Desiree Rogers, White House Social Secretary, may have lost her job over the Secret Service gate-crasher debacle at the White House State Dinner for the Indian Prime Minister last November, but Michaele Salahi gained one. She will appear in all 12 episodes of the Real Housewives of Washington DC.
Although Bravo recently announced its pick-up of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the DC version was absent. That’s because “Bravo wanted to keep the Salahis participation under wraps until it could orchestrate its a coordinated publicity push via its fellow NBC/Universal outlets, like Access Hollywood and The Today Show,” the site says, although “the network’s real plans became clear when Time Warner Cable sales announced ‘advertising opportunities’ are now being offered for the Washington version of their breakout franchise.”
The cast of The Real Housewives of DC will shoot the intro and green screen footage next month, and it will likely debut in July. Look for a Bravo announcement around the time that the Salahis will appear on The Today Show, May 27.
We knew Bravo would not be able to resist! See you in July!
