No Celebrity Rehab for Capriati

by: Ed McGrogan July 19, 2010

VH1 has unveiled the list of cast members for the upcoming season of Celebrity Rehab. Thankfully for Jennifer Capriati—and the tennis community at large—the former No. 1 is not on it.

After Capriati overdosed on prescription medication last month, rumors were swirling that the show’s star and producer, Dr. Drew Pinksy, was recruiting the ex-pro to be the program’s headliner. It's not clear when or where talks fell apart or who opted out of the proposed appearance. But what is clear from the show’s cast list is that Capriati has managed to dodge this reality TV bullet.
