Fallen country music star Mindy McCready is among the celebrities cast in VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Read more about the story plus see photos and video of Mindy here.
Mindy McCready, who last year confirmed she had had an ongoing affair with Roger Clemens, is set to appear on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” early next year.
The country music star will appear in eight episodes of the show, which is hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, where she will undergo treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center. Other cast members include: actress MacKenzie Phillips of One Day at a Time fame, Heidi Fleiss, NBA star Dennis Rodman, Lisa D’Amato of America’s Next Top Model, Mike Starr of Alice in Chains, Kari Ann Peniche, a former Miss U.S. Teen beauty queen and Joey Kovar, who appeared in Real World Hollywood.
McCready’s downward spiral began in 2004, when she was arrested for using a fake prescription to buy OxyContin. She was found guilty and fined $4,000. She was put on three years probation and had to serve 200 hours of community service. She was arrested for DUI in May 2005 while in Nashville, and in July of that same year she was charged with unlawful use of transportation, identify theft, unlawful imprisonment and hindering prosecution while in Arizona. She was arrested yet again in July 2007 in Ft. Myers, Florida after having assaulted her mother. She ended up having to serve a year in jail for violating probation. She was released early in December 2007. McCready was sentenced to jail again in June 2008, after violating her probation, and started serving her 60 days sentence on September 30th, 2008, but was released for good behavior on October 31, 2008.
