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."

    This is the worst HW show yet. Bravo has sunk to a new low. The DC peeps are unbelievable, and racists. What if you don't like Tyra? Is that cause for all those looks these women gave each other? Just because a white woman said it. Who cares? I know it's not easy to avoid certain subjects, especially in DC, but politics and cooking classes apparently do not mix. Bottom line, everyone's entitled to their opinion, just not in that kitchen!
