Con Artist Barbie: Michaele Salahi

Missy Holt from Oakton High School's 1984 Yearbook

I recently read in the Washington Post this quote by Missy (now Michaele) Salahi: “I’m just a party Barbie girl! I like to have fun, and do some good on the way.” I wanted to throw up at this vapid comment coming from a woman in her 40’s. While some may think that describing herself as “a party Barbie girl” is the most honest thing Michaele has ever said, I think it’s an insult to the American Icon many of us grew up with and love so dearly – Barbie Millicent Roberts.

Although Barbie was made of plastic, she is more real than Michaele will ever be. Barbie embodies wholesome American values, and has done a great deal of good along the way, whereas Missy Holt a.k.a. Michaele Salahi has not. Barbie has had a number of occupations over the decades, but Con Artist was never one of them! Michaele may wish to be a Barbie as is evident with her platinum blonde extension, but she will never measure up. And believe me, Tareq is no Ken.
