Everyone has that friend who is not very good at handling their liquor. If you do not have that friend, you may be that friend. But either way, all it really means is that after a night of partying a few social media posts may have to be deleted, a few friends may need apologies and a few drunk texts may have to be handled. After that is taken care of, the only real proof of the crazy night is probably a dry mouth and a headache.
Luckily, we are not all celebrities surrounded by paparazzi all the time who take pictures, immortalizing our walks of shame forever.
Alcohol and other drugs impair judgment, amplify emotions and generally make you behave differently than you would otherwise. Our bodies react to drugs and alcohol just like the bodies of celebrities, but one of the main differences is how we find out what we did the night before. For us, we can just ask the friends we were with. Celebrities simply must look at the front covers of tabloids to see their intoxicated blunders. Anyway, these celebrity moms have eternalized some of their poor behaviors for even their grandchildren to see.
15 Lohans - Like Mother, Like Daughter
In 2013, soon after Lindsay Lohan ended her sixth stay in rehab, her mother, Dina Lohan, was arrested for driving under the influence. Dina was pulled over for going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone in Long Island, NY. She was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.2 percent, which is more than double the legal limit.
Dina did manage to get a punny DUI lawyer who made a joke that Dina had been “Parent Trapped” with the whole world watching her every move. Dina is a mother of four, including Lindsay. In 2016, Lindsay declared that she was done with her mom.
Since then, Dina Lohan is likely to lose Lindsay’s childhood home after taking out a $1.3 million loan on the property. Lindsay did not bail her mom out this time, and the home was foreclosed on.
14 Khloe K - Not A Good Mugshot
Khloe Kardashian will soon join her older sisters in motherhood, but will be haunted by her 2007 mugshot forever. Both Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian keep a framed copy of the mugshot on display in their homes.
In March 2007, Kardashian was arrested for driving under the influence. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but left after serving only 3 hours. Fortunately for her, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has an early-release policy for nonviolent offenders because of overcrowding.
After being released from jail, she was still on probation for three years. But, after failing to enroll in an alcohol education class, she was sentenced to another 30 days in jail. Since then, Kardashian has turned her life around. Still very much a Kardashian, she prides herself on her look and her new “revenge body.”
13 Nicole Richie - Party Girl Past
Now a mother of two, Nicole Richie had quite the reputation for being a partier back in the day, with a whole slew of mugshots. For instance, in Malibu in 2003, Richie was arrested for driving with a suspended license with heroin in her possession. In 2006, two years before her first child was born, Richie was arrested for driving the wrong way on the highway in a 2005 Mercedes SUV.
When she finally stopped in the carpool lane, Richie was discovered to be driving under the influence and booked in Glendale. Her bail was posted for $15,000, and she served 82 minutes of her four-day sentence. Luckily for Richie, her boyfriend and lawyer Joel Madden decided to stick around. The couple was married in 2010. Madden is also the father of her children.
12 Heather Locklear - Melrose Mess
Heather Locklear, made famous by her role in the original Melrose Place, has one daughter. It looks like she has not been that great of an influence. In 2008, Locklear was arrested under the suspicion of driving under the influence in Santa Barbara, California. A witness spotted Locklear driving crazily when leaving a parking lot, but then saw her again on the highway, getting out of her car.
The witness called 911, and when the police arrived, Locklear was in her car that was blocking some of the roadway. Locklear was taken into custody and it was suspected that she was under the influence of prescription drugs. Now, it is rumored that Locklear has gotten into trouble for beating up her boyfriend and getting into a car accident in California. In and out of rehab, we hope her daughter does better.
11 Farrah Abraham - "There’s Only So Much To Do In Nebraska"
In 2013, Farrah Abraham, made famous by “Teen Mom,” was busted for driving under the influence in Omaha, Nebraska. Abraham was making a wide turn and almost hit a police car. Luckily, her daughter was not in the car to see her blow twice the legal limit in the breathalyzer. After this arrest, she was put on a six-month probation and ordered to complete an alcohol education course.
Though she completed the course, the director of the program noted that she does have an alcohol abuse problem. Since then, she has done a 10-day stint in rehab and been spotted partying and drinking all over the place. In 2016, this mom turned porn star was featured drunk in a Snapchat video with her seven-year-old daughter present. Looks like some people never change.
10 Christina Ricci - How Not To Handle The Pressure
Christina Ricci got her start in the 1990s with Mermaids and The Addams Family. Life must have been hard as a child actor, because she is hitting the bottle now. Ricci was spotted nearly completely passed out at an after-party in 2010. A whole slew of men carried Ricci out of the Parisian party. Of course, Lindsay Lohan was also partying with her that night.
After the pictures of her hit the tabloids, Ricci decided she needed to make a change. Christina Ricci completely gave up drinking. In an interview, she basically said she did her early twenties drinking, but drinking long term would not have been good for her life. In 2014, she had a son named Freddie and now when she goes out, she sticks to Diet Coke and dancing.
9 Britney - Don’t Give Her More
Poor Britney Spears will never be able to get past 2007. She was great in the 1990s and early 2000s, but something cracked for this mother of two in 2007. She had just gotten divorced from Kevin Federline, went to drug rehab for one day, lost custody of her children and even shaved her head. But by the end of the year, she had released her Blackout album (suitably named) and was set to perform her song “Gimme More” at the MTV awards.
Sources say that Spears was anxious and started slamming tequila shots to calm her nerves before the performance. This resulted in her looking confused in her underwear as she lip-synced the song. Since then, Spears has toned it down, accounting motherhood and her boys as the reason.
8 Jamie Pressly - No More Mommy Mayhem
In 2011, model and actress Jaime Pressly was arrested for driving under the influence when she was nearly three times the legal alcohol limit. This was just days after her separation from her former husband Simran Singh.
Needless to say, she had a rough week. Pressly avoided jail time after pleading no contest to the charges, but was sentenced to three years of informal probation, attend a six-month alcohol education class and have a breathalyzer installed in the ignition of her car.
Jaime regretted the incident, because she feels it did not represent who she is. Luckily for this mother of three, she found love again and her career has not suffered too badly. In October 2017, she gave birth to her twins Leo and Lennon and the family is doing well.
7 Reese Witherspoon - Oscar For The Role Of A Drunk Wife
In 2013, actress Reese Witherspoon was pulled over with her husband James Toth in Georgia after they were weaving in and out of the lane. While her husband was charged with drunk driving, she was charged with disorderly conduct after accusing the officer of not being a real officer and proceeding to sass him.
Reese was cuffed and asked the officer if he knew her name. The couple was arrested and taken to Atlanta city jail, where they were bailed out the following morning.
The Sweet Home Alabama star faced community service and a small fine. Of the incident, Witherspoon has said that she is completely embarrassed by her behavior and apologized profusely for how she treated the officer. She even issued a public apology. Hopefully, Witherspoon’s doppelganger daughter and her sons learn from their mother’s mistakes.
6 Bella Hadid - Mommy Had Her Face Up To The Consequences
Bella Hadid is a model made famous by Instagram and the daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid. In 2014, when Bella was 17 years old, she was arrested near Los Angeles for drinking and driving. Yolanda was vacationing in Spain at the time, and was very surprised to get a phone call from her husband. She was so disappointed in her daughter and very shocked.
Bella’s license was suspended for a year and she faced a six-month probation. The family also took Bella’s phone away, made her pay for her own lawyer and sold her car. Because Yolanda lost her own father in a car accident, she took Bella’s charges very seriously. Since the arrest, Bella Hadid has cleaned up her act and has become a very successful model.
5 Tracey Gold - "Growing Pains"? More Like Felony Pains
Former Growing Pains actress Tracey Gold was arrested in 2004 for a terrible drunk driving incident. Gold was driving her 2001 GMC Yukon with her husband and three sons. She lost control of the wheel and rolled her SUV.
While no one was severely injured, her eldest son broke his clavicle and cut his head. After taking a sobriety test and being found almost two times over the legal limit, Gold was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing bodily injury, driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit causing injury and for child endangerment.
Tracey spent five hours behind bars and was released on a $50,000 bail. Though normally these charges would yield five years in prison, Gold got off with three years of probation. Gold blames her husband and herself.
4 Kim Delaney - Oh, The Irony
Emmy winner Kim Delaney is a mother of one known for her role as Detective Diane Russell on the TV series NYPD Blue. In 2002, she was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Malibu, California. Though in her role on the show she upholds the law, she was not upholding the law in real life. Delaney drove all the way to her house and refused to take a blood alcohol test.
So, she was taken to the Malibu sheriff’s station and booked. Delaney did not learn her lesson however. She has been treated for alcohol abuse multiple times. At an event in 2011, Delaney was supposed to deliver a speech to a military audience, but was so drunk that she was slurring her words, doing weird things with her hands and lying on stage.
3 Eve - Her Mind Was blown
Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper, known by her stage name Eve, is a rapper and actress made famous by many of her early 2000s hits and collaborations. She is the stepmother to four children. In 2007, Eve was arrested for drunk driving in Hollywood after crashing her Maserati into a cement divider. She had two other passengers in the car, but no one was injured. She also had no proof of insurance.
Her bail was posted for $30,000 and was paid by her manager. Eve avoided jail time, but had to wear an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet for 45 days, had to have 36 months of probation and had to pay a fee of $1,400. On top of that, she was required to attend 10 AA meetings and an alcohol education program.
2 Christina Aguilera - Genie Hitting The Bottle
Christina Aguilera is iconic for her bright red lipstick, bold blonde hair and insane vocals. But there have been times where she could not even perform. In 2015, the mother of two refused to perform at Seth MacFarlane’s Beverly Hills Christmas party because she was way too intoxicated. She was supposed to sing with MacFarlane, but continued to refuse and no amount of begging from MacFarlane would get her to perform.
Other sources say that because of her six-inch heels, she almost fell into a Christmas tree. This was nothing new for Aguilera. In 2011, Aguilera was arrested in Los Angeles for being drunk in public, and that same year she ended up uninvited in Jeremy Renner’s hotel bed. Renner’s parents were there, so that must have been an interesting night. Maybe Aguilera should just stick to being a judge on The Voice.
1 Jessica Simpson - Maybe These Boots Aren’t Made For Walking
Jessica Simpson used to be known for being a lovely, blonde, pop princess, but as she has aged and settled down–becoming a mother of two kids–she has got to let loose every once and a while. And when she lets loose, she is really loose. Many a time, there are pictures of Simpson leaving restaurants or other places being held up by husband Eric Johnson.
Johnson gave Simpson an ultimatum in 2015, after their oldest child started to realize that something was wrong with mommy. Clearly the ultimatum did not stick as Simpson still goes out. She is known now for pulling weird faces at the camera with a dazed look in her eyes and saying things about how shopping is the sport she plays because it has lots of walking and running.
