JEFF CONAWAY ON ADDICTION
Wednesday, April 02, 2008
Actor Jeff Conaway and his longtime girlfriend, Vikki, appeared on the Howard Stern show this morning. Conaway, who starred in VH1's "Celebrity Rehab," discussed his long battle with addiction. He says he was given alcohol as a child. His parents were never around and when he was seven, a guy took advantage of him and put him in a kiddie porn. Conaway says he's tried to commit suicide 21 times, usually with pills. He's much better since the show, but still takes plenty of heavy drugs for pain. Vikki admits, taking care of Jeff is like a full-time job.
Conaway says he's taking part in "Celebrity Rehab 2." He hopes the show will help him get off the pain medication. He says he and Vikki may soon have a reality show of their own.
