Tareq's Pique at the Post

Real Househusband Tareq Salahi blames the Washington Post for the fact that the world sees him and his wife as “delusional grifters.” He told the Daily Beast‘s Nicole LaPorte that the Post revealed the Salahi’s family lawsuits, bankruptcy filings, and unpaid debts out of revenge. For what? For unpaid advertising bills from his bankrupt polo event and winery.

Only it never was his winery. See:

“Salahi 101: A Guide To The Lawsuits & Lies,” Jezebel.com

The couple had their lawyer send a stern email to fellow reality show cast members cautioning them to cease calling the Salahis “White House crashers.” Other “Real Housewives” told the press about the email, claim the duo, because they crave media attention. 

When you Google “delusional grifters,” expect the search results to read “Tareq and Michaele Salahi.”
