"I told you the other day, if this continues, we can't carry on," David tells Andy bluntly, referring to the comedian's well-documented struggles with alcohol and drugs. "And if you decide to leave and not do that, I'm afraid that we can't carry on here together."
Andy does decide to go to rehab, and is visibly emotional hugging the cast and crew.

VH1 has no current plans for 2012 editions of its hit show Celebrity Rehab, or its spin-off Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House, though both could return at some point.
Last year, the shows drew criticism following the death of two former cast members. Actor Jeff Conaway, who appeared in season 2 of the flagship program, died of complications from taking prescription medications. Season 3 participant, Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, died after mixing Xanax and alcohol. The events prompted a surge of criticism about the show, where stars try
Police reportedly found Starr's body in a Salt Lake City home after being called to the house Tuesday (March 7) afternoon.
Starr's struggle with addiction to a range of drugs -- heroin, methadone, crystal meth, cocaine and pot -- was chronicled on both "Celebrity Rehab" and "Sober House," where he shared space with fellow in-recovery addicts Heidi Fleiss, Tom Sizemore and Dennis Rodman.
One topic Starr returned to again and again in treatment as a continuing source of pain was the 2002 death of Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley. And although he had a difficult time staying clean, he appeared to ultimately prevail over his addictions, returning in a season 4 episode to talk about his triumph.
Six years in the making, this documentary film follows his life-threatening struggle with addiction, to his transformation into one of the most influential and controversial drug counselors in the Us today. Bob And The Monster crafts contemporary footage, animation and compelling interviews with archival performances and personal videos from Bob’s past to reveal the complex layers of this troubled, but hopeful soul. Testimony from his peers, including Courtney Love, Anthony Kiedis and Flea add texture, but it’s the depth of Bob’s music, interwoven throughout the film, that illuminates this unforgettable and inspirational story.

According to an explosive post Dr. Drew Pinsky wrote for the Huffington Post, superstar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are speeding ahead into”some sort of meltdown”! “There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict,’” the “Celebrity Rehab” host says of Angelina, who has admitted to using ‘every drug possible. Coke, heroin, ecstasy, everything.’ “That doesn’t exist in nature,” Dr. Drew continues. “Something is going on with [her] addiction. Or she’s in recovery. And I don’t see any evidence that that’s the case.”
Brad and Angelina famously got together on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2003, while Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston (the couple announced their
The sportsman-turned-reality-tv-star battled his addictions in front of millions as part of U.S. TV shows Celebrity Rehab and Sober House - but numerous reports suggest he's continuing to drink.
Rodman was recently spotted at a rum-tasting festival at Miami, Florida hotspot hotel The Raleigh, according to the New York Post.
However, his spokesperson insists the star is still able to drink following his public attempts to recover.
The rep says, "Dennis still has a few drinks here and there. Stopping his drinking has always been a gradual process."
