On Tuesday, EJNYC star Drew McNamara checked into rehab for prescription drug and alcohol abuse. With support from his parents and co-stars, the reality TV personality is currently at Promises in Malibu, CA and will stay at the facility for at least 30 days.

According to spokesperson Jonathan Stinson:

"Drew called me Sunday letting me know he will be in the care of Promises Malibu for detox and then moved to Promises West LA after a week for the remainder of his 30 days of treatment. He checked in Tuesday nervous but happy to get the help he needs. Drew went willingly and is excited to focus on his music and upcoming album with a clear head post-treatment."

The child's teenage aunt was walking him through a crosswalk in his stroller when they were hit by the 72-year-old, who attempted to flee the scene.

And, even after the terrible tragedy made the athlete's son brain dead, the sports star told CBS Los Angeles on Tuesday that he isn't harboring any hatred for the woman who took his baby's life, saying:

"I've always said, 'If someone takes from me, I take back.' And I'm really surprised actually that I don't feel any rage. I haven't felt any rage. I don't feel any hatred."

He also recalled the chilling moment his little one was struck, adding:

"There's footage showing [Liam's aunt] pressed the button for the crosswalk, but this lady didn't brake."

On Sunday, the fighter took Liam off life support. Marcus stayed at the hospital with his baby until Tuesday, when he finally said goodbye.

He posted this heart-wrenching picture to Instagram, as he held his son's hand for the last time:

Wow, Elizabeth Vargas went through A LOT.

In a snippet from Vargas' new memoir Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction, the 20/20 star opened up on her decades long battle with alcoholism.

While there are plenty of disturbing memories in the brave book, the Daily Mail obtained a particularly scary passage depicting a moment when Vargas got blacked out in a public park following a late-MORNING interview for 20/20 in July of 2012.

According to the mother of two, that morning she downed a bottle of wine to compensate for a terrible hangover. Upon leaving the office, she somehow ended up in a park incoherent and with "two sketchy guys" circling her.

Luckily for the news anchor, a good samaritan saved her from the terrible situation. Apparently the journalist managed to give her address to the concerned civilian before passing out.

In a follow-up interview with People Magazine, the 54-year-old went on to describe the aftermath in heartbreaking detail:
