Rachel Uchitel's 'Celeb Rehab' Mega-Salary Revealed
Dr. Drew's crew offers Uchitel twice the normal fee.
More breaking news as Tiger Woods' former mistress Rachel Uchitel pursues lasting notoreity: we've learned how much money she'll make as a castmember on Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab...no wonder she checked in!
Rachel Uchitel will score twice the salary of what other members of the Celebrity Rehab cast will bank. While VH1 typically offers Dr. Drew's Celeb Rehab "patients" $250,000, our pals at TMZ report what went on behind the scenes of Rachel Uchitel's Celebrity Rehab negotiations:
"Sources connected to the production tell us Uchitel had originally turned down the show -- but after producers DOUBLED their offer and Dr. Drew personally paid Uchitel a visit, Rachel changed her mind. We're told Uchitel will make around $500,000 for her stint on the show.".
Meanwhile a VH1 source is re-stating that Rachel Uchitel's going to Celebrity Rehab to battle a pill addiction (remember she and Tiger loved Ambien-laced sex), but a source close to Uchitel has said that she's in rehab because she's a sex-aholic -- flip through our Uchitel slideshow, then get that story here.
