  1. Katie says:

    As much as I CANT STAND that Kari Ann (sp) she is supposed to be in a “safe controlled environment” and that donkey grabbing her hair extensions like that is NOT OK. Although it has been clear that KA deserves a good %~+@@_@#+)`@~#! kicking she really does need to sue that idiot who did that to her.

  2. shari says:

    i disagree-kari ann IS in a safe environment. she is just a feenin addict, and i’m thinking it’s more than sex she wants. selma has had up to here with this little %@^)@~(#%~%_)#@+) and that’s that. i personally would have served the %@^)@~(#%~%_)#@+) her own &~!)*^&!^&^@($@ a long time ago. dr drew should have removed her from the rest of the group because she belongs on the short bus

  3. Zach says:

    As much as she can be a @%&@`%*~~&$%_&(+( I don’t think she crossed any boundaries…I mean she is a patient and it’s expected for her to be irritable throughout the process. And it seemed like from the beginning that Selma has been egging her on by getting in her face, talking down to her, etc. Even if that is a normal “reflex” for a certain person, that certain person should not be working in a rehab center where that kind of “reflex” can cause problems.

  4. Brian says:

    I don’t think that employee should have been fired. It is NOT ok for Kari Ann to act like that, and physically attack the employee. The employee’s should have the RIGHT to defend themselves from the patients.

  5. Samantha B says:

    I think it was obvious from day one Selma and Kari Ann had conflicting personalities and maybe shouldn’t of been working together. I am saddened by Selmas departure I think she showed amazing constraint up to the “vase” incident. Kari Ann is a spoiled brat and I understand her “irritability” but she shouldnt even be there to begin with she is not serious about getting help and needs a reality check

  6. Brian says:

    I cannot disagree more with what has taken place on this weeks episode. Kari Ann is the one that through the vase. SHE attacked SELMA. Selma should NOT have been fired. If someone attacked me, I sure would defend myself. It was completely wrong firing her. And then everyone gathering around Kari Ann like she did nothing wrong. This makes me very angry.

  7. Marcus says:

    I do not agree. I think Kari Ann should have gone too, because she clearly threw that vase at her. Just because it’s rehab, does not excuse bad behavior. I have been to rehab, and they do restrain patients. Kari Ann was given a pass for bad behavior. That is why kids are so bad today. We just excuse it, or reason with them. I grew up in a home where I got some kind of punishment, and there was none for Kari Ann. The behavior was seen as ok, and she still continued to do it through out the episode.

  8. Rosa R says:

    I’m sick of watching Kari Ann be able to push everybody’s buttons and disrespect everybody whenever she wants and still get preferential treatment by allowing her to stay. That idiot b#@ needs psychiatric treatment before she even needs to consider rehab. & the sad part is that it is obvious that she knows she is pushing everybody’s buttons and getting away with it. She so needs to be kicked out. Selma may have been wrong for reacting as she did, but the fact remains that had that little b#@ gone to group like she was supposed to, none of it would have happened, and she did instigate the reaction by throwing an object at her. Get rid of her immature a** please!

  9. Melinda says:

    I think Kari Ann seems to be someone who has some sick sense of entitlement that most beauty queens have. She needs to have all attention on her at all times and seeking it in negitive ways…And Dr.Drew plays right into it, by giving her the attention that she feels she deserves. Leavining the group therepy and putting her ahead of everyone else in treatment is what she wants. She wants to be the PRINCESS and its sick!!! SEX IS ATTENTION for her as well as everything else!!!

  10. Jeremy says:

    Kari Ann is simply playing her part. The fact that Dr. Drew coddles her endlessly only proves that he is more interested in keeping drama and conflict around. I thought Dr. Pinsky was a respectable physician but he shows no guts in dealing with Kari Ann. The other patients rehab is suffering because of her. How long before Kari Ann has Shelly in tears, Drew? We all know how Shelly is? Did the show’s producers ask you to manufacture more B.S. drama instead of actually helping patients? Get real Dr. Drew and stop exploiting patients for your personal gains. Real doctors are heroes more so behind the scenes than in front.

  11. suchalady1971 says:

    I was really upset at the way Dr. Drew & his staff handled the situation with the counselor and KariAnn. If your policy is that you needed to fire her that’s one thing…but to sit and lie & claim that she provoked KariAnn and minimize the fact that KariAnn was out of line is UNACCEPTABLE! They both crossed the line & KariAnn should have been removed from the program too! Why didn’t you or your +!!$#!%_)!~)~@$ istant get up to see why she wasn’t in group? or challenge her behavior? The girl clearly has a mental problem that goes far beyond a sex addicition!

  12. tonya says:

    So will Kari Ann breaking the rules, by using the phone after hours be addressed. I ~$(*(^!^~#~#^*% ume not, because she is still there. She signed a contract about her behavior and was supposed to be kicked out if she broke the contract. I would think following the house rules would be in the contract. The amount of leeway given to this chick is unbelievable. And to add insult to injury the staff twisted the encounter she had with Selma, to garner sympathy from the other house members. Selma was wrong and acknowledged that she was and left with dignity. There was not need to further malign her. It was disgusting.

  13. Tina says:

    The whole reason this piece of garbage Kari ann acts the way she does is BECAUSE no one ever stands up to her and when she threw that vase Selma should have and had every right to whoop her to the ground…… an unsafe environment for her is in the public where people are not going to put up with her spoiled ridiculous +%@+_`^`%`)`~~&

  14. Stella says:

    I don’t think I am going to continue to watch this show. I was appalled when the therapists gave kari ann the right in the incident with Selma. Kari Ann has been pushing Selma around since day 1. Dr. Drew, you disappointed me. No one should put their hands on another, but Kari Ann getting the right on this incident was 100% WRONG!!! If you watch the video, Kari Ann pushed Selma in her doorway when Selma was trying to get her to group. 2x in one episode Kari Ann demonstrated violence. Selma was the one who had to bring “princess” her juice. Give me a break. The approach of the therapists giving Princess the right was so wrong!!! The show is joke!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Laura says:

    I’ve never understood why Selma (or the girls in the rehab group) have felt the need to create so much drama for Kari Ann just because she wants to sleep in or occasionally do her own thing. Not all people have the same biological sleep requirements and it very well could be the case that she needs more sleep than average. Also, if she needs personal time for introspection and wants to sit something out, those needs should be respected. Selma was a negative force who was disrespectful and antagonistic to Kari Ann every step of the way. It always felt like she enjoyed her power over Kari Ann a little too much. I think her true colors came out in this episode and I hope Kari Ann is able to be treated in a more civil, respectful environment as a result.

  16. ethel says:

    Bottom line she can’t put her hands on the patients. My sister worked in a nursing home and lost her license to care for people after having a reflex with a patient that hit her. Even if the lady was hit with the vase, she can not hit a patient. She had to be fired. Plus, she really got too frustrated with Kari Ann. Who the f’ cares if she gets up or goes to group. SERIOUSLY.

  17. Scott says:

    Kari may not have ‘known’ what she did but as with any addict I believe this sort of action on her part has worked for her before. I believe it s an extreme passive aggressive script that she developed as a coping mechanism before. She needs to appear to be the sympathetic victim. Where in she pushes and pushes someone she perceives as a threat. The when that person has had enough they retaliate. At which point she claims total innocence and the threat is removed. It seems obvious to me that is this is a working coping mechanism for her. Clearly she needs help with this sort of thing but I don’t believe Selma should not have been fired for it. Extreme as it is Dr. Drew or Jill or any of the staff reviewing the tapes should have seen this coming. I did. I certainly feel bad for the patients and their persons need to be protected in that environment but the staff members need protection as well when dealing with people who are possibly Very unstable or in a Hannibal Lecteresque way psychotic. Again Kari many not necessarily have understood what she was doing but she was following a path like a script running in her head with purpose and intent subconsciously or other wise.

  18. Scott says:

    I believe this sort of action on Kari Ann’s part has worked for her before. I believe it s an extreme passive aggressive coping mechanism. She needs to appear to be the sympathetic victim to forgive herself. She ‘pushes’ anyone who ‘gets in her face’. When that person has had enough they retaliate or just go away. At which point she can claim total innocence and that person is removed. Dr. Drew or Jill or anyone reviewing the tapes should have seen this. The patients and their persons need to be protected in that environment but the staff members need protection as well when dealing with people who are potentially Very unstable.

  19. scott says:

    oh crud I kept getting an error code 500 I didn’t think my comment was posting. I thought my commentary was too long or something. Well you clearly know How I feel now Very sorry for the repetition.

  20. Courtney says:

    @ Candy: THANK YOU!!!!!!! Thank you for telling the truth unlike Dr. Drew and his therapist! I could NOT believe how Dr. Drew lied on Selma like that! I could not believe the absolute betrayal and how blatantly he lied to the rest of the group! I’m so glad the rehabbers can now see for themselves what really happened and they can (%!+@&__*%^`#`& ess for themselves and not take the crap that Dr. Drew fed them. So disappointed in Dr. Drew…so disappointed that he would just lie like that!

  21. MizzTra says:

    You know in this episode where Selma got fired. Due to administrative issues it was cool, but, during the whole time Kari Ann has been there she’s been talking to Selma like Selma is a dog. Kari Ann is very mean and something should of happened to her as well besides signing a document agreeing that she will be at all group meetings and if not she’s kicked out. This girl threw a vase at Selma. A person can only take so much.

    Kari Ann also made a comment regarding she can’t deal with ghetto people. What did she mean by that?? Is Kari Ann predjudice???

    Selma whatever you are doing at this time, I wish you the best.

  25. Kat says:

    I cannot believe that Dr.Drew fired Selma and kept Kari Ann. Selma was trying to do her job and she grabbed at Kari Ann’s shirt. That little b**** Kari Ann should’ve been kicked out. She threw the vase. Selma should have kept her job. I don’t see any fairness in this. What, did they keep her because it made “good TV”? Ha.

  26. Erika says:

    Kari Ann needs to go home!! I think that Selma should not tolerate abuse from ANYONE…addict or not. Katie, I think you are an ignorant donkey for calling Selma out of her name. People like you are why there is hatred in the world. She took nothing but abuse from Kari Ann week after week, and none of the other people on the show treated her like that. Being an addict is NOT an excuse for acting like a spoiled brat! The cow got juice brought to her every morning by the same woman she threw a vase at. I think it sucks that she got fired and Kari Ann didn’t get put off the show. I applaud Cristina for cussing her out. She deserved it. She was fired because of Kari Ann and Dr. Drew is a punk for not standing up for Selma and excusing Kari Ann’s behavior. Nothing happened to Kari Ann that she didn’t bring on herself. In the real world, she would get her a** kicked!

  27. Annamaria says:

    I totally believe that today’s episode was very unfair towards Selma. As much as I understand that KariAnne is a patient and is expected to sometimes be agressive, but everything put aside, she is a spoiled brat, who is constantly pushing people’s buttons, and provoking people, to get people do whatever she wants one by one, anf if it’s not her way, she’ll do the impossible to get you out!

  28. Jen says:

    I don’t think it is fair for the patients to side with Kari Ann. She provoked Selma and Selma’s natural reaction took over. I know Selma should have tried to be more professional, but after having someone push your buttons for weeks, something is going to give. I think Kari Ann is poison and doesn’t positively help the group. She should have been made to leave.

  29. Amanda says:

    Dr. Drew you and your therapy are a joke. Selma absolutely did get fired because of Kari Ann per se. I am not condoning what Selma did in anyway but to reward negative behavior like throwing a vase, refusing to participate in treatment and being generally disrespectful to your fellow housemates and the staff is RIDICULOUS!! Kari Ann should have suffered the same fate as Selma not get an apology from the group. You are enabling her to continue acting like a child. Bad things happen and if you are not willing to accept the help that is so readily available then there is nothing that anyone can do.

    For the reasons stated above I will no longer watch anymore shows that Dr. Drew. I have lost complete respect for you and I think you were wrong to hang Selma out to dry like that.

    Selma took responsibility for her actions, why does Kari Ann get off so easily

  30. Alexis says:

    Keri Ann is really quite the little manipulator if you really play close attention to her behavior.She thinks she is better than everyone else and has alack of self respect about herself.This lack of respect for herself she openly acts upon other and over step boundaries.Selma didn’t deserve that level of disrespect from a patient.Who should be committed to the treatment in the first place.Selma isn’t somebody’s maid or a target board to throw stuff at once someone is upset.Keri Ann really has a negative personality and energy that is very toxic to the group.I don’t think Keri Ann is mature or ready to handle group therapy but needs one on one.Keri Ann has very deeply disturb emotional problems and being in group therapy is only scraping the tip of the ice berg.

  31. Jessica says:

    Kari Ann either needs to leave or actually do !(!&)_!@#%~!(“` People have !(!&)_!@#%~!(“` ty things that happen to them during their lives and yes hers maybe a little more messed up then normal but still her life isnt the worst and why is she there if she isnt going to contribute i am sorry but kari ann was wrong and she should have been thrown out along time ago. She is a winny spoiled brat and thats her issue she needs to put her big girl pants on and realize the world doesnt revovle around her and either get help or leave dont threaten you’ll leave actually have the balls and leave!

  32. Katherine says:

    I hate Kari Ann! She’s a spoiled rotten B*tch. They should have kicked her off a few episodes ago. I only wish Selma had yanked off her ugly a**,poorly done extensions earlier. Selma tried to do the best that she could to get Kari the help that she needed. In this case, Selma is a martr. Hopefully Shelly gives Kari the beating she needs.

  33. Tameka says:

    I think that Dr. Drew and Jill whatever flat out lied about what happened. We all saw the tape and what they said happened was completely false. She did not yank her or push her into the room. Kari clearly threw that vase at her and she is luckly she didn’t provoke a worse reaction. She gets special treatment and is obviously there for the drama effect. If this treatment is suppose to be serious then she should be removed b/c she is distracting attention away from the patients who are truly there to get help. This FAKE clinic is a complete joke. A real clinic would protect their patients as well as their employees and procedures would be followed..but I guess when it’s tv you just make up your own rules as you go.

  34. Hali says:

    I believe that the staff exaggerated the incident between Selma and Kerri Ann. I think that Kerri Ann is a spoiled brat and a a racist. Granted Selma should not have put her hands on K A. On the other hand tell the truth (Jill and Drew)!! You know good and well that KA was not even intending to bring her flat behind to the group. She is playing everyone and I do believe her story will be tragic.

    Annoyed viewer.
    P.S.

  35. Katherine says:

    I hate Kari Ann. She is such a spoiled little b****. Someone should have pulled out her really terrible extensions a long time ago. I think Selma was a martyr in this case. All she was trying to do was get Kari Ann the treatment that she needed (even tho i think she belongs more in a mental hospital). It’s terrible that Selma had to be let go because she was defending herself and i think that this is no longer a show about people getting treatment, it has become a soap opera and Dr.Drew is just capitalizing on these people’s addictions.

  36. Kim says:

    I agree that she should have never put her hands on Kari Ann but I don’t think it is ok for all the blame to be put on her. Kari Ann was being a *$@#!+*~_&#+$~@+@ and she did throw a vase. And then she went to Dr. Drew and said she didn’t want to be around all these “ghetto” people. Just because she’s black does not make her ghetto. And then again I don’t think its fair that they went back and blamed everything on the lady. They didn’t tell the complete story and the story they told was skewed. So the “punishment” (if you can even call it that) for Kari Ann’s actions was signing a contract. She throws a glass vase at a woman and makes a racists comment and that’s it. Dr. Drew could have and should have done more.

  42. Seribabe says:

    I AM SO FURIOUS. While I do not agree with violence in any form I also do not agree with Dr. Drew and his staff for allowing Keri Ann to push hate and racism around like it was her badge of honor. She clearly has a problem with black women from Selma to the PCA Administrator. The proof “I’m tired of dealing with ghetto people.” Had Dr. Drew taken care of this problem with Kari Ann immediately Selma would still have her job. White people need to realize racism is a trigger for blacks(keri ann does) and apparently Keri Ann is smarter than Dr. Drew and his staff her whole goal was to get Selma “out of her face” permanently. I will never watch this BS show again. And possibly boycott vh1 for airing such a racist BS show without concern for their total viewership.

  43. angelina says:

    wow ok this is a tuffy hear me out as far as selma being terminated yes it seems unfair but when selma was hired for the job in which she was involed with unstable and otherwise unpredictible patients there is an understood oath that no matter what there can be no phyical contact with a patients…and more importantly sex addicts. and selma knew this and thats why when she left she handle herself with grace and pose regaurdless of the reason it happened…NOW as for KA, DR. D needs to have not sent her home but to have had her baker actted the first week she was their all of the signs are there for many diffrent issuse one of which is malidaptive behaivoral patterns and with that those needed to be addressed prior to sex rehab because she is not able to gain from this treatment yet.

  44. Roz says:

    For weeks Selma had to get Kari Ann juice and basically be treated like her servant. Dr. Drew should have known that this situation was boiling over and resentments were festering. He chose to ignore this and continue to let Kari Ann dictate and manipulate her situation without addressing or punishing her bad behavior. This episode clearly showed that the show is more interested in sensationalism. Because if Dr. Drew were interested in what was best for the patients, all patients, including Kari Ann,she would be gone. She is clearly not ready to make a committment to her recovery. She needs psychiatric help, not just sex rehab. Her problems are too deep and ingrained, at this point. But, you keep her there for the drama at the detriment of the other patients and now a staff member. I was truly saddened by what I saw in this episode. Dr. Drew and his staff handled this situation very poorly. Kari Ann got exactly what she wanted. It was clear when she started spouting “I don’t want her fired or anything”, ” I don’t want to write up an incident report”. Both Selma and Kari Ann should have had consequences to their actions.

  45. angelina says:

    now as far as Dr. D..weather or not he has something to gain personal or otherwise..as far as the lie, thats not true they as docters twist things in a setting to keep things to an even keal between others.. the patients needed the apology not for KA sake but more for there own to know someone they inner act with have be put in the situation where their personal physical boundiers crossed …………..NOWWWWWW as for VH1 they are gaining in a way that is wrong very wrong how dare they as a corperation run tv commercial spots with sexual seggestive products if there are people that are gainine from the show because they cant go to rehab or are to embaressed to say they have a problem just when they gain from it there addiction is thrown back in there faces and almost as if VH1 is taking the show as a crule joke…i dont have any addictions but i have lost many valued people in my life to addiction.. know that there are things that can set off a chain reaction in there minds…and we as sober people need to be mindful of those things..

  46. stacy says:

    Its so sad that Selma has been made the bad guy here. Kari Ann, has pushed and pushed Selma to that point, and she wonders why people abuse her??? I dont even know her and I want to slap her. Kari Ann is an evil, miserable human being!!!! She is basically a low rent nobody, who better hope she makes some money off this show because she will be working a street corner next time you see her, TRASH!!!!!!! I love how she said she was tired of these “ghetto” people??? ummmmmm, i wonder where she came from??

This is such a ratings ploy. She’s not there to get help. For some reason, though, she gets to stick around.

Oh, while we’re at it, let’s wing one at Jill. Kari Ann gets away with anything. Is she sleeping with the staff memembers? Seriously. While else would they keep her around? This is such a ratings ploy. She’s not there to get help. For some reason, though, she gets to stick around.
    Selma, if you’re reading this, if you don’t have an attorney yet, you need to get one. You were attacked at work. Seriously, you need to get some legal representation and sue the pants of these mo-fos.

  53. Tracy says:

    I was very offended by the show today because you lie to the patients about the whole incident and made Kari Ann seem like the victim and thats not right because i know selma never did anything like that perviously and until Kari Ann got there this happens she should have been written up and that’s it not fired and Kari Ann didn’t want to be there in the first place and she really needs to lose her whole world because then she realize the world doesn’t revolve around you

  54. Jennifer says:

    I am just waiting for one of the patients to turn around and knock kari ann in the face. that would bring so much enjoyment to me! if i ever run into that dramatic, annoying, and semi-retarted girl on the street i am going to give her a peice of my mind, and a good knock to the mouth. im glad that that staff member grabbed her gross greasy weave, im upset she didnt yank it a little harder! hats off!! if i had a vase thrown at me i would have ripped hair out of her scalp! i want her to get kicked off the show soooooo bad! she is a waste of air time VH1!! come on and do the viewers a favor!!

  55. Tia says:

    Honesty I blame this on Dr.Drew because we all saw this coming. Eventhough we know the patients have issues Kari-ann really showed her dislike and disrespect for Selma and nothing was done it was left to escalate to this point. Shame on you Dr. Drew!

  56. juncinda says:

    Its a shame when the employee’s don’t have the backing of the Administration…So what your saying is that its ok for the patients to say, do and act disrespectful with no backlash what-so-ever. But yet when the patient cross the line with a employee and they have a legitimate reflex to a BIG no no like threwing things at them. I’ve watched this show enough to know that she abuse all the staff verbally, but you cross the line when you threw things and you will get a reaction behind that. Threw something at a police officer and see what that gets you, then comment that wasn’t right cause you were in a saft enviroment … I think that because of what Ms Thing did to Selma, she should be able to press charges against her for throwing a vase at her or at the walls so she claim. It wasn’t called for reguardless. The Administration threw Selma under the bus with this and its just not fair…. oh, and did you noticed that Ms thing called Selma and her supervisor Ghetto people, What’s that all about??? That is offensive, because it was directed to the Black women that was trying to help her sorry tail, she didn’t react to the other patient that came in the room and comfronted her. mmmmm, I wonder why

  57. Dave says:

    What gets me is this spoiled little scab got a woman fired . This is her life not some game . I put the majority of this on Drew . He should have kicked her out along time ago . He allowed this to happen . Kari Ann is on the show to be famous and not get help .
    I am so glad that Drew allowed this little ))^^)^*%*&^^%!%`* to screw with someones real life . Drew is as much of a ))^^)^*%*&^^%!%`* as Drew is . Its not funny . Selma .. you should have beat this ))^^)^*%*&^^%!%`* es @^_&+))$`+(_#$% So now that the show is enabling her to be a ))^^)^*%*&^^%!%`* Nothing will ever get done .

  58. charlene says:

    You gots to be kidding me. This so called docter cares more about ratings and keeping washed up kari Ann on. Everyone was fustrated selma only acted just as human and fustrated as the staff and everyone else. This is sick you tell everyone else that their feelings means nothing compaired to Kari Ann. She is like the pampered queen of your show. And everyone else must jump but her. How is this helping the process of not releasing yourself through sex. And yes they have had to masterbate through this ordeal. You are hurting these people. I think they should pull the plug as one who specialize in this field. You even went as far as to lie on national t.v about What happened between Kari Ann and Selma. We all seen it. You just care about your self and ratings.. She wasn’t trying to get her books. She lied about being undressed, She said she didn’t want to go several times. She said she wasn’t going to the room late and she purposly made herself late. And you knew if those patients new the truth they would all leave. So you hid it because of ratings. But sad thing for you you lost a lot of viewers already. You preyed on these peoples emotions. You show you have no control over what you are doing and you are screwing them up mentally… And at times you can see your smirk when they are in pain like good for ratings. The people are real but you and your staff are jerks. Selma was the only one who was real. And she should have her own show. I hope she gets it too and I hope people avoid you and the nobody lady who works side by side to you. And Kari Ann she will screw over on you. She even said could she take down the new staff member. You are going to look stupiod in the end..

  59. james says:

    I don’t condone violence, however I clearly believe the decision to terminate Selma was unjust…Kari Ann has issues I give her that, but when is it ok to act like a total bi!#%h? when is disrespect and arrogance commended…apparently on this show… kari ann throwing objects at people extremely out of line..selma defending herself validated…grow up…recovery isn’t an excuse to be a sl)(t who#^…I won’t watch anymore…thanks

  60. Stephanie says:

    Selma is lucky to be away from that situation.

    Kari Ann has no future, none. This show will completely ruin any chance of her becoming successful. I would never by fashion with her branding on it. Maybe she can call Dustin Diamond and start up a reality show.

  61. Val says:

    Kari Anne is a B*TCH. I cant stand her I was hoping somebody whoop her A**. If she doesn’t want the help or to make effort step off. No ones gonna baby you spoiled B*TCH.

  62. Reagan says:

    Selma should have not been let go, that worthless rag Kari Ann who will be nothing but a has been teen (drag) queen. She should have been kicked out for failure to participate from day one. She is pathetic. She throws the freaking vase and the gal gets fired. Unacceptable! She is a spoiled brat who should be tossed out on her scraggly, rat haired keister. She obviously has no understanding of appreciation for anyone or anything. Good luck to all the rest of the folks who are actually trying to get their lives in order. Kari Ann is nothing more than a piece of trash!

  63. Alisha says:

    Selma said sheshould not had put her hands on her but she should not of put her hands on her when the patient (KariAnn) began to walk away but her apology should of been enough because that situation was the birth of the lack of support Selma had long experienced.Selma should not of been fired or repirmanded in anyway with treatement procedures had long not been followed, like it was just not oaky when she as a human being responded. Had that vase hit Slema it could of killed her. YOu throuw a rock at the police and they shoot to. Kari Ann is jealous and verbally and emotionally abusive to the other female patients. THE racism the patient (Kari-Ann) on SELMA WAS ALLOWED TO GO ON WAY TO LONG WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES FOR THE PATIENT AND SUPPORT OF THE STAFF. Did. Dr. Drew and his administrator and that #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ istant not realize that all of that illegal behavior inflicted upon Selma aired. I am disappointed with Dr. Drew for not taking a stand and for fostering that unhealthy situation that obviously damaged Selma and put her in stress. THE DRIVING MISS. DAISY ATTITUDE THAT THIS PATIENT ALLOWED TO TAKE WITH SELMA WAS REVOLTING AND WENT UNCHECKED YET DUALLY NOTED. EVEN THE CRIMINALLY INSANE ARE HELD TO A STANDARD OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY. SELMA FIRED. SELMA WAS AND HAD BEEN THE VICTIM. WHY WAS THE RACIAL, SEXUAL, PHYSICAL, AND ECONOMIC HARASSMENT SELMA ENDURED ALLOWED GOING UNCHECKED AND THAN WHEN SHE AS A HUMAN BEING BARELY RESPONDED SHE WAS FIRED? THAT SEX GROUP HAS SOME NICE GOALS AND MISSION BUT THE ILLEGAL AND DYSFUNCTION BEHAVIOR SELMA EXPERIENCED WAS HORRENDOUS THAN YOU ADD INSULT BE FIRING HER? DR. DREW AND THE ADMINISTRATOR WHO ALLOWED SELMA TO BE RACIALLY AND SEXUALLY HARASSMENT AND STRESSED BY THE PATIENT FOR A VERY LONG PERIOD SHOULD HAVE BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALLOWING THE MALTREATMENT AND ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR TO BE DONE TO SELMA. With the percentage of people in society impacted by friends, family and relatives who work or deal with being incarcerated, battling addiction, in therapy for numerous reasons or even dealing with violence in the schools. People in society today deal with all sorts of issues. The public at large is aware that prisoners would have unruly behavior and language at staff, juvenile delinquents have unruly behavior and language in treatment, or group homes, ill patients in chronic care can often have unruly behavior and language. The list goes on and on: the brain injured population, add/adhd, unruly students in general. My point is that I was taken back at the lack of support given to Selma throughout the show by the other staff. Clearly, the patient was not acting like a 13 year old as Dr. Drew suggested and Selma behavior was nowhere near, what this woman experienced as a child. The patients an ignorant racist and a contract should had been made or the treatment centers rules at least should had been made to be adhere to by this patient or she should had been expelled long ago. The patient appeared to gain a warped manipulated sense of power that she will later in life find useless and the need to address her need to victimize and abuse others. It was ill how she got support in abusing and manipulating the staff, the program, and Selma. She was only allowed to do so because staff must have really felt that Selma was not human along the racist lines of being an animal -expected to take all that was spewed on her was fine but with no correction, no validation of what was going on to Selma. You lost this viewer. I will no longer watch the program because of the chattel treatment Selma experienced. First, the rocker girl tried and other patients tried to #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ ist with how Selma was allowed to be illegally and dysfunctional treated to know avail. Human respect and decency is a requirement in all treatment facilities with all populations with the expectation of mental and emotionally ill patients acting irrationally. It was clear that Dr. Drew #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ istant Jill and Dr. Drew allowed this patient dysfunctional, hostile, verbally, emotionally abusive behavior and language laced with blatant racial epitaphs, and racism to continue because the staff thought the patients was funny and cute. Again, in many careers staff deals with such behaviors from recovering addicts and the sort. At every point, they supported and allowed Selma to be illegally harassed to the point where the patient noncompliance warranted for the patient to leave. Nevertheless, why were Selma and the program put to the side while the patient disrespected staff? We all saw the videos, and it looked real racist. Even from allowing, the patient to tell Selma to work out of her capacity and deliver her a drink was as a scene from Roots and Driving Miss. Daisy. The final insult to my eyes was when Dr. Drews #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ istant explained to the group that Selma had to go because she did something wrong to the patient when the patient herself and the camera revealed that patient continued to be wrong and the staff (not the other patients) the staff continued and supported this illegal behavior under the guise of withdrawal. NO even the brain injured has behavior modification and prisoners have tickets to hold them accountable and modify their behavior to the program structure. I am disappointed in Dr. Drew and not surprised with his #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ istants changing and belittling what the patient did as Dr. Drew’s staff laughed all season at the ill patients’ racism. The patient said they were wrong, and THE PATIENT had been wrong. MY POINT: Her coworkers DID not SUPPORT SELMA, they had not programming, and policies in place to protect their staff from this illegal, sick, and immoral behavior, but her coworker validated the bullying environment as okay, which screams: lawsuit. I WORKED IN A DRUG REHAB IN COLLEGE IN CASS CORRIDOR AT MARINERS INN IN DETROIT, I WORKED IN LEVEL 5 PRISON, I WORKED WITH THE BRAIN INJURED AND THESE AS WELL AS MANY OTHER POPULATIONS ARE STILL ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR AND PARTICIPATING IN TREATMENT TO REMAIN AND IN NOT DOING SO THEY FACE CONSEQUENCES. That PATIENT NEVER FACED CONSEQUENCES, IT WAS STRANGE HOW DR. DREWS #_~#$^)!&(~+@!@ ISTANT laughs and SNICKERED throughout THE PATIENTS DISRESPECTFUL AND RACIST COMMENTS AND TWISTED THE INCIDENT THAT WAS TAPED AND MADE IT SELMA FAULT. AS I SAID, EARLIER SELMA NEVER HAD STAFF SUPPORT BECAUSE THE STAFF DID NOT CARRY OUT THEIR JOB DUTIES TO THE PATIENTS.

    Kariann is a twit…girl get over yourself…you really are NOT all that.

  65. Kimberly says:

    RACIST,hateful,degenerate,low class, no class, spoiled, are just a sample of the characteristics that make up this horrible thing called Kari Ann.AFTER TONIGHT I WILL NO LONGER WATCH THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!HOW IN THE WORLD WAS SELMA MADE THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB FOR THIS thing(Kari Ann)? If it all an act with this patient I hope it feels good to sale your soul for T.V. I am so angry it is very difficult to write everything I want to say. Having DVRed the show and be able to watch the incident, I am at a total loss as to the explanation ( lie) Dr. Drew gave the group, it was, at best, extremely mis-leading. I liked Dr. Drew and had watched the previous rehab shows, I am shock to say the least at this episode, Selma apologized and regreted puting her hands the patient,and if was to be let go so be it (eventhough I wouldn’t agree with that at all). But to turn around a hoodwink the group was total mind-boggling, offensive, and unprofessional. I understand that addicts and people in recovery have challenges and need compassion and patience, but less be real this paitent above being disrespectful, self-ish and mean, shows racist views- her “GHETTO” comment wasn’t the first time.
    Lastly, where was Selma’s relief, where was Selma’s support and where was the rest of the staff that suddenly appeared on the show ( be mindful of all the editing)? I think i stop here I could go on but the think Jack, Alisha, Jennifer and the rest made alot the the same observations that I had.
    BOTTOM LINE: THIS IS MY LAST NIGHT WATCH THIS SHOW, I AM ANGRY, DISSAPOINTED, AND VERY SADDEN. IF SELMA HAD TO GO SHE DIDN’T DESERVED TO BE LIED ON AND EXAGGERATED ABOUT. DR. DREW I REALLY HOPE IT WASN’T FOR THE RATINGS AND IF YOU ARE A MAN OF HONOR I HOPE YOU CAN LIVE WITH THE WAY THAT WENT DOWN. [*Nicole thank you for saying what you said and for standing up when you knew something wasn't right-I hope you hold this position for the rest of the show, I won't know because I'm no longer watch it.]

  66. Kiandra in Austin, TX says:

    Wow. I am so disappointed in this show…

    I’ve been a dedicated Dr. Drew Pinksy fan ever since Mtv’s “Loveline” back in 1996 until the 2000s I think.

    And in this show, I was actually beginning to respect his female sidekick counselor, Dr. Jill Vermeire.

    And OK, I can understand that in most Rehab facilities, Staff are expected to supress putting thier hands on the patients; I get that…

    But let us not forget that also in most Rehab facilities, they also have unarmed guards dressed in cop-like uniforms who’s sole job is to protect the Staff in situations such as these.. In a normal Rehab environment, if KeriAnn threw a vase at the staff, the Unarmed guards would’ve most likely tackled her to the ground.

    So Dr. Drew, let us not even sit here and act as though you are running a normal Rehab… You even admitted in one of the earlier episodes of this season that in a normal situation, KeriAnn would’ve been released from the program due to her actions in the very first episode…

    Dr. Drew, you claim that it was out of your hands and solely the PRC’s (Pasedena Recovery Center) administrative decision to let Selma go; I get that and my first reaction was to defend you when a ton of people began to go off on you.

    But why is it that you allowed your Sidekick Jill Vermeire to TOTALLY LIE to the group about what happened? While she lied to the group, you just sat there and nodded your head as in agreement with the bogus claims that Vermeire made.

    Too many people have already addressed many of the same opinions I share with them regarding your seeing this situation boiling from day one. IE: lack of maintaining your “Professionalism” when you and Jill chose not to support the Staff, not identifying that KA’s mental issues were completely out of the scope of Sex Rehab program and actually enableing KeriAnne’s behavior these entire 6 episodes the list goes on and on etc..

    So my entire point of this post is to note that Dr. Drew, as sad as I find it to admit,

    YOU ARE INSULTING OUR INTELLIGENCE. I mean; did you %#(%^~@(&(*@“* ume that we are incapible of making our own sound judgements based off of the tapes? We saw the tapes too.

    I mean obviously you are smart. But to %#(%^~@(&(*@“* ume that your viewers were not intelligent enough to sift through the BS was a gamble that proved to be a sure loss.

    You are also seemingly beginning to sell-out to the commercialness of TV while your and Dr. Jill Vermeire’s actions speak volumes. Catering to ratings more than catering to your patient’s needs is quite disturbing
    AND IT DISCREDITS THE INTEGRITY OF THIS SHOW.

    Last but not least, I am waiting for Dr. Drew to finally release KA from the program for already breaking the rules on the same night of signing that new contract (by blaitantly not getting off of the phone after 11pm when it was 11:50).

    After enduring yet another sucky episode, IF Dr. Drew does not stick to his guns with KA for the very last time, THEN he has totally lost me as a viewer. How very sad.

  67. Scott says:

    I think I could be a lot more sympathetic to Kari Ann’s acting out if I felt that she was taking this opportunity that she as a bit more seriously. I would do most any thing for an opportunity to be on that show. She just seems to be pissing it away. I know she hurts but I cant see how she cant see the opportunity that is her’s to peek out from under her shell to see the help that is there for her. Possibly the whole confrontational aspect of her dealings with Selma hardened her up to that. The feeling I get though is that she is here for the wrong reasons… publicity.

  68. H Dinkins says:

    I feel badly for Selma and understand Dr. Drew’s decision. HOWEVER, my faith in Dr. Drew and Jill dwindled as they blantantly lied about the altercation between Selma & Keri Ann. They made Keri Ann sound like an angel to the residents as they explained what happened to Selma.

  69. Grant says:

    I’ve been watching sex rehab since the beginning and was pretty sure that the group would degenerate if administration didn’t set a more strict line on Kari Ann’s behavior instead of cater to her, as they’ve been doing. It took Selma getting fired before Drew finally did what he should’ve done much earlier. They’ve risked cohesion of the group and effective recovery of its members to try to help someone who has consistently shown that she doesn’t want or respect their help. In my opinion, Selma may have crossed the line, but Dr. Drew is responsible for allowing to go this far, and for Kari Ann’s behaviors to effect so many other people. In any group, its members will be controlled one way or another. Since Dr. Drew didn’t control the issue, he unknowingly has forced people in the group and other people who don’t have the power to make the tough decisions try to control it. Very poor decision making, I think.

  70. Susie says:

    I totally agree that Kari Ann should have gotten kicked off the show, but I think some of you are missing something here. It’s not just that staff are held to a higher standard. The incident was caught on video. PRC has a liability issue here – that’s why it’s an “administrative issue”. Their only recourse was to let Selma go so that they don’t get sued by Kari Ann later on! At most hospitals there are security people and people trained at de-escalation techniques (it’s almost like a “code blue” but for handling violent patients). It is a shame that that didn’t happen sooner. Selma had a responsibility to recognize that she was getting too wrapped up in a personality conflict (or manipulation) by Kari Ann. When Kari Ann got so bent out of shape, Selma should have taken herself out of the situation and had backup from another staffer to avoid this kind of physical confrontation. However, it should have earned Kari Ann some seclusion time, definitely!

    The PRC should have “administrative policy” that protects staffers from violent situations, too. Kari Ann should have gotten more than just a behavior contract. They’ve had verbal contracts that she’s ignored in the past!

    Selma, you’re a good person, just caught in a no win situation. 9 out of 10 people would have reacted to having something thrown at them!

  71. Sexiarn says:

    It is clear Dr.Drew has no control over these patients. I am curious is he doing random drug screens especially on Kerriann? She is clearly on some type of controlled substances, her behavior is erratic and unpredictable. Her speech is very slurred. If he terminated Selma then Kerriann should have been released as well. She needs restrictive care, if her plans to stop her sex addiction. I worked Psyche wards. Kerriann threw that vase at her and then lied. The “Psychologist”” supported this behavior. I am curious Dr Drew are you board certified, are you trying to help these people or trying to make ratings. Duncan is just a very unhappy gay man, who can not accept it. If you are a man and have sex other men, that makes you homosexual. Duncan first accept who you are and then begin your process.James I have so much empathy for you, they ganged up on you and Dr. Drew and the “Psychologist”allowed them, which would not be allowed in a therapeutic milleu (Dr. Drew do you know what that is). Amber, Nicole and Phil (Varone) I see you as potential success stories.

  72. Tdizzle says:

    I think the whole thing is a mess. Kari Ann should have been kicked out WAY before all of this crap even happened. I understand that there is a certain way to treat addicts, but there is also a certain way that patients should behave. Kari Ann has shown absolutely no interest in her recovery, and is only hindering everyone else’s progress. She is a spoiled brat, and the staff aren’t giving her any structure and just letting her run the show. She should have been asked to leave if not before this incident, then definately after. Also, the staff making the whole thing out like Selma kicked the crap out of her is very unfair. That woman has the patience of a saint, but even a saint has their off days. She should have been written up, perhaps even transferred to somewhere else, but her actions weren’t worthy of being fired. And the rest of the staff made it out to be much bigger than it was so the rest of the group would accept her. They should be ashamed and step up and grow a pair.

  73. Ann says:

    Dr.Drew, redeem yourself, by apologizing to Selma and offering her job back. I could understand giving Selma a warning, but firing her?? Really?? Kari Ann needs to know if you taunt the dog, you get bit. Her conquence for bad behavior was getting Selma fired and getting sympathy from some of the other numchucks. She will continue to treat people disrespectfully if she always gets her way. While Kari Ann continues to act out, Selma carries herself with dignaty. Selma told the truth and apologized. She was rewarded with loosing her job. Meanwhile, Kari Ann remains a socially ~^(`!&~%%+*%`$&*^& ed `**$^(#+&&+~~~^+_

  74. Pam says:

    I have never blogged before, but this incident led me to post. I too will no longer watch the show after tonight. Kari Ann has real issues that I think Dr. Drew is less concern with. He wants ratings and yes Kari Ann lied about throwing the vase and so did Dr. Drew and the chick. Dr. Drew and the producers also are bigots because Kari Ann called the two black women “ghetto” that is a racist comment and meant to hurt them. I am disappointed in the show and event if they do good this negative spirit is more apparent than the good. Kari Ann has real issues, demonic issues and I think she using this show to try and make a “come back”. But the devil never prevails, she will get her day. One thing I can say she has a great manager for her to remain on the show. Justice will prevail! Hang in there Selma because you didn’t need to be around that negativity. Dr. Drew Sex Rehab Show you have no integrity, character, and humanity. Throwing a vase at someone is WRONG! You should listen to your viewers, because you could be without a job next season. Think about.

  75. matt says:

    Everyone that watches this show knows that all of the participants are only on the show for publicity. This is the only reason why Kari Ann is on the show. Fortunately, Kari Ann was a nobody before the show, and will be a nobody after the show. I hope she enjoys her 5 minutes while it lasts. Would someone grow a backbone and put Kari Ann in her place?

  76. Natasha says:

    The show was good up until today and I will not continue to watch it because of the blatant lies on Selma. They obviously did not watch the tape again. Lets start from the beginning… that b**** Kari Ann should not still be there.. she doesn’t participate and one thing Selma and the rest of the crew did wrong was give her the special treatment. Non of the others were able to get juice in bed.. you are not running a bed and breakfast. In a Mental Institution, I don’t believe that the patients have a choice of wether to take their meds or decide when they want to go to sleep… right!?!? But back to the episode at hand… I agree with Jack… get a lawyer and sue the pants off them…not only did she try to attack you they also lied to the rest of the patients. Let me give you the rundown of what was shown… Selma was doing her job trying to get her (#*#&~^($`%!`#` ets up for group, Kari Ann acted like a baby(as usual) and cussed and told her to get out of her face (which in my opinion they should start sending dr. drew or his (#*#&~^($`%!`#` istant)so when she finally gets up, they kinda get into it (very understandable when thats what you have to deal with on a daily)but this time Kari Ann picks up the vase and throws it.. AT Selma…Yes THROWS IT AT SELMA.. come on.. that is an attempt to do bodily harm…so a hair tug is light compared to what I would have done honestly and really it looked like it was just reflex. Then she really left her alone to talk the same mess before. Nicole was right to say what she did and I know she knows the real deal. Maybe dr. drew should have showed them the footage instead of just telling them. But in the end Kari Ann should not have remained there.. you should have sent her home. Why write a contract so she can break it. I hope this new woman is worse than Selma.. kari ann is not gonna make it.. send her home and get someone that is deserving on the show that wants to make a change. But i’m done with this show.

  77. Kahshanna says:

    I just watched the show for the first time and saw the interaction between Selma and the patient. To have solid and trustworthy group therapy on television, in and of itself is a miracle. There is such a private dynamic. That, then blended with those limits being pushed that make reality docu-dramas go from mundane to ‘magic’. The truly unfortunate issue it seems Selma’s employers owe her are an exploration of what happened such as revisiting a masters course or workshop focusing on what that is about for her. Also, as an African American woman, I think people don’t remember that for some of us that do make it in the very structured professions, for many African American women, it is ‘do or die’ due to conditioning over the years. On the flip side, I was at a training course for the work I do…a staff member forgot herself and grabbed me with force to physically put me where she wanted me to be out of frustration. In a way, the opposite happened because she was supported when I share the story with higher ups…it was very hurtful to me, though I didn’t quickly put two and two together, it gave me nightmares and a stomach ache because it surfaced my own violent upbringing. It is never ok. Even now, I am, I feel, still looked at suspiciously for speaking up for myself and it is something I have to face and deal with as a woman who decided to stand her ground. Seeing how focused Selma was on getting that gal into group, I wonder what objective she was given by her employers in regards to the show…what did they tell her was ok and not ok? In these type of shows do they suggest to flirt with disaster? What history does Selma have with violence and physical respect and is that why she was chosen…to make sparks but not flames? Wow, I hope for healing and closure for all: I don’t envy the amount of ‘raw’ change calls for, but I have been there. I’d join but I don’t think it’s a show for people who never or rarely have sex, lol!

  78. Natasha says:

    Are you kidding me!?!?! Where do I begin…I don’t know if I should say it but I really think it she is racist. She didn’t act as crazy to dr drew and his %`&!^_~+&%!^*@% istant like she did Selma oh and mind she had a nasty attitude to he admin %`&!^_~+&%!^*@% istant as well (who is african american). Honestly Selma had no support from the staff. It was her that was left to deal with Kari Ann… it is a shame when you have the other patients talking about kari ann and how she is getting special treatment. Yes i will say that nobody should have started with that juice in bed incident.. they were wrong on that part. Also they dont’t need to give her an option of going to group sessions.. what the heck did she think this was when she signed up for it.. ya kari ann.. this is a boot camp!! But let me put it this way, these are patients.. in a rehabilitation center. Just like patients in a mental institution, they have a time to wake up, Breakfast is at this time, they have groups to attend, they have a set time for medication and activities and a time when its lights out. Point blank… you get no options.. can you imagine a mental ward with options?? no rules and regulations lead to chaos. They are not running a bed and breakfast here. I felt bad for Selma the first day with dealing with kari Ann.. its already hard to have someone talk to me the way kari ann does to Selma, that girl even talks to the rest of the staff.. but not in the same severity as Selma. She stated plenty of times that she didn’t want to be there.. so why keep her… why deny a chance for someone who wants to get over their addiction.. cause she doesn’t seem like it. My motto.. can’t give help to someone who doesn’t want it!! Not to mention she is affecting the learning strategy of the others.

    Now back to this episode… from the beginning.. Selma (who had no help or support from the other staff) as usual was trying to get Kari Ann up for group.. Kari ann did all her back talking and name calling as usual and sure they went back and forth.. as they usually do. Nothing new there, which means Selma would have never put her hands on her UNTIL this time she wants to take it a step further and through a vase.. A HEAVY A$$ VASE PEOPLE!!! at Selma.. which by the grace of God it didn’t make contact with her otherwise this show would be canceled I would hope. So after watching a vase being thrown at you.. all she did was tug at her hair and put her in her room. Now if I was the person that had a vase thrown at me, it would not have been such a nice episode.. sure I would have given them a reason to fire me. But she was very professional about it and actually walked away. Then Kari Ann going to cry wolf to Dr. Drew and staff saying she scratched her and did all his to her.

    Now the problem.. you can play the film back how ever many times you want to…. you will see that KARI ANN THREW A VASE AT SELMA AND SELMA JUST TUGGED HER HAIR IN A REFLEX ACTION WHEN SOMEONE IS TRYING TO CAUSE BODILY HARM. Which is what anyone would have done. You could put dr. drew in that same situation and I bet he would have at least pushed her to her room or got all in her face. But my issue is to let Selma go because of it? Why is kari ann not leaving also? you talk about how you normally would let patients go when a situation happens like this… so WHY IS SHE STILL THERE?? Ya of course for tv ratings… but then you make her sign a contract, why? so she can break it? Im sure she signed a contract to be on the show.. she might even have broken every rule on it by now. So why make her sign another one just to break it? You went to all that schooling just to forget about the common sense knowledge?

    I will give it up for nicole because she sees straight through kari ann and called that B**** out on it.. she knows what happened… until

    The third problem was the lie that was told to everyone… come on.. we all saw it.. don’t sit up there and commit like a defammation of character on Selma. She did everything she was supposed to plus some. The girl in the long black hair should have known what was going on.. Are you really going to take kari anns side and not ask or see the video footage. Ohh ya the doctors didn’t wanna run that back to them did they?? Didn’t wanna show what really happened huh?? i wouldn’t have been so easy to take the side of kari ann cause everyone knows she is in the wrong. I can’t believe that everyone was like “we apologize for accusing you”. That made me sick. Nicole though might still have her doubts but everyone was sooo apologetic. Ms. long black hair should know how Kari ann is as i believe didn’t they get into it a couple of times on the show?? ya.. movin on

    My final word on this is I am very disappointed with the show. This will be my last episode watched because of how they did Selma. Why keep someone here that is a poison to the other group.. I will say it again.. you can’t help anyone that doesn’t wanna be helped. She said she wants to go home send her home.. get someone on there that wants to change, that wants to step out of their addiction and become a new person. The group is trying, but its hard when the own doctor is showing preference to one person, and that person has the nerve to not even want to be helped and can’t even take off their makeup when everyone else can. Selma if your reading this.. i agree with everyone on here for you… get legal action.. plus your at an advantage.. you have video proof of what happened from the beginning leading up to the termination. Also I commend you on exiting like a true Lady because I would have had some words for everyone in that building from the patient all the way up to admin!!!

    Selma,

    Law suits are at every corner of this situation.

    Namely, defamation is written all over this, but particularly in two areas: (1) where Dr. Drew and Jill told the group their version of the altercation between Kerri Anne and Selma, and (2) Jill’s blog comment. In both situations, blatant lies that could not have nearly been mere mistakes (it is quite clear that Kerri Anne walked BACK to the table for the specific purpose of GRABBING the vase and LAUNCHING it toward Selma) were told to patients and viewers. Selma, you have been painted as a violent person, and I would highly suggest considering legal action.

    Also, the lack of proper training given to you before taking this job, as expressly admitted by Jill in her blog, put you in DANGER on the job. Had you received the proper training, you probably would have handled the situation more professionally. That’s another lawsuit.

    Bottom line: go seek legal services because at least two legal infractions appear to have been committed against you by Jill, and Dr. Drew.

    Best wishes,

    It was tough to watch this episode of Sex Rehab. Thus far we have seen Kari-Ann be nothing but a child. The only time this woman ever seemingly acted like a normal adult was when she spoke about her past issues of rape. Even then she could not keep a smile off of her face. Kari-Ann is definitely there for all the wrong reasons and that showed from day one. So far, everytime an altercation turns up she threatens that she is going to leave. I wish she would do all the viewers a favor and do just that! I enjoy watching the interaction between everyone else on the show. I truly believe those people are sex addicts and looking for legitimate help. Kari-Ann just wants camera time.

    I understand she is good for ratings and it makes people want to talk and write about the show. However, there is a line being crossed. You don’t need a complete moron whose only care in the world is the fact that she needs her make-up and hair weave on. She does not set a good example for anyone, and is honestly another bad image for women.

    Dr. Drew needs to release this woman at once. She has not only broken the rules set by the rehabilitation center, she also gets rewarded for it. This is not helping her that everyone gives in to her every living need.

    Selma helped this girl from the beginning. All she did was want the best for her and wanted her to learn how to follow the rules. Selma even took juice to her when she was too lazy to get out of bed. Catering to a person like this is not going to help them in the long run. They’re going to think its acceptable and will test their limits. Her excuses for everything is also getting a little tiring. How many times do we have to hear “I don’t want to go to group, I don’t have to”. This attention `@$@&~$`!))@&*~#$ is nothing but trouble, and if I was in Selma’s shoes I can’t say I would have reacted any differently when she had the vase thrown at her. Yes, it’s against policy and nobody should put their hands on anyone. The road is a two way street though, it’s not acceptable for Kari-Ann to throw a vase at Selma either. Yet, Dr. Drew just slapped Kari-Ann on the hand and sent her on her way. Selma lost her source of income and will probably have a harder time getting back into the rehabilitation/psychological field again.

    I pray that this new woman, Shelly “The Shark”, can put this girl into her place. I hope that Dr. Drew follows through with enforcing his little hand written contract with Kari-Ann; that if she decides not to attend their group meeting anymore that she will be kicked out of the program.

    I’m going to have a hard time watching this show from now on. However, my interest is really seeing the people who are there seeking help to get through the program and to better themselves.

    Was watching the show last night and saw that Selma was fired totally wrong call on Dr.Drew.s part he should have thrown Kari ann out long ago that _@+~!+^#*&@*+$^`! has not shown any respect to any of the staff that i have seen since the show started. What she needs is a dose of reality and grow up. Yes im sorry that she had such a bad childhood but that does’nt give her the right to be such a self centered oh feel bad for me im all ways being picked on little _@+~!+^#*&@*+$^`! Dr. Drew should have seen this coming but what i took from the dismissil of Selma was like he was more interested in the money he was gonna lose if he threw kerri ann out. I get the NO CONTACT rule but that cry baby just pushed and pushed she pay’s attention to nobody on staff not Dr. Drew or Jill she tells them what she thinks they want to here and walks away. Get ride of her so the others can work on there own issues with all the drama keri ann puts out that can’t happen. As for Selma she should be hired back and put it right in Keri ann’s face SEE you dont always get your way. Selma is no dope shes a good looking woman and she has alot of talent smart and she will do good for her self in the long run. I for one would hire her in a heart beat. This comes down to the point that pasadena treatment center does not want a lawsuit on there hands from the tramp Kerri ann

  88. Staci says:

    It seems clear to me that KerriAnne is mentally ill. She needs a different type of therapy that is being offered. She is hostile, defiant and abusive toward others and has no empathy or concept of consequences. She behaves like an irrational, immature child as reasonable adults are trying to negotiate with her. It is ridiculous. Is was long overdue that she be removed from the show. The show cannot save everyone and it’s important for her and others like her see that they must accept consequences. I applaud Dr. Drew and his staff for finally exiting her.

  89. Hische says:

    Just wait — Kari Ann is now going to be on Dr. Drew’s “Celebrity Rehab”. SERIOUSLY?? Does he think she has changed her ways? I’m not a violent person but I swear if I was in that house, I would have shoved her face through the glass door the first day she demanded juice before she would get out of bed!!

  90. Dana says:

    I don’t usually watch shows like “Sex Rehab..” because like most “reality shows” they’re far from convincingly “real”. But I tuned in for this one twice just to see if maybe I’d been too hasty in judging. Well….I wasn’t.

    This “Kari-Ann” individual from the get-go has been unwilling to cooperate with the requirements of the program. Her infantile behaviour should have been nipped in the bud right from the start. She won’t go to group? Automatic release from treatment! They sign a contract don’t they? If they can’t live up to their agreement, they should be shown the door. Either you’re serious about your recovery program, or you’re not. If Kari-Ann doesn’t work the program, she should be out.

    Forget the refusals, the denials, the swearing, the verbal harassment. It should have never come to the point of her throwing a vase at a member of the staff! Staff should not have to strong arm anyone to participate in the program. Selma didn’t sign up to be verbally and physically !%%*_()&*#^$@%$ aulted, no matter what abuses Kari-Ann suffered as a child. In a real recovery situation, this never would have happened, because Kari-Ann would have been terminated long before it ever came to that.

    The producers of this show and “Dr. Drew” owe the other participants in treatment and the viewers who are watching an apology, because we tuned in to see what the real recovery process is like, and this…isn’t it.

  91. Lucky Charms says:

    I hated Kari Anne, but did we all watch the same episode? Selma was wrong, no matter what. Kari Anne was wrong, no matter what.

    When did Drew or Jill lie to everyone? It’s on tape, who needs to lie about anything?

  92. PATH says:

    Ugh!!! Kari Ann will be on celebrity rehab. From the previews looks like she will be up to her old behaviors. I hope Heidi Fleiss and McKenzie Phillips put that little girl in her place FAST!!
