White House Party Crashers Aspire to Crash Real Housewives Franchise


As you may have heard by now, the Obamas' first state dinner the other night was party-crashed by Michaele and Tareq Salahi, two uninvited guests who managed to sneak in, get their pictures taken with heavy-hitting politicos including Joe Biden and Rahm Emmanuel, and then immediately post the evidence to Facebook (oh, they would be those people who try to make their lives appear more fabulous through social networking). There are a lot more wrinkles to the story, but here's one of the most notable: Michaele is rumored to be a contender for Bravo's The Real Housewives of Washington DC. Will this epic breach of Secret Service security help or harm her reality TV aspirations?

I'm thinking the former. Michaele certainly has the Real Housewives look down, and apparently she's also got the shit-starting moxie so prized by the franchise. Though Bravo would certainly rather have its Housewives get in scuffles with each other rather than the U.S. government, the New Jersey iteration of the franchise proved that the channel isn't afraid to book a Housewife who's run afoul of the law (helping matters is that there may have been an invited guest who brought the two in, theorizes Gawker).

Still, it will probably all come down to an impromptu focus group being conducted right now by Bravo figurehead Andy Cohen on his St. Bart's Thanksgiving vacation. I'm guessing Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and Todd Oldham will vote against the Salahis, while Padma Lakshmi, a board shorts-clad Daniel Craig, and Henry Kissinger will vote yea. Good luck with that tiebreaking vote, Andy! Watch what happens, indeed.

    What a crazy story. Someone from the Secret Service had to get fired/reassigned for this. I wonder what they said to get in, and if they lied about who they were or their credentials. If they did criminal charges are all but assured I would think.

    I'd assume (hope) there's more than 1 check point with redundancy built in to avoid the whole "crack in the floor-boards" excuse if there's an attempt on the President's life.
    Appearance means a lot.
    Luckily (for her) she didn't decide to wear her pashmina turban.

    Yeah the thing I found suss about this whole thing is the fact that Charlie Sheen is an ACTOR. He is paid millions to make people believe he is something he isnt. He isnt paid to think.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
