Considering Michaele and Tareq Salahi first burst onto the scene two years ago when they crashed a White House party, is it any surprise to hear that her so-called abduction resulted in news that she actually ran off with the guitarist from Journey, Neal Schon? Not really, right?
Although Tareq called authorities yesterday out of complete concern that she was abducted since she never made it to her 11 a.m. hair appointment on Tuesday, Michaele is singing a different tune. As reported by TMZ, she went to Neal’s show in Nashville because after all, she’s been dating the rock star! And yes, in case you’re wondering, the Real Housewife is still married to Tareq.
Journey’s rep, Scoop Marketing, confirmed with TMZ that “nobody kidnapped her and they are in Memphis together.”
In addition, in a statement to CNN a sheriff indicated Michaele’s with “a good friend and was where she wanted to be.” In fact, when Michaele spoke to the authorities she mentioned she was dealing with “family issues.”
Although Michaele’s manager, Gina Rodriguez, said this “is not a publicity stunt,” the FBI is getting involved at this point. The Warren County Sheriff’s Office released a statement indicating they’re working with the FBI to make “additional contact with Mrs. Salahi.”
