She may be whacky and possibly a little delusional, but we do have to give her credit for speaking so candidly.
The Real Housewives Of D.C. star and White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi has announced that she has been battling multiple sclerosis - which is an inflammatory disease that affects the central nervous system - for 17 years!
"This is the first time I've said it publicly. My own family, my cousins, a lot of the people dearest to me - my best friend just found out - it's something I kept personal. I think a lot of people do with chronic illnesses or any type of disease, whether it's heart [disease] or whatever you deal with, you know, breast cancer, so for me, I kept it personal because I never wanted to be judged, never wanted to have pity, and I certainly wanted to hold on to my job. I think we are making strides in America every year but maybe this time with the White House and everything that took place, maybe all this happened for a reason and I can do something good to help someone else."
We certainly hope you do, bb.
We think it's very commendable that you're bringing awareness to such a difficult and sometimes debilitating condition.
Now stop acting like a crazy person on TV so we don't have to rag on you!
Thoughts?? What do U think about Michaele's announcement??
