Love Means Never Having To Tweet “R.I.P.!”

January 5th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson was reported dead at age 30 yesterday, a news story that gained traction because the socialite had recently captured headlines, as the affianced to Tila Tequila and one-third of a love triangle with Courtenay Semel.

Casey Johnson and Tila Tequila

As soon as the news broke, readers realized quickly that Johnson’s death–which must have come as a painful shock to her family (father is NY Jets owner Woody Johnson) and lifelong friends–was overshadowed in the headlines by her fledgling ties to Tequila.

Not to miss an opportunity to think publicly, Tequila (who was reportedly mid-fight and out of contact with Johnson at the time of her death), took to Twitter to communicate her grave concern as the news filtered through:

Applause to Tila for even entertaining, for one hour, the notion of going offline in dealing with such a tragic event.

However, while we don’t doubt that Tequila–whose life and mind seem so increasingly confusing, sad and fucked that we’re almost unable to talk about her anymore–has suffered a deep loss…sometimes, “Omg” and exclamation points don’t convey exactly how deep.

    Well, not surprised. I wouldn’t expect more from such celebrities.

    Not to be the cranky old guy here, but this kind of thing nauseates me. This is what the country is becoming, a bunch of people who can only focus thoughts into 30 word max entries. I’ll even give the train-wreck the benefit of the the doubt and say they “may” have truly been in love, and if that’s the case, then it makes it even worse. If my wife died, I’d be a mess, and wouldn’t be in contact with the public for a long-ass time.

    Truly heart breaking about Ms. Johnson, and I feel for her family, but Tila can leap into a volcano for all I care…and THAT would be something I’d “tweet” about.

    @ cranky old aptkane, couldn’t agree with you more. it’s frightening, isn’t it? a pandemic of sorts:

  4. aptkane says:

    Yes Diana, a pandemic is just about the perfect way to explain it. Hey, while we’re at it, maybe goodbyes should also not include short-script…ugh, I’m all cranky again….where’s my cane?

    no abbreviations… no acronyms… no SMS…
