Call it a Salahi smackdown! Tareq Salahi, one-half of the infamous White House party-crashing couple, threw a glass of wine at a Real Housewife during a drunken encounter in Los Angeles last night.
It all went down around midnight at Trader Vic’s at the Beverly Hilton. Tareq and wife Michaele was sitting with their castmates from Bravo’s upcoming DC edition of Real Housewives when the conversation escalated. In a fit of rage, he threw a glass of wine at DC housewife Lynda Erkiletia, who then threw water back at his face.
The Salahis stormed off in a huff, and the remaining castmates consoled Lynda, whose aqua-blue dress was ruined. No cameras were rolling; the whole cast had been promoting the show at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier in the day. Fortunately, Crushable was at Trader Vic’s to witness!
“The Housewives did not start the fight,” says a source, who pointed the blame at Tareq.
Given the backstage drama, this is gonna be a stellar season.
