Long Islanders Michael Lohan, the father of Lindsay Lohan, and adult-film actress Amy Fisher, who served prison time for the 1992 shooting of her lover Joey Buttafuoco's wife, will be among those seeking recovery in season five of "Celebrity Rehab," a VH1 spokesman confirmed to Newsday Monday.

Lohan, 50, said in a statement over the weekend that he was "participating in the show to deal with issues of codependency, to stop getting involved with and living through people who have addictions, who exhibit negative behavior and to avoid living vicariously through them."

Citing medical confidentiality, the spokesman could not release Fisher's addiction.

Season five starts airing in early summer. VH1 also confirmed actresses Sean Young and Bai Ling, actor Jeremy Jackson and White House party crasher Michaele Salahi.

But the VH1 spokesman would not confirm the rumored appearance of Dwight Gooden, who owned a condominium in Port Washington during his World Series-winning career with the New York Mets.

"It is not true for now," the spokesman said. "People tend to commit and drop in and out. Sometimes you don't know until the last minute."
