Michaele Salahi

Michaele was shocked and hurt by the other 'wives behavior at the reunion.

on Oct 21, 20100

The facts are proven best by watching the episode of the show, which as we indicated previously, are when pictures are worth more than a thousand words. We are especially proud of when Bravo showed the video portion of the producer asking me what to look for. I'm glad they kept it real.

Let's get back to helping the stray "Cat" about her invitation to the White House. I think she was uninvited by her husband not by the White House. Keepin' it real Cat! Your Dad went in your place and that was the right thing to do, to share.

I was very happy to see Tareq defend me, rise above it all, and even apologize to Lynda. However, I was sad to see Lynda couldn't do the same to me for all the pain she has caused me. I really hope she blesses herself instead of the yard, it is much needed at this time.

I will be appearing at and supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis event in Chicago, November 13th, at the Hard Rock Hotel. For more information, please go to www.Multiple-Solutions.org. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for watching Season 1 and I hope you enjoyed learning about us. More to come!

I enjoyed her on the show, the others were complete bullies to her!!! She is the only one with a heart on the show.  The others haven't accomplished anything spectacular in life except inherit their money or married into, so who are they to be talking about Michaele!!!! They need to get a REAL life, so they won't be busy with Michaele's life!!!! Don't bring them back, out with the old and in with the new!!!

Michaela, I'm very sorry your were so bullied during the show. You seem to be a very sweet woman who means well, and I think it was disgusting the way the other women and the media attacked you. You looked so beautiful in your sari, and I'm sorry the event turned into such a fiasco. I was sad to hear you have MS. I don't think the other women realize how they made themselves look. The portrait they painted for themselves was no less then monstrous. I hope you are doing well.

Hi Michaele,

It's rumored that you and Tareq are no longer together. I know it's a touchy subject, but so your fans know what's going on can you say if there is any truth to this?

Thanks!

Really hope you return if there is a second season.

I found you and your husband enjoyable and could not understand the unfortunate reactions of others. All I can say is that they will get theirs in the end... not Karma or anything like that, it is just those types of people tend to live in glass houses.

Hope you and yours are well, and that you are planning more for Bravo.

Your welcome! forgot to add....all those women only made themselves look bad even tho their goal was to make you look bad especially Linda and Cat, they dont realise how people view them and they came off as very spiteful and bitter. I actually feel sorry for them because they will end up very lonely in the end! Thanks for your reply earlier Im sure your super busy, I think now the series has just finished over here in Canada you have just gained a huge bunch of supporters!

Dear Michaele, Wow why is it when you a pretty blonde women hate you! ive just finished watching the series and think that it was such a shame that those other women bullied you! But hey you know how it is in life others feel the need to put someone down to feel better about themselves!

Keep your chin up, your a classy gal and you handled yourself well!

Best Wishes Jen Canada

1st and foremost, I would like to express how much I adore you!! I feel compelled to tell you. You received so much hate and negativity on the re-union shows, that I want to tell you you are beautiful inside & out! I strive everyday now to be just like you! You are so positive the brightness shines & radiates through you You Shine! You beam ! Your fellow cast mates are the exact opposite - they judge, gossip and are jealous of you. I have changed myself to be more like you! I love the human being you are. God Bless You & your husband. Your friend, Valerie from California I hope this letter reaches Michaele. I really want her to know how I feel.

We all love the Salahis. What else can I say. They bring excitement and drama to the show. Isn’t that what we are all looking for? They always leave you wanting more of them. I always looked forward to the next episode to see what they are up to, and sad to say, who is going to be treating them poorly? Honestly without the Salahis I would not watch the show, along with many of my friends and colleagues. We look forward to an exciting second season with them in the show. Best of luck to the Salahis. We all love you.

WOW! The 2nd part of the reunion was intense. My favorite comment of yours Michaele was that if the White House did not want you there you would have not been invited in.Plain and simple and true.It is odd that this group can't move on from this topic, you and Tareq made history and the cast should have toasted to the Salahi's for making the show a hit! Congratulations on your last name becoming a verb , pretty funny!Tareq, you & Michaele take care of each other. Best , Johnny Bueno

Michaele, Thank you so much for your kindness. My daughter and I were so happy to meet you. She was absolutely thrilled to get to talk to you and have a photo. I’ve never seen her so happy and excited! We were so impressed with how lovely you are, so sweet and kind and beautiful. We are HUGE fans and supporters and will gladly always defend you to the “haters” and tell them how nice you were to us. We hope to see you at the winery next spring and can’t wait for the next season of Real Housewives of D.C. Warm regards, Courtney Sebastian

You are such an inspiration! Your beautiful smile! Your beautiful personality! The other women are so very jealous of you. I believe the men are jealous of Tarques birthrights. So much jealousy. The reason behind all the hate must be jealousy because you and Tarque did not do anything to cause all the attacks on the two of you. You both have stood together and a couple of times you boh have had to stand your grounds and push back and good for you, because if you had not they would have run over you then also. The other women are shallow and empty and really....not very nice at all. You are so very beautiful...inside and out. I hope there is a show somewhere here for the two of you without those other witches.

Is this real?!?!
Is this real?!?!

Are you paying people to make these comments? I can't even imagine that there would be this many people in the world who would have positive comments about you. I think perhaps the reunion show turned the tide in your favor. Everyone wants to support the underdog and your castmates were quite harsh. I can understand their feelings of frustration however do not condone their behavior. I sincerely hope you will do yourself the favor of declining to participate in season 2 if in fact there is a season 2 and you are invited to participate. I found your pretentious behavior amusing but embarrassing and felt like virtually everything spewing from your mouth was a lie. I guess I just don't understand why you would put yourself out there like that. In the world we live in facts are easy to check and when you tell half truths and blatant lies you are likely to be caught. You are quite attractive and don't need to try to be something you are not. Take it from one who knows, it isn't worth selling your soul for material items. You claim to be madly in love with your husband, which for me is very difficult to comprehend. I has a previous husband who in behavior reminds me of yours. It was a difficult transition to go from a seven figure income to a six figure one but I assure you it was well worth the sacrifice. I wish you well and hope that watching yourself this season was an eyeopener. I truly hope you will invest the work to make the changes you need to make for your own happiness as well as those who must associate with you. Perhaps I'm an eternal optimist but I have to believe you (and your husband) have redeeming qualities and I sincerely hope you will find a way to display these qualities for the world to see.

Matt Johnson thank you michaele, it means so much to me that you took the time to write me back. most celebs wouldn't have bothered. i believe you are a very sweet and genuine person, and that the show crucified you to make their rateings go up. from someone who has ms it is very difficult to put yourself out there like that especially when all the stress can reek havoc on your body. you are so brave for doing the show and i want you to know that you gave me hope because if you can do it so can i. thank you and please stay in touch, sincerely, matt j.

Michaele, you are an amazing woman and i watch the show faithfully. I must say I admire your composure and your always striving ability to handle whatever comes your way. I just wanted to say wow as you are inspiring and your energy is amazing. I am opening my own salon this month and for me to see some one like your self really handle all in stride and always come out on top is honestly admiring and i hope that one day a lot more people could have the same idea and breath of life as you.

Michaele, I need to start by saying this is something I have never done but I have been watching your show and have never been so appalled by the behaviour of grown woman in my life. I also realize this is a commen saying but I think jealously is very much the big green monster in the room. I feel terrible that a woman who seems so genuine and outgoing and kind is treated like this by this awful woman. Keep your head up and lets hope that another saying comes true....Karma is a b*&ch! Take care and all the best!

Hi! Just simply love you and your stength! I was tested for MS at the age of 35 after I woke up one morning unable to move my neck. After months of testing MRI's, leaving my job they were unable to tell me what was truly wrong. I am still searching... They did however find plack on my brain from the MRI. I felt better after seeing someone young and beautiful coming out with that to the world. I think the world of you and husband after watching your show! All the best Karen Vancouver BC Canada

I am from Canada as well. But i thought you were very fake. I really do not care about your politics and how serious you take them, but people should just try to be themselves. It is really sad and unfortunate that people have to pretend to be some thing they are not to feel better about them selves, or to elevate themselves to a higher level

Hey there. I am a Canadian watching the show. I think it is aweful how you have been portait on TV. Whether or not you had an invitation, I have to believe you were invited or at least been made to believe that you were invited. It should not have been you two put into that kangaroo court, it should have been someone from the whitehouse or at least the security. Anyways, for what it's worth. You have a huge following in Canada. We love you and we wish you both nothing but the best and all the worlds happiness. Good luck, God Bless. Shelly Wieringa

Michaele, Your behavior on the reunion show was exemplary. You and Tareq exhibited a refined breeding that the other cast members seriously lack. I commend you for holding up under the onslaught of hatred and reckless attacks from the other housewives and their husbands. They all came across "ghetto" to me and I am disgusted with how America has come to accept that behavior as ok. You are the one shining light in a cast of gutter dwellers.

Stop the bullying !
Stop the bullying !

In my opinion I think Tareq and Michale Salahi should be interveiwed seperately. We only got a little of them on Watch What Happens, your show Andy and sure would love to see more. It is important for the veiwers to make opinions on the individual and not as the Salahi's as a couple. It was a huge risk for Tareq and Michaele, as all the couples, to put their personal lives on display. You do not see the other couples share their intimate and private lives on the show in the way the Salahi's were attacked for theirs. It shows me that the Salahi's are strong in love and have strength in their marriage.

The few fake Bloggers I have seen on Blogs with negative things to say , do it for attention. They hide behind the "fake"profiles . Why don't those of you who have something hateful and heartless to say use your real Blog identities, instead of hiding. Are you people afraid of conflict or are you afraid of readers/viewers discovering who you really are? Because bullying ISNT cool!

Being a gay man myself I think it is disturbing to see anyone bullying or attacking a person like those four women did toward Michaele. It is my hope to see Season 2 and Michaele. From the very beginning of the show Michaele was more of a free spirit, no worries type. At the end you see a more mature, stronger Michaele who grew in all aspects of her life. The other wives showed us the viewers their mean high school behavior and reminded us of what we don't want to see happen to people. Bullying. It is encouraging to see that people like Michaele can press on and do it with grace and smile. Now that is what I am talking about ! Wil

Hope this time it makes it to get posted.

As someone who has watched season after season of the housewives various shows, I thought I was calling it quits after Teresa and the NJ girls, but then decided to give it one more shot with DC. However after having seen the infamous reunion show over and over, have decided I can no longer support the malicious, "adult bullying" that took place. I was so shocked at watching the behavior of these "ladies" and couldnt' believe Andy just sat there allowing it to happen without any kind of much needed intervention or casting doubt and attention to one of the others! I will no longer spend my time supporting a network that engages in this kind of atroucious behavior. You have lost a fan here for good! Michaela, though I would not call myself exactly a fan of yours, I am a very compassionate person and really felt for what you had to endure, I really commend you for staying on the entire reunion show, most including myself would have walked off and never looked back.

The Real Housewives of DC was Awesome. I Love all of them. The Salahis were the interesting ones to watch for sure. As we got to see alot about the other wives families, I would love to watch more about Michaele's family. She is good . You are crazy fun to watch. Maybe the other wives will ease up on hating on you so much. Stay strong! Congratulations on doing such an incredible job on the reunion show! Judy

Please Bravo, don't listen to Jonathan Quinn! I LOVED the Real Housewives of DC and can't wait for next season! It's a shame the Salahi's self absorbed antics were focused on at the expense of other genuine storylines. Hopefully Season 2 will have more balance.

Michaele , You are grace and beauty combined. You made the show fun to watch. My friends and I have tried to post over and over on this and it never makes it to this site. You were the ONLY reason I watched. I just wanted to leave a message of support. I watched the second episode of the DC Housewives finale and was totally disgusted with the actions of the other cast members. We try to teach our young folks that harrassing others is wrong, I guess your cast members disagree and all of them are mothers, what direction is this for their young folks! I have two very close friends with MS and for the cast to not support you was another reason. I wonder how they would feel if they had such a disabling disease and you didn't show support for them! Lastly and I'll get off my soap box, I wish you well and strength and hopefully some day Oasis wine will be in my local wine store--- Please write back. If it even makes it to get posted. I have tried before.

Fondly, MJ

You are an embarrassment to this series and to this country. You weren't bullied you were asked questions that you spin. Learn the difference. Repulsive!

Michaele, You are the reason I watch. Continue to do as you are. My daughter & I watched the re-union show the other night again, and we truly thought the way they all sat in judgement of you at the re-union was disgusting. Who are they to judge you? I have never seen anyone wish harm to another person with such ugliness. You have grace and beauty. Hold on to it. Sheryl Shaugnessy

Would love to hear from you too.

Hi, I think you could be a great person, however, you make excuses for extremely bad behavior. Everyone makes mistakes but your suppose to learn from them. If you do not take responsbiltily for them, you will not get the learning expirence which is why i think you contiune to act the way you do. You can not really beleive you are not wrong...an if you do i would recommend seeking professional help.

Michaele, Please keep your chin up, I belive you are a beautiful person inside and out. For the first time since I began watching the first Housewive's show, I turned it over on the reunion show.. The way you were bullied was not only very unclassy it was sad and very demeaning to you. I felt bad for you, and am very proud that you stood up for yourself. Just remember to be yourself and enjoy life..

Hi Michaele, I want to let you know that I am one of your fans. I just wanted to leave a message of encouragement. it seems everyone is having fun bashing you and saying negative things to and about you everywhere. Yet you still smile. Please keep your head up and keep smiling. I think these other women are just jealous of you.People wont listen to you talk, they just want to put out negativty..just to tell you, "you rock girl" ( Have you noticed all the negativity comes from women, they are just jealous..)

I agree with all you said RH and truly feel for your situation. MS runs in my family , both my mother and brother have it. My mothers illness is not as agressive as my brothers as he was diagnosed at a younger age. Both are waging war against the disease and are considered to be doing very well. You can still SEE it. There are small tell tale signs that anyone diagnosed for a certain length of time will display. None are seen on Michaele. So...like you, I would like to know the treatment she is receiving and how she is able to display no outward signs of the disease. Maybe she can help others in sharing how she is coping so well with a truly viscious ailment that ravages the body.
