Did Whoopi Goldberg Slap White House Party Crasher Michaele Salahi?
Major drama on “The View“! Michaele Salahi, the “The Real Housewives of DC” cast member best known for crashing a party at the White House, is alleging that Whoopi Goldberg slapped her during her appearance on the show yesterday. While the interview was getting tangential with Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd gabbing, Whoopi popped out from offstage and uttered some indistinguishable words to Michaele just around the time she was going off about her anger over being called “anorexic.” (It’s at 1:57 on the video clip above.) According to Michaele, what Whoopi said was, “Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please?” and then “hit” her as she stormed off. When Michaele confronted her about it backstage, Whoopi screamed, “I didn’t f**king hit you! Did you say I f**king hit you?”
Whoopi is claiming this is all “completely unfounded and erroneous.” She only emerged from backstage during the interview to encourage Michaele to stay on topic.
Personally, I wouldn’t blame Whoopi if she did slap her (though Whoopi is worthy of a slap or two herself). That woman is straight-up insane. I was proud when Sherri told her she should go to jail for crashing the White House State Dinner. I guess we’ll have to wait for the Salahis’ tell-all book to come out to find out what really happened that night. In the meantime, “The Real Housewives of DC” should be tons o’ fun. [DC Fab, E!
