Brigid Berlin and Bruce Pecheur

Brigid Berlin with Trash star Bruce Pecheur

After cleaning up from drugs and alcohol during the '80s Brigid Berlin relapsed in about 2006 on a glass of wine and went into rehab at CARON (Comprehensive Addiction Treatment Recovery for Life) in Pennsylvania on 26 August 2007 and Silver Hill Hospital in Connecticut in 2008. She is currently clean and sober and lives in New York with her pugs, spending much of her time creating needlepoint art cushions based on tabloid headlines. In November 2015 a book of her Polaroids was published. A Q & A with Brigid at the Strand, in which she says she spends most of her time watching Fox News and "hates" Hillary Clinton, can be found here.

An interview of Brigid by Vincent Fremont appeared in the June-July 2008 issue of Interview magazine and can be found here.
