Tareq and Michaele Salahi need to step it up.
If the White House party crashers are really trying to score a gig on The Real Housewives of D.C., which has been rumored, today's Today visit was hella weak.
Sure, they were probably advised by legal counsel to appear dignified and somber, because they could be in deep $h!t for the stunt they pulled. Fine.
But come on. Liven things up a bit, Salahis!
Tareq and Michaele Salahi said on Today that they hate the "party crashing" label and denied they finagled their way into a White House state dinner.
They insisted that they were invited to the bash by a Washington law firm with ties to a senior Pentagon official, and this is all a huge misunderstanding.
Just like when she masqueraded as a Redskins cheerleader. She was probably invited to that reunion by a senior official of some kind, too. Convenient!
“This has been the most devastating thing that’s ever happened to us,” Tareq Salahi said. “We’re greatly saddened by all of the recent circumstances."
"I can tell you we did not party crash the White House.”
The couple said they are reeling from the media attention, which is odd as that's what it appeared they were seeking from crashing a state dinner.“Our lives have been destroyed, everything we’ve worked for,” Michaele Salahi said, fighting back fake tears. “For me, 44 years, just destroyed.”
The couple’s appearance comes a day after the House Homeland Security Committee invited the Salahis and the Secret Service to attend a hearing.
“We are cooperating extensively with the U.S. Secret Service on their internal review and investigation,” Tareq Salahi. “The truth will come out.”
The truth about how they got in the White House, entered the East Wing and be photographed with President Obama and the prime minister of India perhaps?
The Salahis did all of that without a formal invitation or having their names on the official guest list for the Obama administration’s first state dinner.
Impressive. Maybe that's worthy of a reality show after all.
