Just days after Michaele Salahi‘s now infamous run-in with Whoopi Goldberg on The View, the White House crasher appeared on the premiere of Real Housewives of D.C.Thursday night — but failed to appear at the official Bravo viewing party.
Instead, RadarOnline.com has learned Michaele and her husband Tareq chose to celebrate the new reality-TV show by hosting their own party at EFN Lounge, an event that sold tickets online ranging from $25 to $500.
Invitations for the party were distributed by a company called DC’s Most Fabulous with the word ‘premiere’ misspelled on the flyer, and promises of cast from Orange County, Atlanta, New York and New Jersey to show up at the party.
“A staple on Washington, DC’s charity circuit for years, the Salahis graciously lend their name and celebrity to this event benefitting these phenomenal organizations,” Howard Cromwell, Jr. stated on the event’s press release. Proceeds from the event were said to be donated to the Dab the AIDS Bear Project and Honor & Remember, Inc.
Michaele’s four co-stars of Real Housewives of D.C. — Mary Schmidt Amons, Stacie Scott Turner, Catherine Ommanney and Lynda Erkiletian — all attended Bravo and Half Yard Productions official kickoff party at the Madison Hotel with an after-party at Buddha Bar.
Calls to Cromwell and Half Yard Productions were unreturned.
Meanwhile, the show was met with some brutal reviews.
