Michaele's Barbie dreams.   (HeroBuilders)

(Newser) – In her never-ending quest to promote herself, Michaele Salahi has arranged to recreate herself as a gatecrashing action figure. Her plastic mini-me, dudded out in her red ninja White House State Dinner sari and shawl, has been fashioned by HeroBuilders, which has also made Sarah Palin, Jersey Shore and Jon and Kate Gosselin action figures. Salahi, captivated by a Barbie dream, tried to pitch her teeny self to Mattel, but the toy company wasn't biting. It wasn't HeroBuilders' idea to do the doll, either, the company founder tells Politico. "We got a call from her agent," Emil Vicale explained.

“We’ve been contacted by tons of people in the past but have just never done it because people have a weird sense of the value of themselves. They think they’re going to sell a million dolls. That never ever happens,” he added. As for Salahi, “some people like her and some hate her. I don’t know how people will respond to this woman."

Looks like a cheap poorly made Barbie doll that has been ridden hard and put up wet. Doesnt do anything but stand there or fall over.
