She may be addicted to love, but Rachel Uchitel isn’t ready to conquer her attraction to drugs and attached men on basic cable.
The New York City nightclub hostess who never met a celeb with a wedding band that she didn’t want to bed bolted from Dr. Drew’s Pasadena Recovery Center over the weekend, less than two weeks after inking a deal to appear on the trouble-prone fourth season of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab.
According to network spies, the Hollywood mistress with romantic ties to actor David Boreanaz and shamed sportsman Tiger Woods is having trouble taking the steps to cleanse herself of a reported addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs.
“After a very intense day of filming, Rachel just couldn’t handle being at the Pasadena Recovery Center where Celebrity Rehab is filmed, and she decided to leave,” an insider told RadarOnline.com Wednesday.
Series producers tracked Rachel down at a Los Angeles hotel after her departure, but convincing the celeb-shagger to return to rehab proved no easy feat.
“Producers arrived at the hotel the following morning, and calm prevailed. Rachel simply needed some time away from the intense pressure and scrutiny that she is dealing with. She agreed to go back to Celebrity Rehab 4. Rachel has never had to face these issues before, and talking about it pushed her over the edge, and her instinct was to run. Producers made her realize that if she continues to run away from her issues, she will never be able to live a healthy life.”
