Michaele Salahi

Rosemary Holt, mother of Michaele Salahi of the Real Housewives of DC, is now speaking out in defense of her daughter.

In an interview with RadarOnline, Rosemary has some fighting words for Michaele’s co-stars following the Thursday reunion episode.

Rosemary described watching the reunion show as “heartbreaking,” stating that Michaele, 44, who she refers to as Missy, warned her ahead of time. “Miss said to me, ‘Mom, be prepared,’ and I see her not looking good on the show either. Physically I can see the strain in her face. What I encouraged her to do is ‘Miss, don’t get to their level,'” she said.

“I wish it would have been a nicer show,” she added. “Every single one of them [the Housewives shows] always has one [person] that gets more abuse than the others.” Rosemary even went as far as giving her opinion of each of the DC Housewives –

On Cat: “[She’s been] cruel. She wants that attention and who does she pick on?… My relatives call me and talk in Florida and New York. Cat wants the position that Missy has and I believe it… She needs to go back to England. She’s representing that country very poorly here. Very, very poorly.”

On Lynda: “She is a poor excuse for a mother too. Lynda rides the middle of the road most of the time in my opinion, she tries to play both sides.”

On Stacie: “Stacie is at least civil at times and if she doesn’t join the group I feel then she could be an outcast.”

On Mary: Rosemary claims Michaele recommended Lynda and Mary for the show. “When she was first interviewed for this she recommended some of the ladies—Lynda and Mary. I started watching it a year ago last March. I said ‘Miss, you don’t want to see this, you will be the one that they abuse!”

And when it comes to Michaele and husband Tareq Salahi’s financial troubles, Rosemary makes certain to take any blame away from her daughter. “It’s not Michaele and Tareq. Tareq started the Polo. Missy’s name as far as I know is not on paper, is only associated with him with her being as she always says, ‘I’m the fluff’ who walks around and greets everybody. Financially, Missy has no knowledge of the Polo game,” said Rosemary.

Rosemary also claims Michaele did not marry Tareq for his money. Apparently Michaele signed a prenup before marrying Tareq (his mother insisted), and she had her own money from her years as a makeup artist according to Rosemary. “She had her own assets. She had quite a bit of money going on that she earned on her own,” she said.

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of DC reunion aired last night and it did not dissapoint, so let’s get right to the recap!

The reunion starts out with host Andy Cohen asking the ladies what political party they are aligned with. Mary and Lynda are registered Republicans, with Stacie and Michaele being Democrats. Something tells me the Democratic party would rather do without Michaele’s support.

Andy wastes no time in getting down to business as he brings up Michaele’s BS MS claims. Lynda, along with the rest of the world, isn’t buying it and wants to know how Michaele could live & eat the way she does all while having MS for 17 years. Another aspect to this claim that hasn’t been discussed is why and how Michaele never mentioned the MS on the show. How could someone filming a reality show for months about their personal life leave out such a MAJOR factor?

It all ends tonight! The first season of the Real Housewives of DC that is.

Airing tonight is the reunion show during which the ladies will finally get to confront the Salahis on their many lies and BS. One can only hope the reunion stage has no back door or garage exit for which the Salahis will try to use in an attempt to escape taking any responsibility for their actions.

A Bravo press release reveals, “The ladies hold nothing back as they discuss Cat’s rocky marriage, Michaele’s recent admission that she battles Multiple Sclerosis, Stacie’s continuing search for her birth father and more. The men of D.C. join their ladies on the couch and things get heated as they confront Tareq Salahi about breaking the “guy code.”

Hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, some of the most burning questions are answered: What is the state of Cat’s marriage? Which of the wives set up Lynda and Ebong to meet? Was Michaele really a Redskins cheerleader? What do the women really think of Tareq? Does Stacie think Cat is a racist? As well as a Housewives staple – who’s gotten Botox? And of course, we get even further into what exactly happened on the night of the White House State Dinner.”

Also on tonight’s episode of WWHL, all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which premieres tonight, will be guests on the show.

A preview clip of the reunion show is below –

Following a short 9 episode season, the finale of the Real Housewives of DC aired Thursday night on Bravo.

The episode starts out with the continuation of the Salahis getting ready to crash trash a White House party. The gruesome twosome decide to phone in to Stacie to brag about their big night. Tareq brings the lols when he mentions he would have invited Stacie if he had the ability to get her tickets. It gets even worse as Tareq brags in his interview that even former Presidents are turned away from the dinner.

Just watching these two and knowing they had no invites to the event is beyond creepy, and is it just me, or did Tareq look a tad bit nervous in the limo? And I have to question the audacity of these two, crashing trashing a White House party with no invitations, a bright red sari, and camera crews in tow. Upon getting to the first check point, we find out the Salahis’ names are not on the list. They are told to stand around but instead, it looks like the Salahis just kept on walking on in.

The Real Housewives of DC

Tonight is finale night for the Real Housewives of DC, as we get to see the aftermath of the Party Crashers Trashers known as the Salahis.

So what can we expect from the 1 hour, 15 minutes supersized episode of the show? According to a Bravo press release, tonight’s episode will document the aftermath of the White House State Dinner last November and the ensuing media frenzy surrounding the event. The other housewives learn, along with the rest of the country, of the events of that night and the questions swirling around the Salahis. The episode captures the reactions from Stacie, Linda, Cat and Mary as they hear the news, as well as Michael and Tareq’s initial response to the accusations by the media that they crashed the dinner.

Immediately following the show, Michaele And Tareq Salahi will join Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live at 10:15 pm ET/PT, where they will likely dodge the easy questions Andy will throw at them.

In other DC news, RadarOnline is reporting today that Tareq’s father Dirgham Salahi, whom he was reportedly estranged from, has passed away. The cause of death of unknown for Dirgham, who was reportedly in his mid-80s.

The Salahis made certain to issue a press release today asking for some privacy in their time of grief. “We appreciate that members of our family are the subject of some media interest for various reasons,” the family said. “But we really need to mourn in private, as grief should never be a spectacle, rather it must be a sacred meditation, and we hope you’ll understand why we will not have the media at any of the rituals celebrating this wonderful man, including any services or receptions that may occur in private.”

Finally, it seems another one of Michaele Salahi’s co-stars along with the rest of the world is having serious doubts about Michaele’s recent announcement that she has had Multiple Sclerosis for 17 years, a claim she never once revealed on the Bravo reality show.

In an interview with FOX news, Cat Ommanney echoed the sentiments of her co-star Lynda Erkiletian when she reveals her doubts about Michaele’s claims. “We were wondering whether she meant BS rather than MS. MS is a very serious disease and I wouldn’t want to mock that, it just seems ironic. Every day they seem to wake up in bed with each other and say ‘what kind of stunt shall we pull today?’ I don’t know if it is all truthful, or if it’s a cry wolf situation,” said Cat.

Cat also reveals she will not be returning for season 2 if the Salahis are still on the show. “I would think about doing a second season, but I definitely wouldn’t if they were involved, nothing in life is worth that kind of detriment to my soul,” she said.

Multiple media outlets have reported Bravo does not plan on having the Salahis back for the next season, though Bravo has yet to confirm the news.

More bad news for the gruesome twosome we have all come to loathe love aka Michaele and Tareq Salahi.

RadarOnline is reporting today that the Real Housewives of DC stars have filed bankruptcy for another one of their businesses.  If you recall, the Salahis filed bankruptcy a year ago for their Oasis Winery business, and now their American Polo Cup Inc has met the same fate.

According to Radar, court papers show that America’s Polo Cup Inc. filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection late last month. Tareq is listed as the company president.

It is reported that the company grossed approximately $1 million since 2008 but currently owes over $320,000.

In other DC news,  Lynda Erkiletian is now responding to the ridiculous lawsuit threat coming from the Salahis and their attorney. We reported days ago that a lawyer for the Salahis emailed the cast of the DC Housewives and threatened to sue any of them should they refer to the Salahis as “party crashers.”

Mark Lane, a lawyer for Lynda gives TMZ a hilarious response, basically stating the same thing we stated in our recent recap of the show, which is that the Salahis could clear up the whole issue by simply showing us their invitations.  “After eight months of exhausting the taxpayer’s money investigating this issue, she could save everyone’s time and money by just producing the invitation,” said Lane.

It gets even better as Lane adds that Lynda will continue to refer to the Salahis as White House party crashers except she will throw the word “alleged” in front of it along with air quotes.

Finally! The episode we had all been waiting for all season aired last night as we finally got to see the Salahis crash the White House dinner party, or did we?

Overall, episode 8 of the Real Housewives of DC turned out to be a tad uneventful. Yes, I am aware that the Bravo cameras were not allowed inside the White House, but for some reason I expected more last night. Perhaps, more footage showing just how these two planned to crash trash the party would have sufficed. And oh yeah, as reported earlier today, the Salahis are threatening to sue their cast-mates if they ever refer to them as White House party crashers. So thanks to the genius suggestion of our reader Lisa, the Salahis will now be referred to as the White House party thrashers!

With that out of the way, let’s get right to the recap. Stacie finally decides to contact her birth mother’s son via facebook. I was a bit torn by the Turners’ decision. On one hand, I completely understand Stacie’s strong desire to find her birth father by all means, but on the other hand, I felt it was a bit unfair to involve an innocent party. However, Stacie is desperate so I guess desperate times call for desperate measures.

The gruesome twosome is at it again!

TMZ is reporting today that the Real Housewives of DC “stars,” Tareq and Michaele Salahi, are now threatening to sue their co-stars if they dare refer to them as White House party crashers.

According to TMZ, the Salahis along with their attorney with Lisa Bloom, fired off an email to the ladies on the show, telling them there has been an exhaustive investigation of the infamous White House dinner, and that “the Salahis did not ‘crash’ the White House dinner, nor the Black Caucus dinner.” Riiiight.

Bloom adds, “It is simply a false statement of fact, and defamatory, to call the Salahis ‘party crashers,’ as it suggests they have committed crimes.”

Perhaps someone can inform that Salahis that they will stop being referred to as party crashers the second they can come up with their White House party invites. As we reported weeks ago, multiple media outlets have stated that Bravo plans on firing the Salahis, and that they will not be asked back if the show returns next season. Keeping our fingers crossed.
