Courtney Love: I made overdose "fun" for my daughter

From WENN:

Courtney Love comforted her 11-year-old daughter during her recent drug overdose, by trying to make the experience "fun". The 39-year-old former Hole frontwoman accidentally overdosed on narcotic Oxycontin at her Beverly Hills home earlier this month -- hours after being arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Love regrets that Frances Bean, her daughter with late Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain, was with her when she overdosed, but maintains she tried to make the experience as relaxed as possible - as they waited for an ambulance to arrive. She says, "That's the only time my daughter has ever, ever, ever pitched in on one of my little crises. I made it fun. I said it was going to be gross and I was going to have to make myself throw up but it was going to be OK." Since the incident, Frances has been placed in the care of Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor -- after the singer lost a bitter custody battle. O'Connor has questioned Love's ability as a mother -- but the singer insists the overdose was a minor glitch. She adds, "I'm not on some downward spiral. I'm not on narcotics. I'm fine. I just want my daughter back."
Yeah, what's wrong with you people?! Give this woman her child back!

ps. It's worth noting that Courtney overdosed on Oxycontin, Rush Limbaugh's drug of choice.

i think it is important to teach your children about overdosing.

Frances will never be a better person in the hands of Courtney Love...She could do with a great overdose of her father(Kurt Cobain!!!)... Which would have been possible if certain people would have just let it be... Sorry Frances...I cant imagine life has been easy for you. God, if Kurt was my father i'd kill to find out the truth about his death...i would just want him around. He was such a great person in every sense and meaning of the word great... Everyone has their flaws, but Kurt was surprisingly just forgivable... Too cute to be mad at!!! Rest in peace Kurt Cobain and the best in for your future Frances Cobain...:)

Why does everyone consider Cobain to be such a great person? If he had not died 1994 he surely would have continued to abuse drugs and would not have been cabable of caring for his daughter either. It wouldn't have mattered how much he loved her, he just wouldn't have been there enough mentally and emotionally.
