Mindy McCready Is The Fifth Celebrity Rehab Star To Die

I don't know if it proves anything--maybe that celebrity addictions are even harder to cure than private citizens'--but in any case she joins the sad bunch that includes:

Rodney King

Mike Starr

Joey Kovar

Jeff Conaway


It's sad to be a fame-challenged star with a substance problem.

Maybe rehab-for-ratings isn't always the best way to go?

I notice they dropped the word Celebrity from the latest version -- the contestants were regular folks. I wonder what the real reason was -- money? (The celebrities were paid actual cash for their participation.) Or maybe the last of the hardcore celebrity basket cases have already died off -- they had actually started repeating some of the stars anyway.

Aside from being a Fame Whore, just what good has "Doctor" Drew done for those under his care?  I think Money is his drug of choice and the hell with everyone else.

It's probably helped them get a little fame back, but that doesn't necessarily help their health problems.

Has the celebrity rehab show really helped anyone? I'd be curious to know.

(Since his early days with Love Line here on LA radio, almost 30 yrs ago, Dr Drew has turned into quite the fame whore.)

So sad. But I don't blame Dr. Drew.
