Wall-to-wall coverage of Michaele Salahi in Playboy

Ever since Michaele Salahi and her equally irksome husband, Tareq, party crashed their way into the national consciousness by showing up at the White House state dinner for the prime minister of India last November, we have gotten to know a lot of things Michaele is not.

Michaele is not a former Redskins cheerleader, according to a former squad choreographer. That didn't stop her from showing up with her Bravo camera crew. But, um, no one seemed to remember her.

Michaele is not a real housewife of D.C. She and Tareq actually live in Faquier County, Virginia. That's where they do all their feuding with his parents.

Michaele is not averse to picking fights. Just ask Whoopi Goldberg, who got into it off camera with both Salahis after Michaele claimed Goldberg hit her.

And, now, I'm afraid to announce, Michaele is not shy about taking off her clothes for cash. Over the holiday weekend, TMZ revealed that a deal is being worked out to have Salahi bare all in the pages of Playboy. "And not just artsy 'top half' naked," TMZ swooned, "we're talking full-frontal, birthday suit naked." That's just great. So now we'll get confirmation that the carpet doesn't match the drapes -- assuming the former exists, which my gut tells me doesn't. That we're about to find out is as predictable as it is, well, vulgar.

Update, 10:45 a.m.: According to, Michaele Salahi has denied that she will pose for Playboy. Okay, good. But I'm going to keep tabs on this, because we've heard such denials before.

This article echoes my own thoughts and feeling towards these two social parasites.
Although, its not so much the fact that Playboy i obviously scraping the bottom of the barrel by having Michelle, aka Missy, aka Michaele, aka Con Artist on the pages of their magazine, that's not Nearly as Vulgar as the fact that these two are allowed to roam scott free, thereby continuing to run their Scams.

The real story here is that there is a writer and at least one editor at the Washington Post who actually believe that there are readers out there who care about the Salihi’s and what Mr. Capehart thinks of them.

No wonder readership is dropping.

I wouldn't put it past her Bill Cosby sweater wearing husband to start such a rumor. Missy has a court date on 9/17/10 where she is being sued by a plastic surgeon. Come on Post - get the details. To see the court information and the steady flow of scandal check out our FB page:

Aren't they just grown-up versions of Heidi and Spencer. Cons wrapped up in themselves. It's too bad folks who do some good in this world aren't given equal coverage...
