Report: VH1 planning 'Celebrity Rehab'-like sex addiction reality show
By Christopher Rocchio, 02/16/2009
Celebrity sex addicts could reportedly be receiving some professional help via a new reality series.
VH1 is developing a Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew-like spinoff that would feature stars addicted to sex instead of drugs and alcohol, the New York Daily Newsreported Sunday.
However despite VH1's plans, the Daily News reported it remains to be seen whether VH1 will be able to find sex-addicted celebrities that are willing to participate.
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which follows celebrities as they undergo detoxification and treatment with the help of David Drew "Dr. Drew" Pinsky and his staff, has aired two seasons on VH1.
Some of the celebrities who have appeared on the series have included former American Idol fourth-season finalist Jessica Sierra; former Sons of Hollywood star Sean Stewart; former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler; actress and The Surreal Life sixth-season houseguest Tawny Kitaen; former police brutality victim Rodney King; and actor Gary Busey.
Last month VH1 premiered Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House, which follows former Celebrity Rehab participants as they attempt to maintain sobriety after undergoing detoxification and treatment.
The series currently airs in the Thursdays at 10PM ET/PT timeslot on VH1.
