I heard that her mother wrote a article a few months back saying that she is bipolar. I never read or seen the article.

If she is really going through this it would be great for her to be a spokeswoman for it. Mental illness is still a taboo with some black people. It is nothing to be ashamed about but so many people hide it and won't seek help. There is nothing wrong with needing help. I know several people who need or needed help. One of them self-medicates with cocaine. She gets clean then has to deal with her real problems and can't handle it then gets back on drugs again. It is a 20 year battle.

They need to leave her the fucc alone. Instead they hound her and humilate her through the media even though they know she has a mental illness. She is not a zoo animal for folks to look at. At this stage in her life, she cannot be a spokesperson for mental illness because she obviously is not properly medicated or has something else going on. I have a good friend who's bipolar and when she is medicated, she is fully functional and smart as a whip. In this clip, she is incoherent, which makes me think that either she has the wrong meds, or something else is going on. In any case, they need to leave her the fucc alone, as mental illness is not something to be ostracized or laughed at.

That woman has not been in front of a camera to be interviewed in a very long time. She seems extremely nervous; or trying miserably to hold pain in.

Poor girl.

Yes they are. They are exploiting her. I remember the ET promo for this interview. It was "Does Lars have a mental illness?" They know she does. They just wanted to show her talking jibberish so they can show the world that she's nutty. As for her choosing the interview, again she is mentally ill. I do agree that her people should have intervened. Maybe she wouldn't listen. But let me put it to you like this: would you purposely set up someone who you know has PTSD or depression and set up a so called interview so that couch potatoes can be entertained watching ET? The press is getting more and more disgusting every day. Nothing is sacred any more. If she ends up killing herself, they'll be acting all concerned and filming the funeral in 3D. SMH

And they never would have put her in front of the camera if it weren't to show the world how messed up she is. Saved by the Bell has been over and done with for a while now. They thought it would be fun to see her nutty on camera. Never mind that she has a mental illness that she can't help. If she had diabetes, folks would leave her alone

No I'm not! I'm telling it like it. And I'm sensitive to issues pertaining to mental illness.Black folks love to dismiss this issue. Do you really think that the interviewer didn't know that she would be incoherent, seeing that she has exhibited that behaviour numerous times before as of late? Did you see the interviewers' face? She made it a point to give her the rope to hang herself. Mental illness is misunderstood, trivialized and laughed at. If she had a physical ailment, they wouldn't feel so free to deride her. They know she's fragile, they just want ratings and they don't care what they do to get it. It's not like she killed someone or did something highly unethical. She's ill. And she's a washed out actress, so for them to put the focus on her at this here moment is highly suspect

so is Southern.  you both can be advocates/aware of something but simply don't agree.

tbh--i would say she was manipulated if she didn't know the topic of the interview.

jolie, your posts are going on longer than the 1 minute video. Your point about the media in general may be valid, but you can't be getting all that from the video in the OP. The malicious intent of this one interview just isn't there. The media may want to be nosey and find out what's going on from the horse's mouth, but that doesn't mean they're "laughing at" her or her condition.

Why were they cleaning the window outside during the interview? That was so distracting. Dead Anyways good luck to her. Can't really tell from that clip whether she has stage fright or if there is really an underlying condition.

The reason I have this stance is that before I ever saw this thread on BHM, I was watching TV and caught an Entertainment Tonight advertisement and the hook was : "Is Lark mentally ill"? That in itself shows a lot about intent. And then I come on here and click on the video and I see this girl struggling to form a coherent sentence and the interviewer looking at her like she's the stupidest thing she ever saw when she KNEW before hand that she was mentally ill, because even BHM has known for a while. So it's not a stretch to think that they don't care about embarassing the mentally ill as long as it brings ratings. I just think it's low of them.

you seem to have a problem w/ them saying Is lark mentally ill?

did you want them to say Lark is mentally ill.
b/c without proof-- and proof is not her mama and screech saying she is.
but yes w/o proof making such a statement is liable to cause problems for them.

she appears to be sick-- and needs to make better decisions or have a team behind her that helps her to make choices.

but if she's not listening to her mom--- who knows who she will listen to.
she is still an adult and has final say in what she does.

I have a problem with them putting her on display like that and exploiting her for ratings, KNOWING that she is mentally ill. You don't see them interviewing folks with diabetes for the sole purpose of "exposing" the diabetic. They are being sleezy in my opinion. Yes she is an adult but not of sound mind at the moment. It's not something that she can help, it's a disease, just like cancer is a disease

they dont know anything.
they think they know... but without proof-- its just them assuming like the rest of us.

she is an adult... and if she wanted an outlet to go on TV/ the media and say-- hey they are lying on me (whether its true or not)... i think she should be given that outlet.

does this interview help her case? obviously not. but if thats what she wants to do.. i dont see why she should be deprived of that.

Riiiiiight. You don't have to be a mental health professional to figure out that she has issues. This is not the first incident of hers that the media picked up on. You really believe that they put her on camera so "she could tell her side of the story"? OK, then. It's your opinion. I just don't believe in fairytales

no where did i say you need to be a medical professional.

but as a media outlet that is trying to save yourself from slander and libel cases.
you need PROOF before you make certain statements.

gossip mags.. and hearsay... and third party opinions do not serve as proof.

But why do they need proof of anything, really? She's a washed up actress who hasn't played in anything in centuries. She's no longer relevant and she isn't promoting anything. I forgot she even existed until the mental health threads about her started popping up. In light of this, wouldn't it be fair to say that she's suddenly on their radar because she's mentally ill? They know what they are doing and they are being very cynical with it.

That was almost as hard to watch as that vid of Anna Nicole taken a few days before she died.  Looking like a clown and obviously stoned drugged out of her mind. Sleepy

I hope Lark gets the help she need. Disapprove

And Screetch need to sit his dirty sanchez'in ass down somewhere. He just nasty for no damn reason. Lark ain't nasty, but if she was, at least she'd have an excuse.

And if you don't already know what that means, don't google it.
