Kari Ann said her experience on Dr. Drew's reality shows were awful. "Did you see the shows?" she asked.

"What happened on them was not the way that I wanted to get helped. It made it worse."

"This time I want to be in individualized treatment, I don't want to do boot camp, I don't want to be yelled at, I don't want to be yelled at by other patients and I don't want to say the serenity prayer," Kari Ann exclusively told

Kari Ann initially looked into Promises, but told that she didn't like that she would have to participate in group activities.

In addition to dealing with her crystal meth addiction she entered rehab to tackle other personal issues. "It is to work on me. I'm doing it myself because I want to be making the right decisions now. I want clarity and I want to make sober choices."

The former Miss Teen USA famously fought with country singer Mindy McCready after filming, accusing her of stealing her computer which contained the salacious home video of the married couple Dane and Gayhart.

Kari Ann released a single earlier this year with lyrics that seemed to mock her own life. "Hey doctor, doctor, I think I need some help. Sometimes I can't seem to control myself. Naked tape, Miss Teen...Christian Audigier and paparazzi stalking me," the club-ready track begins.

She told exclusively why she wrote the lyrics. "I wrote the song about all the crap that I have gone through since doing celebrity rehab and meeting Dr Drew.  It's my way of laughing and making fun of everything.

“I love Tiger Woods -- I come from a family of golfers but I also have a stuffed animal tiger I keep on my bed that always seems to be the third member of everything going on in my room so.... and also, I think Dr. Drew was fantasizing about me the whole show, so here is a lil' peek. Next time, tell the real story, not the fake TV land story, remember this is my life, it’s not to be played with."
