Country music singer and former Celebrity Rehab patient Mindy McCready died on Sunday of an apparent suicide. The thirty-seven-year-old mother had a long history of mental health problems and substance abuse. Her boyfriend killed himself less than a month ago.
Mindy is the fifth Celebrity Rehab participant to die since appearing on the reality show, and she is the third from her season. Despite the turmoil endured by several of his patients, Dr. Drew Pinsky still believes that the show can be successful if the participants maintain treatment.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mindy's family and friends.

As for the status of Kendra’s marriage, RadarOnline reveals her marriage with Hank Baskettis surviving despite the sex tape. Though Hank was not aware that his wife tried to sell her sex tape just 2 years ago, he was apparently aware the sex tapes existed.
