We snark a lot on celebrities around here, and for the most part it’s warranted. Celebrties be crazy. However, I’m sure many of you saw the picture above and thought, “What the hell happened to Lisa Turtle?” and the answer is: I don’t know. What we do know, however, is that — according to People — she seems to be suffering from something, perhaps bi-polar disorder, as her mother claims.

“There are things that have traumatized her,” says Tricia, 64, who shares a home with her daughter in Pasadena, Calif. “I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”

Voorhies denies it, claims her mother is over-worrying, and says that the weird vacant stares and rambling moments in a video interview (below) that went viral earlier this year were random moments of prayer.

She’s also been working on this weird movie that, for years, has been drifting in and out of development. Or something. The trailer is … strange, and might lend credibility to suggestions that Voorhies is suffering from mental disease.
