"Real" or Not, More Potential Housewives Emerge

Is it fair to assume that striking ladies of a certain age being followed by cameras are the "Real Housewives" of Washington? Maybe not. After all, they could just be auditioning for the in-development Bravo series, or up for a role in some other D.C. reality show pilot.

Last weekend, lobbyist Edwina Rogers drew quizzical glances at a polo match on the Mall, wearing a black-and-white fascinator and bright red lipstick -- with cameras in tow. Now two more women are arousing society suspicions, after swanning through the Thursday night opening party for the Ted Gibson Salon & Hela Spa in Chevy Chase -- also with cameras in tow: McLean doyenne and mom of five Mary Amons, and Fauquier polo/winery entrepreneur Michaele Salahi.

Both ladies were coy or silent when previously asked if they were signed on to the series. (And Bravo says it has not finalized its cast yet.) But another Thursday night party-goer saw a producer-type pull Amons and Salahi into a group with celeb stylist Gibson, saying "let's get a photo with our housewives." Hmmm.

Also pulled into the group photo: a glamorous blond interior decorator, who seems to be Not From Here. No one said that casting a passel of "real" Washington housewives would be easy . . . but will D.C. need to bring in ringers?

After seeing that fascinator hat, we can't wait to see what her house looks like! (Dishing the Dirt on Celebrity Homes)

I am a little disappointed in the feel of the show, based on the names revealed thus far. D.C. is a majority Black city, and not one of the names mentioned thus far is Black. Also, given the closeness of P.G. County and it being the richest Black county in the country, I do not see why they have not vetted some of the prominent Blacks in this area. Reliable Source -- you should inquire as to how they are going about vetting people for this show. Honestly, I'd prefer to see this show be on the forefront of the Housewives series and show a variety of women on one show. The others tend to be all of one type of woman.
