Another day, another Pretty Wild star checking into rehab.
The latest is 20-year-old Tess Taylor, who TMZ is reporting has checked into rehab just a month after her younger sister Alexis Neiers was sentenced to spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program for heroin possession.
Tess’s enabler mother, Andrea Arlington, tells TMZ, “Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis Neiers and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess Taylor contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help.”
Andrea adds that Tess weighed a mere 93 pounds at the time she decided to seek help for her Opiate addiction. Opiates include Oxycodone, Methadone and Heroin.
Tess is reportedly planing to stay at the rehab center for 12 months. Safe to say we will not be getting a second season of Pretty Wild anytime soon on the E! network.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TESS GOING TO REHAB?
UPDATE - Tess’s mom Andrea released the statement below and has also responded to some questions in the comments section -
“It was decided by our family that we should be willing to be examples and not hide our imperfections, but to fully be real and tell the truth. We want others dealing with this addiction to feel courageous enough to talk about it with their families and get help before it is too late. Making all these judgmental comments are hurtful toward this goal. To stand up as individuals and as a family, who are blessed to have an opportunity to shed light on this epidemic and educate others, instead of hiding behind closed doors and pretending we are perfect is a gift to our society in the long run and that is why we collectively decided to be real. If you feel otherwise, please educate yourself about the most important issue here and that is helping others. We are in a position to make it right and good for people to get help instead of hiding in shame. I am grateful to be on the slaughtering block, if by being willing to be vulnerable, I can save even one life.”
