The deafening 5-month silence after the first season finale of The Real Housewives of D.C. had been pretty telling but today Bravo made it official, canceling the series, the first time a show from the Real Housewives franchise has gotten the axe. “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 told The Washington Post. Still standing are the Orange County, New York, Atlanta, Beverly Hills and New Jersey editions, with the fate of The Real Housewives of Miami up in the air. In the end, the too-proper-for-Bravo D.C. ladies were upstaged by the noisier Beverly Hills housewives whose first season finale drew twice the audience for the D.C. series’ closer.
