On Friday's Tyra Banks Show, actor- comedian Andy Dick -- who currently stars on VH1's Sober House with Dr. Drew – talked candidly about his sexuality, alcoholism and other aspects of his troubled life.

According to Us Magazine, the 43-year old comedian revealed that he is "tri-sexual."

"I'll try anything," he told Banks on Friday. "I really have tried everything, except nothing with animals. There's only room for one animal - that would be me."

The actor said he is "not accepted" as bisexual in either the gay or straight community.

"I say, 'I'm bi, my love knows no gender,' and the straight community says, 'Oh right, that's just a cover-up - you're gay!'" And the gay community says, "Yeah right, that's just a cover-up - you're gay,' Dick told Tyra. "They both want to push me gay."

Dick, who has been charged a number of times with DUI and drug possession, told Tyra that he has to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet for a year but is optimistic that this most recent rehab visit--his 10th--will be his last. Dick said, "I know that I'm ready to turn a corner with my alcoholism because I'm willing to talk about it."

He also told Tyra that his time spent in rehab with Dr. Drew on 'Sober House,' was difficult because he was forbidden from having sex.

"He's got the animal caged. I'm under his care officially, and he's like, 'Look, folks ... he ain't gonna attack,' laughed Dick.

Dick previously starred on "The Ben Stiller Show," "NewsRadio" and "Less Than Perfect." He's also appeared in the films "Zoolander" and "Road Trip."
