I don’t know about you, but I miss Michaele and Tareq Salahi. Best known for crashing a White House State Dinner in 2009, they can be blamed for the cancellation of the ill-fated Real Housewives of D.C., a franchise that was noted for its lack of drama and for the higher IQ points of their cast members. The remaining housewives refused to film if Michaele was kept on the cast, and Bravo, knowing that only she would bring the drama (and the LOLs) promptly went ahead and eliminated the show from their schedule.
Never daunted by anything, the Salahis continued their reign of fame-whoredom. She even made an appearance on Celebrity Rehab, until she was kicked out for not actually having an addiction. Since then, the pair have only been in the news due to Michale and Tareq’s divorce, which in their usual fashion, happened in a truly ridiculous manner.
Michaele left Tareq for Journey guitarist Neal Schon, a relationship she called a “fairy tale.” Let’s not forget she ran off with Neal, after Tareq reported her missing (after calling his pals at TMZ, of course), when in reality she had finally had enough of Tareq’s BS. Proving he’s made of nothing but class, Tareq found solace in the mesh arms of Michael Lohan.
So, it was no surprise at all to see Tareq gracing the front page of TMZ yet again with a new attention-grabbing scheme. This time, he has filed a lawsuit against Neal for $50 million dollars. He’s been talking about this lawsuit for a while now, and has finally filed in it in his home state of Virginia.
I’m ashamed to say that the lawsuit (kinda) makes some sense: Tareq claims that he and Michaele had a few business and television offers on the table, which were no longer available to him after his divorce (the Salahis are a package deal, after all). While I believe the Salahis probably did have offers for things like opening up a 7-11 or celebrity wrestling, I don’t believe, as Tareq claims, that Dancing With The Stars was ever a realistic offer. But, still, Tareq kinda has a point here.
In a more disturbing piece of news, Tareq also alleges that Neal sent him a photo of his penis, and also called to let him know, “I’m f**king your wife.” Tareq called it, “a metaphorical slap in the face.”
Tareq is suing Neal for “emotional distress, conspiracy to defame, interfering with a contract and defamation” and as an extra-special bonus, he wants $450k in punitive damages.
We wish Tareq the best of luck in his penis picture lawsuit. Michaele on the other hand, seems pretty content being a rock-star girlfriend and the pair even showed off their true love in the following video for Journey‘s song, Resonate. I must warn you that you shouldn’t eat while watching the video. You might get sick or ruin your computer when you bust out laughing at the sight of Michaele walking down the beach pensively in sepia-tone. Or when you see her and Neal swapping spit on the sand. You’ve been warned!
