Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Bravo’s The Real Housewives franchise presents a slice of life amongst affluent, educated women, some raising kids, some driving careers, all interacting with friends and family as determined by the unwritten social rules of the Beltway. With the franchise’s expansion to our nation’s capital, The Real Housewives of D.C. introduces five intriguing women whose relationships with each other, and with the city in which they live, are a compelling combination to explore the nexus of politics, society, and even race, as well as how the proximity to political power dictates where one fits within Beltway society. These connected D.C. power players all have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society. They are: Mary Schmidt Amons, the true Washingtonian and granddaughter of radio and TV personality Arthur Godfrey; the mother hen and owner of D.C.’s top modeling agency, Lynda Erkiletian; feisty Brit Catherine Ommanney, married to a White House photographer; model and founder of D.C.’s America’s Polo Cup, Michaele Salahi who became the focus of media attention following the White House state dinner last November; and Harvard grad, active political fund-raiser, and philanthropist Stacie Scott Turner. Bringing viewers inside the lives and homes of movers and shakers in the community, the D.C. housewives move comfortably from fundraisers and prominent events to discussing everything from issues about race to money and politics to relationships and high fashion.

Giving the Salahis enough rope to hang themselves
I was appalled by the Salahis crashing of the White House dinner, and when I learned that Bravo TV was filming it - I was even more disgusted . I live and work in DC and have been quite familiar with the nasty habits of this couple for a long time. I had hoped that Bravo would do the right thing and drop them from the DC Housewives roster - but, unfortunately, bad behavior is so rewarding in the 21st century...
HOWEVER! After watching the first episode, I'm beginning to think there may be method in Bravo's madness. It appears that Michaele and Tareq might be exposed for the climbers, liars and users that they are. Has Bravo given them enough rope to hang themselves? My spirits are cautiously rising...
Normally a fan but...
I won't purchase and promote this series because of the Salahi's and that the show supports them clawing their way into popularity. It's not great tv, it's just pathetic.
I have watched The Real Housewives franchise since the beginning and I can't wait for D.C. Keep adding to it Bravo and think about doing one in Charlotte,N.C. or Miami!
