In an attempt to procrastinate instead of cleaning out the vacuum cleaner or starting my new online class, I was just flicking through the channels and happened upon VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
I can't even stand it for one minute. I have NO CLUE why anyone would want to watch this. Good lord, imagine working there? Dealing with addicts is hard enough--imagine dealing with washed-up celebrity addicts who are all extra-dramatic, getting off on dancing for the camera like idiots? How can having cameras in a rehab be therapeutic in any way?
Oh my god, that Dr. Drew is sitting there, talking to a patient, with a stethoscope around his neck. I know he's an actual MD, but I don't know ANY doctor who does psychotherapy with a stethoscope dangling off of him.
Porn stars and washed-up actors and actresses and rock stars all begging for attention and "something to calm me down" and getting off on draping themselves on the floor and shoving their fingers down their throats to induce retching so they can get some kind of medication, ANY KIND OF MEDS!!!!!!
I can't even STAND IT. It's too much like being at work.
