Camille, 41, a former Playboy model, is citing irreconcilable differences. She is also seeking primary physical custody of their daughter Mason, 8, and son Jude, 5, as well as spousal support.
What makes this divorce filing odd however is the fact that the couple was pictured together (see above pic) at the Tony Awards just 2 weeks ago on June 13th. The couple have been married since August 1997 and their two children were both born via a surrogate due to Camille’s problems with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Camille, who also goes by Camille Donatacci, is currently filming for the first season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Filming started back in March.
Though the all new franchise of the Real Housewives of D.C. doesn’t premiere until August 5th, Bravo has released a sneak peek video giving us a taste of what is to come!
As we previously reported, the infamous White House party crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi will be a focal part of the show. The preview video also shows the Salahis as they prepare to crash attend the White House dinner.
Bravo has described the D.C. ladies as “connected D.C. power players,” who “have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society.”
And if you think Michaele is the only scandalous character on the show, you are surely mistaken. Introducing you to Catherine Ashley Ommanney(pictured far left), the mother of two sold a story to the British tabloids back in 2006 during which she claimed to have made out with a then 22-year-old Prince Harry. Catherine told the tabloids she was 34 at the time (2006) but multiple media outlets have her listed as being in her forties today.
It has also been reported Catherine and her husband Charles Ommanney have separated since the show stopped filming. Apparently doing the reality show put a strain on their marriage.
The Real Housewives of D.C., set to premiere August 5th, has already proven to be Bravo’s most controversial housewives franchise, though an episode has yet to air.
Bravo officially announced the cast of the DC housewives this week, and white house party crasher Michaele Salahi is part of the cast, but this isn’t exactly a shocker considering the DailyBeast revealed months ago that Michaele would indeed be on the show.
Joining Michaele on the reality show, from left to right (pictured above), are Catherine Ommanney, Stacie Turner, Mary Amons, and Lynda Erkiletian.
Bravo describes the DC ladies as “connected D.C. power players,” who “have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society.”
And as for the controversial decision to put Michaele Salahi on the show? Andy Cohenhad the following to say –
“We kept Michaele in the show because she has a compelling life story, distinct relationships with the other women, and most especially because she represents a very real example of the inextricably intertwined worlds of political connections with social hierarchy. To the people who might excoriate us and say we’re making Michaele famous or glorifying what she did: ‘here’s what’ — we don’t make shows to make people famous and as a corollary, we don’t view being on a television show either as a reward or a punishment. That’s up to the individuals who choose to do so and the people who choose to watch and react.”
Michaele and her husband Tareq Salahi were never charged or prosecuted by the white house though presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers did lose her job as a result of the incident.
The Photos and Bios of the Ladies Below –
Michaele Salahi, 44 – Even before the white house incident, Michaele and hubby Tareq were notorious for their flamboyant polo matches and a long-running family feud over their Oasis Winery in Fauquier County. Raised in Oakton, Michaele worked at Nordstrom before marrying Tareq in a splashy 2003 ceremony. Though she turned up with camera crews at Redskins cheerleader alumnae events, the organization denied she was a member. A lot of people are also claiming the Salahis owe them money.
