News of troubled country singer Mindy McCready's death from a self-inflicted gunshot wound took the celebrity news world by storm late Sunday.
Criticism of VH1's Celebrity Rehab spread almost as fast.
Mindy is now the fifth celebrity cast member to die since appearing on the show, hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, and the third from Season 3 alone.
The Celebrity Rehab stars who died before McCready:
- Mike Starr, bassist for Alice in Chains
- Joey Kovar, a Real World participant
- Rodney King of L.A. riots fame
- Actor Jeff Conaway
Starr and Kovar overdosed, King was found dead in his pool with alcohol and marijuana in his system, Conaway died of pneumonia and an infection.
