The second season of Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab has begun filming in Pasadena, CA.
The new “cast” includes: Rodney King, Nikki McKibbin, Tawny Kitaen, Steven Adler and Sean Stewart.
Plus: Jeff Conaway is back for yet another round of rehabbin’ and Gary Busey will sign on in the Daniel Baldwin role, since Gary claims 13 years of sobriety.
By the way, yes, you read that right. Somehow or other, Rodney “Can We All Get Along?” King became a member of the Celebrity Rehab cast. Genius, genius, genius.
I continue to be disgusted by the fact that these people are willing to go through rehab for a national audience just for another shot at the spotlight. If there’s anything more potent to an addict than alcohol and drugs, it’s clearly fame. You cannot effectively treat the alcohol and drug problem while encouraging the most destructive symptoms of the fame addiction. The whole thing just appalls me.

Jason Biggs and his new wife Jenny Mollen hit up the opening of sushi joint SugarFish in Marina del Rey on Monday night.
I showed up at a friend’s house the other night, and he had the original American Pie on TV. It was the scene where Jason’s character prematurely ejaculates — twice – with Shannon Elizabeth, while the whole school is watching via webcam. I was glued to the screen. I’d forgotten how funny that shit was. But I have to admit, as I get older — and, consequently, the men I date get older — I have to admit that I’m a little impressed that he was at least able to prematurely ejaculate twice. Oh, to have sex with high-school boys again …
I’m kidding. Ew. But it’s totally true that youth is wasted on the young.

My fabulous readers know how I feel about Tyson Beckford. I feel that he’s hot. Really, really hot. Not quite Greg Plitt hot, but HOT nonetheless.
So when EB readers Tiffany and Hailey met Tyson at a party in the Hamptons this weekend and got photos with him and sent them to me, I just HAD to run them. He looks amazing here. EDIBLE.
The party was a People magazine event at Surf Lodge, which is … wait for it … Top Chef also-ran Sam Talbot’s new restaurant in Montauk.
Sam is ANOTHER huge celeb crush of mine, but Tiffany says she couldn’t get a picture with him — he was too busy in the kitchen. She did, however, confirm that he is “really tall and really sexy.” Ohhhhhhh, Sam. I love you.
And Tiffany scored Tyson’s number and he texted her later that night to chat her up and ask her and her girlfriends to come to his hotel. She declined, because she has a boyfriend. I WOULD NOT HAVE DECLINED. I SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. WHY OH WHY DID I EVER LEAVE NEW YORK CITY???

Check out the bling Brooklyn’s sporting. She’s just barely 21. And a hugely successful model. She’s definitely ready to settle down with one man for the rest of her life. This will go smoothly.
