Whoopi just told ‘The View’ her side of the story: “I really went off” after both Michaele and Tareq Salahi got in her face backstage.

In fact, Whoopi says Tareq started taking pictures of her arguing with his wife on his Blackberry, and that’s when she unleashed some “choice words … so choice, in fact, that you could’ve cut ‘em with a knife and eaten them.”
Michaele Salahi shot to fame as part of the couple who allegedly party crashed the White House’s state dinner. Now she is part of the Real Housewives of D.C. and trying to get publicity by claiming that View co-host Whoopi Goldberg hit her!!!

The incident that Michaele Salahi has blown out of proportion involves Whoopi Goldberg coming in from off stage and saying something inaudible to Salahi during her interview, which Goldberg later said was along the lines of move on, let’s talk about crashing the White House. Salahi later accused Goldberg of hitting her.

After the show finished taping, Goldberg, according to the Salahis’ attorney, Lisa Bloom, screamed at the reality star: “I didn’t f—cking hit you! Did you say I f—cking hit you?”

“She was screaming and dropping the F-bomb many, many times,” Bloom told The Daily Beast exclusively.

Bloom also said the the women of The View were mean to Salahi in general.

“I think they treated her horribly. I think they defamed her. I was really shocked by the way she was treated. It’s one thing to ask tough questions, it’s another to use defamatory language when you’ve been warned not to,” Bloom said.

Throughout the segment, the women of The View consistently asked Salahi to answer their questions instead of dodging them, particularly about an incident where her husband Tariq threw wine at another Real Housewives cast member.

Michaele dodged most of the questions, telling the women they would have to read her upcoming book. Co-host Joy Behar finally rolled her eyes and said, “I don’t want to buy your book.”

What do you guys think? Is Michaele Salahi making these outrageous claims against Whoopi Goldberg just to get more publicity? Will you be tuning into Bravo’s new Real Housewives?

and Whoopi…you had no right giving Jake a hard time over his way of making a living in what he likes doing. Whats your excuse for taking advantage of being in the public eye.
We are so tired of looking at your ugliness and now we have to hear it daily with the View. Its why I dont regularly watch it. I only tuned in for JAKE. He IS A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BBEING looking for love and given the opportunity to find it on Reality TV … who are you to judge how he chooses and who he chooses to do so!? (just because you are an old wworn out piece of crap that no one wants) keep your disgusting attitude and hateful bitterness to yourself!
LOVE YOU JAKE!

I dont care for this DC woman HOWEVER,Shari wouldnt let her answer the questions as she constantly feels her words aare more important (like her sista Whoopi) but Joy, on the other hand defamed her with her “personal opinion” of not buying her book while rolling her eyes when it was mentioned. Not to mention, Whoopi brags about her kiddie books.. but thats okay to publicize her crap. Now , when OPRAH gaver her “personal opinion” about BEEF (hamburgers) SHE WAS SUED! GOOD LUCK JOY…maybe u should learn to shut up and listen more! By the way, your Joy show really SUCKS~ IT’s a JOKE… again, no one can get a word in edgewise and its stupidity talking constantly with the all the interruptions! Whoopi… u 2 SHOULD get sued coz u dont have an off button and think your opinion is the only one. Someone needs to sit YOUR badass down, slap your ugly face and see if u like it~ I’d prefer Rosie ODonnell over your buck teeth face, sloppy appearance, anyday.

i think the public has just about reached its breaking point with these nonsense reality people. when even the view hosts are ridiculing and being mean to their guests (i didn’t watch, but am guessing from the quotes above), it says something. whoopi was over jake. whoopi was over this db and her husband. her husband doesn’t even defend his wife or stand by her side, just sits back and takes pictures of the so-called argument? i could stomach rhonyc a little bit b/c it did show me some of the glamorous nyc things that i like- but rhonj and that last fight with danielle and theresa and ashley was the last straw with me for all of these rho shows. they’re all off my tv and i won’t watch them anymore. if i were on the view panel i would organize a coup and tell my bosses that i was going to walk off set the next time they made me interview these pieces of garbage. none of us should waste our time on these pieces of trash. this woman is actually worse than danielle, believe it or not. i feel like the more appropriate venue for these pigs is that show that ricki lake hosted about the troubled girls- it was on right before or after the toothless guy with the clock hung around his neck (have to say, kinda liked him). in any case, these shows belong with that garbage. so fed up… and so glad i’m not watching any of them anymore. i watched one and 1/2 seasons worth, and that was TOO MUCH of my life i’ll never get back.

whoopi stay away from those people. they are messy messy messy. that is how they have those t.v. programs they live off being messy she forgot you weren’t on the show but used your touching her to her advantage. any time someone would disrespect the president of the usa by pulling the stunt she and her husband did i would have very little to say to her. she is ignorant and would not have said elisabeth hit her. i think she says what she said because she is intimidated by whoopi. whoopi don’t talk about it any more and don’t give her what she craves a cat fight. pig.

I agree with all of you. I don’t think Salahi deserves to be on the Real Housewives of DC, either. But I think she’s using the show and the show’s using her for popularity, which is basically all anyone needs nowadays to become successful. What do you guys think about how the women on the View treated her?

the countess would not have approved of anything less than hospitable behavior toward a guest. however, i personally could not have stomached being nice to such garbage and not calling her out on b.s. (similar to what whoopi did with jake.) perhaps a more effective approach for the panel to use to get their bosses to stop booking these things is to sit mute and/or to ask the most boring questions so that these individuals do not boost ratings or get to promote their own stuff— and then maybe their bosses would stop booking the trash. i’d have a hard time asking this db a question or interacting with her in any cordial way. i guess another approach is to mock them the way letterman does with people like paris hilton…

I agree Salahi is a fame whore and now she’s trying to feed off of Whoopi’s fame by making false accusations. I definitely will not be watching the Housewives of DC, that broad shouldn’t even be on there. They are just feeding her ego.

Are you – is she kidding? These people are well-dressed trash who will do Anything to get publicity. No, I won’t be watching Real Housewives in any town or state. All phonies who embarrass the rest of us who behave with dignity.
