Try to Make Him to go Rehab

No, you’re not hallucinating from drinking too much party-pool water. Local celebrity and singer-songwriter Rustyn Vaughn Lee (of Rustyn Vaughn Lee & The Experience) was recently spotted storming off the set—er, job—on his first day as the general manager of Rehab. The incident was caught on tape by the reality TV series Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, now in its third season. The episode is set to air in September on TruTV.

Based on juicy reports of that day’s shoot, we’ll watch Lee fire a cabana attendant right outta the gate, only to be confronted by Rehab’s higher-ups for his power trip. Lee walks off, tendering a not-so-tender resignation and effectively putting an end to his character arc.

The only catch is: Lee does not now, nor has he ever, worked at Rehab. Like so many of his kind (read: beautiful), the hometown hottie with the killer pipes is said to have been hired through one of Vegas’ many talent agencies to play make-believe for the cameras. It’s all in a day’s (faux) work.
