Update: Michaele Salahi is off “Celebrity Rehab,” after all that

Well, that was fast: Michaele Salahi is off “Celebrity Rehab.” On Monday, VH1 confirmed that the reality starlet from Northern Virginia had joined the cast; Salahi released a statement saying she would focus on “the private pains and personal struggles she endured” after crashing a White House state dinner, according to the Warren County Report. One day later, the show cut her loose. In a statement, VH1 said the program’s treatment is “intended for individuals with serious substance abuse and addiction issues. 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.” Guess addiction to fame doesn’t count.
