    I hate to bring in the blues on their engagement, but I was under the impression AJ McLean went to rehab for his addiction to drugs and alcohol, yet I see in the pictures that he is sipping on champagne. I understand for all we know he could be dipping on a non-alcoholic beverage – if I am wrong then I stand corrected. With that said… Congrats to the happy couple!
