Former Atlantan Eric Roberts Tweets from ‘Celebrity Rehab’

eric_roberts_tweet2

Academy Award nominated actor Eric Roberts, who grew up in Atlanta along with his sister Julia, is now on VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.”

A film actor in his early years with an Academy Award nomination for “The Runaway Train” in 1985, he’s done more TV recently. He was on the sitcom “Less Than Perfect” from 2002 to 2006, had a recurring role on the recently axed NBC show “Heroes” and plays Seth Blanchard on the Starz show “Crash.” He’s also appeared in videos by the Killers, Eminem and Mariah Carey.

What is he in rehab for? We don’t know for sure but his Tweet to the left may give you some clues.

How he managed to sneak access to his Twitter account is a little odd but hey, it’s a reality show.

Among the other participants are Frankie Lons, mom of Keyshia Cole; actor Jeremy London; model Janice Dickinson and Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel.

The season will air in the fall.

If you need to be in rehab for weed, you’re not doing it right.

Unbelievable. Washed up semi-celebrities try to revive marginal careers by going into “rehab.” Dr. Drew is a disgrace to real professionals who try to help people with real addictions.

Did you see Eric on that Joshua Tree ep of Entourage? The one where they dropped acid and Ari got lost? Maybe that’s why he needs rehab. That, or more screen time.

I think Bob Saget’s character said it best in the movie ‘Half Baked’ about the notion of someone being addicted to weed and needing to go to rehab.

Rodney why won’t you call out the 2 Live Stews for their lie the other day, claiming that President Barack Obama would be on the show? It’s one thing to play it as a joke, but to play it straight just to get listeners to listen through a commercial break-isn’t that the lowest of the low?
