“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 –
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.
