Well, color me surprised. Â Chris Brown is actually choosing to extend his 90-day rehab stay for anger management, which is probablyÂ the most sound decision he’s made in a long time. Â Or ever. Â Maybe all of those years of domestic abuse, morning show raging, car vandalism, and overall Tom Dick-ery are coming to an end, and a new sense of self-awareness and accountability is dawning? Or maybe he’s just scared of being put in jail. Yeah, probably that. Â But still. Â Seeing “Chris Brown” in the same sentence as a positive piece of news is exciting and unfamiliar territory!
A source told E! News that Brown’s decision to stay in rehab a little longer was “his choice.” Â Which is great, since the initial decision to enter rehab was the court’s choice, and pretty much the only other option for Chris Brown’s future besides a nice, relaxing stay in prison. Â Three months just wasn’t long enough to gain the “focus” and “insight” he needed, especially since he kicked off his rehab stay by attacking a car and smoking weed. Â Maybe four months will do the trick!
I admit I’m more than a little skeptical about Chris Brown changing for the better, but I’m not so cynical that I can’t muster a small, barely audible golf clap for his ability to recognize that he could benefit from further help. Â Baby steps, folks. Â When he comes out of rehab and proves he’s capable of refraining from assault and living in denial, then we can give him a more firm, hearty clap.
