Executive summary: Wiseguy

Admitted his problems with alcohol on Entertainment Tonight in a 1997 appearance. When asked if he was an alcoholic, his response was "I don't think I am. I know I am." After an incident at a Beverly Hills hotel bar, in March of that year he was sentenced to a court-mandated alcohol live-in treatment center. The actor claimed that vodka is the only thing that dilutes the pain from a 1992 motorcycle accident.

In 2003 the Barbi Twins filed suit against Hustler publisher Larry Flynt to stop publication of photos of "intimate sexual acts between the twin sisters" which were taken by Ken Wahl, who is married to Barbi Twin Shane. This revelation in the lawsuit apparently contradicts an earlier statement made in 2001 by the twins that they had experimented with lesbianism but not with each other. Unspecified damages were sought. (Associated Press, 13 November 2003)
