Dr Drew Pinsky, our favourite TV doc has copped to his own past history of drug use.

Dr Drew, who is well known for helping countless people and celebrities get sober, made the admission during Thursday night's episode of his Dr Drew show, that he had previously used marijuana and cocaine, when he was discussing the Duggar scandal and the issue of 'perfectionism'.

He confessed;

“I did drugs and alcohol when I was 22, 23 years old.  I think I went around denying it when my kids were younger. There’s a very strict parenting rule I have which is ‘you do not tell anybody what you did in your adolescence/young adulthood unless you want your kids to do the same.  My kids just graduated from college so I can talk about anything right now. I did drugs—cocaine, alcohol, pot.

When I saw people unable to stop…’Oh my God, this is something very different than what I experienced.

Dr Drew worked as a chemical dependency director at Las Encinas hospital in Pasadena before starting Celebrity Rehab With Dr Drew in 2008.  The show aired for six seasons and gave us a real insight into the struggles of addiction.

There have been rumors about Pinsky's past (a former colleague is threatening a tell all book), which he hasn't addressed until now—clearly because he had young children he was trying to set a good example to—an absolutely understandable decision.

To be honest who cares what his history is and how he got to the place he is right now—someone who has truly helped many people.  He himself admits;

"I am not perfect. I was a screw ball just like everybody else.”

Much like MDMA, Madonna's MDNA is the sort of thing that might make appearances at dance parties. And again like MDMA, MDNA is the sort of thing that addiction specialist and Celebrity Rehab guy Dr. Drew gets the screaming shivers about, enough to make an entire video warning people of how addictive the album is. Specifically, it's the sort of album that could produce "dramatic increase in heart rate," "spontaneous dancing" and a "deep depression" if one should ever stop listening.

These are quite encouraging symptoms for Madonna! Having heard the record and experienced those side effects and more, we'll add: Catholic guilt; side-eye twitches; beating up the beat; thinking about dubstep; breaking out old Gwen Stefani and Shangri-Las records after hearing "Gang Bang"; breaking out old Madonna records and experiencing sudden feelings of attachment to her old voice; experiencing equally sudden urges to take Benny Benassi and Martin Solveig in either crook of the arm and bang their heads together, essentially reproducing the beats they've just inflicted on you; humming "Give Me All Your Luvin" involuntarily after half an hour when something's slipped in the brain chemistry.

Yeeeeaaaah, you probably guessed that we'll have more to say on MDNA later. In the meantime, definitely listen to Dr. Drew before experimenting with Madonna music. Do you really want to be the person who goes on My Strange Addiction with home footage of yourself in your bedroom, soused and soaked in glitter and headbanging in the fetal position to "Girl Gone Wild"? That's the sort of thing nobody'll forget.

Forget the Conrad Murray trial, the most important verdict of the day comes from none other than Courtney "I'm Rill Real" Stodden. After discussing her behavior at a California pumpkin patch a few weeks ago, Dr. Drew invited Stodden and her equally fame hungry husband Doug Hutchison to stop by his "Lifechangers" episode, with the chance to put those nasty plastic surgery rumors to rest for once and for all. Dressed in a medical robe while wearing a full face of makeup, Stodden underwent an ultrasound on the show, much to dismay of more than one scared audience member, where it was revealed that her breasts have not been surgically enhanced. So she just wants them to look that way? Watch the big moment below.

Both thanked Drew for finally giving them the "relief" they've been looking for. Hopefully they can now get back to planning their next holiday-themed act of public indecency or perhaps start experimenting with new hair colors for Stodden's dogs. As for us, we plan on getting back to forgetting their names. Until their next ridiculous television appearance, that is.

Human barbie doll Courtney Stodden will put her presumed plastic body parts to the test for Dr. Drew on Monday, during his aptly titled "Lifechangers" episode. Because we'd be lying if we didn't admit that the teen bride and her 51-year-old husband Doug Hutchison have indeed changed our lives this year—for the better! Think about the lack of Halloween options if we hadn't met her? The 17-year-old Stodden has been criticized for her mature appearance, gaining suspicions that she's had a series of plastic surgeries which ostensibly all had to be signed off on by her mother, just like her marriage. To quiet the public disapproval and keep the names of these attention whores in our collective consciousness, Dr. Drew has taken on the arduous task of proving whether or not Courtney is in fact real. Or, "rill." As much as Hutchison would like to play doctor in this scenario, producers have wisely decided to leave all examining to the professionals, with a plastic surgeon and ultrasound machine on hand to determine what—if anything—on Courtney's body was altered, and what was just God's gift...to us all. Up next, Katie Couric will examine Stodden's understanding of the English language. Watch a preview of Monday's episode below.
