Hearing the latest details of the scandalous romance between Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon plays a little bit like a Journey song: We’re all a little sick of it at this point and you’d probably enjoy it way more after having a few at the bar. Alas, it is too early in the morning for that and let’s face it, “Don’t Stop Believin'” will never go away.
The latest chapter in the Salahi-Salahi-Schon saga started a few weeks ago when The Real Housewives of D.C. star was believed to be missing by her party-crasher-in-crime, husband Tareq Salahi, when really she’d just run off with the guitarist from Journey, Neal Schon. (I know PopWatchers, if you’d had a nickel for every time!) Since then Tareq has filed for divorce and has spoken out about his soon-to-be ex-wife to E!, telling them that because of Schon’s track record (Schon has reportedly been married five times) “Michaele will be the victim.” Tareq, who claims Schon sent lewd photos of himself to a joint email account, also said his wife’s actions were something “a groupie sl– does.”
Meanwhile, Schon and Mrs. Salahi seem to be paying no mind, because they are in love. Which, as we’ve learned from other legit couples like this, knows no boundaries. The pair recently talked to The Daily Beast and shared that they’ve actually been in love with one another for 15 years and that Michaele chose Tareq over Schon because she thought, “Life on the road with a rock band … well, I thought I might not have been able to keep up.” But true love, and some backstage passes to a Journey show in Virginia a few weeks ago, prevailed and she was back in his open arms. As Schon declared to The Daily Beast, “I won!”
And they all lived happily ever after. The end. Now let us never speak of this again.
