'Girl Can't Help It,' Salahi says yes to Journey axeman's proposal

It was a case of rock 'n' roll romance as Journey guitarist Neal Schon proposed to one-time White House party crasher and reality TV star Michaele Salahi on stage Sunday night in Baltimore, her manager said.

Salahi accepted the proposal with "Open Arms," according to Gina Rodriguez.

Their relationship began under a cloud in September 2011 when the "Real Housewives of D.C." star was reported missing by her then-husband of nearly eight years Tareq Salahi.

"It is our belief ... Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and is being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities, she is OK," Rodriguez, who managed Tareq Salahi at the time, said.

But instead, the reality show personality had traveled to Memphis, where Journey was performing, to be with Schon, a representative with Scoop Marketing, Schon's management company, told CNN.

She told a sheriff's deputy that she was "with a good friend and was where she wanted to be," Warren County, Virginia, Sheriff Danny McEathron said in a statement.

A short time later, Tareq Salahi filed for divorce.

    If I knew this would eventually have taken place 30 years ago, when Journey would of come on the radio, I would of switched stations.

    Ah, Philip,you couldn't hold a candle to my husband, and your posts about chrissy, raven, and myself are extremely immature and unnecessary.

    You seriously need to get over your martyr syndrome.

    You may certainly think that about yourself, but as there is no violence whatsoever in my marriage, you will have to go panhandling for spare change elswehere.

    One of these bored housewives was AOL s/n Originalwife. She was a democrat married to a very high ranking military official...hard-line Right winger. She was also addicted to xanax when I met her. It was through her that I learned of how popular xanax is with the wives of powerful men, and why. Many get bored and go online to have affairs. Xanax makes the experience more real. Lanie (Originalwife) used to say you could rob a bank with a smile on your face with xanax. Odd drug this xanax to be sure.
    I came to know another gal like this who lived next door to president Bush near Crawford Texas! She could hear automatic rifle fire from her other neighbors exotic game hunting ranch. (Ted Nugent) Befriend a woman married to one and find-out what's really going on with abusive men.

    Sounds like she was in good hands, just not in the public's eye. Thats how it should be, not every celebrity loves the spotlight and their entire life being scrutinized by the media.
