The Real Housewives of DC
It’s a wrap… officially.

Two weeks after RadarOnline first broke the news, Bravo has now confirmed the Real Housewives of DC has been canceled, making this the first time ever the network has canceled a housewives franchise.

“We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise,” Bravo’s Andy Cohen told the Washington Post on Thursday. “I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity.”

Below are some reactions from the DC Housewives -

Stacie Turner – “The past 18 months has truly been an amazing adventure! Thanks so much for your support. The best is yet to come…….” she tweeted.

Mary Amons – “Bittersweet day, memorable fun ride w/ @catommanney @THErealLyndaDC @stacieturnerdc & the Bravo family! Exciting projects ahead! #staytuned,” tweeted Mary.

Lynda Erkiletian – “we are too dignified ! LOL ..its not a bad thing! Xo L,” she tweeted.

Cat Ommaney – “So the milk was spilt,and we cried over it..(meow meow) and then the next show..mmm well thats going to be ‘creme de la creme’!!..” tweeted Cat.

As for Michaele Salahi, she promises her next project will be “wild and entertaining,” perhaps referring to her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Rehab.

While the DC Housewives averaged decent ratings, 1.4 million viewers, it didn’t quite compare to its counterparts, for example the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which averaged over 2 million viewers for its freshman season. It seems the final straw for Bravo was the report that the DC Housewives had banded together and refused to do the show if the controversial Michaele was allowed back on by the network which wanted her to return.

Michaele also spoke to PEOPLE, confirming that her castmates did indeed want her off the show. “I sort of knew this was going to happen,” Michaele tells PEOPLE. “The other women didn’t want me back on the show, and [Bravo executive] Andy [Cohen] stood his ground and said there wouldn’t be a show without me on it. I’m grateful to him for that.”

This cancellation of the DC housewives could also spell trouble for the Real Housewives of Miami, which averaged a poor 1.1 million viewers this season.
