Guess Whoopi isn't her first victim!
Real Housewives of D.C.'s Michaele Salahi claimed she was assaulted after being touched by attorney Cynthia Revesman early this year.
“When I saw this (on The View) I thought, this is the same thing, where not even a touching becomes a hit,” said Revesman.
Revesman was representing a client who was suing Salahi for an unpaid bill. During questioning, she turned to Michaele and her “finger touched her arm”.
The attorney added:
“Michaele then begin screaming “stop hitting me” and she turned to the bailiffs and she said 'make sure she doesn’t hit me again'”
My client was standing right next to me and I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ and she responded, ‘You just hit me’.
I said, ‘No I didn’t, I don’t understand what’s going on here.’ The bailiffs were all looking at me throwing their hands up in the air.”
Michaele even filed a criminal complaint that was thrown out a few months later.
“What they do is they take the assault charge and go after the opposing council in the other side; they want you to barter their criminal process with a civil process going on," said Revesman. "That is their whole m.o (modus operandi).”
