"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.

Heartbreaking. Joey's defeat, this story, the hateful comments. Would have been nice if someone had considered Joey's friends and family before releasing the unnecessary details. RIP Joey.

No sympathy for the dude. Sorry. And looking at her I know why he needed the Viagra.
Lets thin the herd of these reality star douche bags. Maybe after a while the producers "might" get that they are contributing to these unfortunate deaths.
THIS INCLUDES YOU, DOCTOR(?) DREW!

That thermostat she has is not very energy efficient. It should be replaced with a more accurate digital one.

So she made some money? Everybody else would do the same thing. Who cares that some junkie piece of garbage OD'd. I'd make some money off his dead ass if I could too.

He starred in season 3 of celebrity rehab but the family is shocked, shocked that his death had anything to do with drugs? Does the family think the show was about celebrities going around rehabilitating old houses for the homeless?

He should have ran when he saw that crack head quote on the wall. Should say "all you need is trust, faith and a little crack." I agree with other posters she is going to hell for selling these pictures. So sad that someone's life ends so pathetic.

I think it's a great story, kids need to see what it does
to you, even though, no offense, I believe people here are more in their 40s and up...
By the way, when you've been taking cc too long you can't lift it up anymore. When I was 20 a girlfriend of mine was enduring this with some wall street cokehead. That explains the viagra.
