Another place the infamous White House party crasher isn't welcome --VH1's Celebrity Rehab.

According to a rep for the show, Michaele Salahi mislead producers about the nature of her addiction. "The treatment program that Celebrity Rehab documents is intended for individuals with substance abuse and addiction issues," a rep said in a statement to UsMagazine.com. "Producers were advised that Michaele Salahi met the criteria to be treated in this setting. However, professional assessments found that she did not meet such criteria."
