Things really don't seem to be going Tareq Salahi's way: After being ditched by wife Michaele Salahi for a Journey guitarist, the Real Housewives of D.C. husband is now being called out for some unpaid debt — namely, almost $5,000 in back taxes that he owes to the state of Virginia.
As TMZ reports, documents show that the Real Househusband and original White House gate-crasher owes $4,395.05 in taxes from 2008 for his now-defunct winery, Oasis Vineyards. Housewives fans will recall that the vineyard was featured prominently on the show, despite Tareq's well-known reputation for shady business dealings in the D.C. area. Sounds like Tareq didn't learn his lesson, even after being called out on national television for his financial misconduct.
Most recently, Tareq and Michaele Salahi put in their bid to be featured on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but the couple was flatly denied by Andy Cohen, who said simply, "We are not interested." Ouch! Shortly thereafter, the pair made headlines again after Tareq reported that Michaele had gone missing — but as it turns out, she was just shacked up with her ex-flame, Journey musician Neal Schon.
We can't help but feel bad for Tareq, especially given this most recent news — the poor guy just can't seem to catch a break!
