'Celebrity Rehab' gets a timeout

Celebrity Rehab is put on hold
VH1 is taking a breather from rehabilitating celebrities this year.

"Celebrity Rehab" and its spinoff "Celebrity Rehab Sober House" are not part of the network's lineup for 2012, ShowTracker has confirmed. The controversial shows are hosted by Dr. Drew Pinksy, whose plate has recently filled up with other TV projects.

Although the shows have not been canceled, no details have been announced as to when they might return. Season 5 of "Celebrity Rehab" and season 2 of "Sober House" aired last March.

"Celebrity Rehab" has come under fire after the deaths of two former cast members: Jeff Conaway, who appeared in Season 2, and former Alice in Chains bass player Mike Starr, who appeared in the third season, died from bouts with their addictions.
