Sean Stewart Is Back – to Dish About His ‘Sober House’ Stint (and Dr. Drew)

Having recently wrapped Season 2 of the hot VH1 reality series, Sean will update the delicious duo on his progress.

He’ll also dish about how he wound up in rehab in the first place, what he’s doing to stay sober, and whether he still talks to the show’s resident shrink, Dr. Drew Pinsky.

Plus, Sean – who recently moved from L.A. to the Big Apple – will reveal details about his own TV show.

As for Sean’s sometimes-chilly relationship with his dad – superstar rocker Rod – well, you’ll have to tune in to see what’s been going down on that front.

Amber and Kelly have also got their trademark club report queued up.

This week’s pick? The Hudson Hotel Bar on West 58th Street in Manhattan.

While too many celebs to count are fans of the deco palace, we do recall spotting on-again, off-again couple Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer cozying up there last summer.

Celebrity Rehabber Jeff Conaway: Clean, but Not Always Sober

Though he has come a long way in his efforts to kick his substance- abuse habits, Jeff Conaway still can’t resist a belt every now and then.

Interviewed on The Radio Happy Hour, the Grease star – who left Season 2 of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab after a confrontation with host Dr. Drew Pinsky – says an occasional nightcap helps him sleep.

“Next time I see [Dr. Drew], I’m going to say, ‘Ha-ha! I told you so!’” Jeff (above) tells us.

“Next time I see Dr. Drew, I’m going to say, ‘Ha-ha! I told you so!’” Jeff (above) tells us.

“Do you realize that you’re announcing your sobriety on a show called The Radio Happy Hour?” host Dr. Blogstein asks Jeff.

“Well, cheers!” quips the actor, who’s best known to TV fans as Bobby Wheeler from Taxi.

“Are you off every- thing – even pain medication?” continues Dr. B.

“No, we’re cutting back on my pain medication and we’ve started a slow detox. And I’ll have a drink once in a while.  I’m not a drinker, per se. But if I feel like having a nightcap before bed, it helps me sleep,” says Jeff.

Having undergone a series of operations to repair an old back injury that left him wheelchair-bound, Jeff is also feeling upbeat about his progess on that front – so much so that he gets in a few digs at his former TV shrink.

“Dr. Drew told me, ‘Forget it, it’s all over.’ He told me, ‘You’re never going to get better. This is as good as it’s going to get.’

“And I refused. I said, ‘You think I’m buying that? I’m going to walk again. I’m going to stand straight again. I’m going to be without pain again . . . This is something that’s going to happen.  And it’s actually happening.”
