Judd Completes Stint In Rehab

ASHLEY JUDD underwent a 47-day program at a treatment centre in February (06) in order to deal with issues of her past including depression and isolation. The 38-year-old endured a "chaotic" and "dysfunctional" childhood and slept to combat depression and exhibited a "compulsion to clean". Judd is the daughter of Grammy-winning country sing-songwriter NAOMI JUDD and her sister is WYNONNA JUDD, also a Grammy winner. She explains to American magazine Glamour, "I needed help. I was in so much pain." The star describes herself as a "hyper-vigilant child" who attempted to behave perfectly in order to compensate for her lack of security. She went to 13 schools in 12 years and shifted from living with her mother, her father MICHAEL CIMINELLA and her grandparents. Judd says, "Supposedly, my sister was the 'messed-up' one and I was the 'perfect' one." It was during a visit with Wynonna while she was being treated for food addiction at the centre that counsellors reportedly noticed Ashley's emotional problems and approached her about seeking help. She says, "They said, 'No one ever does an intervention on people like you. You look too good. You're too smart and together. But you (and Wynonna) come from the same family, so you come from the same wound.' "No one had validated my pain before." Ashley credits her stint at the centre for helping her four-year marriage to Scottish race car driver DARIO FRANCHITTI. She adds, "I was unhappy, and now I'm happy. Now, even when I'm having a rough day, it's better than my best day before treatment."
