Read this: A peek at "Real Housewives of D.C."; "Top Chef: D.C." debuts

Lisa de Moraes watches an advance copy of the first episode of "Real Housewives" and discloses that Michaele Salahi is front and center through much of it. "In butter tresses and designer dresses, she proves so phony she's authentic," Lisa writes. "Michaele may be the most authentically phony person in the history of the "Real Housewives" franchise." You'll be happy to know that the other 'Wives are shown snarking about the Salahis' polo match. And other funny stuff, especially as Bravo defends decision to keep the Salahis on the show. (See earlier: Meet the so-called 'Real Housewives of D.C.')

Meanwhile, Hank Stuever reviews the new "Top Chef: D.C.", debuting tonight. It "feels a day late and a dollop short." He groans as "the chefs are hustled to some cherry-blossom-related event at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, where, [Padma] Lakshmi enthuses, their food will be tasted by '300 young, successful Washingtonians.' Oh, no, not them." Hey, that's the one we got kicked out of when we couldn't sign the five-page contract!

"Most authentically phony". I like that. Is that anything like "genuine imitation leather"?

Tareq Salahi & Michaele Salahi who “Party Crashed” the White House illegally penetrating layers of security with no invitation, for the BRAVO Network, may be adding another lawsuit. Tareq Salahi & wife - Michaele Salahi known for their possible roles in the forthcoming “The Real Housewives of Washington” aspiring reality-TV stars from Northern Virginia who “Party Crashed” the White House's state dinner Tuesday night, illegally penetrating layers of security with no invitation to mingle with the likes of Barack Obama, Vice President Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel For the BRAVO Network, may be adding another lawsuit to the several they are already involved in. Dan Burns one of the Creators of 2005 #1 Comedy film “Wedding Crashers” had shopped around a Television Series he created “Party Crashers” to several Television networks and Film studios and still owns the rights to the “Party Crashers” Television Series concept. The Salahi’s and BRAVO Network Infringing on the rights of the premise and concept owned by Dan Burns is crossing a legal line after passing on the Television Series “Party Crashers” Dan Burns created. The Salahi’s and BRAVO had no comment, and Mr. Burns was not reachable for comment on the Pending Lawsuits.

Are you kidding me!!! Michaele Salahi and the rest of "Real Housewives" are no where close to real. Get a job, raise kids, be a soccer mom, drop the botox, tummy tucks and face lifts...your navel looks like a stoma for christ sake!!

I would rather watch a test pattern on tv than listen to these bimbos whine about cracked nails...

How about a real reality show about local heros...police, firefighters, military personnel who struggle with the stresses of their jobs and the risk associated with protecting the public or abroad...

The part that makes me smile....Salahi owes everyone money....come on folks get your head out of your tuckus and drop the show like a bad rash!!!
