Downey relapsed once again and the spiral continued.
He attempted a comeback on Ally McBeal , but was then arrested again, and again. The Fallout: By the mids, Downey had sobered up and thus started his ascent to superstardom in Hollywood. Given how good he was acting and looking, the world knew that the supremely talented actor was back.
Scoring the lead role in Iron Man in changed everything. Can you imagine the billion-dollar Marvel Studios existing without Downey nailing that first Iron Man role? The show went on, albeit with a messy set, and Ice proceeded to go back into obscurity… before reinventing himself as a DIY superstar on various home improvement networks.
Of particular joy are the segments where they gut a house before rebuilding it. Ice is really good at that part. She was in Fresno— four hours by car from Los Angeles! She was found disoriented and confused as to where she had landed.
It was believed that she was on drugs. She has since gone on to have quite a full career, most recently starring in Chicago PD. She was married briefly to Coleman Laffoon , and they have one child. By the time her visit was over, she had made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Carey then checked herself into rehab for exhaustion. So, what happened during the fateful visit? She muttered something about rainbows, started to strip off her clothes, and then passed out popsicles to an excited— yet confused— audience including host Carson Daly.
This entire episode was not planned by her publicist or the movie studio publicity team. Carey was on her own with ice cream cart idea. Then she proceeded to read a love letter to Daly from her mother. It just got weirder as the minutes went on. Fallout: After getting help for exhaustion, she has worked hard to get back.
In fact, from a music critic review standpoint, Carey put out her best album of the century in November. There were also a ton of paparazzi present. How would the King of Pop "thrill" those gathered below? He dangled his baby, son Prince Michael II , over the balcony. Hearing the collective gasps of the crowd below, he pulled him back into his arms and went into his room.
The Fallout: This was just another spoke in the wheel for the public believing that Jackson was losing it— both professionally and personally. He would spend years defending the move, but other things would eclipse this when it comes to his legacy, most notably his dying from a drug overdose in The world was shocked.
Why would an actress who has all the money in the world resort to shoplifting? She immediately went into hiding emerging only for her trial. Fallout: She was convicted of felony grand theft and vandalism, but was acquitted for the burglary charge.
Ryder escaped jail time, but was given probation, fined and ordered to do community service. She also was required to have drug and psychological counseling.

Perhaps he read the room wrong. Maybe love makes you crazy. Either way, when asked about his relationship with Katie Holmes , Cruise proceeded to stand up on the couch and then jump up and down repeatedly extolling the virtues of being in love.
The audience may have thought it was awesome, but home viewers got completely spooked. His public image took a hit. Cruise came off as slightly unstable and just… odd. The Fallout: Somehow, he has persevered, and his star seems to be shining brighter with each passing year. Proof of that arrived with Mission Impossible: Fallout. The actor, in town to promote a film, had a fit at the front desk and threw a phone at the clerk, hitting them in the eye.
The Fallout: He was charged with assault in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon—yes, a telephone. The Oscar winner pled guilty and the judge slapped him with a conditional discharge, which basically means he cannot be arrested again.

Still, he is not the heavyweight he once. The Fallout: Richards has not been cast in much since then beyond a few minor supporting roles on Kirstie and in Curb Your Enthusiasm , where he played himself. Full career recovery is unlikely. Where: All over the world. The Meltdown: The thing about Lindsay Lohan and her celebrity meltdown is that is has been long coming and shows no signs of slowing down. Back in January , she was on top of the world as one of the most well-known actresses of her generation. Then, she got arrested for drunk driving and possession of cocaine.
She headed to rehab. When she got out, she looked ready to rock. That was so not the case. Lohan returned to rehab in May. By October , the court system was getting involved. Since she missed so many alcohol education classes, Lohan was ordered to endure probation for another year. No one can educate me about alcohol. Her fame meter kept its slow and steady fall. In October of , she had a meltdown on Instagram in front of her six million followers.
She was accused of trying to take refugee children away from their parents. According to her, the parents were pushing their kids into child trafficking. The video has since been deleted. The Fallout: Is still being determined, especially with this latest Instagram scandal. Her career has long past its expiration date. For many, their daughter is not usually there filming it. That is exactly what happened to Baywatch legend David Hasselhoff back in , who was as drunk as could be and was a little hungry, so, he got some burgers and brought them to his Las Vegas home.
He then sloppily ate said burgers in the bathroom while falling over into his food, wearing nothing but a pair of blue jeans. His year-old daughter Taylor is heard begging him to grow up on the video.
Fascinatingly, Hasselhoff had asked his kids to film him if he ever falls off the wagon.
