(Newser) – It only sounds like deja vu all over again: Party crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi were stopped in a limo near the White House last night, but it doesn't look like they were trying to bust their way into their second state dinner. Their driver ran a red light a few blocks from the action around 8pm, signaled to turn into a restricted area, and was stopped by the Secret Service.

The couple continued on to a restaurant a few blocks away with friends and cameramen in tow, who were likely filming the couple as part of Bravo's Real Housewives of DC, reports the AP.
