'The Real Housewives of D.C.' reunion preview: The ladies -- and gents -- come out swinging

Posted on

Image Credit: Scott Barbour/Getty ImagesThe majority of the drama on the first season of The Real Housewives of D.C was focused on the strange and confusing ways of Michaele Salahi and her husband Tareq (who is the unofficial sixth Housewife), leading up to the now infamous White House State Dinner last November. While the Salahis feel that last week’s finale left them “vindicated,” the rest of us were left scratching our heads. Are they for real? Thankfully, Andy Cohen is armed and ready…with a slew of tough questions (though he might want to consider packing something else after what went down during last month’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion). Some of the highlights include Andy to Cat: “Are you uncomfortable around black people?” Andy to Michaele and Tareq: “Did you get yourselves into the White House without an invitation?” Lynda to the room: “This is a goat rodeo!”

Although she considered herself the victim of malicious bullying by the other women, Michaele certainly isn’t holding back now. In Salahiland, being the subject of a national scandal is nowhere near as bad as being single. “At least I’m married,” she spews at Cat, who is going through a divorce from her photographer husband Charles. Ouch! I’m both happy and sad to see that the husbands/boyfriends were included in this taping. I find Jason, Rich, and Ebong (who manages to sneak in his own dig at the Salahis, making his Lynda proud!) to be nice, normal men who can defuse the situation when needed, but I’m truly sad that they’ve been forced to dive even further into this pool of crazy.

Will you be watching the reunion tonight, PopWatchers?
