Read this: Are D.C.'s 'Real Housewives' doomed? Also: Hillary Clinton's State Dept. circle, Conan O'Brien's Twitter buddy


Hillary Clinton (J. Scott Applewhite/AP)

Good afternoon, everyone. Could it be that D.C.'s stable of "Real Housewives" may never make it out of the gate? Lisa de Moraes prepares us for this grim reality, reporting that Bravo was expected to unveil the cast during a new schedule announcement on Wednesday . . . but didn't.

Instead, Bravo "announced it had greenlighted a new 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' and made absolutely no mention of 'RHoDC.'" Ouch! Where does that leave our city's newfound reality TV show fame? And what about rumored cast member and now-infamous White House dinner crasher Michaele Salahi? Writes de Moraes:

A Bravo rep began to tap-dance when we called to find out what was up with "Real Housewives of D.C." not being mentioned in the network's upfront announcement, then finally settled on saying: "No announcement was made regarding 'Real Housewives of D.C.' "

Elsewhere in today's news:

  • Lois Romano takes an inside look at Hillary Clinton's first year running the State Department, and explains how Hillaryland -- her perpetual inner-circle -- has grown and diversified.

  • When Conan O'Brien joined Twitter last month, he decided to randomly select someone to follow. Her name is Sarah Killen, and she says her connection to O'Brien has garnered over 20,000 Twitter followers, "as well as a new iMac and offers to help pay for a dress and drinks for her wedding." You know, Conan, we're on Twitter, too.

  • A collector has donated 39 Harriet Tubman artifacts to the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.

  • The new White House social secretary, Julianna Smoot, "sets a new bar in bringing powerful connections to the job," Dan Eggen reports. "Smoot, 42, served as national finance director for Obama's $750 million presidential campaign, overseeing the single largest accumulation of political contributions in U.S. history."
