There's no denying the gals of E!'s Pretty Wild reality show are just that. Tess Taylor has decided to check into rehab for opiate addiction. According to TMZ, the brunette beauty had withered away to a measly 93 pounds when she decided to get help for her substance abuse issues. Taylor happens to be the sister of co-star and fellow addict Alexis Neiers, who became a household name for her part in the "Bling Ring" burglaries. In December, Neiers was popped for violation of probation when she didn't check in with her probation officer and police made a house call. There they found heroin, burnt aluminum foil and a fake driver's license. Neiers managed to dodge the jailbird bullet and received one year in a live-in drug treatment program. Ironically, that's the same amount of time that adopted sister Taylor will spend in a facility. The gals' mother Andrea Arlington gave TMZ the dirty details saying, "Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis Neiers and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess Taylor contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help." She added that the wannabe model was "extremely weak and exhausted from trying to detox and recover from Opiate addiction." Birds of a feather do rehab together. Hopefully, they'll go from Pretty Wild to Pretty Sober. Or there's always Celebrity Rehab as a back-up plan.
