And let's not blame him for "cashing in on their addictions," either, since the celebrities on his show are also getting paid. So you could say they're cashing in on THEIR OWN addictions, if you think about it. Either way, it's a rough thing to go through, and I wish them all the best of luck.

P.S. I've had my own substance issues, so I know more about the subject than I like to admit... but luckily it wasn't anything I couldn't handle on my own.

It's official, he passed away today... RIP Jeff.

Not exactly CNN, but People is usually a reliable source (not to mention, IMDB & Wikipedia already listed his death date): Taxi and Grease Star Jeff Conaway Dies : People.com
