  • Rachel Uchitel, Jeremy London sign on for 'Celebrity Rehab's' most notorious season yet

    “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” is shaping to have an interesting cast of notorious party girls, former teen heartthrobs and reality stars.

    The lineup includes former “Party of Five” star Jeremy London, alleged Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel, former “Hills” star Jason Wahler, 70’s heartthrob Leif Garrett, former supermodel Janice Dickinson, socialite Jason Davis and Frankie Lons, mother of R&B singer Keyshia Cole.

    The VH1 reality show, which has become something of a go-to program for stars looking to salvage destroyed reputations, follows the “celebrities” as they go through the 21-day detox program at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

    Filming for “Celebrity Rehab” was temporarily put on hold earlier this year after producers failed to find a sufficient cast.

    Hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, the show will feature 8 hour-long episodes. While no date has been set for the premiere, it is expected to air some time this year.

    Nearly all of the stars have battled public struggles with addiction. Garrett and Wahler have both been busted for DUIs, while London recently made headlines for claiming he was kidnapped by two men and forced to do drugs. Dickinson and Lons have publicly discussed battles with addiction.

    One celeb who has kept quiet on any addiction is Rachel Uchitel, aside from alleged tales of drug-fueled sex with married golfer Tiger Woods.

    Last week, news broke that Uchitel would appear on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” But it seems her decision to appear on “Celebrity Rehab” has cost her that opportunity as Trump told TMZ he has “zero interest in her now.”

    “Celebrity Apprentice is a huge show and ‘Celebrity Rehab’ is not,” he told TMZ.  “I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available.  I’m moving on.”
