“Housewives” to Start August 5

The Real Housewives are finally for real

Given the lengthy delays that preceded Bravo's confirmation today that the Real Housewives of DC was official and will begin airing on August 5, I think I could be forgiven for wondering if the show was ever actually going to air. There are no real surprises in the announcement: everyone knew that Michaele Salahi, Mary Schmidt Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Stacie Scott Turner were the wives in question. One thing I do think is interesting, though, is that the Salahis' infamous crash comes towards the end of the first season's events. Given that Andy Cohen, Bravo's senior vice president for original programming and development told the Post that the show is intended to ""dive into the Beltway subculture as it underwent an historic shift," I'm wondering if the show will feel more like a documentary of the social scene in the early days of the Obama administration, than a reflection of the city fully into the second year of the new presidency.
