Michaele Salahi Bankruptcy

Tareq Salahi and Michaele Salahi

Bravo’s newest hotmess Michaele Salahi continues her reign of being in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

UsWeekly is reporting, via the Washington Post, that the Real Housewives of DC star and her husband Tareq Salahi were presented with court papers from PR firm Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications during their private premire party on Thursday.

The lawsuit is regarding the more than $15,000 in unpaid fees the couple allegedly owes the PR firm from a 2008 polo event.

“It was an affidavit for debtors interrogatory,” Steve Winter, president of BWF, said. “It means they’ll have to appear in court to discuss their financial means — how they are capable of paying off the debt.”

In other Salahi news, RadarOnline is now reporting today that Michaele and her hubby are hoping to come out with a Barbie doll in the image of Michaele.

“The Salahis want to produce a Barbie Doll of Michaele in her red sari dress — the same outfit she wore when ‘gatecrashing’ the White House,” said one source, who was familiar with their grand plan. “They even, ambitiously, want to sell the rights of the doll to Mattel or another toy maker in the hopes it could generate worldwide sales and become the next Malibu Stacy.”

The Salahis business plan doesn’t end there as they also want to come out with a Halloween costume. “They also want to make Halloween costumes of themselves and sell the rights to a major store, such as Wal-Mart,” adds the source.

Coming out next month? The release of the couple’s new book, Cirque Du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust, which will reportedly detail their White House crashing fiasco.

And move over Teresa and Joe Giudice! There’s a newer and more morally bankrupt Bravo couple in town! While the Salahis pretend to be high class, rubbing elbows with the nation’s elite on the Bravo reality show, it seems they have a lot more in common with the Giudices from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Like Teresa and Joe, the Salahis also have a history with bankruptcy and state court filings. RadarOnline reports that in 2004, an Aston Martin, worth $150,000 and a $90,000 boat were repossessed, as part an auction. This was in addition to unpaid bills for limousine services, tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt and even unpaid parking tickets.

Who else is having a forced auction on Aug 22?  None other than the Giudices of course!  Must say Bravo has a special gift for finding these types of people for their shows.

More details are being revealed about the now infamous White House dinner party crashers, Michaele Salahi and husband Tareq Salahi. Michelle, a former Redskins cheerleader, is one of the Bravo housewives cast to be on the upcoming Real Housewives of D.C., which is currently being filmed.

Most reports and articles portray these two as being wannabes, posers, desperate social climbers who might also be broke. A quick look at Michaele’s facebook album will reveal photos of her with a number of celebrities ranging from Oprah, Jack Black, Matt Damon, Fergie, Star Jones, Ashley Judd, and even reality star Omarosa. This clearly exhibits the first sign of a poser – one taking an excessive number of photos with celebs to prove they are in the “in crowd.”

A CNN report paints the couple in a worse light, as they have been named in 16 civil cuits, and have left quite an extensive paper trail in federal bankruptcy and state court filings. One of their court cases includes a long court battle with Tareq’s parents over their family winery. Court records show Tareq sued his mother, Corinne, and the case was dismissed. Corinne sued Tareq and the case went to trial. Tareq and Michaele won control of the winery in 2007, but it has run into debt since then. The winery filed for bankruptcy back in February, and owes over $900,000 in debt.

In addition to federal bankruptcy, Tareq and Michaele may now face criminal charges. If they lied to federal agents in order to get into the White House dinner, that is a federal crime, says Fran Townsend , CNN national security contributor.

Bravo released the following statement regarding Michaele, “Michaele Salahi is under consideration as a cast member, as such Half Yard Productions were filming the Salahis on that day. Half Yard was only aware that per the Salahis they had been invited as guests.”

Not exactly sure what Bravo means by saying Michaele is “under consideration” to be a cast member. To my knowledge, she has already been cast and has been filming for months along with the other D.C. housewives. To sum this up, unless Bravo decides to do away with the DC franchise all together, there’s a 100% chance Michaele will be coming soon to a Bravo channel near you.
