Oh, don’t MESS with Tommy-Girl! Especially if you are a PSYCHIATRIST, Tommy’s most hated profession. Dr. Drew Pinsky, who leads Celebrity Rehab and is the holder of an actual degree (unlike Tommy OR some OTHER celebrity shrinks), speaks to Playboy this month and mentions Tommy. Dr. Drew says:
A lot of people in the public eye who behave strangely have mental illness we can learn from, and much of it is based on childhood trauma, without a doubt. Take a guy like Tom Cruise. Why would somebody be drawn into a cultish kind of environment like Scientology? To me, that’s a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious neglect in childhood – maybe some abuse, but mostly neglect.
Of course, Tommy pulled out big gun attorney Bert Fields to do his talking. Bert fired back that Dr. Drew was an “unqualified television performer who is obviously just looking for notoriety,” adding, “The last time we heard garbage like this was from Joseph Goebbels.” Um, isn’t Tommy playing the Nazi in his upcoming movie Valkyrie? I’m just sayin.
I don’t think Dr. Drew needs more notoriety. He’s more than just a TV performer, and Celebrity Rehab is one reality show that actually has some merit- it helps people rather than eliminating, banishing, or voting them off the island.
Methinks Tommy is a wee bit sensitive. He’s admitted that his father was abusive, but the real bee in his bonnet is the dig against Scientology. Tommy can’t STAND any of that. He’s “clear”, an “operating thetan” and is WAY smarter than any of us.
Those who don’t believe in Xenu and volcanoes erupting little thetans all over us aren’t the crazy ones. But Dr. Drew might wanna watch his back a bit- Scientologists have a history of making people disappear! Good thing he’s well known! Gawker has the infamous indoctrination video-check it out for yourself!
