    A "Real Housewives of D.C." cast member reportedly doused with wine by alleged White House gate crasher and "Real" housewife husband Tareq Salahi said that followed two other women getting cursed out by the fame monger.

    Members of the "Housewives" cast were dining in Beverly Hills with their friends and Bravo representatives when Tareq Salahi apparently threw a glass of wine in the face of Lynda Erkiletian, who had apparently said something unfavorable about his wife, Michaele. Tareq then stormed out of the room.

    "I think I really have disconnected the anger or the fear of who he is or how he behaved because it originated at of the fact that he was abusing two other women verbally at our table, and I was all the way at the end of our 12-person table and could hear him, and we had just spent like 12 hours together... basically promoting our show, and I thought, 'You know, it's midnight, we're all ready to go home; can we save this for another day?' and he proceeded to curse me out and throw wine in my face," she said.

    She admitted that she knows such drama gives the show more attention and likely more ratings.

    In regards to the alleged state dinner crashing, Erkiletian said it was a relief that the investigation ended because for several months, the airing of the show was delayed due to the controversy caused when the Salahis slipped in without an invitation.

    Erkiletian, a mother who runs a modeling agency in D.C., thought the first episode -- broadcast last week -- was funnier than she was expecting for all the cast members.
