20120105-051357.jpgIt seems that VH1 has decided to drop “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” like a bad habit. At least for the time being. While the cable network hasn’t outright canceled the series, which has run for five seasons since its 2008 debut, it has no plans for new episodes of the reality offering for the foreseeable future. Could it be too much reality for people to handle? Majority of the “REALITY” nonsense on the tube is about imaginary lifestyles, and people flaunting things that they don’t possess. Or could it be the controversy the show has generated? While popular, the series has some people 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. As of now, no ones really saying if we’ll ever see the “TRAIN-WRECK” of celebrity addictions played out in our living rooms, anytime soon.
