It was hard to look away from That 70s Show actress Lisa Robin Kelly’s mug shot this week. Wild-eyed and hair askew, Kelly was arrested for domestic violence last weekend following an altercation with her ex-boyfriend, John Michas. But despite her crazed appearance, Kelly maintains that not only was she not intoxicated at the time of the arrest, she’s been sober for three months. Well... We'll say nothing.

Crazy Town singer and Celebrity Rehab alum Seth Binzer (better known to most readers as "Shifty Shellshock") fell into a coma earlier this week, but he’s since emerged, though he remains hospitalized. Sources say that drugs were likely involved, given the rocker’s well-publicized struggles with addiction.

It’s not easy being Drizzy—and sometimes, the hip-hop superstar says, he needs a little something to take the edge off. He admitted to The Guardian that he has “sipped codeine” and “smoked weed” and that he “drink[s] wine,” but he says he keeps it all in moderation. “I'm not into drugs," he said. "Outside the ones I just mentioned…I care too much about what I have. I'm not going to throw it away for that.”

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards’ spectacular descent into drug-addled chaos was a major plot point on the show last season—but at the Bravo upfronts in New York City this week, Richards sounded focused on her recovery. “I’m not going to be sitting around with these girls sipping cocktails and just hanging out,” she said. “I’m going to be very into AA and spending time with the people who have been supporting me.”

Legendary record producer Scott Storch—who produced hits for Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce—has been hit with a monster lawsuit from an aspiring recording artist named Treena Ruberg who claims she paid Storch to produce tracks, which he was then too “drugged out” to deliver. Ruberg says Storch mentioned that he’d had drug problems but had recovered fully. Given that he hasn’t had a hit single in the better part of a decade, that sounds suspect.
