Here is everything you need to know about episode five of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. This episode of VH1’s Celeb Rehab with Dr. Drew was crazy with the addition of new cast member Kari Ann Peniche who was originally booted from Dr. Drew’s Sex Rehab. I like the idea of adding new cast members to the show as it goes along it creates more drama. Follow the underlined sections for the different stars that were creating the most drama this week. If you need to catch up I have reviews for the first three episodes here and a recap of episode 4 here. You can watch this episode for free from VH1 here.
The show is comprised of a cast of medical professionals working to treat celebrity addicts at Pasadena Recovery Center. The addicts live here for a month and share rooms together. When they arrive they go through a medical checkup from Dr. Drew and then have their bags searched for drugs. They go through group therapy together on a daily basis and if needed Dr. Drew also follows up with one on one therapy. They can have visitors once a week unless they mess up. This is completely voluntary unless court ordered.
Heidi Fleiss Realizes She’s A Crazy Bird Lady
In group Heidi is asked if she thought she’s be here when she was younger to which she replied after a quick thought, “Did I think I’d be living with birds? No not in a million years, but that’s where I am and I love my birds.” Just the tone in her voice let on that she knew how crazy it is to be a crazy bird lady, but now she totally owns up to it. Heidi is sober.
Tom Sizemore Rope-a-Dope
Dr. Drew is worried about Tom Sizemore’s girlfriend Monroe being an obstacle in his treatment. Last time she snuck drugs onto the facility so this time when she visits they want to search her. The facility takes her bags, but the search stops when she refuses to give a Urine Analysis (UA). She looks cracked out on something. They take the bags intended for Tom Sizemore and start searching them. Inside is a pill caddy by days full of Oxycotin, other pain killers, etc. Also the facility knew something had to be up because she was trying to deliver the stuff at midnight! I mean no one needs luggage that bad.
Tom also tells the group that he is currently homeless, but Heidi Fleiss looks like she’s about to start calling bullshit on him.
Kari Ann Peniche is a Bitch
She’s a King baby if she can’t order everyone around and have her way then she’s a baby and wines and cries until she gets her way. She was throwing a fit because she didn’t want to go to group, “I’ll go another day, just not today.” That’s just like a little kid when its bath time. Then the facility got her the wrong pack of cigarettes, not even the wrong kind, right kind with the wrong box. She wanted a hard pack not a soft pack. She starts insulting everyone at the facility calling them stupid losers and bitching until finally someone produced a hard pack for her. During this they again cut to Dennis Rodman, as the voice of reason, and he’s mortified. He gives her the look we’re all giving her at home.It kind of felt staged though like they had the correct cigarettes so why didn’t they just give them to her in the first place?
Field Trip – Mother’s Against Drunk Driving Funeral Meeting
Every episode the addicts are taken from the rehab facility and engaged in some random activity. This week they took them to a MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) meeting where a woman talked about how she killed someone while intoxicated. The group was somber and really wished they were back to breaking stuff in the junk yard.
The Cast Is Sick
Dr. Drew brought everyone together for group to cover how everyone is feeling. If they share this with the others it will create empathy between them. This will help in the rehabilitation process. Some people are much more sick than others and different types of sick.
The group gets a visit from recovered addict Brigitte Nielsen. She lights up when she sees Dennis Rodman in rehab and says, “Dennis! Thank god you’re here!” More Kari Ann Peniche hijinks as she starts attacking the other cast members.
