Doc Gooden: Lenny Dykstra Tried To Bust Me Out Of ‘Celebrity Rehab’

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Dwight “Doc” Gooden will highlight the Season 5 cast of Dr. Drew Pinsky’s “Celebrity Rehab.” But he wasn’t the only troubled 1986 Mets great to grace the sober house.

According to Dr. K, Lenny Dykstra made an uninvited appearance to try and break his former teammate out.

“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.”

LISTEN: Gooden details Dykstra’s “Celebrity Rehab” rescue mission

Dykstra made headlines last month stemming from an alleged naked massage endeavor while interviewing a housekeeper.

“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.'”

It’s not clear whether Dykstra’s rescue mission will air on the VH1 reality show.

“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.”

    Doc doesnt seem to have much of a drug and alcohol problem as compared to his problem of being targeted and racially profiled by those racist,hick cops in Fla. They love to catch the ‘big fish’ and then watch as our ‘fair’ judicial system makes examples out of them by incarceration. Welcome to our new ‘polically correct’ police state. Doc should be respected and left alone. Same with Straw.How about Koosman? Its not enough to make him pay up (war taxes) but 6 mos in jail at taxpayer expense is ridiculous and all Americans should be embarrassed. Our Gov’t needs REHAB from POWER ADDICTION. What a messed up country. our sports heros are mortal human beings with issues like the rest of us.LEAVE,EM ALONE

  • Mr. T

    Its time for a name change for this sorry excuse of a team. Past & present, its been nothing but one embarrasment after another, (especially now with the owner trashing whats probably the only good players on the team) How about the N.Y. Mutts??? (And, you are a thief Mr. Wilpon, no matter how much you try to divert the attention away from you with these baseless remarks about some of your TOP players..everyone KNOWS You knew what you were into ALL along!!!)
