Reality TV star Tila Tequila has revealed the reason she’s signed up to star in the next season of Celebrity Rehab – she has become reliant on “prescription pills”.
The internet pin-up was announced as one of the stars who will appear on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s reality show, and now she has admitted she’ll be seeking counselling for a drug habit.
In a post on her official website, she writes, “I was in denial for a long time but it takes a brave and strong woman to not only admit to herself that she has a problem, but also let the whole world know about it.
“With that said, I know I am an extremely smart girl and to run all these empires when I am not even 30 yet is quite an accomplishment, however I finally admitted to myself that I cannot rely on taking prescription pills every day for the rest of my life!
“I must not be another Lindsay Lohan where I just flush everything I worked so hard for down the toilet for nothing.”
Tequila has endured a turbulent few months following the death of her partner Casey Johnson in December (09) – she injured herself in a fall at her Los Angeles home and alleges she suffered a miscarriage.
