    In a new interview with People, Rob Lowe’s son, John Owen Lowe, gives his father a lot of credit for helping him to accept that he had a substance abuse problem and needed to get help. In the same interview, Rob Lowe said he recognized a lot of himself in his 26-year-old son, who graduated from Stanford University and now works as a writer on “9-1-1: Lone Star,” Rob Lowe’s series about a veteran Manhattan firefighter, the lone survivor of his fire station in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, who starts anew Texas. The elder Lowe said he started drinking heavily as a teenager. In the 1980s, the actor shot to fame as a teen idol and as one of the hot young “St. Elmo’s Fire” stars who hung out together in the infamous “Brat Pack” — all of which meant he liked to work hard and party hard as well. Lowe, now 57, began to see that his son was similarly struggling in his teens and early college years. “I really knew Johnny was a chip off the...

John Mulaney has always chosen honesty when it comes to his struggle with addiction and his attempts to stay sober. During his 2012 comedy special, New in Town, the former Saturday Night Live writer opened up about his decision to get sober. “I quit drinking ’cause I used to drink too much, and then I would black out and I would ‘ruin’ parties, or so I’m told,” he shared at the time. “When you do that enough, when you black out drinking and you do crazy things you kind of become, like, Michael Jackson. Like, any story anyone says about you might be true, and even you don’t know by the end.” Mulaney revealed in 2014 that he...
    The Arizona Republican Party is on the brink of censuring Cindy McCain for campaigning for Joe Biden - a move her daughter Meghan slammed Sunday as coming from 'troglodytes.' The party singled out John McCain's widow for rebuke after she publicly split from it and endorsed Biden in the presidential election, following Donald Trump's relentless attacks on the war hero after his death. The censure passed the Maricopa County GOP Saturday, with 'near unanimous cheering/approval,' according to a tweet from the Arizona Republicans' account. The full party will consider the censure motion later this month.  But the party earned a swift rebuke both from Cindy McCain and her daughter Meghan, a co-host of ABC's The View. 'I like people who don't start insurrections or commit acts of domestic terrorism against our republic,' Meghan McCain tweeted, a reference to Trump's slur against her father that: 'I like heroes who weren't captured.' And Cindy McCain tweeted: 'I am a proud lifelong Republican and will continue to support candidates who put country over party and stand for the rule of law.' The censure...
