Glad to hear he got the help that he needed and he's doing better!!
via usmagazine.com In a telling new blog post for HuffPost Celebrity, Wahler opened up about his struggles with addiction and how his reality TV background fueled the flame and led to him almost dying.
"I was in the fight for my life, but I didn't realize it," the newlywed star revealed. "My mistakes and run-ins with the law always hit the wires because of my time spent on MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills. I was quickly becoming known as the non-stop partier from Orange County, when truthfully, I was just like any other alcoholic who was humiliated because of their spiral out of control. I knew that Laguna and The Hills weren't the source of my addiction, but the overnight success, fame and cash ignited my addiction much quicker."
Wahler's addiction became so bad that he almost took his own life at one point.
After completing Season 4 of Celebrity Rehab, Wahler was in a much better place. He made amends with Conrad, who got engaged to boyfriend William Tell last weekend -- the same weekend Wahler himself got married.
