The battle royale rages on. The latest, when it comes to Tareq and Michaele Salahi, has the former "Real Housewives of D.C." star throwing out some hefty allegations against her estranged polo playing husband. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Michaele is requesting that the couple's legal separation be expedited due to Tareq's "psychotic scare tactics" that have Michaele fearing for her life.

TMZ also reports that the documents describe Michaele's accusations of physical abuse in the summer of 2011, actions that drove her to Journey guitarist, Neal Schon -- who has recently become embattled in his own legal drama surrounding a leaked nude photo.

But Tareq isn't staying mum on his soon-to-be ex-wife's harsh allegations. The 42-year-old, who became famous for crashing a White House state dinner with his wife, insists that there is no truth behind her stories of emotional abuse.

In September, the couple made headlines after Tareq went to the police, claiming that Michaele had been kidnapped. But it turns out that his estranged wife had run off -- on her own will -- with lover, Schon.

Although the D.C. Housewives got the boot, the ladies below are still going strong with the drama on and off-screen.
