Beware of the baked goods at Paula Abdul's house. That's the lesson Kara DioGuardi learned several years ago after a simple case of the munchies landed her in the hospital.
During a recent appearance on "Lopez Tonight," DioGuardi said she was house-sitting for a vacationing Abdul and decided to have a snack. "The maid at the time found these brownies in the freezer," she recalled. "She took them out, put them in the refrigerator, and I hadn't really eaten much that night... They were these little nuggets, little, you know? I take six, not a lot."
Six hours later, "I was like, 'Hey, what’s going on?'" remembered the host of Bravo's upcoming "Platinum Hit." "I fell out of bed, on the floor and stumbled down stairs... and the ambulance comes, and this guy is like, 'This b— is high as a kite!"'
DioGuardi, who made it clear that the brownies did not belong to Abdul but were left at her home by a friend, added that the incident landed her in bed for three days.
"'I don't even smoke pot. I was hallucinating, I was on an IV. I stumbled out like a junkie... it was bad news," she said. "The maid took one and she was in the hospital—I had six, I almost died."
It was just the kind of incident that would make for great television. And that might explain why the former "American Idol" judge has just landed her very own Bravo reality show, tentatively titled the "KARA" project. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series will give viewers a glimpse inside the music business through the perspective of songwriter-producer DioGuardi.
"People have one perception of DioGuardi, but this series will peek behind the curtain and reveal much more interesting and multifaceted aspects of this incredibly successful, talented artist and business woman," says Bravo VP of development Eli Lehrer.
this b**** is dumb
I had ONE pot brownie at a party once. I was dumb and hungry and very clueless. I I got sick. I did not feel well at all. Maybe it was more than marajuana in the brownies. I can't stand Kara but I why would she offer up a story like that?
I once ate about an ounce when po-po was banging on the door.High for 2 days but I've Trippin? No. Smoking releases about 20% thc. Eating about 80%. If this was her first time I understand the freakout tho. You Tube has a cop calling for an ambulance after he thought he and his wife were dying. You know a cop wouldn't do that w/o beliving it. If she was going for street cred as someone said I think the snitchin on her friend ended that. Good thing it was Paula. On the street snitches end in ditches.
I am allergic to it. So I actually believe this one. However if this was an athlete they would have gone to jail for drug possession. Smh!
everything hs an LD50. lethal dose of pot is impossible to reach. 64 oz smoked in 1hr will kill. but no one can smoke that much that fast without asphixiating. ingestion is almots 8lb which would rupture your stomach b4 the pot could kill u. so sad how pathetic some ppl are. like someone said earlier... it is IMPOSSIBLE to od on pot.
This Chick is annoying and for some reason I just don't trust her. Ghandi, Oprah, Churchill,...I trust...this Dingbat needs to go away.
I wish when I clicked on this thread...it read as so.
DON'T EAT THE BROWNIES AT PAULA DEAN'S!
That southern bell has done it again. Recently, a private party Dean was holding in her home, got alittle.....baked.
Paula was celebrating her million dollar empire with friends and business associates. As the evening wound down. A plate of brownies were passed around.
Hours later guests were found having a good time.
Then something went terribly wrong...someone said.."it sure is a shame we fight so hard to keep this illegal!"
That guest was removed from the property and arrested for various charges.
Dean denies she knows the man or that there was any "party".
If we don't evolve we will destroy each other....let it be!!
This happened to a friend of mine. He had some pot brownies in his freezer one morning his visiting mother in law found them, took them out and warmed them up, topped them with butter and set them on a plate in the kitchen. When my friend came down to get ready for work he saw them and thought "Gee when did she find time to bake these?" He had 2 and went to work! She also ate a couple and hilarity ensued!!!!!
are you kidding me?? "it was bad i couldve died" ya died of over eggageration(sorry if thtas spelt wrong). marijuana was and still is the safest non-man made thing out there. yes its altered and has some THC added to it but acting like you going to die and acting like a junkie??? please there are probably 4th graders who could handle it better than her.
if that had been me, I would have eaten the whole plate then got the maid Pregnant.
What I like to know is her friends no. We could get together & compare notes. Wow I like to smoke the ingredients. Me&MethodMan. I love u Boo
She totally ratted out Paula. Shame on you Kara!! Plus what she says is total BS!! First of all, she would have tasted a difference and to continue eating 6 of them... Give me a break.
whats going on here, who am i, wait..what? SQUIRREL!!
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS THE FRIENDS NO. For future referance. Tell me where I went wrong.LOL
When brownies are strong the taste of weed is noticeable. If they put really did put her in the hospital they would've been crazy strong, and she would've noticed the funky taste after one bite. Total BS.
Learn to swim sam... Yea I care sooo much...weed isn't a drug..a drug is manufactured... My mom died a few years ago from eating a pot brownie...so that was uncalled for! Who are you to tell people what they should put into there bodies any way? I think your just mad cuz your lonely! And if ya wernt so mean maybe someone would share a brownie with you and you could kick back...look at the wonderful ocean.. And say..hey...this isn't so bad... What's all the hub bub about...dang..I feel...relaxed..and...maybe I should put my old beatles records on and just....slide!
Relax bro...weed isn't that bad...let it be...and sorry I upset you...I was kidding! now go make some brownies and chill! Its ok...its the 90's man....get with the times! Geeeeeezy!.

For those of u who say u have an allergic reaction, what I were they? Hallucination is not an allergic reaction folks.dehydration is not an allergic reaction.thinking ur gonna die is not an allergic reaction.she probably woke up and realized she was a republican
Oh, I was just hanging onto them for a friend. They weren't mine! Come On Paula get real!
Back in my addiction days I enjoy the brownies!! However for one not to taste the herb???? I have to question that.
Sounds like the standard excuse we used as children. "It isn't mine, I'm just hanging onto it for a friend." Let's get real Paula!
What,is your problem?Why,make brownies or any other sweets from pot?You,people need help big time.Get,God.that is who you need. JoAnn
Uh oh! Paula doesnt have pot brownies! Only ones u saw @ her house were stuffed with "painkillers". Enough to choke a horse......
She said about the brownies, & I quote: "They were little, you know nuggets. I took six". So Paulas friend made some nugget brownies that included an undisclosed ingredient, possibly some bubonic chronic, but more than likely something stronger. Hence the tiny size of the snack! They were probably meant for a party, & you were probably meant to eat only One!! As we already know, Paula likes her some "substances," as her rambling speeches & strange pronouncements on Idol can testify to. She really should have given Kara the heads up " Eat whatever you want, EXCEPT the brownies!" Anyway, neither of these women are very interesting except for these types of blunders, so keep up the good work!
Hey sam...google "self righteous pr*ck!" who cares what you think. Go stick a garden hose in your exhaust..run it to the car window...get in the car...and breath real deep...trust me.. It is so relaxing! You'll feel right as rain!
haha, obviously you care what I think because it upset you so badly. Go cry to your mom about feeling not so smart, and ill go sit on my patio over looking the pacific. Dont make comments about facts on drug use when they are tottally incorrect, then self righteous pr*cks like myself wont need to belittle you.
i am a every day pot user & i have seen peeps get really sick from smokin pot. it does affect everyone differently. i don't think kara has any credibility other than out for publicity. she is a real poser for sure! hope her 15 min are up! puff puff pass :p
Where does Paula live? I would like to give those a try.
Hey bunch of crock...your right about that..I didn't even think of it.. I'm so ashamed of my brain.
How could she describe other drugs if she has never used them? How do you know your tripping if you never tripped.? How would one know they were high if they were never high?
Kinda like a crazy person doesn't know they are crazy cuz they are crazy....that's just crazy!
I think paula is useless but she is really cute in that "omg what a dimwit" kinda way! KEEP BAKING GIRL!
And KARA DIOGIORNO PIZZA...YOU A SNITCH!
I read through these comments and most of you are morons. One person actually realized that you can have an allergic reaction to pot! Anaphylaxis can occur and can be life threatening. Also pot can cause hallucinations. Use Google, it will take about 2 minutes to research what you think you know.
What a troll of a woman...marijuana has never gotten me high that long. Stupid drama queen, get off the news you retched filth.
This is just stupid....even if that did happen and you were racked up for 3 days...you gonna put your girl on blast?...Got to be other interesting stuff to talk about in your life.
& she dry snitched (on Paula), no bueno!
Speaking from experience, she's lying. This is a publicity stunt 4 her upcoming show 2 draw attention. She described effects of other drugs & associated with grass. She needa a slap & I challenger her 2 a brownie eat off. Waiting?
Is she so desperate to stay in the limelight that she needs to mention this? I am not a celebrity and if I were the one to trip at paula's house or any other, i STILL wouldn't say anything. it's classless! get a life lady!
She is such a phoney I wouldn't believe anything that came out of her mouth! Other than writing some hit songs for other people to sing she is just annoying!
"People have one perception of DioGuard..."
Umm, who the hell is she?
Hallucinations, IVs, Hospitalization? Sounds a bit more like food poisoning, regardless of your opinion on pot brownies.
Paula, can I house sit for you next, you don't got to pay me or nothing. Okay thank you that is very nice of you, why yes I will have a brownie.
Dear Everybody Everywhere,
Don't invite this FAME-\/\/#0RE SNITCH to your party.
I ate a pot brownie once and I died too!
It was a terrible death...I was peaking in tongues and foaming at the mouth. Blood was coming out of my ears...I was thrashing too and fro in spastic spasms! My heart exploded in my chest and green toxic goo oozed from my skin.. So if this chic ate six...then she is a dead zombie.
If ya gonna lie .... Tell a good one! And hey paula ...next time ya need someone to watch your house...holla at me! I won't snitch you out like kara did. Little snitch! I think that's the worse part...she snitched on paula.
That could not have been pot, but whatever it was sounds like some hard core stuff. Acid or shrooms maybe opium. Paula is usually under the influence of something. Now we know its the brownies.
Hey Amewicans, there is no way in HELL to die from ingesting too much cannabis, you would have to either smoke a joint the size of a telephone pole or eat 10 lb of brownies, which neither is possible. Also there has never been a cannabis=death incident ,.........ever!
Sure you might think you are oding, but the truth be told, you cannot OD on cannabis...... there is no known statistics numbers, info or facts that have recorded this....... on the other hand, Alcohol poisoning KILLs 9,000 people a year, yet alcohol is the mains social substance in the fabric of our society, the government doesn't want us to choose a safer substance , so they force amewicans to binge drink......
Currently we incarcerate 700,000 people year for cannabis possession, more than any other country combined for all combined crimes. put that in your pipe and smoke it.~~~~
Nobody said they were pot brownies. Sounds more like they might have had Salvia Divinorum (also a plant extract) in them. Six of those would WHACK you but good!
ummm – you ate some pot brownies and you were in the hospital for 3 days???? I doubt it....
Who else wants to get a $829 iPad2 for $117.37. Or a brand new i7 macbook pro worth $1799.00 for under $200? Forget about retail stores with their jacked up prices. I already sold an HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $78.24. I use SnagBids.com ...Anyone that has studied the legalization of maryjane, will know that marijuana may make you high, but it will not make you intoxicated like alcohol. Also, depending on how often you smoke or consume the weed, your tolerance will be different and you wont be affected the same as someone who might be considered a 'lightweight.' Most consumables are weaker than the smoke but will last much longer.
At lunch time I go to my daddys car. He pulls out my Pet Peter and has me kiss it. Then he pushes my head up and down until the candy cream spews into my mouth. Then lunchtime is over.

@movitar. Take a hike!
More than likely these were baked with Datura.
-Alkaloids contained in foliage and seeds can stand the heat of baking.
-Grows as a weed virtually worldwide.
-Causes you to hallucinate for up to 3-4 days...more like delirium.
-Active chemicals are atropine and scopolomine...highly active CNS agents.
-Check it out on erowid...dangerous but common stuff!
Doubtful it was Datura (jimson weed), the probable side effects are much worse than she described, and can include blindness and chemically induced psychotic breaks. I believe her story personally, I know that eating pot is a much more efficient method of getting every last drop of that precious chemical into your system. Lots of waste smoking it. So someone who is not used to pot might hallucinate on strong brownies and believe they are dying, although in all likelihood would not unless there was an allergy. Although I am inclined to try it myself, I would not wish the experience on someone who did not know what they were getting into.
Six and she almost died? One put the maid in the hospital? Oh c'mon. If it's true, then it wasn't pot. More likely is not true, or we have a couple drama queens here. Cripes.
@ dachdog, They blame God for one of his greatest creations. @ bailoutsos, Tripped on your underwear on the floor, HILARIOUS!!!! :) I think you should have uour own talk show, it will be a "hit"!!! (Still laughing!)
CORRECTION: She REVEALED this on THE HOWARD STERN RADIO SHOW a few weeks back. I expect Lopez not to mention this but not from you CNN. Then again you're still given Sarah Palin more news headlines... Slow news day?
PLEASE... this is SUCH BS... an IV? " I nearly died"... POT can't kill you.. unless those brownies were laced with something more potent than weed, this is nothing but a PR GRAB... I have eaten countless brownies and you know what they did to me?... make me want to watch late night AND SLEEP!!.
ever consider that it might have been chocolate cookie dough and maybe she got food poisening from the raw ingrediants (like maybe uncooked eggs) That may have been the case and would rationaly explain her reaction.
and in hindsite: those pre-made packages of dough that you just break up and put in the oven would look like "little brownies'
Good point. I've been sick from salmonella before and you can trip if it's bad enough. This would also explain the six hour window it took her before she got "high."
Good for Paula.....
Six brownies means she's a pig and would have been ill even if they hadn't been the 'special fx' kind
HA! That's awesome.
Is this lady crazy? I've never seen someone eat a pot brownie and go to the hospital. She needs to stop smoking so much crack.
She is the only instance where I wish pot (if it could) had taken a lethal toll.
'tripping' on pot is not the right word choice. You can get stoned, blazed, red-eyed, high, goofy but not tripping. Tripping is for acid and mushrooms, maybe some xtasy. As for those of you that say you can overdose on marijuana: maybe, if you literally shove too much weed down your throat and suffer from a burst stomach. Unless the THC is activated, simply consuming the plant will do nothing for you.
Anyone that has studied the legalization of maryjane, will know that marijuana may make you high, but it will not make you intoxicated like alcohol. Also, depending on how often you smoke or consume the weed, your tolerance will be different and you wont be affected the same as someone who might be considered a 'lightweight.' Most consumables are weaker than the smoke but will last much longer.
I can understand someone who has no experience with weed freaking out, especially if they were not aware of being given the drug. Usually these types of incidents are reserved for 8th graders and high schoolers, when kids begin experimenting with drugs.
If a high actually lasted as long as three to five days, then I only have one thing to say: how do we get some of paula's brownies?
u get ill from pot?????? gimme a break drama drama drama
theres too many people with comments we need a new plague
You are crazy lady. Pot can't kill you, it must have been laced with PCP and Cocaine and Sleeping Pills, something I wouldn't be surprised to find in Paula's house.
Look, almost everyone is missing the real point over this story. The chick is bragging about doing drugs (whether it was a good experience or not) for the attention !!! She's an attention seeking celebrity seeking out some sort of street cred. I have serious doubts she is accurately reporting her experience. As a former pot smoker, I know she is exaggerating for effect, and as a current drug councilor I condemn her for essentially bragging about her experience. It's a real shame she is glamorizing her experience, and it is a real shame she is also airing out Paula Abduls dirty laundry in the process. It's not hard to believe that Abdul has a California prescription for pot, but it is not something for others to be talking about publicly.
Once, I had 6 brownies that were to die for. All I did was get fat. I am my own reality show.
Of course there are fatal pot overdoses.....People die from too much pot all the time......many times doctors report it as something else too. I mean come on, how is it possible to say that no one ever died from pot, thats just fantasy. Too much of anything can kill you, and sometimes small amounts can kill certain people.
Prove your point beyond empty words...pot does not kill....
whats going on hereerr, who am i....SQUIRREL!!!!!!
This story is late, Kara told this to Wendy Williams on her show about a month ago.
What a fool. Pot can't kill you.
Someone, ANYONE, please tell me where you can buy this pot that makes you hillucinate??? Besides, that skinny you know what has never in her entire life eaten 6 brownies...please........LOL
If these were pot brownies she would feel the effect in 2 hours max. And it wears off in 3-8 hours after it kicks in. Even if brownies were loaded with THC there is no way in hell she would end up in the hospital and layed in bed for 3 days... she just wanted some drama and attention.
Sorry, but it was NOT marijuana Kara....
I dont even know who this chick is and she has gotta be hurtin for some attention to be telling people this! LAME!
Wow, this woman has no class whatsoever! Talk about throwing someone under the bus. If this really happened, she should just keep her mouth shut or atleast keep Paula's name out of it. BS or not, jsut shut up Kara! Hope she does not consider herself a freind of Paula's anymore.
I'd hit it!
Where does it say they were pot brownies?
Give me a break. You people who think hash oil pot brownies can lay you up in bed for three days are nothing short of complete and utter idiots. That's like saying "I chugged a fifth of Jack Daniels, passed out and woke up a week later". It's physically impossible. Anyone who says they've seen it happen is a bald-faced liar. Period.
Man...you know paula can throw down some serious brownies...wow... Imagine eating six of em! I bet she would put pecans..and caramel goo all over the place! Haaaa... I thought this article was going to be about Paula
Dean also....like who the heck is kara and who cares.... Paula abdul...you stoned tiny dancer you!.... Haaaahaaaa!
Someone please stuff a huge c*ck in this woman's mouth so she will shut the hell up.
Will do. Where does she live?
Thanks, Loopay. You da man! Now get to it.
Stupid is as stupid does.
I saw the headline and thought she meant Paula Dean's house. I'll bet she could make some great hash brownies!
i thought this as well.
"...almost died"?!? Wow. You would have been the first, since the Centers for Diseases Control does not have ONE case reported of someone OD'ing on and dying from marijuana.
I thought the article was about Kara who accidently fell over some brownies that Paula Deen left on the floor.
"Why these brownies taste like marijuana, let me eat 5 more and lie about my experience so I can be another gold-digging, fame-slave c•nt!!"
A person can not...I repeat...can not die from marijuana!! Whoever told you that is lying! And I'm sure she was acting like she was gonna die! Another useless idiot!!! Hurry 2012!
Ah, yes, let's glamorize the lifestyle of addiction. It is so interesting to me that these super stars and their ilk have no concept of self responsibility. Don't they realize that some 16 year old kid (or younger perhaps) is watching this garbage thinking COOOOOLLLL PINK was smashed when she wrote Sober. I really really resent this kind of rubbish getting attention. The collective maturity of people continues to concern me. If at age 40 you still think smoking pot is funny, I think you not only need to have your head examined, you need to grow up. The "it wasn't mine" is probably the most used excuse, ask any law enforcement office who's been on drug busts. And driving while drunk but then OOOPS I pulled over? Are we now glamorizing DUI too. This woman should be ashamed of herself. When I became an American citizen 2 years ago, I took an oath. I think this same oath should be administered to anyone who is of sound mind at the age of 18 or so it states roughly that you will abide by the law of the land. Last I checked drinking and driving are against the law of the land as are drugging. And we are laughing about it? What does that say? Either one: we think it is funny or 2. we are too embarrassed to speak up. I'm not sure which is worse.
You are OBVIOUSLY new here.
I don't believe it! I could see if the brownies were left on the counter in the Kitchen, but to take them out the freezer (time), let thaw out in the frig. (time), and them eat six of them? Come on, Paula or the maid told her exactly what they were, and she wanted to eat them to get high! She needs to get off the pretend "good girl" act! If she was really munchie, she could have called for some delivery! Now she's trying to throw Paula to the wolves! I wouldn't let her babysit my trash can!
there is nothing better than eating a fresh steamy tuuurd in the morning. buttt-hole galore!
not cool to warn someone of their tainted munchies.
Just another celebrity taking advantage of the gullible media (ie Donald Trump).1 hash brownie cannot put you in the hospital!!!! Can't wait for this to resurface during the next legalization debate.
Only in the U.S could someone make this crap up and have it reported as news.
What a nitwit.
Almost died? It's hyperbole like that, that makes people think marijuana can kill you. It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to die from marijuana alone, IMPOSSIBLE.
A reality show about the inside life of the music business. This from someone who has never smoked pot. Right, doesn't sound very real to me.
Alice B. Tokas rules! Just can't stop The Munchies!
Why is this person still famous? Why do we care what she says? She was by far the least charismatic judge on two of Idol's weakest seasons. She tried to challenge "bikini girl" and lost so we know she can't really sing either. No talent there, plus this oddball relationship she had with Simon (that hinted, quite blaringly, at an affair) are just two more reasons to question why Diguardia continues to be in the spotlight. The outrageous claims in her book, now this BS about eating pot brownies and going to the hospital? please. go. away.
i ate pot brownies and i was flyinh high like a kite. that shyt hits u hard!
so wait your telling me that you didnt taste the difference of a pot brownie from a regular brownie? come on now dont be stupid. first off you will never die from 6 brownies. here is proof from a study determining the LD50 rating which is the measure of a lethal dose to a human. One estimate of THC's LD50 for humans indicates that about 1,500 pounds (680 kg) of cannabis would have to be smoked within 14 minutes (^ Annas GJ (August 1997). "Reefer madness–the federal response to California's medical-marijuana law". N. Engl. J. Med. 337 (6): 435–9. doi:10.1056/NEJM199708073370621. PMID 9241134.)
did anyone notice paula abdul's arm? wth is wrong with that thing
"The maid took one and she was in the hospital—I had six, I almost died"
This is a complete lie.
To "almost die," those brownies would have had to have about 3 KILOGRAMS of pot in them and be eaten in under an hour. Please show me a one-pound pot brownie. Now show me SIX of them. It is literally IMPOSSIBLE to OD on pot. It has not happened once in recorded medical history. NEVER. Then again, all those painkillers Paula takes after decades of being a dancer...
What a lying, hysterical.
First of all, SIX hours to get high on an empty stomach? No I don’t think so. It should have had an effect within the first hour if you’re running on empty stomach. Secondly, “I was put on an IV and almost died.” Yeah right. I actually make brownies all the time with Cannabis. The worst thing that could happen to you if you ate ANY LARGE amount is you fall asleep. It doesn’t matter if you have never smoked before or not because Cannabis is chemically non toxic. There is no overdose. No one has ever died from Cannabis PERIOD. She was probably drinking alcohol or took some other meds with her brownies!
This woman is SO annoying! It's no surprise she was booted from AI. I don't think ANYbody liked her. She is such a fake.
Should have seen her on "Watch what happens live" on Bravo. She was so annoying. Not a participater. Very self righteous.
Brownie stealing beotch deserved to get sick!
If I'm ever invited to Paula's house, I'm heading straight for her freezer – but I'll stop at one (Kara, you ate six? Did you have the munchies? Oh. Right.)
prove your story with hospital records
and a drug test...i think soemthing else was in those brownies!!!
I agree. If we made Obama reveal is birth certificate, we should make her reveal her hospital records.
I don't see how a pot brownie could actually make a person hallucinate and "just about die"; must have been some good chronic or something.
Never gets old, the self-riteous posture of pot smokers. Everyone here is saying it's impossible to hallucinate on pot or OD on it. I don't care if people want to smoke it but pot MESSES YOU UP and I get so tired of pot smokers acting like it's no more than having one ounce of alcohol. Everyone has a drug of choice. For some it's caffeine, alcohol, harder stuff, pills, whatever. Unless you're into that particular kind of high pot makes you very paranoid and absolutely hallucinate. Doesn't matter if that's from "fear" as one person said – the fear comes from the overwhelming drug effect and the inability to calm it. Wise up, weed people, and get off your 'high' horse. Pot is not fun for everyone.
Name just one case of someone who has died from overconsumption or allergic reaction of cannibus. Thats the difference between pot and alcohol...one caused deaths...the other causes munchies.
You are a moron with no clue...pot is very safe when used properly...it is very effective for relieving a number of symptoms that pills also do...but without the huge list of side effects that traditional medicinee provide....you get off your horse!!
I had three friends, all males–all dead now. each drove their motorcycles and crashed –all were high on pot. Pot can impair thinking and coordination and it IS a hallucinogen, though most pot in America is not strong enough to cause hallucinations with incidental use. This person never said if the brownies were taken from the home and assayed. ONLY by assaying the chemical properties would it be known what was in them. There is a thing called "argot" which is a mycopathogen which can be in cornstarch. It can cause hallucinations, death, manic behavior, palpitations, etc.
What is wrong in this story is not the story per se–it is the irresponsible manner in which this person says WHERE she was –what she consumed and what happened, but has no idea or does not care of the repercussions of this story.
At this point no one, including this woman, appears to know what was in the brownies, for all we know it could have been bad flour or cornstarch–to allude to marijuana or mushrooms or any drugs is irresponsible and to implicate Abdul (who has so much speculation swirling around her as it is) is just plain UGLY.
My 3 friends, each crashed their motorcycles after losing control one died at 14, one at 30 something and one just died last year–he was around 36–there ARE marjiuana related deaths–it is sad the way people defend their bad habit of choice by either bashing other bad habits, or denying that their product causes any damages.
It reminds me of the 1970s and mid 1980s when people who did coke thought it was the perfect recreational drug and even after crack and freebasing was exposed as the nightmares they are, SCIENTISTS were still publishing that the "addiction" to coke was only psychological.
ALMOST DIED!? FROM WEED!!? Yea right!. This is so much Bull
A veteran of many years of cannabis use can tell you eating is different than smoking – much different.
So she's housesitting for Paula – who was housesiting for her. What a buch of BS. I guess since she's not on Idol anymore she needed some attention.
I want some of those brownies!
hey stupid lady you don't trip on brownies made with pot..oviously you never got high
@Sylvan- either you have a terrible dealer or you’ve never had quality potbrownies (or any for that matter). I would look into finding a new dealer, seriously because that’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard.
you dont trip on pot....you trip on acid. geeesh get your drug lingo down!!!
She made Paula look bad, and made up some bs story about pot brownies. After these comments she made, I will not support her show.
Probably not impossible for something like this to occur but it certainly show a lack of common sense on the part of Kara. If I was really hungry and at someone else's home (and the maid was present), the logical thing to do would be to have food delivered.
The real question here is how does she eat 6 brownies and stay so thin!!!!
Anyone who knew Patrick in New Orleans knows that eating enough pot laced stuff can kill you. It did him: 13 cookies.
Chances are it was laced with SOMETHING else, as-well.
Pounds and pounds of pot, it'd take to kill someone.
Dying of pot has no happened, and it's impossible.
Unless you're going to sit down and eat pounds of it?
13 cookies doesn't cut it.
Kara berry berry bad person. K minus for her. / Her a cheese eater. A rat. Her not good friend.
Hey Paula! I do housesitting too!
Hey, I have tripped on my dirty underwear on the floor, can I get on a talk show?
Keep in mind that it was on the Lopez show. Easily the unfunniest person on TV. He must have pictures of someone.
I agree with the producer of the show. It really is SO important that we see the other sides and talents of this woman. I forget why though.
Tripped on brownies? What were they doing on the floor?
I'd like to be the meat in THAT sandwich, giggity-gigiity!
She dropped dime on Paula Abdul. That was not necessary at all. She sounds like a jerk.
No, you dumb broad, you didn't almost die. You're just exaggerating for tv's sake. Pot has never been a direct cause of death. You are a moron. I feel sorry for whoever has to listen to you talk for longer than 5 minutes.
Getting an IV is pretty common when you enter an emergency room, regardless of your condition. It doesn't mean you "almost died". It means that you were either dehydrated when you arrived, they are keeping you from becoming dehydrated, want a way to give you medications without giving you multiple shots, or a combination of those. People who are as stupid as this lady should just keep their mouths shut.
What a bunch of morons. No one has ever died from a marijuana overdose...ever.
Huge batch of something, but I suspect it's BS, and not brownies. Hallucinating? Bull. Hospital? More Bull. Layed up for a couple of days? Bull. Even ingested, the longest it's going to be in your system for is 6 – 8 hours. She be tripped on some shrooms or something. Even balls out on LSD, I've been totally sober in 24 hours. Lies, lies, lies.
It is not only possible to become sick off marijuana, it is common. I am an internist who works only with hospitalized patients and have taken care of marijuana-related illnesses many, many times. Quit criticizing this poor woman for getting sick!
I believe the word, "internist" says it all. There is no such thing as a marijuana related illness. Watch "Super High Me." The guy smokes his way through 30 days of weed and is completely fine and still had a desire to smoke afterwards.
I need some of Paula's stash if it's "tripping" pot. Some people can nearly die just from touching a surface that peanut butter on it so who knows how pot would affect everyone? Especially eaten.
That would be known as an allergic reaction. People can have allergic reactions to pretty much anything, but allergic reactions to pot are very, very rare. It could have been any of the other ingredients in the brownies as well. People can develop allergies at any time. I had been stung by bees dozens of times with no real effect, and then one time my throat swelled shut, body turned red, and I lost my hearing completely(my ears swelled shut). Woke up in the back of an ambulance after a shot of epinephrine.
please make her go away! she is so annoying and destructive to all women. her favorite song 'she wrote drunk' with pink called 'sober' (not funny and not helpful to a new generation trying to be successful) and then gets high on brownies. throw in selling out by stripping into a bikini on tv for money (to build a recording studio at her supposed 'charity')...GO AWAY!!!
plus not one of her songs is good ..and when asked about what she did to contribute to a song she says nothing.
she is not even an artist in any way. GO AWAY monster!!!
Maybe there was some persciption meds in those brownies.
You can't die from a marijuana overdose, this b**ch is and idiot...and she can't hang with the big dogs.
I'm with you Tommy, though I'm sure it's not really you. Anyone who believes this crap is either stupid or, well, stupid.
Dont forget to bring a towel.
"Why these brownies taste like marijuana, let me eat 5 more and lie about my experience so I can be another gold-digging, fame-slave c•nt!!"
Don't be weirded out mdma but I want to snort you.
That is a bunch of BS. Even if it were true, why would she say anything? You don't snitch on friends and as for a three day high, well that's just lucky. Stupid woman.
hahahah....almost died....what a joke. You would have to eat quite literally a few pounds of pot to come anywhere near death. And there is no way she didn't notice the taste. What a drama queen.
Yeah i'm 100% believing the reefer brownies didn't belong to Paula. That's not nonsense at all.
New website coming soon. " All Palin, All Hate, All The Time.com "
It's like The Onion times ten million.
It is not impossible to overdose on anything. Too much of anything, even water, will cause a body to react badly.
Since there are no reportable deaths coming strictly from pot, I highly doubt someone could overdose. Can you have other physical things going on that pot exasperates – yes. But not alone by itself.
your right, people are ODing on water daily, let us all learn from your wise ways oh wise one. I see so many potheads in the emergency rooms having IVs put in them to survive and then crashing like a crack head for days on end after thier hospital visit. Yeah it's an exageration, you caught on.
That is true. But the amount of pot you would have to eat to actually overdose is in the pounds(the exact amount depends on body weight). So unless someone is planning on sitting down and eating 20-30 lbs of brownies then there really isn't much to worry about. Some people do freak out, as she did, as they are not anticipating the intensity of the effects. This doesn't mean that there is actually anything physically wrong with them.
It is absolutely possible to OD on water.
@A. Goodwin – You are making an unsubtantiated claim. Care to cite a source for it?
@A. Goodwin – You are making an unsubstantiated claim. Care to cite a source for it?
It's actually physically impossible to overdose on weed. Look it up. Impossible.
You should have tried to come up with some obscure substance as regards to referencing a curious overdose. That is to say, people overdose on water all the time; it's called drowning.
Overhydration is not drowning and does happen all the time all over the world. Deaths from MDMA are usually attributed to overhydration. Chris is right. Any type of chemical in high amounts can be toxic. Stop trolling and learn this basic principle of chemistry.
Not cool DioGuardi. You dont have to mention whose house you were at.
I would also like to point out that she and the maid did not taste the earthiness of the brownies. I make some strong ones my self and 6 would out you in bed for a couple of days, but almost die from them you would not. thiz b- needs to get a grip.
Who takes food from a friends' freezer anyway? I mean, come on...she knew full well what she was taking. I've had lots of good pot and lots of good pot brownies...never have I been laid up. High – yes. High for the day – yes. High for more than a day...never.
HOW DOES I Marijuana?
It is physiologically and biologically impossible to overdose on marijuana.
People are idiots.
And she said she was hallucinating!! What a freiken lie. The brownies must have had shrooms in them. No way she was hallucinating on pot...no physical way. What a frekin' liar.
I can attest to that.
Well, not impossible but highly improbable. I'm not sure the exact amount, but it's some ungodly (or godly depending on how you look at it) high amount of chronic you'd have to take in. As in smoke two joints before you smoke two joints, then smoke two more, then smoke 1,495,201, 392 more after that.
Eating pot can easily make you hallucinate. Almost no amount of smoking can do it, but even eating small amounts can.
@ beagle: No beagle you cannot hallucinate from eating marijuana. You cannot hallucinate from ingesting marijauna in any form in any amount. it is physically and medically impossible. Don't trust me, ask any physician.
The funniest, or saddest, thing about this thread is how many clueless people think they have all the answers. Look up "humility," people. (Sadly, the people that need to are the ones who won't.)
One of you please post sources for your claims that you CAN'T O.D. on weed and that you CAN'T hallucinate on weed?
@razmataz I don't need to ask a physician, I have experienced it first hand. I have been smoking and or consuming pot for almost 20 years. You can definitely hallucinate from eating it and definitely get violently ill (vomiting, incapacitation, etc.) from eating too much. Anyone who says 6 brownies isn't a lot either isn't making them right or doesn't know where to get good weed.
@sigh what do you expect this is America. These neckbeard geniuses are everywhere. They aren't worth the air you'd expend trying to correct them.
Who said anything about overdosing?
@tcp (no deaths induced by marijuana) An exhaustive search of the literature finds no deaths induced by marijuana. The US Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) records instances of drug mentions in medical examiners' reports, and though marijuana is mentioned, it is usually in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Marijuana alone has not been shown to cause an overdose death. <–drugwarfacts.org
why does God let stupid people become rich and famous?
Well I pretty much have to since I let the Clergy have their way with the little boys....I just try and lay low.
Because God created people of even lesser intelligence who give the "stupid" money and attention, not to mention they will also comment on articles about the "stupid".
Why does everyone blame God. He is not running this system. Duh? Does this earthly system reflect God in anyway. No. It reflects its god...the Devil. God does not make anyone rich materially. He makes rich spiritually. He doesn't bless people who are morally "stupid". But those who stay away from rolling around it the world and trying to be famous.
If Kara was so stupid, she wouldn't have over 20 #1 hits.
Because there is no god.
You God squad church mongers are no better than isamist extremists, thinking everything you do is to please some giant sandal wearing beardo in the sky. Guess what? We've sent rockets to space. God wasn't there.
I think they had more than pot in them! Somebody doesn't like Abdul now, do they?(Some friend?) That is just too damn funny!!!
oh my god STOP TALKING. is it just me, or does every word that comes out of her mouth seem completely fake?
"tripped out" (!) on 6 pot brownies and had to spend THREE days in bed? yeah, right.
That is actually something that can happen. You have to be careful eating foods with pot in them. It can take about 72 hours for it to get out of your system.
I agree.. Really is that that desperate to be famous!! 6 pot brownies and you need an IV?? Come on.. Some people do anything to get on TV...
My friend one ate a pot brownie off my counter (unknowingly) and was laid up for 5 days so it is possible. The comment about "this b.... is high as a kite" I am sure is utter BS
Meanwhile, of course no police involvement, even though Abdul should be in jail. What a pig.
Pot brownies are made with hash oil (or butter), which is quite strong and CAN crash you out for a day or three. Obviously this woman knows nothing about weed, and FEAR is what made her freak out. No such thing as a fatal pot overdose folks, just keep it away from stupid people.
Have to respectfully disagree with you. you don't know how strong the brownies were which can make a HUGE difference. Newbies always assume falsely that edibles are weaker, when in fact they are much stronger. I have been completely unable to stand up, hugging the toilet, off of just 2 brownies. While I agree that the IV probably wasn't necessary, I can easily see how someone who doesn't smoke would call 911 from the effects of 6 brownies (which is quite a lot) and how any responsible emergency responder would give her an IV..... I guess to me the real question for me is who eats 6 normal brownies? How the hell does she have a figure like that when she eats 6 brownies as a snack? and she had the "munchies" sounds like ,maybe she's lying about not smoking weed.
Marijuana allergies are actually not uncommon(google cannabis allergy), it is a plant after all. They're not tracked/reported since MJ isn't legal. I discovered I was allergic at a concert – the guys next to us lit up and my eyelids started swelling up. These days my throat swells and it's pretty scary if I encounter pot smoke (I live in a college town). I would never dare try to eat the stuff – I might go into anaphylactic shock.
So yes, some people can have a very bad reaction.
She never said they were pot laced brownies. There's no telling what was in them!! She just said she never smokes pot... that was a comparison to there being pot int he brownies. So she may have "tripped out' on something else, acid, anything!!!
I don't believe what some folks are posting here. It is physically and medically impossible to OD on marijuana. Don't take my word for it, ask any physician. It does not dehydrate you, no reason for an IV, you will not hallucinate, simply can't happen. Either there was something beside pot in those brownies or this is just a publicity stunt. Take it from some one who has devoted his life to the study of the effects of cannabis on the human mind.
How many Mexican murders is she resposible for?
You cannot "OD" on pot. This bitc.h just wants drama.
@all the people disagreeing- people have adverse effects to drugs all the time, illegal or not. She said she almost died, and maybe she did. Maybe she’s allergic. I know for a fact I am, I was admitted to St. Anthony’s for just over 4 days after smoking only two blunts (awesome trip until I thought I was dying). I like how all the sudden everyone is an expert on here. Let me tell you- JUST BECAUSE it didn’t\hasn’t happened to you, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. I know it’s hard to accept there are other people in the world other than yourself and our biological make-up is different, but it’s true.
First, if you have never smoked it you have ZERO credibility. I smoked for several years. First there was college, where I worked 2 part time jobs, sang in the choir, and graduated with honors. Then there was that time right after college where I held a full time job. Then, while I kept my full time job, I went to grad school at night and earned an MBA (3.9 GPA, top 10% on ETA national exam). All this while smoking pot. I quit when I got married and had kids, but man, I totally ruined my life.
Not pot brownies...obviously.
Total BS. Who has anything in their freezer that a friend "left at your house"? Come on! Also, the maid just out fo the blue decided to move them from the freezer to the fridge? Ridiculous claim at best.
I believe she went to the hospital and had an IV, put there is also probably more to the story she doesn't care to share.
You guys posting here are making silly comments that she's an idiot (which btw I don't fully disagree on that) but yet your comments are idiotic just the same....Everyone's health , everyone's body is different - so that's the first thing I can't stand on threads like this everyone talking authoritatively like there's no way you would get that sick becuase they didn't get that sick. That's ridiculous...the example of that stupidity is hearing a story about how someone eats peanut butter and almost dies because they are allergic to it...and then I say (because I happen to love peanut butter and am NOT allergic to it at all)...."oh come on...being a bit dramatic....really peanut butter almost killed you? Gimme a break"...is that same level of stupidity.
As for the IV thing - don't forgot the medical field is ripe with constant lawsuits...on a daily basis .... especially when an EMT or paramedic doesn't know all the facts or extent of the injury or sickness they HAVE to err on the side of caution and sometimes that leads to what seems to be "a bit much"....but yet if they didn't do it...they could be open to lawsuits.
As for Kara and Paula...don't really care enough about them to see shows they host or interviews about them...
Oh what a load of baloney!
Just eating 6 lil' bite-sized electric brownies is NOT going to lay you up for days.
Heck the buzz doesn't last that long.
She just needs to get naked!
What do you expect? The truth? She's lawyer offspring... That defines it all. So, you know the types we're dealing with here.
Who needs a house sitter, when they already have a maid at the house?? Shut up Kara!
All of you saying things like "this could happen" and "i once had a friend who was in bed for 5 days because of one brownie," etc. are all so full of crap my head hurts. The subject of this article and all of you are FULL OF IT. Anyone who has had some pot brownies knows that, while they can be powerful, will not last more than one night and will CERTAINLY NOT require an IV drip. "I almost died," yeah RIGHT. Impossible.
I once had 2 brownies and was high as a derrigable ballon for 69 days. I was trippen so bad I woke up hanging upside down from my ceiling fan 5 days in a row. It was crazy, but I just enjoyed the ride and never went to a stupid hospital, why wast the high?
You don't hallucinate on "weed". And...you didn't "almost die" from pot brownies, unless you're allergic to chocolate. She may wanna get that checked.
TO ALL CLUELESS BRAINWASHED ZOMBIES. i know you are all marijuana experts in spite of the fact that you've never smoked or even seen it, but here is a translation of this story that might make sense in your propaganda laced heads: ""The maid took one and she was in the hospital—I had six, I almost died." = "The maid had 3 shots of Jack Daniels and she was in the hospital-I had 15, I almost died."
I can read your minds. "ERRRR! U don know how potent they was! U don know it cud have been the crack rocks in them! U don know! U don know!!!"
SHUT UP...and accept the fact that your parents generation lied to you and marijuana is exactly the same as alcohol. No better; no worse.
Some people get sick from pot. I'm one of them. 6 of those would have laid me out for a couple days. A couple hits of something potent nearly put me in the hospital once. Not everybody's body works the same. I can't touch the stuff or I get violently ill. Extreme pain, nausea, all sorts of nasty side effects.
Hey look, it's another sensationalist story by CNN about marijuana. What a surprise.
Really, 6 got you in bed for 3 days? I ate 10 and enjoyed my day surfing. I guess she just isn't used to it and thought she was dying, all it was, was the high. God she's an idiot.
Marijuana is considered a light hallucinogen and if you have someone who is not familiar to the effects.... Expect some serious freaking out.
There's no need for hospital visits though, it's impossible to overdose on Marijuana, IMPOSSIBLE. You will pass out looooong before you get anywhere close.
Research it, educate yourself about the plant and the effects of using it, but remember YOU CANNOT DIE FROM OVERDOSE. If someone tells you different, have whatever their smoking.
I don't do drugs and never did. However, if I ever did what she said she did, I would never tell a soul, including Paula Abdul. I would just tell everyone I mixed cold medicines by mistake and shut up. What an Ahhhshhole she is. And she was not a good person to have on Americal Idol. Glad she's gone.
This chick is stupid. She probably really means she tripped over the brownies and fell on her face....
What a Drama Queen. Pay attention to me, oh poor me, I almost died on Hash Brownies. Pay attention to me!!!!
I'd eat Paula's brownies any day.
As a person who uses and cooks with mary j (i sell my products somewhat legally) of course you can have an allergic reaction. There is a science to cooking with pot and if done wrong or if the person ingest too much you will have an reaction similiar to a panic attack. High blood pressure, sweaty palms, rapid heart beat, etc. It could possibly affect you for days depending on how much you ate. And for those pot smokers who don't think that pot gives you hallucinations, THC is considered a mild hallucinogenic.
I remember that night. She was high as a kite and I ended up f**cking her brains out. Paula's too!
I like how these stupid women always try to play up thief suffering by saying "OMG they had me on an IV!!!". IVs are pretty much routine once you're in the door. Makes medication administration much simpler and keeps you hydrated, doesn't mean you're critical. Stupid women are why I got out of nursing.
Okay, first of all, they definitely weren't "Pot" brownies, or "Left" there by a friend, because otherwise why would you bother saving brownies left behind, and put them in a freezer? And that REALLY explains Paula Abdul. She pretty much always seems high and barely understandable when in public.
Yes indeed...stop talking and take off your top.
What I want to know is why it took 6 hours for her to start feeling the effects. I have indulged in many edibles and have never had it take that long to kick in.
MORAL OF THIS STORY: Don't nick food from other people's homes without an express invitation.
While people have sensitivities and varied reactions to food, drugs, alcohol etc. I find her need to discuss this private matter oh so publically to be repulsive. I found her antics on AI inane and I find her to be in need of some therapy. She is not a healthy person.
I really do believe she is grossly exaggerating. The maid took one and landed in the hospital, and she herself almost died from it. B##ch please, that's slander. You're just trying to come up with an interesting story. I hope Paula kicks your as's.
LOL...yeah...I suppose she could be telling the truth, but it's highly unlikely. If anything, there was something other than weed in those brownies. I especially don't think one "nugget" of a brownie would send the maid to the hospital. An allergy, maybe...but were they both allergic? Come on.
