Kayla and Dr. Drew on '16 and Pregnant'Tuesday's season finale of '16 and Pregnant' (Tuesdays, 10pm on MTV) took a look back at some of the young girls and their families from season three, including an emotional interview with Kayla and her mother. Kayla said her mother neglected her, paying more attention to her boyfriend and ignoring her during her time of need.

"There was a point where she moved away from all of us kids, and that was hard," said Kayla. "It was so easy for her to pick up and leave." Kayla also said her mother left her in the apartment with no heat while she spent the night with her boyfriend, telling Kayla to get a hotel.

Adam Carolla: Dr. Drew Was My Inspiration for 'In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks' (VIDEO)

Sharon Osbourne and Adam Carolla on 'The Talk'Adam Carolla thinks men are getting too soft. That's why he wrote his book of humorous essays, 'In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks ... And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy.' But there's one man in particular Carolla thinks needs saving from his softer side, he revealed Thursday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). And that's his 'Loveline' co-host, Dr. Drew Pinsky, whom Carolla said was the inspiration for him to write the book.

The inspiration comes from a single incident, when Pinsky showed up ten minutes late for 'Loveline' one night because he'd had a flat tire. He had to wait for AAA to come fix it, Pinsky had explained. What shocked Carolla was that Pinsky had gotten the flat in his own garage. "I said, 'You called AAA to come to your house, to your heated garage and change your tire?'" Carolla remembered incredulously. That, he said, is when he knew it was over.

On '16 and Pregnant,' Ashley Is Reunited With the Baby That She Gave Away (VIDEO)

On '16 and Pregnant,'  Ashley Is Reunited With the Baby That She Gave Away When you're pregnant and have just entered your teenage years, all choices must seem like hard choices. And on '16 and Pregnant,' high school senior Ashley Salazar has to deal with the consequences of her choice.

Ashley lives in a suburb of Dallas, Texas. She has dreams of moving to Manhattan and becoming a photojournalist. But those dreams changed, once Ashley became pregnant at sixteen. Justin, her ex-boyfriend, didn't stick around -- so Ashley made the hard decision to give up her daughter Callie for adoption.

On the new episode (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV), Ashley got to hold her daughter for the first time in months. After giving birth, Ashley gave up Callie, letting her aunt and uncle care for the child. She went on to pursue her dreams of attending college in New York City. But did Ashley make the right choice? And was there ever a one hundred percent "right" choice for the teen to make?

Dr. Drew Has a Message for 'The Soup's' Joel McHale (VIDEO)

Dr. Drew Has a Message for Joel McHaleJoel McHale continually makes fun of Dr. Drew's shows on 'The Soup.' But on Monday, Dr. Drew appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) to let McHale know that there's no hard feelings on his end.

Williams herself has a long-standing friendly rivalry with McHale. And perhaps not coincidentally, McHale makes fun of her show all the time. Anyway, Dr. Drew and Williams teamed to deliver an on-screen message to McHale. The message doesn't make that much sense, and Williams refers to "the flies" for some reason, then laughs manically. To be honest, we don't totally understand. But it's all good fun. We're just excited that McHale will be able to joke about the clip on 'The Soup.'

Watch the video after the jump.

Dr. Drew Could Have Helped Corey Haim, Says Dr. Drew

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 11th 2010 5:09PM
Corey HaimNot sure which TV doctor/psychologist/superhero has a bigger ego, Dr. Drew or Dr. Phil, but this week I'm going with the former. Dr. Drew Pinsky says that he and people from his show 'Celebrity Rehab' reached out to Corey Haim several times over the past few years and every time Haim angrily rejected their pleas for him to be on the show, saying that he didn't need help.

Now, beyond the fact that Dr. Drew is assuming that Haim died of a drug overdose before autopsy results are even complete*, I think he doesn't quite understand (or maybe he does and doesn't care) how much of an exploitative guy he is. So Haim didn't want to appear on your show where you get celebrities to look awful while they live in a house and try to break their addictions? Is that surprising? If I was an addict I wouldn't want to do that show either.

TV's Dr. Drew saves a dying high school football player

Dr. Drew saves a football player's life in California.On TV, Dr. Drew Pinsky saves people from drugs and sex. But, the Celebrity Rehab host came out of the stands at California high school football game last weekend to save the life of a dying player.

Pinsky was watching his son Doug play football at Pasadena Polytechnic when a Poly player took a shot to the head. I played football for years, and these things happen. There's no indication that malice was involved in the related hit.

The injured player, Jackson Allan, came off the field and headed to the bench to talk to his coaching staff and teammates. But, as is often the case with concussions and other head injuries, the brain can be deceptive. The condition quickly grew more serious, and paramedics were called.

But, Pinsky got there first to find Allan in a coma -- no longer breathing.

Dr. Drew sends addicted viewers to Sex Rehab on VH1

Dr. Drew with take on sexual addition in VH1's Sex Rehab.Dr. Drew is taking on a sexier addiction, literally.

His new VH1 show, the unfortunately titled Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew (Is the title theme Motley Crue's' "Dr. Feel Good?") will take on celebrity sex addiction.

Addiction to alcohol and drugs, or eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, are already familiar topics on reality TV. But the VH1 release announcing the new show reports that sex addiction is equally common -- yet harder to identify and more difficult for some to accept.

Think about it. How many comedians would make some crack along the lines of, "Where do I sign up? For the disease, not the cure."

Lindsay Lohan to visit Dr. Drew?

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 10th 2009 1:01PM
Lindsay LohanShe's been criticized on and thrown off movie and television sets. She did a mock-ad on eHarmony. She's gone through a lot of pain (mostly self-induced), but Lindsay Lohan hasn't quite bounced back yet. Perhaps she should appear on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew like her father suggests.

It says something about her father that he would suggest going on television to solve her problems. Hasn't he noticed how television has treated his family?

Lohan is doing the smart thing by avoiding the spotlight as she works through her issues. Going on Dr. Drew is akin to Dr. Phil's sad attempt at helping Britney Spears with her issues a little while back. It's easy to tell what Pinsky is actually after when his initial attempt at contact was through Parade Magazine.

On the other hand, the acquisition of Lohan would be a ratings bonanza for VH1. I can just imagine Lohan having one of those inscrutable Jeff Conaway moments.
