Happy Birthday to Amanda Peterson from Admin!! She would have been 46 today if she were still alive. Prayers and thoughts for her family! I know this is not directly about Amanda, but it should be posted here since Corey Haim, Corey Fieldman, and Amanda knew one another when they were young actors in Hollywood, and they all three allegedly suffered from sexual abuse by unknown perpetrators working in Hollywood. I often wonder if Amanda's drug abuse started around the time she meet Corey Haim, and Corey Fieldman since it was drugs that also help destroy their career. I never had any knowledge of Corey Haim, Core So you see, it was not the drugs that first destroyed their careers, but the sexual abuse that likely caused them to turn to drugs to escape the shame of what had happened to them. I hope the truth of what happened to them is revealed, whatever that truth might be.
