Okay, so not many of you know about my earlier post about Bravo's Real Housewives series coming to DC. I have an update on the DC part of the popular series. The Real Housewives of DC was set to start filming Friday September 18, 2009 BUT there aren't any women of "color" included in the cast!!!!!!!! WHAT?!? You mean to tell me that with the two most powerful women in this city being African American women there were NO African American, Latina, Native American, Asian women to add to the lineup??? I am sooo disappointed in this I mean dang...did anyone place a call to Michelle Obama, or Mrs. Fenty (wife of DC mayor Adrian Fenty)????? Now, of course with DC being so small the casting of the series was open to women in the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia. STILL not ONE woman of color!!! NOT ONE African American woman....ugh!!!
So far at least 3 women have been outted to be Real Housewives of DC cast members: Lynda Erkiletian (ownere of The Artist Agency, DC modeling firm), Mary Amons (wife of capitalist Rich Amons) Michaele Salahi (wife of Fauquier County winery owner Tareq Salahi). That is 3 out of the 5....Hopefully they'll place some color/chocolate in there somewhere to represent CHOCOLATE CITY!!! I was excited when I found out my favorite tv series was coming to DC BUT not so much when I heard of the lack of diversity they were watering the city down with!!!!
BLOGGERS WILL WE WATCH??? WHAT DO WE THINK??
