" The Real Housewives of D.C. " is not over just yet. Despite claim that the show did not do well, Bravo has not canceled it as reported by Radar Online. A representative for the network says to Access Hollywood that "no decision has been made yet" regarding the future of the reality series. The denial is released by the rep following Radar's report that Bravo will not renew "Real Housewives of D.C." after one low-rated season. "The show just didn't do well and it wasn't worth airing another season," a source close to the situation tells the site . Read More.... http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00039255.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. The film, which was called "Fast Flash To Bang Time", was to have starred John Travolta, but the film suffered due to conflicting demands between Sonja's camp and Travolta's. In the end, Hannibal Pictures, the company who was involved in the business venture with Sonja, filed and won a lawsuit against Sonja for $7 million dollars. Ouch. To Read More Click Here.
Part 1 of 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Reunion (Thu., 9PM ET on BRAVO) was definitely more composed than the 'Jersey' edition, when Teresa Guidice forcefully shoved host Andy Cohen during an altercation with Danielle Staub. 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 .
"Only five?!" you say? True, the whole show is one big awkward moment, but I had to choose the best five from this week's episode, and I'm not even including the moment when I realized less than 100 people probably watch this show ever. 5. Erika's son asks "who's the oldest mommy?" and the Housewives make them guess. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
Bravoâs message to the Salahis: Stop Lying On Us! Or Elseâ¦ Uh Oh. The Salahisâ might have ticked off the wrong person, and that wrong person happens to be the hand cutting the checks for their services on The Real Housewives of D.C. Yesterday, we reported on the release of a new book by Diane Dimond named âCirque du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trustâ, which claimed that the Salahisâ hasnât said a peep about the infamous (and kinda played out) White House âGate Crashingâ debacle due to âiron-cladâ contracts set in by Bravo, forcing the Salahisâ into remaining mum about the incident.

everal weeks before crashing a White House state dinner, Michaele and Tareq Salahi sneaked into the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Awards Dinner. Jason Backe, who was also involved, had the details on 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' (Thu., 9PM ET on BRAVO). The Salahis invited him, but Backe noticed their ticket said "Admits One." No matter. The group somehow got through security. From there, the Salahis advised a strategy for scoping out the empty seats. "All of a sudden, five or six secret-service guys come over and tap them on the shoulder," said Backe. They were escorted out. But when Backe told the story again later, he admitted "nobody had tickets" and that they "saw a busboy coming out from a side door, and we snuck in the side door." His friends were appalled at hearing the news: "It's just rude. It's just disrespectful, especially to the African American community." Source & Video
Some people say that reality television melts your brain, that it can't be an educational experience. I disagree! This week I learned DC social etiquette, as well as a few things DC and The Real Housewives of DC are and are not. Without further ado, here are ten lessons I learned from just one episode. 1. Cat is "so not" Sex and the City and shopping bags. She is a leopard trench and Louis Vuitton bags coming up an escalator. Figure it out, book people! 2. Wine has legs. And other things I didn't know about. I will rely on Tareq for all my wine information from now on because he has worked very hard to make sure everyone knows he's the wine guy. 3. If you invite Michaele and Tareq to Paris on a whim, expect them to go, but if they host a party they are not legally obligated to pay for any of it. These are the rules, as confusing as they are. 4. DC is not "splashy." Tareq is not fitting in with his attention-hogging champagne-lancing ways. To Read More Click Here .
Before the premiere of the "The Real Housewives of D.C.," the cast and network went out of their way to stress that the show isn't all about the Salahis. But after watching the first episode, it's clear that the alleged gatecrashers make it very hard to ignore them. It was also clear that a feud is developing between the couple and cast mate, Lynda Erkiletian. She accused them of throwing a polo game for charity in which they didn't pay their vendors. Then, she voiced (and it seemed told anyone who'd listen) her opinion that Michaele Salahi is anorexic. Source & Preview
It's only been the inaugural episode of 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' (Thu., 9PM on BRAVO) and things have already gotten a little snippy. Like these small seeds of discontent that British Cat has started to sow in Stacie. In this episode, Stacie proudly introduced the gang to Cheo, Janet Jackson's personal chef, who has also catered to Tyra Banks. "Poor you," Cat responded upon hearing the name of the model-turned-actress-turned talk show host and media mogul. "Did you say 'poor you?'" pounced Stacie. "You don't like Tyra?" "Hideous," Cat proclaimed. And then she did a Tyra impersonation, replete with flailing arms and a "You ain't got it going on, baby" thrown in for good measure, and effectively ground all conversation to a halt. "The whole room got a little awkward," Mary confessed. Stacie's offense wasn't helped when Cat said she didn't appreciate when President Obama didn't show up to a function. "Cat started bashing Obama and Tyra Banks, and they all happened to be black," she said. "It was just a little bit off-putting. ... She's just very brash and I find that borderline rude."

Earlier we showed you a clip with 'The View' host Whoopi Goldberg defending herself against accusations that she hit 'Real Housewives of D.C.' star Michaele Salahi. Now comes yet another appearance on daytime TV by Salahi and the rest of the 'D.C. Housewives' cast, 'Today' (weekdays at 7AM ET on NBC). They talked about Whoopi and more. It looks like none of the other cast members even like Salahi. In fact, they tell Kathie Lee and Hoda that they were never friends. 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' premieres tonight at 10PM ET on Bravo. You think all of this is publicity for the show? Don't be so cynical. Source & Video
