'Celebrity Rehab' Targets Another Star

5/27/2010 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the people behind "Celebrity Rehab" are closing in on another cast member for the show -- former "Laguna Beach" star Jason Wahler.

Wahler certainly has the prerequisites for the show -- he's been arrested several times in alcohol-related incidents .. like this, this, this, this, and this.

We're told no deal has been signed yet -- but the two sides are getting very close to an agreement.

As TMZ first reported, the VH1 show starring Dr. Drew Pinsky has already locked up Tila Tequila -- but they're still scrambling to fill the rest of the cast.

Hey, Drew... why not just use cardboard cutouts of real celebrity addicts? You can carry them around and talk to them and put them in bed... you can even mail them if you want... or...you could just go away you desperate attention vampire... get help...is there a TV Doctor rehab show anywhere?

Dr. Drew - forget-a-bout-it! The Celebs have too much money to show the world they're compulsive, spoiled, drug-addicted douche-baigs!



Make this show PORNSTAR REHAB and you will never need to scramble for clients again. They are equally as addicted - but much more in need of the 20-100 grand you pay these clowns to do 30 days on your show.

It makes me sick that Dr. Drew cares nothing about helping these people. It's all about the "success of the show", and who is most interesting to exploit! I would never watch this. Tila T is doing it for the money, and she deserves to be exploited. She does it to herself, and it's embarassing. Let people volunteer to invite people into their private hell. Honestly. I never heard of such bad taste for an idea for a tv show. Go back to loveline, Dr. Drew. You're a hack and butt into people's business whom you don't even know. Hook up with Dr. Phil! I'll bet between you two, you've got plenty of your own skeletons in the closet.

If he's on the show, shouldn't they be required to change the name to "not really celebrity rehab"
