While attempting to make his wife the break-out star of the upcoming The Real Housewives of D.C.," White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi did a taped interview with Dan McDermott, editor/publisher of the local Warren County Report.
In the interview, obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, Tareq made the claim that his mother "has been very jealous of Michaele," even locking her in a room at Virginia's Oasis Winery while they were trying to tape a segment for Real Housewives.
"There is something between her and Michaele that my mom wants to disrupt," Tareq said. "Whether it be locking the gate, moving stuff around or stealing her dresses. She actually locked my wife in this room, dead-bolted her in for three hours."
What Salahi failed to mention is that Oasis Winery no longer belongs to him. It had been owned by his parents, but in a battle of competing lawsuits with his elderly mother, Tareq gained control of the Virginia facility in 2007.
He then destroyed it financially buying, among other things, an Aston Martin and a boat with winery funds. They've both since been repossessed and the winery went into bankruptcy. The bankruptcy court later sold it to the highest bidder to help pay off other debts.
That didn't stop Tareq from allowing a crew from Real Housewives to shoot at the winery on November 9. Mom Corinne was also there and apparently had a meltdown! Corinne Salahi claimed her son and daughter-in-law had no right to be on the property. She even called in the local Sheriff's Department!
"You can't make this stuff up that happens here at Oasis," Salahi said. "No one would believe it."
