How bright do they shine? –
MAY 18, 2020 – Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew aired for five seasons, with a sixth season featuring everyday people. Pinsky also worked with high-profile addicts in two Celebrity Rehab spin-offs. Sober House chronicled the post-rehab lives of prior Celebrity Rehab patients as they attempted to juggle freedom and sobriety. The other spin-off, Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, showed Pinsky providing treatment for sex and/or love addiction. As he told Zach Sang and the Gang (via Today) in 2013, Pinsky ultimately stopped doing these shows because he was “tired of taking all of the heat” for negative outcomes of previous participants, including several overdose deaths.
Pinsky has also been in the news for being the eagle on The Masked Singer in 2019 and for making controversial comments in 2020 minimizing the severity of COVID-19 before stay-at-home orders were issued for most of the country.
