REAL HOUSEWIVES OF D.C.
Where smart people come to talk about something incredibly dumb
The ladies shouted, Cat's a mean girl and Michaele was never an official Redskins cheerleader. Oh, you wanted more?
Before she and husband Tareq turned up at the November state dinner uninvited, they were notorious for their flamboyant polo matches and a long-running family feud over their Oasis Winery in Fauquier County.
She's the only one with any connection to politics: Husband Jason worked in Adrian Fenty's administration but left amid upheaval in the parks department. They've also hosted several fundraisers.
A D.C. newcomer, the British interior designer moved to the United States in summer 2008 when she married Charles Ommanney, a prizewinning photojournalist with Newsweek. Months after filming wrapped, the couple split.
A divorced mom of four, she owns T.H.E. Artist Agency, a Georgetown modeling firm that says it represents 500 models and stylists. (Bravo calls it "one of the top modeling agencies in D.C." We say: How many others are there?)
The McLean socialite and mom of five is a native of the area. She's the daughter of a telecom exec and the wife of a telecom guy, Rich Amons, a stylish fellow on Washingtonian's best-dressed list.
