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.

Tonight is finale night for theReal 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 Michaeleand 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 DCturned 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.

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.

This season of the Real Housewives of DC has had a theme, which is the phoniness of the gruesome twosome aka the Salahis. Whether it be the couple’s phony grapes, phony party invites, phony house hunting, and now phony cheerleading. If there’s one thing we have all come to know and “love” about the Salahis, it is that their phoniness knows no bounds.
This episode of the DC Housewives begins with the now separated Ommanneys browsing through photos for Cat’s book cover. The scene starts out as a cute scene between the couple, until Cat decides to ask Charles about his upcoming schedule, which gave us a glimpse into the couple’s marriage. Based on Charles’ schedule, it’s all but obvious these two are lucky to even spend a day a week together. Cat’s definitely not exaggerating when she states she sometimes feels like a single mom.
The hilarity begins in the next scene with the Salahis. We see Michaele shaking her phony pom poms in preparation for the Washington Redskins cheerleading alumni dance routine. Michaele arrives at the practice in a white SUV, and not the awful 80s white stretch limo, thank goodness. Immediately, we see Michaele looking rather lost and completely offbeat while attempting to do the routines. Judging by Michaele’s lack of rhythm, and her overly eager attitude, it’s all but obvious we’re watching a 44-year-old con artist live out her fantasy of being a professional cheerleader.

The 6th episode of the Real Housewives of DC titled “Securing Homeland” (love all the DC puns by the way) aired last night and the above photo of Mary pretty much sums up my reaction throughout this episode.
The episode starts out with Mary and Cat bonding over the topic of their children. Cat, who is now separated from her husband Charles, expresses that she sometimes feels like a single mother because Charles is away often. Mary explains her struggle with trying to keep her daughter Lolly away from her closet, as she brings up the lock she put on it. In her interview, Mary makes it clear that Lolly is completely innocent of being involved in the theft Tareq accused her of. Mary then proudly proclaims the only thing she has to worry about is Lolly breaking into her closet. Must say if keeping Lolly out of her closest is Mary’s biggest issue with her daughter, then Mary should be a happy mother.
In the next scene, the hilarity in the episode begins as we see Michaele calling up Stacie to discuss hiring her as a real estate agent because she and Tareq are ready to fake pretend to want to buy a home, you know, just as long as the cameras are rolling. Stacie mentions in her interview that things with the Salahis are a bit awkward thanks to the Winery dinner from hell, but Stacie is all about her business, and is willing to overlook the overall shadiness of the gruesome twosome.

Michaele Salahi and husband Tareq Salahi appeared on Fox & Friends this morning, during which Michaele revealed for the first time publicly that she has been battling multiple sclerosis for 17 years.
The Real Housewives of DCstars appeared on the show to promote their new book Cirque du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust, written by Diane Dimond. The book, which is being released today, promises to reveal the whole truth about the lives of the Salahis, as well as tell their side of the story when it comes to the now infamous White House party crashing incident.
As for why Michaele, 44, has kept her disease quiet for 17 years, she tells PEOPLE: “No one wants to be seen as sickly… And I didn’t want to be pitied.” Michaele also cites the disease, and not anorexia, for her thin frame.
When it comes to what keeps her going, Michaele tells PEOPLE it’s keeping a positive attitude. “The only way I can deal with it is to smile and act like I can get through it.”
Reading some comments on other sites, it seems some readers who are familiar with the disease are a bit skeptical of Michaele’s claims. One can only hope no one, not even the Salahis, would make up a lie of this magnitude.
