Washington, Nov. 29 (ANI): The gatecrashing Salahis are seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars from television channels to tell how they managed to enter the first state dinner of the Obama era in honour of Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.
According to The New York Times, the aspiring reality TV stars - Michaele and Tareq Salahi - had postponed plans for an interview Monday on CNN's "Larry King Live" and were seeking top-dollar bids for their first television interview.
A television network executive said the couple's asking price for an interview was in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"They are asking for best offers from all the networks," the executive said.
Separately, a CNN spokesman confirmed that the appearance on King's talk show was postponed on Friday.
The Salahis, who embarrassed the Secret Service by posing for the cameras with President Obama and many of his bonafide guests at the glittering event, remained out of sight on Saturday and their spokeswoman did not return calls.
Meanwhile, the upscale salon where Michaele Salahi prepared for the big event is yet to be paid.
James Packard-Gomez, the salon's creative director, dropped everything to help Salahi arrange her now famous red sari. But when he asked her to show him her White House invitation, he was startled that she could not produce it.
"My guests pretty much always show me the invitation when it's the hottest party in town. I know a lot of guests that were on the 'A list' that were not invited. So why was she?" Packard-Gomez said. (ANI)
