I have just been reminded that Dalton Trumbo was credited as writer for Spartacus, despite him expecting to have to use a pseudonym, Douglas said no to the pseudonym, it helped to break the blacklist.

I have never watched that show, but from what I have read it appears that her boyfriend/partner actually dropped the charges against her, but the prosecution was going ahead with the trial anyway. It is sad when anyone takes their own life.

Sorry Steve, that's an unacceptable comment - the key word is "alleged".

If I ever saw her on TV, I'm not aware of it - this "celeb" thing just passes me by. But obviously she was struggling with some demons if she took her own life. It's sad when anyone can't see a better way out than that.

Neither me. However the distinction between her and millions of others with no discernible talent is being conflated by the media with their social status. Had she been living in a tower block on universal credit her actions would have been reported in a very different way, if at all.
In the New British Empire, Flack and others (e.g. Winkleman). can now be safely categorized as losers-without-value or social use.
It is, after all, how the English regard mental health and "winning"

Yes, but the converse does not apply. We don't get to vilify people in this way about whom we really know nothing real just because they are celebrities

No, it isn't. It might be how some English people think, it's not how all English people think.
