VH1’s latest “celebreality” television show is set to debut tonight with the premier of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” scheduled for 10 p.m. ET.
What does the show have to do with MMA? Well, one of the show’s patients is none other than former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez.
The following bio is listed for Ricco on the show’s website:
Rodriguez nick named Ricco “Suave” Rodriguez is an American mixed martial arts fighter with a professional MMA record of 26-7-0. He has fought in most of the major fight organizations–UFC, PRIDE, King of the Cage–and was renowned as the UFC Heavyweight Champion. Ricco has a daughter whom he raised as a single dad for two years.
Other “patients” include actor Daniel Baldwin, actor Jeff Conaway (who is in really bad shape!), former pro wrestler Chyna, porn star Marey Carey, and the annoying dude from Crazy Town (oh wait, that pretty much was all of them!).
They were talking about reviews for the show today on Howard Stern, and apparently some critics are very enthusiastic it. I watched a clip of the show on the VH1 website and I have to admit, I really liked it.
