Mindy McCready apparently doesn't have very fond memories of her Celebrity Rehab days, considering her roomie was the devil.

At least, that's what the country singer called model Kari Ann Peniche, who's now more famous for getting naked with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart than for any solo success or foible.

"She is evil personified, she is evil in human form. She will hurt anyone she can to make money," McCready told Access Hollywood in denying Peniche's accusation that the troubled songbird was the one who leaked the graphic Dane-Gayheart-Peniche tape.

"I did not want to be dragged into all this," McCready said. "I did not want to be a part of this."

And neither did Peniche, who exclusively told E! News last week that she is "not some swinger person or somebody you can pay to have sex with."

Certainly good to know. Peniche told us that she had no idea the tape was not in safe keeping until she got a call from Dane and his attorney asking, "'You know the video we did? Somebody has it, and what to do we have to go to get it back?'"

Dane, who was "obviously upset," called her up and asked her something about McCready, as well, Peniche said.

Shortly after the tape hit the Internet, the swimsuit designer told that McCready vengefully stole her computer hard drive when the ladies were bunking together.

"If I was going to leak it, I would have done that a long time ago," she told E! News. "If someone else was going to leak it they would have done it a long time ago…I would never leak this tape."

And by the way, she added: "There was no sex—he's married! We were just having fun.

Meanwhile, Dane and Gayheart opted to get out of town for the weekend. (Wonder why...)

The couple and their dogs drove up to Montecito, Calif., Friday for a stay at the luxurious San Ysidro Ranch. They returned to L.A. on Sunday.

Tune in Monday and Tuesday to E! News at 7 and 11:30 p.m. for our full interview with Kari Ann Peniche.


There may have been no sex in this one, but there was plenty in these.
