Whitney Houston enters rehab program for drugs and alcohol


Whitney Houston's career resurgence officially took a detour back into rehab, with the singer heading to outpatient treatment, People reports. Don't go thinking she's back to the pipe just yet, though.

"Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment," her rep tells the mag. "Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process." TMZ adds she entered the program 10 days ago, and can go out in public as long as she remains monitored.

But the program isn't really because she fell off the wagon, the site says. A source claims "she's cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie." Would that be the one about the brilliant singer who became addicted to crack and ruined a promising celebrity career? Because we've seen that one already.
