First Kim Richards and now this!

Dr. Phil's talk show has basically become a platform for him to hold interventions for stars in need this year, and it seems like he just had another blowup.

That's because Nicholas Brendon stopped by the show on Wednesday to talk about his three arrests this year as well as his stint in rehab, but felt attacked by the TV personality from the very start!

Apparently, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor says that he felt like Dr. Phil simply wanted ratings, and even issued a statement on his exit, saying:

Oh no!

On Wednesday, it was reported that Josh Duggar checked himself into rehab following the Ashley Madison hack that revealed he'd been unfaithful to his wife Anna Duggar.

In his statement regarding the scandal, the 19 Kids and Counting star confessed that in addition to cheating on his wife, he also struggled with porn addiction (which he quickly deleted).

According to the Duggar family, the 27-year-old will attend a "long-term treatment center" for undisclosed reasons.

Whomp, whomp.

Despite the scandalous news that led to his entrance into the treatment facility, Josh is in no way the first celebrity to check themselves into rehab…

Queen Of Versailles Stars Jackie & David Siegel Open Up About The Death Of Their Daughter Victoria

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadAddiction

Victoria Siegel's parents speak out about their daughter's passing.

We can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child.

Victoria Siegel was found unresponsive in her home last month, before being rushed to Health Center Hospital in Florida. Sadly, she was pronounced dead while at the medical facility, because of what we now know was a drug overdose.

After releasing the results of her autopsy, which was conducted back in June, Queen of Versailles stars Jackie and David Siegel are speaking out about their daughter's untimely passing.

Her father reveals that the 18-year-old suffered from anxiety, saying:

"Victoria was the perfect storm. She had trouble getting through high school, she didn't like school, so she wasn't making good grades. She did graduate, but when she graduated, she didn't plan to go to college, at least not right away."

He explained that a therapist prescribed her some Xanax, which is how she ultimately developed a drug addiction. The autopsy showed that Victoria's death was the result of a lethal combination of pain and depression medication — specifically methadone and sertraline.

Her parents say they believe it was cyberbullying that forced their daughter to turn to drugs that fateful day.

That weekend was her one-month anniversary with her boyfriend, a man who was eight years older than her and shared a daughter with his ex.

David and Jackie let Victoria stay home from a family trip to Utah so she could celebrate with him, since they were nervous she would relapse if they didn't.

The morning her body was found, her boyfriend's ex was paying him a visit, when she snatched his phone to text Victoria. David explains his daughter was being cyberbullied:

Macklemore Admits To Drug Relapse — Criticism And Career Stress To Blame

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteAddictionMacklemore

Macklemore admits he fell off the wagon.

With a lot of success comes a lot of pressure.

And after Macklemore had such an incredible year in 2014, he admitted he fell off the wagon a little bit. The recovering addict and his musical partner, Ryan Lewis, had won several awards and their songs were dominating the charts.

But, the 32-year-old explained that the attention and new, crazy lifestyle caused him to recently relapse and get back into drugs, specifically marijuana and pills:

"I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren't sleeping — doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame — everything. All the clichés, man — like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings — all of that put into one pie was just…I just wanted to escape."

But one day, his fiancée, Tricia Davis, found some drugs he had been hiding, which forced him to press pause on his using habits, at least for a little while. But unfortunately, he explained, it didn't last very long:

"I sat in a car, a hot boxed car — I thought that was a good idea — and got high. And then the next day it was like, ‘What's up with the weed?' And once I'm there, it's over."

As much as he wanted to stop, the rapper revealed he just couldn't convince himself to quit:

"You know, like, Monday, I'ma stop…. OK. Tuesday, I'ma stop…. OK, f—k it, I might as well go on to the weekend. Sunday, I'm done. But after this bag of weed…"

It even began to invade his professional life:
