Salahis confirmed on 'Real Housewives of D.C.'

Posted: 03:59 PM ET

Bravo has released the list of "Real Housewives" for the Washington, D.C. installment of the franchise, and surprise, surprise: Michaele Salahi is indeed one of them.

Michaele crashed a White House state dinner with her husband Tareq last November, and the couple's media rep confirmed in March that they had landed roles on the Bravo reality show.

Bravo declined to comment at the time, but on Tuesday, the network sent out a statement revealing the new cast, and it turns out that Salahi will be among the five "real housewives."All of the women are supposed to have connections to “D.C. power players” as well as having “their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society," according to Bravo's statement.

In the statement, Michaele is described as a “northern Virginia native and model” who founded America’s Polo Cup with her husband, who serves as the U.S. team captain. The Polo Cup is how Michaele is said to have met a variety of international political leaders.

how sad – the whole franchise shows a terrible cross section of women (not "real housewives"), but now they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel. From personal experience, I know she is a horrible person and an attention monger – it's sad she is getting what she wants so badly. I understand that reality wouldn't make for good reality tv, but do they really have to give this low life her hearts desire?! Maybe she will watch herself and see what a train wreck she is, but from my experience, she's not that bright. And she lives about an hour from DC by limousine, non rush hour, so shouldn't qualify as a DC housewife too!

anything these two party crashers have to offer/do will be about as stale as month-old bread; so why are they still in the limelight?

Hi Larry,
Have you run out of people to invite ?There are many such women like Michaele in the DC area trying to get there two second fame by being invited or gate crashing to embassies parties and homes of congressmen and senators. Scores of such social leaches collect photos of themselves with Congressmen,senators,judges etc ...... sadly several of them are in shady [ not all ] business trying to buy some reputation and respectably by connecting with the DC circle. Did the Salahi's get any fine for gate crashing into the White House? Air headed or not Michaele is getting her way and will soon be making a fool of the DC circle once again as she is of her husband and all those "polyester people" who watch any reality TV. Sorry Michael you got to be thick to be on reality TV.

How about you bring on your show women who have overcome adversity and become successful – instead of these 'Real Housewives' kept women characters who are nothing more than failed celebrity whores who have never had a job?

What a strange couple?

Dear lord Larry, Why is this sill posted? Yet the one on Obama's speech removed? The gatecrashed is no longer news! They should be embarrassed, it's history this woman does not get it does she?

What a great idea !
another bunch of brainless and losers showing off their boobs and couture When America faces one of the worst finacial crisis in the country history.
these shows are insulting and degrading for the women who wants to see changes and progress in their economic and social needs to encourage American daughters and mothers not to focuses on shallow images but on strong and educated women that will make a difference for a better America of tomorrow !
please produce a show where we can focus in growing and learning not distracting the viewers with this pathetic and degrading wife's from hell !
Those show is an embarrassing and insulting when Americans are loosing their home and these wives are worry about Botox and cocktail parties !
