'Golden Voice' Ted Williams -- Headed Back to Rehab

5/5/2011 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ted Williams -- the homeless man with the "Golden Voice" -- is heading back to rehab today ... Ted's manager tells TMZ.

Ted Williams Rehab
We're told ... later today, Ted will return to the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas -- the same place he bailed on back in January.

Ted's manager says Mr. Golden Voice plans on attending a 90-day program to "get his strength back" and to get a "solid foundation in a 12-step program."

We're told Ted's book deal and reality show have been put on hold until he completes the program.

Rumor in Columbus is that his "manager" is and has always been a real "user" who always tries to get rich quick. I hope Ted can make a true recovery and find good people to surround himself with.

Wishing for the best for Ted and his girlfriend, but this chance is the last one. No more sympathy if he blows this.

Who cares, and why are you reporting about this loser? News must be very, very slow.

Some say he's screwing up his 15 minutes of fame, but he's actually adding a little time to the clock. Look at Lindsay Lohan. She hasn't made a good movie, or made anything at all since 2004. She's made her fame on being a drunk and drugged out thief who for some reason or another people root for every time she goes to rehab or jail.

And you idiots who can't remember the "Golden Voice" story from just a few months ago, please get your head checked.

Why do we have to put up with some idiots idea of giving an alcoholic bum a reality show. I would rather watch "trading Places" with Eddie Murphy over and over again.

This guys voice is not what they say it is. I have heard sound bites and his voice really "BITES". He has a lisp and sounds like he has smoked too much and drank too much. He will never sound good.

15 MINUTES OF FAME.........OVER!

The only really big difference between this guy and 3/4 of the cokeheads,drunks and sex addicts in Hollywood is that they have a home, nearing foreclosure, of course.
I would be willing to bet he's overall a nicer guy, though.
Equality. He should have as much a chance at rehab as the next guy who checks in every 6 months.

You can't fix a lifetime of addiction with a quick stint in rehab. I wish him well but like most people commenting, I don't think there will be a happy ending. He is not surrounded by family and friends who will be there for him. His minders are media people who are looking to make a quick buck off his future reality show.
