The Salahi party: What we missed at "Hollywood vs. Bollywood"

So what'd we miss? It appears we might have been the only media types bounced out of Thursday night's "Hollywood vs. Bollywood" party, starring Tareq and Michaele Salahi. (Something we said?) Here's what we gleaned from everyone else's reports:

Politico has few details about what the party was actually like but does chat up the Salahis - who, while sticking to their can't-talk-about-the-serious-stuff stance, do drop a few amazing quotes. Tareq tells the reporters that "men and women of the armed services" are always approaching him and his wife to say, "we just want to tell you we're proud of you." No, we don't know what that means either. Society blogger Kate Michael has a good photo of Michaele's sparkling pink minidress and reports that the DJ played "Tardy for the Party" by "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak.

Hostess Kelly Ann Collins, on her own blog, reports that we missed Indian food and Indian dancers, and that the dynamic duo were interviewed pre-party by "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent Diane Dimond, whose literary agent is now repping the Salahis, and who last month wrote a "Daily Beast" story about the couple's "Real Housewives" future. Kelly also compliments our (well, MY) hair. Thank you, Kelly. No hard feelings.

But back to Politico, which managed to crack open the Salahis' essential humanity by asking them what they thought about being parodied on "Saturday Night Live" by Kristin Wiig and Bobby Moynihan.

"We both saw how we look, I guess," said Michaele. "I thought they did it well. I guess we do look like that."

"I went on a diet after I saw that," said Tareq.

"You went on a diet and I'm trying to be smarter and pose for less pictures!" said Michaele.

Couldn't help but notice Tareq told Politico "We have stayed low-key".

That's not a bad strategy when you are being hounded by creditors and process servers.

Because of the Salahi bio-solids; and the Secret slackjawed Service, State Dinners at the White House will probably become a
thing of the past. There hasn't been one since the PM of India came.

No Head of State will attend a function if their safety and security can no longer be assured and it can't because we can't even protect our own President.

Why are these two not incarcerated?

Tareq tells the reporters that "men and women of the armed services" are always approaching him and his wife to say, "we just want to tell you we're proud of you." No, we don't know what that means either.


Now THAT is an astonishing quote.

Glad to see they are back.

If Vice President Biden can show there picture at the recent media dinner, and laugh about the night. Then we all can.

Is it true that "The Washington Post" wasn't allowed in? That is classic.

They are cool. I was at the party. It was great, especially with the dancers.

Assuming you are not one of the internet alter-egos of the Salahis [ala the common poster "Susan"], then your incpacity to spell correctly is only exceeded by your obvious idiocy.

Perhaps I am showing my age, but financial deadbeats/publicity hounds/reality TV wannabes hardly qualify as "cool" in my book, and I tend to think most responsible people would agree.

"Lawpool" and "Holly" get a life.

Oh , wait a minute . this IS your only life - blogging about the Salahi's.

YOU are probably the same person - on all these blogs you are filled with hate and jealous of them.

Hope you get an anger management course.
Keep Rockin' Salahi's ! We Love You!

Just like facebook they are looking at all of this hate you keep posting. 3 people have lost their accounts already. I guess your next.

For some reason, Michaele Salahi makes me think of a scene from the movie "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" where Jack Spade (Keenan Ivory Wayans) is alone with Cherry the hooker (Anne Marie Johnson), and Cherry confesses to Jack that she's not all she appears to be, proceeding to remove her colored contact lenses, wig (exposing her bald head), fake breasts, fake rear end, and prosthetic leg, after which Cherry says to Jack, "Don't make me hop after you!"

By the way, is it just me, or were Michaele Salahi & Ann Coulter separated at birth?
