Tareq’s Pique at the Post

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,”

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.”

Salahi Sell-Out

June 10, 2010

Salahi Sell_Out

Tareq and Michaele Salahi have sold out their June 17th appearance at Carol Joynt’s Q & A Cafe, but we wonder how their polo match ticket sales are going. The most exciting part of next weekend’s match may be the unpaid bills and lawsuits. The was certainly the case with the Salahi’s 2008 and 2009 polo events. 

This year’s bus ads look nice, but they come cheap, and the convincing 2010 America’s Polo Cup website is misleading. Is the event “on the National Mall?” No. It’s scheduled for West Potomac Park. Is India participating?  No. The Indian Government pulled out after the Salahis crashed that White House dinner.
