TAREQ SALAHI:

I Lost Two Bitches

In a Week

For those of you who think the Salahi scandal is all fake... Well, we have living proof it's real.

TMZ has obtained pictures of Tareq Salahi burying his beloved Doberman Pinscher, Rio.  We actually have the video, but it's too rough to watch.

The funeral was held this afternoon in the backyard, where Rio loved to play.  Tareq was hysterical during the burial, especially when he laid Rio's blanket in the grave.

Tareq blames Michaele for Rio's death.  The dog -- which had a heart condition -- was so depressed he couldn't get out of bed since she split a week ago.

I was a frequent visitor at the winery and knew rio as a sweet and gentle animal. I also remember a talk with the salahis and found them to be very arrogant and boastfull about who they were and who they knew that was famous etc. The winery however, was a great place and the people that worked there always very nice... I'm sorry this whole thing has happened. The shenandoah valley has lost a great winery and my feelings go out to his mother who had to watch her son and daughter-in-law ruin the business she had worked so hard to establish and tried so hard to keep running. Maybe fame went to their heads... I don't know, but it's a real shame. Rio was a much loved pet, anyone could see that who went there regularly and I'm sorry for the family they lost their beloved pet...

I'm very sorry the dog died, but I believe this was just another photo opportunity. These people are beneath contempt and to continue to feed into his "act" is horrible. He set this up, wanted the cameras there and have no doubt he is disappointed the video was not aired.
Stop covering people like this piece of slime and Octomom.

I'd do an autopsy on that dog. I wouldn't put it past this bum to hurt her dog as revenge. Why is everyone against HER? He kept her under his thumb- monitored her every move, manipulated her perception, camera's in every room, "Make sure you're near me in case you get sick" (AKA "make sure I know your whereabouts). I'd run like hell, too! Poor poor Tarq! Boo hoo! Spent years obsessed with her, he now has no real friends (attnys don't count!) and he's broke. BE A MAN AND LET HER GO! (Oh, TMZ doesn't pay for maturity and peaceful divorces!)

This made me cry and I have completely forgiven this man of his bad judgement in marrying that nameless forgettable tramp. Everyone makes mistakes and he made a big one, but this redeems him and shows his humanity. His tears when the tramp ran off, showed he was genuinely concerned for her safety. He's so much better off without her. TIme will heal his broken heart. May he find happiness with a woman who will really love and cherish him and bless his heart for respectfully burying his beloved pet. A new pet will find it's way to him to replace the loss of this beloved one. Best wishes to you, Tareq.
