America's Next Top Model courted some major controversy on its season finale tonight, as finalist Angela Preston was disqualified... with little explanation provided.

Sources say she was given the boot for leaking spoilers about the cycle, while some go as far as to validate this claim... and add that she was actually named the winner, until The CW was forced to reshoot the finale. The network, meanwhile, simply said in a statement:

"After production wrapped on the current cycle of America's Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale."

That shocking development resulted in a rather anti-climactic conclusion, but Lisa D'Amato took home the crown after dominating on the runway.

For winning the first-ever All-Stars cycle, Lisa earned a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl, along with a spread in Vogue Italia and a guest correspondence role on Extra.

"It's crazy! It's absolutely crazy! I feel incredible," said the 30-year old after hearing her name called as the champion. "To be honest, my confidence actually comes from a very vulnerable place. It's not that I'm over-confident. It's just that I have to life myself up every day. I have a lot to prove. I feel like the universe finally came around for me and I'm not going to let anybody down. I won America's Next Top Model All Star. It's pretty damn cool."

This just in: the following developments are signs that you might have a drug or alcohol problem....

  • ... carrying on an affair, as a 15-year old, with a married, steroid-using professional baseball player.
  • ... making a living as a Hollywood madam.
  • ... dating Cisco Adler.

Unsurprisingly, therefore, Mindy McCready, Heidi Fleiss and Lisa D’Amato (all pictured below) are among the cast members for VH1's third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

Joining these stars that hope to milk their pain and suffering for an extra 15 minutes of fame and fortune on the show are:

  • Former NBA star Dennis Rodman
  • Actress Mackenzie Phillips
  • Actor Tom Sizemore
  • Playboy model Kari Ann Peniche
  • Alice in Chains' Mike Starr
  • Real World: Hollywood's Joey Kovar

The series will premiere in early 2010 and cover a 21-day program led by Colgate University graduate Dr. Drew Pinsky.

Call us cynical, but if these people really wanted help, they wouldn't seek it on a reality TV show.
