According to a new report, Celebrity Rehab is going on an indefinite hiatus.

RadarOnline states that while the sixth season featuring Michael Lohan, Amy Fisher, and Bai Ling is currently airing on VH1, any new season following that is up in the air.

The reason? Dr. Drew Pinsky no longer has time to do the show. “The decision was made to put the show on hiatus because Dr. Drew Pinsky is just too busy to continue to do the show,” reveals a source connected to the show.

“Dr. Drew can be seen nightly on HLN’s Dr. Drew Show, and this fall, he has another television project he is going to be involved with, Life Changers, which is a Telepictures show,” the source states adding that the amount of time it takes Dr. Drew to do ‘Rehab’ is a “tremendous” amount of time.

The source also reveals that Dr. Drew is hoping this hiatus is temporary. He would “absolutely love to revisit doing the show again in the future when he has the time. Dr. Drew really enjoyed doing the show, even though it could be very emotionally grueling at times.”

Perhaps this could also be related to recent Celebrity Rehab headlines as two of the show’s alums, Jeff Conaway and Mike Starr, passed away this year. Mike died of a drug overdose while Jeff passed away due to complications related to prescription drug use.

They simply refuse to disappear.

Weeks after they reportedly crashed a Suberbowl suite at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, TMZ is now reporting that the gruesome twosome known as Tareq and Michaele Salahi have signed up for Celebrity Rehab.

Yes, sources connected to the show confirm to TMZ that the Salahis, stars of the Real Housewives of DC, alongside some others have signed on for Celebrity Rehab season 5.

Other “celebs” joining the Salahis? Michael Lohan – daddy to troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, Bai Ling – Z list actress, Jeremy Jackson – former Baywatch actor, and Dwight “Doc” Gooden – former pitcher for the NY Mets.

A new report by TMZ also reveals that Lindsay Lohan is livid that her embarrassment of a father has signed up to do the show.

Lindsay was reportedly “shocked and upset” to hear the news, telling friends she’s worried he’ll embarrass the family. Sources add that Lindsay is most upset that her dad, Michael, began taping the show without giving her a heads up. She is also adamant she will NEVER make an appearance on the show.

As for the Salahis, no word yet on their supposed addiction. Michaele did reveal a while back that she had multiple sclerosis, so feel free to try to determine which drug or alcohol goes best with the BS MS.

UPDATE: VH1 has confirmed the cast today and Tareq will not be a part of the show though Michaele will be. Below is part of the official press release -

“This season will follow Michael Lohan (celebrity dad), Michaele Salahi (The Real Housewives of DC), Amy Fisher (“Long Island Lolita”), Bai Ling (The Crow) and Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch) on their quest for sobriety. Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is slated to premiere early summer on VH1.”

While Michaele is the one actually doing the rehab, it is safe to assume Tareq will crash the show at some point during the season to help support his wife‘s fame addiction.
