The title of the thread is what is triggering all of the hits. Since this is a rumour in a gossip mag may I suggest that the thread be re named Rumors about....When I googled Camilla and alcholic no matches . When I googled Camilla and rehab I got the royal forum thread, the Globe, and some articles about her changing image. AND on google it comes up as a statement not a question.

Excellent point, sthreats.

A possible change in the topics name, perhaps? We afterall don't wish to fuel this nonsense...

The globe is such a joke magazine here in the US. It's total nonsense. Honestly, that magazine is considered fiction and eveyone laughs at it. I wouldn't even call it a tabloid magazine. It's an insult to other tabloids.

Too true. Yep, you can see alcoholism in the face overtime, and it doesn't take so many years as we have been seeing Camilla. I see celebrities often whom I suspect have terrible alcoholism. Camilla does look much too good for this to be true. For her age, oh yes, much too good.

But speaking of the yellow press, headlines.... I never even notice them in the grocery stores anymore, because I am a self-checkout girl, but the other day, my mom was telling me about one she saw in the checkout, about Camilla and William "being at war"!

That is true. It would have been obvious long ago.

Good point. I will change the title.

Well I wasn't so much thinking of the red face but the daily duties she'd be performing under the influence. I mean, some alcoholics do. The late Yootha Joyce, a British actress, died in her 50s from liver failure. At the inquest it was revealed that she'd be drinking a bottle of optics gin a day for 5 years, yet she'd turned up to the Granada studios for roughly 7 months a year to film. Whilst heavily under the influence, she sailed through the script and delivered her lines perfectly. It just didn't seem to affect her. So unless Camilla's blessed with a staggeringly robust constitution, we'd surely hear of her slurring her "And what do you do?"s and we'd see a little wobble every now and then?

Don't worry lexi, I changed the titles. Good catch sthreats for noting this page coming up in Google searches.

Believe it or not, others out there do pay attention to what we write here.

See, why doesn't Clarence House haul these monkeys into a libel court? One landmark ruling and it'd solve alot of problems.

That's OK, lexi - it might not be bad for people who Google on Camilla and Rehab to have read some of the comments in this thread about the unreliablilty of the yellow press! Might help give them a reality check on what's worth believing and what isn't.

True enough. Anything to sell a paper, I guess.

In the United States, libel cases aren't easy to prove, especially in the case of public figures. Because of a landmark Supreme Court Case, Times vs. Sullivan, actual malice must be proved before bringing suit.

That would be the exception, not the rule. It was unusual. And that was after the California Supreme Court scaled back the punitive damages while the case was on appeal. What we don't know is whether Carol would have won the case had it ever made it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Yes, I think it would be much harder for Camilla to conceal something like this. With actors of a bygone age where everything about their lives was protected in a way that doesn't exist today, it's a different matter. But Camilla could not hide it. Like you said, she is seen on a busy week every other day, sometimes back to back days, shaking hands and probably sometimes (unintentionally) breathing on people,which if she was an alcoholic, people would not like.
