The Salahis

G'DAY to 'Dancing with the Stars'

8/3/2011 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alleged White House crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi are HUGE down under -- in fact, we're told, the "Real Housewives of DC" stars are closing in on a deal to appear on Australia's "Dancing with the Stars."

The offer's already on the table for next season -- and sources tell TMZ, Tareq and Michaele are just hammering out the nitty gritty before signing on the dotted line.

And to prove just how famous they are over there -- we're told the couple also shot a commercial for an Australian laundry detergent last week ... LAUNDRY DETERGENT.

As proud Aussie, I can say that the Salahis are not big here at all. In fact the only way I have heard of them is from TMZ.

I'm Aussie. Never heard of them! Only seen them on this website and have no clue who they are. Could be saying something about DWTS though, they could be a tad desperate for contestants!

Total and complete nonsense. I have only heard of them on TMZ and I can say with EXTREME confidence they would get a complete WTF if they were on TV. I am telling you, they are nothing here. They didn't even make the news at the time.

You cannot be serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What on earth are you talking about, Who in the name of sanity approved this travesty.Please tell me that oz tv programmers are not this desperate.Then again most of oz media is controlled by the Murdochs. Nuff said, no one in the great country or Australia would even know who these sleaze bags are. I only know because I occasionaly check out TMZ for a bit of guilty voyuristic pleasure.
