Melanie Griffith


We suppose it's important for any Working Girl to have a steady routine.

That's apparently why Melanie Griffith is spending time in rehab once again—it's all part of the plan.

"She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy," the actress's rep told Monday. "This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."

Well, there goes our theory that being married to Antonio Banderas is the solution to everything.

Griffith, whose mom is former Hitchcock-approved icy blonde Tippi Hedren, sought treatment in 2000 at Daniel Freeman Hospital in Marina Del Rey, Calif., for an addiction to painkillers, which she started abusing after suffering a neck injury.

The 52-year-old mother of three also logged time in a facility in Minnesota in 1988 to battle alcoholism and cocaine addiction after shooting her Oscar-nominated role in Working Girl.
