Don't blame it on Rio; blame it on Michaele. The Salahis' Doberman Pinscher, Rio, died in the bed Tareq Salahi used to share with his soon-to-be ex, Michaele, Sunday night, TMZ reports. Rio suffered a heart attack a few weeks ago and was in fragile health before his owner ran off with Neal Schon, Journey's guitarist. Since then, Tareq reports the dog has suffered, and subsequently died from, a broken heart. It was an eventful weekend for Tareq. He spent the wee hours of Sunday morning allegedly fielding calls from the same Oregon area code Michaele called from after he'd reported her kidnapped. Tareq believes his wife and rocker paramour were prank calling him after receiving four calls from the number. After he called back, a man answered, and Tareq could hear loud noise in the background, according to TMZ. Tareq seems to believe his wife and Schon are messing with his mind, but Michaele's reps say it wasn't her pranking him. On Sunday, Tareq spent the day at his family's vineyard's auction. He bought back a few things at the bankruptcy auction, including some equipment and the name and trademark of the vineyard - seems he wants to get things up and running again. But Michaele shouldn't count on getting a piece of that lucrative pie in the couple's split - TMZ has obtained a copy of the couple's prenuptial agreement, and according to it, Michaele automatically loses her right to property, money and spousal support if she commits adultery.
