Actress MELANIE GRIFFITH won't be attending the wedding of MICHAEL DOUGLAS and CATHERINE ZETA JONES on Saturday (18NO00) because she will be in a clinic for drug addicts.
The 43-year-old ex-wife of DON JOHNSON is trying to wean herself off slimming pills and other prescription drugs.
Griffith became friendly with Jones when she starred with ANTONIO BANDERAS, Griffith's fourth husband, in MASK OF ZORRO. She is thought to have passed on tips to Jones about how to lose weight following the birth of her son, DYLAN, in August (00).
Last week Griffith checked into the DANIEL FREEMAN MARINA HOSPITAL in Los Angeles under the name of legendary hellraiser TALLULAH BANKHEAD. She is expected to stay at least a month. (PDD/WNTSU)
