One of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” editions has been widely expected to get the ax, and now the network has made it official, reports The Washington Post. The network has canceled "The Real Housewives of D.C."
“We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity,” Andy Cohen, Bravo’s executive vice president of original programming and development, said in an email, the story notes.
While "Real Housewives of D.C." pulled in a respectable 1.4 million viewers on average, the women on the show "were, quite simply, too dignified," the story says, in seeking to explain why the show was canceled.
When "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" debuted, it opened with 1.5 million viewers; it ended with 3 million viewers watching the finale as people sought to watch "blond, booby, overstated plastic surgery, major house porn," the article says. "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" was renewed last month, it notes.
