Dr. Drew Might Be In Trouble Because Of GSK!

| Filed under: Legal MattersDr. Drew

Uh oh!

Dr. Drew Pinsky might be in huge trouble if it can be proved that he was paid to talk up Wellbutrin and its antidepressant effects!

Did they slip him a hundo (short for hundred dollar bill) before he gave talks on his radio show??

Nope, try $275,000 (allegedly).

All of this came about during the justice department's case against drug company GlaxoSmithKline, which has agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor criminal charges and pay $3 billion for committing healthcare fraud.

Which is the largest fraud settlement like that in U.S. history.

Back in 1999, Dr. Drew allegedly was paid the money over two months in “settings where it did not appear that [he] was speaking for GSK.”

Whoops!

Maybe people shouldn't do shady things like this — then they wouldn't get into trouble down the road!

Easy as that!

Butt Injections: "I Never Said I Need This Big Donk-y Butt"

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueDr. DrewHealthScary!

We've ALWAYS been wondering what goes through peoples' minds when they get illegal butt injections.

It seems like such a stupid thing to risk, and such a stupid waste of money.

Well, it turns out that we're not changing our stance after seeing this clip (above) of someone trying to explain the whole thing to Dr. Drew.

Check out the excuses in the video!

P.S. — we're not entirely sure she says "donk-y" or "donkey," so we went with what was more absurd! LOLz!

Dr. Drew Says That Angelina Jolie Is Seriously Malnourished!

Angelina Jolie Malnourished

We didn't want to say anything but… Angelina HAS been looking extremely thin these past few years. We're a little worried too!

According to Dr. Drew, he says that Angelina is seriously malnourished!

All the speculation got stirred up again because of her appearance at the Oscars — and people haven't stopped talking about it!

First it was Bill O'Reilly, who tried to offer a "reality check" for the actress.

Now, it's Dr. Drew Pinsky's turn criticize the star on his show, saying:

"My eye tells me that she is dangerously malnourished."

Oh no!

You'd think she'd have trainers and nutritionists! An army of them!

We just want her to be healthy!

Dr Drew Whoopie Adam

Dr. Drew called in to the Adam Corolla radio show this morning to talk about Whitney Houston… and the flak he's getting from Whoopi Goldberg because of it!

Apparently people have been getting racial vibes from Whoopie's opposition to Dr. Drew being able to talk about the incident. We're not sure we totally picked up on them ourselves, but people can believe what they want!

In addition to talking about the flak, Dr. Drew makes some interesting points and observations about the singer's death!

Take a listen above!

| Filed under: Dr. DrewHealthAlcoholBody

Yuck! This makes us think TWICE about playing beer pong again!

In a recent episode of Life Changers, Dr. Drew is concerned that two twin sisters enjoy drinking alcohol much more than they should.

To prove that there are serious physical dangers of alcoholism, he showed the girls a normal liver and a liver that has suffered cirrhosis, the final phase of chronic liver disease.

We don't want to spoil it for you, but it ain't pretty!

Check out the video above to learn about just one of the dangers of drinking too much alcohol.
