Michaele Salahi, the woman who crashed the White House State Dinner back in November, is confirmed as a cast member for Real Housewives D.C.

You know what I’d like to know? What ever happened to housewives with class? I thought that was the whole point of the series — show housewives whose exclusive lives you’ll never get to live, not housewives who you could be like, if only you were crazy enough. These cast members — shameless White House crashers, nutso mafia wanna-bes, aspiring singers — all kind of remind me of Real World cast members, just grown up and with bigger spending accounts. These are the chicks that we watched get wasted on body shots at spring break, 20 years later, with bigger houses but more depressed and with a shitload more rat poison in their faces.

I want to see what it’s like for housewives in D.C. who actually matter, not housewives who would literally risk arrest to get their 15 minutes of fame. But I guess those aren’t the women who would vie for a spot on a Bravo series. It’s just like Countess LuAnn has been trying to tell us — money really can’t buy you class.
