Michaele Salahi feuding with Whoopi Goldberg and 'The View'



If there's one reason why we hate Bravo's infatuation with its Real Housewives series, it's because of all the fake drama on those shows. Case in point: Michaele Salahi and Whoopi Goldberg are embroiled in some now after the latter showed up on Wednesday's episode of The View, and is now claiming Whoopi and the gang were abusive. Of course, that depends on your definition of abusive.

While infamous White House party crasher Michaele was arguing with Real Housewives of D.C. costar Lynda Erkiletian about a fight Lynda had with Michaele's husband Tareq, Whoopi came out from backstage, touched Salahi on her back and clearly said, "Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please." (Watch the video below, if you dare.) That was the last straw for Salahi, who is apparently a professional victim and was being berated by the entire cast.

"There's Michaele on The View, live -- and Joy (Behar) and Sherri (Shepherd) both called Michaele the White House Gatecrasher," Salahi's attorney, Lisa Bloom told RadarOnline. For the record, Sherri also said "you guys should be in jail, with which we can't argue. "She was upset but maintained her composure."

But then: "Whoopi came from behind and according to Michaele, shook her arm gently. It was not violent, but it was startling. Whoopi said, 'Move on, move on, get to the White House.' When the segment ended Michaele burst into tears backstage and several people came up to talk to her and she found an office."

Apparently the confusion was compounded by Whoppi erroneously thought the thin-skinned Salahi accused her of hitting her, and according to Bloom, launched into a tirade of f-bombs directed at the spoiled semilebrity, who was "devastated" after the cast's treatment of her.

"I think they deserve an apology," Bloom said about the Salahis, who were whining about all this on the Today show Thursday morning. "It’s outrageous and I’m surprised this would happen."

Yeah, who knew selling yourselves out to be on a Bravo show, then getting called out for all the stupid stuff you do on a national TV show would result in hurt feelings? For shame.
