Jennifer Gimenez may be known to some as a reality star but she’s certainly not letting that brand her. Not only does Jenn have roles on shows such as Rehab with Dr. Drew and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she has also been working on a memoir, appearing on CNN and Headline News, and she’s getting back into acting!

On Sunday, Jenn will be seen in this Sunday’s premiere of VH1‘s new series Rehab with Dr. Drew. Jenn is a rehabilitation technician and will be leading her knowledge and skills to aid Dr. Drew in helping addicts beat the fatal disease. The show is much like Celebrity Rehab but this time around, they will be helping non-celebrities which makes it pretty wild considering this cast has nothing to lose and no image to uphold.

Jenn is certainly one of a kind — has there been any one else out there that can juggle two such dramatically different reality shows? Sure, there have been reality stars who have gotten spin-offs, but that’s one in the same.

In Jenn’s case, she is on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which certainly can get a bit out of hand, but not necessary in a dangerous, life-changing way. For example, during a party that her best friend Brandi Glanville was throwing, cast mate Taylor Armstrong had a complete emotional break-down which lead most of her cast mates getting involved in a yelling match — it wasn’t pretty.

Of her gig on Housewives, Jenn explains, “It was let loose time for me. I get to say things that are kind of funny or whatever, and you’re allowed to do that there.” While she stays true to herself on Rehab as well, it’s more of a working environment.

“On Housewives, even though there was drama, it was a lot less dramatic. I’m talking about saving lives on Rehab, I’m talking about helping people and showing them that they should give themselves a chance to live and that they are worthy of it.”

To see Jennifer Gimenez at work and saving lives on Rehab with Dr. Drew, tune in to VH1 every Sunday night at 8/7c. As for her return to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that will be seen later this year.
