News broke Wednesday via TMZ that Dwight Gooden was headed to rehab celebrity style on VH1’s hit show.
Of course all media outlets quickly ran with the story but as of late Wednesday eve I can tell you for a fact there was no contract signed by the Gooden camp. It may take at least a couple of days to work things out.
And there is no guarantee he will appear on show.
BMF has become tight with Gooden and his small team so I can attest that Celebrity Rehab has been trying to land Doc for well over a year. Although things will hopefully work out there is no deal in place… yet.
Doc’s issue isn’t with alcohol or cocaine as one might assume based on his well chronicled past transgressions. Instead it’s sleep medication.
I for one hope he is able to take advantage of this opportunity. I’m a big fan of the show as well as a believer in Dr Drew who is a genuinely educated and compassionate doctor (unlike that clown Dr Phil)
One of the benefits of appearing on the series is it allows people to see celebrities as real people with real struggles not merely headlines related to drugs and arrests.
Doc could use the PR boost because he’s really a tremendous guy but his headlines of late never mention that.
