Oh. My. God.
Never in my entire life have I laughed so damn hard to the point that I turned pink. I’m dark, brown skinned and I still managed to come out looking pink while watching this reunion. Has there ever been anyone as delusional as Michaele and Tareq Salahi? These two make NY Housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon and ex-New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub look sane. Sane, people! That is a bigger feat than climbing Mt. Everest in nothing but a speedo/thong without freezing your ass off!
The second part of the Real Housewives of D.C. reunion amped up the asinine display that is The Salahis, whose antics during and off season dominated the hour and raised the ire of the other Housewives, the Husbands, and even Andy Cohen himself to a whole new level. I’m still over here giggling…
The word of the night? Deny. Deny, deny, deny. The Salahis dodged questions like Neo dodged bullets in “The Matrix”, except The Salahis are not as deft and skilled at evading the constant barrage of questions thrown at them tonight. Most of those questions came from Andy himself (not his guide cards), who was just as frustrated by the end of the night as any sane, rational person would be.
From The Paul Wharton Birthday Party Snafu to the White House Gate Crashes incident, the Salahis plead the 5th by denying any wrongdoing and calling other people liars after reading their statements pertaining to certain events. The “evidence” they gave Andy and the other Housewives as proof of their vindication was just as laughable as when the couple is faced with reality. Lynda nearly came to tears at the craziness of it all, which goes to show how out of this world these two characters are.
Another crazy tidbit we learned was that the Salahis filmed their audition tape at this insanely huge mansion, which Cat and Mary claimed was borrowed for the shoot. The Salahis denied this, but at this point, can we really take their word for anything ever? Stacie also fell off the fence with The Salahis and got in their ass pretty tough. She even got attacked by Michaele at one point, making me wonder how could she and Jason share a couch with these imbeciles. Even Andy got defensive when Tareq declared that the public became more infatuated with him and Michaele after the media thought the White House Gatecrasher event was part of an audition tape to be on the show. I wished Andy had of gotten more defensive than he did, because that’s the second time the Salahis have implicated Bravo as having some ties to the controversial event. That’s not cool, and it sure as hell isn’t smart on the Salahi’s part.
Mary summed up her RHODC experience and the entire season by saying that they were “highjacked” by The Salahis. “You highjacked our show,” Mary declared to the Salahis, during one of the rare moments of silence during the entire hour. The sad thing about that statement is that while it is true, would we have even had a show without them? Now take that statement and apply it to a potential next season. Who will come back? Will the city of Washington, D.C. even acknowledge the Housewives after watching the first season? Will Bravo be dumb (or smart) enough to bring The Salahis back? To answer the latter question, I hope they don’t return back, only because what they did was a Federal offense and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Plus, if Andy’s reaction to Tareq’s claim of the White House incident being a stunt for a reality show was any indication, the Salahis are toast.
So now I ask you, Real Housewives fans. Would you watch a second season of The Real Housewives of D.C. with or without the Salahis? State your reasons.
They definitely need to re-cast and re-tool this show. I wonder what would have happened if Michaele had not been on, or if the White House drama had not happened. It just would have been too boring, these women aren't mega-catty like NYC or super campy like OC.
Keep Lynda, Cat (if she's still in DC? maybe she can be "transferred" to NYC?) and Stacie. Mary doesn't have much to offer, but she is a real socialite.. hmm.
Wow they are amazing. Do you notice that before Michaele speaks she turns her head (what the hell is up with her ratty hair?) and looks at her weasel husband? They did not answer one question with a straight answer. I felt like I was in an alternate universe. And yes, they did make Kelly Bensimon look somewhat sane…can't believe I just said that.
Sorry one more thing…I thought they had already said they were not invited back for the second season. Am I wrong?
How much more can they lie about? Just for their action at the White House they should be banned from anything in life and live in poverty or go to prison. What more can you do in this country and get away with it. Michaele is deff controlled by him, but she choose that for the money she thought he had.
The other housewives I love they are all very different and would like to se them back. But bottom line is our Goverment needs to wake up and take a stand, AGAIN
I guess I am one of the few that prefer these more cerebral women and topics to the other shows. DC Housewives is my favorite and the only women I can relate to. Especially Lynda and Cat, both very intelligent, witty and real. The Salahi's are an abomination and delusional. I am sure that they almost believe in their own web of deceit.
I WOULD ONLY WATCH IT WITHOUT!!! I CAN'T DEAL WITH THAT KIND OF CRAZY!!!!
I think there are several points. First of al with respect to the Salahis, what is there to say that has not been said here – just crazy and no we as Americans should not support this behavior. Further, how crazy was that at the winery – why would you invite someone that you felt their daughter had been involved in something as serious as they stated and then invite Mary? then to take it one step further, discuss it in front of your other guests? However, the show as a whole I would say has to be a pass anyway for more reasons…..I am disappointed to see how the others behaved as well. Mary, Lynda and Catherine sat on the coach and giggled etc like little school girls which did not shine to brightly on them as well – HANDLE THIS WITH SOME CLASS LADIES! Catherine – what is her point period – not even an American and involved in our politics – typical. Stacie plays it all over the board. At the end of the day they all were there to shine on themselves and self promote – I believe Mary did sum it up – the show was HIJACKED and they were not happy about it because they are all self-absorbed. If the Salahis really are not important to them -then why on earth did they spend their time discussing them non-stop and going to the extreme of checking deeds on properties to see if they owned anything, calling doctors to get opinions on Michaele's condition etc – why waste your time or energy in this direction – and who really cares about Cat not going to the Christmas party at the White House – that was the only point Michaele did have she is NOT even an American Citizen so boo hoo for her – go back across the pond – you simply are here to earn a buck let's face it sister.
Bravo would be smart to fire the Salahis as I feel they are too dangerous with their antics and limits Bravo's abilibty to film and even discuss them. The attorney is always interfering on behalf of Michaele & Tareq. Bravo could find themselves in big trouble if they continue to give the Salahis a platform for their nonsense. I, for one, am truly exhausted just watching and listening to their lies, it is supposed to be reality TV and I want real people, not a couple of insaniacs who monopolized the whole show. I agree with Mary, the show was hijacked.
Worst show on tv, with the worlds ugliest cast, including the men, especially Ebong and Lynda.
I think that Tareq Salahi has got to be the biggest horses' ASS I have ever seen.. no wait.. I take that back.. that is an insult to the equine species!!! I have never seen two people deny EVERYTHING like these people did.. they are a horrible relfection on this country. I really don't think that they answered 1 question directly. At one point, Jason told Tareq to "man up" I think that is impossible for that moron!!! If that were my son, I would be mortified! I also think that Lynda hit the nail on the head at Michaele.. I believe that he does have her "hand cuffed" to the dresser in the basement. Is love REALLY THAT DAMN BLIND! Doesn't she realize how ridiculous his antics are? Wow… God help us!!!
Everybody is mad a the Salahis and what pathetic liars they are, but please, stop for a moment, and see the other real housewives.
Cat is a big bully. I think she should go back to England where she belongs. She hates everything about America. She does not like the president and yet she is all whiny that they Uninvited her. What a phony. Oh btw she wants us taxpayers to pay for her medical bills .
Linda is a just weird and I have never figured out Mari. I think the only one I would like to see come back is Stacie, she is the only real women in this whole group!
I WOULD NOT WATCH REAL HOUSEWIVES OF DC WITHOUT THE SALAHI'S
you probably ARE the Salahi's, only they would be so stupid as to think that.
I've thought about that very question; would I watch the show without the Salahi's? Clearly they are delusional and not remotely trust-worthy, but they are like a train wreck–you can't look away. The storylines of the other cast members just weren't that exciting. (I actually think the same could be said for RHONJ now that Danielle is gone.) For DC, I'd love to see some more "high-profile" personalities and truly what the social scene is like for people who live or work on Capitol Hill. There is so much more with that show that Bravo could do.
I would definitely watch it again, the woman are not that bad, I do get upset with Stacie and her racial bull because as we all now know she is HALF WHITE. The Salahis are delusional and they shouldn't be allowed back on just because they tried to blame BRAVO saying it as for publicity. Does anyone really believe that?. I would also like to see more high profile people, but do any of these people know any?
I could not agree more and you finsihed what I started above.
My time is worth more than this. These "housewives", and I do mean all . . . are a horrible depiciton of the American wife, home and lifestyle. I would NEVER watch any of these ladies again.
salahi's were only looking for publicity for their bankrupt winery. Drop those liars and sponsor their new show on Bravo….Equestrian Make-Up.
As much as we love to hate the Salahi's, i cant stop watching this train wreck. Without them it would be a snooze fest with sub captions (english Kat, english). Andy does a great job during these reunions, but gosh, would really love to see him dig into some of the questions. If you sum up the DC reunion, the Salahi's auditioned in a borrowed house, lied about Michaele being an NFL cheerleader, lied about the Black Caucus dinner, lied about Polo Gear-Gate, lied about MS, lied about mortgage qualifications, were bankrupt yet stayed in the presidential suite and the Four Seasons, rented limos and spent $ like water (thats where the $81k in credit cards went folks), lied about White House. Andy, cmon, you shouldve smelled blood and went after it. I think Tareq should win the award of biggest douche husband of all Housewives series…Slade, pls take a seat, you are completely out played. When asked if Michaele went anyahere without her husband, those tears were screaming…."help me!" but Andy moved on to ask some other mind numbing question. I vote to have a RHO All Stars – Michaele from DC, Kelly from NY, Theresa from NJ, Vicki from OC, Nene from Atlanta and pick any one of the imbeciles from BH.
