Dennis Rodman's next calculated meltdown to come on 'Celebrity Rehab'

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Dennis Rodman, who used to be a pretty good rebounder in the NBA, apparently wants to get clean. At least that's what one would assume since the former championship-era Bull is among the newest cast of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew." Those who are more pessimistic will probably assume it's Rodman's way of keeping his cartoonish mug on our televisions any way he can.

From the VH1 blog:
"The show will follow Mackenzie Phillips (One Day At A Time), Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman, Mindy McCready (country music singer), Lisa D'Amato (America's Next Top Model), Mike Starr (Alice in Chains), Kari Ann Peniche (ex-Miss United States Teen) Joey Kovar (Real World Hollywood), and Tom Sizemore."

The question, then, isn't whether a Rodman-Fleiss love tryst will occur, but in which episode.

Since he ended his career as a basketball player in 2000, Rodman has made a career of appearing as himself, with the results usually ending in him storming off the set. (See: "Celebrity Apprentice," "Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling,"  "Geek To Freak," "Celebrity Love Island," "Celebrity Big Brother," "Celebrity Poker Showdown" and "The Mole.")

While we can only hope that the star of "Double Team" and "Simon Sez" can find sobriety in "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew," we're pretty sure it's not the real reason Rodman's on the show. But Rodman forced to remain sober while stuck in a house with this guy:
