“Celebrity Rehab” Cancelled?
The current season of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab could be the last for celebrity addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky.
The Celebreality Network has decided to put the hit docu-soap on “indefinite hiatus” after Dr. Drew decided to step down as host due to his busy schedule. In addition to his newly-launched HLN series, The Dr. Drew Show, Pinsky recently sold a new show — titled Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers — to The CW. Drew also host the nightly sex/relationship radio program Loveline.
“The amount of time Dr. Drew has to commit to treating celebrities on the show is a tremendous amount of time… Dr. Drew really enjoyed doing the show, even though it could be very emotionally grueling at times,” a production insider tells RadarOnline.
Celebrity Rehab is currently in its fifth season: Michael Lohan, Sean Young, and Bai Ling are among the “celebs” seeking Drew’s expertise on addiction.
