J-Wahl Repentant and out of Rehab

Two months in rehab has apparently changed Jason Wahler for the better. Or so he'd like you to think, I'm sure. Jason was ordered to serve his sentence in a rehabilitation center rather than a jail - jealous, Paris Hilton?

And speaking of the socialites, Wahler was quick to defend fellow law abuser Lindsay Lohan whilst speaking to People: "I relate to Lindsay. [She's] the same age as I am. I'm only 20. And to say that I can't ever drink again, even on my 21st birthday, is hard. But I don't care, as long as I'm healthy and happy." Suuure, Jason. We bet you won't ever touch another drop of alcohol. Ever.

He went on to seemingly justify his past misdemeanours, saying, "Anyone who's big in Hollywood, who's underage, gets in [to clubs]." Wahler brandished a fake ID when rarely asked for proof, and seemed to turn from a light social drinker to someone who partied too much and too often upon his arrival in LA in 2006. He apparently considered this 'normal'. That might have something to do with his nasty breakup with fellow Laguna Beach alum Lauren Conrad, then. Jason explains that he continued this party lifestyle "until [he] started becoming someone [he was] truly not", and explains it was a factor in the couple's bitter split. "I did try drugs, but it was never my thing. It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out."

In the September of 2006, Wahler and then-girlfriend Kristin DeLuca got into a brawl with a tow-truck driver and this led to a conviction on a misdemeanor battery charge. Then on April 8th this year, Jason was charged with criminal trespassing and assault after passing out in a hotel lobby and then punching the security guard in Seattle. Jason says he is "embarrassed as hell", but "really [does] not remember [his] arrests. They're blackouts. And that's scary." You bet.

On April 12th, Wahler submitted himself to Chapman House, an inpatient facility near to his home in Orange County, CA. He told People that ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad has been to visit. He is now dating tennis player Katja Decker-Sadowski (pictured right with Wahler) who studies at USC.
He says about his strict time at Chapman House, "It's exhausting, but after I started getting back to my senses, it was cool to get up in the morning and not be all hurting."
Well, we'll take your word for it Jason - but we're expecting no miracles.
