It’s Officiall!! Bravo Pulls The Plug on ‘Real Housewives of D.C’
Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 7, 2011
Well it has been finally made official Real Housewives lovers.. The Washington Post has exclusive information on how exactly the cast was informed of the decision to can the franchise.
Ta-ta self-edit-gene-lacking Cat Ommanney!
Bye-bye, modeling agency matron Lynda Erkiletian!
So long, mom-of-five/Arthur Godfrey granddaughter Mary Amons!
See you ‘round, real estate agent Stacie Turner!
And, we think we’ll miss you most of all Michaele Salahi!
“The Real Housewives of D.C.” has been cancelled.
Though Cat confidently told The Post in late February that the
deafening silence since the show’s October 2010 finale, “has made people think there won’t be one, but I’m quite confident that there will be a second season,” the fat lady sang for the show on Thursday afternoon.
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.
GOOD BYE SALAHI’S!!!!! I hope its forever.. please..
