(Newser) – White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi happily kicked up her heels at a recent alumni performance of the Washington Redskins cheerleaders. The only problem? She has never been a Redskins cheerleader and had no business at the half-time event at a September game against St. Louis. "She was never at an audition, never at a game and never performed" as an original cheerleader, said a team choreographer. Cheerleaders became suspicious when Salahi, who was being filmed for a possible appearance on the Real Housewives of DC, couldn't execute the moves.

When producers asked if Salahi could be moved to the front of the line during filming, the choreographer refused. "I already had the formation, and besides, she couldn't dance," she told the Washington Post. The choreographer said she was "unnerved" by the incident. "For her to get out there and think she can just shake her pompoms is upsetting," she said. The Salahis had no comment.
