Call it maternal instinct, but Kari Ann Peniche‘s mother Lee Ann knew there was something off with her daughter’s housemate and Celebrity Rehab roommate Mindy McCready. On the heels of allegations that McCready released the steamy tape of former Miss Teen USA Peniche’s naked romp with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, her mother told RadarOnline.com that McCready stayed well past her welcome at Peniche’s home and simply refused to leave. The tension seemed to reach a breaking point as late as last week!
“Kari opened up doors and welcomed her when she had no place to stay and that’s a typical Kari Ann,” Lee Ann said. “The only thing I knew about Mindy McCready was that there was a problem and that she’s had to have her removed from her house.”

Lee Ann also revealed that McCready did not pay rent and “was only supposed to stay a few days but weeks went by and [Kari Ann] couldn’t get [McCready] out of her house.” Visiting her daughter last week, Lee Ann was already well aware of some tension: “I knew something was up when I was down there. As much as I knew she had some problems, not this, but problems with Mindy McCready, getting her out of her house.”
“I just know that Kari Ann was trying to get her to leave and was asking several people to help her and I don’t know how she finally got her out but Mindy would not leave… obviously it wasn’t a good situation and that’s where they’re at.”
