TMZ has obtained photos of state dinner crasher Michaele Salahi “posing as a Redskins cheerleader during a halftime event in 2005. “


Salahi asserts she was a Redskins cheerleader in the ‘90s, “but team officials have no record proving her claim. However, these photos make it clear she was successful at passing herself off as one — because the event she crashed was to honor Redskins cheerleader alumni.”


The cheerleaders' director of marketing, Melanie Coburn, wrote in an e-mail to the Washington Post: "We have no record of her being a member of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders."

“Nor could the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Alumni Association find any record of her, said Terri Crane-Lamb, president of the association. One former cheerleader, Konnie McKee, said Michaele came to alumni events, but no one remembered her being on the squad. McKee and Crane-Lamb noticed Michaele attending WRCAA events. ‘I remember Terri and I talking: 'What's the deal? Does anyone remember her?'"



Bravo ditches Salahis



Michaele and Tareq Salahi's fifteen minutes of fame may be up now that I've learned publicly-annoyed Bravo has decided not to invite the White House party crashers back to tape another season of 'The Real Housewives Of DC.'

"The DC show is the only show in the entire franchise that isn't a true hit," an insider tells me. "And the Salahi's are the biggest reason for that. At first, execs thought they struck gold with all the attention the couple got over the White House dinner. But now they realize not all press is good press and this couple's involvement in the show has turned more viewers off than on."

Sources tell me the couple's behavior on camera hasn't upset Bravo executives as much as their behavior off camera. First the Salahi's refused to show up for the launch party, then they had the nerve to throw their own competing party and ask guests to pay to attend.

But the final straw came to light just this week, when the couple claimed (in a new book about them) that their "iron-clad" contract with Bravo doesn't allow them to talk about the White House-crashing incident to the media. Of course, they've never been shy about talking-up the scandal (except for when Tareq clammed up at a Congressional hearing!) and famously spoke to Matt Lauer about it just days after the State Dinner.

This angered Bravo so greatly that they released this statement to PopEater: "Bravo [has] consistently and repeatedly stated to the Salahis and their representatives that they were free to speak to press, law enforcement, Congress and anyone else about attending the State Dinner. Indeed, they have given multiple press interviews on that very subject."

Boom! It was a stinging rebuke of their own employees and a sure sign the network is wiping their hands of them. Other members of the Bravo family agree.

"At this point, they are an embarrassment to the 'Housewife' franchise," one fellow Bravo housewife tells me. "They are a loose cannon. Now, Michaele has revealed she has multiple sclerosis; next she'll be announcing she is pregnant with triplets to get attention."

I say goodbye and consider this my pledge to (hopefully!!!) never write about them again"


oooh rah!
