Clip Of Salahis On ET

Post and Clip from ET online.

Dubbed "the White House party crashers," Tareq and Michaele Salahi speak out to Diane Dimond about her secret illness.

She claims her rail thin figure -- criticized by her "The Real Housewives of D.C." castmates and the subject of eating disorder speculations -- is actually a result of multiple sclerosis.

Coming out publicly, she says, is "very hard, but at the same time very liberating. I feel I can do something really good now. After the White House, I didn't understand all that was happening. My life became this media spin. I thought maybe this is here to push me to become someone ... showing that you can live a healthy, productive life."

She says she's kept her battle with MS a secret for 17 years. "It's hard to even get the words out," she adds.

Of their now infamous trip to the White House, Tareq stands by his assertion that they didn't crash the party, saying, "If you're going to crash the White House, you're not going to inform the DNC chairman that we're heading to the White House, hope to see you there in a couple days."

In other news, Michaele confirms to ET that she has been contacted by Playboy, "I'm flattered and honored that Hugh Hefner would consider me." When asked if she will pose for the magazine, she smiles and says, "Watch and see what happens!"

The couple further details Michaele's illness, as well as what happened after their appearance at the White House state dinner in Diane's new book Cirque Du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust -- now available on
