Amy Fisheris all grown up.
The frizzy-haired "Long Island Lolita" has evolved into a sleek 36-year-old woman. After jail time, she pursued a career in the adult film industry, which she says led to her drinking problem. Now, Fisher is seeking treatment for alcoholism onCelebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
"I don't need rehab," she tellsEntertainment Tonight. "But I think I made for an interesting cast member."
"I don't even keep alcohol in my house," she adds. "Basically, I would get drunk before I would make adult films… Sure, you get drunk, and you forget about it. That doesn't mean you're an alcoholic or you do this on a regular basis."
In 1992 at age 17, Fisher shotJoey Buttafuoco's wife Mary Jo in the face. Despite the shooting, Fisher and Buttafuoco continued on their romance, which led to his conviction for statutory rape in 1993.
