Tareq and Michaele Salahi are best known for being the party crashers at a White House dinner a few years back and their time on Bravo’s show The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. Now, the couple are back in the headlines as Tareq has told TMZ that his wife is missing!

According to the reality show star, Michaele was last seen at their Virginia home some time around 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning and her husband is certain she was abducted. The reality star told the website that his wife went out to get her hair done but never returned. 

He has, however, heard from Michaele.

TMZ reports that the Real Housewives star called her husband, telling him she was going to her mother’s house, located minutes away from the Salahi home. Tareq says the number that popped up on the caller ID was an unfamiliar Oregon number and when he called his mother-in-law to confirm, she said she hadn’t talked to her daughter.

When Tareq contacted the Warren County Sheriff’s Dept. to report the missing person, they assured him that Michaele had already called them and told them that she was safe but just dealing with “family issues.”

What do you think of this bazaar story? Real or fabricated?

This isn’t the first Real Housewives drama of the summer. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong’s husband Russell was recently found dead after committing suicide.
