Playboy says no to Michaele Salahi

Playboy has rejected Real Housewives of D.C. star Michaele Salahi as a model for the pages of their magazine!

Playboy says no to Michaele Salahi

Michaele Salahi was hoping to get her own spread in Playboy, and even shot a pictorial for the iconic skin mag -- but the Real Housewives of D.C. star was flatly rejected and sent to nudie model's no-man's land: The Playboy website.

In an email to Salahi, Playboy informed her, "There is no opportunity this calendar year to offer you a cover opportunity or place for your pictorial."

"We had hoped an issue would be available to present you in the pages of the magazine first. However, that does not seem likely and we do not want to keep them from our readers any longer."

So the photos will appear on the website instead -- the place where Playboy publishes the girls who are still cute and still willing to take it all off, but not pretty enough or famous enough for the magazine.

Michaele Salahi has had to face a lot of rejection lately. She was kicked off of Celebrity Rehab because she doesn't have any actual problems. Real Housewives of D.C. was canceled and labeled the least successful out of the entire series. Now this.

Whatever is a fame-hungry girl to do?
