Everyone watched last night’s shocking season finale of The Real Housewives of DC, right? Well, did you stick around for that other Bravo show — Watch What Happens Live? Andy Cohen had the gate crashers themselves, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, on the show to discuss the aftermath. Tareq also revealed some very sad news about his father. Keep reading to find out what happened.

On the same day as the big The Real Housewives of DC finale, Tareq and Michaele Salahi appeared on Bravo‘s Watch What Happens Live. On the show, Tareq revealed that his father, Dirgham Salahi, had died that day.

And he still did the show?

Michaele did what she does best and went on Facebook to tell the world this sad news. She posted a picture of her late father-in-law dancing with her at her wedding with the caption:

“Forever in my heart! I am heart broken at the passing of Dirgham Salahi, someone that I loved and learned from.”

The family issued a news release Thursday asking with the media for privacy.

“We appreciate that members of our family are the subject of some media interest for various reasons,” the family said. “But we really need to mourn in private, as grief should never be a spectacle, rather it must be a sacred meditation, and we hope you’ll understand why we will not have the media at any of the rituals celebrating this wonderful man, including any services or receptions that may occur in private.

Hopefully they will oblige.
