everal weeks before crashing a White House state dinner, Michaele and Tareq Salahi sneaked into the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Awards Dinner. Jason Backe, who was also involved, had the details on 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' (Thu., 9PM ET on BRAVO).
The Salahis invited him, but Backe noticed their ticket said "Admits One." No matter. The group somehow got through security. From there, the Salahis advised a strategy for scoping out the empty seats. "All of a sudden, five or six secret-service guys come over and tap them on the shoulder," said Backe. They were escorted out.
But when Backe told the story again later, he admitted "nobody had tickets" and that they "saw a busboy coming out from a side door, and we snuck in the side door."
His friends were appalled at hearing the news: "It's just rude. It's just disrespectful, especially to the African American community."
