(CNN) – Famed White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi are going from party crashers to guests of honor.

"President Obama's most unexpected guests" are slated to headline a party at Caesar's Palace nightclub on January 16, according to the event organizer's Web site.

The pair are reportedly being paid $5,000 total for the appearance, according to the New York Post. A spokesman for the event could not be reached to confirm that number.

    NO one should show up at Cesears palace on January 16th, then the talk about these people would be over.

    They didn't sneak in, they were let in. They did nothing wrong,

    Obama's staff blew it. If we had to put someone in jail every time Obama's staff did something stupid we'd all be in jail.

    Good for them to turn this into a money maker.

    Wow these people really starve for attention dont they. Charges should have been filed against them for what they did. Do they honestly think that just because they have money that they are important? They need to get a life.

    Whoever is giving these two major embarrassments even $5 should be fired on the spot for gross displays of stupidity.

    A couple of do-nothings reaping the benefits of the 15 minutes of fame.

    It speaks poorly of us as a society.

    Since they didn't make it onto the "Desperate House Wives of Washington" show , I guess they have to try for fifteen more minutes of fame somewhere else. They certainly will never be invited to any credible or important social events anywhere or anytime ever again. It is kind of pathetic how they crave attention so much that they would stoop so low. She kind of looks like Ann Coulter. Gee, maybe they are related.

    So what do I need to do to get on a reality TV show or a free trip to Vegas?

    ...and anyone who goes to said nightclub on said evening is guilty of perpetrating and rewarding fraud. Not to mention clearly having nothing better to do on a Saturday night in Vegas.

    If anyone shows up at that party, it shows where the REAL problem is in this country- taste and priorities

    What's really strange about this is the idea that NIGHTCLUB goers will be influenced by POLITICAL "celebrities" (used very lightly).

    Now that's not to say people who attend nightclubs don't pay attention to politics, I just don't see them choosing a club based on it.

  13. Seriously?

    Stupid and ridiculous concept and it irritates the hell out of me that you would give these egotistical fame mongers any more publicity than they have already had. Why aren't they in jail?

    Who cares, they no longer warrant our attention, it is you the media who finds a place for them in the spot light.

    Why have these people not yet appeared before a judge? And even if the news cycle is now 24 hours, is there not enough else going on in the world that CNN has to fill space with these completely oblivious clowns?

    I want to know why Obozos. "Social Secretary" whose job it is to monitor the guest list like all the rest have done for a 100 years, has not been fired and gone????Instead she plops her big butt down and pretends to be one of guests, i guess it is because she is black and just got off welfare last January..

    So this is what society comes to, rewarding people when the white house is invaded by publicity seeking gate crashers, and that goes for these people too.

    Is Caesar's doing so poorly that they have to invite two losers to attract attention? That makes Caesars a loser and I will never visit their stupid casino. More over, I will never add one dime to the pockets of criminals, who craved so much attention that they had to sneak into the White House.

    NEWSFLASH To SORRY WANNABES:
    If you don't have an invitation to the White House, don't take a shower, buy a new dress, go get your hair coiffed, and drag your sorry rear to the the people's house. Stay home like everyone else without an invitation– because you weren't INVITED.

    Maybe they can use the $5000 to pay off some of their creditors. Oh yeah, probably not happening based on their track record...

    These terrorists should be in Gitmo instead of Vegas.

    I can understand paying a tall blonde to host your party, but why bother with the dude?
