Robin Roberts is taking on some night work as a guest judge on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

A judge has sentenced 1970s teen heartthrob David Cassidy to three months in rehab and five years of probation in a drunken driving case.
Cassidy’s attorney, Steven Graff Levine, entered an open plea to a Los Angeles judge Monday, admitting that he was driving under the influence when he was arrested in January.
Levine says Cassidy has been in rehab and will remain for longer than his sentence requires.
