'DC Housewife' -- They're Still Party Crashers to Me!

10/1/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Threatening emails be damned -- one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of Washington D.C." says she has no plans to stop calling Tareq and Michaele Salahi the "White House party crashers."

As we first reported, a lawyer for the Salahis emailed the cast of "Real Housewives" ... threatening to sue if any of them use the "defamatory" phrase -- because, according to their lawyer, they technically never crashed the dinner.

Mark Lane, a lawyer for cast member Lynda Erkiletian, tells TMZ the Salahis could clear this whole thing up by just showing off the invitation. Lane says, "After eight months of exhausting the taxpayer's money investigating this issue, she could save everyone's time and money by just producing the invitation."

Lane says Erkiletian plans on using the phrase just the same, but with one concession -- she'll throw the term "alleged" in front of it ... complete with air quotes.

Everyone knows air quotes are an airtight legal defense -- right up there with crossing your fingers or calling "no backsies."

It's hard to produce an invite that she never got.

So when I call the secretary in the downstairs office a whore can I get sued for that as well? Give me a f***ing break with these people. They're out of their minds. I can't believe they got a lawyer skeezy enough to handle this. Actually of course I can, what am I saying.

Thank you, Lynda, for saying what the rest of the country wants to say. You are the only REAL housewife on the series and I like that you tell it like it is. Don't listen to the negative crap out there. Continue to look within your soul and be the honest, respectable and classy lady that you are!

You people are SO DUMB! How the heck do you think they got into the WHITE HOUSE without an invite or an OK from SECURITY at LEAST? IF you don't believe me, TRY and walk into the White House YOURSELF! SEE What HAPPENS!!!! Do you think they let any old ya who in? Do you think they would have let ugly a** Lynda in? Heck NO! PLEASE!!!!!! THINK PEOPLE!!!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Hey Lynda, if your hands ever become legally tied, I'll say it for you; They are sad, pathetic party crashers who had to present themselves as one thing while actually being another. The FACT that they didn't have the spine to admit that to congress simply proves the point. They're so desperate to remain in the spotlight they'll resort to anything, much like hidey & sponger, except middle-aged.

Im sorry I dont care what those people did, they will be dealt with. What I do see is this Linda women has no self control and seems to be obsessed with them. She has to speak about them all the time..has she nothing else to talk about? Its ridiculous and obviously she is disturbed herself and quite a trouble maker. Shut your mouth lady....the show sucks and you suck as well! Your pathetic and boring and how dare you judge anyone? Is your closet clean? So what they are attention seekers....whats it to you? Oh maybe they TAKE attention from you..that could be it!? Go away!!! GROW UP!
