An NBC representative said, "no money changed hands," for the sit down, although there have been reports that the couple was seeking a large paycheck for interviews.

Apparently the White House stunt was not the first time the Salahi's have snuck into a high profile event. The two also wiggled into a recent Congressional Black Caucus Dinner, where President Obama spoke.
