The Salahis Washington Post “Persons Of The Year”
Written By Trading Forex News on Saturday, December 26, 2009 | 9:15 AM
Tareq and Michaele Salahi — the celebrity-chasing couple who strolled uninvited into President Barack Obama’s state dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh — have landed the coveted “Persons of the Year” title from The Washington Post’s leading gossip column.
“Heck, the only way Tareq and Michaele Salahi could have missed being our Persons of the Year was if we’d made them Persons of the Decade instead,” quip columnists Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger.
“No disrespect to some of our column’s 2009 favourites (Alex Ovechkin, Tara Wheeler, Levi Johnston),” the gals chuckled on, “But the Salahis took what could have been an enjoyably seedy little horse-country melodrama and catapulted it into the gossip stratosphere with one fateful night at the White House that exposed the dark secrets of our decade’s major growth industries: national security and reality television.”
“You hated us for making you want to read about them, and still you kept begging for more. Will they get prosecuted? Will they get a TV show? Too many questions that will have to wait till 2010…..”
Bravo recently polled fans on their thoughts about a possible reality show starring The Salahis, prompting speculation that the network is considering offering The Real Housewives hopefuls their own unscripted series.
