It’s official! Bravo’s Real Housewives of DC breakout star Michaele Salahi is the ripe old age of 44. Kidding. 44 is the new 33, but Salahi proudly stated her age live on air after rumors circulated about her lying about being a Washington Redskins cheerleader. Michaele Salahi visited The Today Show and sat down with Hoda and Kathy Lee to set the record straight. But not before Kathy Lee openly grilled her.
“Everywhere you’ve go, crisis follows you,” said Kathy Lee. “Just the whole thing with the Redskin-ettes, they were saying you’d never been a cheerleader…”
Apparently, Salahi was, indeed, a cheerleader, but just lied about when – telling people that shook those pom poms in 1991, not the 80s, to appear younger than she really is.
So, there you have it.
Hoda and Kathy Lee also spoke to the former housewife about her book, Cirque du Salahi, and a doll in the likeness of Michaele in the outfit she wore to the infamous White House State Dinner. Salahi was quick to explain that she doesn’t make a penny off her pint size doll, and that it goes right to charity.
When asked if she was sorry about doing the show, especially due to super low ratings, Michaele doesn’t regret a thing. Yet.
