‘Hmm … My name hasn’t been in the news lately. What can I do to stir up some drama? Oh yeah, report my wife as missing! Genius!’ Is this what Tareq Salahi was thinking when he reported Michaele as kidnapped? She actually ran off with Neal Schon, Journey’s guitarist!
This is just plain amusing! Former The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. star Michaele Salahi and her husband Tareq Salahi may have just pulled another stunt that has landed their names in the news again! No, it does not involve crashing another White House party or getting into a fight with Whoopi Goldberg on national television. THIS TIME, Tareq reported Michaele as a missing person to the local authorities and asked for their help in finding her. Well, they sure did find her — she ran off with Journey’s lead guitarist Neal Schon and is perfectly fine. She just didn’t want to be around Tareq anymore!
“Nobody kidnapped her and they are in Memphis together,” Journey’s rep tells TMZ. Michaele is dating Neal and just went to Memphis to watch him perform in a concert.
But there’s a twist. Apparently, this relationship has been simmering for quite some time. According to TMZ, Michaele and Neal first met in 1998, but first hooked up in 2009. In emails to her friends, Michaele reportedly described “wild sex.” However, it wasn’t until last week she decided enough was enough and left her husband.
Michaele herself has told the Warren County Sheriff’s Department over the phone not to worry. She “assured the deputy that she had left the residence with a good friend and was where she wanted to be,” according to a statement People magazine obtained. “Mrs. Salahi advised that she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was.”
Deputy Mike Glavis said that Michaele sounded “calm [and] engaged in the conversation.” She explained that she didn’t want t be home at the moment.
After receiving notification that his wife was fine, Tareq still went out and made a fuss. “We are asking the public to please be on the lookout for her, and if found please approach her and contact the authorities to intervene,” he said in his own statement. “She may be forced to say she is OK, when in fact she is not and being held under possible abduction.”
Please! Tareq, I think Michaele’s made it pretty clear that she can’t stand you right now. The only “possible abduction” going on is the fact that you are probably making Michaele stay married to you. Talk about holding someone again her will!
But either way, only something like this would circulate around the Salahi’s! They definitely have never been ones to shy away from a little press.
BFFs — do you think this whole thing was just a big publicity stunt?
