This weeks man is a special request from a very dear friend. I have to admit there was a time I had a crush on our man of the week.
Celebrity doctor promoting safe sex and sobriety. He is America's most listened to doctor on the radio or so his bio claims. He used to go on house calls with his dad the doctor as a kid and decided that was what he wanted to do. A football player and class president in high school, this doc went on to undergrad at Amherst, but went back to the west coast for his medical degree. Met wife at a bar and is the father of triplets. In his spare time likes to hang with his children, read by the pool, play the piano, ski and sing opera (he's a baritone & he trained for 12 years).
His radio show in Lovelines KROQ in LA, started out small and grew and grew to syndication and a show on MTV....which is when I had the aforementioned crush. Also hosted Celebrity rehab on VH1. Dedicated to helping young people connect, Dr. Drew has spoken on Capitol Hill for the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and has participated in the State of Our Youth at the Carter Center with Rosalind Carter. He is a fave guest on daytime talk shows.
In 2006 he co-authored the first academic study on celebrities and narcissism published in the Journal of Research in Personality (Elsevier.) His latest book, Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America (Harper-Collins) will be released in March/April 2009.
I give you.............. Dr Drew Pinsky
