"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.

With that stupid hairdo, I think he died of embarrassment. Oh well, another jerkoff junkie bites the dust.

It is so sad to see yet another young person die from mixing lethal amounts of drugs, prescription or otherwise. But, to think about charging Stacey with a crime is just ridiculous. Joey did this to himself, sad but true.

It's a tragedy to die so young, but he was a loser. I can't feel bad for anyone who does shyte like that to his body to that extent. And this guy had multiple opportunities for help from real professionals. Damn, he even got paid to get help on Celeb Rehab and couldn't get his **** together. That is a loser and he obviously did not want to live. I don't feel bad for people like this who die, I feel bad for the children who get cancer and die, the responsible adults who get cancer or die in a car wreck. You get the picture. And sadly, there are too many innocent people out there that do die. Not this guy. He didn't cherish his life, so I don't cherish his life either.

PROOF THAT CELEBRITY REHAB WITH DR. DREW DOESN'T WORK, ITS ALL FOR SHOW AND A MEANS TO DISPLAY THE DOWNFALL OF FAME WITH ADDICTION AND NOT ENOUGH ON THE TREATMENT ITSELF. NOT TO MENTION, ITS A VERY SHORT STINT FOR THEM TO TRY AND GET HELP THERE.

GRANTED IT IS UP TO THE CELEBRITY THEMSELVES TO GET THE HELP, WHEN THEY ARE THIS HELPLESS, THEY BECOME A DANGER TO THEMSELVES WHICH IS CAUSE TO BRING THEM INTO CUSTODY AND FORCE THE CARE NEEDED TO REGULATE THEM BACK INTO A MORE SOUND MINDSET TO APPROPRIATELY COMBAT THIS TERRIBLE MENTAL ANGUISH OF ADDICTION.

LOOK AT HOW MANY HAVE DIED FROM CELEB REHAB AND THE LACK OF ITS SUCCESS OR ARE OFTEN CLOSE TO IT THUS FAR:

-Jeff Conaway
-Mike Starr
-Joey Kovar
-Rodney King
-Steven Alder
-Seth Binzter (almost 3x for sure on his way)(coma last time)
-Tom Sizemore (on his way for sure)
-Brigitte Nielsen (off the wagon-on her way)
-Dennis Rodman (on his way for sure)
-Mindy Mc Cready (on her way)
-Eric Roberts (for sure on his way)
-Sean Young (on her way)
-Michael Lohan (totally there)

She was probably his dealer and had been giving her sex for drugs. There is no other reason he would have sex with that disgusting looking woman. It is so sad. RIP Joey.

In my opinion, Dr. Drew is a fraud. He is a TV doctor. At least three people have died of drug overdoses who have been on celeb rehab. Jeff Conaway, Mike Starr and Joey. Plus another who went into a coma from drugs. Some others were arrested for drug possession after they were on the show. Celeb rehab is all for ratings and money, not to get these people clean and sober. I wish he would be taken off tv!
