The Salahis go to the White House on tonight's 'Real Housewives'

Tonight’s episode of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” will finally show the moment we’ve all been waiting for: The night that Tareq and Michaele Salahi showed up at the White House for President Obama's first state dinner.

If you want to go into tonight’s episode completely unspoiled, then you should stop reading now. But for those of you who want the few advance tidbits the preview clips offer, here you go: For starters, even Michaele's hair stylist knew that she was headed to the White House that November evening.

“Tonight’s a really big night,” she explained as she sat in her stylist's chair. “It’s a special dinner and it’s really important, it’s confidential - and it’s the state dinner.”

The stylist, obviously not clueless about White House security (or prodded by producers, who knows?) inquired as to when Michaele received such a prestigious invite.

“It just came, that’s the thing. The first way it came was through a phone call,” she said before adding in an interview aside, “For me the most important part of the invitation was the phone call. That was the biggest high that day when I found out that we were going to be invited.”

The stylist continued to do her thing as Michaele informed her that she used to go to the White House all the time as a makeup artist – “it’s great to go back as a guest, you see it from both sides,” she said – and towards the end of the appointment, the stylist asked if she could see the invitation. Michaele replied, “Yes I have to get it,” before proceeding to walk out to her vehicle, climb inside, play around with a few bangles, and whisper, “It’s not in there,” before the camera shows her going back inside the salon.


The preview clip picks up with a fully dressed Tareq Salahi watching his wife emerge, primped and ready to go. “I feel like it’s our wedding,” she told him.

Tareq and Michaele then climb into their vehicle and share a smooch before Michaele takes a call from Stacie, gushing to her about how excited she is. When Stacie asks the inevitable “why,” Michaele informs her that she’s headed to the state dinner.

“The state dinner?” an obviously surprised Stacie repeats. “You’re going to the White House tonight?!”

Annnd the scene ends. Will you be watching to see how it plays out?

    This show is pathetic. Can't they just bring back the reality channel and put every show on there?

    People like this are just social parasites! They take without giving anything back. Society is the stupid one in continuing to provide them with the means to take advantage of it. If the media would stop reporting on these two miscreants, they would just fade into oblivion from lack of publicity!

    I would love to see them carted off to jail where they belong for what they did. Are they stupid, or just delusional? Either way, I can't stand watching them lie and cheat on national tv. producers, please stop booking them and they will fade back away to obscurity. These 2 have countless creditors on their trail, and a lawsuit against his own mother! How do they sleep at night? RHoDC will be so much better without them.

    It's obvious they WERE invited in – perhaps by someone who knew them and had authority – but the media caught wind of these nobodys and made a stink. The government has not chared them for that very reason: they got in legally.

    For the Salihi's to originally say they did not get the voicemail, the afternoon of the event, that said they could not attend is outrageous. Can you imagine attending an event that important and not retrieving every single VM that came through up until the event?

    I bet that will never happen again at the White House!

    I think they should be appointed by Obama to be czars of something or other. At least they appear motivated and can actually accomplish something when they put their minds to it, even if it is illegal.

    If you watch the clip from when the RHODC were on the Today Show on Aug. 5, Michaele basically said she did not have an invitation because she received the invite at 5:30 pm. On the show she is claiming she had an invitation in the car but couldn't find it. Please arrest these useless people. I do however enjoy watching them like monkeys in a cage.

      clearly the lady is lying for the cameras and to save face.. clearly they were NOT invited, but that's OK, it was funny as heck to see them crash the white house's stupid dinners.. this stuff is all distraction while the banks take all your money to the cayman islands.. then the program will end and the banks will be gone by then.. salahi's are nothing but distraction, like romans had in the last days of their empire..

    Hey, they should invite that O'Keefe dude, oops, he is already in posing as a normal non racist person. And he just infiltrated the KKK, Aryan Nation, Neo-Nazi, Skinheads, there is only one problem, he come out and said that these groups are not bad for America like Acorn was. O'Keefe said that they are a kind and gentle group that invited him in like part of the family. He stated that it was like he had been there all his life. How can anyone think that Acorn did any good? They went around to neighborhoods where nobody goes into to get CITIZENS to registar and vote. What? Thats unAmerican. Who cares if he dress up and acted like he was a telephone repair person like they did in the movie Arlington Road. HE IS KEEPING US SAFE!!!! Acorn in it 70 year history, all they did was take down companies like Ameriquest, who were lending mortgage loans to people whos credit scores were low and gave them a loan where the rate is fixed for the 1st 2 years and then ADJUSTABLE. they offer fixed rates but the fixed rate mortgages were like 12% and the 2/28 programs had a start rate of 6% for these people. Why was that bad? they only put 3% prepayment penalty for the 1st 5 years, They used the highest comparable as the APPRAISED VALUE. they were the only company that I know of that STATED THE INCOME OF PEOPLE WHO WERE ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND W-2 INCOME. Man, I cant wait to go to a KKK rally, I mean, a Tea Party and shake his hand for all that he is doing for America. Hannity, why do you not have this guy on your show anymore? Dont worry, we dont think he is a domestic terrorist.

  31. I won't watch

    This is the proof that almighty entertainment rules the US. Get these CRIMINALS off the air and put them in a Homeland Security interrogation room again. They owe the American people a huge fine for thier rampant disregard of the law- and our taxpayer dollars. I sure do hope you enjoyed a dinner paid for by our dollars, because you should be eating that free meal in jail.

    I gave watched previous seasons, but absolutely refused to watch one minute of the WnDC housewives because this couple are on it. What I don't know is why Bravo would have put them on the show; they should have been arrested instead of having their 15 minutes of fame extended. The show should be boycotted.

      Did you know that for most of American history, anybody off the street could walk up, ring the doorbell, and be invited into the White House?

      That was before we had kings.
