Congratulations, Michaele Salahi. You’re getting written about on Why? Because you’ve announced that you’re auctioning off that red sari you wore when you (allegedly) crashed the White House state dinner last November. You’ve told the AP that you’re planning on putting the outfit on the block around the time your infamous door-busting gets screen time on that show you’re on, The Real Housewives of D.C. (Alas, we don’t know yet which blessed episode that will be.) I do applaud you for using your fame-whoring publicity-stunting elevated public profile to contribute to two excellent causes: victims of the Haitian earthquake and people with multiple sclerosis.

So now that you’ve set your mind to doing something admirable, how’s about you follow it up with another good deed? By which I mean: removing yourself from the public eye. Going away. Waving bye-bye. Come on — I know you have it in you to do the right thing. Think of the children!
