Dr. Drew

Still On Call for "Celebrity Rehab"

10/14/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Drew PinskyDr. Drew Pinsky hasn't permanently checked out of "Celebrity Rehab" -- the show is currently on hold ... but TMZ has learned, VH1 is keeping Drew on deck for a possible reboot.

As we first reported -- VH1 is taking a break from "Celebrity Rehab" while producers ponder a new show centered around struggling celebrity couples. In the meantime, Dr. Drew is busy with two other TV shows -- a daytime program on CW and another show on HLN.

Howard Lapides -- Dr. Drew's longtime manager and producing partner -- tells us, Drew's exit from "Rehab" is merely a "timing issue."

Howard adds, Drew's still in talks about rejoining the show -- "No doors are closed."

I wish I wan't first on this one, Dr Drew is worse than Dr Phil, he is a TV Dr who is addicted to seeing himself on TV, how many shows does he need to be on? Also how many of his celebrity rehab patients have died now, is it two? your doing a great job there Doc

"timing issue"- all past celebrity patients have died of drug overdoses. They are waiting on a new crop of drug addicted/ attention whore losers to experiment on.

I would actually watch the show if Drew left and Bob took over. Drew is not a person in recovery...Bob is. Dr. Drew feigns that look of concern only when the camera is on him. Bob is the real deal.
To really make it real, forget the makeup artists/hair dressers. Let's see the REAL DEAL!!!

The problem with the show is that's it's poorly produced.
It's edited for manipulation, when it should be more like a do***entary.
What do you expect from the network that gives us k-r-a-p like Jersey Shore?

Let Bob Forrest host Rehab. It'd be better.

This guy sold out a long time ago. Show him a pile of money to do his circus act and he'll be there.

Maybe it's because there are about as many 'celebrities' on that show as there are 'stars' on DWTS. ZERO.
