It seems for the first time ever…too much press became bad press and now the Salahi’s from “The Real Housewives Of DC” are banned form doing another season…They really do seem like attention whores lol! I have yet to watch one episode ofÂ theÂ show! Usually Bravo sits back and collects great ratings for such a public drama…but even they are upset with the Salahi’s! Danielle was fired too, but after two seasons and too much public drama!
According to PopEater,
Michaele and Tareq Salahi’s fifteen minutes of fame may be up now that I’ve learned publicly-annoyed Bravo has decided not to invite the White House party crashers back to tape another season of ‘The Real Housewives Of DC.’
“The DC show is the only show in the entire franchise that isn’t a true hit,” an insider tells me. “And the Salahi’s are the biggest reason for that. At first, execs thought they struck gold with all the attention the couple got over the White House dinner. But now they realize not all press is good press and this couple’s involvement in the show has turned more viewers off than on.”
Sources tell me the couple’s behavior on camera hasn’t upset Bravo executives as much as their behavior off camera. First the Salahi’s refused to show up for the launch party, then they had the nerve to throw their own competing party and ask guests to pay to attend.
But the final straw came to light just this week, when the couple claimed (in a new book about them) that their “iron-clad” contract with Bravo doesn’t allow them to talk about the White House-crashing incident to the media. Of course, they’ve never been shy about talking-up the scandal (except for when Tareq clammed up at a Congressional hearing!) and famously spoke to Matt Lauer about it just days after the State Dinner.
This angered Bravo so greatly that they released this statement to PopEater: “Bravo [has] consistently and repeatedly stated to the Salahis and their representatives that they were free to speak to press, law enforcement, Congress and anyone else about attending the State Dinner. Indeed, they have given multiple press interviews on that very subject.”
Boom! It was a stinging rebuke of their own employees and a sure sign the network is wiping their hands of them. Other members of the Bravo family agree.
“At this point, they are an embarrassment to the ‘Housewife’ franchise,” one fellow Bravo housewife tells me. “They are a loose cannon. Now, Michaele has revealed she has multiple sclerosis; next she’ll be announcing she is pregnant with triplets to get attention.”
