Corey Haim Approached by 'Celebrity Rehab'

3/10/2010 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim was approached in the last 10 days by the casting company for "Celebrity Rehab" ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Dr. Drew's show tell us casting producers called Corey. They say he was "extremely defensive and insulted, saying, 'It's the last show I'd ever do.'"

Our sources say the 3-minute conversation ended with Corey saying, "I do not need help."

We're also told the casting producers spoke with Corey's mom last October at an autograph convention, pitching the show.

Are you Dr Drews press agent by any chance? (PS - liked the OCD multiple posts by the way)

I'd say that a recovering addict would have a lot more to add to the debate than someone like Drew who is basically exploiting addicts to make his living.

Dr Drew is a ghoul, who is majorly pissed right now that he couldnt exploit Haim while he was alive. Still, death is no impediment when you're Dr Drew it seems... he's all over that corpse like a horny necrophile!

Higher truths    

Celebrity abusive and predatory. No dignity for human life and struggles. Its like celebs gaining weight( k-Fed) so they can make some money shedding weight on a staged reality show.

Celebrity rehab, what a breach of HIPPA laws and doctor patient confidientality.

As for Haim let him rest in peace. you didn't know him so shuddup.
