Poor Michaele — Stacie may have her back, but the other D.C. Housewives have major bones to pick with her! “They have a history,” including an incident where Michaele’s husband threw wine on one of the other women!
Lines have clearly been drawn between The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. — and almost everyone is against Michaele Salahi! “I think she’s easily influenced by her husband,” fellow housewife Stacie Scott Turner told HollywoodLife.com exclusively Aug. 5 at the after party for the premiere of The Real Housewives of D.C. at Buddha Bar in Washington, D.C. “[The other wives] don’t like her very much because they have a history with her.”
“The rest of them has had a history with her — I just didn’t know her at all before the show,” Stacie told us. “I just think that they have some longevity. There have been situations where they have intersected in business and charities. We just don’t do people who don’t seem legit. From my experience, all I can do is judge by what we have been around.”
“During the show, you will see that [my husband] Jason and I have a number of episodes with Michaele and Tareq [Salahi],” Stacie continued. “Because I have a different relationship with her than the rest of the cast, they have been nothing but nice and friendly with us. I just judge her by that.”
“I wouldn’t say that we’re good friends, but I have no animosity towards her,” Stacie said. “I met her brand new so we had no background, only the way they treated us. … I think Michaele is just a sweet harmless person. I really feel that about her. She’s sweet and she’s harmless, just she’s easily influenced by her husband. I liked her before, but I really didn’t appreciate him throwing wine on my cast mate. You just don’t do that to a woman. That’s just not approriate and not cool!”
But now that Michaele is on the outs, it looks like the other cast members are getting along fine.
“The four of us genuinly like each other,” Stacie explained. “We have such a blast. There’s such a positive vibe among the women. We stopped filming in February, and we’ve continued to hang out since then!”
Poor Michaele! At least she has good-hearted Stacie on her side to balance the negativity directed towards her when and if Bravo decides to film a second season of The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.!
