Video: DC Housewives Private Party, Salahi a No Show

Following a week of very public combative exchanges between Michaele Salahi and the media and Michaele Salahi and the rest of the girls.. the alleged White House party crasher decided not to attend Bravo’s official premiere party for the Housewives of DC. Michaele and hubby Tareq held their own premiere at a DC club downtown.  Read Full Story here…  Watch my report from the party including an interview with Mary Amons who admits there’s rising tension between the ladies.

 

We caught up with the rest of the gang… Lynda.. who told me after Tareq threw wine on her last week at a press junket she thought it would be only appropriate to remain a target by wearing Target. Cat looked striking in black… and told me she wears mostly vintage consigment dresses. Stacie sparkled like a gem and raved about how she longs to meet 9NEWS legend J.C. Hayward (who was on the guest list).  And my personal friend Mary.. as always was a perfect 10 and +1 for great personality.  Tune in to the WUSA Morning Show Friday.. I go one on one with Mary who reminds this is a show about 5 women not ‘one couple’.

Defending the Housewives of DC (Video)

I’ve never seen one episode of any of Bravo’s Housewives shows… but I plan to tune in for the Housewives of DC. I’m amazed at how much backlash the gals/show is getting before it even airs. Come on people this is entertainment. You know what the Housewives franchise is all about.. so there’s no need to act surprised. In all reality it’s kinda neat we’ll get to see some familar faces and places on the small screen. For those who say these ladies are far from ‘Real’ … C’mon. Gimme a break. They’re real people who really live in the metro area (how many of you Virginians out there say ‘DC’ when outsiders ask you where you’re from?!?). I found out they also have human kids too. All of this hype and hate has me mumbling a phrase I’ve used often in the newsroom over the years: ‘It’s just TV’

Watch Housewives of DC Trailer Below. Show airs Aug 5th 9pm on Bravo
