Couple that crashed state dinner aren’t new to fame game

The World

The couple that crashed President Obama’s first White House dinner, Tarek and Michaele Salahi, managed to slip through several layers of security in order to pose with such Washington luminaries as Vice President Joe Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel. The couple aren’t new to (fleeting) fame. They’re reportedly in the running to be one of the couples on the Bravo reality show, “The Real Housewives of Washington.” And the New York Times reports that the Bravo cable TV network followed the couple up to the entrance state dinner. For more on this, we’re joined by Brian Stelter, who writes the Media Decoder blog for our partners, The New York Times.
