Dr. Drew Pinsky is ready for a new set of famous addicts, as Frankie Lons, the mother of singer Keyshia Cole, will appear on season four of “Celebrity Rehab.” Lons joins a cast that includes Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel, Party of Five star Jeremy London, model/reality star Janice Dickinson, Jason Wahler from The Hills, musician Leif Garrett, and oil heir/socialite Jason Davis.
Frankie Lons has reality TV experience, as she starred in BET’s 2009 series “Frankie & Neffe.” A year earlier, Keyshia Cole starred in her own BET reality show “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is.”
As for Uchitel, her decision to sign onto “Celebrity Rehab” has cost her an opportunity on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”
“We no longer have interest in Rachel,” Trump’s camp said in a statement.
Last season of “Celebrity Rehab” featured former NBA star Dennis Rodman who, oddly enough, also appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2009.
