First she was a White House crasher. Then she was "kidnapped." Then she was a "runaway wife." And now she's a groupie for Journey. Michaele Salahi certainly likes attention, and she's been getting a ton of it in the recent week since walking away from her marriage to that guy she crashed the White House party with, Tareq Salahi, to go chill with the guys from Journey, more specifically Neal Schon. Confused yet?
Schon and Michaele are calling their romance something like a "fairy tale" - surely they mean only the twisted kind you see on reality TV - with Schon saying he waited something like 15 years for her because she decided to marry Tareq under the impression that he could provide her with better medical care for her multiple sclerosis. That's amore, yeah? "Now I want to get beyond all this media hype that Tareq has put out there. It’s really quite embarrassing," Schon said to The Daily Beast of the scandal.
According to Michaele, Tareq kept her on a short leash so she was communicating with Schon via text message on a phone that a friend had supplied to her. Then, at a Journey concert ten days before she literally walked away from her marriage - like, just-walked-out-of-the-door-of-her-house-and-never-went-back walked away - they sort of reconciled and, well, now all this has happened.
Countdown to how long it takes them to get a reality show of their own staaaaarts...now.
