Following the airing of the first season, which was met with controversy and so-so ratings, the big question has remained will the Real Housewives of DC be returning for a second season?
Well, that answer is now a strong maybe according to Bravo’s own Andy Cohen. The Crushable website reports that during Andy’s recent appearance on the Live With Regis & Kelly show a little over a week ago, he revealed that Bravo would like the DC Housewives to come back for a second season but under one condition – that is with Michaele Salahi returning to the show. Wowzers!
According to Crushable, Andy admitted Bravo was “in negotiations” to bring back Real Housewives of DC but added that while the network wants Michaele back on the show, the other four housewives do not. In fact, they have reportedly banded together and refused to work with her.
Mary Schmidt Amons, Cat Ommaney, Lynda Erkiletian, and Stacie Turner reportedly tried to negotiate as a group, similar to what some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey did when they wanted to get Danielle Staub off the show.
It appears, the question now is does Bravo think the Real Housewives of DC is worth watching without the party crashing and compulsive lying of the Salahis? We can’t help but wonder if the DC Housewives will end up being another Real Housewives of Miami without the Salahis.
Meanwhile, Stacie’s husband Jason Turner recently commented on a previous story we did about Stacie traveling to Nigeria to meet her birth father and family.
In the story, we questioned whether the camera crew pictured with Stacie was from Bravo, and according to Jason, it was not. In the comment, made just two weeks ago, Jason also voiced uncertainty regarding a second season of the show. Part of Jason’s comment below –
“Contrary to popular opinion, we photographed and filmed this trip entirely on our own, since we feel like our (Stacie’s) family story couldn’t be “owned” by anyone but Stacie. So we partnered with Silverbird Group, one of the largest media companies in Africa, who provided a full film crew that chronicled over 30 hours of high def footage as we visited Lagos, Abuja, the Nigerian capital, as well as Owerri, which is in the southeast part of the country, where we met her birth family. As I write this, we don’t know what the future holds as far as a Season 2, but HW or not, we look forward to sharing what is an emotional, beautiful, provocative, intriguing, and super surprising story of one person’s search to discover something deeper about themselves.”
