I know you guys have barely been able to sleep since we told you in early June that “Celebrity Rehab 4” was on indefinite hold because the producers were having a tough time finding big name addicts willing to have their withdrawal symptoms and teary group-therapy sessions aired on primetime TV. But—never fear!—the situation has been resolved. The show has two new participants. One of them is a big duh—Jeremy London, who basically wrote “Hey Dr. Drew, cast me!” across his forehead in permanent marker with the whole I-was-kidnapped-and-forced-to-smoke-dope story.
The second new person on the show is a little bit of a surprise—Rachel Uchitel, i.e. first woman to be accused of boning Tiger Woods. Apparently, she’s seeking treatment for a prescription pill addiction. What kind, Rachel, what kind?!?! [PopEater]Others who will be on the season—Janice Dickinson, Jason Wahler (aka, Lauren Conrad‘s ex), and Leif Garrett, who was kind of like the Justin Beiber of the ’70s. But the first person to sign on, Tila Tequila, has backed out. She was heading on the show to treat her Ambien addiction—as a friend said, “She would base her entire day around it. She would wake up, snort Ambien, Google herself, do more, Twitter all day and then sleep.” But her reps have since nixed the idea.
DMX had also wanted to be part of the show, but wasn’t able to get a leave from jail to do so. And while the show pursued peeps like Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Capriati, Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller, Heather Locklear, and Jenna Jameson—none of them were having it. [NY Daily News]
With these new additions, looks like the show may finally back on the road. Phew?
