“We’re not drug addicts but whatever helps you sleep at night,” Lowell, 26, responded to a user that called her and her costar Amber Portwood “drug addict losers” on April 5.

In another tweet, the MTV star added that she has “been sober for going on 5 months.”

One fan, who congratulated Lowell, asked specifically if she was referring to marijuana and wrote that hopes she has “noticed a difference.”

“I have! Thank you!!!” the Conquering Chaos author replied.

Stars Who’ve Battled Mental Health Issues

As previously reported, Lowell sought treatment for her mental health struggles in November 2017 after having suicidal thoughts. One month later, the reality TV personality returned home, however, she headed back to treatment in January.

“It’s nothing to do with you, Tyler. It’s my inner child s—t. I’m telling you right now, it’s nothing to do with what you do,” Lowell told her husband Tyler Baltierra, on the Monday, April 9, episode of the MTV series about her decision to return to treatment. “It’s me being a f—king 12-year-old and my dad leaving or me being, like, 8 and my mom drinking all the time and not being there. It’s my own s—t. It’s just coming out when things go on in life. That’s how trauma works. It’s nothing to do with you, you’re awesome. You’re supportive.”

Lowell, who revealed on the February 26 episode of Teen Mom OG that she suffered a miscarriage, completed her program and confirmed she was back home on the same day the episode aired.

The Never Too Late author, who is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Andrew Glennon opened up to Us Weekly last month about managing her depression during her pregnancy.

That is a serious blaze, reportedly at or near the 50th floor of the tower.

News has been trickling in over the last hour about what’s going on (below):

With at least one serious injury reported, it sounds like things have at least thankfully calmed down somewhat.

Still scary though!

Of course, Trump found time to tweet about it (below):

OK, Donnie boy. THANK YOU!

Seriously though, just glad there weren’t more serious injuries.

Gettin’ back into the swing of things. Carrie Underwood shared a new photo that shows a glimpse of her whole face five months after an accident resulted in multiple harrowing injuries.

Celebrity Health Scares

The country singer, 35, posted a shot of herself on Instagram on Friday, April 6, singing into a microphone while on stage with her band, captioning it, “Missed these guys. #bandrehearsals.” The Grammy winner was dressed casual in ripped jeans, a navy shirt and sneakers, with her blonde hair tied up into a bun.

American Idol Winners

As previously reported, the “Jesus Take the Wheel” singer had gone under the radar following her November 2017 accident, where she slipped outside of her Nashville home and suffered a broken wrist and other injuries, including having to get 40 to 50 stitches in her face. The incident resulted in Underwood having to cancel her performance at the Country Rising concert a week later.

The American Idol winner later warned that she “might look a bit different” in a post to her fan club members, saying, “I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse.” Underwood also remarked in the January 2018 post, “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”

Stars Gone Country!

The pic of her rockin’ out with her crew wasn’t the first time fans have seen her since the accident. Two days before sharing the photo of her on stage, she shared a black-and-white photo of herself looking focused in the studio. In December, she also posted a selfie with a scarf covering her face, captioning it, “When in 5 degree weather, wrap your @caliabycarrie scarf around your neck and face…you keep warm AND look like an awesome winter snow ninja!”
