Columbus Short was once one of the bright and shinning stars of Hollywood.  A smooth cool and laid back demeanor, with a flashy smile that would drive the women wild.  He had a prime role on the Kerry Washington drama, "Scandal."  He had a beautiful wife, lovely daughter and a seven figure salary, what could go wrong.  Well for starters Mr. ladies man himself pulled a knife on his wife and threatened to kill her.  Tried to skip out on a court case that cost him close to $20, 000 a month in spousal support, and he soon after lost his seven figure job on Scandal.

However, fate smiled on Mr. Short because not even a month later he was picked up for a new show of his own and with a great paycheck.  Life was going great until he was recently arrested for drunken behavior. After being booked again, a much calmer and sober Short began revealing the reason for all his failures... liquor. He admitted that he has a drinking problem, and he is trying to quit and trying to get his life back on track, but he needs time.  This time I believe him, because the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
