When DMX comes home from his Arizona prison stint, he’ll find himself back in the public eye. In addition to reports that the Ruff Ryder will headline his own tour, X, born Earl Simmons will join the cast of VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab.”
DMX will appear on the show’s third season. No other cast members have been officially announced as of press time. However, the New York Post reports that Sebastian Bach of Skid Row fame and Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss will appear as well.
The show’s resident drug counselor, Bob Forrest, confirmed DMX’s involvement.
“Celebrity Rehab” stars Dr. Drew (host of the syndicated radio show “Loveline”) and different celebrities each season. The show tracks the stars through 21 days of detoxification, treatment and group therapy at a residence in the Los Angeles area. Former cast members include former WWE wrestler Chyna, former “Family Members” cast member Jamie Foxworth, and Rodney King.
DMX was sentenced to 90 days in an Arizona jail in January on drug and animal cruelty charges.
