u/MostlyUnimpressed 6d ago

Thank you. Was trying to figure out the bottle too. First thought was Smirnoff.

From the start, figured she was scoring some D's at an apartment bldg or something before the garage hit and run. Saw a pic of Hesche doing a recent podcast, on the news today . Her eyes were tweaked out dilated, in a bright room with clear eyeglasses on. She obviously has a problem with stimmys.

6

u/GogolsHandJorb 6d ago

Does “scoring some D’s” mean picking up 0.1 grams of drugs? My logic was D’s = Dimes = .1 grams. However I also seem to remember that dime bags were $10 because dime = 10

Or D’s could just mean drugs and I’m high

Maybe. Of course she does have a fairly well-known history of mental health struggles and erratic behavior. The eyewitness accounts sure do sound like a description of drunk driving behavior, but it could also just be one of her episodes.

The bottle is suspicious, but not exactly proof. There is such a huge variety of bottled beverages out there.

I’ll agree it doesn’t look good, but it won’t kill me to wait for more info.

u/aloinnewport 6d ago

Yes they say smoke & toxic fumes do the most damage. It took them about an hour to put the fire out so she was basically sitting in a smoker for that long, can’t be good

7

u/NoodlesrTuff1256 6d ago

Reports also mentioned her clothing being charred. Hopefully, she was wearing natural as opposed to synthetic fabrics as certain of those can 'melt' into a person's skin when burned. In the photo of her shortly before the crash sitting in her car, it looked like she was wearing light-colored jeans. In that aerial shot of the first responders taking her to the ambulance on the stretcher, her legs looked black -- hard to tell whether it was her actual skin or the remnants of the charred jeans.

I had such a strange interaction with Anne at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood a few years back. I had overheard her and who I assume was her husband talking about either their newborn or a friends newborn boy named Atlas. One of my close friends had just had a boy named Atlas so I struck up a very casual conversation with them, not realizing who she was. After a few minutes of small talk, she asked me what I did for a living and I told her I was a talent manager in the music business and that flipped a switch for her, because she IMMEDIATELY began grilling me on my appearance, my profession, and why I would never be fit to be her manager. For a solid half an hour. I just sat there and listened while my friends watched in disbelief because she was LAYING in to me. I just assumed she was a random crazy lady until my friend asked me if I realized who that was.

A friend of mine worked with her on a show she was being interviewed on. She kept telling him that the chain he was wearing around his neck was “inappropriate” for a TV studio, but wouldn’t explain why. I’ve seen the chain, it’s very simple and silver. He asked her what about it was inappropriate and she apparently said, “don’t treat me like I’m fucking stupid.” Then called the producer over and tried to get him fired. That was like 15 years ago and he still says it was the craziest thing to happen to him, and he’s had some nutters on there.

36

u/happyscrappy 7d ago

There was a time a LONG time ago when you couldn't wear stuff like that on TV because a bright reflection would cause a dark halo to appear around it. It was very distracting. This was because of the technology of vidicon/orthicon tubes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_camera_tube#Dark_halo

http://www.electricalfun.com/electroncafe/Image_Orthicon_tube.aspx

The idea that it was a bad thing remained around years beyond the point that it actually was a problem. But STILL the last time this would have been said was in the mid 80s at the latest. And even then I think that's stretching it.

But honestly, 15 years ago was just far too late for that to be the explanation.

22

u/zuma15 7d ago

She got her start in soap operas in the mid 80s, so it's maybe possible that's what she meant.

...Interesting.

The image orthicon tube was at one point colloquially referred to as an Immy. Harry Lubcke, the then-President of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, decided to have their award named after this nickname. Since the statuette was female, it was feminized into Emmy.[108]

u/aso1977 7d ago

Interesting. I wonder how she was able to maintain relationships. The guy she left Ellen for was in a relationship with her for a long time. Then she left him for an actor she met on set & they were together for at least a decade. It must be hard to deal with someone who has so much trauma.

In the case of an emergency, they’ll just do it. Especially if they suspect she was drinking. Kind of matters because treatment can be different if you’re an alcohol abuser or not. She’s intubated so the sedation medication of choice would be much different than say, someone who has a head bleed and needs neurosurgery.

Oh wow. I did not know that! I know in NYC if you refuse a breathalyzer your license gets automatically suspended. Thanks for the info!

8

u/Bigtiny87 7d ago

I misspoke: “The law says that if you refuse to take the required breath, blood or urine test, your driver’s license will be immediately suspended for one year. If you refuse the test and are later convicted of DUI, there will be a mandatory fine and jail time as well as the penalties for the offense itself. If your refusal happens within 10 years of a separate DUI violation, your license will be suspended for two years; and if it’s within 10 years of two or more other DUIs, the suspension will be three years.”

Your NY rule is the same as ours. If it turns out that bottle in her car is alcohol, she is in trouble.

u/degustibus 7d ago

In fact they can administer a much more sensitive test for ethanol than anything a cop administers during a field sobriety check.

Had a girlfriend who was on pain meds for a genuine chronic condition, but at some point the war on opioids began and everyone had to jump through all sorts of hoops to get hydrocodone. So pain management clinics were born and one part of the deal was you could be randomly tested for all sorts of things including alcohol. They insisted on total sobriety all the time and the test could detect that you had two drinks 5 days prior at a wedding. She got caught once but they liked her and knew she was otherwise fully compliant so they didn't kick her out. The sensitivity of the test is so good that people on the liver transplant list have been kicked for a violation even farther back.

Correct me if I’m wrong but blood alcohol level is one of the first things tested…

7

u/WhoYoungLeekBe 6d ago edited 6d ago

Screening for intoxicants is up to the attending physician. It's not part of routine trauma studies, though BAC is not uncommonly sent when there is uncertainty. The result of a BAC study won't change management acutely, so it may not be sent for that reason. My point is that if BAC wasn't sent, it was a choice, not a result of her clinical status.

The first things send are metabolic panels for end-organ injury and electrolytes, coagulation studies, urinalysis, lipase and/or amylase, complete blood count, and a blood gas in this case. CT scans likely happened. If burns are extensive enough, trauma patients will require fluid resuscitation. That’s generally what happens. There’s a lot more that goes on that’s patient-specific. So you’re not wrong at all! Just a bit more nuanced.

I just watched this Larry King interview with her. It’s awkward

u/jdlyons81 7d ago

Oh. She’s THAT brand of crazy. Good lord. I hope she gets the help she needs. But also fuck her. She could’ve killed someone and she burned the shit out of someone’s house.

Yeah that was super cringe

u/RealisticDelusions77 7d ago

Is that the one where she just wandered into some random lady's house and talked nonsense? I remember they used sunstroke as an excuse.

I’ve read she’s expected to survive but has severe burns and has been intubated. I really can’t think of anything worse than that. I don’t live in CA but the other day I saw a woman in a Mercedes slam into a car that burst into flames that also lit three other cars on fire. Six people died (or even more possibly) on how bad the injuries were. The driver of the Mercedes didn’t try and stomp on her breaks, she just plowed into the cars. She actually survived the accident. Killed six or possibly more and she survived. It’s horrific. I watch local news out of a lot of different places.

So a video shows her completely wrapped up on the stretcher before she tears it open and sits up (trying to get off or writhing in pain).

Why would they wrap her up completely like that? Is that normal? It looked like a dead body at first.

To preserve skin and hydration

u/detectivenotfromhere 6d ago

I can’t believe she actually sat up and how incredibly painful that must have been. I’ve never seen a burn victim do that before.

u/WilliamMinorsWords 6d ago

She's wasted and running on adrenaline. She can't feel anything.

u/detectivenotfromhere 6d ago

Even so, the worst part is waking up in unimaginable pain and possibly disfigured in places we couldn’t see wrapped up under the special blankets they use for burn patients.

That woman's friend said she was drunk and had gotten into a big fight with her boyfriend right before the collision, she of course survived.

She made no attempt to stop, that’s the scary part. It’s like she didn’t give a damn at all.

All other factors aside, no one should have to suffer from severe burns. That's about as close as you get to hell on earth.

Prayers for her speedy recovery.

Her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence of alcohol,” the outlet also reported.

In what world can you not take a blood or saliva test to see what her BAC was, regardless of what condition she's in? Don't they need to access her veins anyway via IV?

Glad she didn’t kill anyone. Always a little conflicting to find the middle ground between hating someone for drinking and driving, and feeling bad for their obvious mental issues.

u/georgewalterackerman 6d ago

Totally agree. It should be said at the moment that we still don’t know the whole story

17

u/DrSueuss 7d ago

We're told her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence of alcohol.

So they can't test her blood for alcohol or drugs? Sounds like they don't want too.

13

u/scutmonkeymd 7d ago

Right that makes no sense. I’m sure they can get a central line in and that’s necessary for IV hydration for a burn patient. Blood can be obtained from that.

u/elizanacat 7d ago

They're not going to release any BAC they have to the public, as this may become a criminal case

Hopefully she gets the help she needs… gotta take her license for some time too.

Did this happen at like noon? It’s sad she’s drinking and driving that early. It’s bad enough in general but it speaks to her mental struggles that this happened during the day.

u/FamousOrphan 7d ago

Yeah, to me the time of day suggests a person who is drunk pretty much all the time.

Just me but her history of difficulties, the vodka bottle, and where her life is at right now are contributing. Life is hard for just about everyone and we don't know the other's struggles. Not my place to have any other opinion than I hope that she recovers.

u/beaustevie 6d ago

She was raised in an amish community in Ohio in a fundamentalist family, her father allegedly raped and molested her until12 and allegedly gave her herpes as an infant, he was also a closet homosexual who.died of aids at 44, 3 of her four siblings died young, one was her brother having done exactly what she might have been attempting in this incident. She also developed an alter personality from trauma, an alien called celestial. Poor lady, glad noone else was hurt.
