How you know if you're the 'Real' deal: Meet possible "Housewives" star Stacie Turner

Stacie Turner.

How do you know if Bravo is real serious about making you a "Real" Housewife? If they follow you overseas. That's why D.C. real estate agent Stacie Turner is looking like a contender to star in the upcoming "Real Housewives of Washington." A source close to the production tells us Turner and her husband recently flew to Paris to see his musician brother perform -- with the show's camera crew on their trail. Turner, an African American mom of two, would add a dose of diversity: Though Bravo has not finalized the cast, the other local women whom producers have focused on recently are all white. She could also add a needed bit of political intrigue: Husband Jason Turner recently left his job with the city's Department of Parks and Recreation amid the upheaval surrounding interim director Ximena Hartsock. The family lives in a 16th Street Heights mansion that was a church before they renovated it (subject of a 2002 Post Sunday magazine story).

About time! Despite what some may believe, D.C. is CHOCOLATE CITY!!! The season finale for ATL Housewives received the highest rating in a Bravo series. That should Bravo something! If Turner is apart of the cast, congratulations to her and it may be worth watching for me.

I attended Howard University with Stacie and she is the real deal, really smart, Harvard MBA, sincere, great friend, classy, and always genuine. As an Atlanta resident, I cannot WAIT to see a Real Housewives show that I can be proud of, because the one we have is a trainwreck.

With just ONE sista on the DC housewifes, I won't be watching!

I certainly hope that the show enlists a 'cast' that is representative of the city. But it is NOT a 'chocolate' city. Merely 50% of the population is African American or black.

Unfortunately, she is not much to look at. I am guessing that the housewives in other cities will probably be more attractive than the DC ones. The people around here tend to be pretty ugly overall. Sad.
