"Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world, she took a town car to crash the White House correspondents dinner…Just a city boy, born and raised in Oklahoma (I googled it!), he stole a faux cheerleader from a swindling wine maker." I know the guys from Journey are devastated that they didn't enlist me to help them write their songs.
Sometimes I miss seeing Michaele Salahi and her gnome ex-husband Tareq in the tabloids. They provided so much entertainment during their stint on Real Housewives of D.C. There was that minor national security issue, coupled with Michaele claiming (among other things) that she was a former NFL cheerleader and suffered from M.S. The quintessential cherry on top, however, was when Michaele ran off with Journey member Neal Schon right under her husband's nose, leading him to think she'd been kidnapped. You just cannot make up this stuff!
Oh, Tareq Salahi – we're not rid of you yet! And surprisingly we haven't seen you on Lockdown yet. The former Real Housewives of DC star is staging a comeback. Unfortunately. He's going to be on Judge Judy! No just kidding… it's way worse…
Starting September 16th, Documentary Producer John Campbell is set to chronicle Tareq's attempt to infiltrate politics – the legal way. Apparently the documentary has no political affiliation or motivation and is classified as a "human interest story." Which is funny because I have ZERO interest in the human that is known as Tareq.
We here at Reality Tea are often just shocked to the gills by the antics of reality stars. From the products they shamelessly hawk to the ridiculous relationships to the epic fights to the hilarious outfits – the fun never stops! With all the insanity reverberating from every corner of every network, low-budget to high, we’ve often wondered… which crazy would you rather?
If you must marry a Real Househusband what’s your poison? Is it Jailtime Joe Giudice of the felony charges, drunken buffoon persuasion or Tareq Salahi of the White House crashing, pathological lying, fake charity persuasion. Hey – they’re both bankrupt!
A) Be married to Real Housewives of DC loser Tareq - who may or may not sell your underwear on eBay and report your every menstrual cycle and calorie consumption to TMZ. Oh yeah – he’ll also buy you a pony and take it away!
B) Be married toReal Housewives of New Jersey loser Juicy – who may or may not call you a c-u-next-tuesday on national TV, while farting in your face and telling you it smells like rotten eggs. He’ll also probably get drunk and puke on your sparkly dress and cuss at your kids!
Oh, sweet mercy – that’s a tough one! (insert evil laugh here). Give your answer below and don’t forget to spread the fun!
It was a divorce made in TMZ-heaven for former Real Housewives of DC White House crashers and total wackies Michaele and Tareq Salahi, but the notorious famewhores have finally and officially ended their tumultuous marriage!
Aaaaahhh… remember the good ol’ days of their crazy antics? Michaele has finally flown the coop and is now legally permitted to marry Journey guitarist Neal Schon (Yeah, those two publicity seekers are still together!) – hopefully they won’t be purchasing anymore lingerie in front of the waiting eyes of the paparazzi they hired!
Anyway, Michaele and Tareq resolved things. ”I am thrilled with the resolution of this case and to close this chapter in my life and now move forward in a positive manner,” Tareq told E! News.
Because reality stars (past and present) thrive on attention of any kind, they’re always in the press. Good or bad! Here’s a round-up of what’s been happening as of late.
The formerReal Housewives of DC stars have had an eventful week. Perhaps they’re coordinating press releases for maximum exposure!
Up first, Mary Amons filed for divorce from husband Rich Amons. She announced her split from her husband of 26 years on Facebook! “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my twenty-six year marriage. While I have the deepest respect for my husband and wish him the very best, we have grown apart,” Mary wrote.
She then added that she wants privacy during this difficult time – which is why she publicized it on Facebook, right? What this means is that every single member of the former RHODC cast is now a single lady. Perhaps Bravo can do a former Real Housewives dating show?

Ok, Virgina residents get ready for some exciting news! Desperate famewhore Tareq Salahi has just announced his plans to run for governor of Virgina. The former Real Housewives of DC White House crasher told TMZ, “I am troubled to see how our current political figureheads continue to waste tax payer dollars!”
“I’m a big believer in limited government, keeping taxes, regulation and litigation low, and if I do win, everyone is invited to crash the inauguration!” Tareq believes his experiences grifting bankrupting a winery and being on reality TV would be a great asset to state government. How, I’m not sure…
Indeed, Tareq has officially filed his candidacy paperwork, which you can see below. You know, I’m kinda excited to see this campaign. Also – isn’t he banned from the White House? That’s gonna be a conflict of interest if he’s elected…
SO – WOULD YOU VOTE FOR TAREQ?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE PROOF THAT TAREQ IS RUNNING!
Does anyone remember Tareq Salahi? One-half of the infamous White House-crashing, Bravo grifters? And remember when his wife, former Real Housewives of DC trainwreck, Michaele Salahi, ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon? And Tareq reported her missing to TMZ? And remember when Tareq tried to auction off Micahele’s underwear? And then he said Michaele’s disappearance had killed his dog and sabotaged his career, so he wanted them to give him $17 million dollars? And then he spent every single day giving a certain media site exclusives–like the time Neal supposedly emailed him a photo of his penis just to torment him? And then she accused him of abuse? And they filed for divorce from each other? Then, remember when Tareq sued Neal for $50 Million dollars, claiming he ruined his life? And we all laughed?
Yeah… Well, apparently, a judge agrees with the rest of the world about how completely absurd, ridiculous, and stupid that so-called lawsuit is, because according to E! News Warren County, VA Circuit Court Judge Dennis Hupop ruled that the lawsuit (which Tareq appropriately filed on Valentine’s Day) is “not legally sufficient.”
Oops, well that’s unfortunate! I guess Tareq’s latest scheme just didn’t pan out… I’m sure there’s plenty more to come…
WAS TAREQ’S LAWSUIT BASELESS? WHAT DO YOU THINK HE’LL TRY NEXT?
The drama began last year after Michaele, formerReal Housewives of DC star, decided to leave the “controlling” Tareq to runoff with Journey member Neal. In the $50 million lawsuit Tareq filed this week, he is claiming Neal is responsible for ruining some of the business endeavors he had with Michaele, by stealing his wife from him!
TMZ reported some of those deals included $150k to participate on the Australian version of DWTS as well as some other TV offers. But obviously like herpes and Paris Hilton white on rice, Michaele and Tareq are a package deal, and the TV networks didn’t want one without the other!
In an interview with E! Online, Michaele first defends her new man, stating he is NOT to blame for the demise of her marriage with Tareq. “It’s between Tareq and I, and the marriage is over because of the control I went through with him,” she says, adding that she felt very trapped in the marriage. “It really just needs to be, ‘This didn’t work, wish each other the best and move on with our lives.”
Neal also responded to Tareq’s claims that he tortured him with his penis by a) sending him a photo of it, and b) calling him to tell him “I was f–king your wife.”
The Journey guitarist makes it clear that he “never tormented” Tareq and when it comes to the $50 mil lawsuit figure, Neal reveals he “doesn’t have a clue” as to how Tareq came up with that number. “I could use an extra $50 [million] if somebody wants to lend it to me,” jokes Neal.
Neal adds that at the end of the day, all he really cares about is Michaele! “You can try to do whatever you wanna do, take every cent that I have, but you can’t take the love that I have for her,” he says. How romantical.
“Neal cares about me and loves me so much that he hated to see me hurting,” Michaele states. “And I’m grateful that he protects me and pulls me out of that hurt.”
And when it comes to Michaele’s gross participation in Journey’s new music video for their song “Resonate,” Tareq tells E! he is “hurt” by it. He adds: “. I am also very troubled that the rock band Journey is now promoting my wife’s adulterous affair with Neal Schon. I am especially upset and disappointed that they would release this video on Valentine’s Day. This day is meant to celebrate lifetime love and commitments, not celebrate those who cheat and abandon their marriages.”
Doesn’t appear to be an end in sight to this ongoing soap opera!
