Brooke Mueller Is 'Receiving Professional Help'

Despite reports, Brooke Mueller has not re-entered rehab but is only seeking "professional help," according to her rep, Elliot Mintz.


In a statement to "Extra," Mintz said: "What we are really talking about here is not rehab. That is a term we are painfully familiar with. Brooke is receiving professional help in the area of stress management. She recognized that it would be in her best interest to deal with personal issues involving stress that have the potential of challenging her sobriety."

"By seeking proper guidance, she will be able to continue to resist returning to old behavior patterns. There is no shame in asking for help when it is called for. I have been informed she is doing well."

Mueller recently told "Extra" in an exclusive interview that she learned to "put my priorities straight, and to focus on doing the next right thing in front of me. As long as I do the next right thing, I'll be all right."

She is concentrating on being a good mom to her 1-year-old twins, Bob and Max, and is "looking forward to the future."
