Montel Williams

The Salahis USED Me

8/25/2011 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_montel_salahi_exMontel Williams is threatening legal action against no one's favorite couple -- Michaele and Tareq Salahi -- accusing them of using his name to promote an upcoming event.

The Salahis are planning a charitable event next month to celebrate the reopening of their Oasis Winery in Virginia -- and, apparently, they've listed Montel as one of their celebrity guests.

That's news to Montel -- because his rep tells TMZ, "Montel doesn't support the Salahis, doesn't know them and did not give them permission to use his name." He says the event organizers also, falsely, announced that Montel's MS Foundation is involved

The rep says a cease and desist letter was fired off to the Salahis today -- demanding they stop using Montel's name and foundation -- and we're told both have since been removed from the website promoting the event.

The Salahis are pleading ignorance ... telling TMZ they had no knowledge Montel's name was on the site.

Montel will attach his name to anything if the price is right. All they have to do is throw some money at him and he'll be all over this event.

We used to be good at making people disappear. We need to restart that process with these two idiots.

I guess they didn't get the memo that his Parents winery is on the auction block 9/18. Whoever is renting them a 20k a month house in LA should be committed.

If these losers have so much money she should get those teeth fixed. They are both nothings and nobody will be there anyway.

Perhaps a slight lyrical change to a Bill Withers' classic could be arranged: "The Sahalis just keep on using me, until they've used me up."

These 2 are complete morons. They never know anything, according to them. Just like Sgt. Shultz. When are these 2 going to go away?

Didn't these grifters just pull a charity scam a couple of weeks ago? It was reported that they hosted their own Bravo premier party with the proceeds going to a soldier's charity - 'Honor & Remember.' The guests were charged between $25 -$500 and the charity was promised 40%. The charity got nothing. They were told there were no profits from the event, the Salihi's had no involvement and weren't paid for their 'appearance.'

Typical Salahi tactic....over the top hype with throwing out names of celebrities no one ever heard of. Just like saying presidents attended their goat roadeo. For the truth check or Facebook page:

This is the Salahi's MO. They do this all the time, lie and pretend celebs are supporting their corrupt events. They take money from people for wine tours and stand them up, 2 recent suits in the past few months. At least 10to20 similar suits over the years they are GRIFTERS!

i'm shocked montel didn't whore himself out for this. usually when there's a buck to be made, wether it is to hock a money lending company, blender, or super relaxing dog bed, montel is always down.

No shock there! They are a bunch of users and will do ANYTHING to be in the spotlight.
