Charity? What Charity?
When White House-crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi ditched the other "Real Housewives of DC" for their own premiere party, Michaele said, "This is for the troops. My dad was a part of the US Army. We wouldn't be here without the troops." According to Page Six, “Guests were told proceeds from the Salahis' party would go to the charity Honor & Remember, but a charity organizer tells us they're not getting squat. Tickets for the bash held at a DC bar ranged from $25 for general admission to $500 for access to the VIP room. The organization said it was promised 40 percent of the profit but was told recently the packed, cash-bar event didn't make any money. A rep for the Salahis claims they were merely guests of honor.”
