They're rich, famous, and fabulous. And they'll never "blame it on the a a a a a a  alcohol" since they don't touch the stuff. From Hello Beautiful, celebrity teetotalers:

 

 

 

Jennifer Hudson revealed that she’s been sober her whole life during an appearance on “Chelsea Lately” Thursday night.

 

When host Chelsea Handler asked how she prepared for her role as a drug addict in the new film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, the actress said it was hard because she’s never even had a drink, let alone try drugs.

 

“I’ve never done anything, so that was hard to play this role. I’ve never had a drink in my life. I’m sober. I’m like, ‘Okay, this is new to me,’” she said. “Normally as as actor, you have things to pull from. I was like, ‘I don’t know what it’s like to feel any of that.”

 

“What do you mean you’ve never had a drink?” a surprised Chelsea asked. “What are you waiting for?”

“I don’t know. I’ve never been interested. Nobody ever believes it,” she responded. “When I got this role, I was like, ‘Oh my god, what am I gonna do? What am I gonna pull from to play the role?’”

J-Lo said she stays away from alcohol to keep her youthful glow.  ”I think that ruins your skin,” she said. “Of course, during celebratory toasts, everybody’s like, ‘You can’t toast with water!’ So I’ll toast with alcohol and just take a sip.”

The supermodel said she doesn’t drink because of the awful taste. “Every now and then I’ll order some wine at the table. I’ll only take two sips, but I’ll keep holding the glass cause it makes me feel sexy, but I still don’t drink it because it still tastes kind of nasty to me,” she said.

"... the awesomely gifted Alisha DeFreitas... tells her story of  her brush with the Culture of Death and her refusal to play the world’s game. I love that she gives two well-aimed upraised middle fingers: one to the abortion culture of the Left, and one to the Randian Makers vs. Takers class warriors of the Right. She’s one of my heros."

"While reading your blog I often sense a certain amount of conviction on your behalf, which makes me wonder why isn’t everyone reading the blogs of a woman who actually “gets it.”
