'Celeb Rehab' Star Bails on Real Rehab After 3 Days

9/19/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Another major setback for former "Celebrity Rehab" star Kari Ann Peniche -- TMZ has learned the ex-Playboy model has thrown in the rehab towel again -- this time after only three days.

A rep for Peniche tells us the former model decided to bail on a high-end rehab clinic -- where she was being treated for an addiction to meth.

We're told Kari Ann claims when she checked in -- her boyfriend promised to follow suit soon thereafter. But after day three -- the BF was a no-show ... so Kari Ann left the clinic in search of her guy.

We're told the couple is now working on their relationship -- and Kari Ann does plan to seek further treatment for her meth problem.

Calling Dr. Phil ... or Drew ... or Laura -- (she's not that desperate).

This is girl needs serious help, she has deep rooted issues that date back to her childhood and molestation. I hope she gets the help she needs.

And those of you who are commenting that she's ugly! I would not want to see what you consider beautiful!

Kari Ann Peniche is gorgeous!

From what I saw on TV this chick is a bitch, however, there was something very sad, disturbing and damaged about her. She needs help. I hope she gets it. Kari, no dude will take care of you honey, stand up and be strong on your own, you have a lot going for you.

Shes the person that Lindsay is now learning about since shes going to AA meetings----there is a part in AA that speaks of some folks just never get it and never will---they call them "there are such unfortunates"---that no manner or number of meetings, help, listening, will ever work and basically they are doomed because they simply dont want what being straight has to offer. I believe she may be one of the "such unfortuantes".

She clearly doesnt want sobriety or to be clean. It still and always will be all about her, and her high, and her own orgasm. I doubt she has felt a real feeling for another human being since she was a very young child.

God help her and anyone who comes into her life. She's dangerous now. Dangerous to be with, and Dangerous to be exchanging any kind of bodily fluids with as well.

Please keep her away from us.

I don't know who she is. That looks like a rare white pug she has with her. Adorable!

I've watched her before on Dr. Drew. She wants the help but on her terms. I know I shouldn't feel sorry for her but she has people who love her (brothers) and just want their sister back. It is sad but you can't help someone who won't commit and help herself.

i watched the 2 seasons of rehab she was on and its pretty clear to me that she doesn't wanna get clean , cause if she did she'd leave the relationship on the back burner , go into rehab , and do whatever needs to be done to get clean and sober , all shes looking for is media coverage to keep her relevant whether its by t.v. , tmz , etc. , shes gonna end up dead from an overdose at some point and as for her personality well shes just a cold hearted bitch who likes drama , so i don't feel pity on her in the least bit
