Former reality star and model Tess Taylor is the latest celebrity to check into the Pasadena Recovery Center. As it so happens, famed addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky is at the helm of the popular rehab center. The 22-year-old brunette beauty, who starred on the E! reality show Pretty Wild, has an extensive history with drugs. She's perhaps best known as the sister of Burglar Bunch convict Alexis Neiers. In January 2011, she managed to make it through a whole 30 days of a 12-month treatment program for opiate addiction. Obviously, it didn't do much good since she was arrested for felony drug possession in January. Sources say the only ones quitting anything were Taylor's family, who had all but given up on the addict. Supposedly, they're helping foot the bill for the pricey rehab. In addition, Taylor's due a paycheck of $20,000 from Sofia Coppola for her role consulting on a Burglar Bunch movie. Andrea Neiers, Taylor's adoptive mother, tells TMZ she has high hopes for the wild child: "I hope Tess takes this opportunity to work on herself and become someone she will be proud of and who can help other young people avoid making the same choices." It won't be a surprise to see Taylor featured in an upcoming season of Celebrity Rehab or Sober House.
