Savannah Guthrie Mentions “Bravo Connection” During Nightly News Story on the Salahis

On NBC Nightly News, White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie delivered on something Matt Lauer teased this morning: “a dramatic and unexpected turn” in the saga of Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Obama’s first state dinner one week ago tonight. (Guthrie’s Nightly News story after the jump)

Guthrie also went where Lauer didn’t this morning, mentioning what she called “the Bravo connection.”

“We all know the couple is trying out for ‘The Real Housewives’ series on Bravo,” said Guthrie in the live introduction of her story, adding this disclosure: “Bravo and NBC News share the same parent company. But today NBC made clear the interview had nothing to do with that series on Bravo, nor was the couple paid to appear.”
