The sad, tabloid drama featuring Michaele and Tareq Salahi continues to get more national publicity, for some reason. The couple that came into the public consciousness when they crashed a party at the White House and briefly appeared on 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' is making headlines again after Tareq reported his wife missing only to find out that she'd run away with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

Tareq sat down with Matt Lauer for an emotional, uncomfortable 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) interview. Lauer pressed Salahi about why he didn't see this coming. "You recently went to a Journey concert, went backstage, took video of it," Lauer said. "I considered Neal a best friend ..." Tareq responded, "I'm betrayed in my view, by not just my wife, but also by Neal."

by Chris Harnick, posted May 12th 2011 1:30PM
Michaele SalahiFor some reason, Michaele Salahi has recorded a song. 'Bump It' tells the story of a person who likes her beats loud, not about the as-seen-on-TV hair accessory to give your instant hair volume.

From what we've learned from the song, the star of Bravo's now-canceled 'Real Housewives of DC' and wannabe 'Celebrity Rehab' cast member needs to dance, "belongs on stage" and oh so much more.

Some choice excerpts from what we predict to be the next hit single of the century.

Will someone please hurry up and dance with me?/Will someone please hurry up and dance with me?/Because I'm alone on the dance floor.

Tareq, where are you?

Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the series was in jeopardy, and now 'The Washington Post' reports that Bravo officially pulled the plug on the 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Thursday.

According to the 'Post,' the production company behind the series contacted the cast to let them know Washington's contribution to Bravo's reality TV franchise would not be picked up for a second season.

The cancelation makes 'D.C.' the first 'Housewives' series not to receive a second season. Andy Cohen, Bravo's executive vice president of original programming and development, said, "We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity."

Michael Salahi Offends Cat on D.C. 'Real Housewives'Part 1 of 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Reunion (Thu., 9PM ET on BRAVO) was definitely more composed than the 'Jersey' edition, when Teresa Guidice forcefully shoved host Andy Cohen during an altercation with Danielle Staub. Still, there were revelations to be made and tears to be shed.

Michaele Salahi told Cat Ommanney that she "made a lot of people cry," but the only person she could come up with was herself. She started tearing up again, saying, "I can't believe somebody could have that much hate within them." Cat said she didn't hate Michaele, but she didn't believe the tears either. "She fakes everything," she told Cohen.

Michaele then turned nasty.

'The Real Housewives of DC': Who Loses an Invitation to the White House? (VIDEO)

Michaele Salahi, 'The Real Housewives of DC'Michaele Salahi of 'The Real Housewives of DC' (Thu., 9PM on BRAVO) may have lost her invitation to a state dinner at the White House, but that appears to be the least of her problems. Her mind is clearly in a million different places at once, but hardly ever where she actually is.

When her hairdresser asked to see the invitation, Michaele went out to look for it, and was distracted by virtually everything she saw. "Definitely gonna need these," she said about some bracelets she found while looking through her coat. Then, when her chauffeur opened the door, she blurted, "There's the umbrella," before getting back on task. Maybe she just verbalizes her thoughts, you say?

How about when the producers got involved, asking if she was still looking for it. "Well, I don't know," Michaele responded. "Who has it?"

Michaele Salahi: Is Her 'Real Housewives of D.C.' Future Uncertain?

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 21st 2010 6:30PM
Michaele SalahiCould Michaele Salahi, the White House party crasher and star of 'Real Housewives of D.C.' be too much of a drama queen for the Bravo reality series? Maybe.

According to the New York Post, if the cable network picks up the reality series for a second season, Salahi will not be a part of it.

The newspaper is reporting that Half Yard Productions, a Bravo subcontractor, is searching for a new woman to join the program. However, the network released a statement to PopEater negating the story.

"We've had no discussions about a season two -- including any casting -- and won't until the freshman season concludes," a Bravo spokesman told PopEater. "Any speculation to the contrary would be absolutely premature. And let's face it, it wouldn't be a proper 'Real Housewives' franchise without the drama of casting rumors."

They were escorted out.

After the Four Seasons b-day bash of honorary "sixth housewife" Paul Wharton, his publicist Charlotte breaks the news. On the big day, she received a call from their attorney saying, "'I need to you to put in writing that my clients, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, are not going to have to pay for this party,'" Charlotte explains. "They were threatening not to come unless I could put in writing that they weren't going to be held liable."

"They just wanted to give the appearance that they were hosting," she says to a shocked Paul. He thinks that explains why Michaele was a no-show, and why Tareq only brought one bottle of wine. "That's not what a good friend would do," he says. Ya think?
