A Welcome Relief from NJ Housewives!
I have to say that the cast and crew held up pretty well since the notorious party crashing at the White House in November 2009. Granted, the Salahis are colorful, complicated and a contradiction of a couple. Anyway besides the Salahis, these housewives include Mary Schmidt whose grandfather was Arthur Godfrey (he has 3 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame) and was well-regarded in the country. Linda runs a Washington D.C. modeling agency, twice divorcée, and a bit of a know-it all. She has a longtime boyfriend, Ebong, who is from Nigeria. She has no intentions of getting married again and is content with her partner-boyfriend. Stacie is happily married to Jason and the mother of two children. She discovered her birth mother is white and her birth father is African in Nigeria. There is Cat who is British and can be wicked at times especially towards Michaele Salahi who she disregards the Salahis as trash. They can be quite mean but at least they are more diplomatic and can handle a reunion special. I love Mary. She's married to Rich and they have 5 children. She appears down to earth and the most diplomatic of all. She is willing to try to work with Michaele and even Tareq but they're crazy. But even in the end, Mary shows how to be classy and ladylike even with crazy. The wives here may not have the same drama as NJ and thank God. I was afraid for all of them. At least, I can relate more to DC than my own state.
