Dennis Rodman Bounces Into Rehab

Things aren’t going too great for Dennis Rodman lately.

In recent weeks he’s gotten the ax from Celebrity Apprentice and been fined nearly a quarter-million dollars for slapping a Las Vegas waitress’ butt.

And now, in perhaps a concession to the fact that he needs to turn his life around, Rodman has agreed to seek regular counseling in an outpatient rehab program, E! Online reports.

Friends of the former NBA star, who was once briefly married to Carmen Electra and dated Madonna, attempted to get him into an inpatient program last week, to no avail.

“Yes, they tried an intervention, but unfortunately Dennis refused to go,” says Rodman’s rep. “We all know how amazing he is when sober and we hope he gets there soon.”

Rodman didn’t refuse the outpatient program purely out of stubbornness. He partly did so because he’s eager to attend the Celebrity Apprentice’s reunion show, and his rep notes that Rodman “will be in New York City for the show’s finale next Sunday.”

Rodman may be there, but after all the havoc he caused during the season, the real question may be, will his former teammates and competitors let him in?
