Reality TV Star Dies Surreal Death

Posted on | August 18, 2012 | 14 Comments

Joey Kovar became a “star” (as stardom is measured nowadays) on the 2008 season of MTV’s Real World and subsequently appeared in the 2010 season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

Kovar died Friday at age 29 after ingesting cocaine, alcohol and Viagra, according to TMZ.

Viagra? What kind of 29-year-old needs Viagra? Perhaps the kind of 29-year-old who becomes famous for being famous, without ever demonstrating any actual ability or talent.

    Everybody’s changing their format. What’s up with that?

    While coke dialates the blood vessels, alcohol constricts ’em. After heavy use of both, the vessels resist responding, thus the need for Viagra – but these dummies forget that it was originally used to treat heart disease.

    I hope you are speaking from education and not experience Bob.

    Some people stutter when they speak, others when they type.

    It’s a treatable condition: take two blondes and call me in the morning.

    If one’s been around at all, he would have heard of both “coke dick” and “whiskey dick”. Coke-and-whiskey dick must be especially disappointing, if one is 29 and having a hell of a party. The Viagra would seem essential.

    Some are born formatted, some achieve formatted-ness and some have formatted-ness thrust upon them.
