Dr. Drew is an expert on treating addiction, so this is surely to hit close to home.
He has nothing but love and admiration for his daughter and, now, the 21-year-old Paulina Pinsky is opening up about her 7 year battle with anorexia.
And, as an addiction medicine specialist, he knows all about what goes into a fight like this, but a lot of her issues seem to stem from her upbringing, especially her mother, his wife of 22 years, Susan Pinsky. In fact, what Paulina says about the pressures her mother put on her are even tough to read.
In a statement, Dr. Drew said:
The Hills' Jason Wahler is lightyears away from his old seaside bad boy ways!
The newlywed has not only transformed physically, but emotionally as well since his rebellious teen years.
While Jason refuses to blame the mega-successful show for his demons, he will admit that the overnight fame and all access pass to guilty pleasures only made his mental instability swell up — so much so that he tried to commit suicide!!!
In an uber candid piece, Jason revealed:
We can't believe he kept this a secret!
Dr. Drew Pinsky has such an amazing story to tell and we're so happy he's sharing his knowledge with the world.
He helps so many people, so we're glad that there were some seriously brilliant doctors there for him when he needed it.
Dr. Drew just recently revealed that he suffered from prostate cancer and thankfully after a radical robotic prostatectomy earlier this year, he's cancer free!
"While many of you were celebrating the Fourth of July, I was at home on my couch recovering from a radical robotic prostatectomy. Four hours of surgery had left me in great pain, without an appetite, and in need of help from my college-age son, Jordan, to get up and lie down. But I was cancer-free for the first time in at least two years."
He wrote a personal blog post to tell his story.
Dr. Drew wanted people to hear about it directly from him, not from the media or anyone else.
He also wanted to raise awareness of the disease, saying:
Paging Dr. Drew and Dr. Drew!
After being arrested last month for attempted burglary (and a slew of other charges), Renee Alway's family is speaking out and they say she needs help — STAT!
According to the America’s Next Top Model contestant's mom, Renee was recently cut off financially because the money was fueling her out of control drug habit.
Her sister adds the night she was arrested, the Cycle 8 finalist was homeless and in "survival mode", but hopes to get Renee back on track with the help of well-known professionals. She explains:

Well this just got awkward!
Dr. Drew tweeted what he thought was a supportive message to Amanda Bynes, which subsequently caused her to take it the wrong way and lash out!
And by “lash out”, we really mean that Amanda called Dr. Drew ugly.
Over the weekend, Dr. Drew tweeted:
We see how he was trying to be supportive by not offering help to someone who’s clearly not asking, but we can also see why Amanda took offence!
Amanda tweeted in response:
Remember that amazing time when Honey Boo Boo fell asleep on Dr. Drew's television show???
Well apparently not only was that incredible, but inspiring as well!
Dr. Drew and Honey Boo Boo teamed up with artist JD Schultz to create an original art piece that commemorated that epic event, and they're going to auction it off for charity!
The piece (above) is called Honey Boo Drew and was inspired by a series of photographs that Honey Boo Boo took of Dr. Drew and herself on her iPad after that infamous interview.
It will be auctioned off at the annual Hillsides Foster Soles event on May 22nd. Proceeds will benefit Hillsides various program for Foster kids.
Honey Boo Boo transcends ALL culture!!!

Angelina Jolie's decision to have a preventative double mastectomy in February probably wasn't the easiest decision (we're sure it was as difficult as they come), but it was the right decision as Angelina revealed she had an 87% chance of getting breast cancer due to a genetic predisposition.
It's true that she kept it quiet, but we're positive she had the support of those closest to her! Now, we're hearing about all the support from her peers now that she's spoken publicly about what she's had to go through!
Here's some of what the celebs are saying on Twitter!
