Washington: One of the stars of ‘The Real Housewives of Washington D.C.’ has said that she will not stop calling Tareq and Michaele Salahi the "White House party crashers."

A lawyer for the Salahis emailed the cast of ‘Real Housewives’ threatening to sue if any of them use the "defamatory" phrase - because, according to their lawyer, they technically never crashed the dinner.

Mark Lane, a lawyer for cast member Lynda Erkiletian, told that the Salahis could clear this whole thing up by just showing off the invitation.

"After eight months of exhausting the taxpayer``s money investigating this issue, she could save everyone``s time and money by just producing the invitation,” the TMZ quoted Lane as saying.

Lane says Erkiletian plans on using the phrase just the same, but with one concession -- she`ll throw the term "alleged" in front of it ... complete with air quotes.
