LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel, former supermodel Janice Dickinson and reality star Jason Wahler of “The Hills” have all signed on for TV show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew”, U.S. channel VHI said on Monday.
Uchitel, a nightclub manager who helped break the Tiger Woods sex scandal story last November, will be also be joined by 1970s teen idol and singer Leif Garrett, and “Party of Five” TV actor Jeremy London.
Woods has admitted cheating on his wife but has never confirmed or denied specific claims made by more than 12 women.
The fourth series of “Celebrity Rehab”, to be aired in late 2010, will follow the real-life experiences of the celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment for drugs, drink and other destructive addictions.
Past patients on the show have included actor Gary Busey, Guns N’Roses drummer Steven Adler, former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and country music singer Mindy McCready.
Celebrity news websites reported earlier this year that producers had offered actress Lindsay Lohan $1 million to take part in the upcoming season. But Lohan, 24, reportedly turned down the offer and is due to start a 90-day jail term on Tuesday followed by a court-ordered 90 day rehab program.
