    Default Another Dr. Drew success story: Joey Kovar from "Celebrity Rehab" dead at 29

    Joey Kovar 'Real World' Star DEAD Family Suspects Drugs

    exclusive


    Joey Kovar -- the troubled "Real World" star who appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" -- was found dead at a friend's home near Chicago this morning ... and family members believe drugs are to blame ... TMZ has learned.

    Kovar was 29 years old.

    Kovar's rep tells TMZ ... Joey was discovered by a female friend early this morning who noticed blood coming out of Joey's ears and nose.

    The woman called 911 ... and authorities rushed to the scene where he was pronounced dead.



    Kovar had famously battled drug issues -- and sought help for cocaine and ecstasy during his stint on "Celeb Rehab."

    While on "Real World: Hollywood," Kovar entered rehab halfway through the season for alcohol and drugs, admitting he'd struggled with substance abuse for years. It was a pretty powerful moment on the show.

    I bet Dr Drew is going to have a special on MTV or CNN talking about how he tried to save him and if he had only listened to him he would still be alive

    Fake show. The people on that show want to be filmed and get TV time. I don't believe that show works. I do however enjoy watching. I saw the first season, and the one with Frankie, Keysha Coles mom, and Leif Garrett
    Thank goodness I don't know who this guy is. The best years of the Real World was before the Las Vegas season. I would have been really sad if it were someone like Tek or Ruthie from the Hawaii season.

    I've watched every season of Celebrity Rehab, and I have never seen this guy I swear to God. Doesn't ring a bell at all.

    But if he went to Dr Drew, not surprised by the results.

    Dr. Drew probably got his medical degree from the internets.

    I vaguely remember him, he was a Jersey Shore type. I had no clue who he was since I never watched The Real World past maybe season 3. They really didn't show him much because they had much better drama with Fleiss, Sizemore, McCready, Mackenzie Phillips, Mike Starr et al.

    Well, the reality of it is: an addict is an addict. If they choose to go back to using, all the people in the world can't help them. Period.

    Never seen the show, but I gather from your comments that Drew is a "doctor" the way Phil McGraw is a "doctor".

    Dr. Drew is actually a real doctor. Or rather, he used to be, before he got sucked into the fame and $ trap.
