Things Could Get Extra Messy on ‘Celebrity Rehab 3’

Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, season three, has been scheduled for a Jan. 7 premiere on VH1, and the cast includes former couple Tom Sizemore and Heidi Fleiss, which should prove to be weird and creepy since their tumultuous relationship included his 2003 conviction for assault and battery against her. That can’t be a good idea, or even one that would be permitted in non-celebreality rehab, right?

VH1 has released a “supertrailer” for the new season (watch below), which finds one of the celebs having a seizure and definitely crosses over into that really uncomfortable genre of reality TV that makes you think millions of TV viewers just shouldn’t be privy to this particular moment in anyone’s life.

PS – If you caught the recently-concluded Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew on VH1, you might want to check out a column written by Sex Rehab participant Duncan Roy, who has some very interesting, and not flattering, things to say about Dr. Drew Pinsky.

What’s your take on Dr. Drew and the various Celeb Rehab series? Is it possible that they provide any sort of public service to anyone, or are they just exploitative?

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Great news: Mad Men will return for its third season on A&E in August.

– Bad news: Dennis Rodman‘s goin’ to rehab. The good news: Since he’s obviously not averse to making a boob of himself on TV, now he can sign up for Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky.

– More Idol news: Paula Abdul‘s singing on tonight’s “Rock Week” episode.

– And still more Idol news, news that should make the aforementioned Ms. Abdul quite happy: TVGuide.com readers have spoken, and nearly 60 percent of them think newbie judge Kara DioGuardi should turn in her Coke cup after this season.
