Michaele Salahi

Deals Blow to MS Charity

First the dog, now people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis .... more collateral damage caused by Michaele Salahi's decision to bang a Journey band member.

Tareq Salahi tells us he's forced to cancel an MS charity event Saturday because he's left without a performer now that Michaele has abandoned him.

Tareq and his Groupie Slut were throwing the shindig at their Virginia Winery.  The highlight of the evening -- dare we say, "the draw" -- was Michaele singing her mind-numbing not-a-hit club song "Bump It."

So now the event is on hold, until Tareq can reschedule with a new act.

The good news ... people who are already suffering won't be subjected to Michaele's song, thus proving charity really does begin at home -- or at the winery.

Holy cow. Enough with the stories about these two. Does anyone really care about this stuff? Who the heck are they!??

Exactly how many tickets were sold?? ANd in the past, didn't the Salahi duo (allegedly) have a problem getting monies raised from their bank accounts to the intended charities. I seem to recall a VETS benefit in Las Vegas........

This is one way to explain why there is not going to be a grands reopening party that was supposed to be filmed for an international TV show. It was even reported by the WSJ. Never mind the fact that Montel Williams had sent the Salahis and DC's Most Fabulous a cease and desist letter banning them from using his name to promote this event. How convenient Michaele chose this particular time to run away; the Oasis auction was last weekend and now they don't have to explain anything about the party or MS donations.

If Tareq is the controlling bas**rd that Diane Diamond says he seems to be - maybe this chick had every reason to run away from him. Go find someone she could actually have fun with. Diane spent time with the Salahis at their home recently and said he wouldn't leave her alone even for a minute. What's up with that? Anybody who tries to sneak into a whitehouse dinner is dying to be around the rich and famous. I doubt either one of them is worth all this attention.

Did you really just refer to her as a slut?

The most troubling thing with this story is actually the use of the words "Virginia Winery".

Talk about an oxymoron!

@ tenley
Could not agree more. Haven't even done a google search to find out who these ridiculous people are. Memo to TMZ - sometimes less is more. Your site is getting harder to check.

I'm sure he could put out the word and someone local or associated with the charity would step up and offer some entertainment.. he'd certainly look like less of a douche and she would just look all the worse.

The answer is so simple. Just get two stray, muddy, scrawny dogs to hump on the front lawn and tell everybody it's Michaele and Neal Schon making a personal appearance. No one will be the wiser.


For an added, realistic effect, Tareq could go after them with the garden hose. Problem solved.

suspicious now that she ever suffered from MS just because of the kind of person she is because you know that she could easily have been saying that for years for attention!

From Wikipedia:


In September 2010, it was claimed in an interview with Fox News Channel that Michaele was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seventeen years ago. According to interview transcripts, this statement was made by Diane Diamond, the tabloid journalist who authored the couple's 2010 book, rather than Michaele herself...


On the reunion episode of the Real Housewives, Salahi's castmates expressed doubt about her claims of suffering from MS,


as well as her claims of having been a Redskins cheerleader and having been invited to the White House for President Obama's first State Dinner.

Who is this and why should i care about them? Why are they famous or relevant? They sound like nobodies yet TMZ loves writing stories on them.
