Read this: Salahis speak on 'Today,' Terra Cotta Warriors, R. Kelly's new album
Good afternoon, everyone! Why, yes, there's still plenty of Tareq and Michaele Salahi news to be churned out. Did you catch their appearance on this morning's "Today Show?" Lisa de Moraes recaps the pair's first official media outing (video above) since showing up uninvited, the White House says, at last week's state dinner for the prime minister of India.
Highlights: They are "devastated" to be called crashers, and insist they were invited (although Matt Lauer doesn't ask for the definition of "invited," and they don't elaborate). Also, Michaele says, "Our lives have been destroyed. Everything we worked for, Matt. For me, 44 years, just destroyed."
Hmm. But aren't these two gunning for reality TV show fame? Lord knows that destroys lives! Paul Farhi also knows, and wrote a whole story about it -- and about how reality TV attracts ... a certain kind of person.
Elsewhere in today's Style section: Blake Gopnik likes the "Terra Cotta Warriors" exhibit -- but wonders why "visitors were spending more time on the texts that line the galleries' walls than on the statues displayed across their floors." "August: Osage County" is great, says Peter Marks. And R. Kelly's new album features lyrics like these: "There's only two things in this world that I'm the best at, it's true/Number one is music."
