Celebrity Rehab Dropped like a Bad Habit by VH1

VH1 has decided to put Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew on an indefinite hold.

Not good news for the show as it may never return.

The show has been on the air since 2008 and right now there are no plans to order up any new episodes.


A representative for VH1 told TheWrap that “Celebrity Rehab” — which stars Dr. Drew Pinsky and a rotating cast of famous faces struggling to recover from substance abuse — “is not on the schedule currently.” Which doesn’t automatically spell doom, but it certainly doesn’t bode well.

While popular, the series has generated controversy, with some questioning whether the show fosters effective treatment. Last year, two former cast members died, with “Grease” star Jeff Conaway succumbing to complications from prescription drug use and former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr expiring at the age of 44, weeks after being arrested while in possession of unauthorized prescription drugs. Meanwhile, “Real Housewives” alum Michaele Salahi was removed from the Season 5 cast, reportedly because she had no actual addiction (other than to fame, of course) to treat.
