Previously on Celebrity Rehab, eight drug addicted celebrities checked themselves into rehab under the care of Dr. Drew Pinsky and began their difficult battle for sobriety. Brigitte Nielsen, known for her marriage to actor Sylvester Stallone and her relationship with rapper Flavor Flav, former WWF star Joanie “Chyna Doll” Laurer, Jeff Conaway, who starred on Taxi and Babylon 5, Daniel Baldwin of Vegas Vampires, Seth “Shifty” Binzer of Willowbee, porn star Mary Carey, Family Matters’ Jaimee Foxworth and former American Idol contestant Jessica Sierra introduced their painful back-stories, while Dr. Drew started to analyze his patients’ struggles through a series of one-on-one meetings. But when Conaway lapsed into a seizure and ended up being rushed to the hospital, the rest of the group realized what rehabilitation is really about. While Conoway continued struggle with his withdrawal symptoms in the hospital, emotions flared for the others when it was revealed that Conoway brought drugs into the rehab.
The celebrities continue to undergo medical detox and suffer withdrawals in tonigt’s episode of Celebrity Rehab called “New Arrival.” Read on for a preview.
In the third episode of Celebrity Rehab, Conaway finally returns from the hospital. But while he continues to undergo medical detoxification, Dr. Drew lectures Jeff’s co-dependent girlfriend about how her own bad habits will kill Conaway.
A ninth patient joins the dysfunctional group and he comes in the form of Ricco Rodriguez, a former UFC fighter. Unfortunately, he doesn’t exactly hit it off with the women in the group and he gets an earful from Jessica Sierra during his first group meeting.
Later, Dr. Drew works with Mary Carey on how to leave behind her porn star lifestyle, but Daniel Baldwin tries to entice her back into her sex-charged ways when he lures her into a forbidden flirtation.
As the patients begin to emerge from severe withdrawals, they start to focus on their surroundings and begin to communicate with the staff.
Celebrity Rehab airs tonight at 10pm on VH1.
