White House gatecrashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi say they want to "return to who we were." "We've been the 'it couple' for the past decade," Michaele tells Bernard Goldberg of HBO's "Real Sports" in a profile of their charity, "America's Polo Cup," airing tonight. Their annual polo match, currently under investigation by the state of Virginia for possible fraud, was bare-bones this year with sponsors and contenders from India backing out. Tareq rounded up Pakistani players from Florida who looked the part and dubbed them the Indian Delegation. Six of 20 vendors told HBO the Salahis owe them sums ranging up to $25,000. "Do we owe people money? Sure, sure," Tareq told Goldberg, saying he's waiting to collect his debts. "It's a trickle-down effect," Tareq added. The DC police are investigating how the Salahis finagled a police escort for their white limo in a scene for "The Real Housewives of DC."

  1. I am the executive editor of Luxury Dossier, life at a gallop ( I personally formed Team Indo-Pak to play in the americas Polo Cup against Salahi's Team USA on June 12th. Our team captain, Sohail Queraeshi, is the president of the South Dehli Polo Club in India and has played with Team India in Barbados. To say that Salahi "rounded up some Pakistanis from Florida" to mount the team is erroneous. HBO producers asked me to fact check their piece, which I did; then, they proceeded to follow through with their own preconcieved notions about the match. There were countless errors of fact and terminology in this piece. The Salahis, despite their current controversies, have contributed greatly to the game of polo throughout the world.
