Michaele Salahi ekes out 20 minutes of fame

OMGBBQ, can you believe what just happened to Michaele Salahi?

You didn't hear about it because you have no interest in vapid reality starlets who bring no value to the nation's political discourse? Well, we can agree there.

Here's the skinny: Salahi, of White House dinner crashing fame, apparently was all set to appear on "Celebrity Rehab," that paragon of medicinal wellness, hosted by Dr. Drew. Producers first believed that she met the criteria for the show, though now it appears that she doesn't.

This leaves the reader to question, how can one not qualify to appear on a rehab show, unless they have no addiction to recover from? Check out the quote from the story and see what you think:

"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," VH1 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."

Sounds like there's one housewife whose quick descent into anonymity was starting to claw at the inside of her head. Is it possible that someone got so attached to reality TV fame that they would try to get back on TV, no matter the show, just to have cameras film their sad lives?

I think Salahi needs to read Heidi and Spencer's book.
