News like this always comes as a shock initially but then knowing the backstory and it's actually amazing it hasn't happened sooner. I watched that season of Celebrity Rehab, and you could tell he was not going to kick the habit. There was no way.

Heroin is no joke. This should serve as a constant reminder how drug addiction is such a poison to somebody's life. This is one of those times when it is truly a heartfelt R.I.P. because Mike is truly at peace from his demons.

I remember catching an episode with him and he was just so resistant about getting the help he was being offered. Sad really.
