Celebrity Gossip Never Looked So Good™

The Real Housewives Of D.C. Are...

It's officially official.  "The Real Housewives of D.C." are hitting your boobtubes this summer.  Thursday, August 5 at 9 PM to be exact, according to Bravo's confirmaton.

 

And just as it was speculated several months ago, a YBF chick is in the cast.  She's Stacie Scott Turner, and she's one who seems would actually do us proud.  Unlike some others.  More deets when you read on...

There are 5 confirmed cast members, none of whom are typical A-listers, or even B-Listers, in D.C.  But I'm sure they'll make good tv acting like socialites. Here's Stacie's snippet:

Stacie Scott Turner, 42. She's the only one with much connection to politics: Husband Jason worked in Adrian Fenty's administration but left amid upheaval in the parks department. They've also hosted fundraisers. She's a Howard University grad and a Harvard MBA who worked in marketing at BET and other companies before becoming a real estate agent with Long & Foster. They have two young children, Jacob and Catherine, and live in a former church in 16th Street Heights that they renovated into a mansion. Jason's brother is a Paris-based hip-hop musician. Bravo's press release touts Turner's charity -- brand-new, by the looks of it -- set up to help teenage girls in foster care.

And, as you can see, Bravo actually let the White House crashers The Salahis on this show.  Sigh.  Read up on the rest of the Housewives over at The Washington Post.  Let the foolery ensue....

If I'm not mistaken isn't DC

If I'm not mistaken isn't DC 70% or 80% black, so why are there so many white bitches when they are 100% of Orange County, NJ, and NY. Blacks are always taking the back seat, even with all of our so-called political power, and celebrity types. I personally feel that black Celebes are treated like shit by mainstream media. Also, blacks today have as much self-respect for each other, as we did sixty years ago. As soon as we make money, we go out and purchase ourselves some white trash as our mates; we use all kinds of rationale to support our decisions. All the while, whites are laughing their asses off at the darkies, still trying to be white after all of these years and centuries. When I read about the black females like Sanna Lathan and others black females, as soon as they get their pictures on the cover of a magazine, or on the TV, they can’t wait to get a white man in their beds. Black people make the effort of racist extremist ‘s historical battles, all most self-filling, that we are less-than human, and without white blood, nigg…s, are just sub-humans, shift-less, and useless.

B4 I being I am a

B4 I being I am a professional, 29 yr old, black woman who was raised in DC. While you're correct in your assumptions about the percentage of DC's black demographic, 69-79% of that demographic AINT DOING NOTHING WITH THEMSELVES TO BE RECOGNIZED IN A POSITIVE LIGHT ON TV. Not saying that whites are, but the bottom line is no matter how many black folks you put together in an area, the "others" will be in the spot light because they're the ones that control the media. I do disagree with your comment about blacks wanting to be white by picking a white mate lol - because there are just as many white folks in tanning salons, injecting silicone in their lips to get darker and plumper.

Can't Wait for the DC Housewives. The Salahi girl is going to be the reason I watch this show for the first time.

She looks like a nice lady,

She looks like a nice lady, but she doesn't look like she'll make for good tv. She looks like one of my college professors and if she's high class and the real deal, she won't be on there long. I hate to say it, but she looks boring. I mean the real house wives thrives on drama. She looks like the type of person who isn't into drama, but looks are deceiving. I think she's going to be tossed like the basket ball wife from the 1st season of the real housewives of Atlanta. They should do the real housewives Miami or Dallas...now that would be some hot drama.

Now I know I DEFINITELY will

Now I know I DEFINITELY will NOT be watching! I love the RHO franchise (watch everyone except New York)...but seeing that they cast these posers Salahi's I refuse to tune in. And one sister made the cut? Big ups to the sis that did make the cut....she's educated and doing her own thing. I can't fault her for that...

The thing that has made most

The thing that has made most of the Housewives shows successful is that most of the girls have some type of connection to one another. It makes it juicer. It doesn't seem that any of these ladies truly know each other. I don't agree with the Salahis family being on there, but I guess Bravo thinks that it will drive people to watch the show. I do hope they would represent my area to the best of their ability, DMV!!!

I live in D.C. born and

I live in D.C. born and raised and I can tell you now... Don't none of these scary looking bishes represent our city. Bravo is on some reall bull shyt to have these old aszes representing our fun, stylish, polotical city. You have crashers on the show; why not have someone on here who doesn't have to crash a party. Why not have a women on the show that had a political invite. This show is going to be some dog shyt!

Bravo is DEAD wrong for putting only one Black Woman on the show....BOOO to Bravo..DC has plenty of successful women of color--I am not watching this crap.

WHAT???? Just 1 African

WHAT???? Just 1 African American woman on the DC housewives. The DC/Maryland/Virginia area has more successful black people than any other area in the USA. I'm just sayin!

Stacie is such a classy

Stacie is such a classy person! She will hold her own on the show. Also, DC is a place where most people are well connected and work in politics. I'm sure it was difficult to attract any "housewives" that could risk exposing their private as well as political lives in a public forum/reality show.

Reason number 4080 I am happy I did not fall into the you have to go to college B.S. All that debt she possibly accured and in the end she settled on a career that cost less than $1000 to pursue!

Did you really imply that

Did you really imply that college is a waste!? Do you realize how many people fought and died for the right to education!? Becoming educated is not a waste -- whether you are in college, trade school, or grad school. College is so much more than just a means to make money. It's a place where you find yourself, lose yourself and learn just who you are. It's a place where the seeds of your hopes and dreams are planted so that you can fulfill these hopes and dreams. It's a firm foundation. No one's sole purpose in life should be to make money and if this is your sole purpose in life then you, my dear, have a sad life ahead of you.

Um, actually, contrary to

Um, actually, contrary to popular beliefs in black society, college isn't around for the sole purpose of making money. It's (supposed to be) mainly about recieving an education, learning to have a global view, and getting cultured. I'm sorry you missed out.

I don't buy it. with her

I don't buy it. with her Harvard MBA she can take her real estate business a lot farther than your average agents can (not attacking you personally because I get that everyone is different, but a Harvard, or any top 10 MBA, cannot be devalued).

I disagree. She only gets

I disagree. She only gets ahead with people that believe in those labels. Any real estate agent can get to the top by being persistent and communicating effectively. and those things dont have debt attached.

I am not saying her degrees

I am not saying her degrees are worthless I am simply saying college is not the end all be all. I agree Education is the key not knocking that! But every field doesnt require one to have a MBA or PHD. Yes her education can help her sphere of influence for real estate but appearently not her common sense since she signed up for the Real Housewives franchise.

Sadly...ain't none of them

Sadly...ain't none of them women "wives" either...except for one. It's the producers of these show that need to get REAL because you can't be a girlfriend or ho and still get the honor of the title of WIFE. Kinda diminishes the whole idea, don't cha think? Bravo and VH1 execs put WIVES in the title for shock value and to appeal to the conservative viewship (but they don't watch that smut anyway)

I hope these black ladies

I hope these black ladies represent!!! THey should just be themselves. THere's nothing wrong with being broke or middle class. Just don't do like the ATL Housewives, showing off a mansion when you know good and gd well that it's in foreclosure or even worse doing the NENE: renting an entire lifestyle for the cameras. When you do a reality show, your reality comes out!
