Salahi was diagnosed with the disease seven years ago, and appeared on FOX News this morning to discuss her struggle.
“This is the first time I’ve said it publicly … It’s something I kept personal, “Salahi said. “I think a lot of people do with chronic illnesses or any type of disease, whether it’s heart [disease] or whatever you deal with, you know, breast cancer, so for me, I kept it personal because I never wanted to be judged, never wanted to have pity, and I certainly wanted to hold on to my job.”
The new book, titled ‘Cirque du Salahi,’ was written by Diane Dimond.
This can’t be sending a positive message to all the young and impressionable kids out there. White House party crasher Michaele Salahi has been cast on the upcoming Bravo series “Real Housewives of D.C.,” according to The Daily Beast.
After one of the most outrageous auditions in history that almost cost presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers her job, Michaele and her husband Tareq have landed the gig. According to the report, all 12 episodes of the upcoming season have been shot, which are expected to start airing in July.
The couple are contractually obligated not to speak about their participation in the program. However expect an orchestrated press tour prior to the launch of the show, with an already set date with Matt Lauer on the Today Show on May 27.
The Secret Service is possibly beginning a criminal investigation against the couple from Virginia who crashed a dinner at the White House, reports CBC. Michaele and Tareq Salahi made their way past security Tuesday to attend a dinner honouring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The pair were being filmed as potential candidates for Bravo reality show Real Housewives of D.C.
“As this moves closer to a criminal investigation, there’s less that we can say,” said Jim Mackin, a Secret Service spokesman. “I don’t want to jeopardize what could be a criminal investigation. We’re not leaving any option off the table at this point.”
