The latest money making scheme in the works from Bravo’s Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi and her hubby Tareq is selling autographed photos of the couple on eBay. They sure come across a super rich and spent a lot of time on the Bravo show trying to show just how wealthy they were by living at The Four Seasons and bragging about their winery, but times are tough for the ex-housewife. Not only do they have debt incurred from a recent lawsuit, the “White House Gate Crashers” are still in a heap of trouble for their White House State Dinner stunt they pulled.
They also owe $20,000 to Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, a company that provided public relations services for their polo matches. Funny enough, the couple is still engaging the PR firm for their services to sell the photos on eBay – which, in case your shopping for presents early this year – are going for $100 a pop.
Or, maybe not. Based on the eBay listing, it seems that the PR firm is making them do it.
Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, the Washington, DC Public Relations firm to whom the Salahi’s owe fees in excess of $20,000 for public relations services on behalf of the 2008 Americas Polo Cup were awarded a court judgment in the amount of $15,000 on June 3, 2010. As the Salahis have no assets through which to repay the debt, the couple signed 200 copies of the photograph taken as they arrived at the White House on November 24, 2009 to be auctioned off through eBay.
Would you buy a signed photo of The Salahi’s? And if, so, what for?
By the way – rumor has it that the Real Housewives of DC cast united Monday to tape their Bravo reunion episode at the Historical Society of Washington DC. I wonder if it will be as saucy as the Jersey one?
