Michaele Salahi has been kicked off Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab because she lacked the one thing you need to enter rehab – an addiction!
A production source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that The former Real Housewives of D.C. star was released from the show on Tuesday because she failed to show any signs of addiction.
“Michaele Salahi was discharged by Dr. Drew Pinsky approximately one hour ago. Michaele has a ton of issues but she clearly has no addiction issues, whatsoever,” says the source.
“Michaele was a distraction to other cast members, and was complaining that Dr. Drew wasn’t properly treating her MS.
“Dr. Drew did a thorough medical examination of her, including a full neurological check-up, and she is fine. Michaele is all drama, that is her main issue.”
But according to her husband Tareq, who spoke exclusively with RadarOnline.com, Michaele only agreed to do Celebrity Rehab to get help from Dr. Drew for her Multiple Sclerosis.
“She was really leaning on Dr. Drew who is a respected doctor to get her through some of the issues after the White House, when she went to Congress, when she went into relapse with her Multiple Sclerosis. She takes this very seriously.”
Tareq adds that Michaele takes her condition seriously and that it was the show that wanted her to pretend to be something she wasn’t. Tareq says he now has plans of exposing the makings of reality shows on national television.
“My wife takes her health situation very seriously, she has a real diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. You know, we can show you a bunch of emails about what they wanted her to pretend to be, therefore, but that’s going to come out later on with one of the major networks.”
“See the first episode of busting some of these reality shows open on ABC News 20/20. There will be a special on Friday and maybe more to come after that.”
Calls to ABC News 20/20 for comment have not yet been returned.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Michael Lohan also checked into Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab. Michaele Salahi’s husband Tareq had been living in Michael’s West Hollywood apartment while she filmed the show.
On Monday night, Lohan was furious at Tareq, claiming he owed him rent for the apartment, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned. According to a source close to the situation, Tareq has promised to pay Michael $2,500 to stay in the apartment for three weeks. When the money wasn’t paid promptly, Michael left the Pasadena Recovery Center, with cameras in tow, and confronted Tareq at the apartment.
RadarOnline.com was on the scene when Michael returned to the apartment with a camera crew from Celebrity Rehab and the Pasadena Recovery Center to evict Tareq, and according to Lohan, he was successful.
