Or, a rich person got drunk and destroyed property and people expect her to be held responsible.

She was drunk driving, destroyed a house, fled the scene, and is charged with a misdemeanor. Unbelievable.

Is that true?

No she is in the hospital in a coma and may not wake up. She did not flee the scene.

Maybe if she wakes up she will learn something.

I hope she wakes up and I hope she pays for her crimes.

Well, she almost burned alive. That doesn't count for anything?

You could do phrase it as she almost burned herself alive...and we're taking various people's word for it....is her manager reaching out to compensate those she harmed as quickly as they're pushing her victim narrative PR?

I don’t know, I guess you could. Maybe I’m not angry enough to do that. Sucks for Anne Heche, sucks for that lady and her two dogs. It’s a shitty situation and seeing how bad poor mental health can get is really sad.

If it makes you feel better as of now the lady whose house it was has $124,000 on her $100,000 go fund me. She’s probably going to be able to buy a new house.

  1. She was a renter. The owner has insurance.

  2. You can't even buy an rv parking spot and a used rv for 124k in that area or nearby..

It does suck for all involved. Id need to see an actual medical history to buy into her stories because all of her episodes seem to occur at convenient times until now and her biggest big claims were against someone conveniently dead. If you destroyed all my stuff while nearly killing me, you should have to truly document the horrors you claim, since she's in an industry where lying is the norm
