Gooden/DykstraBy Evan Brunell

Stories about Lenny Dykstra are getting crazier and crazier.

“Dykstra came to visit me on ‘Celebrity Rehab,’” former Mets great Dwight Gooden told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Tuesday according to CBS New York. “I’ll tell you what, it was crazy. He thought that I had been hypnotized and [Dr. Drew Pinksy] got me in there and was holding me hostage. He tried to come in with two guys to get me out of there.”

Gooden is one of the bigger names appearing on 'Celebrity Rehab' season five, which will air sometime in the fall of 2011 or winter. He will be joined by a cast that includes Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay.

“So they come in. I’m talking to him, he wanted to talk, ‘Doc, I don’t like this,’" Gooden recalled." So we go out on the patio, me and him and the two guys are sitting there, we’re talking.

“He said, ‘you sure this is what you want?’ I go ‘yeah.’ He goes, ‘I don’t know, I don’t feel good about this … let me take your bags and if you don’t like it, you call me.’ I was like, ‘trust me, I’m cool.’

“This is not part of the show. This is real stuff,” Gooden continued. “Whether they got it [on video] or not, I’m not sure.”

Dykstra has made headlines recently for, in short, acting like Charlie Sheen. Dykstra was bailed out of jail by Sheen when Dykstra was jailed for bankruptcy charges. Nails had previously admitted using performance-enhancing drugs, saying he was "like a pioneer for that stuff." He was also in the news last month for asking a prospective housekeeper to give him a massage while he was buck naked.

Coud not agree more ... it's like 'when is a Ministry not a Ministry?  When it's a television Ministry - or when it's about the $$$$$$$."  
Briefy met Dykstra during his playing days - he was staying in same Cinci hotel, room next door to a fellow conference attendee & buddy ... he had a long loud night with at east five women in there... some guys just do not know how to regain control, and that is the trainwreck we see in Sheen & Nails. Amusing perhaps on TV, but sad in reality. Apparently Doc needs the pub, and like the rest of most of those fools is more interested in the spotlight than in their recovery and well-being. Hope he makes it... Dr. Drew wins either way.

I'm thinking Nails was chillin' with some of his cronies and everyone is high and someone says "why dont we bust Doc out?"  The more Lenny thinks about it, the more he likes it...."Let's roll!"

Lenny has a point. There is a saying in Rehad, AA rooms, and NA rooms. That saying is what is said here says here. As for DR Drew. This guy only cares about money and fame. If you really care for your rehad patiences you would not put their rehad stay on T.V. for the world to see. Recovery is about getting your true feeling out and talk about what you did in your addiction. Well i bet their are people on that show that didn't say everything they did in their addiction or didn't talk about somethings that happened in their live, because they were affraid of the world finding out about it. That alone will bring someone back to their using.  Dr Drew should know this. Which he probably does ,but doesn't care.

     I know Gary Busey, and a couple other people on this show, plus Doc Gooden. but the other people on celebrity rehab ? I don't know any of them, and I use to watch a lot of TV, and every movie that comes out. Who are they ? Why is it called Celebrity Rehab ? Oh, and the guy from Taxi that recently went into a coma.

"The show should of asked Dykstra to stay.  Now that would of brought some ratings."

There's no rehab protocol for being a dick.
