Celebrity Rehab lost one reality TV cast member when Michaele Salahi was booted for not actually having an addiction other than to reality TV show cameras, but there is another reality show cast member among the celebrities at the Pasadena Recovery Center: Survivor Gabon runner-up Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, who also appeared briefly on Survivor Heroes vs. Villains.
Last Tuesday, Sugar wrote on Twitter, “I’m going AWAY for a few weeks… And I won’t be able to fb or twitter… Outcome will be good…” Earlier this week, she wrote, “I just wanted to check in and let ya know I’m alive… And SOBER… (gasp!)” Rumorfix confirmed that she’s on the show and said she “is addicted to alcohol.”
Sugar, you may recall, was fine with her zero votes on her first season of Survivor, during which she was emotional over the recent death of her father. Before the game, she told me about being recruited for the show and her acting career. In her second appearance, she told me about a pre-game romance and after she was kicked off, revealed that Parvati had pre-game knowledge of Russell Hantz.
