Albo joins White House crashers on 'Real Housewives'

Rosalind Helderman

Spotted on "The Real Housewives of D.C.": The Virginia General Assembly's own Del. Dave Albo (R-Fairfax).

Albo appeared in a scene with infamous White House party crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi, discussing a Virginia law that defines what rules local governments can set for events held at wineries. (At least, that's what Albo tells us--we swear, we don't watch the show.)

Albo's name popped up in coverage of the Salahis' White House incident--he's known the couple for a long time and socializes with them on occasion. He said the scene was filmed about nine months ago, before their party crash.

"They called and said they wanted to film something with us discussing the legislation," Albo said. "All this stuff, really, its a 'reality' in quotes."

Still, he said the meeting resembled any other he might have held with the Salahis, who at the time were working with the Virginia Wineries Association. There was concern that some local governments seemed unaware of the newish legislation and Albo agreed to send a letter on the topic to the Virginia Association of Counties and the Virginia Municipal League.

"If you believe the tabloids and everything you see on TV and this Housewives thing, you're not going to like them," Albo said of the Salahis. "But if you know them, they're really nice people. They're eccentric, but they make life more fun."

So did Albo agree to wear makeup for his appearance?

"No!" he said, laughing. "And I can't believe how good I looked, too!"

They still haven't gone away. Now a doll that Michaele stated on the today show that she would be getting "not a dollar" but according to the owner of the company making the doll the Salahis approached him and they are getting a take. So the pathological lying continues. She is still perpetuating the Redskins cheerleader lie even though the Redskins deny any association.

I am left just shaking my head at reading Del. Albo's comments, which indicate he is either:

1. An idiot;
2. As gullible as they come; or
3. Perhaps both.

"Really nice people" who are "eccentric"?!

Well, I suppose there might be someone out there in the universe that would say the same thing about Bernie Madoff.

"[T]hey make life more fun."?!!

I, for one, am just not entirely sure all of the multiple creditors of the Salahis and their failed business ventures would agree that couple has made those creditors' lives "more fun".
