Pointer Sister Leaves Rehab
As one of the three Pointer Sisters, youngest sibling June helped to belt out such '80s hits as "Jump" and "I'm So Excited." But life of late has been less than exciting for the singer. This past July 7, Pointer, 46, was released from a month-long treatment program for her addiction to crack cocaine and to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, reports the Aug. 7 issue of PEOPLE. Her graduation from the program comes after a lengthy descent into drugs that began when she was 13 and culminated with the loss of both her home and a relationship, both personal and professional, with her sisters, Anita and Ruth -- who officially dropped June from the group last winter. Now that she's cleaned up, a reunion might be possible. "We're just anxious to have June back," Anita, 52, tells PEOPLE. "It's been a long road for all of us." June concurs, saying that is her dream to be back onstage with her two siblings. "That," she says, "is my favorite high."
