Gary Busey Checks in to 'Celebrity Rehab'—as a Counselor

Could the cure on season two of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew be worse than the disease?

VH1 has announced the participants for the second season—which is slated to debut in October—and it sounds like it'll be a doozy once again. Season-one alum Jeff Conaway has reupped for another stint. His grim appearance at this year's TV Land Awards suggests he's a long way from overcoming his cocaine, booze and painkiller dependencies.

The cast will include Gary Busey, who, as a self-professed teetotaler of 13 years, will hover zanily over the whole affair and help guide the cast through the recovery process.

Uh-huh, that's right...Gary Busey. Whose brains are probably still scrambled from his 1988 "No helmet? No problem!" motorcycle crash. Who freaked out Jennifer Garner with his bizarre, grope-happy cameo on this year's Oscars broadcast. Who claims he has given his life over to Jesus. And who will probably try to "cure" the contestants by subjecting them to poison snakebites.

Shouldn't show host Dr. Drew Pinsky's license be revoked for this kind of negligence?

Conaway and Busey will be joined by '80s music-video siren Tawny Kitaen, American Idol alum Nikki McKibbin (also returning from last season), former Guns N' Roses skin-slapper Steven Adler, Rod Stewart scion Sean Stewart, model-actress Amber Smith and Rodney King, who has been in and out of trouble since his 1990s police-brutality videotaping sparked the L.A. riots, despite being awarded $3.8 million.

May God have mercy on them all.
