Lopez Passes Out Drunk On Casino Floor

Alcohol Addiction Or Just A Bad Decision?

Lopez passes out drunk on casino floor.

Comedian and actor George Lopez was arrested for passing out on the floor of the casino where he performed earlier that evening.  Apparently, he had been drunk and decided to lay down on the floor of the casino to rest, and fell asleep.   Luckily for him he was scheduled to perform again the following evening, so the casino didn’t press charges.   He just spent some time sobering up in the drunk tank.   Does the Saint George star have a drinking problem or was this just a bad decision after “tying one on”, as he says?  I would assume the casino provided him a hotel room, at least!

Michael Bay: From Behind The Camera To The Front. What Causes Social Anxiety?

http://msnvideo.msn.com/?channelindex=6&from=en-us_msnhp&gt1=42010#/video/7bd602eb-42cc-4e59-9b54-401d4c27164b

The Expert answers:
Cali Says:  “When you go from behind the camera to the front, it changes your perspective and your comfort level.  It is why coaches are great at coaching and not playing.  Directors are good at giving orders and creating the product, not being onstage in the product.  If you look at the video of Michael Bay above, in the beginning you can see he is nervous on that stage, in front of the camera.  His aids probably told him to just read the words and you will be fine.  Then the words, his safety net, were gone.  Fight or flight kicked in and he fled.  At The Addictions Coach and The Addictions Academy, we specialize in stress and anxiety. We can use behavioral modification techniques to assist in these events and others.”
