Not everyone is sympathetic to Michaele Salahi. The reality star admitted on Fox News this week that she is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, but that hasn't stopped a Real Housewife from saying of Michaele and husband Tareq:
"They are an embarrassment to the franchise. They are a loose cannon. Now, Michaele has revealed she has multiple sclerosis; next she'll be announcing she is pregnant with triplets to get attention."
Reportedly, Bravo executives are equally annoyed by the couple. With ratings low for The Real Housewives of D.C., a source told Pop Eater:"The DC show is the only show in the entire franchise that isn't a true hit. And the Salahis are the biggest reason for that. At first, execs thought they struck gold with all the attention the couple got over the White House dinner. But now they realize not all press is good press and this couple's involvement in the show has turned more viewers off than on."
One major sticking point between Michaele, Tareq and the network: the Salahis claim they are under a gag order to NOT discuss the infamous White House party crashing incident. But Bravo says this is simply a lie, releasing a statement that reads:
"Bravo [has] consistently and repeatedly stated to the Salahis and their representatives that they were free to speak to press, law enforcement, Congress and anyone else about attending the State Dinner. Indeed, they have given multiple press interviews on that very subject."
Wait... the Salahis have been dishonest about something? Truly shocking.
