Rachel Uchitel in 'Rehab' -- Look Ma, No Pills!

7/22/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Less than a week into rehab, Rachel Uchitel has kicked her addiction to prescription pills -- not because Dr. Drew is that good ... but because she never was addicted, according to sources.

Rachel started taping "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" this week, and sources close to the production say she never really had a pill popping problem -- instead, we're told, Rachel is getting "genuine treatment for emotional issues."

It's unclear what's at the root of those "issues," but it doesn't take a PhD to make a diagnosis.

One source adds Rachel isn't just collecting a paycheck -- "She's taking it seriously, and getting as much out of this as the cast members who are dealing with drugs or booze."

Good luck Dr. Drew.

It sounds like Drew just blew 500,000 bucks on a boring nobody.

Her emotional issues probably stem from the fact that her fiance was killed in the 9/11 attack. She was robbed, she's angry. Does not justify her behavior, but that's where the shrink should start.

Wow - I think we have hit another new low - she is "famous" for being a whore who knowing had sex with a married guy (aledigly)....classy. And now she is on TV for all the world (at leas the 100 or so who watch that show) to see. Classy, I tell ya, she is a real keeper.

Her fiance died on 9/11 in the World Trade Center. Look what has happened to her since he died. I think she's perfect for this show. She clearly has emotional issues that she needs to deal with. I think it will actually be interesting.

Did you ever notice she's always wearing sunglasses? I think her face is ugly. Her eyes are not pretty - she's much cuter with sunglasses on and she knows it - that's why she wears them all the time. She's the walking definition of butter face.

She's got moneyities. Cure: give he $500,000 and she'll pretend for the cameras that Dr Drew cured her for pills. Such a fake show. That guy Shifty keeps going on the show every time he runs out of drug money. The shows a joke.

When you are trying to get "genuine" help for "emotional issues" you use therapy, not a televised rehab show... That skank makes me ill... Anything to extend her 15 minutes... Classless piece of trash ! ! !

Her fiance died in 9/11? So-that is an excuse to ruin everyone elses marriage? Don't really think that is any kind of good excuse for her actions.

My dad died on 9/11 and I don't go around trying to steal other peoples fathers. Get over yourself Rachel.

Ever notice how many times people on the show say there going to quit? But they keep coming back because if they don't they lose out on a pay day. $500,000 to lay in bed for 2 weeks and pretend your addicted to pills? LOL!
