Watch out, Michelle Obama: The "Real Housewives" are coming to D.C.
Bravo Tuesday confirmed months of rumors by announcing a series order for "The Real Housewives of D.C.," the newest addition to the cable powerhouse's fast-growing unscripted franchise. In addition, Bravo has greenlit a second season of "Real Housewives of New Jersey," which is the top-rated "RH" series to date in all key demos.
Here's how Bravo's press release describes the D.C. edition:
"The Real Housewives of D.C.," the most recent addition to Bravo's hit franchise, is set in the influential metropolitan region of Washington, D.C. A place for power and politics, Bravo scouted the D.C. area to identify the city's alluring and discriminating residents, the women who have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings and fundraisers in Washington society. The season will bring viewers inside the lives and homes of movers and shakers in the community, all connected in different ways to the political arena. The D.C. wives, cast to be determined, will move comfortably from fundraisers to discussing everything from the economy to high fashion.
"RH:DC" (from Half Yard Prods.) and "RH: NJ" (from Sirens Media) will both premiere next year.
