The new cast for Celebrity Rehab was announced earlier today and Uchitel’s name was on the list of those that will be Dr. Drew’s rehab show.
TMZ is now reporting that the show doubled their initial offer from $250,000 to $500,000 to land Uchitel. It also took a personal visit from Dr. Drew to persuade Rachel to do the show.
However, one source close to Rachel claims that she developed a crush on Dr. Drew during his visit to persuade her and that helped her decide to do the show.
Can we be honest? Dr. Drew’s visit did nothing to persuade her to commit. It was simply her slick move to get the producers to double her rake from the show.
This is the same woman that staged a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, in an attempt to blackmail Tiger Woods, only to cancel it minutes before it was to start, upon getting a $10 million dollar settlement from the golfer.
