It hasn’t been the greatest year for country singer Mindy McCready. Things started out poorly enough when it was revealed that she’d had an affair with Roger Clemens for ten years, and that the relationship started out when she was 15 years old. Even though Clemens has denied the story ever since, Mindy’s mother said there was a relationship but it was strictly platonic. That story was quickly followed by a former roommate of Mindy’s saying that she was 17 years old before sleeping with Roger. It’s at this point that I’d just like to point out that I’ve never had sex with Roger Clemens, at any age.
Of course, all that is just the tip of the iceberg for McCready this year. Glancing over the DUI she was found not guilty of back in 2007, there was also the events of last week that saw Mindy charged with identity theft and other crimes in Arizona. Oh, and there was that apparent suicide attempt on a drug overdose back in the summer that caused her to spend some time in a rehab facility in Texas. Well, you know the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again?” Mindy takes that to heart.
