She said YES to REHAB
Amy Winehouse is in Rehab and we say “Good for you Amy!”
The soul singer reportedly checked in after her emergency trip to the hospital earlier this week. Her reps say that the ER visit was due to the ever popular “exhaustion” but “sources” imply that she was on a drug and drink bender that lead to her having convulsions.
The Mirror is reporting that she has checked into rehab with her family by her side.
Amy, 23, who was rushed to hospital after collapsing on Wednesday, checked into The Priory rehab centre in London yesterday as family members admitted that her relentless drink and drug lifestyle had pushed her to the brink.
Her dad Mitchell and mum Janis, who separated when she was nine, are understood to be with her.

While there is no word if her husband of two months, and inspiration for the heart-breaking “Back to Black” album, Blake Fielder-Civil was there when she checked in, his dad sure has a lot to say about the whole thing.
Mr Fielder, 66, said: “He told me he was very worried about her. He admitted they both drank and did drugs but that came as no surprise. It was bought on by all her excesses. Yes, work is one of them, but there’s the drink and drugs too.
“She’s got to get a grip on herself before it’s too late.”
He said: “Amy is besotted by Blake. She’s much happier when he’s there and he wants to help her. Blake’s a good influence on her. But Amy is a very, very strong personality and I just wonder how much influence he can exert over her.”
We wish Amy and her family well at this time. Get it together girl!
