Alaskan Bush People's Matt Brown Reveals His Rehab Journey: 'I Could See Myself Spiraling'

Originally posted 07/06/2016 11:30AM

Matt Brown didn't like the man he was becoming.

"I could see myself spiraling," the Alaskan Bush People star says exclusively in the current issue of PEOPLE.

Once he began spending more and more time drinking with friends "in town" over the past year, Brown admits, "I was more withdrawn. I was slower. Things didn't excite me the way they used to."

Brown, 33, says he first started drinking a few years ago when his family's boat broke down and they began spending time in nearby Juneau.

"I've always been able to handle city life, no problem." says Brown. "But I started hanging out with people who drank. They didn't have a problem with it so while I was around them, I started drinking."

Chelsea Handler Reveals She Had 2 Abortions at Age 16

Chelsea Handler Reveals She Had 2 Abortions at Age 16 in Playboy Essay

Originally posted 06/27/2016 03:05PM

Chelsea Handler is highlighting how America's reproductive laws helped her rectify "irresponsible" teenage decisions with a "thoughtful" one.

In a personal essay for Playboy's "Freedom Issue," Handler opens up about two abortions she had at age 16 – a subject she has long been candid about.

As a teen, Handler says she got pregnant after having unprotected sex with her boyfriend. "I just thought, 'Why not?' I can have a baby. Maybe I'll have twins and give them rhyming names," she details. "Of course, the idea that I would have a child and raise it by myself at that age, when I couldn't even find my way home at night, was ridiculous. My parents recognized that, so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood."

In a new revelation, she explains that she got pregnant once again later that year and was barely able to afford another $230 (Planned Parenthood's fee for a "safe abortion").

"Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it's still necessary to make a thoughtful decision," writes Handler, 41. "We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f--- up twice at the age of 16. I'm grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family."
