VH1′s sex addict rehab spin-off of Celebrity Rehab is now filming, and at least one reported cast member is no stranger to the series. Dr. Drew confirmed it’s in production on Twitter, writing, “I am working on an amazing new project that deals with sexual addictions. Very moving and very intense.”
Initial reports suggested the new show was a spin-off, and just a week ago, a casting notice was posted. But Dr. Drew also wrote that he’s “In Production for a new season, and will be a little too busy to twitter. But I will be back, and will read your tweets,” which sounds kind of like this might just be the third season of Celebrity Rehab, one that’s focused on sex addiction.
Those sex addicts in rehab for the new show include Amber Smith, who appeared in both Celebrity Rehab 2 and Sober House, is perhaps the most recognizable star.
The other five cast members TMZ identified are Nicole Narain, a former Playmate who was in the Colin Farrell sex tape; Penny Flame, a porn star; Kendra Jade, a porn star; Kari Ann Peniche, who appeared in Playboy and lost her Miss United States Teen title as a result; and Duncan Roy, an English writer and director.
