Former 'Celebrity Rehab' star Jeff Conaway home after breaking hip
UPI News Service, 04/02/2010
Jeff Conaway's manager says the U.S. actor and television personality is back home after a stay in a nursing facility to treat a broken hip.
The "Grease" and "Taxi" star has battled an addiction to drugs for many years and recently appeared on the TV reality series "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
The 59-year-old actor broke his hip during a fall at his house in January, his girlfriend, Vikki Lizzi, said. Lizzi said after the mishap that Conaway wasn't recovering from his injury and addiction, and claimed "he wants to die at home."
However, manager Kathy Boole told E! News Friday the actor is doing better.
"Jeff is at home with Vikki, continuing to work on getting stronger and weaning himself off the pain medicine," Boole said.
