Jason Wahler: Reality TV turned me into a junkie

When Jason Wahler signed on for MTV’s Laguna Beach, the then-17-year-old got instant fame. Now Jason, 24, tells Life & Style the all-access perks were his downfall — leading him down a path of addiction that eventually landed him on the latest season of Celebrity Rehab. “I would drink anywhere from five to 20 vodka drinks a night,” Jason tells Life & Style about getting into clubs at age 18. “I couldn’t stop.”

Soon, the out-of-control young star blew through his money, was in and out of rehab seven times and had six drinking-related arrests. “Rock bottom was when I saw what my addiction was doing to my family,” he says. “I just didn’t want it anymore.”

So Jason vowed to get clean and was 67 days sober when he joined Rehab in July 2010. Now, 200 days sober, he remains in touch with the entire Rehab cast however, has yet to hear from the show’s addiction specialist, Dr. Drew Pinsky. “To be honest, Dr. Drew didn’t give me much advice, and he doesn’t really stay in touch with anyone,” Jason tells Life & Style.

Jason Wahler: “I Am Ashamed of Everything”

Former Hills star Jason Wahler says he felt incredible “shame” when he made headlines again last weekend for his sixth alcohol-related arrest in recent years. A week prior, online video footage also surfaced of Wahler, 27, being cuffed by Mexican police in Cabo San Lucas March 11 after he allegedly got into a club brawl.

“I am very, very ashamed of everything,” he tells UsMagazine.com. “I am very sorry for everything that’s happened.”

So what went wrong for Wahler, who claimed in 2007 that he had cleaned up his act and even did a stint with inpatient rehab?

About six months ago, he tells Us he moved back to Orange County from L.A. and enrolled in the University of Phoenix in Fountain Valley, Calif., hoping to earn a business degree.

He even began going to AA up to five times a week. “I had a sponsor and stuff,” says Wahler. “You know, the whole thing.”

While traveling to L.A. “doing the whole movie stuff,” he says he “got distracted” and “started falling out of the program … I lost contact with my sponsor.”

He slowly began drinking again. “It was one drink or a few,” he says. “It wasn’t a binge or anything.”

On March 19, he was taken into custody at 10:54 p.m. for DUI while driving a 2008 Chevy Tahoe. He likely will face jail time.

He declined to talk about the incident, but he tells Us, “I think everything happens for a reason. God did that to me, so maybe I would be at [rock] bottom and want to climb my way to the top.”

With the help of his new girlfriend and friends and family, he returned to AA this past Wednesday.

“It’s all about getting back on track,” Wahler tells Us. “My girlfriend, my parents, my brothers, my sisters and a handful of my best friends are willing to do everything to keep me out of trouble.

“I never want to drink again,” he adds.

He says he’ll also avoid L.A. “unless it’s crucial for work. If I do go, I will go with my father or somebody who is a sober support. But I definitely won’t be going out!

“If I don’t stay sober,” he tells Us, “I am not going to have a life.”

Jason Wahler Accused of Drunken Shoe Attack

Former “Laguna Beach” star Jason Wahler got beach-slapped by the law Friday night after Laguna Beach cops say he got drunk and threw his shoes at people … seriously.

According to law enforcement sources, Wahler got into a scuffle with a bouncer at the Ocean Avenue Brewery and eventually got himself ejected.

Somehow Wahler made his way back inside, cops said, and the bouncers had to toss him out again.

But here’s the best part: Witnesses say a frustrated Wahler then removed his shoes and fired them into the bar — and when security came out to remove him permanently, Jason allegedly threw a punch.

Cops soon arrived on scene and arrested the reality reject for battery and public intoxication.

Wahler still had 11 days left on his probation stemming from a drunken, racist, homophobic, violent tirade back in 2007– which means he’s gonna get in even more trouble if convicted.

Jason Wahler has called off his engagement from Katja Decker Sadowski, 21. “I have decided to end my engagement, and it’s an amicable split,” the Hills star, 22, tells Us. Wahler — who has also dated Lauren Conrad — says they’re “still good friends. “We agreed we are both just too young to be considering getting married right now,” he added.

Last June, Sadowski (a University of Southern California student) told Us she wanted to wed “sooner rather than later. “But my parents want me to finish school first and that won’t be until 2010,” she said. “So we want to do it probably a little bit before graduation, but I need my parents’ help to plan the wedding!” The actor is currently shopping around a dating reality show called Jason and the Cougars.
