Remember Mindy McCready? All the media outlets are calling her a “troubled country singer”. At what point do you lose the title of “singer”? Like, is there a time frame, or is it one of those things where if you ever sang you get to be called a singer? Because, if that’s the case, I am a singer.
Anyway, she’s kinda, sorta involved in that whole mess with the Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart non-sex tape. Mindy is on the upcoming season of Celebrity Rehab along with the third participant in the video, Kari Ann Peniche. Peniche is accusing Mindy of stealing the video whilst they were roomies at rehab and leaking it onto the Internet — a theory which makes no sense considering those rehab people check everything including body cavities when you are admitted. You aren’t allowed to bring porn or computers and cell phone access is limited, so how did Peniche bring her boring porn to rehab?
McCready has fired back at the accusations through an Access Hollywood interview saying,”I did not want to be dragged into all this. I did not want to be a part of this. She is evil personified, she is evil in human form. She will hurt anyone she can to make money.”
Is there any chance that the producers at VH1 got a hold of this tape and leaked it? Because right now, this Battle of the Irrelevants is the only motivating force behind me watching this upcoming season of Celebrity Rehab.

Oh good. I was getting bored. So it’s nice to see that Defamer got their hands on this videotape of Noxema girl Rebecca Gayheart and husband
Dane Cook Eric Dane getting high and naked with disgraced beauty queen-turned-Hollywood-madam Kari Ann Peniche (you may also recognize the name because she was engaged to Aaron Carter for a few seconds).
The tape was collected as evidence in LAPD’s investigation of Peniche’s prostitution operation. (Although word on the street is that she’d been showing it around to friends before then anyway.)
It’s unclear exactly how old the tape is. But Gayheart comments at one point that she’s so high she has to lie down. I remember her getting sober after than incident in 2001 where she was so damn impatient in traffic that she killed a 9-year-old boy (and has done a fantastic job of keeping the press quiet about it since then). Guess it didn’t stick?
