Rumors are swirling that the much maligned Real Housewives of DC has been cancelled by Bravo. The series underperformed ratings-wise, and many view it as the weakest of all the Housewives installments (although, I still contend that it wasn’t that bad, and the reunion was rather epic). A source close to the action told Radaronline.com that “The show just didn’t do well and it wasn’t worth airing another season… The D.C. housewives were meant to be starting shooting their second season now and they haven’t heard a peep from Bravo… No one from the cast has been contacted yet and told that the show is cancelled.”
Bravo has stated that no decision has been made, but as rumors go, this one isn’t too hard to believe. I always suspected the only reason the series made it to air was because Bravo just happened to have been documenting the Salahis during their infamous White House party-crashing. Still, while the show lacked the tackiness and feuds of every other city, there was plenty of non-Salahi-related silliness to keep up entertained. Lest we forget Cat and her propensity for uncomfortable encounters or Stacie and her love for Tyra Banks. And how about all those strange names: LOLLY? EBONG?? INBOX FULL???? I’m not saying D.C. was wonderful, but it certainly has a lot more going for it than Miami.
Don’t count the ladies out just yet, Andy Cohen. Give them one more shot!
(After all, if you’re going to bring back crap like Million Dollar Listing every year, why not roll the dice on these women?)
