    Alleged White House party crasher Michaele Salahi -- the blonde reality star who cost Chicagoan Desiree Rogers her social secretary job -- debuted a new, ahem, talent in Miami Friday.

    The "Real Housewives of D.C." reality star made her live singing debut on our sister station in Miami.

    She said the song, which was released last month, is about moving on from different things and was inspired by her hectic life.

    Life for the Salahis has been nothing but hectic since the pair allegedly crashed the November 2009 State Dinner at the White House. The Secret Service said  the couple hadn't been invited to the dinner, but the Salahi's never admitted to any wrongdoing.

    "If you don't have that controversy, it doesn't make good TV and then there's no interest," Tareq Salahi said.

    Earlier this year, Michaele Salahi was kicked off the newest season of "Celebrity Rehab," for allegedly not having any form of addiction.

    "I never said I had an addiction," Michaele Salahi said. "The show reached out to me, and they said it would be a documentary. I have multiple sclerosis, and I think they really wanted to go a different route and add some different dynamics."

    But she said she had second thoughts when the show started.

    "I thought, 'wow, to be a part of something that would help my health' but then I got in and said this isn't really for me," she said. "I wanted to leave and then it gets spun a different way because it's cooler to have me kicked off."
