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!
