I am shocked to see Scott Stapp‘s name on the list so soon after his psychotic break and subsequent diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I wish nothing but the best for Scott and Jaclyn but I personally don’t think a reality show (at least not this show with this doctor) is a healthy environment for him right now.
Following five years of Celebrity Rehab the show is returning with a twist! This time, in an all new premise, the legendary Dr. Drew will check in with past patients in Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited.
Dr. Drew will also address life in the months and years following addiction recovery and discussing the struggles of sobriety, and in some cases the updates won’t feature happy endings. “While many patients on the series have been successful with recovery, viewers will see that in some instances, not even Dr Drew’s patients are immune to the perils of relapse.” No word on who is doing well and who unfortunately may have re-succumbed to addiction.
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited premieres Wednesday, November 20th (8/9c) on Vh1.

THOUGHTS ON DR. DREW’S NEW SERIES? ARE YOU INTERESTED IN CATCHING UP WITH PAST CELEBRITY REHABBERS?
In a new interview with E! Amber, 21, reveals she, like many others, was not surprised the marriage between Kim, 31, and Kris Humphriesled to divorce. “I don’t think anyone was surprised,” said Amber.
Amber then goes on to make it clear she can relate to Kimmie because they are so totally a lot alike! “I mean it is heartbreaking, but Kim and Kris are like Gary [Shirley] and me. Total opposites,” noted Amber. “One is a diva and the other is a down-home guy.”
Kim Kardashian Jr. also explained why she calls herself a diva! “Well, Janice Dickinson told me I’m a diva, so I guess I’d have to say I’m the diva,” laughed Amber. Okaaay.
As for the current state of her relationship with baby daddy Gary Shirley, Amber reveals the two are working on finally becoming adults becoming better co-parents to their daughter, Leah. If you recall, they are currently broken up for the week time being. In fact, the two are working together to plan a birthday bash for little Leah who turns 3 next week! (She’s already 3?)
“We’re having a giant bash for her,” said Kimmie Jr. “It’s going to be all princess-themed. She’s going to be Cinderella. Gary and I realized that it’s all about Leah. It’s not about what he wants or what I want. It’s her day.”
In Amber’s defense, Kim and her do have a lot in common as they are both famous for being famous and lacking any known talent!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S COMMENTS? IS SHE A LOT LIKE KIMMIE?
After months of speculation and casting rumors, VH1 has officially announced the cast of Celebrity Rehab season four today.
Most shocking is the addition of professional mistress Rachel Uchitel, who is infamous for her affairs with Tiger Woods and actor David Boreanaz. TMZ is reporting that Rachel, who was the first mistress named in the Tiger Wood affairs thus receiving $10 million from the sports star to keep silent on their relationship, will bag a cool $500,000 for her appearance on Celebrity Rehab.
Rachel’s addition to the show is even more surprising because TMZ reported this weekend that she was in talks to appear on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice. According to the report, Donald Trump asked her to be on the show and she answered yes. NBC will however have the final say on whether or not she will appear on the show. Guess it does pays to be a ho-bagwhore mistress.
As for Rachel’s addiction, a VH1 rep tells TMZ it is an addiction to pills, while UsWeekly is reporting she has no drug or alcohol addictions, adding that the show will focus on her addiction to love and her bad choices when it comes to relationships.
Also joining Rachel for the fourth season is professional hotmess/former supermodel Janice Dickinson, and former star of The Hills & Laguna Beach, Jason Wahler, who has been arrested multiple times in recent years for alcohol related incidents. No word yet on what Janice’s addiction is.
The remaining cast members this season include former teen heartthrob Leif Garrett, troubled actor Jeremy London, socialite Jason Davis, and R&B singer Keyshia Cole’s mother Frankie Lons.
No longer appearing on CR this season is Tila Tequila, who signed on to appear on the show back in June. No word on why Tila was dropped from the show.

Just when you thought they were gone for good, Heidi and Spencer Pratt have decided one more time that they need more attention.
The two Hills stars will be returning toI’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! again, Usmagazine confirms, despite several attempts to quit before officially leaving the show on June 8.
They will both be joining the entire cast of the NBC reality series on the June 25 finale. They will also be joined by Heidi’s sister, Holly Montag, who made her debut on the I’m a Celebrity last week.
Holly and JaniceDickinson were both eliminated from last night’s episode.
First, Heidi Pratt was rushed to the hospital from the show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, it now seems to be Janice Dickinson’s turn. The former model and oldest contestant on the show was rushed to a hospital with a medical emergency. She was transferred by an ambulance this weekend to a medical clinic for treatment.
Not only had Janice complained of hunger, but she also complained of bronchitis during the show. During yesterday’s episode on NBC, Dickinson returned back to the set feeling and looking much better.
In what looks to be nothing short of a freak show, The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag met up with ousted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich this week in LA to take promo pictures for NBC’s new reality show – I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
The attention whoring reality show couple have signed up to appear on the new reality show scheduled to air this summer. Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich was also signed on for the show, but dropped out when a judge ruled earlier this week that he is not allowed to leave the country while still under investigation. He however for some reason still decided to fly out to LA to take promo pictures.
The show is set to premiere on NBC on June 1. It will involve dropping 10 celebrities into a Costa Rican jungle to face challenges and elimination.
The other “celebrities” signed on for the show include -
