”I look forward to viewers learning who the REAL Tareq Salahi is,” says Tareq Salahi, the branded ‘alleged White House Party Crasher,’ divorced husband of Real Housewife of DC Michaele Salahi and candidate for VA Governor.
Today, Campbell Media Group Producer John Campbell (America’s Team: Being a US Air Force Thunderbird, The Hidden Adirondacks, Enter the Haggis: Live at Lanigan’s Ball) announced plans for a documentary film featuring Tareq Salahi and his run for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“Much has been said about me over the past few years that’s inaccurate. People, other than those close to me, have no idea what I’m about. This documentary will give viewers a chance to a more personal side of me beyond all the media hype.
It’s also a story of never giving up. If I can pull myself up by the boot straps, anyone can. I’m hoping my story will motivate people to do just that. One other thing this project will do is feature my passion for the great state of Virginia. I’m at a point in my life where I want to make a difference…
It’s important to note that I’m not the creative behind this documentary….Mr. John Campbell and his team are. They approached me after I announced my intention to run for Governor. What comes out in the project is what went down. This is not a scripted or a guided reality program.”
Filming officially launches on Sunday, September 16th at a kick-off celebration billed as “Crash the Candidate’s BBQ”…..playing off those infamous allegations.
Explains Campbell in a press release: “Tareq’s story is powerful. When I learned that he was running for Virginia Governor, I immediately thought of documenting the process….more as a human interest story…a story of resilience and the human spirit. Here we have a guy whose triumphs and tribulations have been aired globally….and could have easily hidden for a few years…yet he didn’t. After much soul searching, he decides to go back to his roots…to his passions…one being politics. This documentary has absolutely no political motivation one way or another.”
