Ted Casablanca’s Addiction Mania: E Online is Hardly News

Here at 12 Steppin, we know that addiction is a serious problem that affects millions of people world wide. However, we also know there is always time to mix fun with facts and there are certainly times when we will show the lighter side of the addiction world as it pertains to outrageous celebrity stories, television shows and more.

But there comes a point when news sources, online or otherwise, must answer to the credibility given to them. And maybe this is a problem with Google News rather than, but even in a humble blog like ours, we would certainly demand more effort in our posts than the last installation of Ted Casablanca’s “The Awful Truth” (which we think should be renamed, “The Awful Blog”).

The “article” titled “Addiction Mania! Which Celebrity Needs Help the Most?” not only lacks the effort to compose more than three sentences for the post, but it also appears in Google News, posing as a real news article. In fact, the post does little more than call Lindsay Lohan a lesbian; big news.

Lindsay Lohan Joins Substance Abuse Classes

Only hours after a warrant for her arrest was dismissed earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan enrolled in a substance abuse class. Lohan joined a special course for DUI offenders offered by the state of California.

The warrant for Lindsay Lohan was dismissed by a California judge after he determined that Lohan had not violated her probation due to her drunk driving conviction in 2007. The substance abuse program that Lohan joined is just one of the requirements that she must complete in order to be in full compliance of the program.  

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer stated that Lohan has been in full compliance with the requirements of the program since day one.

Addiction: The Only Disease You Can Get Arrested For Having

It is practically common knowledge that addiction is a disease. In clinical terms, addiction is used to describe a physical dependence, obsession or compulsion which include: compulsive gambling, alcoholism, drug addiction and more. But for some people, the disease becomes a spectacle for all to witness. The following is just a short compilation of celebrity mug shots which have appeared throughout the pages of magazines and newspapers around the world as a consequence of their addictions.  


Robert Downey Jr.

Before his big comeback to acting as Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man), Robert Downey Jr. was arrested several times on drug-related charges. He also spent many years in and out of rehabilitation programs by court order, only to be incarcerated for violating those terms.


Lindsay Lohan

Cameras are nothing new to Lindsay Lohan. However, this shot is slightly less flattering than the average head shot. In 2007, Lindsay Lohan was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine just one week after leaving an alcohol treatment center.



Paris Hilton

During a time when it seemed almost fashionable to be arrested for drunk driving, Paris Hilton wouldn’t be left behind. After a DUI, reckless driving charge and general probation violations, Paris casually posed for this famous mug shot while being booked for her short stay at Los Angeles prison. 


Heather Locklear
After being arrested for driving under the influence, Heather Locklear was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail. The actress was also suspected of being under the influence of prescription drugs.
