postheadericon Tila's got that Asian glow.

So after this post a few of you commented and asked if we thought Tila was mistaking her "alcohol allergy" with Alcohol Flush Reaction, or Asian Glow. Well obviously there's no way we can know for sure, but frankly that's what I'm thinking. That's certainly what it sounds like from this video:


Alcohol flush reaction (colloquially referred to as Asian Flush or Asian Glow) is a condition in which the face and/or body experiences flushes or blotches, due to a missense polymorphism that encodes the enzyme, acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH2) [1], normally responsible for breaking down acetaldehyde, a product of the metabolism of alcohol.[2] Flushing, or blushing, is associated with the erythema (reddening caused by dilation of capillaries) of the face, neck, shoulder, and in some cases, the entire body after consumption of alcohol.

Well, there's no way we can know. And, really, it doesn't matter. I don't think Tila is lying about this, I think she's just stupid. I know, big shock, right? I mean, she's been saying a lot lately that she's glowing...

But here's something funny I found. Not funny "haha," more funny like how you never forget the image from walking in on your parents doin' it when you were 6. Sorry for bringing that up (no, I'm not really sorry, I'm laughing at you). Anyway, we've all heard Tila tell the story of how she got the name "Tequila." Sometimes it's because "it's ironic," because she can't drink. Here's an article from nbc San Diego:

Here's a clip from the Tyra show (thanks to Nicole Allen for the heads up), where Tila tells us the story of drinking with her little girlfriends and getting sick.


But in an older blog from the hotspot, the very same one that gave us "Chunks my baby," Tila gives us a very different story:


Let's just ignore Tila basically saying she was drinking in juvie...

So Tila, is there anything that you don't lie about? You lie about the most ridiculous and STUPID things. What could you possibly have to gain by lying about how you got the name "Tila Tequila?" Do you think you gain street cred? Because no matter what, you're still a tiny, pathetic little midget that NOBODY IS AFRAID OF.

Apparently Dr. Drew is going to be on the Wendy Williams show and will be answering fan submitted questions - I say we all go on there and ask if he will put Tila on Celebrity Rehab. I've submitted a question asking him to help Tila, and this could be a possible route to get through to him and show Wendy Williams what a creep Tila is and how much help she needs. If you'd like to submit your own question, go to: http://www.wendyshow.com/2010/03/15/ask-dr-drew

I have my qualms about Dr. Drew, but he could be a good mouthpiece for the cause.

Haha. Not that being short is a bad thing.
Still, nicely written, and who else is bombarding Wendy Williams with me?

the story about her being allergic to drinks is true.

Eduardo Retardo said...

Boytoy, please see the other article about her drinking. It's linked in this article, or it's two below this one.

I may be wrong but don't they seperate the girls from boys? But yet a BOY gave her that name? That does not make sense to me if they seperate the girls from the boys, but then again I may be wrong.....

she reminds me of a compulsive liar friend (s) i have had. i had friends say they are pregnant, way too many times, when they werent. i had a friend who said she was running with a sheet of acid in her back pocket and it started raining and it all leaked into her bloodstream and she was tripping for 3 months...come on, we all had friends like this, except tila, well tila is "famous"

i think tila feels empty and she is alone this is why she might want kids so bad, that she lies about it and makes up pregnancies. yes i agree she does need help

I am Asian and I definitely get the Asian glow. Each person reacts differently to it: I only turn a bright bright red, my aunt actually get hives when she drinks.

I am 1000% sure TT's case is more like mine - we can definitely drink without any true adverse reactions to the body. She uses Zantac to counter the redness, I use Pepcid AC (it works!!) This is something that 60% percent of Asians have, nothing special at all!

She claims she is known as Tila Tequila because she is 'allergic,' well people please start calling me Jen Tonic!

One of my in-laws gets the Asian glow and he always takes allergy medicine before drinking and it gets rid of his "glow." I mean, I think it's a stretch that Tila says she never drinks and makes it sound like she'll die if she touches alcohol, but she is right in the sense that she's allergic... as are a lot of asians. I think she just needs to come clean and tell the truth that she occasionally drinks.

Bridget said...

not that i'm aiming to give her any credibility but i am severely allergic to alcohol, but i -can- temper it with h1 and h2 blocker if i really wanted to drink (however i choose not to drink since i think drinking is stupid) so her discussing her allergy could be legit. i'm not asian, for me it is a hypersensitivity to all things fermented, which is most alcohol (save for distilled stuff, but again, don't want to drink so i don't care)

i have a friend who gets the alcohol flush when she starts drinking. it normally goes away after about an hour or so...but as soon as she gets to her 3rd sip of her dirty martini...her neck is covered in blotches.

@nikki,
Same thing happens to my Husband. It doesn't bother him, but it only happens with certain types of alcohol.
