Reality show couple Michaele Salahi and Tareq Salahi set out on a real adventure Tuesday night when they crashed the White House State Dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The couple are well known among the Virginia horse country set and got an audition for The Real Housewives of DC after telling producers they were on the White House guest list for the biggest event of the year. The reality show is set to air in 2010. It was since come to light that Michaele fraudulently claimed to be a former Washington Redskins cheerleader. He is president of America’s Polo Cup and owner of Oasis Winery.

Michaele Salahi proudly displayed photos from the swanky affair on her Facebook Just Fans page. The pictures feature the couple posing with the likes of Vice President Joe Biden, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty, CBS anchor Katie Couric, Rep. Ed Royce, Marine’s in their dress blues, Arun K. Singh, Indian Ambassador to U.S. and Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo Chairman and CEO.

According to Secret Service Agency spokesman Ed Donovan, the Office of Professional Responsibility is looking into how the couple got past a checkpoint that would have verified they were on the list of 300 invited guests.

Donovan was quick to point out that the couple had to pass through the same weapon’s checkpoint as the invited guests. He said the breach, though embarrassing, never put President Barack Obama at risk. See photo of the couple with the leader of the free world in our gallery below.
