'Celebrity Rehab 4': Jeremy London, Rachel Uchitel, Eric Roberts try to sober up

By Liz Kelly

The fourth season of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" premiered last night with a brand new line-up of D-listers looking to get clean. This time around, we're spared the drama between Heidi Fleiss and ex Tom Sizemore, but fear not -- they've been replaced by Franken-faced Janice Dickinson, one-time Paris Hilton pal Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis and Eric Roberts (yes, that's Julia's brother and Emma's dad.)

After the jump, a quick rundown of this season's cast:

Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis: Famous for being a rich kid who once palled around with Paris Hilton, the intensely unlikeable Davis is in treatment for addiction to heroin, various other opiates and obesity.

Janice Dickinson: The self-proclaimed "first supermodel" is seeking help for addictions to shopping, plastic surgery and prescription drugs (and, mayhaps, reality shows?).

Leif Garrett: You may remember him as the guy I had a crush on when I was seven-years-old. Or perhaps as a pop singer and actor. These days he's an addict who was last arrested for heroin possession in February.

Jeremy London: The "Party of Five" actor made news in June when he claimed he was kidnapped and forced to smoke drugs at gunpoint. Whatever the case, he's ready to get sober.

Frankie Lons: Nope, we had no idea who she was either until we read VH1's bio page: "Frankie Lons is R&B singer Keyshia Cole's biological mother." Okay. She's looking to squash her addictions to drugs and alcohol.

Rachel Uchitel The first woman to surface as one of Tiger Woods's alleged mistresses says she was driven to prescription pill addiction because of "negative media attention." We're sure this time away from cameras will help.

Jason Wahler: The reality show "star" -- who has been arrested for multiple DUIs -- has graduated from MTV's "The Hills" to VH1's "Celebrity Rehab." Well done.

Eric Roberts: He's been nominated for an Academy Award (as best supporting actor in 1985's "Runaway Train") and two Golden Globes (as best debut actor in 1978's "Gypsies" and again for "Runaway Train"), is the brother of mega-superstar Julia Roberts and father to budding starlet Emma Roberts. He had a somewhat memorable role in 2008's "The Dark Knight." He also claims he's addicted to pot.

I'll say what I said in this mornings post, LOVED the premiere of Celeb Rehab, though I have a hard time believing that the dude that's calling himself "Leif Garrett" is the same baby faced girly boy I papered my walls with & made wedding plans with in 6th grade.

I knew I shoulda been a Shaun Cassidy fan instead, he's alive & well & made cool shows like American Gothic, Roar & Invasion. If I'd known he was so dark sided I would've totally dumped future heroin addict Leif for future successful producer Shaun.

You know you pay too much attention to American politics when you read the phrase, "Franken-faced Janice Dickinson" and think, "that's unfair to the Junior Senator from the Great State Of Minnesota."

Noooooo. If Eric Roberts sobers up, he won't make any more SciFi channel movies. We need a sequel to Cyclops and MegaShark.
