Celebrity Rehab alum Jeff Conaway breaks neck in fall



Tbd-jeffconaway012010 One show we do watch is Celebrity Rehab, so we feel sad to hear that Jeff Conaway (formerly of Grease and Babylon 5), was rushed to an L.A. hospital Tuesday after falling down a staircase at his home, TMZ reports.

Conaway's co-dependent girlfriend, Vikki Lizzi, says the 59-year-old actor suffered a broken hip, broken arm, fractured neck and a brain hemorrhage. He is undergoing emergency surgery for his injuries, but it may be some time until we know how he's doing.

Jeff's storyline was heartbreaking on Dr. Drew Pinsky's show, in which Conaway revealed he had been the victim of child pornographers and worse, leading to his addiction. We also saw that addict girlfriend Vikki was just as likely to beat Jeff as he was to hit her, so we're awfully curious about what happened here. More details will emerge, we're sure.
