"Real World" star Joey Kovar died after taking what could turn out to be a lethal mixture of Viagra, cocaine and alcohol ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... Thursday night, just before midnight, Joey went to a woman's house in Chicago Ridge, Illinois, told her he'd been doing cocaine ... and asked her to drive him to a location where he could score more coke. The woman, Stacey Achterhof, rebuffed his request, and asked him to stay at her place.

We're told Joey, who was also fueled up on alcohol, took "some Viagra" and messed around with Stacey ... but they did not have sex. At some point Stacey fell asleep, and when she awakened early Friday morning she found Joey bleeding from the nose and ears.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... his eyes were also "blackened" -- something that frequently occurs when someone ODs. Law enforcement sources tell us they suspect Joey had an aneurysm.

0817_joey_kovar_death_ROOM_tmzStacey was interviewed extensively by cops on Friday. We're told she says she saw Joey take Adderall and Xanax in recent weeks -- and multiple sources close to Joey tell us although they were prescribed, he often took more than called for by doctors.

There's no indication, at this point, Stacey will be charged with a crime.

As for Joey, toxicology results will take weeks, but our law enforcement sources say they believe the results will show a fatal combo of Viagra and cocaine and alcohol.

The truth is most of these "celebrities" only go to Dr. Drew's rehab so they can get some camera time in hopes of getting a job and extending their 15 minutes of fame. If they were serious about getting help they wouldn't be seeking therapy in front of the cameras. The only thing I would blame Dr. Drew for would be having the show on the air.

This is a sad situation, clearly.

But the fact that people are commenting as "real friends" of Stacey's is laughable. If you truly cared about her you would not be on here acting like an idiot. Within days of his death his family is asking for her to sell pics of the place he died? They have no access to his body, seeing as an autopsy must be completed, but they jumped on board to selling his last night of life?! Maybe it's true but I doubt it. You see pictures of this woman before this and you can tell she is on drugs herself or seriously ill.

If she was truly worried about him why did she "mess around" with him before falling asleep? If she truly thought he was in danger she should have taken him to the ER.

I don't blame her for this in the least, he made his own path, but to defend selling pictures (as valid as someone says it is) is deplorable.

I'm sorry that the dude died, but WHO WAS HE??? I haven't watched the Real World in a decade, and didn't know it was still on tv.
With that being said, he was a young guy, what did he need with Viagra???? I thought that was for old geezers.
You know, it makes me kind of mad that people can't get legitimate medicines for actual diseases and illnesses but men can get Viagra at a moments notice to get a hard on.Men who don't need it, not that Viagra was EVER needed in the first place. It's just like men to think first about their penis.
Didn't that Jeremy Remmer guy accidentally take Viagra on an airplane recently?? How can you " accidentally" take Viagra????
Oh, and one more thing. I can tell the literacy level by Harvey's employees have gone WAAAAAY DOWN, because of how the article was put together. First they can't spell, now they can't put whole paragraphs together!!!! This article made it sound like he just went up to a stranger's apt and asked for help and she let him in. It was very disjointed and choppy. Much of what TMZ has become lately, actually.

Hate to say but the world would be a lot better off if many of these other no talent douche bags would keel over.

It's sad that this will be all he's known for when he was so much more than this. Without getting into alot of detail I had the pleasure of knowing him personally and without seeing the "drug addict" side of him. He was a very sweet guy who would give you the shirt off his back. I assumed I had more time and let my busy life get in the way of getting back in touch with him when he wrote me just days before he died. I feel sad that I wasn't able to help him in any way.......

It's really very sad. Some people just can't be helped. I remember his violent rages on the Real World - I said he would kill somebody of he didn't get "fixed". He did - himself.

How old was he? Absolutely tragic. Viagra? Celebrities and drugs....too much money, fame and no real goals or discipline.

I get that you guys give out the stories and post vid's and pic's! But How pathetic that TMZ would pay this piece of shi@ for the pictures of the "death room'...TMZ is beyond the gutter.
