'Surreal Life' Star Tawny Kitaen Enters Rehab

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (December 19, 2006) — Tawny Kitaen, who starred in the 1984 Tom Hanks comedy, “Bachelor Party,” has entered a drug rehabilitation program after pleading guilty to possessing 15 grams of cocaine.

The 45-year-old actress will be allowed to change her plea to not guilty after completing the program, under terms of a plea agreement, officials said. The plea change will remove the conviction from her record.

Kitaen was charged with felony possession after sheriff’s deputies said they found cocaine in her apartment in May.

She was arrested in 2002 on charges she abused then-husband, former Angels pitcher Chuck Finley. She agreed to anger management and conflict resolution counseling in exchange for the dismissal of two misdemeanor counts of spousal abuse.
