'The Real Housewives' goes to Washington

Francesberwick_bravo_290 Move over, Michelle Obama. Some other D.C. matriarchs will be getting the spotlight.

Bravo announced that it's developing a new "The Real Housewives" edition, this time set in our nation's capital.

"We're tapping personalities who are among Washington D.C.'s influential players, cultural connoisseurs, fashion sophisticates and philanthropic leaders," says Bravo's Frances Berwick, "the people who rub elbows with the most prominent people in the country and easily move in the city's diverse political and social circles."

Bravo is currently scouting the area for likely candidates for the show.

So far, there's no word on just how political the show could get, although we're already looking forward to the power suits. Oh, and if we can get another housewife with a title like Countess, that would be awesome.

Do you think this is a good idea? Would you watch? Are there too many of these shows already?
