D.C. lobbyist Edwina Rogers gets real-life-sick during shoot for "The Real Housewives of D.C."
In a guest appearance last week on "The Real Housewives of D.C.," Edwina Rogers gave the show its only real dose thus far of the-business-of-Washington: She's a lobbyist who dutifully talked up health-care policy. She also gave the slow-paced Bravo series a rare dose of drama: In a party scene taped last fall, hostess Rogers is shown being carted out on a stretcher and into an ambulance. It's an embarrassing moment, and totally cryptic; the show never quite explains what ailed her.
What happened in real life? Probably the flu. Rogers, executive director of the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative, e-mailed us that both of her children were sick with H1N1 that week; at the party, she took abruptly and violently ill in the ladies' room. "My staff called 911 and I went to GW for a few hours. The timing was pretty awful, but one cannot control these things. ...A dream situation for Bravo."
