Lenny Dykstra tried to break Doc Gooden out of rehab

While appearing on WFAN’s Boomer & Carton radio program on Tuesday, former Mets pitcher Dwight “Doc” Gooden said that Lenny Dykstra tried to break him out of rehab during the shooting of Season 5 of Dr. Drew Pinsky’s “Celebrity Rehab” television show.

From Flopping Out.com:

“Actually, Dykstra came to visit me on ‘Celebrity Rehab,’” Gooden told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Tuesday. “I’ll tell you what, it was crazy. He thought that I had been hypnotized and (Dr. Drew) got me in there and was holding me hostage. He tried to come in with two guys to get me out of there” [Gooden on WFAN this morning].

“So they come in. I’m talking to him, he wanted to talk, ‘Doc, I don’t like this.’ So we go out on the patio, me and him and the two guys are sitting there, we’re talking.

“He said, ‘you sure this is what you want?’ I go ‘yeah.’ He goes, ‘I don’t know, I don’t feel good about this … let me take you bags and if you don’t like it, you call me.’ I was like, ‘trust me, I’m cool.’”

“This is not part of the show. This is real stuff,” said Gooden. “Whether they got it (on video) or not, I’m not sure.”

I’m sure they caught it on film and will be airing the scene so they can cash in on the exposure. If not, then Dr. Drew needs to hire a new director and production crew to shoot his shows.

Tell me a collaboration piece on Dykstra, Gooden and Darryl Strawberry from their days with the Mets wouldn’t be an absolutely fantastic read. You can’t. You can’t tell me that that wouldn’t be one of the most interesting reads of the decade.
