    Salahi Disappearance: Michaele Ran Off With Journey Guitarist! TMZ has learned ... far from being kidnapped ... Michaele Salahi has run off with Neal Schon, the lead guitarist for the band Journey. TMZ broke the story ... Tareq called authorities several times last night and today, claiming his wife has been abducted, because she left without taking her belongings. But now we've learned ... Michaele (pictured above with Schon and her husband in 2010) has been dating the rock icon, went to his show in Nashville last night and is currently with Schon in Memphis, where Journey is set to...

    (CNN) -- "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi has been missing since Tuesday morning and may have been kidnapped, her husband's manager told CNN on Wednesday. "It is our belief as of last night, Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and is being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities, she is OK," manager Gina Rodriguez said.

    Ostensibly, White House party crashers Tareq Salahi and his wife could facilely be dismissed as another pair of publicity infatuated cretins. Commentators have been quick to compare them to the deranged Balloon Boy parents, desperate for fame at any price. Obamanutz devotes an entire chapter to the putrification of our pop culture that has spawned and enabled this kind of narcissism. Two strangers getting access to the President of the United States is disturbing enough by itself. We were told early on that Salahi is “half Palestinian.” That’s not the half of it. The Salahi’s are deeply in debt as...
  • [DESIREE ROGERS] Former White House social secretary says crasher scandal 'in the past' (puke)

    (CNN) -- Former White House social secretary Desiree Rogers told CNN's Don Lemon on Saturday that she is excited about her new position as chief executive officer of a publishing company and that she has put the state dinner crasher scandal behind her. Rogers declined to comment about the Salahis, the couple whose party-crashing ways may have cost her the White House position. Nor did she want to discuss a reality show that features the Salahis and that recently showed footage of the couple with a police escort. Those images have sparked an investigation by police in Washington D.C., an...

    Desiree Rogers, former White House social secretary and Illinois Lottery director, has been named chief executive officer of Johnson Publishing Company, the Chicago-based publisher of Ebony and JET magazines, the company announced today. Rogers, who left the White House early this year after two uninvited guests crashed a state dinner in November, had been working as a consultant to the company since June 5. Linda Johnson Rice, daughter of the company’s founder who held the CEO title, will remain as chairman. The two women are known to be good friends. “Desiree has a proven track record of successful business leadership,”...

    This sounds like it must be a joke, but apparently, it's not. Infamous White House crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi were stopped in a limo by Secret Service officers near the White House Wednesday night, the Associated Press is reporting. The incident occurred at the same time that President Barack Obama was hosting his second state dinner, this time in honor of Mexico's president. Reliable Source puts the now certifiably insane Salahis at Kellari Taverna at 17th and K streets NW for dinner last night. As they were apparently leaving the restaurant, their limousine allegedly drove through a red light...

    " For Ms. Rogers, associates said the episode proved a searing experience that has soured her on Washington. She believes she was left largely undefended by the White House, by her colleagues, including Mr. Axelrod, Robert Gibbs and even her close friend, Valerie Jarrett."

    This ought to make Republicans, particularly New York Congressman Pete King, happy. Mr. King, who's the ranking Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, has been trying for months to call Ms. Rogers before the committee, but the White House hasn't made her available, and naturally, Democrats have been reluctant to issue her a subpoena. Mr. King even sent her a letter with 15 questions. "I take this very seriously," he told Good Morning America. Why all the seriousness about a White House party? "[The Gatecrashers] could have been terrorists, they could have been psychopaths, they could have attacked the president,...

    WASHINGTON – White House gate crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination Wednesday, refusing to answer a House committee's questions about their uninvited appearance at a state dinner. The jet-setting Virginia couple repeatedly said they were remaining silent on advice of counsel, but that didn't prevent members of the Homeland Security Committee from peppering them with questions about how they got through Secret Service checkpoints on Nov. 24. Tareq Salahi read an opening statement in which he offered to have the couple's lawyers provide information about their appearance at the dinner for the prime minister...

See the white guy in the white suit? Now see the blond in the white dress? See the guy in the middle…hmmm-m-m. This picture was taken June 9, 2005. It seems Obama has known these two phonies for awhile, at least from the time he was a Senator. They’re getting all the press now as being “party crashers” and the secret service is taking the fall. Funny how this hasn't come out...

    Michaele and Tareq Salahi were not the only uninvited guests at the White House state dinner in honor of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. At the last minute, someone from the Indian diplomatic delegation invited a man to attend the White House event on Nov. 24 without the knowledge or consent of the White House. As with the Salahis, the Secret Service ignored the fact that the man was not on the guest list and failed to conduct a background check on him. This new example of Secret Service laxness came to light when the agency was investigating why Secret...

    The Salahis weren't the only gate-crashers living it up at the White House state dinner last November. The Secret Service revealed Monday that a third individual who was not on the guest list made it into the dinner, though the agency says the individual went through security screening and did not appear to have any interaction with President Obama. The Secret Service, which did not name the individual, said the information about the third party-crasher came out in the course of the investigation into the breach at the Nov. 24 dinner honoring India's prime minister.

    Wil Haygood Washington Post Posted January 3, 2010 at midnight WASHINGTON - Virginia socialites Tareq and Michaele Salahi's crashing of President Obama's first state dinner in the White House on Nov. 24 prompted a ripple of concern among black Americans nationwide that lingers still. "You are talking probably 100 percent concern about the president's safety from my listeners," said Joe Madison, known as "the Black Eagle," who hosts a popular nationwide radio program that attracts mostly black listeners. "People are worried. My callers think there's not the intensity to protect this president given his unique history. It shouldn't be business...

    While the big gun media and American Secret Service are out there investigating “party crashers” Tareq and Michaele Salahi, no one’s telling the truth: Obama knew the Salahis when he was still an Illinois senator. Polo Contacts Worldwide could make it easy for the investigating Secret Service by brown-enveloping them this picture .... Interesting little detail for White House gumshoes: As the above photo was published in June 2005, Barack Obama was still Senator Obama and not the President Elect. And with Michaele Salahi yesterday having been caught out—Facebook pompoms notwithstanding—as a bogus cheerleader for the Washington Red Skins and...

    The evidence clearly shows that the congressional investigation of the White House Gatecrashers is being controlled and limited. Homeland Security Committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS), now the subject of an Ethics Committee investigation, has made it clear that he wants to limit the investigation. Is he trying to protect White House officials with something to hide? Ignoring evidence of White House connections to the alleged gatecrashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, Thompson will not subpoena Desirée Rogers, the White House social secretary who is a very close friend of Barack and Michelle Obama. As a result of the stonewalling and cover-up,...
