Obama gatecrash duo tout their story

Michaele and Tareq Salahi with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel

The couple who crashed the first state dinner of President Barack Obama (above) are peddling their story to US broadcast networks for hundreds of thousands of dollars, a television executive says

The unnamed executive said representatives for Michaele and Tareq Salahi contacted networks to urge them to “get their bids in” for an interview.

Representatives for the couple did not return a comment.

Michaele Salahi is a reality TV hopeful trying to get on US TV show The Real Housewives of DC.
