Attention Celebs

VH1 Wants to Repair

Your Screwed Up Relationship

10/8/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Drew Pinsky
is officially checking out of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" ... but VH1 wants to keep rehab alive, so it's developing another show without the good doc.

Sources connected to the show tell us ... the new show will not focus on celebrity addicts, but rather troubled celebrity couples looking to fix their relationship through a therapy program ... on national television. 

We're told producers are noodling over names and one of the frontrunners is "Relationship Rehab."

As for VH1's Dr. Drew 2.0 -- the negotiations are under wraps.

Pinsky, who admits in his 2009 book, The Mirror Effect, that he scored a 16 on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (average is 18 for celebrities), and shares several traits with the "closet narcissist", asserts that he was never motivated by fame to become a media figure, but from a desire to educate the public, especially the youth, on the medical facts distorted by the media. LOL

Dr. Drew is a fraud to me. He only helps people with a fat wallet. He's only in it for the money and fame, not for the satisfaction of actually helping people.

She's baaaack    

Drew Pinsky is such a phony whore. I can't wait until news breaks of affairs or some low down and dirty thing he has done. He's so damn self righteous, he makes Dr Phil look good.

And are we supposed to forget this fame whore is an internist? Why does he keep acting like he's a shrink? Shouldn't he see a doctor for that?
