It was only a matter of time.
Former Real Housewife of DC, Michaele Salahi, is about to release her first single ”Bump It” and because that alone wouldn’t be enough to get the notoriously “colorful socialite” on the talk show circuit, Salahi is claiming her inspiration behind the song, is none other than the most powerful woman in media, Oprah.
Michaele contends that she was inspired to go into the studio after a conversation with Oprah backstage during President Obama’s inauguration, during which the Queen of Talk gushed, “Wow, you have an amazing voice!”
If it sounds like a conversation too media-friendly to be true for the fame hungry housewife, that’s because it is.
A representative for Winfrey released a statement saying,
Oprah briefly met Ms. Salahi backstage at the Kennedy Center after an Oprah Show taping in January 2009. However, there’s absolutely no truth to the report that they discussed Ms. Salahi’s vocal abilities.
Now, how could Michaele have misinterpreted that conversation? That’s like not getting an invitation, but thinking you’re invited to the party anyway…
Salahi’s single is now available via her iPhone app.
