Michaele Salahi has been kicked out of Celeb Rehab. The reality star who is best known as the ‘White House gate crasher and then the most hated housewife on The Real Housewives of D.C. has now been told she can’t participate in Celebrity Rehab because, well, she’s not an addict and the show is about celebrities dealing with their addictions.
“The treatment program that Celebrity Rehab documents is intended for individuals with serious substance abuse and addiction issues,” VH1 said in a statement Tuesday night.
“Prior to the taping of the current season, producers were advised that Michaele Salahi met the criteria to be treated in this setting. However, professional assessments spanning from that time to the present, found that she did not meet such criteria.”
Naturally, Michaele and her husband, Tareq Salahi are saying this is all unfair and accusing Dr. Drew and the show of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act since Michaele is said to have multiple sclerosis.
Are you kidding me? Last week Tareq Salahi told reporters Michaele was addicted to chocolate. Come on. That’s an addiction. But isn’t she supposed to be anorexic? Can you be addicted to chocolate AND anorexic? I don’t know. Of course, there’s that nasty little addiction to being on reality shows, party crashing and not paying bills. But that’s another story. Maybe no one else would agree to be on the show if Michaele Salahi didn’t get kicked out of Celeb Rehab.
