VH1 Star Checks into Non-Celebrity Rehab

9/10/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kari Ann Peniche -- the Playboy model from VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" -- just checked into another rehab center to be treated for an addiction to methamphetamines ... only this time, her progress won't be aired on television.

Sources close to Peniche -- who you may also remember from the Eric Dane/Rebecca Gayheart "naked tape" -- tell us she checked into an expensive, high-end rehab clinic late last night .. and plans to stay for 30 days.

We're told Peniche is prepared to foot the massive bill for the high-class rehab joint ... which we're told will easily exceed $30,000.

I'll admit to being a Loveline fan, but I think Celebrity Rehab is ridiculous. Maybe now she'll get some help that will actually do her some good.

I actually don't even know who she is, but can't blame her for the sex tape thing. Eric Dane? Yes, please.

Kari Ann is truly the most despicable individual ever to be on a television show. Douche bag is generally a phrase used to refer to guys (though I'm not sure why), but if there is a queen douche bag it is definitely Kari Ann.

This girl will never be sober. If you watched, it's not just her addiction, it's the way she is as a human. That can't be changed. She is a hateful entitled beyotch. Do they have rehab for that?

I'm not a fan of Kari Ann but another 30 day rehab stint is not going to help this girl. She needs a long term program - 6 months to a year. She's had a lifetime of drug abuse and bad behavior. That's not going to get fixed in 30 days.

Okay, what I was gonna say is doesn't rehab cost abt $20 -30K anyway?!
Not that I personally know!! Seems like I heard something like that before. I remember wondering how an addict could afford it?! Dunno....

This chick to say the very least is a handful. She is the biggest ragging bitch out there. She needs a whole lot more then 30 days that is for sure. She needs a few years. Disaster is what she is. Hope this facility can handle her cuz no one else wants to.

Barely famous and was obnoxious on CR.

Doesn't really want help.
Doesn't matter, as no one cares about her.

Good for her. I hate her and she's a spoiled brat but she knows that she need help and is willing to foot the bill for it. Problem is, will she think she gets better treatment and will she think it's okay to treat everyone badly because she's "paying them"?xxx

She is a spoiled rotten brat who refuses to accept responsibility for any of her actions. I cannot wait until meth takes her looks away and she starts picking at the scabs on her meth face.. then she'll start hooking to get more meth and just be a complete has been.. wait. she already is a complete has been, or a never was... she could disappear tomorrow and no one would really care.
