20 Celebrity Lushes
Celebrities are like regular people in that they occasionally overindulge in things they should consume in moderation.

But too many stars have battled drug addiction and alcoholism, and although many are currently sober, some still struggle to stay clean.

Lindsay Lohan, who charmed audiences with films such as "The Parent Trap," "Freaky Friday" and "Herbie Fully Loaded," has been to rehab six times to battle her addictions.

She told Oprah Winfrey in 2013: "(Alcohol) in the past was the gateway to other things, for me... I tried cocaine with alcohol... It allowed me to drink more. I think...

Craig Ferguson
Craig Ferguson might be sending David Letterman a big retirement gift – because whether he replaces Letterman as the Late Show host or not, he’s getting paid.

The New York Daily News reports Ferguson was sly enough to add a clause in his contract that promises him a pay-out if he doesn’t get the Late Night job when Letterman retires. The number ranges anywhere from $8 million to $12 million, according to reports.

If the rumors are true, CBS is gunning to get a star from outside the network to replace Letterman. Right now, hot names include Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert and Neil Patric...

The L.A. Confidential star, who was born in England but moved to Geelong, Australia aged three, appeared as a guest this week on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and the host spent much of the episode making jokes about the city of Canberra.

Comedian Craig Ferguson and Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan turned the air blue on TV on Thursday night after realizing they could curse without repercussions behind facial pollution masks.

The Late Late Show host Ferguson offered his guest a mask after Morgan revealed he was suffering from a bad cold, and when he joined the actor, the pair quickly figured their censored swear words could not even upset lip readers.

Morgan joked, "Holy s**t! Nobody knows what the f**k I'm saying," prompting an excited Ferguson to put his mask on and state, "We can cuss... Wow! What an awesome idea. I lo...

The Boys Club: Male Celebs Who Have Overcome Drug & Alcohol Addiction

8/21/2010 12:00pm EDT
America has become bombarded with celebrity scandals, arrests, and relapses this year. 2010 has been filled with tales of drug and alcohol abuse, and the celebrity slip-ups just keep on coming.

The Lohans refuse to admit that their daughter has a problem, Mel Gibson’s life has spiraled out of control, and the E! Network has had to add another chapter to Charlie Sheen’s True Hollywood Story.

Another concerning aspect of the celebrity circus is the fact that Lindsay Lohan is reported to make up to $1 million for her first post-rehab interview. This appears to be more of a reward than a puni...

At 88-years-old, Betty White has the sizzling hot career that most 20-year-old starlets could only dream of. Refusing to sit back and enjoy her “golden years,” White is one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood today.

It’s no wonder that many demanded to see the funny lady host “Saturday Night Live...

The Most Overrated & Underrated Talk Show Hosts

4/18/2008 9:22am EDT
Jon Stewart
In recent years, the late night talk show has given way to an avalanche of reruns and trash TV dotting the midnight landscape, making the late night chatfest in itself underrated.

Of course, there are still plenty of these shows to be found around the dial, especially on ABC, NBC and CBS (FOX apparently is still too shell-shocked from "The Chevy Chase Show" to attempt reentry into the fray). There are other spots where these shows can be found thanks to the advent of cable and satellite television leaving enough of a selection for viewers of divergent tastes to find the host they like...
