Dr. Drew Pinsky has a book coming out called The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America. In honor of his book’s publication, Dr. Drew provided Extra with his assessment and diagnosis of several celebrities: Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Nicole Richie.
‘I think Lindsay is one of my peeps — she’s a straight-up addict,’
Dr. Drew declares.
Drew also discussed Britney’s troubled past, which includes two
hospitalizations. ‘Britney had severe mental illness,’ Pinksy said. ‘I
thought she was going to die. Britney is only alive because of the
actions of her parents.’
According to Dr. Pinsky, former wild child Nicole Richie’s salvation
from addiction was becoming a parent to baby Harlow. ‘In my opinion,
motherhood has a very positive impact on addiction,’ Pinsky said. ‘Nicole is actually somewhat of an inspirational story.’ “
