Hot or not: How does Michaele Salahi’s song ‘Bump It’ stack up against other ‘Real Housewives’ singles?

It’s finally here.

Michaele Salahi’s song “Bump It” is now available on iTunes for your listening pleasure (or whatever feeling most closely resembles biting down too hard on your fork), making her the latest crooner to come out of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise.

Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame was the first to release a song, “Tardy for the Party,” in September 2009.

In June 2010, two more “Housewives” — LuAnn de Lesseps of New York City and Danielle Staub of New Jersey — regaled us with “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” and “Real Close ,” respectively.

Not to be outdone by the ladies in the group, New York City “househusband” Simon van Kempen dropped the single “I Am Real” this past April.

Click Track’s Chris Richards described a 30-second preview clip of the D.C. housewife’s release as “Salahi speak-singing over a wafer-thin dance track that’s even more flavorless than we’d have imagined.”

Tell us: What do you think of Salahi’s “Bump It”? How does the local songstress compare to other “Housewives”? Take our poll and leave a comment below.
