Two cast members skipped Celebrity Rehab reunion

VH1’s Celebrity Rehab concludes tomorrow night, and next Thursday, the celebrities will reunite with Dr. Drew to report on their progress. But two of the contestants didn’t show up.

The reunion taped last Monday, Feb. 25, and both Daniel Baldwin and Jessica Sierra did not attend, The New York Post reports. Dr. Drew told the paper that those who showed up “are doing well.” Both Baldwin and Jeff Conaway quit the show, but Conway returned for the reunion.

Jessica is actually back at the Pasadena Recovery Center. At a hearing about transferring her probation to California, her lawyer recently “told [a] judge that every progress report and all indications show Sierra is doing well in treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center,” acording to The Tampa Tribune. Earlier, “Florida officials allowed Sierra to go to California for a yearlong stint at an in-house drug treatment facility.”
