David Duchovny Checks Out Of Sex Rehab

Actor checks out of treatment for sex addiction, returns to wife Tea Leoni and family

People reports that actor David Duchovny has checked himself out of a rehabilitation center where he sought treatment for sex addiction. The actor, who entered the treatment facility voluntarily over a month ago, returns to wife of over ten years, actress Tea Leoni, and their two children.  As Duchovny returns to work on a new movie, one can’t help but note the life-imitating-art spin on this story: he currently portrays a promiscuous, vice-driven writer on the hit Showtime series, Californication.

YourTango’s Take: Whatever your views on sex addiction may be, you have to respect David for admitting there was a problem and making a commitment to his marriage by seeking treatment.  Kind of makes you question a relationship with a guy who won’t even commit to putting the seat down, doesn’t it, ladies?
