Former DWTS Contestant Andy Dick Escorted from Ballroom During Finale
Long before one of the three finalists was eliminated during Tuesday night's finale of Dancing with the Stars, another celebrity found himself getting the boot from the ballroom. Season 16 competitor Andy Dick, 48, arrived at the finale with a guest and seemed to be acting erratically, reeking of smoke and exhibiting eyebrow-raising behavior. He was running in and out of the ballroom every five minutes, saying, "I have to pee!" Within the hour, he had lunged at a production staffer's breast. One observer tells People that four security guards stepped in quickly and they "told him he had to go, and he said,

Watch Andy Dick's Live Intervention
Troubled comedian Andy Dick's Internet television show Andy Dick Live! turned into a real-life episode of A&E's TV's Intervention recently, when his friends and boss staged an on-air intervention, prompting his return to rehab.

In this video posted by Celebuzz, his boss Alki David (the CEO of FilmOn, the web-based network which airs Andy's program) candidly tells him, "Everybody knows you've been going through your trials and tribulations," before introducing Jim Antonowitsch, the founder of Oasis Treatment Center in Anaheim, California.

"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 Letting Celebrity Rehab Dry Out in 2012

VH1 Letting Celebrity Rehab Dry Out in 2012
Hope you weren't jonesing for a Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew fix this year. VH1 has no plans for a new season of the show, or its 2-year-old spinoff Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House, in 2012, the network has confirmed. Which makes sense, considering that the audience for the fifth-season finale in September dwindled to a mere 510,000 viewers, or half the audience that tuned in for the season-four finale. But though Drew Pinsky is down, he's not out. A rep for VH1 says that the two Celebrity Rehab series have not been canceled, just put on hold due to scheduling issues while Pinsky focuses on his CW show, Lifechangers. But some breathing room can't hurt...

VH1 comes to its senses and benches Celebrity Rehab

Did you start the morning feeling slightly more hopeful for humanity? I did, but only because I read the news that VH1 has taken Celebrity Rehab off its schedule for the foreseeable future. If you've never seen Celebrity Rehab, know that it is perhaps the lowest of the reality TV low. Lower than Temptation Island. Lower than The Swan. Lower than Animal Hoarders, though probably just barely. If you think watching Jersey Shore is troubling because you're pretty sure the cast members need help, imagine what it's like to know they need help, and yet you're watching them get treated by the doctor from Loveline when they're not cracking wise with Heidi Fleiss and the drummer from Guns N' Roses. The show was a success for the station — it even had a spin-off, Sober House — and completed its fifth season this summer. Unfortunately, 2011 also [...]

VH1's controversial 'Celebrity Rehab' benched (for now...)

VH1's controversial 'Celebrity Rehab' benched (for now...)
Dr. Drew’s VH1 drug rehab facility is closed — at least for now.

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

Mike Starr, 'Celebrity Rehab' alum, dead -- report

  • Pop2it
Mike Starr, the former bassist for '90s-era grunge rockers "Alice in Chains" who was more recently seen on season three of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," is dead, according to TMZ.

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.

Andy Dick Harasses Tera Patrick, Drag Queen, Thrown Out Of Avn Awards

  • VH1.com
Looks like Andy Dick’s 2011 won’t be any better than his 2010. Almost a year after the comedian’s arrest for groping a bartender in West Virginia, Andy Dick was kicked out of the annual Avn Awards in Vegas this weekend after harassing porn star Tera Patrick and drag queen ChiChi Rodriguez in a dressing room. “”You couldn’t understand what he was saying, but you could hear Chi Chi saying, ‘Leave me alone!’” a witness told Page Six. “Tera grabbed Chi Chi and went into another dressing room, but boom, there he was again. This happened three or four more times. He had a cup of beer, which kept spilling. Finally, this huge security guy came over, snatched the beer out of his hand, and said, ‘That’s it, we’re going!’” Judging from our 2011 Avn Awards red carpet gallery, there was still plenty to be entertained by after he left.

Brad & Angelina Headed For A “Nuclear Breakup!” Says Dr. Drew! You Agree?

Brad and Angelina cover your ears. Dr. Drew is Not holding back when it comes to his thoughts about you — he thinks your relationship is going to end in disaster! Here’s Why.

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

Dr. Drew To Host Prime Hour On Hln: So Who’s Out?

Hln announced this morning that Dr. Drew Pinsky, longtime call-in host of radio's Loveline, and a frequent contributor to television discussions on addiction (Dr. Drew's also hosted Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, Sober House and Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew) would join the Hln prime lineup in Spring 2011. Glaringly left out of the announcement was an indication of where in Hln prime lineup Dr. Drew would be taking his perch--and who might be getting bumped. “Dr. Drew informs and inspires audiences on subjects that matter most to them and their families, and he is an ideal fit for the Hln network,” said Scot Safon, executive vice president in charge of Hln. “Whether the topics are in the news or simply in the daily lives of our audience, Dr. Drew will shed light, provide crucial information and give viewers something to talk—and think--about.”

Rodman's Rep Downplays Alcohol Relapse

Rodman's Rep Downplays Alcohol Relapse
Former basketball star Dennis Rodman's spokesperson has stepped out in defense of the recovering alcoholic amid reports he's relapsed - insisting his recovery has been "a gradual process".

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."
