steve-o sideshow

Is it possible there's a side (or part) of Steve-O we haven't seen? MTV just announced a new one-time special about the infamous Jackass personality. Personally, I have always had a bit of love for Steve-O, especially on the genius that was Wildboyz with Chris Pontius. But it's no secret that he's been dealing with a severe drug addiction for years. He's been pretty vocal about his recent treatment and stint in a mental health facility.

Most recently, Steve-O appeared on Dancing With the Stars. Although I didn't see too many episodes, I know he made it much farther than expected becoming a bit of a fan favorite.

Steve-O: Demise and Rise (airing May 3) will chronicle his struggle with drugs and alcohol, including his days working as a clown, up to his decision to get clean and his treatment leading up to DWTS.

Don't know about you, but I'm rooting or Steve-O.
