UPDATE: Michaele Salahi has been booted from “Celebrity Rehab,” according to TMZ. Apparently, the fame-seeking reality star — aka one half of the notorious White House gatecrashers — has “no addiction” and “no reason to be there.” That Dr. Drew sure is a smart cookie! How Salahi ended up on the show in the first place is another matter.
According to her husband Tareq Salahi, Michaele was “leaning on Dr. Drew to help treat her [multiple sclerosis], which has been directly affected by our ordeal with the White House. What she needs is help managing her stress and her illness.”
Dr. Drew’s got a new crew…
A new season of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” is under way and the cast of “characters” allegedly participating is quite interesting. (As is often the case, the word “celebrity” should probably be replaced with “Notorious People from the 15 Minutes of Fame Hall of Fame.)
Here are the names rumored to be among the cast, according to TMZ and Entertainment Tonight.
~Heidi Montag, MTV reality TV star and plastic surgery victim
~Sean Young, ’80s actress and “Skating with the Stars” alum
~Michaele Salahi, D.C. White House gatecrasher and “Real Housewives of D.C.” cast member
~Michael Lohan, meddling father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan
~Amy Fisher, better known as the “Long Island Lolita,” who shot the wife of her lover Joey Buttafuoco
~Dwight “Doc” Gooden, former New York Mets pitcher
~Bai Ling, sometimes an actress

Season 5 of the popular VH1 reality show begins taping Wednesday, with the “celebrities” getting 21 days of treatment from destructive celebrity specialist, Dr. Drew Pinsky.
