You know...

I should have been in bed 2 hours ago. I'm exhausted and feel like warmed over crap. I've spent the past 3 days driving 160 miles per day to be there for my dad. I was all ready to go to bed when I saw the news about Orlando's wreck.

Needless to say my heart nearly stopped.

Then I investigated a little deeper and can't say I'm surprised that this accident was caused by him being chased by paparazzi. *sigh* Do they never give up??? he's not the first celebrity that's been put in this place by them and pretty soon, they're going to have to pass laws and enforce them before someone winds up dead.

Now I know everyone has opinions on whether or not he had been drinking or tried to walk away or whatever. But after being in a couple of wrecks myself, I can tell you, you don't think straight in the first few minutes after it happens, so cut him some slack. I'm also betting the people with him told him to make himself scarce to avoid the press. Poor guy is told what to do now 24/7 and is probably just used to being told everything from when to eat and when it's safe to go to the loo. I'm not saying he can't think for himself, but lets face it--he was rattled. I would have been.

The police said no drugs and no alcohol and I say we leave it at that.

At this point, I'm begging everyone to just think the best and cut the guy some slack.

And if you don't agree, please, please don't contradict me here. I've got enough on my mind without feeling like I have to defend someone I shouldn't have to. If that makes any sense. Orlando is a good guy. And I dare anyone to prove otherwise.

Yeah, I'm sticking up for my man and now I'm going to bed.
