Who is pathetic enough to buy the Salahi’s dress?

I just read a report in the Washington Post that the D.C.’s most notorious real housewife,  Salahi, will auction the red and gold sari-style dress that she wore to the state dinner with her husband Tareq when the two crashed a White House state dinner for India last year.

The Old Town Alexandria–based Potomack Company auction house will put the dress on the block on October 2. Argetsinger reports that the dress is estimated to go for between $2,000 and $3,000 and that 80% of the proceeds will go to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund and to an as-yet-unnamed local charity.

I am dying to blog about the pathetic person who will end up paying even $1 for the dress. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Indian style dress, but the whole thing, the story, and what the couple have been doing for fame is really pathetic.
