Wino's mom: Let us help you, dear




The latest proud graduate of the Lynne Spears-Dina Lohan School of Parenting, it seems, is Janis Winehouse. Reuters reports that Amy's mom penned a letter to a British tabloid over the weekend begging the famously drug- and booze-addled, Grammy-nominated songstress to return to this happy little place we call reality. (Because, you know, a tabloid is the best place for a mother-daughter connection.) "We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped -- unless you come to us -- anything we tried would be in vain," Janis wrote in the News of the World. "I pile hope upon hope that your strong will can bend for just a moment to make that decision and come home to me." Janis referenced recent pictures of a distraught Wino wandering the streets of London in only a bra and jeans. "All I wanted to do was rush into those pictures and wrap you up in a big, warm blanket," she wrote. "Early fame has overwhelmed you, it's dizzied you and muddled your mind. For a moment, forget you're a superstar. You're also young and vulnerable, no stronger than any of the rest of us. You think you're strong enough to get through this on your own, darling, but you're not."
