While all of the Real Housewives of D.C. were celebrating their Bravo premiere last Thursday, Michaele Salahi once again found herself amongst scandal. According to the New York Post, “White House gatecrashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi were served with court papers for a $15,000 debt while they partied away at a nightclub last week”.
The PR firm, Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, are asking the Salahis to appear in court over unpaid dues for promoting their America’s Polo Cup charity event in 2008.
I wonder if this is any sign for how the ratings are going to be for the rest of the Real Housewives of D.C. season – a hot mess.

Bravo has announced that the Real Housewives of D.C will premiere on the network August 5th at 9 PM. The cast will include Catherine Ommanney, Lynda Erkiletian (founder of T.H.E Artist Agency, or as Bravo puts it, “one of the top modeling agents in D.C.” — Bravo, how many model agencies do you think we actually have?), Mary Schmidt Amons, Michaele Salahi (yes, part of the White House crasher duo), and Stacie Scott Turner.
Although I have no idea if this Real Housewives franchise will be as popular as NYC or NJ, I definitely will be tuning in. I welcome any opportunity to support the city I love and watch mind-numbing TV all at the same time.

Carol Joynt of the New York Social Dairy thinks that she may know who the “Real” Housewives of DC will be. Based on her inside knowledge, she has a list of five socialites that are likely to be on Bravo’s upcoming reality show. The ladies in question are: Mia Abdo, supposedly one of DC’s best dressed; Mary Amons, founder of “District Sample Sale”; Lynda Erkiletain, owner of DC’s top modeling agency (we have modeling agencies?); Michaela Salahi, a former model and wife of a wealthy vintner; and Lisa Spies, wife of Republican fundraiser Charlie Spies. That fact that I’ve only heard of one of these women is a badge that I wear with honor. Hopefully, reality TV will leave us alone sooner rather than later.
