LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Hollywood might seem like town full of people battling addiction, but according to TMZ, “Celebrity Rehab” has been postponed after failing to find big enough stars.
TMZ reported that the reality show with Dr. Drew was slated to start shooting today, but it has been postponed after the show was unable to fill out the cast.
Tila Tequila and former “Hills” bad boy Jason Wahler were reportedly slated to star in the VH1 series.
According to TMZ, the producers reportedly offered Lindsay Lohan $1 million to star in the show – plus the opportunity to star in another series - but the 23-year-old star turned down the offer.
Past celebrities who have appeared on the series include Daniel Baldwin, former “American Idol” contestant Nikki McKibbin, Gary Busey, Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman and Mindy McCready – the latter of whom was hospitalized last week after she became unresponsive after taking pain pills for a broken toe, her mother, Gayle Inge, previously told Access.
