Mocking nineties/aughties Christian rock band Creed is one of America’s greatest past times, along with baseball and (in my case) ignoring baseball. But on a recent episode of Oprah’s Where Are They Now, Creed frontman Scott Stapp throws a monkey wrench into things by daring to humanize himself.
Prepare to mourn martini and gimlet fans: the juniper plant that produces delicious gin is under attack by a deadly fungus—and so close to the holidays!
Nearly a week after Kim Richards, Queen Bleak of the Real Housewife kingdom, was arrested for battery and public intoxication, she sat down with Dr. Phil to apologize for her actions.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards was arrested after reportedly kicking a police officer during a drunken episode. The incident occurred early Thursday morning at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills.
Put down the Red Bull and vodka, guys, because the combination just makes you want to drink more. Something in the milk ain’t clean with these energy drinks.
Earlier this week, Barbara Walters decided to use her platform on The View to share her fascinating opinion that Woody Allen can't have molested Dylan Farrow because she's seen him be nice to his new children. On Thursday, she implied that it's been an open secret around ABC that Elizabeth Vargas is an alcoholic. And…
In an interview aired on Good Morning America Friday, 20/20 host Elizabeth Vargas spoke with George Stephanopoulos about her trip to rehab for alcoholism and her history with the disease, explaining, "You become so isolated with the secret and so lonely, because you can't tell anyone what's happening."

Can blackouts help treat alcoholism? In a word: yes. Sort of like how spending a sunny Saturday hugging the toilet can treat wanting to drink rum ever again.
The first season or two of Mad Men made drinking all day, womanizing all night, and chain smoking seem really glamorous. But Don Draper doesn't wear his unhealthy lifestyle as handsomely in 1968 as he did in 1960. Now pasty, puffy, and sweaty, his bloodshot eyes are the windows to someone who is dead inside. It did…
By virtue of the fact that it’s an essay in the Saturday Wall Street Journal (a mixed bag of insightful cultural commentary, impossibly palatial real estate listings, and thinly-veiled conservative ravings about America’s social decadence), and because its second paragraph begins with the vaguely-judgmental sentence,…
A new study of wealthy British neighborhoods has revealed a trend that most Stephen Sondheim fans already take for granted: wealthy women who “lunch” tend to booze up more in all their leisure time than their working- or even middle-class counterparts. To the sociology mobile!
