Update: The Salahi White House state dinner crasher saga

One in a series of photos the Salahis posted on Facebook around the time of the inauguration. Their caption: "Tareq, Michaele & OPRAH backstage at the Kennedy Center after the Oprah TV Special Show. The Hottest ticket in town for the Inauguration, without a doubt."

For the latest Washington Post updates on the Salahi White House dinner-crasher saga, please read here.

CNN says the couple will appear on "Larry King Live" Monday night.

See video of the Salahis walking the red carpet here.

All new info, including the latest word from Secret Service, how the Salahis spent their day getting ready -- in front of Bravo's reality-TV cameras -- and their past brushes with celebrity are in this story.

Another in the series of photos the Salahis posted on Facebook around the time of the inauguration. Their caption: "Tareq & Michaele were honored to be invited to President Obamas private viewing box at the Lincoln Memorial. Naturally this picture was taken after his departure. Sitting in the correct order of exactly were President Obama & First Lady were seated. The glass is not only bullet proof, but also electrified. Never try to touch this special protective glass. "

I'm guessing this little escapade has shot Thanksgiving all to hell for many, many people. Not least Roxanne & Amy!

It seems this couple was successful in getting what they wanted: free publicity, courtesy of the White House.

Thanks for asking, dadada! It's been a most unusual Thanksgiving, indeed.

Can I use the phrase 'fame whore'? Free publicity, manufactured celebrity with the assistance of the US Secret Service. I seriously hope that there are criminal charges coming for these two. It will be interesting to see what happens when Federal subpoenas start showing up at Bravo, the production company, the limo driver, etc.

I plan to boycott any products that are listed as sponsors of CNN Larry King (who is supposed to "celebrate" this couple) They have a responsibility to show respect to our White House and to our President and his family. If Bravo hires this "Washinton" couple, NBC will also have women who will boyecott their sponsors.

I'm suddenly nostalgic for the Balloon Boy family, who seem classy in comparison to these two.

This is what I just sent to the NPR Ombudsman. How can you rip other people for arrogant critique when you skewer Martha Stewart for doing the same, in this very same e-column? There is no Class system in America, despite who the White-house fetes. You and everyone in this country has invented themselves and are social climbers. Get over yourself.

"Roberts doesn't add anywhere near the punch of her fellow comedians on Wait Wait, Don't tell Me, but the show goes on... However, on WHYY, she has set Class in stone, and America is about possibility, not law-based class. Her comment that "they are Not Horse People" was such arrogant spew that I could not help bringing this to the attention of your office. Please protect us all, all us little people from the grand Dames such as Roberts who think we have no right to crawl out of our dark holes and reach her height in the bright sun shine."

What a stupid setup stunt.

There are no people in the President's box nor any people in the stands behind them and the few that are there are obviously leaving. They took the picture after everyone was gone and before they took the viewing stands down.
