A Virginia couple could face felony charges, after bragging on facebook they crashed the White House State Dinner Tuesday night.The Obama's' first state dinner was a hot ticket. So hot that two aspiring reality T.V. stars apparently crashed the party. Tareek and Michaela Salahee, two socialites vying for roles in the upcoming show "The Real Housewives of Washington" were announced.

"Mr.and Mrs. Salahi,"

But the White House said they were not invited, marking what appears to be the first time in modern history anyone's crashed a state dinner. Photos published on their facebook page, show the couple with high profile guests, like Vice President Joe Biden and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The secret service is looking into how the couple got past security, but the threat was low. One official saying: "These individuals went through magnetometers and other levels of security, as did all guests attending the dinner."

They reportedly left before being seated for dinner. Lying to the secret service could bring a felony charge.
