Stephanie Pratt was busted for a DUI last month, and now the Hills star is trying to make things right by going to rehab. Spencer Pratt‘s sister will enter a 30-day Los Angeles residential rehab facility as her first step toward sobriety following her her arrest outside Holly Montag‘s birthday party.

Originally, her lawyer tried to argue that she failed the sobriety test due to the four-inch stripper boots she was wearing. “There’s no impaired driving or driving that indicates she was under the influence,” her attorney John Bryan Artz said. Prosecutors did not buy the stripper-boot defense however, as Stephanie blew two breath tests, one with a .09 alcohol level, just above the state’s legal limit of .08. “She’s trying one day at a time to do the right thing in respects to her life and facing whatever issues she may have,” her attorney said. “She’s taking this case very seriously, and she’s taking the issue of alcohol very seriously.”

If convicted, she faces up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine. Hopefully for her this doesn’t go the way of fellow DUI recipients Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. [Source: NYDN; Photo: Getty Images]
