Media Whores of the Week: The Salahis

Tareq Salahi, originally uploaded by victorfosterono.

Those wretched Salahis are back trying to squeeze a little more time out of their fifteen minutes of fame. If you don't remember them these were the two idiots who crashed a White House state dinner and for some reason are not in JAIL. Just like the proverbial bad penny these two media whores are back to suck a little more life out of their fleeting fifteen. Television has seriously sucked this last week, but nothing could make me watch these two grifters on "The Real Housewives of Washington D.C.". Now Michaele Salahi is boo-hoo-hooing about how Whoopi Goldberg treated her on "The View".

Whoopi wasn't as nice to Michaele as Michaele THOUGHT she should be to her. For somebody who crashes state functions and then whores herself out for a T.V. gig, Michaele is very sensitive. I watched the replay of Whoopi's on camera interaction and all Whoopi did was touch her and request that she change the subject. I guess the encounter continued back stage where Whoopi used some colorful language on the highly insulted Michaele Salahi. Good for Whoopi. If ever a pair needed to be told to "Fuck you!" it is these two self-inflated scumbags. I don't know why these two have been REWARDED for their egregious behavior at the White House last year, but if it were up to me they would be in the slammer.

The past few weeks on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and "The Jersey Shore" there have been several scuffles that have involved police intervention. This makes for good television, but at what point are T.V. executives responsible for encouraging illegal behavior? In real life, hitting another person is a violation of the law. On reality T.V., if the police are called out, the ratings are higher. Who is paying for all of this? Don't the people producing these shows have some responsibility for their stars' behavior when they know they are setting-up, if not actually encouraging, illegal behavior? Don't they have some moral, ethical and financial responsibility for the illegal activities that occur on their shows? Is this how we want our system of jurisprudence utilized? Of course a lot of this stuff is as phony as a three-dollar bill and entirely scripted, but some of this stuff seems to be the real deal.

Then there is FAKE celebrity Michaele Salahi boo-hoo-hooing that REAL celebrity Whoopi Goldberg has somehow abused her. Gag me! Salahi is always such a victim. When she and her husband crashed a state dinner they were NOT invited to, they expressed such a lack of respect for the office of the President of the United States and the President's safety, we should all be insulted. I am not encouraging anything, but I kinda' wish Whoopi had slugged her.


  1. I'm waiting for the backlash against all of this television trash. I am convinced that within 5 years, we will return to a society that condemns rather than rewards poor (and ILLEGAL) behavior and return to the civility of our parents and grandparents.

  2. I can't stand those two losers either. I have a feeling that the only reason they aren't in jail is because the White House is embarrassed by the fact that they did manage to gate crash.

  3. It's disgusting and this show got really high ratings.
