Tess Taylor

Enters Rehab for Heroin

2/15/2012 1:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tess Taylor has entered rehab for a heroin addiction.
Tess Taylor
-- model, former reality star, and sister to Burglar Buncher Alexis Neiers -- has entered rehab for a heroin addiction ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Tess tell us, she entered the Pasadena Recovery Center last Sunday -- after her felony drug possession arrest last month. We're told the arrest was the primary catalyst behind her seeking treatment again.

Tess entered rehab for an opiate addiction one year ago -- but quit after 30 days.

Sources tell us, her family had nearly given up on Tess after she pulled out of rehab last year -- but when the reality star hit rock bottom after her most recent arrest ... they helped usher her back into treatment.

As for how Tess plans to pay the massive medical bills -- we're told several family friends are pitching in ... and she's expecting a $20,000 check from Sofia Coppola within the month, which should alleviate some financial pressure.

The check is for Tess' role as a consultant on the Burglar Bunch film Sofia is currently developing.

Andrea Neiers tells TMZ, "I hope Tess takes this opportunity to work on herself and become someone she will be proud of, and who can help other young people avoid making the same choices."

Hope this time it sticks for her. Pretty girl, life is too short to throw it away all for a really evil drug.

She could have so much more for her life if she worked hard at rehab and turned it around. Something's missing, hope she finds it so she does not cope with drugs anymore.

Rehab is for quitters and folks looking for better contacts.

She is going to rehab because the heroin is better inside. She'll be flooded with other drugs too.

Betcha she finds Jesus in rehab, he hangs out there and in prison - ask anyone.

...just another looooser!!!

So she's only going to rehab so she can try & cop a plea to get little to no jail time. She's only going to rehab to shut everyone up. Heroin? It's sheet or get off the pot. Poor girl if she doesn't clean up her act she'll be dead really soon.

I wish her well. And when she gets out, I hope she has loving family and friends who are supportive, and not the kind that help the addiction go on.

Sofia Coppola???? that has got to be a joke. Why would she waste her time and talent with a story about these classless fools? I am shocked, she should be embarrassed.

It will not work because shes only going hoping to avoid jail - not because she wants to get clean. She'll be gone within a year.

Why cares about this no-talent skank?

Let's hope she books into Room 434 and takes a nice warm bath with a olive oil gravy bowl and a turkey sandwich.
