Great News: Party Crashers Get TV Gig

Who said obnoxious behavior doesn't pay?
The White House gatecrashers are being rewarded for their cheesy chutzpah with a gig on reality TV.

Michaele Salahi, 44, will be one of the "Real Housewives of D.C.," the Daily Beast reported Friday.

That means we'll also be seeing a lot of Salahi's pudgy husband, Tareq, 41, in the upcoming Bravo series.

The Virginia-based social climbers got the instant fame they'd been craving when they bluffed their way into President Obama's first State Dinner last November.

The Bravo cameras were already trailing the Salahis and recorded some of the stunt, which ultimately cost White House social secretary Desiree Rogers her job.

The fakers were even photographed doing the grip and grin with an unsuspecting Obama.

The Secret Service didn't realize they'd been snookered until after Michaele Salahi posted photos of the herself at the fete on her Facebook page.

"These people should not have gotten through the gate," an irked Obama later said in a "60 Minutes" interview.
At least they got a photo with Obama. More than can be said for Bibi Netanyahu.
