Michaele Salahi says she doesn't like talking about that time she and her husband Tareq attended - some would say "crashed" - a party at the White House. "It's been media torture," she says. The new star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. would rather tell the world about her latest claim to fame: a manhandling, she claims, by Whoopi Goldberg.

Via her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, Salahi is claiming that Goldberg grabbed her arm, and later, verbally attacked her backstage for not talking enough about that night at the White House - and Salahi appears to be further courting the controversy. Her Facebook page was updated immediately, saying that a response on national TV would be forthcoming. Then, on Thursday, Salahi related the incident at length on NBC's Today and said Goldberg "berated" her.
