KRISTEN JOHNSON BIDS FAREWELL TO SISTER: Kristen Johnson is mourning the loss of her sister Julie, who “lost her battle with addiction,” she shared on social media. “I know she’s finally at peace. She had the best belly laugh in the world," the Mom star said. The 52-year-old has been open about her own drug and alcohol abuse. In a 2013 op-ed for the New York Times, she wrote: "It’s time for addiction to stand up and demand some respect. Because every time someone is ostracized for being an addict, every time there’s a breathless, trumped-up, sensational headline, every time we giggle at a wasted celebrity, and every time addiction is televised as salacious entertainment, yet another addict is shamed into silence."
