Bravo's original programming chief Andy Cohen also confirmed the cancellation."We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise," Cohen tells the Washington Post. "I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity."Rumors about the fate of "RHODC" have been swirling pretty much since the show's season ended in October and Bravo, deviating from its usual pattern, took a wait-and-see approach to ordering a second season. It averaged a respectable 1.4 million viewers in its first season, but when "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which premiered... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/real-housewives-of-dc-canceled----for-real-this-time.html

The latest Real Housewives news involves another Housewife in a financial slump, while another uses her status as a Housewife for a positive cause. New York It pains me to report that Sonja Morgan, last year's newest addition to The Real Housewives of New York (and fan favorite), is having a financial crisis of her own having to file for bankruptcy, according to The Wall Street Journal. “The decision to seek bankruptcy relief was not an easy one, but unfortunately, I am at a crossroads in my life,” Sonja declared in court papers filed Wednesday. She listed on her petition for bankruptcy $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets, citing a failed venture in filmmaking as the cause of her financial woes.

Still, there were revelations to be made and tears to be shed. Michaele Salahi told Cat Ommanney that she "made a lot of people cry," but the only person she could come up with was herself. She started tearing up again, saying, "I can't believe somebody could have that much hate within them." Cat said she didn't hate Michaele, but she didn't believe the tears either. "She fakes everything," she told Cohen. To Read More Click Here .
Just in time for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to shine this fall on Thursdays, the D.C. branch of Bravoâs addictive franchise is about to close shop on their inaugural season with what everyone has been dying to see: the events leading to and after the White House Gatecrashing incident, which involved this yearâs incarnation of Heidi and Spencer, Michaele and Tareq Salahi.
