Dennis Rodman has been making an ass out of himself for years, but lately things have taken a slightly more insane turn when he started defending the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un, even going so far as to refer to him as a “friend”. He also claimed that an American who’s been detained there for over a year now should have thought harder about whatever it is he did and basically, he was shit outta luck. A lot of people didn’t take too kindly to that, so Rodman later apologised and admitted he was drunk during the press conference when he said all this shit. And so his journey to rehab began…
“Dennis Rodman came back from North Korea in pretty rough shape emotionally. The pressure that was put on him to be a combination ‘super human’ political figure and ‘fixer’ got the better of him,” his agent, Darren Prince, said Sunday in a written statement. “He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.”
Prince said Rodman is at a facility in New Jersey, one with a “28- or 30-day” program. He said Rodman drank heavily in North Korea during a recent tumultuous trip to the secretive state to play a basketball game with some former NBA stars against national team players from the regime.
“His drinking escalated to a level that none of us had seen before,” Prince said Saturday.
Rodman entered a center on Wednesday, a source close to him told CNN.
Ha! Something tells me Dennis Rodman is on far more than booze, but maybe I’m wrong. Either way, glad to say he’s back in a treatment program…

Dennis Rodman has been spending a bit of time in North Korea, where he’ll be heading up a basketball tournament TODAY against the country’s players. He spent a bit of time there last year, as well, and seems to have struck up a bit of a friendship with Kim Jong-un, which is hilarious and bizarre and kind of terrifying. This game is in celebration of the tyrant’s birthday and features ex-NBA players Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, and Vin Baker as well as Craig Hodges, Doug Christie and Charles D Smith, among others. Something tells me North Korea will win…
A lot of people have been looking to Rodman to speak out against the detainment of American Kenneth Bae, who’s been imprisoned there for over a year, though the exact reasons aren’t clear. However, they must be clear to Dennis, as he thinks Bae deserves it and Kim Jong-un is a pretty sweet dude. When he was asked about this in an interview, here’s how Dennis replied:
“Kenneth Bae did one thing… If you understand what Kenneth Bae did. Do you understand what he did in this country? Why is he held captive here in this country, why?… I would love to speak on this.
“You know, you’ve got ten guys here, ten guys here, they’ve left their families, they’ve left their damn families, to help this country, as in a sports venture. That’s ten guys, all these guys here, does anyone understand that? Christmas, New Year’s. I don’t give a rat’s ass what the hell you think! I’m saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them… they dared to do one thing, they came here!”
LOL, okay, so basically Dennis Rodman has no idea what the hell he’s talking about and is probably getting paid a shit ton of money to be there and is shitting himself over the thought that if he makes one wrong move, he could end up in Bae’s situation, too. But surely he’s not broke yet, so why even bother to go there? I don’t know, maybe he is that much of a fucking idiot (or on that many drugs) that he truly believes he’s “friends” with Kim Jong-un.

“With all I’ve been through with marriage, divorce and girlfriends, I’m the wrong guy to ask. I happen to like Jesse and hope this works out for them. However, should it not, with all her success and money, I’d be happy to take Sandra Bullock out for the time of her life.”
—Dennis Rodman gets in line behind the rest of Hollywood, lookin to score some Sandra Bullock on the rebound. March Madness!! We could probably do a bracket of all the celebrity guys who will be vying for her attention.

Rehab visits come in waves, like deaths and flu pandemics and vodka poured down Lindsay Lohan’s throat. (Who am I kidding? That last one’s a steady current.) Don’t get excited, though; Lindsay’s not in rehab again just yet. Right now we have VJ Matt Pinfield, who checked himself in last week, and Dennis Rodman, who’s agreed to do outpatient treatment although friends were hoping he’d opt for inpatient.
The former NBA star, who has battled addiction for years, has agreed to enter an outpatient program where he’ll regularly see a counselor.
While it is a step in the right direction, last week family and friends of Rodman, including his former Los Angeles Lakers coach, Phil Jackson, unsuccessfully reached out to the star, who refused to admit himself to an inpatient facility.
“Yes, they tried an intervention, but unfortunately Dennis refused to go,” Rodman’s rep tells E! News. “We all know how amazing he is when sober and we hope he gets there soon.”
Meanwhile, David Hasselhoff was found passed out on his floor by his 16-year-old daughter Hayley. She called her mother, Pamela Bach — from whom David is bitterly estranged — and she came over and rushed him to the hospital. He had severe alcohol poisoning.
A source said a frightened Hayley kept “slapping her dad’s face” to keep him alive. “He was barely breathing when they got him at the hospital … He’s recovering. Pam was his bedside till 4a.m. this morning. This is about the 7th time he’s been taken to a hospital over the last few years with alcohol poisoning. How many visits will it take before he dies?”
Indeed. It’s especially heartbreaking because The Hoff’s tried so, so hard to get and stay sober over the years. I give him a rough time sometimes, but I know it’s killing him to put his daughters through this, and my heart just hurts for this family. What a vicious disease. Expect David to do yet another round of inpatient.

This is Dennis Rodman and a
famewhore on the red carpet at the after party of Jessica Simpson’s new swimsuit line debut.
It’s a well-known mantra in the fashion world: if you can’t get Anna Wintour there, get Dennis Rodman.
What does he even do these days? Does he still play basketball? Is this really the level to which he must stoop in order to get anyone to write anything about him? Sad, Mr. Rodman. Very sad.
Also, is that a tranny?
