TV Junkie: Salahis Might Not Be Gate-Crashers But Whatever They Are, It Ain't Good
The attorney who now represents "Real Housewives of D.C."'s Michaele and Tareq Salahi is adamant that the pair are not "gate-crashers" saying that the term is "false and defamatory". On Wednesday Michaele Salahi got into a shouting match with Whoopi Goldberg after taping an appearance on "The View" during which Salahi said she was verbally and physically abused by co-hosts, which seems to be a fanciful/irrational interpretation of what happened if you watch the video footage.Wether or not it was "gate-crashing" we have to speak from personal experience that we've seen Tareq Salahi behave very badly after the NBC party at the Television Critics Association last Friday night involving apparent inebriation, yelling matches and throwing drinks. It's disturbing that these people were allowed to get so close to the President of the United States much less allowed on TV. If they truly cared about their image and future happiness, they should get off of TV as soon as possible as they appear not to be able to handle the scrutiny.
