Is it just me or does Michaele Salahi’s revelation that she’s been hiding her multiple sclerosis diagnosis for years remind you of President Jed Bartlet’s similar revelation on “The West Wing?” Only President Bartlet was a great role model for kids, and Michaele is a former model who should be kept away from kids. Micahaele and Tareq Salahi were on Fox News Channel yesterday to discuss (oh so briefly!) the revelation, in the new book “Cirque du Salahi,” that she suffers from MS. She claims that’s why she’s so thin, not an eating disorder, as her fellow “Real Housewives of DC” castmates have alleged.
But watching the video, Michaele said absolutely nothing that convinced me the MS is causing her extreme thinness. I have a friend with MS; he’s never mentioned this as a symptom, and neither does the MS web site. While that hardly makes me an expert, the Salahis’ segment did nothing but convince me never to let them babysit my children – you can’t believe anything they say, plus Michaele has the worst grammar ever.
“I don’t deal with anorexic,” she told the Fox hosts, before confessing that many of her own family members, as well as her best friend, did not know she suffers from the disease.
Odd timing, isn’t it, to bring it up in a new book just as rumors are flying that Bravo is getting sick of these “RHODC” trouble makers?
You can judge for yourself whether the Salahis are credible via this link. My final observation: She didn’t talk about anything of substance, which is never surprising with these two.
