Another day, another drama ..... Pete`s cleaned up his act a bit and isn`t rolling around completely wasted anymore, so now the tabloids are gonna try to turn him into some violent nutter instead. *yawn...sigh* Give it a rest guys, will ya? When are you going to get it? WE DON`T CARE what you say. Those who hate Pete still hate him, and those of us who love him, STILL AND ALWAYS WILL love him. Why bother with the drama stories? Everything about Pete`s life is dramatic, WE ALREADY KNOW.EVERYONE already knows! For godsake just leave him alone will you!!!
