Michaele Salahi Flashes $15,000 Diamond Ring from Neal Schon
This D.C. Real Housewife's journey is still going!
Michaele Salahi was recently photographed with some major bling: a $15,000 diamond ring, gifted to her from love Neal Schon, longtime guitarist for Journey. Although Salahi's rock is suspiciously on her wedding finger, TMZ claims the dazzler isn't an engagement ring but a "message of love."
The Real Housewives of DC star, 45, and the rocker, 57, have made headlines with their love affair since September. The reality star's husband of eight years, Tareq Salahi called the FBI reporting his wife "kidnapped or abducted" after she hadn't called or returned home for a few days. In reality, the blonde (and fellow White House crasher with her husband in 2009) had fled to D.C. to catch Schon's band's show in Memphis.
The duo first met on a Journey tour in 1995, where they briefly dated until Salahi left, disdaining life on the road. In 2003, Salahi married Tareq, 43, a former vineyard owner and public official. New reports claim Salahi and Schon secretly maintained contact ever since their initial meeting, but they've only had a romance going for the past two years.
But the rekindled relationship is equally messy on Schon's end. The "Don't Stop Believin'" frontman married Playboy playmate Ava Fabian in a Parisian ceremony in July.
