family and friends.
I am surprised no one has mentioned the lifeboard scam when they were together just a couple of years ago on t_v promoting the fact that they found their dream home their dream life, dream partner, all of the above total lies by him as well as his wife
Ah the Lifeboard... I had one in grade school, and it was free! I had all my dreams and wishes taped to my peechee. David was on it and that wish came true so it must work! Cannot believe grown woman bought into their hype! People are truly lemmings I swear!
Refuse to run down anyone, but I questioned that lifeboard as being just another pyramid type structure to encourage others to join up. How could they have found their own dream partner when they were together since the 70's? .
This is not an illness, you get the illness from the disease. Surely he could not have been drunk while on stage, that's cause for cancellation and then he gets the blackball from all the promoters. Maybe this was why he had to partner up with the other teen idols, so he could work at the same time use it as a good will gesture towards community service. All he had to do was mention that or Alzhiemers. I always thought he was a great guy, but I didn't know him personally. All these things I read, you know, that could pretty much describe a lot of our neighbors, co-workers, people we associate at church and in daily life and I wouldn't speak of any of them so badly as you people spoke of David in such a way. Amazing how so many know EVERYTHING of his private life and more so. I think you people just want to use this place to gossip because you have a imagined problem with him. Get over the fact you cannot have him for yourselves so stop running him down.. We already heard this news no need for the rehash
Nikki, the disease centers in the mind. We drink to feel better than the compulsion kicks in. Alcoholism sends most of us off to gambling, spending, relationships, you name it. I like how you "refuse to run down anyone" but you just did run down those people who have been , emotionally and physically abused by David. My sponsor said to me, don't be in a relationship or make major changes your first year in sobriety. Also that we don't know the difference between a bottle of booze, relationships and a 5 dollar bill. I have been sober for 29 years and that is very true!
I think you are wrong Nikki. I think his problem is because he can't have 1 cigarette an hour, he has to smoke the entire pack in 20 minutes to show off. Just like the drink. He has to drink more than his fair share to show off, he's been doing it for years. Then there was the drug usage. He cannot deny it as others have in fact wrote about his habits and they way he had acted while on it, getting tossed out of the most important places of the time. I think he probably did make such a fool out of himself the rest of his concert schedule took a major hit, he can't be insured either by the promoters or by himself, so that would mean he does have a medical problem. He used to stand on his own and now has to go in with other singers for a show and then he takes over the show? Happened in 2011, happened last year. His big ego got in the way, that along with the fact he was promoting the shows, he put up the money and his name as the draw so he could get work and a cut of the profits. He also had to show the courts he was working a full schedule so he didn't have time to go to jail for DUI this then turned into community service so he gave probably a portion of his proceeds to some organization to look like the boy scout.
I believe each and every one of the women in here and I think they do have every right to proclaim what he has done to them-how he made them feel and what the long term effects were. He only has to worry about taking another drink, he on the other hand ruined women's lives and cheated them out of a full and enjoyable life. Big shame on him!
David HAS BEEN DRUNK on stage many times. Go back & read past concert reviews. Audience members walking out midway, asking for refunds doesn't happen unless there's something terribly wrong. David's sodden tantrums & tirades were reason enough for anyone to leave & never return. If you've never experienced the "real David," you've been lucky. For those of us who have, our stories are much more telling. No speaking badly, no gossiping, no imagined problems. No rose-colored glasses.
We can speak freely, 1st amendment rights and all that. I never used witchcraft and I too got him as well and I can profess that he was not the greatest either, have had better.. It is called being very determined! Some of us got it, some of us just keep dreaming :D.
Someone else here pegged it point on, he used this show for his own script. Maybe it was to look real bad, for the pity angle, maybe it was to win back Sue's heart, but can't see that, maybe he wants to go out with a tail tucked between his legs-Who Knows and Who Really Cares? He has done so much wrong to so many people, least of all the messing with women's emotions. There are many reasons why his tenants did not pay the full lease on the house, many things wrong with it, they kept their rental money into an account until the problems were fixed which they were not, so it was a wash in favor of 'HIM' because they did it dirty. Then he messed on his own lease agreement, he figured he did not have to pay and then blamed it on his accountants-He IS his own accountant. Let us see what happens on Saturday, there will be look outs so he cannot run and hide his drink under his top hat. He really is not worth anymore time or ink. He is a bad person.
Not at all surprising to learn that David's been a "landlord from hell." Self-loathing's gotten him this far. No respect for himself or anyone else, let alone his tenants. Good for them in not paying the rent & keeping the monies set aside. Why pay for something you're not getting?
The payments stopped because they did not know they also had to pay his HOA dues and then extra for the private dock, the fees there. Then when they did stop payments until certain things were fixed; plumbing in pool area, gutter repair, cracks in the walls due to shifting, this in turn caused him to default on his condo payments-iow, he was trying to use the house money as condo payment and he kicked a fuss over paying the HOA dues there as he said he was never there and didn't want certain services. This was in the realtor section in Broward.
He really wasn't all that great was he? Wonder if the tenants will write a tell all too?
What does any of this have to do with his drinking problem? He has an obvious disease that has been brewing for many years. I think because of the publicity he really cant secure any more concerts. Between all the bad reviews in the past and now this, he really is bad news in the entertainment realm. This is too bad. I used to get a bang out of him, but that was when everyone one of us was so young. I do not care what he does, but he should know better and not be out causing potential harm or death to innocent people. Don't care about his problem, he should just go do whatever he needs to do without having to use national fanfare and call more attention to himself yet again. Must be a hard pill to swallow to have to pay to get on a web interview. Joke of jokes
FGS! OMG! TMI! LMAO! What happened to my secret crush? I understand what makes him drink. Look at some of these entries here! I thought I was in the wrong place. For all who come in; there is something for everybody and that is downright wicked! This went from a 1 hr. spot for telly and turns into his whole life story and just the right amount of rebuttals to make it sound like a nighttime soap opera! So sorry to see he is not looking very well, hopefully he can get his rest and stop drinking. He needs to start with himself 1st and forget about everything else! He rocked my boat and turned it over in 1971-The Best shag haircut to beat all! He is a happy memory, wish him nothing but good luck and better health.
David's an alcoholic, that's why he drinks. Not because of anything said here.
Thank You, Brenda (fromTaos)........"Fan For Life"....
It is a sad turn of events when he loses pretty much everything and now has to live on the kindness of strangers. He does not even own a home anymore, you realize this, right?. How darn upsetting is this? For a man who worked more or less steadily for over 40 years has been losing his homes and goodness knows what else; friends deaths. I cannot see him going on a bender on these things because he said himself he's been at it since 2002-More like 1972, but who's really counting. What did he do to himself to get into this sorry predicament? He should be resting on his successes and not going on nation wide TV allowing people to know what he has done, what he looks like and how sorry he is, but he will proclaim he will go and get better – I sure hope so because he has really been singing that old song for so long now nobody is paying attention.
He used to be our neighbor back in the 80's and to hear the arguments between he and his wife and his family was always reason for calling the local pd. He'd be in town, at the winery, trying or testing each wine until he was feeling no pain, driving down the road like he owned it. He also did let everyone in town know who he was like some big land baron, but again all in his mind because he owned nothing except maybe his car. Don't get me wrong, I thought he was one hot babe back in the 70's, but now, there is no excuse for him to be on TV like some national cry for not even help, more like a cry for 'Look at me' . If he has been messing up for these last so many years, he needs to just leave everything at the door, walk away and start over doing something else, maybe even retire. He can live nice on his checks.
Does it make "you" feel better, "C. Martin" to tell all David's private business since you were once his "neighbor".....this blog was SUPPOSED to be about David's alcolalism-period....instead it has become all about telling tales, not even related to his main problem--trying to get sober. The majority of these entries have been absolutely disgusting......so glad to know that most of you are SO PERFECT......
He sets this up. What old fans are commenting here is nothing compared to the behavior he has had with fans behind the doors. That have their own voice.
