Celebrity Rehab Returns To VH1 In October
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is retuning to VH1 with a second set of patients. And this group may be wilder than the first. VH1 has released this statement about the upcoming cast:
“Similar to the first cycle, the second season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew will follow the real-life experiences of celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment at a center in the Los Angeles area. The show will follow Jeff Conaway as he checks back into rehab after a series of back surgeries, setbacks and subsequent reliance on pain medications. Joining him in rehab are Sean Stewart (Sons of Hollywood), Amber Smith (model/actress), Rodney King, Nikki McKibbon (American Idol), Steven Adler (Guns n Roses) and Tawny Kitaen (Actress). Gary Busey, who is 13 years sober, will also be joining the cast to share his experiences and thoughts on the recovery process.”
Jeff Conaway is the only cast member from the season to return. (Note: Jessica Sierra from the first season is at the facility under going more treatment, but is not going to be part of the show.) The series is set to premiere in October.
