Now here’s a reality cocktail with a tasty splash of irony.

The White House party crashers found their own party crashed–by the law.

Michaele and Tareq Salahi are being sued by a PR firm and were served with court papers Thursday night during their private premiere party for their new reality show, ‘The Real Housewives of D.C.‘ according to The Washington Post.

The lawsuit, filed by PR firm Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, alleges that Michaele, 44, and husband Tareq, 41, who founded America’s Polo Cup, owe approximately $15,000 in unpaid fees from a 2008 polo event.

“It was an affidavit for debtors interrogatory,” Steve Winter, president of BWF, explained to the Post. “It means they’ll have to appear in court to discuss their financial means — how they are capable of paying off the debt.”

According to a witness, the Salahis didn’t take the news very well.

“The man we hired to serve the papers was able to get a moment with Tareq. He took the papers, then he dropped them,” said BWF employee Whitney Stringer, who accompanied the process server. After a second attempt was made to deliver the documents, Salahi dropped the papers again and called security.

The trouble-making twosome also allegedly skipped out on paying the tab, claims the Post.
