Obama seems to be really on top of security! Reality television couple Michaele Salahi and husband Tareq Salahi crashed the State Dinner and Obama even thanked them for coming! Read more and see video below.
The couple was able to slip right into the White House and they headed straight for the liquor in the reception room and posed for photographs with Joe Biden and many other political people.
This is the first time that an uninvited guest has breached security to crash a White House State Dinner.
Who is Michaele Salahi? Her biography is scant but we can tell you that she is a former model who loves the polo ponies. Her birthday is October 1st and her measurements are unknown. Takes a great picture though, and seems to be the life of the party along with her partner in crime Tareq Salahi.
The couple met (fittingly) at a holiday party in 2000 and were married the next year. He was embroiled for years in a family feud over a vineyard started by his father 30 years ago, a controversy which was finally settled by lawyers in 2007.
The two are aspiring to participate in a new reality show called Real Housewives of Washington DC. Much more about their life story is here.
The couple crashed the Obama State Dinner and posed for pictures with such luminaries as Vice President Joe Biden, TV anchor Kate Couric, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Washington Mayor Fenty, and Indian Ambassador Singh.
On Michaele Salahi’s Facebook page she posted all the images and bragged:
Honored to have attended the state dinner at the White House in honor of India with President Obama and our First Lady. INDIA & the USA will challenege each other for the first time on the DC National Mall in June 2010 in what will be another proud and historic moment.
So what do you guys think of the White House party crashers?
