Charles Ommanney

Following their first season on Bravo, the Real Housewives of DC have all but managed to stay out of the press but that is now changing thanks to the former nanny of Catherine Ommanney.

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?


According to Bravo’s schedule, there will be no new episode of the Real Housewives of DC airing tonight, there is however news to report on the show.

The NYTimes published a story this week about Charles Ommanney, now estranged husband of Cat Ommanney. Charles, a White House photographer who has been featured on the show this season, apparently regrets doing the reality show.

In the piece by the NYTimes, Charles, who is described as a private guy, expresses his regret in appearing on the show which he says has now overshadowed his previous accomplishments, refers to Cat as his ex-wife, and says he doesn’t watch the show because watching his old life play out on television is simply “too painful.”

“I haven’t seen it, but I’ve seen the previews and I made a promise to myself to not sit and watch my ex-wife,” said Charles who is described as sounding miserable. “It’s just too painful. I’ve got eight more weeks of hundreds of Facebook requests from people I don’t know. I’d almost like to go and live in Katmandu. I have very few regrets in my life, but this is the one.”

Cat is described as a summer fling of Charles’s from 1989 who got back in touch with him in 2008 after two children and an infamous kiss with Prince Harry, a story she reportedly sold to the UK tabloids. The two have two marriages between them.

After five months of dating, Catherine followed Charles to Washington DC with her two children in tow. About a year later, Cat began filming for the Bravo reality show while Charles had become a father to her girls.

The NYTimes reports the two separated shortly after the show taping wrapped up in November, following less than 2 years of marriage. Cat’s book is reportedly on hold as she plans on moving from London back to Washington in the coming week. Cat’s children will remain in England due to the custody agreement Cat has with their father.

As for Charles, he reportedly fled the city. “Primarily I was embarrassed,” he told the mag. “Secondly, people didn’t want anything to do with it. People were like: ‘Are there going to be cameras there? I don’t want dinner. Are there people from Bravo filming it? Are you miked?’ ”

Charles adds that he ultimately did the show to make his wife happy. “But, at the end of the day, it was innocent. I wanted happiness for someone I was in love with. I put all my reservations aside and said: ‘Go for it. Do it if it makes you happy.’ Then I regretted it. I lost touch with everyone, and mix that with my marriage falling apart and the show taking over, it was very sad.”

Cat, who is shown as being very rude and obnoxious on the show, showed her human side, when she told the mag, “Every time I see Charles, especially last week, when he comes and surprises me on a photo shoot, and the look of love for him I have, and the admiration I had and in some way still have — it’s painful.”

Cat also shares she is doing some soul searching after watching her portrayal on television. “The fact that I am set up to be the villain, I could probably have lived with if I was still in my life with my husband and family,” she said. “But having all that gone has been incredibly challenging, and I’ve had to do a lot of soul searching about how we’ve got to this point.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHARLES AND CAT’S STORY? WERE YOU A BIT TOUCHED BY THIS STORY AS I WAS? WOULD YOU EVER CONSIDER DOING A REALITY SHOW?

Though the all new franchise of the Real Housewives of D.C. doesn’t premiere until August 5th, Bravo has released a sneak peek video giving us a taste of what is to come!

As we previously reported, the infamous White House party crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi will be a focal part of the show. The preview video also shows the Salahis as they prepare to crash attend the White House dinner.

Bravo has described the D.C. ladies as “connected D.C. power players,” who “have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society.”

And if you think Michaele is the only scandalous character on the show, you are surely mistaken. Introducing you to Catherine Ashley Ommanney (pictured far left), the mother of two sold a story to the British tabloids back in 2006 during which she claimed to have made out with a then 22-year-old Prince Harry. Catherine told the tabloids she was 34 at the time (2006) but multiple media outlets have her listed as being in her forties today.

It has also been reported Catherine and her husband Charles Ommanney have separated since the show stopped filming. Apparently doing the reality show put a strain on their marriage.

The Real Housewives of DC

The Real Housewives of D.C., set to premiere August 5th, has already proven to be Bravo’s most controversial housewives franchise, though an episode has yet to air.

Bravo officially announced the cast of the DC housewives this week, and white house party crasher Michaele Salahi is part of the cast, but this isn’t exactly a shocker considering the DailyBeast revealed months ago that Michaele would indeed be on the show.

Joining Michaele on the reality show, from left to right (pictured above), are Catherine Ommanney, Stacie Turner, Mary Amons, and Lynda Erkiletian.

Bravo describes the DC ladies as “connected D.C. power players,” who “have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society.”

And as for the controversial decision to put Michaele Salahi on the show? Andy Cohen had the following to say -

“We kept Michaele in the show because she has a compelling life story, distinct relationships with the other women, and most especially because she represents a very real example of the inextricably intertwined worlds of political connections with social hierarchy. To the people who might excoriate us and say we’re making Michaele famous or glorifying what she did: ‘here’s what’ — we don’t make shows to make people famous and as a corollary, we don’t view being on a television show either as a reward or a punishment. That’s up to the individuals who choose to do so and the people who choose to watch and react.”

Michaele and her husband Tareq Salahi were never charged or prosecuted by the white house though presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers did lose her job as a result of the incident.

Raised in Oakton, Michaele worked at Nordstrom before marrying Tareq in a splashy 2003 ceremony. Though she turned up with camera crews at Redskins cheerleader alumnae events, the organization denied she was a member. A lot of people are also claiming the Salahis owe them money.
