LOS ANGELES, March 9 (UPI) -- VH1 says Michaele Salahi has been dropped from "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" because she didn't meet the criteria for the U.S. reality series.

Salahi is a cast member of "Real Housewives of D.C." She and her husband, Tareq, earned additional infamy when they crashed a state dinner for India at the White House in 2009.

"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."
