Carson Daly: White House Crasher Kidnapped…Was It Staged?

We were just wrapping things up on the morning show yesterday when news broke that Michaele Salahi, the former White House party crasher and Real Housewives of D.C. star, had supposedly been kidnapped.

Her husband, Tareq Salahi, held a tearful press conference, but to be honest, we were a tad bit skeptical.

Sure, if the allegations turned out to be true, that would be awful, but he and his wife Michaele have been known to cause drama just to drum up some free press.

Turns out she wasn’t kidnapped at all and the best part is the hilarious explanation for why she went missing!

We’ll set the scene for you.

Michaele’s been missing for a grand total of 6 hours. When she failed to show up for an appointment, Tareq feared that one of their many stalkers may have taken her.

He turned to the local news to discuss the situation…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We almost felt bad for him…ALMOST. But here comes the awkward part.

Michaele is alive and well. In fact, she skipped out on her husband to be with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Journey [/lastfm]guitarist Neal Schon!

A rep for the band confirmed her whereabouts to TMZ: “Nobody kidnapped her and they [Michaele and Neal Schon] are in Memphis together.”
