‘Housewives of D.C.’ star opens up about multiple sclerosis

HollywoodNews.com: While in the middle of a first season of drama, ‘Real Housewives of D.C.’ star Michaele Salahi is opening up about being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seven years ago.

The reality TV star and reported White House party crasher is talking publicly about the illness for the first time as it is discussed in a new book, ‘Cirque du Salahi,’ written by Diane Dimond, states PopEater.

Keeping the illness private for so long apparently seemed like Salahi’s only choice: “I kept it personal because I never wanted to be judged, never wanted to have pity, and I certainly wanted to hold on to my job.”

Salahi works now on keeping a positive mindset about the nervous system disorder so that she can get through all the difficulties.

    She’s an anorexic fame whore that needs to spend time locked up to get a clue about what ms really is. After 17 years suffering with ms, she would not be be getting botox, boobs or other chemicals in her body. That could kill someone suffering from ms.

    I watched this show, because I was — like many others who live in the D.C. area — curious about these women, especially the Salahis …. and these are five of THE STRANGEST women I have ever even heard of. Maybe you have to be, to even want to be on this kind of show.

    And it may be an awful thing to say, but I don’t believe this Michaele has MS — I think it’s just one of their unending armory of ploys and frauds of this. This to gain sympathy.

    This is my last ‘Housewives’ …. or so I claim ….
