THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF D.C.'S MICHAELE SALAHI

THE LIFE OF THE WHITE HOUSE PARTY

• The reality star, who allegedly crashed Obama's first state dinner, opens up about the politics of partying

FIRST OFF, DID YOU AND HUSBAND TAREQ CRASH THE WHITE HOUSE?

No. Through our attorney, we were invited to both the state dinner and the congressional black caucus. Have we ever crashed a party? No. Have we needed to? No. I am the party!

ON THE VIEW, SHERRI SAID YOU SHOULD BE IN JAIL; A FIGHT WITH WHOOPI FOLLOWED. WHAT HAPPENED?

They were so uncivil and unprofessional. But if I can get through that, I can get through anything. I rise above it.

AND ONE COSTAR SAID YOU ARE ANOREXIC.

Life's hard enough without your weight being an issue. If you are healthy, it doesn't matter! And I'm healthy. Some of the wives are just frustrated because they spend a lot of time with plastic surgeons, and they can't believe this is natural.
