Sterling Knight stars opposite Demi Lovato on Sonny With a Chance and has spoken with the troubled actress since she entered rehab a few weeks ago. How is Demi doing? Well.
"She's in good spirits," Knight told E! News last night. "I didn't want to bother her too much because I want her to get her rest. I know she's been overworked for a long time. I'm hoping she stays strong and gets through it."
While Lovato has reportedly expressed a desire to be home by Thanksgiving, her rep recently said this was unlikely. Her health must come before all else.As for Demi's decision to get help now for issues initially described as both "physical and mental," Knight applauds his friend for taking such a necessary, mature step.
"You'd rather nip it in the bud sooner than later," he said. "I know she's been real busy - almost entirely too busy for any human being, let along a 17-year-old girl. It's nice that she's handling her stuff."
We agree. In Lovato's absence, Sonny with a Chance will retool a bit and air its third season as scheduled.
