Get a tape measure! You CAN indeed sink lower than VH1
Just as Fox News’ Newt Gingrich proudly shared his America boner, news has emerged that Michaele Salahi, the White House party crasher and re-animated mummy who stars on Real Housewives of D.C., has been thrown off of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Holy shit! Who knew Mrs. Salahi would enter Tila Tequila territory?
Apparently, while Salahi told producers she needed Dr. Drew’s rehab expertise to help her handle “the stress of managing her multiple sclerosis”, they eventually decided her problems didn’t meet the upstanding criteria of a show where D-List celebrities shiver and vomit on camera and gave her the boot.
So that’s pretty dumb and low, right? I’m not sure what’s more pathetic than lying about having a mental problem to appear on ~shudder~ VH1.
Thankfully, noted civil rights lawyer Tareq Salahi has come to his wife’s defense, claiming that firing her for not being an real life addict on a show about addiction is “a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act”. Well it’s good to see no one violated their right to unmitigated levels of chutzpah.
Here’s a compromise: let’s have all the worst members of the Real Housewives and all the worst members of Rock of Love and Flava of Love bitch slap each other to death for a few precious moments of camera time. Now that’s TV!
