While half the offspring of New York’s best-known celebrity dads are appearing in the cast of Girls, Jack Nicholson’s daughter, Tessa Gourin, has been keeping busy with some other extracurricular activities: namely, smoking weed on New York's Upper East Side. Following in her legendarily hard-partying father’s footsteps, she was found toking on East 79th Street, charged with criminal possession of marijuana, and issued a desk ticket. Her mom, real estate broker Jennine Gourin, had no comment.

Is the cast of Lost to be forever cursed with substance abuse-related arrests? It sure seems that way, with news breaking last week that Lost star Matthew Fox was arrested for a DUI last week in the state of Oregon while driving to a fast-food restaurant at 3:30am. Sounds positively purgatorial.

A very thoughtful longread in Grantland follows the troubled career of former #1 NBA draft pick Greg Oden, whose injury-embattled career probably wasn’t helped by the fact that Oden admits he got wrapped up in the NBA lifestyle to detrimental effect: “When I played well, I'd drink to celebrate. And when I played poorly, I'd drink to forget. That second year in Portland I pretty much became an alcoholic.”

Bobby Brown’s not letting a little thing like his recent DUI (or the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston) slow down his romance game: although he proposed to fiancée Alicia Etheridge two years ago, the couple are finally ready to tie the knot, which they will do during a summer trip to Hawaii for New Edition’s reunion tour. The wedding, set to take place on June 15, will see many of Brown’s friends and family flying out for the occasion. We’re expecting our invite any day now.

Darrius Heyward-Bey, known as the wide receiver on the Oakland Raiders, ran into a spot of luck while driving over the Bay Bridge into San Francisco in early April—and yesterday saw the footballer officially charged with the crime, which could result in up to 6 months in jail if he is convicted. Police report that Heyward-Bey has been “very cooperative” throughout.
