The site says a friend found him Friday morning with blood coming from his ears and nose and called 911. Paramedics arrived and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, TMZ says.

Joey entered rehab halfway through his season on Real World, drawing pretty good ratings with his admission that he'd been battling alcohol and drugs. His appearance on Celebrity Rehab was for cocaine and ecstasy addiction. No cause of death was confirmed.
