Lauren Conrad’s ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler from The Hills will battle his alcohol addiction alongside a new season of other “famous” addicts on VH1′s Celebrity Rehab. Celebrity Rehab premieres this week on Monday, October 11.
The former reality TV star will meet with Dr. Drew after having been arrested for the sixth time in March. Why can’t he learn his lesson?
Jason is no stranger to booze, handcuffs, mugshots, and jail time. He has been arrested for alcohol-related offenses (like multiple DUI’s) and for physical assaults; he allegedly was arrested in Cabo San Lucas because of a bar fight and also was arrested in Hollywood for hitting a girl, charged with misdemeanor battery.
Jason told People in 2007, “I did try drugs, but it was never my thing. It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out. It’s like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde… I’m embarrassed as hell, but I really do not remember my arrests,” added Wahler, who did a stint with inpatient rehab in 2007. They’re blackouts. And that’s scary.”
Jason will be in good company at the Pasadena Recovery Center. Joining Jason on his quest to sobriety will include Lindsay Lohan – we wish! Joining Jason on his quest to sobriety will include, according to Entertainment Weekly, “Jeremy London (Party of Five, 7th Heaven), Rachel Uchitel (Infamous Party Planner), Janice Dickinson (The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), Leif Garrett (Musician), Frankie Lons (Keyshia Cole’s Mother), Jason Wahler (The Hills) and Jason Davis (Socialite).” As a sidenote, Rachel Uchitel may be better known as Tiger Woods’ homewrecking mistress, and Frankie Lons may be better known as “who!?”
Needless to say, this house of addicts sounds like an interesting bunch.
As Jason gears up to see his experience with rehab hit VH1, his ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad also prepares for another reality TV gig.
