Bravo: Michaele Salahi was a part of ‘Real Housewives’ all along

Alg_white-house_salahi
Bravo has finally ‘fessed up to the fact that White House state dinner crasher Michaele Salahi is indeed part of “The Real Housewives of D.C.”

But as my colleague Ted Johnson notes, Bravo hasn’t exactly been up-and-up about the Salahis’ involvement in the show.

Michaele Salahi’s casting in the show wasn’t exactly a secret — everyone kinda knew that she would be a part of the cast. Yet here’s what Bravo said when the Salahis were first caught sneaking into the White House:

“The decision as to who will be included in the series will not be made for several months. We are continuing with the production of the show. However, specifics with respect to the Salahis are yet to be determined.”

And here’s what they’re saying now:

“The fact is that by November we had been shooting the series with Michaele and the other women for months. In fact, we were a few weeks away from wrapping photography on the series. Any idea that attending the State Dinner was an audition to cement participation in the show is preposterous.”

Wait, but was she tardy for the party?

“The Real Housewives of D.C.” debuts Aug. 5 on Bravo.
