A week after crashing Celebrity Rehab and getting kicked off for not having an addiction, Michaele Salahi’s mom is now defending her daughter, comparing this latest fiasco to the infamous White House incident.

“It’s something you’re invited to go to, then you’re thrown out!” Rosemary Holt tells RadarOnline. “She never said she had an addiction,” adds Rosemary.

“I know the whole story from the time she left here and the paperwork she’d done and the contracts. She was asked to come on, it wasn’t her choice to come on. She was asked to,” says Rosemary, going on to insinuate that there were other reasons the show asked Michaele to come on. “She was brought on, she was told to talk about her feelings, how she survived the White House, her feelings, how she dealt with Bravo and when she went before Congress…,” she says. “That’s what she was brought on for. Then all of a sudden she’s there…the things I heard why she was there…I said ‘you don’t belong there.”

It’s not over yet as Rosemary goes on to ponder how the show could just kick her daughter off. “They signed a contract with my daughter, but yet they can put her out?! Explain that to me. But Missy has to remain with her confidentiality. It should work both ways.”

Allrighty. In other news, RadarOnline also reports that all hell broke loose on the set of Celebrity Rehab over the weekend courtesy of cast member Michael Lohan.

Apparently, it was ‘family day’ and professional famewhore Michael wanted daughter Lindsay Lohan, his youngest daughter “Ali, and the rest of the family to come for ‘family day.’ Michael even wanted Dina to come. They all refused, they don’t want to appear on camera in that setting, period. Michael was very upset and emotions were very raw for him. Soon, thereafter, all hell started to break out between other patients and families,” a show insider reveals, adding that viewers will be in for “quite a shock when it airs.”

Celebrity Rehab 5 is set to premiere sometime in May on VH1.

And as for the ABC 20/20 special about reality television that was scheduled to air this past Friday, it didn’t air as it got bumped for coverage of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster. As of the moment, ABC has yet to announce a new airing date for the special titled “The Phenomenon of Reality Television.” The show was supposed to feature interviews with Michaele, Bethenny Frankel, Kyle Richards and others.

Rosemary Holt, mother of Michaele Salahi of the Real Housewives of DC, is now speaking out in defense of her daughter.

In an interview with RadarOnline, Rosemary has some fighting words for Michaele’s co-stars following the Thursday reunion episode.

Rosemary described watching the reunion show as “heartbreaking,” stating that Michaele, 44, who she refers to as Missy, warned her ahead of time. “Miss said to me, ‘Mom, be prepared,’ and I see her not looking good on the show either. Physically I can see the strain in her face. What I encouraged her to do is ‘Miss, don’t get to their level,’” she said.

“I wish it would have been a nicer show,” she added. “Every single one of them [the Housewives shows] always has one [person] that gets more abuse than the others.” Rosemary even went as far as giving her opinion of each of the DC Housewives -

On Cat: “[She’s been] cruel. She wants that attention and who does she pick on?… My relatives call me and talk in Florida and New York. Cat wants the position that Missy has and I believe it… She needs to go back to England. She’s representing that country very poorly here. Very, very poorly.”

On Lynda: “She is a poor excuse for a mother too. Lynda rides the middle of the road most of the time in my opinion, she tries to play both sides.”

On Stacie: “Stacie is at least civil at times and if she doesn’t join the group I feel then she could be an outcast.”

On Mary: Rosemary claims Michaele recommended Lynda and Mary for the show. “When she was first interviewed for this she recommended some of the ladies—Lynda and Mary. I started watching it a year ago last March. I said ‘Miss, you don’t want to see this, you will be the one that they abuse!”

And when it comes to Michaele and husband Tareq Salahi’s financial troubles, Rosemary makes certain to take any blame away from her daughter. “It’s not Michaele and Tareq. Tareq started the Polo. Missy’s name as far as I know is not on paper, is only associated with him with her being as she always says, ‘I’m the fluff’ who walks around and greets everybody. Financially, Missy has no knowledge of the Polo game,” said Rosemary.

Rosemary also claims Michaele did not marry Tareq for his money. Apparently Michaele signed a prenup before marrying Tareq (his mother insisted), and she had her own money from her years as a makeup artist according to Rosemary. “She had her own assets. She had quite a bit of money going on that she earned on her own,” she said.
