I hope Salahi is proud of herself. I'll bet they could've found a spot for Mike again if she hadn't pulled her stunt.

R.I.P. Mike, you fell down, gave it try to get back up. At least you tried. My heart is out to his family.

Overcome an addiction regardless of what it is, it's about "mind over matter".
When he went to Celebrity Rehab, he wasn't ready to quite drugs... Poor guy.
Condolences to his family.

NOOOOO!! I was so rooting for Mike to make a successful turn to sobriety. He was my favorite on Celebrity rehab. I am very upset about this horrible news. I truly thought he was doing better and working on getting clean. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. Such a sad day...

This is so sad but we all saw it coming. This guy was a tortured soul. He never made peace with Layne's death. RIP Mike.

Not to worry. Dr. Drew Pinsky (addiction specialist) is still making his money.

Pinsky sold his ethics as a Dr. for a TV show.

I watched the show and feel so bad for him for all of the guilt and the terrible way his father did drugs with him.
Thought he was going to make it.
