They crashed a White House State Dinner, and now they’re crashing a book. Michaele and Tareq Salahi are cooperating with reporter Diane Dimond on Cirque du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust, which they will publish via CreateSpace on September 17.
The book is embargoed, but details from a press release reveal that the book “will take readers inside the glamorous, mysterious and oft-misunderstood lives of the Salahis, the Washington, D.C. power couple that instantly became famous after attending a November 2009 White House event.” Dimond, who also wrote Be Careful Who You Love: Inside the Michael Jackson Case, promises to reveal “documents, photographs and the innermost secrets of [the Salahis'] lives.”
Literary agent Sharlene Martin, who repped the Goldman family in taking back the rights of O.J. Simpson’s If I Did It, said she chose to publish the book via Amazon imprint CreateSpace “because the traditional publishing route would be too slow to accommodate the timeliness of this story.” The Salahis are participating in the upcoming Bravo series The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C., which premieres August 5.
Paperback and e-book editions of the book will be available for pre-order on August 4.
