11:14 a.m. PT — Another piece of the puzzle seems to fit into this horrific story — the same day Anne crashed in Los Angeles … an episode of her podcast, “Better together“, was broadcast and it suggests that she may have sat heavily that day.
Better Together with Anne Heche and Heather Duffy
The latest “BT” episode — which AH collaborates with Heather Duffy — was published on Friday, the same day as Anne’s crash. It’s unclear if it was recorded that day or perhaps earlier, but either way…the content is somewhat disturbing in light of what ultimately transpired.
Listen to the intro to episode 62 (the latest), and you’ll quickly hear … Anne and Heather were apparently knee-deep in some vodka and wine. Anne, in particular, sounds drunk here … and even more so as the episode goes on, which lasts about 34 minutes.
Anne recounts how she’d had a rough week and explained that people had interrupted her meditation in her apartment building — same thing Johnny Depp and Amber Heard lived on in DTLA. Again, we’re not sure when this was recorded … but it was posted on Friday, the day Anne crashed.
It looks like Anne and Heather usually film their podcasts too, but there’s no visual treatment for this latest episode – just audio. There are older videos of their stuff though.
Anne Hechecrash at an LA home this week was likely just a disaster waiting to happen — as she allegedly sped down other residential streets not too long before.
TMZ has obtained video of what we’re told shows Heche flying down a quiet back road nestled in a Venice Beach neighborhood on Friday … in her same blue Mini Cooper, going at roughly the same dangerous speeds that landed her in the hospital.
The person who shot this tells us that this moment captured here — where Anne zooms by at an unrecognizable speed — was actually the third time she circled back on the same street (Cabrillo Avenue). Apparently she was going up and down and back and forth … driving wildly on every occasion, says the eyewitness who claims to have seen it all.
We’re told that on the second lap at Cabrillo – which isn’t very far from where Anne ended up crashing in Mar Vista – AH actually had people yelling at her to slow down.
Even though she was driving incredibly fast, we slowed down our new cut and you can see Anne leaning forward and grabbing the steering wheel – looking confused. It’s not a very different sentiment communicated from her body language in the clear photo taken of her earlier that day… where a bottle of some kind could be seen in the front with her.
It’s unclear what Anne’s condition is at this point following the crash – which left her with severe burns – but we do know that police were hesitant to run any tests on her at first, as she was clearly in no condition to undergo BAC checks and anything else they might want to administer.
Still, this new video simply confirms what we already reported — that Anne was seen driving erratically in other surrounding neighborhoods on the same day … all at terrifying speeds.
As for how this Cabrillo Ave incident ended… our sources say we disappeared around a corner on her third time down the street – and never came back. The video was recorded at 10:45 a.m. … about an hour later, she broke into a random person’s house.
As we reported, Heche crashed into a garage at an apartment complex shortly after noon in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles. A fire broke out, consuming her car and leaving her in critical condition with severe burns.
Anne’s accident comes on the heels of another insane wreck in LA — this one off La Brea — where a car ran a red light and plowed into other drivers … reportedly killing at least 6.
