Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi, whose husband had reported her missing earlier this week, has apparently run off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon. According to TMZ, Salahi has been hanging out with Schon, her new boyfriend, in Memphis, where his band performed a concert with Foreigner and Night Ranger last night at the FedExForum.

TMZ reports that Salahi and Schon have dated in the past, and that she has described their relationship as "intimate and passionate." Clearly this was a mystery to Salahi's husband, Tareq, who believed she had been kidnapped on Tuesday.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
