Journey Stops Here: Michaele Salahi Ran Off With Neal Schon

Posted September 16, 2011 by J Matthew Cobb in News

The Housewife episode that never aired: Michaele Salami bails on husband for Journey star

If only Bravo ordered another season of The Real Housewives Of DC…

On Wednesday, former Housewife Michaele Salahi was reported missing from her husband Tareq, claiming his wife was abducted since she did not pack any of her belongings.

It was also reported that the FBI was investigating the matter after he received a phone call from an unknown listed Colorado number. Days later, TMZ unfolds the truth as Michaele Salami is found…and is safewith Journey guitarist Neal Schon in Memphis.

Details also include that the rocker is currently dating Salami. The forty-five year old reality TV star also attended his concert in Nashville the night before and is currently in Memphis with Schon, gearing up for Journey’s joint performance with Foreigner, while in the midst of their sold-out Eclipse tour.

Scoop Marketing, the rep for Journey, confirmed with TMZ that “Nobody kidnapped her and they are in Memphis together.”

Since the story broke, TMZ’s reporters did a little digging on Salahi’s relationship with Schon, 57, who divorced Amber Kozan in 2008, and unveiled that Salahi have had a lengthy relationship with the rocker.

We’ve also confirmed Michaele has dated Schon in the past — seen above partying at the Salahis’ winery last year — and she’s called it an “intimate and passionate relationship.”

Us Weekly added more details to the story, stating that the two were acquainted in 1995 when “Journey was on tour and they maintained a relationship as friends ever since.”

Tareq Salahi, still married to Michaele, commented on her discovery, stating that he is just glad that she is alive and alright.

So where should the Feds forward the bill after wasting their time on this needless search? Schon’s home or Salahi’s?

Remember the Salahis were in the news for some more soap opera drama after appearing unannounced at a White House dinner back in 2009. And the drama just keeps on coming.

This here is some real freaky Hollywood s–t. The kind of s–t that Bravo would’ve benefited from.
