If you recall, Tareq Salahi was plenty pissed when his wife Michaele, formerly of The Real Housewives of D.C., ran off with Journey frontman Neal Schon and left his ass. So pissed in fact, that in February he sued her and Schon for $50 million for all sorts of reasons, but basically because they embarrassed him ... and because he's pathetic.
I know you've all been waiting with bated breath to see just what a judge would say about his lawsuit (not!), and finally the verdict is in: He's getting nothing, because the judged laughed him right out of court. Okay, there are no reports that the judge actually laughed, but I bet he did -- even if just on the inside. Officially, the judge threw out his sorry lawsuit calling it "not legally sufficient."
That's right, all of his whiny, ridiculous complaints -- including the one in which he claimed injuries from a "metaphorical slap in the face," Schon reportedly delivered to him by emailing Tareq a picture of his penis and calling him to say, "I'm f**king your wife" -- hold no water in court. Can I get a big, HA!?
So now what's Tareq going to do? He has well surpassed his 15 minutes of fame and made an idiot of himself in the process. The lawsuit was his last grasp to cash in on it, and now that has slipped through his fingers. He might actually have to -- gasp! -- work for a living. He recently spoke to the Washingtonian about how he's turned his life around (and is such a victim) and is focusing again on his Oasis Vineyard as well as a potential new food and wine show there. So yeah, there's no hope of him just going way. I can't imagine what kind of publicity stunt he'll try next, because I'm sure he won't stop.
I wish I could muster up even an ounce of sympathy for the guy. I mean now he's left alone and his dreams of raking in the big bucks have been dashed. But I can't. He did this to himself, and he deserves exactly what he got -- nada. Case dismissed.
Is anyone surprised that Tareq Salahi's lawsuit was thrown out? Does anyone feel sorry for him?
