VH1 Announces The Cast Of “Celebrity Rehab” Season 5 – Levack Rant
I always felt Dr. Drew was in it for the fame but if people were getting help then it was ok. With "Taxi" and "Grease" star Jeff Conaway passing away I really question if "Celebrity Rehab" is good for anything. Now they've announced the cast for Season 5 and it's thick with Reality show retreads.
Micheal Lohan: is the farther of Lindsay Lohan and a world class screw up and a known addict so I bet he belongs in rehab but is he really a "celebrity"? What I'm hearing he will try to take the Gary Busey role of being there to help others.
Sean Young: Maybe most famous for her roles in "Bladerunner" and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective". However even with a very long list of movie credits she has been trying to get back into the spotlight by doing reality tv. She has recently made a fool of herself on "Gone Country" and "Skating With The Stars". I think she has a history of alcohol abuse.
Bai Ling: If you don't know who she is you're not alone. She is a very crazy model and has a short list of actual movie credits. She was in "The Crow" and also the reality show "But Can They Sing" on VH1. Spoiler alert...She couldn't. Not sure what she is on but I can see her needing help.
Amy Fisher: This one is famous for hooking up with Joey Buttafucco and shooting his wife in the head. Now she's a "celebrity"? I think not.
Jeremy Jackson: Best known as "Hobie" son of The Hoff on "Baywatch" and more recently on VH1's "Confessions of A Teen Idol". That was a show that tried to make stars out of creepy adults that were once famous. NONE OF THEM WERE EVER SEEN AGAIN. So Hobie here is a addict now trying to get back in the spotlight.
Jessica "Sugar" Kiper: She's a Survivor! She took third in "Survivor: Gabon" and was the first to get kicked off "Survivor: Heros Vs. Villians".
Steven Adler: Drummer of "Guns N' Roses" This is Steven's second trip to Dr. Drew's fame grab...I mean rehab. He also did the spin off on VH1 "Sober House". All of which seem to of really helped.
Dwight Gooden: A Icon of New York sports pitch at a HIGH level for both the Mets and the Yankees. (see what I did there?)
