Okay, please tell me I’m not the only one still rattled by the whole Zac-Efron-Goes-To-Rehab-For-Hillbilly-Heroin thing. If you replaced “Zac Efron” with “Miley Cyrus” or “Justin Bieber” or “Betty White“, I’d have barely raised an eyebrow. I suppose it just demonstrates how anyone can be an addict, even super adorable teen stars who grow into surprisingly sexy young men.
Apparently Zac completed his rehab stint months ago and was able to keep it hush-hush until one of his fake friends was paid enough money to spill the beans to a tabloid or two. You know, the usual. Realizing that his fans were worried about his welfare, Zac posted an Instagram selfie while on a trip to Peru with his old man, and I must say he’s looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. But I’m still concerned even though he posted this message:
“Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my Dad and wanted to thank you all for all your support these past few weeks…means the world to me. Love you guys! – Z.”
Not that I think Zac owes us a detailed explanation, because it really isn’t any of our business. If he wanted us to know about it, he would have released a statement at the time he entered rehab. But he’s just so cute and seemingly squeaky-clean, I think I need more assurance that he’s dedicated to health and sobriety. Like if he could email me personally, or text me or something, I’d feel so much better about this whole thing. I’ll be waiting, Zac!
