Dr. Drew alcoholics 'Snooki' facinates. Dr. Drew Pinsky says that alcoholics such as MTV's 'Snookie' facinate the general public. The "Celebrity Rehab" star has probably made the most audacious promise we've heard all year.
"I'd like to do a different kind of story on Lindsay Lohan," Pinsky said in a statement. "Anybody can get outraged over her behavior, but I want to address what's really happening in her life."
Drew will get that chance every night, starting in March, when his new TV show launches on HLN.
"If I can't talk to Lindsay, I want to talk to people like her," Pinksy said. The reality star said he's almost more interested in the question of why we pay attention to misbehaving celebrities. Noting some of the excesses of Snooki from "Jersey Shore."
"Forget her behavior. She's no different from any other alcoholic. Let's talk about why we watch it. ... I've said this before -- we've gone from fascination with physical freaks to fascination with behavioral freaks," Dr. Drew said.
