Actor Jeff Conaway remains hospitalized in a coma after an apparent overdose, reportedly of pain medication which he took to recover from back surgery.
Tawny Kitaen, who starred with Conaway on season two of Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew knows the dangers of addiction herself and expressed her concern for Conaway, knowing the pain he was in as a result of his surgery. In a statement to the Washington Post she said “He has been battling this for such a long time. I saw first hand the 16 metal bolts he had going up his spine. He was in so much pain from his numerous back surgeries. I can’t imagine he could ever live without pain medication.” Kitaen continued, saying that Conaway “has a wonderful sense of humor and never took himself too seriously.” We wish Conaway the best and hopes he makes a full recovery from this.
