Can they all just get sober?
Rodney King will appear in the next installment of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." The VH1 show features famous people dealing with drug and alcohol problems aided by celebrity addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky.
King's 1991 beating by Los Angeles police led to deadly rioting the next year, prompting him to make a famously earnest plea for peace. He'll appear on the show with "Grease" star Jeff Conaway, former Guns 'N Roses drummer Steven Adler, Rod Stewart's son Sean, and actress Tawny Kitaen.
The network did not specify what substance problem King would be
seeking treatment for.
