Salahis on SNL?
Edited on Sat Dec-05-09 07:44 PM by HipChick

Will Tareq and Michaele Salahi do a walk-on, on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live"?

Here's what we know:

As of Thursday, the NBC late-night show was planning to open with a skit in which, with cast members playing all the parts, President Obama would give a speech with his cabinet behind him. Suddenly, he's interrupted by the Salahis, who have crashed the speech -- Michaele Salahi in a red,red sari, just like the one she wore when she and her husband allegedly crashed that White House state dinner last month.

But word started getting out Friday that the Actual Salahis might also pop up in the bit.

A visit to "SNL's" 30 Rock studio might have come around the same time they were trying to get up to New York to appear on NBC's "Today" show.

(The Salahis are practically a part of the NBC Universal family, what with them being the most visible "possible" participants in the upcoming "Real Housewives of DC" on NBC Universal-owned Bravo cable network.)

Remember how, during their "Today" visit with Matt Lauer on Tuesday via-satellite from Washington,Tareq told Matt as he dodged yet another question, "Well, what we're going to do, we're going to definitely work with the Secret Service... to really shed light on this, and we're going to be coming up to New York, sitting on your couch - we're going to show you documentation from e-mails that, you know, you'll get a chance to see."

Well, there had been some talk of the Salahis cozying up on that couch with Matt on Friday, but those plans did not materialize. The Salahis instead showed up at the Warren County courthouse Friday morning so Tareq could turn over his Patek Philippe watch to pay off the $2,000-ish they owe their lawn mower.

At one point during those courtroom activities, a local Fox reporter asked Tareq about the report that the Salahis were doing a cameo on "SNL" the next night.

Tareq did not seem surprised by the question, The Post's James Hohmann told The TV Column. Instead, he "half-shrugged," turned, and nodded to his attorney, who said they would have no comment, Hohmann reports.

We called a "SNL" rep for comment, who explained they "never comment on who is guest starring on 'Saturday Night Live'" - as though somehow sensing we needed a good laugh.

"It's a live show," she added helpfully.

1. I certainly hope not. I will immediately change the channel.
NBC certainly shouldn't give this arrogant, attention-seeking, pushy pair ANYMORE press time. That's exactly what they are after. I wish the news would stop talking about them until they are arrested.
