These Michaele Salahi stories just keep getting better and better! First her fight with Whoopi on The View and now this.

The Real Housewives of DC starlet skipped the show's official premiere party, but the Washington Post reports that Michaele and her hubby got served with court papers at their own private party late last week.

PR firm Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications claims the couple owes over $15,000 in unpaid fees from a 2008 polo event.

BWF prez Steve Winter says the following: "It was an affidavit for debtors interrogatory. It means they'll have to appear in court to discuss their financial means - how they are capable of paying off the debt."

Hmm, I have a feeling that this is one situation where bad press isn't always good press.
