American Idol alum Nikki McKibbin is headed back for some more reality television experience. Except, this time, instead of competing for a career in music, the season 1 contestant is just trying to get sober.
VH1 announced yesterday that Nikki will be joining an interesting group of names on the new season of Celebrity Rehab. On the roster this time around is Rod Stewart's son Sean Stewart, model Amber Smith, Rodney King, Guns N Roses rocker Steven Adler, actress Tawny Kitaen and Gary Busey -- and yes, everyone's favorite belligerent addict and CR veteran, Jeff Conway.
Nikki will be the second Idol to face her demons on TV (and no, I'm not referring to Simon) as she follows in the footsteps of messed-up pal Jessica Sierra.
All I can remember about Nikki, from the Kelly Clarkson-winning year, was that she had weird hair and a young son. Hopefully she gets the help she needs for his sake.
