According to Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development aka Andy Cohen, the Real Housewives of Miami is the end of additional cities to the successful reality series.
When asked about which city he would look to next to find more housewives by OK! magazine, Andy replied, “I really feel like we’re done.” When further pressed on if Miami is the last stop on the Housewives spinoffs? Andy answered, “Yeah.”
And when it comes to other housewives getting their own Bravo spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel, Andy reveals that is very unlikely. “I think they’re all good where they are,” he stated.
This comes as no surprise following the lackluster ratings and reviews of the Miami franchise. The show has averaged a dismal 1.18 million viewers over the first 3 episodes.
While ending the addition of new franchises might be best, we are a little disappointed we will never get to see a Real Housewives of Dallas. That would have been all kinds of awesomeness no?
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANDY’S COMMENTS? ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THIS DECISION? WHAT HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?
Yes, sources connected to the show confirm to TMZ that the Salahis, stars of the Real Housewives of DC, alongside some others have signed on for Celebrity Rehab season 5.
Other “celebs” joining the Salahis? Michael Lohan – daddy to troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, Bai Ling – Z list actress, Jeremy Jackson – former Baywatch actor, and Dwight “Doc” Gooden – former pitcher for the NY Mets.
A new report by TMZ also reveals that Lindsay Lohan is livid that her embarrassment of a father has signed up to do the show.
Lindsay was reportedly “shocked and upset” to hear the news, telling friends she’s worried he’ll embarrass the family. Sources add that Lindsay is most upset that her dad, Michael, began taping the show without giving her a heads up. She is also adamant she will NEVER make an appearance on the show.
As for the Salahis, no word yet on their supposed addiction. Michaele did reveal a while back that she had multiple sclerosis, so feel free to try to determine which drug or alcohol goes best with the BS MS.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SALAHIS DOING CELEBRITY REHAB? DO YOU CALL BS?
UPDATE: VH1 has confirmed the cast today and Tareq will not be a part of the show though Michaele will be. Below is part of the official press release -
“This season will follow Michael Lohan (celebrity dad), Michaele Salahi (The Real Housewives of DC), Amy Fisher (“Long Island Lolita”), Bai Ling (The Crow) and Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch) on their quest for sobriety. Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is slated to premiere early summer on VH1.”
While Michaele is the one actually doing the rehab, it is safe to assume Tareq will crash the show at some point during the season to help support his wife‘s fame addiction.
Following their well earned and rightfully deserved label as the world’s most famous party crashers, one would think Tareqand Michaele Salahi would be keeping a low profile but it seems the infamous white house party crashers feel differently.
According to a report by TMZ, the Real Housewives of DC stars were able to crash finagle their way into the owners’ suite at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium on Sunday for the Superbowl. “We were guests and stayed in the Owners Club Suites the entire time and had so much fun meeting new friends,” said Michaele to TMZ.
The TMZ article went on to ask, “How do they do it?”
Well a day after the TMZ report, a new report by RadarOnline answers that question by revealing the Salahis once again crashed the event. It gets even better as Radar was able to get a quote from a higher up for the Cowboys Stadium, confirming the Salahis were escorted out by security once it was discovered they were NFI (Not F*cking Invited)!
“Not invited and were immediately, but discreetly, escorted out of the suite by security,” Brett Daniels, Director of Client Services for the Dallas Cowboys, told RadarOnline.
Ouch! Oddly enough, Michaele made the following tweet on Sunday — “Super Bowl XLV rocks. Owners suite, with Jerry Jr and friends,” along with a photo of her and husband Tareq with Jerry Jones Jr., the son of Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones. That photo is below -

After going 42 years without knowing her biological father, that finally changed for Stacie Turner as she reunited with her birth father just days ago in Nigeria. Her dad is to the left of her in the above photo.
The Real Housewives of DC star had her difficult quest to find her biological dad chronicled on the Bravo hit show. During the 1st season, Stacie, who was adopted early on in her life, discovered from her biological mom that her father was Nigerian. And though Stacie’s birth mom refused to reveal the identity of her father, she did hand her a photo of him. Stacie’s husbandJason Turner took that photo to the embassy and began to get leads on her father’s identity.
Fast forward to Jan. 10 when Stacie arrived in Nigeria for what she called a 2 day medical mission and most importantly, reuniting with her birth father Nze Augustine Onyema and her 10 siblings.
“Yes! just landed in Owerri Nigeria. We are guests of the Governor–doing a 2 day medical mission–then mtg my family,” Stacie tweeted Jan. 12.
According to Nigerian paper the Daily Sun, Stacie and her father were in tears when they finally saw and hugged each other. “An unbelievable reunion with my Papa in my village of Amaocha Afara, 1 of the 9 villages in Mbaitoli,” she later tweeted on Jan. 15 with the above photo.
Stacie also seems to be enjoying her time in Nigeria as she tweeted today, “I absolutely love this country and feel right at home.”
Stacie revealed that the “entire experience is being documented on film” with one of the photos she tweeted showing what looks to be a professional camcorder. And according to reports, Stacie arrived in Nigeria with hubby Jason and a big entourage.
All signs point to this monumental event in Stacie’s life being filmed by Bravo, more than likely for a season 2 of the Real Housewives of DC.
More photos of Stacie in Nigeria as tweeted by her below -
UPDATE – Stacie’s husband Jason Turner posted a comment below, revealing that both he and Stacie has a wonderful experience in Nigeria. Jason also reveals that while the Nigerian visit was documented on film, it wasn’t for the Real Housewives of DC. You can read the full comment in its entirety below.
While is it now common knowledge that Cat had a steamy make out session with Prince Harry while she was still living in the UK, and we know of this because Cat sold the story to a UK tabloid, RadarOnline is now revealing the juicy details of Cat’s tryst with the Prince. The source of the story is Cat’s former nanny who also accuses Cat of being an absentee mom to her daughters and making racial slurs.
The nanny Monica Herrero states that the 2006 make out session between Cat, 39, and Prince Harry, 26, was way more than just a kiss, as she claims the two actually enjoyed a series of steamy rendezvous. Monica says she babysat Cat’s two daughters while she romped around with the the Prince who is 13 years her junior.
“Although she was my boss, when she was really happy she would share things with me, like what happened with Prince Harry,” Monica tells Radar in an exclusive interview. “She would show me messages that he sent her, and she said that he wanted to take her hand and travel around the world.”
Monica reveals she was 20-years-old when she acted as a nanny for Cat and her two daughters, Ruby and Jade, in 2007, while they lived in the UK. “While I was living with Catherine a car with a chauffeur came for her twice,” said Monica. “Her daughters would tell me, ‘This is the car that Prince Harry sends for mummy.'”
Monica also reveals that though Catherine was divorced and had a boyfriend at the time, she would constantly flirt and make out with other men. “Catherine told me that one time that she kissed Prince Harry in a bathroom,” Monica said. “She told me she met him because she was doing interior design for him, even though I never saw her doing any work.”
And in a separate interview with RadarOnline, Monica reveals that Cat was an absent mother who made racial slurs. “I worked seven days a week because Cathy slept in the mornings and went out partying in the nights,” Monica states. “She had a very disorganized life, like a teenager. I felt like a mum and that Cathy was my daughter.”
According to Monica, Cat was more concerned about traveling the world and was very cold to her daughters. “Sometimes the girls wouldn’t see their mother for a whole week and they live in the same house!” Monica said.
And finally, Monica claims she witnessed Cat make some racial slurs. “While we were shopping she often spoke about the big a**es of black people and spoke bad about the black and Asian people,” said Monica.
Catherine is however denying Monica’s claims, stating her tryst with Prince Harry was only for a night of making out (the same thing she told the UK tabloid). As for the other serious allegations, Cat stated – “The recent allegations by an old au pair are all lies. I fired Monica Herrero because she was totally untrustworthy and irresponsible. She completely trashed our house when the girls and I were away for the weekend and ran up a $800 phone bill!”
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE MONICA’S CLAIMS ABOUT CAT?
Well well well, the Salahis have been caught in yet another lie. What else is new?
RadarOnline is confirming today what we all suspected while watching the Real Housewives of DC reunion, which is that the Salahis did not own the home they used for their Bravo audition tape, despite claiming they owned the home on the show.
Michaele Salahi even went as far as to claim she and her partner-in-crime Tareq Salahi sold the home, though none of their fellow castmates believed them.
According to RadarOnline, the Virginia mansion actually belongs to Stuart and Daphne Himelfarb, who were also shown dining with the Salahis in a recent episode of the show.
Though a shocked Daphne Himelfarb did not want to comment on the story to RadarOnline, the site does report that the Himelfarbs have owned the home since 2000.
In other Salahi news, the gruesome couple has now hired popular celebrity booking agent Mike Esterman, as the duo hopes to capitalize on their infamy by appearing at parties and events for a fee.
“The interest is there and whether people love or hate them, they’re still very notable,” Esterman said. Early estimates have the couple earning anywhere from $10,000-$15,000 per event.
Salahism – (n) 1. a condition of, or pertaining to total self-centeredness; 2. A mental state; characterized by absolute pre-occupation with oneself and/or self-interests. See also: narcissism.
With that out of the way, the Real Housewives of DCreunion part 2 starts out with the worse half of the gruesome twosome coming on to the stage.
Tareq immediately takes on his victim plight, stating that he is disappointed in the others for not believing Michaele’s BS MS tale. Lynda makes a valid point when she wants to know why it took a book for them to release the information. Better yet, I want to know how Michaele filmed a reality show for months without a mention of this illness or any indication she had this illness.
