Michaele Salahi

Michaele Salahi has been kicked off of the new season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, VH1 announced Tuesday.

"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," the network said in a statement Tuesday. "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."

VH1 announced just last week that the Real Housewives of D.C. star would be part of the Season 5 cast, which includes Michael Lohan, Amy Fisher and Sean Young.
