If it's disturbing for us to see what a mess Amy Winehouse is, imagine what it must be like for the people who actually know and love her.
Amy's mom, Janis Winehouse, wrote a letter to her troubled daughter, published in News of the World, urging the singer to come home, where she could get help. "This letter is my way of making sure that you know that all you have to do is come to us, Amy, and we'll do everything in our power to get you well again," the distraught mom wrote. "After all, you are still my baby and you always will be. We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped - unless you come to us - anything we tried would be in vain."
Amy, who was just nominated for six Grammys, was seen last week wandering the streets of London, at five in the morning, wearing just a bra and jeans. "Wherever you are, whatever you need," her mom continued in the heartbreaking letter, "we're here for you day and night. I hope you know that." Let's hope Amy reads the paper and goes home for the holidays.
