'Pretty Wild' Star -- I'm Addicted to Opiates

1/18/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Pretty Wild" star Tess Taylor has checked in to a rehabilitation center in Malibu to kick an addiction to opiates ... TMZ has learned.


Taylor's mother, Andrea Arlington, tells us, "Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis Neiers and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess Taylor contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help."

Arlington tells us Tess weighed only 93 pounds at the time she decided to seek help ... noting that Taylor was "extremely weak and exhausted from trying to detox and recover from Opiate addiction."

Taylor plans to stay at the center for the entire 12-month program.

It is good news about Tess entering rehab, if it is really true. Everyone deserves a chance to get better. Who really needs help is YOU. This is not a smear campaign, Andrea, YOU are the one who should be ashamed. I find it very contradictory that you say that you want to be authentic and honest. First, you pimp out your own girls and your former best friend’s daughter to make the ridiculous show. Alexis and Tess both had drug problems prior to, during and now, of course , after. You would have to live in a cave to not know this. You lie to Tess about her mother and did your best to further ruin their already strained relationship. You betrayed your “best friend” and pretended that you were there to SAVE the day all the while throwing Tracie under the bus. Tess & your daughter were spending every bit of money they made or stole and selling themselves to get high on heroin, while you were collecting your check. NOW, you are SHAKING DOWN Tracie and her fiancé for the costs of Tess’s 12 month Malibu Rehab. Does it matter to you that Tracie has yet to have a meaningful conversation with her own daughter? You have filled Tess with your lies, and made her question her own mother’s motives and love. You cashed your checks from exploiting this girl without her mother’s permission or blessing. NOW, you want them to pay the bill? Andrea, will you ever stop your grifting? You can’t mess with people’s lives and then expect them to pay the bill for your discretions. KARMA baby.

Dear dear me... it is very sad. I can agree with the pathetic parenting of their mother. It's a joke. I'm sure she is an addict as well. Stage mum her couldn't get her career off so she lives it through her girls. Tess is sure to cut all ties with her family if she was to make it on her own without the strings attached to the rest of the mess. Tess WAS NOT involved with the bling ring. She is definitely on the road of recovery. It's going to be hard work, but I believe she can do it with the support I'm sure she has from close sources that are taking the stand to help her recovery.
