Celebrity Rehab IV is recruiting Fergie, The Duchess of York, for this season’s show, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The VH-1 show featuring Dr. Drew Pinsky is looking for more star power and now they’re pursuing royalty!
The timing is perfect. Fergie was embarrassed on video in a sting by a British newspaper. She was selling access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew and has now admitted she was drinking at the time.
She told Oprah Winfrey that she was not in her “right place” when the incident happened. And by that we can assume it was the alcohol talking!
At one point on the video she holds out her hand and moves her fingers in a “gimme, gimme” motion as she talks about payment.
That embarrassment, however, could be the cure for a show that is apparently suffering from a lack of star power.
Tila Tequila recently announced that she agreed to appear on the show and has a prescription pill problem. RadarOnline.com reported exclusively that Tila snorts Ambien.
The idea to lure Fergie is in the very early stages but execs believe it could be exactly what they need for a great season.
