Topic: Dr. Drew Pinsky
The Real World created the genre of voyeurism-as-entertainment and Big Brother took it to its logical extreme — but I would argue there’s never been a television program more sickeningly voyeuristic than Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. The behind-the-scenes look at addiction and recovery boasts five seasons and a spin-off, Sober House, and last night VH1 premiered its new offering in the franchise, Celebrity Rehab Revisited. More
Can you believe next week is the season finale of 16 and Pregnant? There will be only ten total episodes this season, and then Teen Mom is back on July 5. So last night we got a double feature: Taylor Lumas‘ episode, and then a special 40-minute “Unseen Moments Special” hosted by – of course – Dr. Drew Pinsky. I tend to think that these missing clips shows are determined in part by viewer feedback or aim to answer questions people have asked about the show, and this episode definitely validates that. But mostly it shows clips of Izabella, Taylor, and the girl from next week who we haven’t even met yet. More
Yesterday, Loveline hosts Dr. Drew — also famous for his time counseling addicted stars on Celebrity Rehab — and “Psycho” Mike Catherwood took to Reddit to do an AMA thread. They were the first celebrity AMA participants since the Emilia Clarke thread was revealed to be a hoax last week, and surprisingly they suffered no repercussions for that fakery. (Probably because they immediately verified their identities with this photo on the left.) More
This special basically exists for two reasons:
1) To continue milking the cow that is this show and its ratings; and
2) To address viewer questions about why the show focuses so much on the girls’ romantic relationships instead of all the day to day duties of raising a kid.
So, head famewhore Dr. Drew is back to guide us through the segments. More
The Teen Mom 2 reunion was fairly disappointing – it was fun to see everyone again and see how orange they all were, and there were a couple of interesting followups, but for the most part it was rehashed lameness from the season and Dr. Drew asking softball questions. Here are five people I would have liked to have seen at the reunion: More
Although this reunion show is ostensibly about the four teen moms and their loved ones, it’s really about one person: Dr. Drew. He does a passable job in this reunion, but he’s more interested in getting the girls to cry than he is in delving more than a centimeter deep into their issues. The show opens with Leah, the one teen mom from this season that anyone really likes, and ends with Jenelle, whose drama made the season interesting. More
Although MTV isn’t airing the Teen Mom 2 reunion until next week, there’s a sneak preview clip up on their site. In the clip, a newly blonde Chelsea Houska sits between dad Randy Houska and ex-boyfriend/baby daddy Adam Lind on Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s couch. As usual, Chelsea lets Randy and Adam have it out while she just sits there crying and complaining about being stuck in the middle. More
Dr. Drew Pinsky has never met a media outlet he didn’t like. He never misses a chance to go on TV pontificating about the real or hypothetical addictions of celebrities. He has weighed in on everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Angelina Jolie, so the only question about his upcoming special Vh1 News Presents: Charlie Sheen: Winning … Or Losing It? should be “How did it take this long?” (Okay, maybe one more question, which is “Why does anyone ever think double colons are a good idea?)
