The DC Housewives are beginning to show their true colors – and it’s not pretty.
It only took a few episodes to figure out who were the mean girls in the Bravo reality television show, Real Housewives of DC. It’s hard to believe there can be girls meaner than the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Several of the mean housewives began to turn on Michaela Salahi. But the well-bred women may not have realized they came off as the ugly, jealous, (and at least one of them fat) stepsisters while Michaela’s kind spirit simply radiates.
Last week, Lynda Erkiletian, who owns a modeling agency in D.C. yet is far from being in model-shape herself in my opinion, talked about Michaela behind her back under the guise of being concerned that Michaela may be anorexic.
Not surprising, Michaela’s husband, Tareq, felt compelled this week to defend his wife concerning the anorexia allegations-noting how Michaela sometimes eats more than he does and actually gained weight after marrying him.
Lynda, who is herself divorced, made a snotty comment (to the cameras) about how Michaela and Tareq should divorce. Lynda evidently does not recognize a loving, supporting husband when she sees one.
Oh, there should be a lot of drama with these Ladies on the Hill. As a native Marylander, I can attest to the fact that the girls don’t get any meaner than the socialites of the Maryland/Virginia/D.C. area.
The Real Housewives of DC will follow what really happened with the now infamous White House Party Crasher scandal in the middle of which the Salahis founds themselves.
But now that we, the viewers, have met Michaela we know she had no malevolent intentions by wanting to attend the event at the White House. She can’t help but remind me of Cinderella – beautiful at a ball, perhaps a little absentminded enough to drop a slipper, and in love with her Prince Charming.
In other The Real Housewives of DC news this week, we found out that Catherine Ommanney or “Cat” is not really racist, sexist or anything like that. She just has trouble with knowing how to think before speaking and doesn’t tend to censor the words spoken in a British accent that spew from her mouth. She’s not completely unlikable. There’s potential there for us to grow to like her.
The Real Housewives Stacie Scott Turner is also likable. She traveled to Paris with her husband, Jason and the Salahis to see Jason’s brother-a top musician in France-perform hip-hop music in a concert. It’s not that she doesn’t have a catty or judgmental side, but she has a good heart – and that’s definitely rare on this reality television show!
Finally, we learn a little more about Mary Schmidt Amons but none of it is brings any more love and light into our lives.
DC Real Housewife Mary is probably my least favorite “character.” She is a classic mean girl – and joins Lynda in the obvious role of the jealous stepsister figuratively backstabbing Michaela. I’m just wondering how long before they ask Michaela to sweep their floors, do their dishes and oh yeah, fetch that bottle of red – because they do make a good bottle of red.
