At least one batch of attention whoring broads have been given the “Ho Sit Down” by Bravo.
The Real Housewives of D.C. have been shut down after only one season. We blame Tareq Salahi!
Bethesda-based Half Yard Productions contacted the cast to let them know Washington’s contribution to Bravo’s hot docu-soap franchise would not be picked up for a second season.
It marks the first time in “Housewives” history that an iteration has not moved forward for a second season. The franchise got its start 2006 at the height of ABC network’s “Desperate Housewives” mania.
“We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity,” Andy Cohen, Bravo’s executive vice president of original programming and development, said in a an e-mail exchange with the TV Column in response to our query on Thursday.
“In fact, Cat is booked on our April 28th ‘Watch What Happens Live Royal Wedding Spectacular’,” added Cohen – ever the showman.
In case you don’t even remember these broads, consider yourself lucky. The biggest loony tune of the bunch was Michaele Salahi aka White House Wedding Crasher, followed closedly by Cat Ommanney, who is perfect guest for Bravo’s Royal Wedding special since she’s rumored to have snogged Prince Harry.
With ‘Real Housewives of the OC” and “Real Housewives of NY” in constant current rotation and new episodes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (the full cast will return) and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on the way no one will even notice the difference.
