Cheerleaders get fired up about Salahi
Washington Post ^ | 12/3/2009 | Paul Farhi

Posted on 12/03/2009 4:49:52 AM PST by Saije

Before she made it into a White House state dinner without an official invitation, Michaele Salahi made it onto the Redskins alumni cheerleading squad -- without ever having been a Redskins cheerleader.

Salahi performed at FedEx Field during halftime of the Redskins-St. Louis Rams game Sept. 20 with a group of 150 former Redskins cheerleaders. Salahi's rehearsals with the group were filmed by a crew that has been following Michaele Salahi and her husband, Tareq, for possible inclusion on a cable TV reality show, "The Real Housewives of D.C."

Several former cheerleaders said in interviews that Michaele Salahi's presence at a rehearsal drew attention because of the TV cameras, but also suspicion because no one seemed to remember her as a cheerleader for the team.

Their doubts were heightened when Salahi couldn't perform some of the basic cheerleader routines, including the standard choreography for the team's fight song, "Hail to the Redskins."

But it wasn't until stories about the Salahis' White House incident last week that the cheerleaders decided to follow up on her credentials as a Redskins cheerleader.

"She was never at an audition, never at a game and never performed" as an original cheerleader, said Sheryl Olecheck, a Redskins cheerleader from 1986 to 1996 who choreographed the team for seven years. "When I saw her, I had to ask around: 'Who is that?' "

Another former cheerleader said she asked Salahi who her choreographer was when she performed. "She couldn't answer," she said.

The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Alumni Association lists Salahi on its membership roster and indicates that she was a cheerleader during 1991 season under her nickname and maiden name, Missy Holt. However, when asked by the group for proof of her participation, Salahi was unable to supply any.

Well, attractive women have ALWAYS found that doors open easily for them, that are closed to others.

They truly are, and that they are supporters of Obama is NO surprise.

That may be true but there is a word for an “attractive woman” who is a fraud. A very unflattering word no woman likes to be called.

These people (and many more just like them) have absolutely no marketable skills, are trying to be famous for being famous, and would not only be absolutely useless in a real crunch, and would probably not survive the first food riot to hit DC.

I don’t know - I kind of admire their ability to sell themselves. My thinking is that it doesn’t hurt to ask, and the “gatekeeper” has the responsibility to say NO.
(I still don’t believe for a second that the SS was at fault in this state dinner thing.)

The media and everyone else fusing that Obama could have been in danger is really missing the main point. This was a State Dinner honoring the Prime Minister of the 2nd largest country on Earth. Obama’s Staff along with the Secret Service failed to keep the Guest of Honor safe. Our “International Image” has been trashed by the Obama Administration.

I wish they’d just cut to the chase and get the Playboy photo shoot out of the way.

I was wondering how she got on the squad.

Personally she leaves me flat.

Tariq’s an irresponsible spendthrift; Michaele’s a pathological liar - the perfect couple for an Obama White House party!

White House party?!

I’m surprised they’re not being interviewed for WH staff positions.

And good luck to your Falcons. Hoping Turner and Ryan will be able to play, taking on a team at significantly lower strength due to injuries is disappointing.

I know this woman is vile beyond belief, but gosh darn it, she's got a pretty wrapper.

Ryan is definitely out. Actually, his back up Redman is very capable, and I dare say better equipped to deal with Turner being out. Ryan will be the better qb in the long run, but right now Redman is better at reading defenses and quickly making decisions with the ball against the blitz. The one injury I am concerned about is RG Harvey Dahl. He is big and just plain mean.

I know this woman is vile beyond belief, but gosh darn it, she's got a pretty wrapper.

I was gonna eat a Martin's steak and egg biscuit, but I've lost my appetite. Lol.

In almost every picture I have seen of this woman, she has her head slightly tilted. What a POS poser!

Redman is very capable

A lot of folks don't remember this, but coming into the 2000 Draft, Redman and Chad Pennington were pretty much neck and neck. However, at the Combine, Redman ran a 40 that would raise flags if he was an Offensive Lineman. I think it was something in the neighborhood of 5.34.

Based, pretty much solely on that he slid to the third round (after Giovani Carmazzi, believe that?).

I very much agree, Redman is a smart, capable QB who can make all the throws. I'm not saying he was ever going to be a franchise type guy, but why he was playing Arena ball when Craig Krenzel and Jim Sorgi were in the NFL is a mystery to me.

Maybe she attended the David Caruso School of Posing?
