Mindy McCready gives us early scoop on the crazy upcoming season of 'Celebrity Rehab'

Mindy-McCready_lThe third season of VH1’s addiction reality show Celebrity Rehab promises to be a doozy when it kicks off in January. This time out, Rehab-ers include former country star Mindy McCready, Mackenzie Phillips, Kari Ann Peniche (of McSteamy nude-tape fame), Heidi Fleiss, and Tom Sizemore.

McCready — who endured a major downfall after her multi-platinum breakthrough in the mid ’90s, complete with jail terms and suicide attempts — tells EW that it was quite an experience. Though she says she went on CR just to get “a big fat check,” she now credits the three and a half weeks she spent taping it this summer with saving her life. “I have put myself in harm’s way in almost every relationship I’m in,” she says. “I know now. I am a beacon for anybody that wants to take advantage of me.” She’s also come away with a fresh perspective on the scale of her problems, thanks to the misadventures of her CR cohorts. “I thought I was the most messed-up person on the planet,” McCready says. “I’m not even close.” During the show’s friends-and-family weekend, McCready sang a song she wrote in jail called “I’m Still Here.” Witnesses say it was phenomenal. Even Tom Sizemore cried.

    Wasn’t Fleiss and Sizemore once a couple and he went to jail for abusing her?
