Some viewers have taken umbrage with the smoke-filled offices and scotch-fueled meetings depicted on Mad Men, saying it makes them want to inhale and imbibe—but the show’s star, Jon Hamm, isn’t too concerned. “I have read that watching the show makes some people at home want to smoke and drink,” he said. “I think, well, knock yourself out." That seems to be Don Draper’s secret.

To say that it’s been a tough few months for Bobby Brown would be a massive understatement, but he’s now got one more challenge to add to his growing list of obstacles. The R&B singer and ex-husband of Whitney Houston was picked up for DUI in Reseda, California, blowing a BAC of .12 in the middle of the day.

Actor Chris Klein has been out of the spotlight for a minute—especially since checking himself into rehab and getting sober in 2010—but with his upcoming return to film in American Reunion, he’s talking about the disease that he says almost took his life. “I would have died,” he said. “I think about that every single day.” Given Natasha Lyonne’s well-publicized struggles with addiction, we’re beginning to wonder if there was an American Pie curse.

Eccentric basketball player and reality television personality Dennis Rodman owes nearly $900,000 in child support to his wife Michelle Rodman—and his finance manager is speaking out about why the money remains unpaid. “"In all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic,” she said. “"He is often unable to obtain work because of the sickness. And his sickness is getting increasingly worse."

After being the butt of several jokes on the show about her trips to rehab and suspect mental health, Lindsay Lohan has booked a guest starring spot on Glee—and while no details about her role are available yet, speculation is running high that she’ll play a judge during Nationals in the show’s finale. The question on everyone’s mind, though: Will she go blonde or red?
