Former "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi has been busy throwing out some ugly allegations against her estranged husband, Tareq Salahi. However, Taraq isn't staying quiet about his soon-to-be ex, and told me that her lastest accusations are just the latest in a string of lies.
"She's a piece of work. First it was she found true love with Neil Schon [of] Journey and now that she lawyered up, they are grasping for a way out so she doesn't have to pay up her side of our financial obligations," Tareq told me. "When I spoke to Michaele yesterday, she said she didn't know her lawyer wrote those things and was sorry. ... I doubt that. She is very calculating and devious. So now, she says, after 12 years, I'm suddenly controlling or abusive ... When in fact I loved her, and did everything to support my wife and put her on a pedestal to make her a shinning star. I really think Michaele thinks she's still on 'Real Housewives' and needs to create drama."
Tareq also points out that this isn't the first time Michaele has twisted the truth for a shot at publicity or sympathy.
"Michaele is a well-known and documented liar from 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' to our personal life with her other false statements such as being a Redskins cheerleader, Victoria's Secret model, college graduate, her M.S. ... Everything was a lie in our marriage," Tareq explained. "Michaele abandoned her home, committed adultery and lied to all her friends. Michaele lied about her real home [when] filming the 'Real Housewives.' Michaele lied to her husband about attending college. Michaele lied to her own friends, family and cast about an eating disorder. Michaele lied to the public about loving our dog Rio. In short, nearly everything told me was an apparent lie."
In a case of "he said/she said," it appears as though the former couple's very public drama is far from over.
