Oh snap! Michaele Salahi — one-half of The White House Party Crashers who flim-flamed their way into The Obamas’ State Dinner last November — is back in the news again. The star of Bravo’s new reality docu-soap, The Real Housewives of DC, has accused Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg of striking her during a promotional appearance on The View Wednesday.
According to a statement from a rep for the Emmy-winning talk show, Michaele and her husband, Tareq, engaged in a dispute with Whoopi following the show’s taping. Different versions of today’s altercation are being released by The View and an attorney for The Salahis â€”but one thing they both agree on is that it ended with Whoopi and Michaele in the middle of a vicious spat.

If you thought flashing moneybags and behaving like spoiled middle school students to the glee of thousands of adoring fans was the key to eternal wealth, have we got news for you.
Despite making millions for the network, the women of Bravo’s ratings juggernaut docu-soap The Real Housewives (now in five cities, including Washington, DC) are fed up with the paltry pittances they’ve been receiving from the network in exchange for their work in the reality franchise.
And they’re reportedly ready to fight back. Could a legal battle be looming?
A network spy tells PopEater’s Naughty or Nice Column: “They are pissed that they only get paid $3,000 to tape each episode and are furious that they get paid nothing to tape the reunion episode. It’s two full days of their lives with no lunch breaks and no pay. Everyone on the set is getting a paycheck except the stars. How can that be right?”
White House gatecrasher Michele Salahi, along with co-stars Catherine Ommanney, Mary Schmidt, Stacie Scott-Turner, and Lynda Erkiletian, will star in the latest incarnation of Bravo’s wildly-popular Real Housewives franchise.
The Real Housewives of DC premieres Thursday, Aug. 5 @ 10PM on Bravo.
