Their show may be over, but the drama continues. Former Real Housewives of D.C. stars Michaele and Tareq Salahi — better known as the infamous White House party crashers — have had quite an eventful fall, and now the plot thickens for the soon-to-be-divorced couple. In documents obtained by TMZ, Michaele is asking for the couple’s legal separation to be expedited on grounds that Tareq is employing “psychotic scare tactics” and she’s fearful for her life. The documents also allege Tareq was physically abusive toward Michaele this past summer and state that the abuse drove her away from him and right into the arms of Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

In September, Tareq reported Michaele had been kidnapped but later found out she had run away with Schon of her own accord. Embarrassing much? Since then, Michaele and Tareq have fired back and forth in the media, with Tareq most recently threatening to sue his estranged wife for $17 million for public humiliation. Tareq has responded to Michaele’s latest abuse allegations saying they are completely untrue.

Michaele’s lover Neal Schon also has his own legal trouble brewing right now over a recently leaked nude photo… of himself. Seems like these two dramatic lovebirds are perfect for each other!
