At the age of 90, Betty White has built an incredible career as one of the industry’s top comediennes, tackling frequently bawdy subject matter—but there’s one topic she won’t touch in her comedy. “I won't have anything to do with drugs,” she explains. “I don't find them funny, I don't find them cute, I don't find them to laugh at. I've seen too many people get in trouble with them, so I draw the line at that kind of thing.” 

As if Orlando Bloom didn’t have enough to contend with as a target in the notorious drug-fueled Hollywood “bling ring,” the heartthrob recently found himself in another messy situation: a naked man screaming about being high on drugs was arrested in front of his home in the Hollywood hills. Next time, it might behoove the gentleman to pick a lower-profile neighborhood to go streaking in.

After a highly publicized series of legal battles, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is finally in the big house: she checked into an Indiana prison early Thursday morning to begin serving out her 5-year sentence, which she chose over treatment, despite having several chances to complete a drug court. We’re hoping that prison turns out to be preferable to the alternative—but this reality star could well be in for a brutal reality check. 

Demi Moore’s stint in rehab may have done good things for her public image, but those closest to her—her daughters Rumer, Scout, and Talullah—remain concerned for her health. RadarOnline reports that the girls are “worried about everything she is doing lately and they’re getting mad at her. Demi has been doing things that make them worry that maybe she isn’t staying sober and they’re not happy about her behavior.” Rehab as a PR stunt rather than an earnest attempt at sobriety? That would be a first. 

Rapper De’Angelo Holmes, one-half of the hip-hop duo Ying Yang Twins (who memorably announced, “We finta go to the club and get crunk with Britney, hey!” on Britney Spears’ 2003 album In the Zone), is facing DUI and child endangerment charges stemming from an arrest in Georgia last week, where he failed a field sobriety test after being pulled over with his two young children in the car. Yikes. Maybe a little less “getting crunk in the club” and a little more “parenting” would be advisable going forward.
