That's right. Bravo is headed to Washington in search of real women who are more than willing to air their dirty laundry and domestic dysfunction for all to see. Read: The Real Housewives Report Card: Who Gets An "A"?
"Bravo is scouting the D.C. area to identify the city's alluring and discriminating residents, those women who have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings and fundraisers in Washington society. These leading members of D.C. society are in the know and comfortable discussing everything from the economy to high fashion," said Frances Berwick, executive vice president and general manager of Bravo Media.
These days, the most fashionable D.C. lady is clearly Michelle Obama. But don't expect Mrs. President to be making a cameo appearance. We suspect the show's cat fights and Botox parties are a bit too low brow for her liking.
We hope the show will tap into the city's reputation for sexy scandals.
Perhaps they'll hit up Rita Jenrette, ex-wife of former politico John Jenrette. Jenrette and his then-wife were caught having sex behind a pillar on the steps of the Capitol Building back when he was a Congressman. Read: 10 Places To Have Sex Before You Die
We doubt that Ashley Dupre is currently keeping house in D.C. but if the D.C. Housewives ever throw a party at the Mayflower, we know who will top the guest list.
And for sure Bravo will want to dig up someone with a criminal past akin to New Jersey housewife Danielle Staub's. As fans of the show already know, Staub was arrested back in 1980 for her alleged involvement in the kidnapping of a man who owed her friend drug money. Staub's mug shot is surprisingly similar to her current profile, save for a few nips and tucks.
We can't wait for the drama that is sure to ensue on location in our nation's capital. By the time this series is over, we'll have free botox for the unemployed and one nation under gaudy.
