    “Celebrity Rehab†star Dr. Drew Pinsky says he’s throwing in the towel on the controversial show. There’s no doubt that it was exploitative, despite his best intentions, but Pinsky says he’s tired of taking all the heat†for every death, especially when loss of life unfortunately goes with the territory.

    CBS News reports that after Mindy McCready died by suicide in February — the fifth person on the show to die — Pinksy said he’d had enough of the attacks.

    “These are really sick people, that’s why they die,†he told a radio show. “It’s sad that we’re not doing more shows because people really did get help. A lot of people are sober because of ‘Celebrity Rehab.’â€

    I don't think TV is the best way to do Rehab and most of those people were there just for the paycheck but some did want help and did get help and are doing well. Any rehab is going to have successes and failures. Steve O credits doctor Drew with helping him a lot.
    Yeah Robin will be all over how she was all over this and whatever. Ugh

    The irony is, I quit watching because not enough of them were dying.

    I think he should do one more season with Lindsey Lohan. It would be a public service if he could kill off that skank once and for all.

    If Robin brings up all the people Dr Drew supposedly killed, some caller should bring up Dana Plato, Anna Nicole Smith, the ZooKeppers Wife, and Hank the Dwarf.

    It was imperfect treatment for sure, but it was still treatment.......................and none of them could have afforded it otherwise.

    I like Dr. Drew. Him pointing out the 34 has cemented his "bro" status with me. :up:

    What the fuck do I care if he exploited some washed up, d-list celebs to make a name for himself and some $$$ while he tried to help them get sober?

    We've all laughed at much, much worse exploitation from Howard and Co.

    I don't understand the hypocrisy.....................or is it "evolution"?
