Former Real Housewife of D.C. Michaele Salahi just can’t stay out of trouble. Last week, estranged husband Tareq threatened to sue her and new boyfriend, Journey’s Neal Schon, for $50 million, and now a member of her entourage is in hot water over carrying a concealed weapon in an airport.
Over the weekend, Michaele’s bodyguard was arrested at LaGuardia Airport for possession of a gun. Salahi’s rep tells TMZ Michaele, her beau, and the bodyguard were detained by TSA and Port Authority Police after the gun was discovered in a bag marked as Michaele’s.
Luckily for Michaele, the bodyguard told police the bag was actually his and tried to explain that he holds a concealed weapon permit. (While we’re still a little confused about the 3 ounces of liquid rule, we don’t buy that the guy didn’t know bringing a gun on a plane is a big no-no.) The bodyguard was arrested for criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, while Neal and Michaele traveled on to Nashville, where Neal is working on a solo album and playing a benefit with Journey.
