Former NBA player and Mr. Potato Head lookalike Dennis Rodman on CNN’s “New Day” Friday:

My job is to do one thing and that is to be a professional entertainer and human being on this planet to entertain people and keep people happy and keep people strong and keep people’s spirits uplifting. I think I’ve done a great job at that.

But I think that, for me, the reason I drink is because I’m bored.

Rodman was admitted to rehab in mid January.
