At NBC Universal’s party at the TCA Press tour, we ran into Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the infamous “White House Gate-crashers” and cast members on “The Real Housewives of D.C.” premiering Thursday, August 5.
It took a little while to get Michaele’s attention, since she was a getting her groove on with another reporter who was trying to snag her away from us, but we finally got her to focus.
The couple says that the media got everything wrong when it came to the details surrounding the White House state dinner. “The media that started this media storm has everything inaccurate,” Tareq tells Zap2it. “So, Bravo is going to show the facts.”
Michelle adds, “We were invited. We gave our I.D.’s. They announced our names. We were happy to be there.”
The Salahis say that their forthcoming book, “Cirque du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust,” will be available for presale on August 3 and it will not only tell the truth about the gate-crashing incident, but gives us insight into the couple’s relationship and lives.
Watch Part 1 of our interview with the Salahis below:
Make sure to look for Part 2 on Thursday: The Salahis talk about their D.C. cast mates and they give us a scoop as to where they’ll be heading this season.
