The Real Housewives Franchise is Coming Back to DC

Rejoice, everyone: Bravo hasn’t given up on Washington. Five years after Real Housewives of DC turned out to be a one-season bust of poor ratings and cast-member disputes, the network’s reality franchise is returning to the Washington area for round two with The Real Housewives of Potomac.

Bravo dropped a trailer for the show—which premieres January 17—on its website yesterday afternoon, and it’s every bit as ridiculous as you’d expect. So far, we know the series will follow around six women, including model and TV personality Katie Rost, former Miss District of Columbia Ashley Darby, and Karen Huger, who seems to be known as the “Great Dame of Potomac.”

Watch the trailer below and start praying for Dan Snyder and Wolf Blitzer (both Potomac residents) to make cameos as wacky neighbors.
