Andy Dick Checks Into Rehab After Producers Stage On-Air Intervention
Andy Dick's struggles with alcoholism haven't exactly been private, but they just got even less so when his boss and colleagues staged an on-air intervention during filming of Dick's internet series, Andy Dick Live!
In an episode that filmed yesterday, producer Alki David stepped onto the stage with a microphone, and told Dick as cameras rolled that if Dick didn't get sober, the two of them could no longer continue working together. Onstage as well was an intervention counselor, who invited Dick to Oasis Treatment Center in Anaheim, CA.
Dick checked in today. This is his 13th time in rehab.
