Bravo cancels 'Real Housewives of D.C.'

Dc The day has finally come: Bravo has (gasp!) canceled one of its “Real Housewives” series.  The ladies of Washington, D.C. have gotten the boot. 

It was the branch of the “Housewives” franchise that was supposed to diversify the brand, Andy Cohen, Bravo’s executive vice president of original programming, told us back in October: "D.C. is not a place where people are going to town on each other. It has a different personality. We knew that when we went there. This is a smart show ... it's got a great place in our galaxy of 'Housewives.' We want people to feel like they're watching a 'Housewives' show, but we want each to be different. This one is just more quiet than the others … and that's not necessarily a bad thing."

Oh, but it was a bad thing. The “D.C” cancellation marks the first time an iteration in the franchise, which got its start back in 2006, has not continued on for a second season. 

No reason was given for the cancellation. The series had a respectable first season, averaging about 1.4 million viewers. 

In an interview with the Washington Post, Cohen would only offer this: “We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our D.C. wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity.”

In fact, Cat is booked to appear on Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live Royal Wedding Spectacular” on April 28.

With one down, that leaves the Bravo franchise with representation in Atlanta, Orange County, New Jersey, New York City, Beverly Hills and Miami.

They need to cancel Miami

It's not going to make any difference. Bravo's programming has been getting trashier for the last couple of years. instead of "Bravo" they should call the station "Boo."

Do the world a favor and cancel all of these stupid shows.

Well, I probably wouldn't have watched it if it did come back anyway! Love the RHO, but seriously this was the worst one! The Salahi's ruined that whole season and the other women were just so boring! Next would be Miami, ugh! These women are not only not very attractive to watch, but seriously lacking in any worthwhile entertaining drama! LOL

I'm really surprised that The DC Housewives has been canceled. I missed it when it was on, but was able to see the repeats through to the end. I read about them in the Washington Post and was able to catch up on everything. We need to have our Housewives represented here in this area. You could try Maryland or Virginia. There are some very, very rich Housewives in those areas and it's still considered the DC area!!! Please, Please bring back DC Housewives. Even if it's not the same bunch of women before, there are many different types of people in this area.

Thanks!

I've seen a total of about 10 minutes of the housewives shows and I was shocked. They are for the most part of bunch of narcissistic and/or borderline personalities whose horrible behavior is enabled and encouraged. They should all be canceled.

bring back DC, cancel Miami---Miami is unwatchable!

All I can say is, WHO CARES?!

Oh. Dear. How will we ever go on without witnessing more catfights and White House party crashers?
The answer: Just fine.

If you ever need proof that money does NOT equal intelligence, class, or taste just watch one of these shows.

thank god!

cancel all these lame reality shows.

I hope this is the beginning of the end of these horrible house harpies shows. C'mon, Andy (Cohen) and Lauren (Zalaznick, chairman of Bravo), show some leadership and taste for a change.

'm bummed. I liked the real housewives of DC, not my fave, but still liked them. The only housewives series I couldnt get into was Miami so I can see why that would get cancelled (hopefully), but I was truly looking forward to seeing what was going to happen next with the white house crashers (even though I didnt care for them, they were still interesting to watch) and I LOVE Cat, Mary & Stacy! Oh well, looking forward to watching New York until my FAVORITE FAVORITE Housewives New Jersey comes back!

Glad to see them go, could they take Atlanta and Miami with them? BORING! Love NYC, NJ, Beverly Hills and Orange County!

C'mon, guys, just give Michelle her own show! I've even got a name for it, "Ms. Dowdy of D.C."...

the miami show is a HOOT! after seeing elsa (marysol's mom) i can see where marysol get her looks.

That's an insult to people with narcissistic/borderline personality disorder.

Really Pamela? You "need to need to have our Housewives represented here in this area." And why is that Pamela? What happens in the cities across the US where housewives are not being televised? Are they taken away or killed? What great need is there in DC to televise women buying groceries or getting a facial? "You could try Maryland or Virginia. There are some very, very rich Housewives in those areas and it's still considered the DC area!!!" Really? very very rich ones? and still in DC? You are right, the world must know about them and for the good of DC I hope webcams are installed in their homes soon.

The D.C. ladies were my favorite. Why didn't they cancel the ghetto Atlanta or Jersey housewives? Bummer.
