The actress slash mom still looks pretty damn good for 52! (That is, when she's not smoking up a storm.) Who cares if she's had plastic surgery or not, right?

Melanie Spends Quality Time (And Money) With Stella

Yesterday we caught Melanie Griffith and daughter Stella shopping at American Apparel, and it looks like the two are closer than ever after Mel's recent stint in rehab. And that's not all the shopping these two have done since mom came home!

A source who recently ran into the mom/daughter duo at Urban Outfitters in Hollywood tells X17online exclusively, "I saw Melanie, Stella and some of her girlfriends shopping at the Melrose store the other day, and Mel generously spent hundreds of dollars on the girls. She was such a sweetheart, and she's definitely back on track ... she clearly enjoyed spoiling her daughter and her friends!"

Aww, Mel! We want to go shopping with you too!

Yesterday we spotted Melanie Griffith leaving Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, and it looks like the time she spent in rehab has definitely helped her! Melanie was all smiles as she tipped the valet, and she even took some time to chat with the photographers, telling them she feels "wonderful" and that she's still very much in love with Antonio. Aww!

Melanie Griffith Went To Rehab To Avoid Relapsing On Painkillers

Sep 9, 2009 09:35 AM

antonioellen99.jpg This sounds like a smart move, and her whole family is behind her, so we're glad the 52-year-old actress is getting the help she needs.

Antonio Banderas sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and revealed that his wife of fifteen years is back in rehab to avoid getting hooked on narcotics after several knee operations stemming from a skiing accident a year and a half ago. On today's Ellen DeGeneres Show, Antonio said Melanie was "obligated to use narcotics," and she became worried so she headed back to treatment as a precaution.

"In March, she came to me and said, 'I'm feeling a little bit weak in my determination for this...so I just thought to go to rehabilitation by myself,'" Antonio said. "So the whole entire family is supporting her and I am supporting her and at this particular time more than ever. I'm very proud of her."

"We have been following some type of therapy with other families," he added. "There are a number of invisible heroes working in AA all around the world. I just say to families, don't get embarrassed just confront this problem head-on. And don't hide from that because there is a beautiful gift at the end of this tunnel and it is the person that you love back and that is what I am searching for. I am very proud of my wife."

Maybe Melanie was worried that she might head down the same path as DJ AM or Michael Jackson if she wasn't careful? These recent celebrity deaths have perhaps opened people's eyes to the dangers of post-op painkillers, especially when there is a history of addiction. Would DJ AM have relapsed if he hadn't needed meds to help him get through the burns he suffered following that horrific plane crash? Would Michael Jackson ever have been introduced all sorts of narcotics had he not gone through the pyrotechnics accident on the set of the Pepsi commercial that left him with third degree burns? Just something to think about!

Get better Mel! We're rooting for you!

Melanie Griffith Goes Back To Rehab!

Aug 24, 2009 02:55 PM

mgriffith033109_01_X17.jpg Melanie Griffith has checked into the Cirque Lodge in Utah, her rep has confirmed. In a statement released today, her publicist says, "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."

However, Star mag reports that this stint in rehab is a bid to save her marriage! An insider says, "The reason Melanie checked in was her husband was demanding that she get clean and sober. He told her that if she didn't get the help she needed it would be the end of their marriage."

According to another source, "Melanie's struggling right now, but Antonio has been checking in on her as much as he is allowed, making sure she gets back on her feet. Without Antonio in her life, I honestly believe Melanie would be dead." Yikes!

Hopefully the 52-year-old actress is getting the help she needs!

Hmm, guess not!

We snapped Melanie Griffith and her 12-year-old daughter Stella at the airport (first at LAX and then at Charles de Gaulle in Paris) and the aging actress puffed on a cancer stick right in front of her little girl! Oh, and this isn't the first time she's done this either!

Are we making a fuss out of nothing, or should someone light a fire under Mel's butt? (Of course, we're referring to her ass, not the cigarette).
