Bravo lines up ‘Housewives of D.C.’

Michaele Salahi to star in Beltway-set skein

Bravo can’t get enough if its “Housewives.”

NBC Universal cabler has set Aug. 5 for preem of newest entry in the franchise, “The Real Housewives of D.C.”

Among the five women to star is Michaele Salahi, who became the focus of media attention following the White House state dinner she and her husband crashed last November.

“The Real Housewives of D.C.” went into production shortly after the election and inauguration of President Obama.

“We wanted to dive into the Beltway subculture as it underwent an historic shift, one that previously has not been readily accessible or portrayed, and look at the political hierarchy and definitive social circles that make up D.C.’s unique society,” said Andy Cohen, senior VP of original programming and development for Bravo. “We knew this was going to expose a different social narrative from any of our other ‘Housewives’ series.”
