Dr. Drew Pinsky is questioning Lindsay Lohan’s explanation of her recent medical mishap, saying he believes it’s physically impossible for a twenty-five-year-old to be unable to be woken because of exhaustion and dehydration, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported, Lohan was treated for “exhaustion” after working all night on the set ofLiz & Dick, a week and a half ago.
The actress was found in the penthouse of the Ritz-Carlton and paramedics were called. Lindsay’s rep released a statement at the time stating: “Lindsay worked a grueling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 p.m. and worked through the night until 8 a.m. this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene. Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon.”
“It’s absolutely impossible for a normal healthy, twenty-five-year-old woman to be unable to be woken because of dehydration and exhaustion,” Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Something else was obviously going on with Lindsay, because like I said, that just doesn’t happen, even if she had been working grueling hours. For someone to be unable to be woken and basically unconscious is very serious. Eighty-five-year-old men and women can be in that state, but not someone who is Lindsay’s age. I wish Lindsay only the best, but I’m truly worried about her.”
Lohan is scheduled to complete filming on Liz & Dick in the next two weeks, and the Lifetime biopic will air this fall. Dr. Drew’s show on HLN can be seen nightly at 6 p.m.
LiLo’s rep Steve Honig tells Radar, “I think it’s irresponsible for a doctor to be making a diagnosis about a person they have not examined, or about a situation of which they do not have all the facts. Unless, of course, they are looking to get publicity for themselves.”
We all know how Dr. Drew likes his gossip just as much as the next person, don’t we? Because that’s really what this is. I don’t think he ever says anything about a celebrity in a specific attempt to offer medical advice, I think he’s just a big ol’ gossip and he has a different frame of reference that he can use. I’m not saying it’s a good thing for him to be doing, and I understand why so many people feel weird about it, but guys, let Drew dish when he needs to, ok?

Oh, that Dr. Drew, what a scoundrel! He has quite the habit of upsetting people by talking about celebrities and their problems without ever actually meeting them, doesn’t he? Whether you love him or hate him, we’ll get to that in a minute, but for now, let’s hear what he has to say this time about Angelina Jolie:
Dr. Drew Pinsky took to “The View” (weekdays on ABC) on Friday to speak out about Angelina Jolie, who he believes, from watching her at the Oscars, is “malnourished.”
“I’m tired of keeping quiet about this stuff. When I was quiet about prescription drug use and then everyone starts dying, now I feel an obligation to speak up: She’s malnourished. She has the [physical signs] … of malnutrition,” he said.
Dr. Drew went on to speculate as to what may be going on with Jolie’s health. He cited an US Weekly report that claimed she may have been depriving herself of food in order to “make a statement about the kids in Africa that she was working with that didn’t have a chance to eat,” according to Dr. Drew. “I just see malnutrition for some reason there, and we shouldn’t look at that as an ideal of beauty,” he continued. “She’s a beautiful woman, but she needs to be better nourished.”
I’m sure there’s going to be a number of people who are upset by this, but Dr. Drew doesn’t get it, and honestly, I don’t really get it either. I mean, check out what Angelina Jolie looked like during the Oscars one more time:
I could say that she looked malnourished, and I seriously doubt anyone would call me out on it, let alone get seriously upset about it, but Dr. Drew is different. It’s because he’s an actual doctor, right? Then why does no one get all up in arms when a plastic surgeon speculates on the work some celebrity has had done without ever treating them personally? Is it because he usually discusses deeper things than lip injections and nose jobs? Really, I’m actually curious about all this.
But yeah, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Angelina actually was malnourished, would you? Girl’s got to get some meat on them bones in the worst way.

In the meantime, Kate Major has been keeping herself busy! To start, she sat down with Dr. Drew, who was happy to help her air some of her business on national television. She dropped a bunch of bombshells during their interview, too, like:
- Michael Lohan is on steroids
- Michael Lohan has been shopping around a sex tape that Kate Major says she didn’t know existed
- Michael Lohan was using the threat of said sex tape to make Kate Major drop her restraining order
- Michael Lohan once tried to force-feed Kate Major an eyeliner pencil
- No, she’s never met Lindsay
After the episode finished taping, Kate Major caught a flight from L.A. back to Tampa, where she lives. And you’ll never guess what happened next! Kate Major drunkenly assaulted someone on the flight! Right there in first class! Then she was escorted from the plane, arrested, cited with misdemeanor battery, and released. I know! And while this was all going down, Lindsay Lohan managed to serve an entire jail sentence.

She’s done it yet again: somehow I’m still talking about Courtney Stodden. I don’t know, you guys. Anytime I do, I hurt and offend myself.
This time, Courtney Stodden wants to prove to you that her magnificent rack is rill. (For a long time, I believed it was, actually, but these days? Eh.)
So get ready! Get set! Courtney has delegated none other than Dr. Drew Pinsky—the most credible medical authority around!—to help her prove to ye disbelieving masses that her gazoombas are genuine. Reports US:
On Monday’s episode of Pinsky’s Lifechangers, Doug Hutchison, 51, looks on as his wife gets an ultrasound on TV to prove her breasts are real.
“A knife has never touched this body,” Stodden confirms in a preview clip from Monday’s show.
While the results of Stodden’s ultrasound won’t be revealed until the episode airs, Lifechangers doctor John Diaz admits he has his doubts about Stodden’s bod. “Like most people, when I saw the pictures, I did suspect that you had some breast augmentation,” he told the aspiring singer.
And there you have it: Courtney is pulling a total Kardashian, all in the name of Science. Are her boobs real? Can you even wait to find out?? I can’t believe I have to wait one whole day!!!

Yeah, so I think that headline and this video really speak for themselves. Well, and also I thought that some of you might care to hear Joseph Gordon-Levitt talk about sex. That’s bound to do something for someone, right?

Angelina and Brad, Eva Longoria, Miley Cyrus – seriously, Dr. Drew doesn’t hold back.
On Angelina Jolie and heroin and also Brad Pitt: There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict.’ That doesn’t exist in nature. Something is going on with [her] addiction. Or she’s in recovery. And I don’t see any evidence that’s the case. So we’ve got one person whose a heroin addict. Which is a chronic lifelong condition, period. We have another person who has said things like, “Well, Jennifer [Aniston] was into long-term relationships, that’s just her way of looking at things.” I mean, that demeaning attitude towards other people’s emotions. Now put those two people together and you have got a really volatile situation. And they’re constantly creating things to weld themselves together. Which is only going to serve to make a more nuclear eruption. There will be some sort of meltdown that will be phenomenal when it does happen.
On Eva Longoria’s recent breakup: This guy is trying to have a marriage … and he starts acting out [sexually] like that? I don’t have to watch too many episodes of [VH1's "Basketball Wives"] to know what’s going on. Now, why didn’t Eva know about that? Talk about love addiction.
On Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynold’s divorce: I don’t know what that was … I’ve known Ryan for a long time. He seems like someone who should have a healthy relationship.
On Miley Cyrus: Can you imagine the pain that Miley is in? Her mom just had an affair. Her parents are breaking up … She’s in trouble right now. She’s manifesting signs of mental health problems, as well she should, right? It’s a teenager in trouble because of problems.
On Kelsey Grammar and his fourth wife: I don’t know what to do with Kelsey. I need to know him a little better. But when you see serial re-marriers it’s usually more people of Larry King’s generation. And their thing was, they didn’t have sex unless they were married. I can’t make sense of it.
Here’s the deal – I love Dr. Drew. I think he’s a really great dude. He does a ridiculous amount of work – he has a private medical practice, he works at a hospital, he speaks at colleges all the time, and he’s done Loveline for two hours a night, five nights a week since 1984 – he really wants to help people. As for the televised rehab business, he’s said time and again that it’s a bait and switch in that the celebrities do it for the money and the press, and while that’s a flawed motivation, they still end up in treatment, which is more than they would have gotten on their own. People might point out that a lot of his patients relapse, but, you know, addicts tend to relapse a couple times. And in terms of the viewers, they get to learn a little about addiction and recovery, and people call into Loveline all the time to say that Celebrity Rehab helped motivate them to go to rehab themselves. The man does good stuff.
I think that Dr. Drew has the best intentions, and with things like this, the statements about celebrities, he’s just trying to help by offering educated opinions on addiction, which he constantly says is the number one problem of this generation. And the guy’s been treating addicts and giving relationship advice for almost thirty years now, so I’m pretty confident he knows what he’s talking about.
