The411:  When you say Salahi what is the first thing you think of?  Many of you would say it's the couple who gained national attention for attending President Barack Obama's White House Dinner without an invitation while others would say their reality show.  As I prepared to leave work late Wednesday, I received an email that said "Breaking News on Salahi".  I could not imagine what was going on.  The Real Housewives D.C couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi sent a statement.  I believe the couple had received so many inquiries in regards to Tareq's father Dirgham Salahi passing that the couple sent a statement to the media. I held onto the email because I wanted to make sure that the statement was indeed real.  People are really interested in this couple so I thought some would share the statement with you.  “In recent days, we have come together as a family in honor of Dirgham Salahi, whom we loved his long life, and now we grieve at his loss.  We appreciate that members of our family are the subject of some media interest for various reasons.  But we really need to mourn in private, as grief should never be a spectacle, rather it must be a sacred meditation, and we hope you'll understand why we will not have the media at any of the rituals celebrating this wonderful man, including any services or receptions that may occur in private in the future. We are sure many of you understand our wishes as you've known and loved those you have lost - and would not want intrusions or distractions yourself at such a time. We are grateful for those of you who will respect our wishes.  We hope you will instead join us in prayer that Dirgham Salahi may rest in peace.”
Thank you. 
The Salahi Family
