Uh oh, Michaele Salahi may be barking up the wrong tree once again. “The Real Housewives of D.C.” cast member and alleged White House gatecrasher says Whoopi Goldberg assaulted her when she and her cast mates appeared on “The View” Wednesday (August 4).
The D.C. housewife claims that during their appearance, Goldberg hit her to get her attention. Show reps are denying the accusation and issued the following statement:
“At one point during Michaele Salahi’s appearance on ‘The View’ on Wednesday, Whoopi lightly touched Ms. Salahi to get her attention and said to her ‘Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please?’, meaning could Ms. Salahi return to the original subject of the conversation. After the show, Ms. Salahi and her husband accused Whoopi of hitting Ms. Salahi. As the broadcast clearly shows, the accusation was completely unfounded and erroneous. After the show and after being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally from this baseless claim in a heated exchange with the Salahis.”
ABC says Goldberg will be addressing the Salahis’ accusations during Thursday’s (August 5) broadcast of “The View.”
