"I'd almost like to go and live in Katmandu. I have very few regrets in my life, but this is the one."

-- Charles Ommanney on his participation in "The Real Housewives of D.C." in an interview with the New York Times. The award-winning Washington photographer, whose marriage to cast member Catherine "Cat" Ommanney imploded during filming of the reality show last year, calls himself "naive and foolish" for agreeing to be part of it.

Well at least one cast member has come to their senses. Living in Katmandu or managing a trailer park on the Gulf Coast of Texas would seem to be pleasant alternatives to being seen on the streets of DC after being cast in this show...Good luck

I feel sorry for this guy. Real Housewives totally ruined his life.

Reading the full NYT piece, I felt bad for both him and Cat. Love her or hate her, I didn't expect to feel bad for her.

Against all his better judgment, he agreed to do the show out of love for her. And now they both have to live with what they lost.

A very sad story.

I wasn't aware until I saw this "train wreck" show that Heather Mills even had a sister. That wasn't his first clue that this marriage wasn't made in heaven? Unfortunately, he doesn't have Paul McCartney's money to make it all go away.

Oh, that poor dear "photo-journalist", banished from the White House after years of being a favored Bush housepet and still in shock over the shut down of Barney-Cam. He must have been blinded by the reflected blaze of being married to Heather Mills sister and missed the cue that he was suddenly keeping company with the likes of Tiki Toy and Michale Salahi and that Erkel-itian woman.

My skin crawls!

Where is Andy Warhol when we need him...15 minutes can turn into 15 months...why are these grown ups complaining? Don't they get paid...good for child support, divorce, nice restaurants,making wine, paying off debts and possible book deals.

Apparently, Mr. Ommanney had no clue as to the nature of the "Housewives" shows which have been airing on BRAVO for some time now. I have only watched snippets of the "Housewives" and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how ridiculous it is.I wish Mr. O. all the best and I suspect that a man of his intellect and social conscience will one day in the near future be grateful that he realized his mistake and left "Cat" and her "friends" to their their foolish devices.

The only time I clicked past this odious show, Charles was making rude remarks about rural Americans to two little girls. Terrible manners & lesson!
