Fame is fleeting, and so is "Entourage."

The acclaimed comedy-drama rolls into its eighth and final season (10:30 p.m. EDT Sunday, HBO). Vince (Adrian Grenier) has bypassed jail time and gone to rehab to get over his drug addiction. He may be winning the battle against his demons, but one thing about Vince has not changed: He's still not the smartest cookie in the pan.

Once out of rehab, he chooses a pet project about miners that sounds like a real dog of an idea to his friends. But his entourage doesn't want to strike out at his newfound confidence, and can't find the best way to let him down easily.

Meanwhile, Eric (Kevin Connolly) is smarting from his breakup with girlfriend Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui). Eric would confide in Vince, but Vince is still angry with Eric about a pre-rehab betrayal.

Even Ari (Jeremy Piven) isn't in the best of moods, even though his star is back and off drugs. Ari's wife (Perrey Reeves) has left him and isn't ready to make a decision about where the future will take them.

Perhaps the only one of the entourage with good news is Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon). After years of living in his superstar brother's shadow, Johnny has his own hit -- a juvenile animated comedy called "Johnny's Bananas."

"Entourage" will conclude its run with eight episodes this summer. From the looks of it, the guys' careers and their love lives are starting over from scratch.

Again.

Now that's a true-life Hollywood ending.
