The Real Housewives of DC – Where Are They Now?

Real Housewives of DC

The Real Housewives of Potomac has arrived, which certainly brings back memories of the good ol’ days of The Real Housewives of D.C. That franchise was hands-down the best one in the bunch, and the drama was REAL and unmatched. Let’s catch up with the cast!

Catherine Ommaney

Cat split with her White House photojournalist husband Charles Ommaney, in 2010, after being married for two years. They shared no children, but Cat has two girls from a previous marriage, and went on to have a third daughter, in 2012.  Charles went on record to the NY Times, saying that he regretted doing the show. He was fired from his job after gaining Bravo fame, and it has been rumored that he has struggled to score others, due to being recognized from the show. Cat went on to write her autobiography as well as a sequel, since the cancellation of Housewives. Cat was snarky, her accent was fun, and her hubby was adorable. 

Mary Schmidt-Amons

Mary divorced her husband of 26 years, Rich Amons, in 2012. She lists her skills on her Twitter account as designer, voiceover, actress, and “lifestyle.” She is friends with Potomac cast-mates, Robyn Dixon and Charisse Jordan. Mary’s naive indignation always cracked me up, and her ongoing battles with her wardrobe thieving daughter, Lolly, were ridiculous fun. 

Lynda Erkiletian

Lynda’s company, The Artists Agency, a model and stylist resource, is still going strong.  She is no longer with her boyfriend, Ebong. She classifies herself on Twitter as a mother, friend, and goddess.  As a side note, she was my least favorite cast member.  I found her condescending, and pretentious. 

Stacie Scott Turner

Stacie captured the hearts of many viewers, when she and her husband Jason set out on a mission, to find her biological father. Sadly, the couple divorced in 2012, after a 14 year marriage.  They have two children together, and Stacie maintains a career as a real estate agent. Stacie struck me as the kindest of the bunch, and I loved her cute short haircut. 

Michaele Salahi

Michaele and Tareq Salahi, otherwise known as the “White House Crashers,” because the duo dodged security, and attended a 2009 State Dinner without an invitation, were my favorites.  They married in 2003 and split in 2011. The breakup was triggered when Michaele ditched Tareq, and ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon. The couple married in 2013, in a pay-per-view wedding. Michaele is my favorite Housewife of all time. 

Her level of crazy was over the top, and the White House crash was the most epic Housewives drama ever. Who could forget the rest of the gasping cast watching the cuckoo couple plead the 5th, in front of a congressional committee? A high level security breach intersected with Bravo’s reality, and the result was the most eye-popping spectacle ever. 

The franchise was cancelled after one season, a Bravo first. Perhaps the bumbling political crossover didn’t do Bravo any favors, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Bravo’s second regional shot begins tonight, as The Real Housewives of Potomac begins.
