In a statement, the network says, “The treatment program that Celebrity Rehab documents 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.  As a result, she is no longer participating in the program.” Still participating in season 5 of the series are Bai Ling, Michael Lohan, Jeremy Jackson, Amy Fisher, Sean Young, and Steven Adler.

    She’ll probably get kicked off of ‘The Biggest Loser’ next.

    • Miz

      Can we just change her and her husband’s names to “the biggest Losers” and be done with them?

  • Kilgore


  • Steve

    The sad thing is that she does have an addiction, the difference is that her addiction is to celebrity and attention.

    • b

      I was just about to say the same thing.

      • etm

        Me too!

      • oney

        Oh man I was gonna say “Me too” also!

      • JUMR

        ME TOO TOO

      • TheLrkingBat

        Me Three Too

        …or would that be Me Two Three Too?


    • Teresa

      Unfortunately, Dr. Drew is the last person who can help her with that.

      • James

        Completely agree. Dr. Drew is definitely addicted to attention and fame. Anyone who diagnoses people he has never met (illegal in the real medical profession) should not be allowed to give advice. They deserve each other.

  • Ethan

    Heh, Celebrity Rehab: encouraging non-celebrities to take on “more serious” problems so that they can become slighlty-more-exposed non-celebrities

  • Andy

    You mean she wasn’t addicted to Oasis wine?

    • Bob Frapples


  • Shelby

    Geez, she can’t even get addicted to something? Anybody could do that!

  • Rack

    That media-ho definitely needs some kind of therapy for her narcissistic personality disorder.

    • Anne

      I think she and Charlie Sheen are working on a development deal.

  • Will

    What was her addiction that the producers thought was passable…Nail biting?

    • TQB

      oo oo i have that, can i be famous?

  • dave

    Pretty sure you can’t cure famewhoring.

  • febreeze

    clearly, she’s addicted to winning and everyone knows you can’t cure that.

    • mrclean


  • Sophie

    How pitiful.

  • Lois

    Next she’ll be trying to move in with Charlie Sheen to get publicity.

  • ken

    This woman & her husband makes me sick! When she said Whoopie hit her Whoopie should have! If she thinks she looks like a socialite,
    she’s a poor imitation of one. They are both UGLY & act like they’re it.

  • KC

    Amy Fisher, Michael Lohan AND Sean Young?? oh, so WINNING!! LMAO!

  • Mad_Andy

    Celebrity Rehab? Is this how far we have sunk in this country to make a show about peoples addictions just based on the fact they are quasi-celebrities? Pathetic.

    Anyway, how can it possibly be a show when it doesn’t have the biggest name with “serious substance abuse and addiction issues”? And yes, I’m talking about that idiot Charlie Sheen.
