TMZ reports that former Mets ace Dwight Gooden will be part of the cast for the upcoming season of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” on VH1.

The other cast members really stretch the definition of celebrity: Michael Lohan, Jeremy Jackson, Bai Ling, and Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Or: A famous person’s father, a guy who was on “Baywatch” a decade ago, a Chinese actress who was one of People magazine’s “50 most beautiful people” back in 1998, and a married couple from another reality show.

I feel bad for Gooden, not because of his troubled past or the fact that he’s going to appear on a second-rate reality show* that’s sure to make him look bad, but because the 46-year-old former Cy Young winner will have to actually live in the same facility with those “celebrities.”

* I’m a big Drew Pinsky fan from way back when he co-hosted “Loveline” with Adam Carolla, but “Celebrity Rehab” is a disaster.

    he should ask Charlie Sheen for advice, if he isn’t busy doing every show but his own.
    just in case better get Lindsay’s number ……..

    At this point, Gooden could probably teach the classes, unfortunately. He’s been through rehab of one sort or another, what, six or seven times?

    How sad is it that along with all Mets’ upheaval this past off season that they have resorted to having Dwight Gooden talk over the phone to wavering season ticket holders in an attempt to convince them to renew their season subscriptions? I could not believe it until I just read in the North Jersey Record. It’s hard to believe so check out the following link:
