This just in: Salahis to highlight cruise event, Alexander McQueen's death was a suicide

  • From White House crashers to professional party guests? For the third time in just over a month, Tareq and Michaele Salahi are the advertised attraction at a splashy event. First, hosting duties at a Las Vegas club; then, top billing at an Aussie polo match; and now, hipster collective Brightest Young Things is touting them as the stars of a cash-bar Potomac cruise-ship party Thursday night. Okay, awkward question, but ... no, "they're just friends with one of the organizers," a rep told us. "No appearance fee."

  • A London coroner has ruled that Alexander McQueen, grief-stricken over his mother's death, hanged himself in his apartment the night before her funeral. The Associated Press reports that the inquest hasn't yet made a formal suicide ruling, but that police don't suspect otherwise, and that the fashion designer did leave a note behind.

    Ummm... not true on your so called reliable sources. The Salahes are living in Australia this winter according to their PR Rep I spoke to a week ago.

    dcnightlifescene, you are wrong, they were coming to the party, but the Post completely missed the entire point of why they were coming, they were STOWAWAYS on a boat party. Get it? Anyway, now they're getting too much media attention over this so they cancelled on us... maybe:

    the washington post never get's it right.
    these two women reporters from this page are desperate!
    they were never going to this - dinner cruise? ugh huh.
    Australia is what I heard too.
    maybe the post made it up to sell tickets for a friend.
