In a heartwarming scenario whose only logical conclusion involves Kirstie Alley, Leah Remini, Greta Van Susteren and Jenna Elfman in pink satin jackets singing "We Go Together" on a fairground set up at the Hollywood Scientology Center, Jeff Conaway has found an unlikely guardian angel in the fight against his long list of powder- and pill-based demons: his Grease co-star John Travolta. Inside Edition reports:
"Taxi" star Jeff Conaway...says he has finally kicked his drug habit by practicing Scientology. Conaway: "I've been doing Scientology...My doctor was like holy cow, he says whatever you've been doing keep doing it because it's really working."
Conaway says his former "Grease" co-star John Travolta introduced him to the controversial religion. "John and I stayed friends but he couldn't watch me going down the tubes...He gave me a whole library of Scientology books and he's given me an auditor who comes almost every day."
Regular watchers of VH1's Celebrity Rehab know just how life-threatening Conaway's disease is, with a cure seeming beyond the scope of Dr. Drew Pinsky's science-myth qualifications. An aggressive Hubbardian approach, therefore, might be exactly what the "Krazee" singer needs to dry out, as its amazing how quickly one can overcome the OxyContin cravings when you're locked inside a sauna for days with only a handful of vitamins for sustenance, forced to watch the occasional video of a duct-tape-bound Vikki holding up that day's newspaper to prove she's still alive.
