Earlier today, Radar Online reported that former Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi had been kidnapped! Her husband Tareq phoned police and reported the blonde reality star missing when she didn’t come home.

The story took a turn when Orange County police explained Michaele had called them to let them know she was perfectly fine. In fact, she didn’t want Tareq to know where she was.

Then, things got just a little weirder when TMZ broke the news that Michaele ran away with Journey guitarist Neal Schon! Journey’s rep confirmed the rumor: "Nobody kidnapped her and they are in Memphis together." Apparently, the two have dated in the past.

Many speculate if this wild goose chase was just an attempted publicity stunt. After all, we are talking about the couple who crashed a White House dinner without an invite....
