Drew stands by his actions in the altercations with Courtney and Matt.

So Eliot the dog is on the road to better health with Tara. I have to say, Tara is the Mother Teresa of dogs in Dallas. CoCo was a rescue dog I got when I lived in California, and I'm very grateful for her. She is wonderful! I just had to praise Tara for her selfless work helping animals in Dallas.

Dinner at Daylon's! Let's talk about Courtney's comment that, "People are so eager to fall in love". Love is powerful. It feels good when you are newly in love. Everything is wonderful, and I feel happy when I'm falling in love. It makes me feels like an energetic 18-year-old kid, and I love it. Maybe I'm addicted to falling in love, and it might be an issue for me. Honestly, Courtney, I don't freaking care. I feel like Courtney's comments about love and relationships are coming from a very conservative perspective. Courtney gives me the impression that she is too wound up. Honestly I feel like she needs to be unwound.

Also keep smoking. I love to see you in an interview and then see you take a drag. Smoking is cool. Don't forget that

I only have a short comment, Drew and it has nothing to do with the situation between you and Courtney or you and Matt. I have been clean and sober since July 4, 1989. What I have learned is that my sobriety is my responsibility. Why would it be Matt's responsibility to remember that you don't drink? And why are you so sensitive about it? JUST SAY NO AND MOVE ON. Your issues with Matt have nothing to do with drinking.

Courtney and Matt deserve each other. Only the two of them would be able to see " that bigger than life " picture they paint themselves to be and to stroke each others personalities. Of course you want love, we all do. I am a Christian and God made us humans out of love and put the need for love and to give love in our hearts. It should make us happy. I wish you this happiness with the love of your life.

"He needs to lose the dumb jock mentality" your words. i will keep this short and sweet. You need to look inside yourself and resolve your own issues before going and chopping everyone heads off. You just sit there and judge people and think of all the wrongs they're doing to you. Not saying that anyone is perfect on the show, but you seem very hard to be around. good luck with the self, hope you find peace.

Hi Sweetie, My take on Courtney is not that she dislikes you, but dislikes herself. She has much work to do before she will have the ability to be where she hopes to be in life. It takes work, you know that more than the rest. Having to fight with food as well as alchohol is unimaginable for most. It is the most difficult thing in the world when you explain it rationally. You have to control the things that keep you alive so you can live. Emotionally I would probably be blowing my cool too. Drew....Please never say the C word again. Take it away from your vocabulary just as you would the words that would hurt you the most. You are so handsome and have such a big heart. Saying that word to a woman gives people the wrong idea about you hun. xoxo

I just wanted you to know Drew that you are my absolute favorite person on this show. I love that you always put Courtney in her place. She seems like one of the mean girls in school at times. I love that you bring this show down to reality. You, Glen, and Neill are the ones who make the show worth seeing. Without you three the show would be another pretentious reality show that floods the airwaves. Keep being you no matter what!

I am not a fan of Courtney or Matt. But, when you start using names to get a point across you come across just as superficial as they are. I agree with many of the posters that the cigarette smoking is a bit much. Did you take up smoking as you were giving up drinking? Or do you smoke so you won''t eat as much? I think you are still finding yourself, your voice. You need to step out of your comfort zone and into a new group of healthier people!

You are one of my favorites on the show. However, the way you talked to Courtney on the last show was NOT OKAY. I don't blame you for getting upset with her and losing your temper and I GET how maddening she can be - although I like her she is totally rude and never lets anyone finish a sentence when she is around because she is too interested in interjecting her feelings and thoughts on them before they can even finish what they are saying. A man should NEVER talk to a woman the way you talked to her and the "C" word DOES need to be removed from your vocabulary forever. Still love you though.

I must say that not wanting to lend your name to a charity for fear of backlash from the community is bizarre at best! It is a charity, not a way to look good in the community! If you truly wanted to help, you would lend your name and money without question. I do wonder if the HCG you inject yourself with may be clouding your judgement and emotions.

I just caught up on the show a couple days ago, and I have enjoyed you on the show. However, going and using the c word in your argument with Courtney was on the lowest things you could have done. I think you need to realize that both you are in the same boat considering you are both in love with people who seem to be moving forward with out. Give your opinion and let her know you disagree but come on be adult about it. You go around throwing bigger hissy fits than most children have ever done. I agree with you when it comes to Matt he comes across as very self absorbed and it doesn't seem as though he does anything without some form of personal gain. You still could have handled it with much more class than you did.

Just started watching and for the most part enjoying the show. Drew, you are a sensitive soul, and wear your feelings on your sleeve. Please, for all of us, quit whining all the time, and more important then that, Stop Smoking! You conquered one demon, alcohol, now conquer the Nicademon! Find a Nicotine Anonymous group in your area and put those butts down! I did, after 35 years and now with lung disease. The message you send by smoking on tv isn't a good one, back in my day, at your age, every movie, tv show had people smoking, we were taught it was okay, it's not. You are an example to many people with your charity work, so take time for some charity for you, lost weight, quit drinking, Please Please Quit Smoking!

Just started watching the show, and for the most part enjoying it. Drew, you are really setting a poor example by smoking, People are trying to quit, need to quit and for health reasons have quit. Smoking actually increases the desire to drink as they go hand in hand as they say, so maybe quitting would further your resolve to remain sober. You are the only person I've seen on tv in years unless it's an old money that is smoking and every episode you have cig in your mouth. You quit drinking, so now quit smoking, try Nicotine Anonymous, that was a great help to me.

I really enjoy watching you and all that you add to this show, Drew. You're not only adorable, but you're perceptive and willing to speak the truth. I don't think the majority of this group are people whom you would choose as friends--they're shallow, self-serving and extremely narcissistic. I appreciate your emotionalism, and so admire your weight loss, as well as the fact that you quit using alcohol. That says a lot about your character. Please continue to be yourself, and love is sure to find you. As for Courtney, don't bother. She just doesn't get it.

Drew , I like you . I think you have a big heart also . And you have a sane rfriendship in Tara . You both love to be in LOVE . And that is a great thing ! I feel that you , because of your weight loss . May still feel a bit lost , or maybe insecure . And you feel that others feel about you , how you feel about yourself on the inside ? I see lots of hurt and sadness in your eyes . Work on yourself , LOVE YOURSELF . Because others do ! Courtney is a lost individual . . . .she's afraid to put herself out there . And let others in . So she stays closed up . And when she sees others have what she wants . She's quick to shoot 'em down . If you can't offer Courtney something . . . what ever it is that she needs at the moment . Then she doesn't treat you with respect . . . . That goes for anyone it seems . You keep being you . . . . Cause I like you . . . : )

I agree a lot with "Viewer MPls" had to say! congrats on your sobriety I really like you! however... You often say "I don't fit the mold of what Courtney or Matt's ideal person is, or don't fit in"..... In your Bio you share you lost over 100 pound (terrific).. I think YOU still see yourself as the "the fat guy"... I think that causes a "chip on your shoulder" I have battled weight issues and a lot of pain/hurt/humiliation can come with being overweight and now being one of "the pretty people of Dallas" I think is hard to accept- I think you still feel like the "fat kid" and you think the "pretty people" will turn on you ? You look great, do you still have body issues that may cause self doubt-hence the defensiveness ? Am I way off base here? Has anyone else considered/noticed this?

Drew I think that you are an amazing guy. I love watching this show because mostly you are in it. I am also a gay man in Texas so I support you on that note. LOL. I am glad that you are very vocal and expressing your feelings. I believe that Courtney does take advantage of you and doesnt take a chance to get to know you on a personal level. Courtney to me is lost and cant seem to get over Matt. I believe Matt is to self absorbed and mostly do feel that the charity is for personal reasons and not devoted to a good cause. But, I admire you for everything you have been through and for the commitment you have made to inhance your life. Also, as for love for you I know that you are very much in love with Cody but dont think he feels the same for you. You are an amazing guy I think you will soon find someone who adores you for you.

Drew.....have you ever heard the expression that what you don't like about other people is what you don't like about yourself? Please for the love of your sanity, REWORK your 4th step & let go of all that pent-up resentment.

Good for you DREW!! Seems like you are the only one who says it like it is. People don't like to hear the truth and good for you for being real!! It seems like these people are not real friends. Real friends understand the importance of staying sober. Keep being you Drew!!

Drew,

You have been very vocal about the money that your family has "come into" over the past 15 years. You also have told us that your family is well respected in the community for your charitable contributions. What I don't understand is that we the viewers have seen you disrespect and degrade your castmembers. I understand not agreeing w/someone's views or not liking the fact that Court is so passionate about different topics that she talks over people. What you dont see from your castmates (so far) is a pure hate for the person in front of them as you have done many times this season. You might not be sorry for the way you acted w/Courtney and Matt but be grateful that there are people like the two of them that recognizes their mistakes and try to make good on them. Focus on the positive and try to remember that it's not about you it's about helping those less fortunate. I hope as you travel through your time on reality t.v. that you find your inner peace. Best of luck and congrats on your sobriety.

Your assessment of Matt's charity event was spot on. As a viewer, it was uncomfortable watching his blatant self-promotion under the guise of "doing it for the kids." You said it all except for, "He's doing this because the cameras are rolling." Didn't like you much in the first couple episodes, but thanks to your honesty, you're now my favorite. Keep telling it like it is!

Drew...all I could think about when you were in your pity party about many things is get out of yourself. The only one making a big deal about you being an alcoholic is you. Your sobriety is up to your friends, its up to you. Maybe go to a meeting. I do like you, quit whining.

DREW YOU RULE!!!! Stay strong with the drinking thing-- it's really hard to do that especially when douche-lords (ahem Matt) are there tempting you. The fact that you refrain from connecting the oh-so-obvious dots with regards to Courtney's behavior proves your class. If she followed your lead and laid off the booze, maybe she wouldn't find herself with her foot in her mouth so often.... hmmmm..... #drew4evah

STAY STRONG DREW!!!! You're so much smarter than the rest of those folks. You also showed class by refraining from connecting the dots about Courtney--- if she took a line from your book and laid off the booze, I bet she wouldn't find her foot in her mouth so often. KEEP IT UP DREW!!!!

You proved to be quiet insecure and arrogant with the B bomb and C bomb. If you don't have control over your emotions and just spit things out as you think them, perhaps you should consider buying a thesaurus and/or hire an expert to sit you down and teach you some manners. Maybe Courtney was obnoxious, but that does not give you the right to name call. Your lucky she didn't literally, walk all over you.

Drew, I do admire you; however, when you have to lower yourself - you are down to their level. Never go there - always maintain your dignity. You keep yourself above that and you come off looking like the better person, which you are. Just continue to say 'no thank you' when offered a drink by those that have memory problems and continue to be ignorant. You are what you are because you have risen above and have become this wonderful man - don't lose your temper over childish actions. Show others how ignorant they are by your actions - simply walk away.

There is never a justification to call a woman that ever. Man up and use your words. I mean people who have to resort to that demeaning language are either uneducated and have no vocabulary or they are just a coward because they have to hurl around foul language instead of sitting the person down and discussing how they feel.

I would not keep watching this show if it wasn't for you!! Well, actually, I would because I love both you and Neill. I somewhat like Tara and Glenn, and can not stand watching Matt and Courtney!! You were totally right about how much of a self absorbed SOB Matt is, and Courtney is exactly the same, they are perfect for each other. Glad you finally called Matt out for repeatedly offering you alcohol. Of course he acted as if he didn't know, kudos to you for not making him look like the total fake fool that he really is!! Please keep in mind that the majority of viewers are intelligent enough to understand when people are either authentic, or "faking it"!!

Drew, Drew, Drew......to much a drama queen. You react to violently in your words. It's okay to disagree or have a differing opinion but to attack somene rather that sitting down and talking it out with someone just shows that you don't think to logically or realistically about things. It's okay not to be a part of Matt's charity event you could have just said I'm not interested at this time, I would like to see how it all plays out before I agree to committ to anything. Believe me Matt was wrong for his drink comment, that was a low blow itself. We all know courtney is over the top and is living in her own little world but to attack her with such words like that is just disrespectful to anyone and really only makes you look bad not her. Drew you need to chill because you're just making a bad name for yourself, I was on your side but not as much now as I was before after all that drama.

I agree with you on Matt. Frankly, everything about him twists me the wrong way. His relationships with women is based around feeding his ego; he wants a fan club, not friends. I don't really feel his passion for anything except himself. Coco is similar. Fashion and herself, and herself in fashion.

I felt you were completely justified in telling Courtney off and quite frankly the B word went through my mind while I was watching her constantly interrupt and over-dramatize (gagging). As for Matt, he most definitely is not someone I would ever call a "friend" in any sense of the word. To in any way demean a person because they have made a life choice to quit drinking shows how immature he is and I agree with you, I would never put my name on anything he is doing. If he truly wanted to be involved with charity, why wasn't he doing this charity before the show started? I saw the same red flags that you did and agree 100%. Courtney and Matt remind me of those kids in school that were so popular but now that they are grown up, they are still trying to be the homecoming king and queen. Pampered, self indulgent, never truly had a life experience but wanting everyone to think they are intelligent. Matt and Mark, the comparison at the dinner is a perfect example. The wanna be cool guy who has done nothing trying to brag, while the mature MAN handled the childish behavior like an adult. You have had many life experiences and this shows as it does for Tara and Glenn. I admire your convictions and that you held your temper with Courtney as long as you did, I would have stood up, told her when she is ready to actually carry on an adult conversation I would converse with her and went to the other room. Well, to be honest, I would never have a conversation with her, ignorance is one of my pet peeves.

Drew the way you acted tonight proved that you are an unfavorable character! When you have to resort to name calling it proves that you are insecure. You really need to examine yourself and stop being so angry at the world!
