Claiming that Fisher's dishonesty and unwillingness to share with the group was holding everyone back, the former Guns N' Roses drummer charged Fisher with living in denial.
"What's wrong with denial?" Drew asked.
Actor Jeff Conaway, best known for his television and movie roles in 'Taxi,' 'Babylon 5' and 'Grease,' died Friday at age 60, RadarOnline.com reports and The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The news comes just a day after reports that the star would be taken off life support.
Radar calls it "the end a long, sad road of addiction that made him one of Hollywood's cautionary tales." Conaway, known for his roles as Bobby Wheeler on 'Taxi' and T-Bird Kenickie in 'Grease,' was a New York native whose brutal battles with substance abuse came to define the latter decades of his fame.
Conaway was checked into an LA hospital on May 11. As of May 26, he was reported to have been experiencing no brain activity. A source told Radar that Conaway's feeding tube had been removed as of Thursday afternoon and that "Jeff is in no pain whatsoever."
Now, after admitting that she was sexually abused as a child, the former 'Real Housewives' star is now seeking treatment for her psychological problems.
Staub told PEOPLE that it was the childhood sexual abuse that caused her to have issues with low self esteem. She is quoted saying, "I have addictions with love and low self-esteem, and I need help!"
The 48-year old continues, "My low self-esteem derived from childhood sexual abuse has messed with my mind and self-worth, and over the years I thought about getting help but pushed it deep into the depths of denial. For years I have had the suicide hotline on my cell phone and would like nothing more than to free myself from this constant pressure."
In addition to 'Celebrity Rehab' (and offshoots 'Sober House' and 'Sex Rehab'), a new HLN show and hosting MTV's '16 and Pregnant' and 'Teen Mom' specials, the good doctor is adding another series to his resume. Entertainment Weekly reports that Pinsky will headline a new half-hour daytime talk show on The CW called 'Dr. Drew's Lifechangers.'
Pinsky will touch on familiar topics like addiction and relationship problems, bringing in experts to weigh in on the issues.
The first thing I thought of when I learned the celebrity lineup on the next edition of VH-1's Celebrity Rehab was "wow, this could get ugly." The New York Post is reporting that the celebs involved in the second edition of the show include Jeff Conaway (who was on the first edition but decided to leave before it was over), Gary Busey, Rodney King, Sean Stewart (Rod's son), former American Idol contestant Nikki McKibben, Tawny Kitean, Amber Smith, and former Guns 'n Roses drummer Steven Adler.
This is really sad for all of the obvious celebrities-doing-reality shows reasons, but I'm also a little irritated by Dr. Drew Pinsky, who is the leader/executive producer of this show. Once upon a time I'm sure Pinsky simply wanted to help people, but now, although I'm sure he'd rather see these people cleaned up than going through addiction and other problems (obviously), there's more than a whiff of exploitation in the air. Like Dr. Phil, he could easily counsel these people away from the cameras. Why does everything (and everyone) have to be on television now?
Filming for the season began on Monday and the show will debut in October.
