Crashing White House state dinners and on the Bravo reality show The Real Housewives of D.C.
Who Is Michaele Salahi
Michaele Salahi, (born Michelle “Missy” Ann Holt) along with her husband Tareq, stepped out of obscurity and into the spotlight when they crashed the White House state dinner in 2009. Their serious security breach cemented their notoriety and a spot on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of D.C.
American television personality Michaele Salahi, has a net worth close to $10 million dollars in 2020.
Model And Cheerleader?
Much about Salahi’s younger years is unknown. She attended King’s College for a time, but left without earning a degree. She has claimed to be everything from a model to a Washington Redskins cheerleader, though her alleged employers have refuted the majority of her claims.
She met her husband on the D.C. party circuit. They married in a lavish 2003 wedding that, according to Salahi, included over 1,800 guests, 28 bridesmaids, 28 groomsmen, a meal prepared by 46 chefs and an eight-foot wedding cake.
The Salahi’s co-founded America’s Polo Cup together, turning it into one of the largest polo events in the United States. They were also the purported owners of Oasis Winery near Hume, Virginia. However, wherever the Salahi’s go, controversy is sure to follow. Their legal battles include family fights over control of the winery, lawsuits for unpaid bills owed for America’s Polo Cup and allegations of fraud.
The Salahi’s made headlines all over the world in late 2009 when they attended a White House state dinner honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Salahi claimed to have emails proving that they were invited to the event, though no such invitation existed. The couple later testified in front of a congressional committee, but no criminal charges were ever filed.
Things Get Real
Bravo confirmed the couple’s participation in The Real Housewives of D.C. in the spring of 2010. The season debuted in August 2010 to more controversy, largely due to their appearance on ABC’s The View where she accused co-host Whoopi Goldberg of hitting her. Goldberg later confronted her backstage about the allegations with a profanity-filled rant.
The Salahis’ participation in future seasons of The Real Housewives of D.C. remains uncertain, as tensions with Bravo have bubbled to the surface. The main source of the conflict is their refusal to speak about their White House gate crashing, citing a non-disclosure agreement from Bravo. Bravo released a statement denying their claims, further dividing the couple from the network.
No matter the outcome, it’s clear that the fame clock is almost up on Michaele Salahi, although she’s doing everything in her power to fight for the limelight. She announced in September 2010 that she has been battling multiple sclerosis for 18 years. The revelation coincided with the release of her tell-all book Cirque Du Salahi.
