America's diplomat in chief to North Korea is out of commission for a while: Dennis Rodman, most recently known for cozying up to murderous baby-faced dictators and drunkenly melting down on CNN, has checked into rehab for alcoholism. He'll spend 30 days at a facility in New Jersey. The former basketball star is "beyond exhausted and overwhelmed," sources tell TMZ.
