White House gate crashers land TV role
NEW YORK (AP) - June 15, 2010 -- The woman who crashed President Barack Obama's first state dinner has cashed in with a reality TV deal.
The Bravo network said Tuesday that Michaele Salahi will be featured in the next installment of its "Real Housewives" franchise, this time focused on Washington.
Salahi and her husband, Tareq, talked their way into the dinner last November, forcing the White House to tighten security restrictions.
"The Real Housewives of D.C." will debut Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. Eastern.
Other "Real Housewives" joining Salahi include the granddaughter of TV personality Arthur Godfrey, the founder of a modeling agency, a British import who's an interior designer and a real estate agent who started a charity for teenaged girls in foster care.
