There is a love affair going on in India the likes of which have not been seen since France took a serious shine to Jerry Lewis.
From diet tips to how to ditch a boring, useless husband, just the mention of White House party crasher Michaele Salahi in India will turn heads and sell millions of newspapers.
What is it that makes Michaele the honey of India’s dew? “It’s the fact that we all have the image of a very tall, very blonde woman wearing an Indian sari so beautifully,” claims Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi. “We love beautiful people, and Michaele to us is beauty personified, except, of course, for her blonde hair.”
In India, women with dark hair wearing beautiful saris is just a given. That is why, when Salahi showed up on the scene in November 2009 beautifully coiffed and wearing a gorgeous red and gold sari, all India’s eyes were on her. That is, all Indian men’s eyes were on her.
“She is so fake,” claims famous Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai. “If I had a rupee for every time I saw an Indian man drool over her photograph…it disgusts me.”
Still, when Michaele Salahi blinks, everyone in India takes notice. Her leaving Tareq for Journey member Neal Schon shocked the entire nation, but many claim it is because she is a very strong, independent woman who knows how to find money, “and that,” says Oberoi, “has always been a very desirable trait for women in India.”
