New York: Michaele Salahi is ready to move on. She is sure President Barack Obama is, too, because he has joked about her and her husband's infamous White House gate-crashing episode. And so she thinks the judicial system should be ready to move on, as well.

"To be honest, I don't know where it's at," she told The Associated Press, speaking of the criminal investigation by a federal grand jury, which still could lead to prison time for the party-going, polo-loving couple from Virginia's wine country. "But our attorneys have said to go on with our lives."

"And if the president and vice president are joking about it," she added, "I think they're ready to move forward, too."

Certainly the Salahis are taking their attorneys' advice.

Far from staying quietly out of the spotlight, they are happily promoting the Aug 5 debut of Bravo's "Real Housewives of DC," in which, judging from the first episode, Michaele takes center stage, along with the incident that got her into trouble.

"I can't wait!" Salahi said in a telephone interview Monday.

"This is full circle for me. I think the world will see that we're not just about that one night. We're not just two people who went to a dinner."

It was a state dinner given by Obama and his wife Michelle for Manmohan Singh, India's prime minister, and his wife, Gursharan Kaur.
